Best way to live your life and set expectations, in a nutshell. Easier said than done, of course.

He was off in his claim that since Bebop and Rocksteady were the only new releases in Wave 2 is what made them so hard to find and that by giving us more new releases in future waves that would somehow make the demand less for new releases

agreed. i love neca but the way randy refuses to accept responsibility for under supplying r&b is not okay. it's not scalpers faults. it's not target's fault. it's not "part of the experience" to hunt around endlessly. it's specifically your fault, randy. just admit it, accept it, and do better. that's all. just ramp up production and shipment. scale. that's literally all that needs to be done.

Don't worry, by putting Leatherhead/Slash together, while splitting April and Casey, now everyone will want all 3 packs from the next wave, making them all impossible to find.

exactly! I don't get why Randy thinks it's okay to drive around endlessly wasting gas,miles on the car (and time) looking for figures only to constantly end up with nothing. Any Retail stores carrying toys just flat out suck anymore. It's always the luck of the draw.

Sadly, every one of these Exclusives I will be forced to pay double from scalpers because stores can't keep these in stock or because employees (and scalpers) buy the whole case of 3 (because stores only get one freakin case to begin with). This is one of the hardest lines to collect and that's because there is never enough to go around.

Seriously?! I've been chasing that error head Raph. Please let me know if you can help me out. Sincerely.

I have a normal one I'd be happy to trade.

He did tell me what he makes off those DVDs, though, so I'm sure he's doing just fine.
People still buy DVDs?

Good to know. Do you pay upfront or when it comes in?

What makes the Raph head an error and not? I wasn't aware of this.

Any idea when these will show up on Walmart.com? Or, at least the re-releases of the 90’s Turtles?

His mouth is different, showing all of his teeth. When I ordered the bundle from GameStop (the second time it went up after the initial release), I received this figure. I didn’t realize it was an error. I just knew it wasn’t what had been shown online and what others had posted getting. I read on here some time ago that NECA said it was an error. I was going to contact them to see about getting replaced if possible. I don’t know if it is actually worth anything. I’ve seen them online with the same figures I’ve gotten. Then I saw it in store at a GameStop and Think Geek.

I know I can find them all on ebay for decent prices but I get a thrill out of not really knowing what I will find. Prime example, a few years ago I found the Green Jumpsuit Channel 6 April figure in a mix bag of junk for a dollar. That was awesome. The neverending search for a wild Scratch figure for a few bucks at an antique store or in a yardsale box being sold by someone who doesn't know what they have? I do that all the time. I probably never will find one but I refuse to buy one on ebay because it ruins the fun and once I buy that, I have the holy grail and have no need to go looking.

Hunting Neca Bebop and Rocksteady? F*** that. They are brand new and all over ebay. I'm not wasting time and money driving all over for them. That isn't fun to me because they should be readily available. I will eventually find one at a Target and when I do it won't be a satisfying event because of the thrill of hunting. It'll be a f***ing relief because it's done and over and I don't have to find them ever again. I gave up on those two and stopped going to Targets just to find them. Instead, now when we go to Target to get other stuff I casually look, of course hoping they are there but not expecting to find them.
Agree with all of this. If Randy and Neca want to give people a HUNT make a variant or limited edition of some sorts. Like Mcfarlane does with his sports licenses. Or Funko with their POP chases. BnR are important characters to the TV line why make them limited. Poor way to handle everything.


I really hope Walmart and Neca follow the same structure of GS. Preorder and have extra stock in store as well.

Super Shredder looks to be hitting Wal-Mart shelves in August, but based on these two Tweets ... Tokka and Rahzar will be able to preorder elsewhere?

God, I hope not. Unless they significantly up the quantity they're making available, it's going to be a total crapshoot getting these.
