You guys cant let personal feelings diminish what NECA did for us by making these figures, no matter what they do with them im forever grateful.
Im wondering if other companies will follow neca similar like they did after cartoon turtles, weve got figuarts and mondo did mirage very similar to neca but poor quality.ID love to see other companies take on movie turtles... yeah no thanks playmates.
Theres huge money to be made with movie turtles and i hope NECA will milk it as much as theyu can and release much more stuff.

So the fact that NECA is distributing these on a wider scale shouldn't diminish the thoughtfulness of the gift.

I hope these aren't just all the ones they saved from scalpers from the earlier sales. Cause if that's the case they are probably gone.

Can we not combine shipping on these? It wants to charge separate shipping for each figure, which also forgoes the "free shipping over $35" deal

What's with the separate shipping when it's one order? What a rip.

Not a good look.
No, not a good look would have been if they announced it prematurely and then the deal fell through. They announce when they're ready to. They don't owe anything to us.

I don't think they owe anyone anything. I think they want to please their fan base and they need to be careful about how they treat them. Simple as that.

Personally, I'm sort of glad. Hard lesson to scalpers.

Itís like $20 for shipping.

We finally get these in stores and people are complaining.

Some of the sets on EBay have free shipping. Go buy those ones.

See, posts like these seem to bring more negativity to the discussion than someone complaining about inept shipping options.

Yes, I'm complaining about GS crappy practices nickeling and dimeing the consumer every time. I have never liked them and I never will. I only shop there when something is exclusive. Their business model revolves around taking advantage of parents and giving them pennies on the dollar for used games. I thought everyone hated scalpers....they are the ultimate scalpers!!

But seriously, who charges individual shipping per item.

1 Figure = 5.99
2 Different figures = 11.98
2 Of the same figure = 6.99

Just bad practice

I'm going tomorrow to see if I can get them shipped to a store without any shipping costs. I'll let you know how that turns out.

When I ordered mine it said shipping to the store was unavailable for the item.

How? I hoarded over ten exclusive SDCC video cassette boxes and pizza box accessories. I am now getting $30 a piece for these items on ebay. I will hold the last three turtles I have until someone who doesn't want to wait until February comes along.

I rode this wave out a lot longer than I expected I would...

Youíd make more money on the sets if there were less of them available. There may be a couple more people who want to buy a little pizza from you now but I have faith in the laws of supply & demand. Good luck trying to convince anyone otherwise.
