  1. I don't think NECA bought Loot Crate. They are owned by the same person, but are two separate companies.
  2. Yeah, NECA made the figures and Loot Crate confirmed in January that everything for crate 2 & 3 were in stock and will be shipping out in early to mid February. Turned out that was a lie. From NECA's perspective, LC ordered the figures and NECA fulfilled. What they do with them after that is on LC.
  3. One more thing, Loot Crate is in a lose-lose situation, which is why I think they will never fulfill these orders. Even if they ship all crates tomorrow, what is the likelihood that their customers will return to them? They could put out gold-plated TMNT figures in the next series and I will still never buy from them again. I'm sure a lot of their customers feel the same, so they'll be out of business in no time. So the only other option is to cut their losses and screw their customers. At least that way they don't spend tens of thousands in shipping costs.
  4. Agreed. There is a connection between LC and NECA, whether or not they want to admit it. If LC goes under, I'm out $150, but I have multiple preorders for NECA that are worth much more. I don't expect NECA to go under anytime soon, but if the owner of LC can screw his customers in that way what's to say his other company won't do the same if they fall on hard times? So I've made a decision that it LC takes my money and runs I will no longer be preordering things from NECA either (because his other company could do the same at any time). So I'd take my chances at what NECA products I can buy directly from Target, WM, BBTS or EE. If I don't get something, I don't get it. It's better than having hundreds or thousands stolen from me.
  5. Thank you for the update. I've reached out (kindly) several times asking for an update with no response. After that, I found an email for one of their customer managers and emailed (again, kindly) asking for an update or refund. No response on those messages either. I even called their main number given by the BBB, but it goes straight to VM that says they won't be answering inquiries over the phone. Now that they haven't updated their social media in over a month, I'm betting it's a lost cause.
  6. Excellent job! We really need a vintage Street Sharks line. This makes me want one.
  7. This week was much easier. Snagged Bebop and Rocksteady without any trouble.
  8. I really hope they do shipwreck with 2 generic sailor alternate heads so we can build sailors from the mold, too. He and quick kick were two of my favorite figures as a kid..
  9. Doc is the only surprise for me (and a good one). I expected we would receive Scarlett and another Cobra army builder. Looks like a solid line.
  10. Excellent job. Love the classic robe.
  11. Anyone else feeling they're going to go broke with the New TMNT hauls? Neca preorders every two weeks, Super 7 preorders, Haulathon, New Playmates stuff, etc ... I'm turtle rich but money poor.
  12. I really hope these figures don't sell out in 5 minutes. According to their promos, they were supposed to go live 90 minutes ago. Meanwhile if you are an international customer, you have no trouble buying what you want right now. This is why I hate Target and Wal-Mart special events. And we have 4 weeks of this crap. NECA, please go back to the preorders. It's less stressful and much more enjoyable.
  13. Agree. Super 7's figures are more pieces of art that pay homage to the source material. GI Joe Classified has less detail but more articulation.
  14. Agreed. I'm tired of paying scalpers prices. I'll take my shot on Friday and if I get something, great, and if not I'll wait for NECA to reissue down the line.
  15. It doesn't surprise me that S7 is going so deep into the robot figures. Bryan loves robots and his company started by making Japanese robots. He's said many times that he and team will be making figures they are excited about. Knowing that, we'll probably get robot Rocksteady in the next wave followed by Chrome Dome, Fugatiod and Krang's body at some point. I don't care how much Krang is, that will be an instant preorder. Especially if they do him in retro packaging.
  16. Very true. One of my recent orders came in almost 6 months early. Not complaining!
  17. Lol! Truth. Love everything that is coming out, but the wallet will only take so much torture. Thank goodness for companies like BBTS and EE that let you preorder without paying in advance.
  18. Good summary of what I am thinking. I used to be a completionist in so many lines, but it is so expense and there is only enough space in my home office. plus I was buying too many things I wasn't excited about. The item for me for S7 TMNT was the Party Wagon. I love the look and accessories, but at $450 I couldn't do it. It's not so bad. I have my original Party Wagon signed and drawn on by Kevin Eastman. It sits next to my Ultimates figures and is so cool. I decided to get Guerrilla Gorilla, even though he is $75 and is not a character I'm familiar with. Sgt. Bananas was one of my faves as a kid, and this looks like the closest I'll get to a high quality version.
