I think there is a prevailing vibe that the van might be exclusive to NECA online much like their cardboard-boxed cityscape last year.

On Instagram NECA stated that the van was online only.

Like the toon diorama/mousers, this has been marketed by NECA as made to order.

I'll probably join the "NECA Fan Van Club" when they reuse the mold for the Channel Six News Van (and maybe it'll come with a toon-accurate news cycle too).

They've definitely repeated that Target as a partner has no interest in carrying large ticket items, so yes I have to agree that the van will likely be a webstore exclusive the way the dioramas were. If you didn't get them this go around, you'll just have to wait and hope they do another round of preorders.

On that note has anyone paid attention to that diorama on the aftermarket now about a year after it shipped?

Just an update to my incorrect shoulder on my Donatello from the TID pack.

I messaged Neca's support email and within a week they emailed me back saying they would send out a replacement but didn't give me a time frame. I left it at that as I wasn't super concerned about it so I didn't bother them again about it.

Well over the weekend I got a package from them with the correct shoulder (and arm) from them. No notice or tracking.

But I was genuinely appreciative. It took over a month I think, but they got it to me.

Lucky you. I've been emailing NECA's customer support for months now asking why I still haven't received my Movie Accessory Pack. Still no answer. It is infuriating how difficult it is to get a proper response from these people.

Ditto here, for multiple issues with their recent shipments from their own store. No response whatsoever. Zero accountability.

Well, speak of the devil. Today I received notification that my shipment has arrived in Sweden. There was a picture provided of the package and the label says it's from NECA so my Accessory Pack is finally here.

Lol I sent another note last night and got a reply however, they basically just skates over the issues. Some really odd plastic funkiness with my Antrax hips, like the plastic didn't mix properly and also the joints are loose as hell. They said that the plastic is a film that can be peeled off and for the hips to use floor polish. Lol. Okay guys. I'm no stranger to doing some of the doctoring up on my figures but for the premium that we pay on some of these things it would expect a little bit more from them. Of course I kind of know how they are so I guess I shouldn't?

Had a similar issue with Super7's Rocksteady where they told me to fix it myself. It's on me for continuing to support them, but I'm with you - for these prices, the QC should be near-perfect.

Has anyone seen any updates about when Tokka and Rahzar are supposed to hit shelves? Sorry if this has been asked recently.

Not yet. As of right now, Tokka and Rahzar were only limited release to the Costumes.com website.

I really hope they replenish the supply for toon Tokka and Rahzar. There's not too many of them going around in the wild. Currently, aside from some of the color and video game variants (and a few quarter scale figures), I'm more or less all caught up with the modern NECA line....I just need toon T&R!

They haven't even released yet technically. They'll drop, get snatched up initially because people are thinking it's finally another flippable set, and then they'll shelfwarm like crazy like all of the other recent releases.

No box shots or OOTP pics yet, but Usagi and the Mousers have hit China.

Thanks for the info. Missed out on Usagi, and these mousers at what seems a good price? Can't remember what they were on the NECA store.

I've bought some knock off NECA before, and I think as long as you get in there early you get good quality. The longer (years) you leave it, the quality gets more and more "Chinese".

Some on this site would even argue that the KO's are as good as the real deal - in the fact that they are from the same factory using the same materials etc!

Anyway I will be dipping into these!

Think those are actually cheaper than NECA was selling them for, no? Usagi is at least.

I've got my preorder in though so I'll be patient.
