Thanks for contacting Playmates Toys.

We do have it as an idea for some time in 2025 (at the moment), and it will likely be an exclusive to one specific retailer that is not yet determined. Not many decisions have been made on it yet, so I cannot confirm much info right now.

Thanks again for reaching out!

The whole “exclusive” thing is complete bs! Cause it kinda screws the customers who might not have access to said store, or when said store might only have it exclusive in one country

if this does actually start shipping immediately it'll be a bit surprising since there have been no previews of this anywhere, or even leaks

I think I’m gonna wait and see since that link has very little info and no pictures. And playmates said 2025 possibly.

All seems odd to me.

It's Amazon, I can't think of a safer place to preorder.

Which I did, last night. I can't believe it wasn't delivered today!

I should mention that after I sent them that first email, I sent another asking if we should ignore that Amazon Listing since according to who I talked to said how it was pretty much just a idea and nothing concrete until possibly 2025….so why we should continue to check that link if nothing is official yet so like they could remove the listing or something…..

Their response was pretty much not to ignore the listing completely so honestly who knows but Playmates what’s really going on but I got in a Pre-Order earlier this morning.

Go straight to the official Playmates site and email them to explain your grievance. That listing could be fake and scammers could have collected your money.

it's not fake and no scammers have gotten anyone's money it's shipped and sold by Amazon.com so it's Amazon themselves they won't charge till the item ships

Thank you for the update! Upon going to the listing, it gives you the chance of putting the item in your cart but you can't finish the transaction.

Whole bunch of little changes to this thing- looks like the base is brand new, windows moved, nothing major.

Seeing some people say that it is 3 inches smaller over all.

Always thought it was sort of cool/interesting how the Technodrome was meant to be attached, literally via a tunnel, to the Sewer Playset.

Playmates has to re-release the Retromutagen Ooze next. The back of box says that ooze is not included.

It shows 13.5" tall. I just measured my OG, it's a smidge over 15". Wonder where the missing 1.5" went, and why?

I'm getting tempted to buying it and keeping it in a closed configuration as a backdrop for my BST AXN figures.

Bro! If they re-release the og retromutagen ooze, I'm gonna crap myself! I need that original scent in my life again. The smell ingredient is the only thing I'm missing from the ooze I create with the materials from the vintage recipe list! I use the traditional guar gum from flinn scientific and all of the other traditional ingredients used in the vintage toy line. But! No freshly cut grass smell like the 80s version has!

That looks neat, but... not $80 neat. I probably might have snagged it at half that price or cheaper to go along with some 2.5 inch TMNT figurines I own, but I can't justify getting this at $80. Good luck to all who want it being able to get it, though. Maybe I'm not the target demographic here, though.
