Yup, my partner didn't get home in time, no dio set for me.

Man... this is worse then the Masters of the Universe Classics sales.

Guess I'll keep an eye on eBay when're a set goes for a fair price, I managed it with the NYCC villain set, so maybe I'll get lucky eventually.

Had my info saved ahead of time, got through the line, got through Paypal, go to submit the order then it asks me for my phone number. Why the eff wasn't that already in? I start typing it in and tap autofill and it replaces the entire form with an old address. Then they were gone.

I haven't been so mad in I don't know how long.

I didn't try yesterday (was on the fence), but got hosed today. Not sure if I'll try again tomorrow or not. I kinda want a set of the figures, but don't care much about the dio. Kinda bland IMO. Of course after today's snafu, I imagine many may go for the dio bundle tomorrow during the last gasp just to insure they get the figures since it sold out slightly less fast.

These are cool and all but I agree with those that have said the quarter scale versions are probably good enough for those of us that have them. I really expected this year's exclusive to be more than just the small versions of the 1990 Turtles and a re-purposed dio they plan to sell more of later anyway. Doesn't seem all that "game-changing" to me, like others have also said. I think last year's set was much, much nicer overall.

Good luck to everyone tomorrow. I may try again. Not sure. I think the scalpers were after these much more than last year's set.

I'm losing hope.

If anyone is willing to sell an extra 4-pack for a reasonable price (e.g. $125), please PM me.

I don't trust the NECA Store, and it's probably going to screw with me tomorrow.

You offered me $100 for just the turtles.

Stuck out at work with barely service to update NECA store, so pretty much SOL.

I have an extra SD17 8 pack if anyone wants to trade for Dio.
Hit me up if interested.

Good luck guys on 3rd day.

I really want it for the price it is selling for on the NECA store. Not $300 for a 4-pack of plastic figures. That's too much.

This set is so unnecessarily difficult to get. Why NECA still allows 2 per person is beyond me, since everyone's reselling (like someone selling it for $500). Hopefully I can snag one tomorrow, but I doubt it. Seriously, no one needs 2, since a ton of fans have none.

Totally agree. Getting two sets is pretty selfish when some can't even get one.

I'm trying on a different device tomorrow. How do you set your PayPal on the website?

Once again the wait in line BS started again and it felt longer than the one from yesterday. Then yet another hold up was the shipping options were loading. Why does that need to load?! It didn't need to load yesterday! Then the site tells me that my payment information expired so I had to scramble to paste my card number and retype my name, expiration date and CVV. Sure enough, it sold out again. This is seriously ridiculous and frustrating
Yup that's what happened to my partner, who was trying to order it for me. Crazy ********. How can 5000 go so quickly? I didn't know there were 5000 1990s TMNT fans this hardcore in the world.

I doubt the number of sets available on the online store was 5000, they need stock for SDCC as well.

You can be mad at NECA for setting a limit of 2 instead of 1.

But you can't be mad at a die-hard collector for wanting 2. That's pretty standard operating procedure for a collector, for an item/line he REALLY likes. For backup, for parts, to keep one in the packaging for display, for whatever other reason... Don't call your fellow collectors selfish for doing what NECA permitted them to do.

Buying 3 would not be selfish either, if it were allowed.
Buying 100 to scalp might be selfish.
There's a line in there somewhere but it's not 2.

My guess is NECA just programs a time limit before closing the sales. So it will say sold out no matter what after a certain amount of time passes.

Then NECA counts up how many units got processed in that amount of time. If only 3 people ordered then it would still say sold out after the pre determined time is up.

Even if zero orders came in it would say sold out after the window of ordering is closed.

Itís not 400 hypothetical fans fighting over 200 hypothetical sets. Itís 400 hypothetical fans fighting the computer to jam an order in before the round of ordering is closed.

Just my theory but Iím not certain. I could be absolutely wrong. Or 100% correct.

That's a crazy short time limit then!

There's like... no chance they'll change their mind and make these more available, will they?
