I think Patience will be rewarded big time and don't pay secondary prices means they are trying to find a better place for the 90's turtles. ya target does terrible with the fw figures, but gamestop ****ing bungled the movie ones.

That or scalpers took them beforehand. Also they need to have a bigger supply to meet demands. I know Targets in my area that only got 1 shipment from the 2nd wave. Since then, nothing. I hope that wave 3 has a larger supply shipped to every Target store

I can attest in my area I ran into this wave FAR more and far easier than the 1st wave at every single target in my area.
Oh we got them. My store got three sets in on the day that they seemed to hit across the country. And that was it, the one shipment. Have you seen any evidence of restocking? I sure haven't at any of the stores I've been to and haven't seen anybody mention it online. They did one giant shipment to stores and one small stocking online and that was it. Meanwhile the first wave was restocked twice at my store and was readily available for months.

Big restock happening within months time. With Shredder and Krang two pack mixed in as well. Shredder and Krang will have retro logo, maybe, just maybe the bebop&rocksteady pack will too.

Sculpts look exactly the same so I think not.

The sculpts may be the same, but the spots indicate SOTO.....I'd bet my bottom dollar!

Yep, social media is ablaze with everyone's photos of Splinter and Shredder. I got mine too, and they are tremendous.

How did you do it, cut it or wrap it round twice?
Has the tail on him been improved or still difficult to get right?

Just a heads up...

If NECA made a ton of these like they claimed and you are on the fence, GS seems to run their 25% off toy purchases of $100 sale every few months. I believe one just passed, but it could be a great opportunity to build a foot army!

I got the reg turtles for like $17 each that way (with free shipping). I HATE GD, but I was very pleased with that.

Got mine yesterday. The Gamestop employee gave me a tote bag to get them 20% off and I ended up only paying 80 dollars. I didn't think I would like the Foot Soldiers as much as I ended up liking them.

OK I went a little heavy on these for pre-order. I have 3 sets and really only need the 2...if anyone wants these for something reasonable let me know before I return some to GS.
