Exactly, not with all the accessories in each two-pack. There's a lot.

Never said Target should lower the price, but that it's disingenuous not having final price shown, which sure it's probably too much work for a company to bother to do when each state have their own silly sales tax.

I don't know if anyone was replying to me, but if so, I wasn't implying they are a rip-off. I've never even seen them in person.

Just wondering how they compare to the movie figures, since they are at a similar price point. And yeah, maybe I would have guessed that the movie figures would have cost more, if I had to guess, based on online pictures. Only because of how spectacular they turned out.

These look good too. I'd love to get my hands on them. Those of you pointing out the accessories have a great point, as well. I really appreciate those.

Yeah totally, each two pack is crammed full of accessories.

6 pairs of foot soldier hands
3 pair of shredder hands

4 turtle comms
1 shredder comm
1 slice of pizza
1 mutagen canister
plus all main weapons

Sales tax, what's that? The real "better" is southwest of you.



Not looked for these though. Pics I've seen look awesome, but that price is too rich for my blood right now. Esp if a person wants all the Turtles... yowza, a little steep.

Yeah, there used to be only two or three of us, but a couple more joined the group in the last few years or so.

Always been a plus living in one, but on the other hand it's often caused a moment of confusion when out of state and things cost more than expected because I always forget that sales tax is a thing elsewhere.



If I get over to Target one of these days I'll take a look and see if they have them in, on the off chance anyone is near enough to mine for the drive to be worth it.

I went back to the super Target next to where I work today. They had 12 two packs sitting on the shelf. Three complete sets basically.

Replies like this are why I hardly ever post here anymore. There was no need for you to be snide. You were complaining as if it was NECA or the retailer's responsibility to tell you the total price after sales tax. Buy a calculator.

Well, it should be a retailers responsibility to show the final price tag.

I got this nice little doodad called a cellphone, so I don't need a calculator. Oh, and I also live in a country that actually includes the sales tax in the price tag, so when a item costs $20, it's $20 not $25. We don't scam our customers with false advertisement.

In kind to what exactly? I fail to see how anything in my original comment was snide at all. It's like you're taking offense to an imaginary jab.

That Hooters just over the bridge is alright; otherwise, it all smells funny.

It probably works the same in reverse, though, I expect.

I live in Central NJ; it's all just one big suburb dotted with horse farms. Far North by the Tunnel and Far South near Philly is where the trashy folk live.

SO HUH!

The parts of Jersey I have been to are as gritty as an early Mirage TMNT comic

Thanks

It's just the 4 sets with the 8 SDCC figures separated into 2-packs at the moment.

We where shown Bebop & Rocksteady at toy fair and Randy hinted at a Foot Soldier 2-pack for army building on Twitter
