NECA announced today that they are looking to offer some of their 90's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie 2-packs on their own NECA store website for both US and International customers this Thursday (7/16). Previously they had said these would only be available at physical Walmart stores. Also the first TMNT wave 3 Animated 2-pack to be released at Target stores will be the one with the Casey Jones & Foot Soldier figures. The official release date for both online and physical stores is this Friday (7/17), but we are seeing reports of folks already starting to find them in stores. The release dates for the other 2-packs in wave 3 are 8/6 and 8/20. We don't yet know which set will be released on which date. Here is the place holder link for the Casey and Foot Soldier set: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles - 7" Scale Action Figure - Cartoon Series 3 Casey Jones & Foot Soldier. The deluxe animated series Metalhead figure is also slated to hit shelves and online this Friday at Target. We do not have a placeholder link for that one to share at this time.
NECA has announced that they will be taking pre-order's for the Target exclusive Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Deluxe Metalhead figure on their own website for both US and International folks starting on 8/14 at 12pm ET. The pre-order will last until Friday 8/21 at 11am ET. This will be done as a made to order type deal which means you won't have to worry about it selling out in seconds. They will be limited to two per household and will ship out to folks in November. You have to pay up front when you pre-order. The figure I guess is still technically considered a Target exclusive so you might still find them on shelves there, but this will be a much easier way to get the figure for those who don't have Target's nearby or stock NECA stuff very well. We assume the figure will still cost $30 as it does at Target stores, however you will have to pay shipping which seems to average for those in the US around $12-$22 depending on where you live. That is what shipping was running for the Movie Deluxe Super Shredder that sold on their site earlier this week. The TMNT Movie Replica Casey Jones Mask will also be available for pre-order at the same time.
Randy Falk from NECA Toys recently said in an interview that he thought we would see the release of 40 different figures by the end of the year for their Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Animated series line. Because of that, we thought it would be fun to compile a list of all the figures we know about, and see how close we are to that 40 number. We are going to assume Randy wasn't including the original SDCC exclusive figures that were later released in the Target waves, or the re-issue of the Shredder and Krang figures that were originally offered in wave 1, and then released in a new 2-pack. We will count all the figures in wave 2, even though all but two were repaints of figures from wave 1. Based on what we know, we don't quit get to 40 yet, but we assume NECA has a few more unknown surprises in store for us between now and the end of the year. So lets start off with the figures that have already been released in the first two Target store exclusive waves. Wave 1: Michelangelo & FOOT Soldier, Donatello & Krang, Leonardo & Shredder, Raphael & Foot Soldier Wave 2: Bebop & Rocksteady, Raphel & Michelangelo, Leonardo & Donatello, FOOT Solider 1 & FOOT Soldier 2 That bring the total up to 16 figures. Now lets look at the figures we know are coming for waves 3 and 4. Wave 3 is slated for release in late June and wave 4 will be out shortly after that. Wave 3: April O'Neil & Bashed FOOT Soldier, Casey Jones & Slashed FOOT Soldier, Leatherhead and Slash Wave 4: Splinter & Baxter Stockman, Granitor & Traag, Roadkill Rodney & Triceraton-Soldier That bring our total up to 28 figures. Now Wave 5 which Randy said would be out by the end of the year has yet to be revealed, but they did show off at Toy Fair Triceraton Captain Zorax and Zork, so we are going to assume those will make up at least two figures in that wave. That bring us to 30 figures. Now besides the regular 2-packs coming to Target, NECA has announced the release of 3 different Deluxe figures for this year that will around cost $30 each. Deluxe Metalhead Deluxe FOOT Soldier with multiple heads, hands and accessories Deluxe Krang with Android Body That brings the total figures being released to 33. Now the Deluxe Krang is also coming with a mini Baby Shredder figure which we are not counting as a separate figure, though I guess technically it could considered as such. We also know that NECA is releasing figures of Rocksteady and Bebop in bunny costumes through Lootcrate. No images of those have been released at this time. So that brings the total up to 35 figures. We can assume wave 5 will at least have 4 more figures in it, which would bring the total to 39. NECA also recently teased a big priced item was coming to Target around the holidays that would cost in the neighborhood of $100, so that may include the 40th figure. Check out more images below for all the figures shown here, and we will update you as more stuff is revealed in the coming days.
