Thanks man! And I totally get it. It’s really hard to justify a $40 accessory for a $25 toy. You could save $10 and paint it yourself. Still a lot of money, but I can’t make it any cheaper than that.

For folks in the US, it’s only ~$2.97 to ship, which is much more reasonable. And Rocksteady looks so much better with the helmet!

I designed this in 3D, and I am making more for anyone who wants them. I'll ship internationally too, I've got your back LeoRaDoMic.

I am offering it on Etsy for $25 + shipping - painted, or $15 + shipping - unpainted. That way anyone can afford one.

Nice, not sure if I would want to paint it myself or not. I'll have to see what I have for paint before I make that decision.

Exactly, Paying more for a helmet than the figure. Is isn't right. Still Neca should have included this imo. Getting tired of this. I don't even gonna negotiate anymore for a stupid piece of plastic.

Like always you guys in the USA have everything, it isn't fair...

You guys probably have access to more affordable health care...

this sense of entitlement is a bad look on you, man.

you can't compare value evenly between a single hand-made accessory and toys that are mass produced in factories. and are you calling his work a stupid piece of plastic? if you don't want it for that price, don't buy it and move on.

and if you want cool **** in the netherlands, have some dutch folk invent the next great franchise and have them produce their own merchandise for it too.

Nobody asked you to become a collector of foreign properties, man. That's how it is. I love a bunch of Japanese series' & its a bitch to get merch, but I get it. Sure, TMNT is more world renowned than most things, but still.

You guys are missing the point. But I'm not going in discussion for the sake of this thread.

If you've got access to a 3d printer you could probably source the 3d model or create one yourself and have Shapeways print it. It's not an overly complicated shape, I'm sure with a little perseverance you could work something out that you'd be pleased with. Start with a sphere, a cube, and a couple cones and go from there. If I can ever find this figure I'll probably go that route myself.

Iím guessing NECA didnít include Rocksteadyís helmet because he only uses it on season 1 first 5 epsiodes, along with with the camo pants and more bullets on the belt. Season 2 and on Rocksteady looks a bit different (no helmet, plain khaki pants, less bullets) which is how the NECA figure looks. Bebop only his ponytail color changed after season 1.

I'd like to see Bebop and Rocksteady re-released as pirates in the Turtles in Time figure line.

Ah, I called it didn't I?! It was better to have them together in the first place!

So different figures we have Michelangelo, Raphael, Leonardo, Donatello, April, Casey Jones, Shredder, Krang, Bebop, Rocksteady, Leatherhead, Slash, Metalhead, and Alpha-1?

We need a Rat King!

-facepalms- that entire wave 3 is a must-have wave. God I remember the manhunt that was on for the original Slash figure when I was a kid. It was THE toy at the time. It was such a big deal for a character that had little presence on the show.

That NECA Slash is the toy you always wanted for that character.... Actually all of the NECA toys in this line are that. -shrugs-
