Neca Figures and future?

NECA Figures (Issues finding some and what will be out in the future?

I cannot find the NECA FIGURES Ultimate Foot Solder, Kerma w Mondo Gecko.

When will the Ultimate Pizza creature and the other 2 punk frogs be out?

Why does Target have empty shelves of these figures and I could never find the 4 pack of the Turtles in disguise

NECA announced the 4 pack of the Channel 6 crew, Wingnut w Screwloose (I knew those would be soon) and Groundchuck w Dirtbag (I wondered when they'd be). When do those come out

Also of both Playmates Tokka & Rahzar back in 1991 and the current Neca Tokka and Razhar figures, why have they been ones that have been hard to find within these 30 yrs?



Also of the NECA Figures (They list ones to be out for at least the year https://turtlepedia.fandom.com/wiki/...action_figures)

What do you project will be out within the next 2 years?

Will they make Walt with Zack Rhino Man Bebop and Rocksteady, the Nutrenos, Rock Soldiers, Yusagi Yujimbo (His name is hard to spell), Lotus Blossom, or Tempestra (if they do then they will have made all the villians in Night of the Rouges). What of that Mutant Plant in 1 of the Eye of Sarnoth Episodes. Or what of REX-1?
They never made or a head for Baxter of him as a human!!!
Will they even Make Cheeseburger Man? (From the Rhino Man episode) or any of the 1 off mad scientists? or Big Louie and the other crime bosses that appeared in more than 1 ep like Mad Dog McNutt, Pinky McFingers, Don Turtelli (with a feather)
Will they make Lord Dregg, Mung, Hi-Tech, Technobots, Carter (Is it me or was he a homage to Keno), April in her Red Sky era Attire, Berskero, Tantitus and Cyber Turtles (that was a homeage to Power Rangers I felt).


Will they make a Technodrome? Will they make a set of the mad scientists?
What do any of you predict?


of Movies, will they make Tatsu (Why they never had merchandise of him?), Keno, Chief Sterns, and Professor Jordan Perry? I doubt they'd make the Third movie figures as that movie didn't go over well with us fans and was one sequel too many.

These NECA Figures ARE VERY WELL MADE. Too bad when Toys r us closed that took out a source of where to find them.


What do you predict will be made 2022 and beyond?

The problem is that the line keeps moving forward and never providing a remedy for missed material. So basically every wave that sneaks out there and gets missed at retail means that many more possibly permanent gaps.

I just picked up Trouble's Afoot(Alpha One) yesterday. He a half dozen in so it must have just hit the shelves locally.

Channel Six News 4 pack? Why bother pairing Vernon with Rat King then? I don't want nor need a second of him.

Yes, I inquired about Mondo Gecko/Kerma and Napoleon Bonafroga/Atilla The Mad Frog as well. When are these two pairs supposedly hitting shelves?

It's even worse than that - people missed out on, or were otherwise very disappointed by April like crazy. So NECA re-releases April but we didn't see any regular April heads in the pictures, no? Yet they release another, fairly regular concept Vernon.



F'n NECA. Between what I have found at retail and the NECA pre-orders, my collection is complete swiss cheeze at this point.

Where did you find Troubles a Foot? ??? Will I find it at Target or will they not be there???

Also will they make a Human Baxter Stockman with that Napoleon Wannabee from the Asylum?

I think the next frog set is due August but I've seen a few people say they've found them now so I guess they're starting to trickle out.

According to their email updates Ultimate Pizza Monster is "Fall 2021"

All of the new reveals are due August to October this year. The Channel Six pack will likely ship end July/early August.

Can't comment on Playmates but the NECA movie versions were made to order last year so they were never released in stores. If you were collecting the line at the time they were easier to get than most of the in store stuff but for new fans jumping on the line now they're much harder to come by.

NECA teased animated Tokka & Razhar for next year, and a 3-Pack most are assuming will be the Neutrinos.

Usagi Yojimbo is a fan favourite but the rights aren't available at the moment as a series is being developed (I think by Netflix?) so the merchandise rights are tied up there.

Beyond that who knows. Random one offs like Cheeseburger Man I can't see happening but Tempestra, Lotus Blossom, human Baxter, yeah they all seem possible.

Red Sky seasons don't have the same level of nostalgia grab but if the line stays successful then it gives them a good opportunity to revisit some of the main characters and do some new major villains rather than one offs. So, maybe? It's hard to say as Dregg is (in the series) a bigger villain than Rat King, Leatherhead, etc but those characters are far more iconic for TMNT fans and were in the earlier episodes that far more people watched/remember.

They've already hinted at the van and sewer lair. So if they do those and they sell well then I guess we could see the Technodrome happen. Likely not in the near future though as those other big items are likely to come first.

Tatsu is an issue with likeness rights. The actor who played him doesn't want to give his likeness for the figure so they can't make him.

Keno was pretty much confirmed to be coming by the actor who played him I believe.

Third movie I can't see them going deep but I'm sure they'll do the Samurai Turtles. They were able to sell the Out of Their Shells figures, Samurai Turtles or even TNM Turtles should be easy sell compared with that!

But Tatsu is a main character!!! No figure was ever made of him and I wondered that even 30 yrs ago.

Also what do you guess will be released in 2022?

I wish it wasn't I go to to look for these at Target and they are not there at all.

So sad of what is said of Tatsu, he was a main character
I hope we see those released . Why not make a Loot Crate Cheeseburger Man?

Cheeseburger Man, Rhino-Man (very surprised that Playmates actually made this appearance of Rocksteady) and Super-Bebop (??? Is that what they called him) would make a great set as long as they don't take the place of "the 3-pack" (Neutrinos, obviously) that NECA alluded to. Ideal releases for Loot Crate or other limited promotional collaborations.

Tatsu will likely be made at some point but NECA will need to find the elusive actor. It should be easier to pinpoint his whereabouts after the pandemic. Maybe he will be a 2023 or 2024 release
