Nice. Not sure why you’re quoting me for this, but keep it up.

You keep saying "he got what he deserved" but what I keep getting is the last laugh.

Look, I know that's the impression you want to give off - that none of this affected you negatively. Sure, that's fine.

At this point, all I can say is good on you for helping out overseas buyers, and it's too bad you had to miss out on future sales here by making a dork of yourself. As much as you sell now, you could have surely sold more to members here had you not acted out.

Now, if you want to come in here and brag to us about how much money you're making, in general, with your business, that's another discussion. I'm not one to compare paychecks and pay wages with others, because it feels sort of tacky to me, but you do you.
I have a "friend" who is always talking/lying about how much he makes and it reeks of desperation. Really tacky topic of discussion, and you find it typically comes from those who don't actually make much money but desire it as a status symbol.

.................................................. .................................................. .................................................. .................................................


As for the topic:
How many sets/figures is everyone buying? Normally, I'd feel silly admitting that I'm buying two of each turtle (one to display, one to keep in package), but I tend to be a bit of a minimalist with my collecting, so I'm letting myself splurge a little here. Essentially, just for having the comfort of knowing I have a backup, should anything happen to one of the figures. Talk about overly attached. And we haven't even met yet.

As for the future: I'd def love to see Shredder in the smaller scale and I'd certainly buy a Casey Jones as well. After that, I'm ready for Neca to move onto another TMNT line. I'm not sure if that puts me in the minority, and I'm also not sure if that's even something that's possible. I'm pretty sure Neca expressed in the past that the movie line has the right type of nostalgia and demand, whereas other TMNT lines may not have that fanbase, but given how well these are selling, they have to be considering some other TMNT figures.

What would you guys and girls like to see?

I'm dying for another Comic book line from Neca. Volume 1-4 Mirage/Image or IDW. I tend to hope for more off-the-wall, niche TMNT figures that have little to zero chance of being made.

For instance, I'd love to see Image figures over almost anything else at this point. City at War figures, based heavily on Lawson's art would also be up there in my most-wanted list.

But you know what I'd take over both of those? A two-pack of Raphael and Casey from "BodyCount". And I don't even really like that book, but hear me out on the potential for this:

- Unique Bisley design could lead to a TMNT figure unlike any other
- Awesome two-figure packaging, plastered with Bisley and Eastman art
- Pouches, pouches, pouches, swords, guns, and grenades - I love when figures have sheaths, pouches, and other functional ways to attach the figures accessories. These figures would look "over-the-top" in a great way.
- You don't have to read it

No, it's not likely, but these are the types of things I hope for.

For anyone else who missed this article when it was originally posted in late September. A few interesting tidbits in there, regarding the production of these figures.

Thanks for that article. It's good to know that Shredder and the Foot are planned.

To answer your question, I am buying one set for now but I am hoping that at some point Gamestop will offer a sale (similar to Black Friday) where it's either 25% off or BOGO 50% off. I don't often shop Gamestop so I don't know if that is a realistic hope or not? But if I can get a second set at a discount of some type, then I would love to have that happen.

As long as we're talking about lines we'd like to see, a line of Neca IDW figs would be awesome. Hob, Koya, Sally, Bludgeon, and Baxter, off the top of my head. Slash, Leatherhead, Mondo, Ray, Karai, and Casey to round it out. And the turtles/Splinter, of course.

Well... refreshing to see when I venture back to the thread we are still going back and fourth with Latin Kings...

I think it's safe to say nobody gives a flying crap what you recently scalped something for... like is this all you live for is coming to this board and gloating about your the latest person you ripped off? I wonder how many of those sales are gonna wise up and end up as a Paypal dispute?

But seriously, enough all ready. Can we please get back on freaking topic please?

I haven't had an eBay dispute in a long time. You deal with a higher class of person when you are selling action figures in the $50 to $100 price range.

Anyone here know of a firm date for these? The Gamestop guys were saying originally January, now they’re saying February. From experience, I know it’s hard for them to know for sure on figure’s release dates. Just wondered if any of my fellow shellheads here knew anything more?

I'm having my doubts about the 6th. These aren't even on NECA's shipping calendar yet. I really do want to be wrong though.

Same here. Was a little nervous to ask because I thought someone might just yell at me for not finding the answer myself ten pages back. But when I tried that and saw that the tread mainly consisted of trolling and other such nonsense, I figured it would be okay to try asking.

This would be awesome, and probably easier to get being target and not GameStop

Sounds like the 2017 SDCC set split up into four 2 packs. That's cool for people that don't have them, but sounds like I wasted money getting them from NECA directly just like the 2018 set which is now cheaper at GameStop.
