Is NECA dropping a clue as to an OT April figure?

No. It's not even their picture, they've just reposted the photograph of a fan who's being playful with the Turtle Comm prop.

I laughed at the sarcastic comment by bark4soul:
"April most of us have derpy eyes cause no one checked our qc"

NECA is getting roasted on a lot of the comments. I didn't know some people were still having issues getting the sets they ordered, that's a bummer. I'd rather deal with some of the poor quality control on my set than not have gotten them at all. I hope they can get everyone taken care of now that SDCC is over.

This. I've had some derpy eyes but people want them anyway.

Issues as in their sets haven't arrived yet? It hasn't been that long since they shipped has it?

I've seen several people on here and elsewhere saying they've had shipping labels created with UPS, the they get cancelled, then get another shipping label from FEDEX yet they still haven't been shipped in some cases, although some have. Also NECA sent an email saying these would be shipped to arrive as SDCC opens. I saw on Instagram some people said they are waiting on stock to fulfill their orders.

Customer service has been shotty at best so far on these which is making people frustrated, but I think we are all hoping now that SDCC is done everything will soon return to normal and NECA will get everything taken care of. I'm not mad, my issues are derpy eyes on 3 turtles and a foot soldier with a head that is wonky and I'd like replaced. I emailed them last week, they responded a couple days later and said they are aware of all the issues with these sets and are compiling information and woking on a solution and they'll be in contact about a resolution. I'm glad I have a set that arrived on time and I still have faith they'll make it right.

If NECA keeps making figures based off the old games, I'd love for them to make an Aska or War. That'd be really cool!

War is actually an Archie character first & foremost, but I'd totally buy a figure of him.

Not sure if Aska could be made. Isn't she owned by a third party?

Hard to say. Some say she's an original character created by Konami, but in the Japanese release she's called Mitsu, so she may well be a re-design of Mitsu from TMNT 3. Muddy water + little to no demand = likely not to be done either way.

I'd buy her.

I don't see NECA doing a dedicated original toon line, with all the re-used parts for Shredder and Foot Soldier, and going back and forth between OT and video game style paintjobs, but who knows. Even the vinyl carrying case of the 2017 SDCC set, as nice as it is, the artwork is a different style TMNT. If they were serious about the set being toon accurate, the artwork would be something straight outta the OT, like screenshots or something. Even the NECA Mirage Comics figures box art was true to the source. Would have been cool if the SDCC 2017 set came with OT backdrops, like the arcade set did.

Only the 4 turtles and Krang are truly 100% toon accurate, all new dedicated sculpts. Shredder and Foot Soldier's re-used parts from the 2008 Mirage Comics figures stick out like a sore thumb, to me at least, for example: Shredder's arms and legs look too thin for his upper body with the shirt on, since OT Shredder was pretty buff. To me Shredder looks too thin compared to the TMNT. Wonder why they gave Foot Soldier new arms/armor but not Shredder. Just seems like the set was a bit rushed for SDCC instead of taking time to make all new dedicated toon accurate sculpts for Shredder and Foot Soldier.

Sticking w nostalgia

NECA added,
TaskMaster @Uncanny_X_Force
@NECA_TOYS You have done many variations on the TMNT. Is there any possibility you would do the current @IDWPublishing designs for them?

Guess it's smarter from a business standpoint, but a shame all the same.

IDW TMNT has only been around since 2011, they're "too recent" I guess for these type of figures.
