There are also minimum order amounts from factories. For instance, the factory may not take orders under 2000 units (a number I just pulled out of the air). Does Gamestop feel they can still sell that many units? They may end up eating product which they can't move. For a company in financial trouble, they may not be willing to take that gamble. They were probably surprised the movie TMNT figures sold as well as they did.

Do the bootlegs come in a package or are they loose? Iím looking in to purchasing a set of authentication from eBay, I just want to make sure I actually get an authentic set and not bootlegs.

All I can say is...WOW...£85 for the set of 4!! That's an incredible price if you ask me!

NECA does an ultimate figure line for some franchises that offers different interchangeable heads and accessories that were not included in the original release. Could you ever see NECA doing this with 1990 line? I really would love to see a closed mouth Mikey figure. Doubt it will happen though. I just thought with the success of this line that maybe it would be considered.

Keep in mind most of the Ultimate releases were a collection of the various re-releases of the same figure that offers slight variations from different accessories to different head sculpts included all in one set.

The turtles don't have that unless NECA start releasing Turtles with different head sculpts which I don't see it happening as so far the only difference is Gamestop version having less accessories instead of different sculpts.
Also still unclear how the Turtles license NECA has signed on. Hopefully we get some clarification during SDCC. Lots of people just don't know how to ask the right questions instead of "Will this be released?"

All good points. Just wishful thinking on my part. If they release new head sculpts with the same bodies and the same accessories, I would still buy them. Seems like a no brainer way to make money but Iím not sure how the licensing works.

Yeah. My guess is if there will be secret of the ooze figures planned we might be seeing turtles with new headsculpts and different accessories. But we'll see.

Makes sense. Way to get more money out those molds. I'm down for some SOTO figures, but I don't think I will get more turtles. Too similar to the 90's, and I like them better. Super Shredder though. That I'd grab. Probably Tokka and Rahzar too. One thing I hop they do is a SOTO OOZE Canister. I didn't get the original one, but a clear Movie II version I would get that.

I still don't think I have ever seen another company so terribly underestimate the demand for something as what Gamestop/NECA did for these figures. I also can not believe that neither company has said "Oops! Sorry for our stupid mistake! We are making more of these so poor saps are not forced into buying knock-offs or taking out a second mortgage to buy them on EBay."

With the news of the international markets being opened up I keep seeing people say that US Gamestops are going to be restocked, but I guess that's what we're all hearing and I'll believe it when I see it.

Speaking of SOTO figures, though. If they do another Turtles set and they have new head sculpts and varied accessories, I'd be down to have another set of Turtles. Super Shredder, Tokka, and Rahzar are MUSTS. Wouldn't mind having a Keno either. haha

once again NECA is saying its gamestop's fault . Neca on instgram says we do not handle distribution we produce what Gamestop orders and they allocate to their stores.

Hmm. Never had a problem with Kapow...

I dont know if these ship to your country, but some more UK stores:

https://forbiddenplanet.com/catalog/...se-date&page=1

This is one of the biggest UK chains. I order from them all the time.


https://www.comicsandcocktails.co.uk...les-p140485005

You can also find the seperate figs if you look through the NECA pre orders page. I have pre ordered the 2 pack tmnt with these guys.


https://www.geekeffect.co.uk/search?...inja+Turtles+7

They do have all 4 brothers, but you need to search down the page a little.


https://www.indemandtoys.co.uk/produ...ovie-set-of-4/

I think they also have the 4 brothers seperately but you'll need to search the site. I have ordered from these guys in the past.


Hope this helps.
