My lord, having the cape would truly seal the deal for me. I don't need it, but if done right, it could really add gravitas to the look.

Lordy, I need it! Bring on the shiny silver zebra print cloaks!

If it's not included, it would be a relatively easy thing to work up. I've seen some larger Batman figures use a wire armature inside a cape for posing.

I wonder if there'd be a place on his body to store it.
In the back of his waistband tie where he pulls it from.

He's coming with an cape you can count on it. Neca wouldn't skip out on that.

They will release him without the cape. Then 6 months later announce a second shredder with a cape and a few more accessories🤣🤣🤣

To be fair, we can't expect it. Toy companies that make movie accurate figures usually choose a scene to base the design on. So it could be 'final rooftop fight scene' Shredder (no cape). Or it could be 'Speech to young delinquents" Shredder (with cape).

I would not be at all surprised if he did not come with a cape.

Then again just thinking about it, wasn't someone from NECA on here asking info about the cape?? If so he will probably come with one...

I'm so excited for all the dynamic poses I'm going to get these guys in when Shredder finally arrives. What are we thinking? Early/late spring or early summer for a release for this guy? We're almost into December and we've already seen the Foot Soldier previews with no hint or idea on when that guy will be on sale.

Thankfully, I've been saving my Amazon cash rewards like crazy for when Shredder finally gets here and I can just pre order him from there.

I think I'm just going to grab the Giant Shredder and place him behind my four small scale turtles.

Like some sort of super cheesy "Shredder looming large over the turtle's lives" look that is sure to get me laid.

We know it will be sometime next month unless there is a delay, since the pre-order went up around two months ago.

For the Foot Soldier? It did? All I recall was the preview photos, but no real pre-order ... someone please correct me if I'm wrong with a link or something. =/

Oh yeahhhh ... derp. I keep thinking about when NECA releases figures via their eBay or Amazon and we have had yet to know of on sale date so that's where I got all messed up.

They're usually a few weeks late. This has been my experience, anyway. I haven't even pre-sold one. I imagine I will do better with Shredder, but I feel the demand has gone down now that there is a guarantee of these being released in 7" scale. I think I sold close to ten of Leonardo and the same number of Michelangelo so I would expect my theories to be correct.
