"BENTONVILLE, Ark., & HILLSIDE, N.Y. Oct. 3, 2022 — Walmart and NECA (National Entertainment Collectibles Association) are proud to announce AutoT, the first of its kind revolutionary digital collectible platform featuring limited-edition figures and collectibles. Launching exclusively this month both on Walmart.com and in stores, AutoT collectibles will break new ground in the digital collector space by offering exclusive figures and collectibles featuring rare chase variants signed by stars and creators.

Each series in the AutoT line is based on a specific pop culture property. Once a customer purchases an AutoT box, they enter the digital code found on their Walmart receipt into their personal account at AutoTVault.com to reveal which collectible item they’ve received.

“At Walmart, we are always finding new ways to bring innovation and one-of-a-kind offerings to our customers,” said Laura Rush, SVP, Electronics, Toys & Seasonal – Walmart U.S. “NECA’s unique collectibles and inventive AutoT platform offer a new type of shopping experience to shoppers, ensuring that Walmart is bringing the best in tech and entertainment to customers nationwide.”

The AutoT website uses patent pending blockchain technology to track the authenticity and ownership history of AutoT collectibles so fans can easily buy, sell and trade on the platform with confidence. Collectors can store their digital collectible for up to two years free of charge in the NECA Vault or have the physical item shipped to them.

“NECA is the world leader in pop culture figures and collectibles,” said Joel Weinshanker, managing partner of NECA. “Partnering with Walmart, we are excited to bring exclusive NECA merchandise featuring today’s hottest IPs into the digital world.”

AutoT launches with new to market figures from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, featuring Shredder, Renet and Foot Soldier. Fans will also have a chance to receive rare chase variants signed by co-creator Kevin Eastman. Also debuting are exclusive Bob Ross collectible lithographs from Bob Ross Inc. with more properties and collectibles to be announced in the coming weeks.

You know what's awesome? When NECA offers their TMNT figures for sale on their website directly, and people can just buy it, and not worry about scalpers and time limits.

Good times.

To me this represents a company that heard NFTs were the future and heard the “millions” they could make of of sales between scalpers and collectors. CEO told employees to come up with something. But then the NFT market crashed and instead of shelving their plans went ahead anyway well after the crash no matter the backlash.

People ringing up the same Auto-T barcode opposed to the stupid "exclusive card" is good enough for NECA. Stupid zippos don't want to make "too many" units or "the Ebay scalpers will get upset and start devaluing their toys"... as if that could possibly be true!! They make @##@@ amazing toys for ADULTS. I just don't understand it. 

What makes sense to me is their products; being geared for kids with jobs and licenses to buy beer, Neca should ALWAYS have Pre-order buttons on their website that function as long as people are willing to click the @##@@ thing and PAY. They could relist EVERY past item, Casey & Foot 2 Pack, April Foot 2 Pack, SOTO 4 Pack, etc! Is that not enough ASSURED millions for you, you pitifully dumb ass people?
