Check the West Mifflin Target. Found a whole set there.

Guarantee they get Cartoon color repaints or repaints to the OG figures which would be easier.

Ill take a set for retail plus shipping if you want. I need a really good Leo set as mine has slight damage and the cape inside the box is kinda stuck under his chin/neck area all weird. I would like to display 1 set in box.

Is there any way to order a set online for retail? I checked BBTS, Entertainment Earth, and came up short.

True. Hopefully Krang comes back soon and can do some true moderating. Sometimes I feel bad for the dude. I mean, he constantly posts here and everyone just hates and rags on him, rightfully so...but it's kinda sad, and I think he needs a new forum to pester. I mean imagine being that guy. Probably sucks.

As for the toys, I have a feeling (knock on wood) that these will be easier to obtain than the GS exclusives. I've been wrong before, but I'm going off the fact that Target seems like an all-around smarter, aware, and more prepared company than Gamestop. I still need to get my hands on one of these as well.

I have a full set for someone looking to purchase at cost plus fees. Each set was $56 after tax and ships ground for around $13 and priory for around $15 depending on location. Add %3 PayPal fee if not sending payment via family/friend. Iíve already sent out Leo set and raph set to fellow members that arrived safely. If no takers Iíll sell on eBay with 10% mark up (eBay takes 10%.)

I can vouch for Booger Eater. Got my Leo set from him at cost (after shipping and fees) and was packaged very well. No scalping, just a Tmnt fan looking out for other fans!

Booger_eater! is awesome, he got me the Raph set and sent it securely and fast. It's awesome that he's doing this for people when he certainty doesn't have to.

I bought a complete set from my local Target and they had three complete sets there. I went back a few days ago and they still had two complete sets there even after a week and a half later.

This is the first time in my life that I've been angry about living in central NJ. I go to this damn Target every day - next closest one is a half hour out of my way - and they haven't done a damn thing with this yet.

Either the scalpers are out in full force OR this store just doesn't care about TMNT products. Which I understand, kinda... they seemingly haven't moved a single Playmates TMNT product since the first BayTurtles movie came out... but Playmates stuff sucks. The (deserved) lack of interest in those toys shouldn't push them to not bother with far superior ones from an altogether different company. It's frustrating.

I got fed up waiting and spent that money on other things. So I'll have to wait at least a week and a half before I look again. HOPEFULLY this place will have them by then. I know it's a spotty roll-out - some stores getting an abundance and some getting zero - and that's bad enough by itself, but reading about people having already found multiple full sets while the place I shop at every day apparently isn't even interested in getting them is irritating.

I'm happy for people, but LAWD, when's it gon' be MY TIME?!

Thatís the first time youíre angry about living in NJ? No offense, maybe you need to start traveling. J/K. Anyway, to whoever asked above, I live in central Florida on the west coast.

It's generally very awesome. I've known a few people who weren't from here who didn't care for it, but they're generally huge pussies who we don't want up here anyway.

"J/K" (not really).

I haven't harassed anyone. You're butthurt because you need to refund money to people now so *I* can fill their orders.

Anyone hear that? Sounds like desperation from someone who says they donít need to sell to anyone here.
