NECA gave a number of updates today on their Twitter account on upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles products. Of note they stated the upcoming Walmart exclusive 90's TMNT Movie Turtle 2-packs will not be available on the Walmart website. You will have to go into the physical stores to try and find them. Some have noted that actor Elias Koteas who played Casey Jones in the 90's movies has publicly stated on Twitter that he is now open to having his likeness featured on an action figure. Randy Falk has previously stated that they actually sculpted an unmasked headsculpt for the Casey Jones movie figure featured in the current two pack, but could not use it due to likeness rights. NECA today acknowledged that they were aware of Koteas change of heart about the use of his likeness, but a deal between the two parties had yet to be struck. They are hopeful it will happen and that we could see a unmasked figure released at some point. Doesn't look like there will be any NYCC exclusives offered this year, especially if the convention is canceled. For the wave 3 Target Exclusive 2-packs.

The 2020 TMNT SDCC Exclusive set announced earlier today will only be made available here in the US on the Target website and physical stores. NECA's other SDCC exclusives for this year will be sold at Walmart stores and on the NECA website. They plan to release links to the Target website for the TMNT SDCC exclusive set the day they go on sale. The Raph/Casey 2-packs are still shipping to Walmart stores and they haven't even released half of their inventory yet. Some of the other TMNT Walmart 2-packs MAY have their online orders handled by NECA directly. They are working on hammering out those details and things have yet to be determined. NECA also gave a cryptic answer about how the Tokka & Rahza 2-Pack might be released. An announcement for the release of their Toon based diorama seen at Toy Fair is expected to be made during their online SDCC reveals. NECA stated we could possibly see more Mirage based TMNT figures in the future.
