To each their own, but to another point entirely the NECA line really would be great with BAFS. Hell, Krang's Android body would've been a perfect candidate for this!
I do agree with you about the video game stuff though - basically all of the video game variants are easy passes for me as well. I'll stick with the FW accurate stuff.
Yeah, Android Krang as a BAF would be great! I don't expect him being a super poseable figure. Just screenaccurate and big. So a BAF figure totally suits him imo. However, when I look at the way Neca is making money I don't think they will include all body parts with other figures/sets. I expect them to just sell it as a Deluxe figure for $50 minimum.

But not enough to buy because he doesn't fit very well with that paint deco. So I won't buy both of them. Leatherhead will be a must have for me! Can't wait to buy Leatherhead, April and Casey seperately but it's taking Neca forever to release them

Sh*tty idea. I rather want them to focus on more important things. Splinter for Christ sake! I don't think many collectors are waiting on a far too big random Monster...

That is the thing about buying them separately. It will be out of the package. I want them in the package, but in doing so we get a second figure we don't want. Was it ever explained why two packs and not singles?

I prefer to have them in packaging offcourse, but I don't really mind if they are out of it. A lot of eBay sellers sell them while they're still in the plastic bubble/tray.

I believe something with the licensing has to do with it. They aren't allowed to release the cartoon figures sepeately.

I wonder how the Neutrinos would be released since its an odd number?
General Tragg vs Dask
Kala and Zak
Lieutenant Granitor and rock soldier

So many options, but I can see repackaging with different figures and generic foot soldiers messing this up!
At some point i really wish they'd start making vehicles.
Party wagon, blimp, and gulp... technodrome?

I mean, it's not unheard of of Neca to be making bigger than usual figures.
They did make ED-209 for robocop.

NECA stated 2-packs were necessary because their price point had to be over $50 for Playmates to agree to let NECA sell in Target.

Haha, guess we should be thankful that NECA didn't just start charging $50 per single figure packs!

No more foot soldier please! I will take the ones that come with April and Casey cause I have no choice BUT I don't want to see any foot soldiers after! We have the "army builders" so if anyone wants to get more of them they can. Don't force us collectors to buy more! :/

I think we will see Splinter at Toy Fair next month so fingers crossed for Rat King as well. Neca also teased Granitor and Tragg so I'm expecting to see them and maybe Android Body Krang. Super 7 will also be shipping their 1st wave soon-ish so I reckon we will see Baxter

Dang. Splinter and Rat King would be an awesome 2 pack. At this point I'd settle for just about any company doing some vehicles for our 6 inch scale turtles.

Wave 2 is apparently being restocked at Target, FYI. If someone ends up with an extra B&R and would want to hook me up at cost I'd be mighty grateful!

Good luck to everyone that missed them the first time.

If Randy is to be believed there will be a lot more available this time around.

But nobody should believe Randy.

Pretty possible since all'a you's are expert martial artists an' sh*t. You probably spin-kicked someone and took theirs. Or you ninja'ed it. I'unno, something.

I watched TV in the 80s, man, you can't put one over on me. I'm hip to You People. People who are literally born wearing those black hooded pajamas have an unfair advantage in the wild. Everybody knows that.

All jokes aside that's a nice-looking set. Good for you.

Man, the more I look at that the more I like it. I might have to piss a chunk of my tax refund on buying these online.

The question is, is there something about the accessories or paint in the new Shredder/Krang that means I need this when I already have the SDCC pack?

I think it's just a re-release with the original toon logo.
