I really just want it for the comic. The Treaty has only been printed in Shell Shocked and that super rare special edition of the Fantagraphics collection.

Hopefully some people only want the figure.

Have there been any reveals of the extra head without the hat? Looks like it's just the same head as the other head, just with less paint.

Anybody know off hand what the previous exclusives were limited to? I have all of those, and none of them were especially expensive to get both during and after the con...

This one is unfortunately apparently going to bring in comics collectors which a run of 350 failed to account for. I want the figure, but I sure as heck don't want it without the comics, it's a complete package. So I guess I have to fight comic fans for whom $250 for a couple of reproductions is apparently a reasonable proposition?

I really hope this is more obtainable than it seems, but limited to 350 gives me absolutely no hope.

I don't really care about the comic since I go digital nowadays (thanks iBook app!).

When will the standard version goes on sale? These 350 boxes seem impossible to get at this point.

Usagi's been out for a month or two already. But he doesn't come with multiple heads, Spot, or the banner.

There is no "standard" edition of this, just the regular retail Usagi.

No extras for the regular? That's a shame.

I still can't wrap my head why only 350? Playmates don't want to make money is it? With the new episode featuring him on tmnt the demand is sure to skyrocket. I can't with these bigwigs.

Is there anyone attending SDCC who would like to be cross-country buddies for TMNT exclusives this year? I'm attending NYCC this fall and could get you access to exclusives at that con in exchange. Send me a PM if interested.

Unsurprisingly it sounds like this is near impossible to pick up.

Sad part is these will end up on ebay for six times what they're selling for at the con.

I paid $120 on eBay for the one I pre-ordered. They are going for a lot more now.

Exactly my point, you got a great deal. I can't see these going for less than what you paid now.

I did the same. $130 But I'm counting on a "hey I wasn't able to grab one, I'll return your money."

Then they immediately list it for double the price.

Same here, talking to the seller though he seems genuine, also been told by another source that it is practically impossible and rules being broken.
