Heh, that's gotta violate some company policy! Then again... this is NECA we are talking about, which uses scalper prices as a buyer incentive means.

So what I'm hearing is the best way to get Neca figures is to work for Neca...

What a piece of crap. If I'd see him I'd punch his face, key his car, sleep with his wife or girlfriend impregnate her and watch as he raises my kid then wait as he gets older to tell him I'm his daddy and if he wants to spite his "dad" to give me all his Neca figures.

Guys I think this line is about over, or at least for any non-turtle-variants.
The 15+ sets of Baxter/Splinter that refuse to sell across multiple Targets near me for weeks/months now is the sign.
I can understand nobody buying Baxter, but...Splinter? The writing is on the wall.

LootCrate seems set be the future of this and probably all other lines.

A movie splinter/shredder set has likewise sat at my Walmart for weeks now.

Highly doubt it. NECA announced they have 50+ figures dropping this year alone spread between the 4 lines (essentially 3 since they are semi putting arcade on hold). And truly how many more figures are available to do for the movie line? Yes Splinter is everywhere- but that’s because they did a massive run on him. Rat King, however, manages to continue to allude consumers from what I hear... I wouldn’t know from experience as I got one from Target Online ...when they sold out in under a minute. Not sure that you can use splinter as the litmus test.

Rat King is in the warehouse because he can't fit on the shelf with that many Splinters still out. If they made extra they made way too many extra. I've also been seeing more of the triceraton and rock soldier releases showing up and warming shelves.

Tragg and Granitor and Trceraton Infantryman and Roadkill Rodney have been sitting at my local Target for two weeks. I have the rock soldier pair already and not many seem to want the no name Triceraton and robot.

Still looking for Rat King to be restocked. I will continue to check past Easter then go to EBay.

Did Target or NECA say that Rat King can’t fit on shelves? I don’t remember seeing that anywhere and I’ve been following this line pretty closely. And believe me, there is plenty of space for him here in NJ. Traag/Granitor and Triceratons are hitting shelves again to meet demand as they also sold out so quickly. And if this past year is any sort of an indicator with how the rest of this line was near impossible to get, TMNT’s Toon line is shaping up to be one their most successful runs yet. If NECA continues to put out other stock like Toony Terrors, Godzilla, or particular horror lines that warm shelves for a much longer duration, I’m not sure it’s a safe assessment to say the TMNT Toon line is over. Again, what line would the majority of these 50+ TMNT figures belong to? Not trying to argue here at all- I’m only going by information being put forth by NECA and my own empirical experience. This year will be a surprise for sure.

Not peg warming at my Target. Just finally available. Scored the Trceraton 2 pack Wendesday. Hoping more restocks show up. So nice to actually be able to buy this in-store. Hope it keeps up.

This line has another 2 years in it or more. The lineup that is coming along with the leaked lineup this year along with still a decent list of characters they can do.
