i'll be skipping vacation B&R just like I didn't care about the bunny suit ones. Gotta cut corners somewhere cause NECA is relentless with these releases.

Anyone know if the First to Fall Last Ronin Raphael was a NECA store exclusive or will it show up in other places like BBTS and Target?

We need an Ultimate Shredder already! I’m gonna try and hold off on buying any new releases, especially variants of the same characters, until we get a new and improved Toon Shredder. The 2017 Shredder for SDCC is terrible, arguably one of the worst figures in the line, but probably because it came so early in the line and they didn’t know how long it would last or if they get all the licenses etc. I get it so that explains all the reused parts and shortcuts.

Well, it’s been 7 years, it’s time, we need the first ever officially licensed 100% cartoon accurate Shredder figure, c’mon NECA!

Hate that I couldn't find the set while they were offering 20 off 100.

The Punk Disguise turtles and Pizza Club turtles are on AliExpress. Search ‘Leonardo NECA’ and many offers will come up.

Looks like Rocksteady and Bebop are getting reissued once again with more cartoon-accurate box art. Good! Glad these guys are still going to be in rotation ... with the Turtles now getting their reissue and the giant Krang for this fall, I bet that an Ultimate Shredder may be planned this year too.

Yeah, I struck out across the board. Super annoying, but what can you do.

So the new Turtles are a different color than they've previously used for the Turtles. This decision baffles me (and helped to dissuade me from picking these up) as you can't really use the alternate expressions with the figures you already have.

They do it on purpose man. They don't want any true modularity because it helps force the consumer into buying "the next release". Of course eventually someone will release a statement to cultivate simps and peasant-thinkers into their defense - "they couldn't do it because there was a manufacturer change who couldn't match the paint exactly so shut up!".

But it's all by design to vaccumn up sales in small, manipulative ways. Any "true value" for the consumer wouldn't be constantly loaded with these small inconsistencies.

Website featuring the coolest stuff on Earth that is all fake or falling apart. It's like when you ordered something from the ads page of a comic book back in the day and when it showed up it was a piece of cardboard or something...

I went ahead and got the Don lab. Tried to resist but NECA always gets me with their “don’t miss out, last chance!” sales pitch. It will likely stay boxed up for a while, haven’t even opened my first NECA lair dio yet. Just seems like it would be a huge hassle with all those parts and figuring out where to put the huge dios. I still need to get a scalped van and maybe the cartoon street dio if I come across one. At this point I think I’ll go for the Pizza Club Turtles if I find them in store, but so far haven’t seen any.

I also ordered the lab.
I'm more than happy with my Turtles in disguise. I got a later batch so they're not so shiny.
Just waiting on the kitchen now. Hopefull it's smaller and not so expensive.

From what I've seen, it seems like the Underground Arsenal van is a better representation of the Fred Wolf van. Honestly, I wish I would've bought that one....

Stayed strong, no lab. Gives me more funds to put towards the party wagon if they ever give us a 2nd chance at it, which they apparently said would happen.
