At this point I will just be happy to get my set. I can refund everyone who ordered from me.

Hm. Something is up with my order.

I ordered:

- 1 four-figure bundle

and

- 1 individual Leonardo.

According to my bank statement, I have been charged for one figure.

According to my e-mail inbox, I have just been shipped the four figure bundle.

No bank statement for the bundle, and no e-mail for the individual figure.


To anyone who has much experience with GS: Do they ever charge after shipping the product?

Or is it more likely that in all the mess, they charged me for a single, whilst sending me a bundle?

Got a call from my local GameStop (about an hour away)that my figures are ready to be picked up. Due to a death in the family they’ll be holding on to them till the eleventh.

I have a friend who is in LA at the moment, I asked him to visit a GameStop and see if he could find a set of these, but he couldn't. Are they even out on display in the stores? Is there anyone on here that lives in the LA area that have seen any? Or do they have to be ordered?

Just spoke to the user Super Goblin and he told me he went on a toy run to pick up his figures today and he said that it looks like most of the stores he visited within his community had little to no cases at all. Maybe one to two at most per store. So that comes out to 8-16 figures per district and if people are walking out with all four turtles it means that there is only enough figures for up to four people in the entire town. Pretty abysmal news.

That is super craptastic because I'm sure most fans want to purchase all four.

However, aren't these figures that GameStop will regularly restock or no?

I'm honestly not a big fan of GameStop so I ordered the one figure I wanted off their site. It always seems like a good amount of their merch goes on clearance within a month or so...like they rarely restock anything in-store, but maybe the NECA stuff will be different?

@NECA_TOYS FYI, looks like some GameStop stores are saying that the reason pre-orders are being cancelled it's because you didn't provide enough stock :/

I'll be picking my set up from ThinkGeek on Friday. I; along with just 2 others, ordered from them and they had it on hand since Monday but had to wait for the release date which is today.

Looks like my bundle wasn't cancelled after all. Yet there is still a lack of confirmation on the single Leonardo I ordered. I was charged but never received confirmation for the order or a shipping notice.

Seems like the whole thing is a mess on GameStop's end. I'm sure it's a lot of different roadblocks, because GS doesn't seem to run itself very well, but I have to wonder if they severely underestimated the orders they would get on these things.

I mean, that'd at least be somewhat of a positive for the future of Neca. GameStop is sure to see how well these things sell now, and hopefully attempt to continue the relationship with Neca.

Here is what I don't get Neca claims gamestop is the only place for the hensons because Playmates doesn't have a presence but they are doing target exclusive toon turtles yet playmates has a presence at Target #confused
