That store is also only up charging 5-10 over retail. Taking into account taxes I’m ok with this.

Yes, true, that CAN be another option. See this pin? What do you say if we just stick that to that option.

Lol.

I'll check them out. For a while I was thinking about getting the vendor license through NECA's process for my store, but I don't think I could order anything in any economies of scale to justify it.

I technically still have my NECA vendor license, BUT....


These are target exclusives if you recall.

Only thing going to the small guys are the Arcade ones at this point. The margin on NECA stuff is pretty good. No reason to not carry NECA if you can get their stuff. I got restock notices on the 1/4 scale turtles, but I had closed down at that point.

I appreciate the information. I'll check it out on "store 3.0" as my next move. I took a look at CMDStore - my only thing is that they are already 5 bucks above retail - in of itself not bad, but once you have shipping and tax where will the price be at on the two packs?

I'll keep it on hand though as an option. I'm falling way behind on this line. I have several ordered, but I've still never seen an April or Casey two pack. Never saw the promo colored Turtles or the Foot 2-packs either.

I’ve still managed to keep 100% on collecting this line. 2 of everything cause I’m a box and loose collector. I ordered 2 of each of the ratking and splinter sets from CMD which was 268 after shipping/taxes. So I was up charged a total of 20-ish which I would have had to pay target anyway.

At least that’s the way I see it....

Edit: I don’t have the leader trikes yet either but I will

Pretty cool but I still feel like this is a skip for me. I've already got two normal Foot and two damaged and I don't care about the Alpha character. That police hat would be kind of nice but I don't see $30 worth of value for me personally.

This combined with my likely hood of being able to get it at retail makes it likely pass for me too.

Yeah, I'm not buying that when the only thing I'd even remotely be interested in is the new head. I don't troop build, but I've already been "forced" into 4 foot soldiers as it is.

If we are basing the ultimate foot soldier off of some inspiration from the Archie comic book I would think this would be a bit more bulky. This looks like a normal soldier to me but this is for the toon line and not Archie

I mean yeah. It's a cool bundle, but it's basically a Foot Soldier with a ton of accessories. This could have been an accessory pack, but hell if it was they'd have charged the same thing for it anyway, lmao!

Agreed 100%. Definitely do not see an Archie influence here - not that there was supposed to be, but I know what you mean with the head.

But as I pimp it every chance I get - I'd be down for a Lawson or Mitchroney inspired Archie line in a heartbeat. That would truly be my last TMNT hurrr-ra.

Nope, I never knew they were a thing lol. Then, by the time I did the 2nd wave color varients turtles were sold out, just my luck. I got into these very late in the game. So far I have Zorak two pack, Casey Jones/foot, Bebop Rocksteady, Shredder/Krang only.... no damn turtles smh. I do have both arcade turtles waves.

That sucks. I literally just the other day sold a wave 1 Raph/Foot 2-pack. It was one of the only extra 2-Packs I had. I bought a second one by mistake early on.

Had I known I would've let you know. Seriously maybe like 2 days ago I think.

They are planning a 4 pack of the trench coat ones. Hopefully, they will be regular turtles underneath for people who missed the earlier waves.
