Yeah. If likeness rights are the issue I will gladly settle for masked Casey.

Randy said in an interview at Toy Faur that he's working on the likeness rights for Casey and April so I beg to differ.

Judith Hoag has done TMNT panels since the Nick acquisition and even had a scene in OOTS that was cut. We will get April.

If we get a Judith-April I wonder what is the most likely outfit she'd have. My guess is that it would be the yellow raincoat from early in the movie. But I'd prefer the look from the "Am I behind on my Sony payments again?" subway scene.

@NECA_TOYS any chance we'd get a April O'Neil/ Casey Jones 2 pack?

Cartoon - probably
Movie - probably not

Sorry to burst any bubbles for those expecting movie April

They asked specifically about a 2-pack though.

True. Someone should ask if there will be a SDCC movie set that contains April

Why would NECA make 1:12 versions when their other TMNT stuff is 1:10? You want Foot goons an inch shorter than the turtles?

Not sure if you're just being obtuse or you genuinely are that dense.

I think he just meant not 1/4 scale.

Likeness rights really are a bitch. For some reason NECA seems to have the most issues with this.

Probably a cost issue. Big companies like Hasbro and Mattel can pay more than NECA is willing/able.

Plus, likeness rights are included with a lot of the modern licensing deals for stuff like Marvel movies. NECA makes figures based on older properties that didn't have these types of deals at the times the movies were made.

Strange. I would think the obvious deduction would be that I made a mistake and was referring to the 1:10 scale. Plenty of context clues there. See how easily Coro figured it out?

Next time, maybe slow down and use some critical thinking.

Oooh, psyched about a cartoon version, but I wish there could be movie versions. I totally get it though. Licensing is a bi**h.

If you've never done this before:
Load multiple tabs- 1 in the action figures section and one in the SDCC2019 section. After 2 years I still forget which one populates first.

Pro Tip
F5 key is refresh on all browsers. Click in window anywhere and mash F5 till they appear.

Pro Tip 2
Get your account logged in and your paypal one touch setup and ready to go hours before go time on the machine you will be using. This is the fastest way to check out.

Pro Tip 3
Get on there early. I am central time, but I have seen them hit the site up to 12 minutes early. Mash F5 till you get them or they sell out.

Yeah I know all the other info. I've been successful every drop of Necas. I just can't remember which page to refresh.

Thanks for looking out regardless though. Sure someone else will find it helpful.
