I picked up a couple of Ultimate Casey Jones(es) but the SotO Shredder and Turtle 2-paks sold out almost immediately. Thought about picking up a spare toon B&R but they sold out in between cart and checkout process.

Super thankful I was able to get that SOTO Shredder this morning before my cat's appointment.

Feel like a chump for going the eBay route back in the summer for the SOTO TMNT 2-packs, but at least I got them!

Crazy how fast stuff sells out. Only wanted to pick up a sota Shredder. Guess I’m going to have to go through the bay (sigh)

I forgot all about this until just now. Disappointing on one hand, but on the other I suppose conveys the general apathy I'm experiencing about NECA at the moment.

I got an alert about them going up and went to check the site, by about 5 minutes after they were already gone. I wasn't super excited to pick them up so I just shrugged my shoulders.

I will see if I can get some on Cyber Monday, if not, whatever. I'm fine with the 1990 movie versions.

LOL? Doesn't that sound way worse than when neca put up the SOTO turtles 4 pack, the SOTO shredder and the re-issued tokka+rhazar pack in their neca online store?

These are still up at the Neca Store.

It’s been nearly 30 minutes for SOTO Shredder and Brothers

I was surprised they were available on my 11:00 break, thought they’d be long gone before then. Now to play the waiting game. Think we’ll get ‘‘em before fall?

Definitely a lot sooner than that.

Since these arent pre orders, I assume they are ready to ship.

Hopefully by Christmas!

Very strange ... I've been checking the neca store almost daily for the past few days (for some weird reason) and all I (still) see are batman, halloween and freddy figures.

I sniped for the SOTO 2-packs the moment they were put up on monday. Since they sold out immediately on friday I was worried it was gonna happen again on monday, but they were still available a few hours later. Hopefully I'll have them before Christmas!

I almost passed... but when they went back up for Cyber Monday I figured either get em or probably regret it later... but four equal spaced-out payments via Shop Pay makes deciding a lot easier.

And we should all be very thankful that the stock lasted for a long time. Super fast sellouts might make for good viral marketing, but it's bad for consumers. People deserve a reasonable window to get in on stuff like this. If every turtle item NECA listed on their store had the window of availability that these SOTO two packs had, I'd be ecstatic.

Agreed. Credit where it's due, it's great that these lasted so long Monday.

Something that still bothers me though... why "sell out" so quickly on Friday? Did they just magically have more show up over the weekend? Maybe it's as you say - a little viral marketing on Friday so that we can be more consumer friendly on Monday?

I guess in the end I can't complain. I got the figures I wanted. It just seems like an odd bit reasoning to me. But, I'm no retailer, so...

Question for people who pre ordered Tokka and Rahzar from NECA… I here these are shipping now and a lot of people have gotten theirs already. Has anyone actually had an updated tracking that they could follow and was accurate???? My tracking number says label was created (been saying that for a week now) but has not updated at all or apparently has not shipped. I have heard people online saying they just received them at their doorsteps with out getting a tracking number, so I’m trying to figure out if anyones tracking actually worked? I was out of town for thanksgiving and just want to make sure that they weren’t stolen off of my front porch and hopefully just not delivered yet. Anyone have any insight into this?

Yup. That’s exactly what happened to me. Mine were waiting for me. Total (welcome) surprise!

Did you ever get a tracking number eventually and did it ever update?

So, I think I owe you an apology - after you asked, I went back to my inbox, and hadn't thought to check spam. I did receive a tracking number, but the package had already arrived when I realized it, and so now, it just says "delivered." But, yes, I did receive one.
