I wouldn’t worry. They can essentially run this forever now correct?

I’d just wait and get an answer from NECA. Hopefully they will continue to restock.

If a lot of peope will buy these then theres bigger chance for more stuff from TMNT movies by NECA.Im happy more people can get these, sure we did pay a bit more but were first to own them , gamestop buyers have to wait so that counts as well.

AWESOME!

No biggie about the pizza & ooze, someone could always resin cast those for us...

I definitely won't argue on NECA's behalf anymore. They straight up lied!

But anywho . . .

Watch those folk selling on eBay drop those prices quickly LOL! Some have already started.

Yeah I know business is business but what an odd decision for Neca to have lied about this when the reveal was coming up so soon.

Not a good look.

Do you guys think they'll restock? I missed these by a few hours. Never before has "you snooze, you lose" felt more true!

I don't see why not. If Playmates collects a royalty on every figure sold, why would they limit how many could be sold?

Hope you're right. These things sold out in under 12 hours. And I just wanted Donatello & Michelangelo.

To quote Raphael... DAMN!

It's the old Playmates motto, why collect royalties when we can bar them and sell our cheap ass crap. Not saying that's what is happening but Playmates are dicks and I wouldn't put it past them, that one and done

Seriously. This news has me on the ceiling. This was a total bait and switch. First Neca over hyped the presale and told us that these figures were one of a kind and would never be remade, then they went to twitter to specifically state and shoot down rumors that said these were coming to Gamestop, then they delay shipments to the point where some folks still haven't gotten their sets in, and after all that they come out and say "Hey, you know those tmnt movie figures you ordered from us and were led to believe that they were super special and there would never be anything else like it againl? Well...I hate to pull the rug out from under you guys, but....NOT!!! *Yoink*

I am mad as hell right now. I'm mad that I spent $250 on my set and diorama when I could have gotten a single set for $88 and change. I'm mad that I bought a set for my girlfriend as a two year anniversary gift only to have to tell her the news that these figures aren't so one of a kind anymore. And I absolutely hate that I had to find all of this out less than a month after I got these figures from Neca.

I'll tell you one thing that will come out of this, and that is I will never ever buy into another one of their presales. I'm done. I can't trust them anymore and I certainly can't take them at their word. So why bother? They played me. Hell they played us all.

Well that came and went before I even noticed.

Those who were mad at me for daring to question NECA’s motives or methods are eating their words now!

I will try to buy some if I hear more proportionally about well done figures and not defective ones.

Yeah, some people here try to act like they know everything when it comes to this stuff, lol

Hopefully, there will be some that show up inside the Gamestop stores because the more I see them, the more I want them, lol

Just out of curiosity, what did you consider the gift to your girlfriend-- the toys or the exclusivity.

Then why did you buy a diorama set and not just the 4-pack that was $125.

Ans the diorama still have a exclusive paint job.

A buddy of mine is a Gamestop manager, and the moment they revealed this, he sent me a text saying that the rumors are true, and the preorders were live. I very quickly jumped in the car and drove out to get them preordered. I'm still feeling all tingly inside!

I bought the set for my GF because she is a huge tmnt fan and she used to love watching the movie with her older sister when the two of them were little

I ended up getting the diorama because that was all I could secure at the time. I didn't get the set for my GF until after the presale was over from a guy who gave it to me at cost.
