I'm definitely way more invested in TMNT collecting than I've been in many years, that's for sure. The movie figures are the first TMNT toys I've bought in ages, but I'm glad to see so much other great stuff on the way. Like I'm not a huge fan of the FW cartoon, but seeing such "perfect"-looking toys based on it is too good for me to pass up.

Now I have to go back and pick up the Mirage figures and the Bandai/FiguArts FW TMNT as well. My wallet's aching, but you only go around once. I have to hand it to NECA, though, for reigniting my interest in TMNT collecting. Before the movie figures, the last TMNT toy I bought was... actually, I think it was a Mikey from the 2007 CGI movie, when those were brand new. None of the Playmates stuff since then ever thrilled me enough to make me spend any money. But NECA's finally giving me the toys I've always wanted since I was a kid, in a variety of styles; hard to say no to that!

Nope, my Target doesn't have them yet.

They do get NECA stuff, but the TMNT toys in general do really poorly in this area, I've noticed. They've continued to whittle their "Rise..." toy stock down to almost nothing, so I hope that the general disinterest in TMNT product over here doesn't discourage them from carrying these two-packs.

I think there was some pictures circulating that they've been spotted in NJ

This makes me both happy and sad. Because there's only one in my general radius, and I go by it every day, so it would be great it they did get them, but so far they haven't. And they just filled up their NECA shelf yesterday or today with a bunch more Freddy and Jason movie figures, so it definitely doesn't LOOK like they plan on making room for anything new in the near future.

I'm always generally either on my way to or from work, so I don't really get a chance to go around searching stores for stuff anymore. I'm glad other Target stores have 'em, but I'm going to be greatly annoyed if this one doesn't. Because it would be directly related to the poor performance of the movie and "Rise" toys; essentially, "We couldn't sell our crappy TMNT toys, so we're not going to bother making room for the good ones that people might actually buy."

I mean, I don't know. Maybe the NECA stuff wouldn't sell either; it's 99% people from India in that area, perhaps that group of people simply don't care about TMNT in general. But it seems like that's the theory this one Target manager is running with, unfortunately.

Worst case, I could always send my wife on a "fetch quest" while I'm at work, but she f*ckin' haaaaaaates that. So I might have to suffer the epic shipping prices of eBay for these. Super annoying. Hopefully they show up over here. So far, I'm not happy, but I'll give it another week before I upgrade to "Pissed".

Just throwing this out there but would anyone want to trade? GameStop exclusives are readily available where I live but the target exclusives not so much.

I called yesterday and the manager told me he could see the four products at $51.99 when he searched for NECA but that there was no name or product number. Randy specifically said in his interview with Pixel Dan that these wouldn't ship until the last week of February or as late as the first week of March in some places. The fact that you guys are discouraged that these are only starting to trickle in only two weeks after even being announced is perplexing to me.

I don’t know about everyone else but the nearest target from me is about 60+ miles away. As annoying as it is these aren’t the easiest to get a hold of. Nearest GameStop in comparison is only a twenty five minute drive.

How many of these are released by now? I'd be looking to own all of the turtles with their "companions" in MOC and later on the packs with Rocksteady and Bebop when they are released.

I went out looking today and none of my Targets have them.
But if anyone needs help finding them just ask and I'll be more than happy to take business away from scalpers.

I'm going hunting on Monday. Only one Target nearby in the next town over. Knowing my area though, it may be a while before anything hits here.
