NECA 1987 2-Pack Collection at Target

Well, the rumors were spreading last month that the 1987 figures from NECA that were released as SDCC exclusives back in 2017 would be making their way to Target.

Not sure how this photo got out there but looks like the rumors may be true after all.



Exciting stuff!

Interesting find. Two questions: 1. Is this the replacement for the never released Cowabunga Classics Shredder and Krang? 2. What is Target's asking price?

According to the article ...

Quote:
The sets will include Leonardo, Donatello, Michelangelo and Raphael, as well as Krang, Foot Soldiers and Shredder and would be priced at $51.99 for each 2-Pack.

Apparently, it's the lead singer of Coheed and Cambria's son. NECA is located outside of Jersey and so is the band. Whoops!



Randy's response. lolololol

People who collect toys and keep them MISB should have their collections taken away and banned from further collecting.

As far as I'm concerned, they're worse than scalpers and bootleggers combined.

These are the darker (not pixelated) variants right? Is it possible to order internationally from Target?

It would appear so. I don't think it is possible to order these from Target. I don't think the NECA stuff is on the website.

I hope mine gets a Donatello. Mine needs a new Bo Staff. Plus I wouldn't mind having more than 2 foot soldiers.

Wonder if they'll consider a Gamestop version with the Arcade turtles.

You can see in the image that it's the cartoon colored figures and not the Video Game Appearance figures, the Foot Soldier have the more cartoon accurate sculpts.

I was wondering about international too.

Anyone know if Target toys/exclusives make it onto other online stores, like BBTS and such?

Anyone think we'll see more about this at ToyFair next weekend?

They do sometimes (on BBTS I have seen for sure)...often at a 2x markup (or more)...

Tesco in the UK seem to do a lot of Target exclusives - somehow I don't think these will be among them.

by that logic i should go upstairs and open all my soft head figures, and my 92 Target exclusive 4 pack, or my Movie Star figures? i completely disagree with this statement. nothing wrong with keeping figures MIB/MIP. my collection is massive and most of it is unopened but i enjoy how it displays all the same. i may miss out on some action poses but if i like the package display what is it hurting? i dont keep things sealed for profit as i never intend to sell my stuff. i really do enjoy looking at the package and the work that went into it

Initially I was intrigued by these, but I think I have these Turtles in the best presentation set ever: that classic style collectors case.
Have I opened it ? Yes.
Is the set on display in the case ? Yes
I like to display figures both loose and, in their packs. Letís be honest, Iím not likely to start playing with these figures with my mates, well...
Anyways, my displays are mixtures if in pack, out of pack etc
Example:


Hereís a shelf that is essentially all loose.



This is an in progress redesigned display.
All figures are sealed, but vehicles are all unboxed and built (including stickers).



And this sort of demonstrates that there are different packing types, making for interesting display options.

Thing is, some figures or product looks cool in packaging, and others look cool out if pack. Me, I like yo use both methods.

I wish theyíd package these like the current Game Stop 1990s movie Turtles. Just keep it one figure per box. Iíve never been a fan of 2 packs. If itís the only way these are released, I guess we canít complain.

Why is it so hard for me to imagine what Necaís B & R figures would look like?

I canít wrap my head around it. Iíd just hope for a lot of cool accessories. I need manhole-shieds and laser blasters.
