  1. This is almost man baby level whining. Why would it be predatory to offer two different versions of a figure? You don’t need both to complete a baf, so pick the one you like. As far as limited articulation, did you get the shriek figure? The articulation is amazing and versatile, and looks much more natural than anything in the same price range. Hasbro has people thinking that marvel legends ab crunch is good articulation. It’s not. It looks ridiculous. People bash McFarlane for petty reasons but they let hasbro and other larger companies get away with releasing figures with no paint and no new sculpting. Every new McFarlane figure I’ve bought is different from the last. I never know exactly what to expect. If he just used the bucky cap mold 1000 times would that make you guys happy?
  2. This show was always better than tmnt. At least when I was a kid it seemed like it was. Had a cinematic feel to it.
  3. I love that neca makes stuff like this just to have a presence in the stores as they know it will sit for months on end. Who goes to the store gets all their toiletries and random things for the house and then says “ ya know what? I’d like to spend $120 on below average golden girls action figures right now.”?
  4. It’s called scarcity, and in this case it’s done on purpose to ramp up hype and the perception of exclusivity. Jordan brand has been doing this for 20 years and it hasn’t gotten better. There’s still violence over shoes. I don’t care what anyone says on a forum, its definitely on purpose and it’s definitely good for long term business even if it dents short term profits. Remember the last Jedi? They never want to see that happen again, with $20.00 products gathering dust at $9.99. it’s bad for the brands image. They’d rather deal with angry nerds. but they’re also smart enough to restock when demand drops, as to make sure the value dies as soon as the hype dies. People only care about this junk for a month and then it’s on to the next thing.
  5. I would never go to a big box store to look for neca products. I do check for them when I’m there, And I’ve only seen something remotely sought after once or twice. Usually it’s all horror stuff. What a waste of time and fuel that would be to go from store to store. I would just bargain and make a deal fleabay to get them delivered if I collected tmnt stuff. Especially with covid out there it’s just not worth it. Good luck tho, hope you get some good finds at least
  6. From my understanding the first one was based on the 1930s version too. More relevant than tmnt...think of it this way, will more adults watch the new King Kong movie or would they rather see a new tmnt movie? Anyway, it sold pretty well and this is just a variant based on the poster. This specific paint job is for a niche group of fans, but it’s not a whole line, just one figure. I’m sure it will sell enough to justify the production, they sculpted a King Kong body and really can’t do much with it other than this type of variant.
  7. Side note: I never lifted the cape to look at Batman’s butt. Never felt the need to, but I guess to each his/her own.
  8. The complaining is hilarious. I for one was happy with this figure, a unique Batman designed by Todd himself is something I never thought I’d see. All of the new sculpting and paintwork isn’t enough, we have to complain about knives sculpted into the figure and goggles, etc? With marvel legends we get the same barely painted bucky cap every wave and with neca they’ve been milking gen Xers for years with barely articulated turtles and terminator figures that aren’t even culturally relevant. Funny that with all of this complaining the figures somehow disappear off of the shelf and end up on eBay for $50.00. Makes me suspicious of this post, as the card and stand aren’t removed from the packaging...anyway, hope all who are looking for this end up finding it for retail.
  9. I see this all the time and it’s just as ridiculous as the scalpers who run in the store at 8 am to try and buy all the stock. I go to target when I need something for the house. Why? Because any rational person knows that there’s a 95% chance that they don’t have any of the neca or hasbro stuff that I Would buy. I do look for it if I happen to be in the store, but I’m not wasting my time. You’re using up all that energy and gas to drive to different target or wal mart stores, and you end up spending just as much as you would with a scalper. More often than not, if I wait a few weeks for anything, I’ll find it at retail or below online. Patience is key. Everyone has to have everything NOW and that’s what feeds scalpers. None of this plastic crap makes anyone happy, and I’m not chasing anything that doesn’t make me happy. Just some perspective.
