I want these but apparently not bad enough to order them through GS or pay a markup.

I wanted Splinter but with Gamestop pulling a shady 5 dollar mark up from the turtles price I refuse to support that.

Weren't the 24.99 price tags placeholders? They went back to 19.99 a while back and even though my pre-order still said 24.99, the employee said the final price is what I'd be paying when I pick them up, which was 19.99. Not to mention, they had a 20% off collectibles promotion that week too.

Yeah my price went up and then back down. When I went to pick them up I bought this tote bag and because all of the figures fit in it they were discounted 20% off. I have done this before when buying the Batman TMNT figures but I didn't know it worked with picking up pre orders but it did!

Same here. I had no idea pre-orders qualified but I think the manager, he was cool enough to just give me and my brother tote bags as soon as we walked in. We thought he was joking at first because we were near the collectibles but he knew we were there for the TMNT figures.

Wait, I think I got confused here. Haven't they always been 24.99? I remember they were marked up to 30 dollars before but they went back to standard price. Even the Turtles were 24.99 each.

I think you were right they were marked up to 30 at one point than went back down to $24.99 my bad.

No problem. But also, is it just me, or does Splinter's robe look nothing like in the promotional images? He's got more sex appeal going on with the leg and chest in the picture than the one I got.

I went in-store Saturday to pick up my preorder. Worked out Super Awesome! They adjusted my price back down to the original cost plus gave me the 20% off bag sale deal. I had a reward coupon too. I ended up with enough back to cover my preorder of Rita and Zedd. Web experience can be a bit frustrating, but my local stores are always good to me.

Yeah I had ordered doubles of the foot as well as Shredder & Splinter and with the 20% off my pre-paid pre order was enough to cover a Black Series General Grevious and $8 store credit.

I ended up placing multiple orders of foot soldiers so I should have 14 of these guys later today if I include the two that I picked up from the SDCC set lat year. I'm gonna try to replicate either the raph ambush scene or the final battle scene on the Neca diorama with the turtles, shredder foot and splinter

Be sure to post pics. I have the same plan, but will only have 7 Foot. Not sure if that's enough.

Hey so can anyone answer this question. Did Neca do any changes to Splinter's tail with the Gamestop release? The SDCC Capture of Splinter set has some issues of him standing up on his own, pretty bummed about it since I got that set on the pre-order originally. My favorite character even next to Raph.

Let me know. Thanks.

And to add to that, are there any differences to Splinter's deco? I had thought that his robe was to be less weathered, but it looks the same (as far as I can tell) in review videos.
