  1. NECA has released new images for their upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Secret Of The Ooze Deluxe Super Shredder figure as well as online purchase details. In the US the figure is being released as a Walmart exclusive, however for online purchases you will be able to buy it through the NECA Store website. Starting on August 10th at 1pm EST, a limited quantity of this figure will be made available to the US and International customers in 20+ countries. All orders will be limited to 1 per person. While the exact quantities of this figure being released have not been made public, NECA insists that the quantities have been significantly increased from previous TMNT Movie offerings from Walmart. The figure will also be sold in physical Walmart stores around the same time, though we don't yet have an exact date for when they might start showing up there. Walmart# 579002900, SKU# 269034699, UPC# 634482541289. The figure at Walmart should cost $30, however it is unknown if the price through the NECA store will be the same or if it will be raised some. With some of NECA's other recent Walmart offerings, we've seen the online price be a bit higher than the in-store one. In other related NECA TMNT news, NECA has recently indicated on their social media that if all goes well, folks will have an opportunity to pre-order the Target Exclusive TMNT Animated Series Deluxe Metalhead figure when it gets restocked soon. While this doesn't seemingly appear to be something completely set in stone yet, it does appear NECA is continuing to at least try and make some of this stuff easier to get. It's unknown at this time if NECA plans to take these pre-order on their own website or if this will be offered through the Target website. Hopefully it will be something offered through NECA's website as its a little more prepared against Scalper Bots than Target's own website is. As more details on this become available, we will be sure to pass them on to you.
  2. 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.
  3. For the many still trying to get their hands on the first wave of Masters of the Universe Origins stuff from Mattel which is hitting Walmart stores in limited numbers now, I am sure it is probably hard to start thinking about per-ordering the second wave. Never-the-less, the second wave of figures have gone up for pre-order on the Walmart website and are being listed with an October 9th release date. The figures went up for pre-order yesterday and have gone in and out of stock spasmodically since then. At the time of me posting this story, I believe the only figure currently listed as out of stock is the Scare Glow one. Here are links and UPC's for each one for now and future reference. Remember these are only Walmart exclusive for this year. Next year these figures should have a greater release at other retailers. - Masters of the Universe Origins Scare Glow - Price: $14.99 - UPC: 887961875393 - SKU: 228609285 - Masters of the Universe Origins Orko - Price $14.99 - UPC: 887961875386 - SKU: 110220109 - Masters of the Universe Origins Man-E-Faces - Price: $14.99 - UPC: 887961875362 - SKU: 111638551 Masters of the Universe Origins Trap Jaw - Price: $14.99 - UPC: 887961875416 - SKU: 889472276 Masters of the Universe Origins Man-At-Arms - Price: $14.99 - UPC: 887961875379 - SKU: 187651633 Check out images for all these figures below.
  4. This morning I was checking the Walmart website to see if by some of chance they had any of Mattel's new Masters of the Universe Origins figures actually in stock. After all the official release date for these toys was August 1st, and at least for now Walmart is the only place to get them. As usual, all the figures were listed as SOLD OUT until I came upon the Masters of the Universe Origins Teela figure. To my surprise Teela was showing as being available for purchase. Then I noticed the price. Instead of being listed with the normal $14.99 price these figures are supposed to cost, Walmart has Teela listed with a WHOPPING price of $36.00. That is more than double of what she should cost. At first I thought perhaps this was from a second-party seller you sometimes see on these big-box retail sites, which I might note are very annoying in their own right. When it's a second party seller however it is generally indicated somewhere on the page as such. Not here. There is even the option of having it sent to a physical Walmart store for pick-up which I don't believe is offered when its a second-party seller. So what exactly is going on here? Has Walmart taken product they have essentially released in limited numbers, hence creating an artificially inflated demand for them, and now trying to take advantage of that by gouging collectors who can't find these figures anywhere else??? That is certainly what appears to be happening. It's bad enough when we collectors have to deal with scalpers with this kind of thing, but this is taking it to a whole new level. Hopefully once word of this comes to light someone at Walmart will fix this, probably say it was just listed in error, but regardless this is just another example of what collectors are having to deal with on a regular basis simply to buy products that really shouldn't be the difficult to get.
  5. Looks like we are getting some new Black Series figures from Hasbro based on the final season of the Clone Wars animated series. The wave includes Ahsoka Tano, 332nd Ahsoka Clone, Mandalorian Loyalist and the Mandalorian Super Commando with the Darth Maul inspired helmet. Thats the good news. The bad new according to Gizmdo is that the price for these are going to be $25 each and available exclusively for pre-order at Walmart tomorrow from 10 a.m. EST tomorrow, June 17. It's not clear if these will be actual Walmart exclusives or that Walmart just gets first crack at taking pre-orders for them.
  6. For what I believe is NECA's final reveal of the day, they released this teaser images for what appears to be a figure set based on the Spinter's origin story in the 90's TMNT movie. The figures are of Splinters master Hamato Yoshi, Oroku Saki (Shredder before he was Shredder) and a rat in a cage named Spliter before he was transformed. You can see a clip from the movie with the scene here: This will likely be a Walmart exclusive but no other details are available at this time.
  7. NECA has release a new preview image for their upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie Tokka & Rahza 2-Pack which will be released later this year as a Walmart exclusive here in the US.
  8. 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. It looks like they won't be releasing all three two packs at the same time. Previously NECA had given three different release dates for wave 3 (7/16, 8/6, 8/20), and it looks like they will be staggering the release of the three 2-packs in the wave during those dates for both online and in store. The video game based versions of the Rock Soldiers are in question. NECA stated their fate is to be determined and they will be releasing the comic versions first. 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.
  9. Celebrating the 30th Anniversary of the classic Predator 2 movie, NECA is proud to announce the City Demon!

  10. Since the actual San Diego Comic Con itself has been canceled, at least the physical version, many have been wondering how or where they will be able to get their hands on Hasbro's exclusives this year. Well Walmart has launched a Comic-Con exclusive section on their website which features a countdown clock showing just over 4 days until launch (As I post this). This section appears to be an area comprised of various 2020 SDCC exclusives Walmart will be selling this year from various companies. While no actual product for Hasbro is yet listed, there is this banner on display there that has logos for several Hasbro brands including Star Wars: The Black Series. We have no idea how many exclusives Star Wars might get this year. Hasbro mentioned something about a Black Series exclusive in their last Fan-Channel live-stream event but have yet to provide any details about it. It's also not known if the Vintage Collection will get an exclusive this year or not. While it seems like a good bet Walmart will be a place to get Hasbro's exclusives, it's not clear if all of Hasbro's exclusives will be offered through Walmart or if Walmart is the only place people will be able to get them. It also isn't clear if any of these exclusives will be available at physical stores or just online. All those details I am sure will be coming soon from Hasbro.
  11. NECA has stated that they would officially start revealing details about this years San Diego Comic Con exclusives next week starting on Tuesday (7/7), but it looks like one of them has already started to see a release at Walmart. Over at the NECA Fan Group Facebook page images have surfaced that gives us a heads up about one of them which appears to be Gremlins based. It's said this figure was found on the shelves at Walmart. In an interview back in May, Randy Falk said NECA would be offering 4 exclusives this year, one of which would be TMNT based. He also said that the exclusives this year would be offered online and at brick and mortar stores like Target and Walmart, since the actual SDCC convention was canceled this year. Last week NECA posted a release schedule for upcoming TMNT products at Walmart and Target stores. With that, they listed two TMNT SDCC Excluive items coming to Target stores. -Exclusive Figure Boxed Set - 7/23 -Exclusive Merchandise Bundle - 7/23 Stay-tuned for more details next week on these and whatever else NECA has planned for Comic-Con exclusives this year.
  12. After last week's debacle with their Walmart exclusive TMNT Movie Casey Jones and Raphael In Disguise 2-pack sale, NECA has said they have heard the feedback from you and are actively working to improve things. Expect news in the coming weeks regarding our SDCC offerings and future TMNT availability online. They have also put out this phase 1 release schedule for both their TMNT Target and Walmart products for in stores and online. Cartoon Target Exclusive -Wave 3 - 7/16, 8/6, 8/20 -Metalhead - 7/16 -Bebop And Rocksteady Restock - 9/3 SDCC Exclusive Items (Target Exclusive) -Exclusive Figure Boxed Set - 7/23 -Exclusive Merchandise Bundle - 7/23 Movie Walmart Exclusive -Casey & Raphel In Disq - 6/29 -Leonardo/Donatello - 7/6 -Michelangelo and Raphael - 7/6 -Super Shredder - 8/10 Arcade (Specialty Exclusives) -Wave 2 - 7/14 While it's nice to have these release dates, the real fix for the problems collectors have had finding these items, is making sure the stores are stocking them in sufficient enough numbers. If the product is made readily available, then the scalpers won't buy them all up to try and resale them on the secondary market, because the demand will no longer be there for that. In other words they have to start shipping enough so they don't sell out in seconds, or require someone having to be there the moment they are put on shelves in order to get them. As much as we hope NECA is successful in accomplishing that, at this point we will believe it when we see it.
  13. Shown below are in-hand images for Mattel's third wave of Masters of the WWE which will be sold exclusively at Walmart stores here in the US. The wave includes the following figures - The Rock, The New Day, Braun Strowman and Glow-in-the-Dark Undertaker. A big thanks to Mattel for sending these out to us, and stay-tuned for an in-depth review of these to be posted soon.
  14. Back in February during Toy Fair, NECA announced that their TMNT Movie figures going forward would be exclusively sold at Walmart stores. During Toy Fair they showed off a new TMNT II The Secret Of The Ooze Super Shredder deluxe figure as well as 2-packs featuring Tokka & Rahza and Casey Jones And Raphael In Disguise. NECA has just recently stated that we can expect to start seeing the Walmart figures on shelves in June. These will also be sold on the Walmart website. The next wave of Target exclusive TMNT Animated series 2-Packs should also be out by the end of June. Check out images of the Walmart movie figures that were on hand at Toy Fair below.
  15. UPDATE 2: Additional out of package images have been added via ponkung. He breaks the figure down with the following articulation: - Ball Joint Head - Hinge Neck Peg - Ball Lower Neck - Ball/Disc Shoulders - Butterfly Shoulders - Double Hinge Elbows - Ball/Disc Hands - AB Crunch - Ball Waist - Ball with Swivel Thigh - Double Hinge Knees - Swivel Boots Top - Ball/Rocket Ankle -Backpack has another hole to hold sword sheath. -Sword sheath can also attach to Snake Eyes's back. -Silencer can be used with both pistol and submachine gun. UPDATE: An additional image featuring the Hasbro box the figure s UPDATE: An additional image featuring the Hasbro box the figure shipped in has been added which suggest this may be this year's SDCC exclusive. The Box is labled GIJoe Elite Convention Set. We will continue to update as more details become available. Liam gives us a heads UPDATE: Liam gives us a heads up that images giving us our first look at Hasbro's rumored 6" G.I.Joe Classified figures have hit social media. We aren't sure where the images originated from but we got them from the Full Force Podcast. The images show some type of deluxe version of Snake-Eyes. There have been rumors of some type of exclusive figure being released right out the gate for this line, likely to go up for order or pre-order this weekend. We suspect this will be that figure. The figure comes with fancy packaging and a number of accessories. My guess there will be a regular version that will not feature the outer packaging or quit as many accessories . One accessory that seems to be missing is Snake-Eyes' pet wolf named Timber. It's also worth noting that the artwork on the box is very similar to that used for the new G.I. Joe: War on Cobra App Game that was released earlier this year. Check out the images for this figure below and stay-tuned for more details as they become available. We should definitely hear more on this on Saturday during Hasbro's Toy Fair event which kicks off at 1:30PM ET. We will have full coverage of the event here on TNI. We are a week away from Toy Fair, which means we are likely a week away from Hasbro officially unveiling their rumored 6" G.I. Joe Classifed line of action figures. With that Walmart has listed two different assortments for the line on their website. Assortment 1 - SKU: 169988830 Assortment 2 - SKU SKU: 869896266 Unfortunately the website does not provide any specific details like images or which figures will be in each assortment. Assortment 1 is rumored to include Snake-Eyes, Duke, Destro, Scarlet and Roadblock. There have been a number of rumors floating around such as Build-A-Figures, Variants and store exclusives. This might be one of the most anticipated reveals for next weeks Toy Fair event, so be sure to check back On Saturday, February 22 around 2pm ET to get all the details, assuming they don't leak out sooner.
  16. UPDATE: Only "Classy" Freddie Blassie will be exclusive to Walmart, the rest should be available everywhere. Shown below is a look at Mattel's upcoming Walmart Exclusive WWE Elite Collection Wave 77 figures which includes "Classy" Freddie Blassie, "Ravishing" Rick Rude, AJ Styles and Ronda Rousey.

  20. Review By: Robert Greenwood Today I take a look at the new Walmart exclusive wave of WWE Elite Series Flashback figures from Mattel which include Shawn Michaels, Razor Ramon and Alundra Blayze. Each figure comes with a piece to re-create Shawn Michaels' Heartbreak Hotel Interview set. WWE Elite Flashback series: "The Heartbreak Kid" Shawn Michaels by Mattel They think he's cute and they know he's sexy. The heartbreaker, the show stopper, founding member of the Kliq, the Hall of Famer Shawn Michaels, aka Michael Hickenbottom, is represented here in his pre-DX and Post Rockers look. Mattel has been on a non-stop streak with no signs of stopping and this flashback series, which builds the titular character Shawn Michaels interview set the "Heartbreak Hotel," is just astounding to look at. This Elite flashback has captured not only the physical look of HBK's face, but his entire outfit has been faithfully recreated in toy form. The little nuances from his chains that connect the vest, his removable sunglasses, it's all here. He comes packed with the curtain and Heartbreak Hotel sign to help flush out the interview set. With him and the addition of the Flashback Razor Ramon (apart of this set), you can now relive their famous ladder match for the WWF World Intercontinental Championship belt. Is there anything negative to say about this figure? Yes, and this is as nitpicky as can be. When you remove his sunglasses, he has two small holes on either side of his temple. Honestly, that is a stretch, but finding fault with a toy that depicts the wrestler as he looked at that moment in his career, I really can't find anything off (maybe the face sculpt isn't photo realistic? But, that would be pushing it a bit.) When people think of Shawn Michaels, this is the Shawn most attuide fans will remember. The Shawn that lost his smile, the one who destroyed kayfabe by hugging it out with heels and faces alike in the middle of MSG. Shawn the epitome of arrogance.The over-the-top renegade who cared only for himself and put on instant classics in the ring. "The Heartbreak Kid" Shawn Michaels has now come home to collectors and fans alike. Mattel has hit high expectations with a very important figure in the annals of wrestling. A must buy and the only HBK figure that a collector will need. WWE Elite Flashback Series Doink the Clown by Mattel Send in the clowns. The master of carnival carnage has made the Elite treatment as part of the Heartbreak Hotel interview set. What can I possibly say about Doink the Clown? Mostly that he was played by at least two different wrestlers over the years and had a decent push during the time before the Attuide Era. Then, when WWE let most gimmicks go, he was pretty much gone. As far as the figure is concerned, he is as basic as can be. Sure, he is an Elite figure and he comes with all the articulation that should be expected for such. Yet, I feel there are a few factors that make this figure not as exciting as others. First of all, his face sculpt is nice, but it honestly doesn't look like Doink (maybe just a little). It looks more like a generic clown-like wrestling figure. I feel that he would work better as a clown-themed thug to place with a Joker action figure, which wouldn't be a bad idea if fans are looking to make army builders using Doink as lackeys. For any Joker figure, it would work great. Unfortunately, his only accessory is the leg lamp from the Heartbreak Hotel set, which is really a shame. If they could have added crazy unique clown themed items, this figure would have been given a breath of freshness and potentially a perfect figure to own. As for now, the only real reason people may buy him is to get said leg lamp, which is sort of wasteful. I love the Elite series and how Mattel takes big steps in having a very robust collection of wrestlers from every era of WWE, but some figures are a hard sell and without the leg lamp, Doink may not be a figure many people rush out to buy. WWE Elite Flashback Series Razor Ramon from Mattel The "Bad Guy" of the pre-attitude era makes his jump into the Elite ranks as part of the Heartbreak Hotel interview set. Razor Ramon, aka Scott Hall, came to WWE and crafted his gimmick based on the film Scarface. He was a greasy tough guy who took on anyone who came before him. The figure is, by far, the centerpiece of this series. A stand out figure for collectors and fans alike. Where do we start with? How about that he wears an actual fabric shirt modeled after his over- the-top Hawaiian style shirts he would where to the ring. He is covered in gold chains that would make Mr. T almost show respect. His face is sculpted exactly as he looked during the early 90s with the gelled back hair into a greasy ponytail and he is chewing on a toothpick, which is a signature part of his look. The articulation of Razor is by far the best of this whole line and I almost wished that Shawn Michaels had as much as this Razor figure. This figure looks, feels and poses like the "Bad Guy" himself and is a must own piece in the whole WWE Elite Flashback series. Only wish it included the Intercontinental title and a ladder so fans can recreate the famous Wrestlemania 10 ladder match with the Show Stopper, Shawn Michaels. WWE Elite Flashback Series Alundra Blayze Before today's modern woman's revolution and years before the term "Divas," the WWE had one of their best and brightest stars to come. She would have potentially changed women's wrestling after stigmas of it being a niche market, something almost as an afterthought. This, unfortunately, did not happen. Her name was Alundra Blayze. But after holding the women's title for 342 days she left and did one of the most controversial things ever broadcasted on professional wrestling. By jumping to the WCW and throwing her WWE (WWF) Championship Title in to a trash can on a live broadcast at a rival wrestling show. She was, for the most part, blacklisted and basically faded away to the history books. Years later, Alundra is now a Hall of Famer and has come out as an Elite figure, but is she worth the money? As far as the sculpt, she just passes representing what Alundra actually looks like. Her look is stylized and maybe a complete reuse of tooling, but it holds up and since she is a part of the Heartbreak Hotel interview collection, she will be needed to complete the set. The figure has a ton of articulation, but for some reason her upper body on the review sample seems to not want to hold a straight-up stance (she tends to lean a bit to either direction). She is packed with her Title and a piece of the Heartbreak Hotel interview set. The figure is a solid Elite style figure but it's missing the subtle details that would make someone scream "I need that Alundra Blayze figure in my life! " Yet, making her a part of the Heartbreak Hotel interview set helps to ease a buyer into owning a figure of a wrestler who never got the recognition she honestly deserved. Now fans can create dream matches that weren't possible and may never happen in real life. Thanks to the folks at Mattel for sending us these figures free of charge so we could review them. Check out more images fo all the figure below in our GALLERY!
