  9. If you did like the color of the first Kenner based Rhino Alien figure NECA did, they are giving you another chance at the figure with a different paint scheme. Look for it to be released later this year.
  10. There is no denying that the hobby of action figure collecting is facing a bit of a crisis with scalping these days. More and more, collectors find it difficult to get their hands on the products toy manufacturers are producing at reasonable prices. First, let’s clearly define what a scalper is in the context of this problem. A scalper is someone (or someones) who buy all or most the product they can find at regular retail with the intent of reselling it at a marked up price for profit. The mark up is generally double the original price, although items perceived as high demand sometimes can be marked up even more. eBay is the most common place the scalpers go to resell their stuff. Scalpers have always been around and frankly always will be around as long as perceived demand for an item exceeds supply. However, as toy manufacturers turn more and more to store exclusives and technologies like online bots that allow scalpers to clean out website stock in seconds improve, the scalper problem is only getting worse. So what can be done about it? Seeing toy manufacturers quit giving stores so many exclusives would be nice, but such an expectation in today’s limited retail landscape is seemingly neither practical or realistic. Toy Manufacturers increasingly are beholden to their largest customers, which are the Target’s and Walmart’s of the world, especially when talking about the larger companies like Hasbro. Expecting them to turn their backs on the big box retailers is like expecting someone who has been wandering the desert for days to turn away a canteen filled with water. It would be suicide for them to do it. Seeing the big box retailers implement counter-technology on their websites to prevent the scalper bots from cleaning out inventory or putting in place policies that limit purchase quantities to one or two would be cool, but also is unlikely. First, implementing new website countermeasures means the retailer has to spend money to update the websites. Second, it’s really not in their best interest if something like an exclusive is easy to find. To understand why I say that, you first have to really understand why these stores want the exclusives in the first place. The primary reason for making highly sought items an exclusive is to pull you through their doors. They really don’t care if you find said exclusive. In fact, it’s counter-productive if you find the exclusive on your first trip. If you have to keep coming back to the store multiple times, so much the better. The idea is browsing - once you are in the store, you will buy something. Also, a sale is a sale, whether the buyer is a scalper or a collector. The whole psychological impact of the perception that something is rare and valuable is another bonus for them. In my view, collecting (really anything) taps into the addictive impulses of wanting something others don’t have. The harder-to-get something is perceived the more people want it, hence the increased demand for an item that might not otherwise be there. It’s not really logical, but it is human nature. Now I can’t sit here and tell you retailers are deliberately keeping inventory low on these exclusives so you can’t find them, but you certainly can see the benefit to them if something is harder to find, causing you time and again to come to them for what you seek. So if we can’t really count on the toy manufacturers or the big box retailers to fix the problem, where do we collectors go from here? Well, the answer is simple and difficult all at the same time. As I mentioned before, perceived demand of limited supply will always create profiteers. So the goal is simple. Don’t let them profit. If collectors quit buying toys from scalpers, the scalper will be left with unsold inventory. Like with any retail business, if your inventory doesn’t move then you go out of business. A scalper is only going to scalp something if they think they have a fair chance of reselling that item at a marked up price. If they are not able to sell an item for more than what they paid, they will move on. In fact, if they have to sit on lots of unsold inventory for any significant period of time, eventually they will be forced to discount the stuff just to clear it out. Now the tricky part is getting people to quit buying from scalpers. It sound easy, but it’s not really. No matter how many times you hear people say “don’t feed the scalpers”, there are always those who seem to do just that. Of course, there is no way to force people not to buy from scalpers. So once again, how do we go about fixing the problem? Honestly, I don’t think a silver bullet solution exists, and we will likely never completely fix the problem. But here are a few easy recommendations that may help reduce the problem. 1. First and foremost, remember these are just action figures. If you don’t get it, the world isn’t going to end. Yes, collecting can be an addiction, but don’t let it rule your life. Be willing to walk away if you need to. 2. Remember, you really do have the ultimate power with your wallet. You can’t stop a determined scalper from buying stuff, but if they can’t sell it at a profit they will have no choice but to stop buying it. It’s all about supply and demand, and while we have little control over the supply side of the equation, we do have significant control on the demand side. 3. As collectors we all are in this together - and as with anything, the more united we are, the stronger we are. Don’t let your frustration turn to anger. Look to each other for help in finding stuff. Create networks where you can share information like area reports or even obtain toys for one another at cost. If we make the hobby less about the physical items themselves and more about the relationships and friendships that can be built while collecting these things, it will bring the fun back even if you end up missing out on a figure here or there.
  11. A number of folks have written in about finding at Target stores what seems to be a most unannounced 8" Cloth Retro Bill And Ted's Excellent Adventure Ted "Theodore" Logan figure from NECA. The figure itself appears to be a re-release of the figure that came in the previously released Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure Two-Pack. The weird things for this set however is the price Target stores have been reportedly charging for the figure which is $60. That's as much as the original 2-pack cost that had both Bill and Ted. Well indications are that Target has made an error in their price and that is should only cost around $30. Now if you happen to come across the figure in the wild and its still showing a $60 price tag, good luck on convincing someone to change the price for you, but I would recommend you hold off on buying it until they do. If for some reason you already bought one for $60, then I'd probably go back to the store and ask for a refund of the difference in price. Thanks to folks who sent in word on this one.
  12. Being offered exclusively through Shout Factory is a new NECA 8" cloth retro figure based on the character Frank Armit who was played by Keith David in the John Carpenter They Live movie. The figure will come with two weapon accessories. You can buy the figure through a couple different bundle options with the movie or just the figure itself for $39.99.
  13. NECA today announce a new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (1990 Movie) 7" Scale Accessory Set which will go up for pre-order this Friday (9/4) on thenecastore.com. This will be one of two TMNT items going up for pre-order on Friday, with the second item set to be revealed tomorrow. This is the largest accessory pack NECA has ever released, filled to the shells with new items that encompass the entirety of the classic 1990 film. Finally, you can give your turtles new expressions with 4 unique head sculpts for Mikey, Donnie, Leo, and Raph with all new straight headband ties. Also included in this massive set is a television with everyone's favorite reporter on screen, an officially licensed bottle of turtle wax, Shredder's damaged helmet, a skateboard, Donnie's straw hat, a street sign, manhole cover, stuffed panda, and newspaper. Some familiar accessories from the 1/4 line will also be making return in 7" scale, including Mikey's spinning nunchuck accessory, bags of corn chips and pork rinds, and the baby turtles! The set is said to cost around $50.
  14. Based on a new overseas pre-order listing it looks like NECA will be re-releasing their Terminator 2 Ultimate Sarah Connor figure that was originally released back in 2016 along with their Ultimate John Connor figure that was originally released as a 2019 San Diego Comic Con exclusive. Sarah will include the same stuff as the previous release including three interchangeable heads, shotgun, pistol, rifle,knife and removable vest. John looses the second headsculpt and dirt bike that were included with the SDCC release but you still get the T-800 arm, hacking device and backpack. In Europe it looks like the set will be released in October. Still know word from NECA on when or how the set will be released here in the US. Once NECA announces more details we will be sure to update this story.
