NECA ANNOUNCES SDCC FIGURE LINEUP AND TIMELINE OF FUTURE RELEASES

NECA toys has been one of, if not the number one, sought after figure for each year’s Comic-Con. They were the first to bring us figures based on the 90’s film, the arcade classics, and the Mirage comic series.

They have reached a new level of insanity with this year’s Comic-Con exclusive release.

NECA has announced the TMNT Musical Mutagen Tour 4 Pack!

 From NECA ONLINE:

Own a part of turtles history with the TMNT Musical Mutagen Tour 4 Pack!

This one of a kind box set will take you back to 1990 at the pinnacle of the turtles fandom where Leo, Donnie, Raph, and Mikey traded in their martial arts weapons for instruments and became rock stars. All 4 turtles are dressed in real fabric, band themed apparel and come with a slew of new accessories including a saxophone, keyboard, guitar, and a one string bass! Also included are mask accessories, a pizza, and 4 sets of interchangeable hands.

This is complete ridiculousness and I need the entire set. This is a crazy part of TMNT history that will now live in collections everywhere. NECA has hit it out of the park with their attention to packaging , costumes, and accessories.

Here’s where it gets tricky. Due to the ongoing Global Health Crisis, all conventions for the year 2020 (at least for entertainment) are being postponed. Both San Diego Comic-Con and New York Comic Con are not happening this year. So, this years convention exclusives for NECA Toys will be released through third party retailers.

This set of TMNT figures is being released on 7/23 through Target.com. Some additional information from the NECA site.

Pre-Sale Details

DATE: July 23, 2020

LOCATION: The NECA Store for TMNT(International Orders ONLY), Predator, Gremlins, Alien & Target.com for TMNT in the US

HOW IT WORKS:

On the sale day we will put a set amount of stock up for sale – once that quantity is sold out, the sale is over.

SHIPPING DETAILS:

The NECA Store will be allowing for both US and international orders(over 20 countries). Shipping begins the first full week of August, but due to the volume of orders, some orders may not ship until mid-August.

PURCHASE LIMITS:

2 of each item per household. ***We take a hard stance on scalpers and bots. DUPLICATE AND BOT ORDERS WILL BE CANCELLED.***

Additionally, the Wal-Mart exclusive 2-pack release was met with a fair share of criticism. They seemed to sell out instantly with a promise of restock that never came. In response, NECA has released a tentative calendar for future releases.

What do you think about the release?

Will you try getting this set? Are you still holding out for a future version not released yet? Let us know in the comments! Just remember, no amount of figures will make up for your rendition of Skipping Stones.
