This is disappointing. You would think they would be trying to crank this stuff out quicker.

Think of it this way-- the more time, the better quality. The better quality, the more money you can make schlepping flipped accessories.

I have a feeling that the margins are just insane on the 1/4 scale line. If you check Amazon or eBay you can see that the TMNT are the only 1/4 scale figures that are really holding their value. Just look at the Homecoming Spider-Man or the Doctor Strange. They have fallen below 80 retail in some cases.

I think this incentivizes them to crank out this line in far faster fashion. In addition, they are building an excellent distribution for the 1/4 scale line as a whole by moving the volume they are.

You could just take a picture of your screen with another mobile device. Just turn your camera flash off.

Even if he's at SDCC he won't show up until right around Christmas probably.

At this point a sneak peak at sdcc would be enough for me right now. If itís out by Xmas great! I just hope they nail it which I expect that they will.

well, atleast there is hope. i do hope they take time and make it something worth dying for. Especially shredder since he is so iconic.

Would it be a waste of time to hope they shrink these down to 7" scale as well?

Neca is really big into milking a mold to death, heh. It's why I'm not confident that we'll ever get a Splinter of any sort from them.

So yeah - I expect anything in the quarter scale to get a smaller release too.

They'll do Splinter. Randy said when they first revealed Donnie that he wanted to make an Splinter. So It will likely happen.

Think they'll bring Shredder even if he is not done?
