Last thread: >>7553417Target is being restocked with the new Arcade Aliens, Arcade Dutch 2-pack, remake Jason, and more.Pennywise the Dancing Clown is out and being found at Gamestop and Target as well.Godzilla 2019 is out, as is Mothra 2019.But what you're really here for are the exclusives! This is it! Starting Wednesday the 5th, you too can go insane trying to beat a million other people to the click! Do you try to spread it out, buying only what you really want right away, or do you attempt to snag it all in one go? Choices, choices.
The big one, the Capture of Splinter 4-pack $125
Etched Pennywise $30
Mego style John Kreese from Karate Kid - $40
T2 John Connor - $50
Batman vs Predator - $60 (Bundled with Superman set so $120 total)
Superman vs Alien - $60 (Bundled with Batman set so $120 total)Randy teased that the regular Batman vs Joker xeno & likely the Green Lantern set will be NYCC exclusives.
>>7573473Oh yeah, I have seen some pics and reports of the TMNT 2-packs showing up at Target again. Glad those are still making it out.Anyway, may as well post the newest gets on my end. Bought Mothra from Gamestop. She's tiny, cute, the wings are really pretty. I imagine most people will skip her though.
>>7574479Got Pennywise at Gamestop as well. Like the other anon in the last thread, I can say the parts all swap very easily! Was happy to see that.
>>7574470They confirmed they're doing a Green Lantern set?
>>7574483Not officially, but it was shown in one of those studio pictures a long time ago. It's been heavily implied that'll be the second DC two pack they have for NYCC.The hands head on Pennywise has turned into my favorite one of the set.
>>7574486Mostly because I realized afterwards that the arms are articulated! They're pegged into the mouth and have hinges, so you can pose them a bit! Didn't expect that at all.
>>7574487The Deadlights head is nice, light is very bright, even on such a tiny hole in the throat. Realizing that hair piece is removable is nuts though, you really have to fiddle with it before it pops free.
And finally my last bit of haul from BBTS, Dutch & Linn. I was very surprised at how nice these two turned out to be. Linn's pretty awesome and I feel she may be the best of the two. I like her face a lot, and her ponytail being a ball joint allows for some fun posing options. It's going to be nice getting the aliens for these guys and the preds to fight.
>>7574491Assassin is as you've heard, huge, awesome...and hurts like a motherfucker. He's so damn sharp, my fingers were raw from popping hands, heads, and moving the tight ass joints. Yeesh.He stands super well, I was hsocked. Once you get him in a pose he'll stay there. I still worry about long term, but the joints are VERY sturdy. May get him a stand still just to be safe. I don't need a giant ass toy knocking over anything else.
>>7574491whats Dutch sad about?
>>7574509He can't afford the medical bills on his arm.
>>7574468>this will be impossible to get, especially if you live outside the united states of cheeseburgerNeca can draw succulently upon my cock
>>7574491>I like her face a lot
>>7574543It's a very good face sculpt, she looks cute. Pissed, but cute.
>>7574554>the Neca is supposed to look animeYikes!
>>7574570It's not. It's very obviously a realistic take on the designs.
>>7574491>>7574543Looks like a she-Dutch
Mothra is a fucking scam. Should have come with a Larva form.
>>7574479>She's cuteno>imagine most people will skip her though.because she is ugly
>>7575374>>7575378Kill yourself mothranon. You're a piece of shit troll.
>>7575389Mothra is so fucking ugly, I hope your gf never aborts your child like in the movie Nocturnal Animals so you NEVER have to witness the true depravity of what a real life American Mothra would look like in the flesh and bone
>>7575394Cool, I hope we get a green SDCC recolor exclusive like the photo on the right seems to reflect off of. Maybe it'll lead to a green repaint of KOTM Fatzilla
>>7575393Nobody cares, fag.
>>7574610Nothing about those eyes is realistic.
>>7575423you cared enough to reply
>>7574610>cartoony paint>realistic take
>>7575400Why green repaints?
>>7575505Where's the mental disconnect here? Yes, the sculpts are realistic, and the paint is meant to invoke a video game. You know, like all the video game repaint figures.
>>7575567yet no one actually want those and would rather get accurate paint schemes from the movies and such
>>7575495Because I'm annoyed by your faggy spamming, not because any of the shit you whine about matters
>>7575579Monsterarts is better than Neca.
>>7575567Then the faces should have been painted to look like they did in the game and the art.
>>7575576...These aren't based on movies dingus.>>7575583They are. They're just realistic takes on that. Don't be willfully stupid.
I feel like I need to buy another Part 3 Jason. He can't really hold any of his accessories.
>>7575567>Where's the mental disconnect here? >the sculpts are realistic>the paint is meant to invoke a video game.Answered your own question
>>7575591>they are except they're not
>>7575689>>7575691So you're being stupid on purpose. Okay, that's all you had to say.
>>7575394so If I'm looking at this right>no jaw articulation>have to do a head swap for open mouth
>>7575694You're the one saying contradictory things within the same post, dummy.
>>7575697There's nothing contradictory about it.
>>7575698So you're being stupid on purpose. Okay, that's all you had to say.
>>7575700Love it, you don't have an argument so you have to reuse what I said. Thanks, you're done.
>>7574470>Green LanternIs it Kyle or Hal?
>>7575704Love it, you don't have an argument so you shitpost and call people stupid instead of addressing their points. Thanks, you're done.
>>7575710Looks like Hal?
>>7575720Damn it, I'd kill for a new Kyle.
>>7575515I wouldnt pull out.
>>7574455I've managed to snag just about every TMNT con exclusive but I'm seriously considering passing this year. We're almost certainly going to see retail releases for these figures for 20-25 bucks each. So what, 30-40 bucks for a cardstock box and a weapon rack?If you lads want to pay the early adopter tax that's cool but I'm having a hard time justifying this one.
>>7574488Jeez. I liked the new It a lot, but felt zero compulsion to buy a Pennywise figure until seeing this. That Deadlights head is beautiful, and I'm surprised they actually sprang for an LED. Did they do it like Isaac's head, where there's an LED encased in a clear balljoint that funnels through to the head?
>>7574494I really wanted this figure, even with the stupid looking digitigrade legs. But I finally saw the movie this week and I'm just so fucking disappointed I don't know if I can bring myself to even look at this figure anymore. Goddammit Shane.
>>7575695The figure is going to be relatively tiny, a hinged jaw at such a small size would have been fragile, or really messed with the sculpt.
>>7575736Didn't DC Multiverse put out a pretty nice one just recently?
>>7575720Are we sure that's a Neca GL and not just one of the many other figures from other companies they have on display in that room?
>>7576028I understand, believe me. I hate that movie with a passion. I'm a sucker for cool figures though.>>7576027The LED is completely contained in the head this time, the rest of the figure is the same as we've gotten every time before. So you don't lose any articulation with the head, you can tilt, swivel, etc.
What's the most photogenic neca figure?
>>7576434Pan's Labyrinth fawn?
I forgot to post the Gamestop cloaked City Hunter. This should be out later this week? I think?
What's going on here? Wrong piece on the head? Broken?
>>7576894Resize your fucking pictures. And it's just a molding error.
>>7576894Appalachian alien going by the teeth
>>7576901Why, so some crybaby fag can complain that a picture of a QC issue is too small?
>>7576901I normally do, but I figured large and clear would be best when pointing to the problem here.
>>7576909What exactly are you pointing at that's the problem? The little curve on the plastic where the "eye" would be? Then yeah, that's just a molding issue, it didn't get filled in all the way when casting.
Anyone else convince their girlfriend to help obtain an SDCC Exclusive tomorrow?
>>7576035Didn't know about that, I can never find any of the DC figures in stores.
Picked up the new AvP arcade aliens at Target! No problems at all, everything moves well. Well, ONE spot is a little tricky, it's the Chrysalis alien's face. It's a really interesting joint, the main chunk of it is on this ball joint that's slotted into a track under the crown. Had to use heat to get it moving all the way forward. And it's a bitch to get moved back in, but it will do it. My fingers are sore as hell now though.
You guys ready for the clusterfuck tomorrow? Remember, log into paypal beforehand to save time!
>>7577126I'm ready but not ready. I'm trying to decide if doing Paypal would be faster or just copy-pasting my cc info...
>>7577126Just did, going to ask my gf if she has one or Apple Pay.
>>7577126Do I do that before 10am pst? There doesn't seem to be to save the paypal option on the Neca website.
>>7576894>dat dome, those teethYikes.
>>7577293Yes, so when clicking on the paypal button on checkout, you don't have to waste time logging in on paypal's website when redirected.
>>7576894Oof, that blows.Sorry about your molding issue anon, good luck getting a refund or something.Reminds me of the guy who basically had the same thing happen two toku generals ago with his SHF amazon neo omega.
>>7577114That's a bit of a bummer to hear, Chrysalis is the one I was anticipating the most. Although...the standard warrior is looking pretty sweet, the head shape is unexpectedly sorta elegant looking here and I like the tiny, short-looking teeth.
>>7576894I don't see the issue. NECA can do no wrong.
>>7577501Yeah, they're really cool figures! The long ass head on the basic warrior is very early concept xeno to me. I like that. And I still recommend Chrysalis, just use heat and wiggle that head piece out. It helps when you actually see how the joint works.
>>7576894Nothing wrong. They're hilly-billy aliens.
>>7577542>NECA can do no wrong
>>7577639>falling for the obvious trollYou really are retarded
SDCC exclusives go live in less than 30 mins.
>>7577995There's going to be a "Buy All" option apparently. If you were going to get all but one or two, that might be the best route...sell the unwanted stuff off after.
The anxiety is killing me.
good luck everyone
GO GO GO GO
huh, that was actually pretty easy
>can't buy because don't live in BurgerstanFuck you Neca
stuck in check out for 1min fuck me
Bought the bundle...fuck paying the extra $40 for the karate kid guy, I'll sell him off for cost later. Just good to have this over.
>>7578052and its sold outobviously
the site didn't crash this time, that's nice.
Scored a turtle set, being stuck at the "checkout" button for awhile had me worried, but I got through.
Huh. Just used bots, and they surprisingly worked. Got 4 turtles going to 2 different addresses.See you on eBay, guys!
Fuck me and I cancelled my Mythic Legions preorders for this.
>>7578062>he missed the memo of them checking every order for bots and funny businessI know you're trolling/fucking around, but yeah.
>>7578066You got two more days man, don't give up just yet.
>>7578068>trusting Neca, the guys who can't sell the Batman and Superman packs separately for "inventory reasons" to be able to identify botsI'm laughing all the way to the bank!
>>7578066>>7578067The second and third days are usually easier to get what you want, don't worry.
Got stuck in checkout for the Turtles. Failed. Managed to get John Connor though. Half success. Man that was stressful as fuck.
Got John!!!! Ahhhh I’m so tucking excited
>>7578052Shit, me too.
>>7578081Same, with help from my girlfriend. Now we know who’s internet’s faster.
>>7578052I went into full on panic mode when this happened but luckily I got through before it was too late.
>>7578144good for you, ill try again tomorrow and Fridayhopefully I can get one tmnt. if not really hopping on a Target or GameStop exclusive like older ssdd i hate playmates soo much
So what do you guys think for SDCC 2020? I say April's Apartment Battle set with April, Casey, Tatsu, and another Foot Ninja.Then SDCC 2021 Secret of the Ooze set with Super Shredder, Tokka, Rahzar, and Keno.
>>7578332I would die to have a Tokka and Rahzar. Super Shredder is a dream, too. I was obsessed with him as a kid, when Playmates actually made one (I remember walking into a KB toys and seeing it) I lost my mind. Got him for Christmas that year...was so happy.Them doing movie Splinter has me pretty much thinking a toon Splinter is guaranteed now, he's definitely my other big want from the toon line.
>>7578051Literally me. >tfw customer service stops replying to me the moment I mention I live overseasFuck you Neca.
>>7578332More than likely the movie line will not have real people from facial likeness rights issues. I see tokka and rahzar and two more foot soldiers. That would be great for a little foot army with them potentially being available at GameStop as singles.. As for the toon series. We know we are getting bebop and rocksteady. I would love to see cartoon Splinter, April O’Neil, Casey Jones, Baxter Stockman and a mouser and go on from there.. I want the body for krang big time.
>>7578523lmao i live in the US and they stopped responding to me after i described what what wrong with my predator after they said they couldnt see what was wrong with it
>>7578592No TatsuWell fuck you
>>7578592Shredder has a facial likeness you know. His mouthplate comes off. At least on the large scale version.
QUESTION:I wanna get in on this NECA SDCC exclusive action, but if I preorder a SDCC exclusive figure when does it ship?Cus my debit card expires in july. If I preorder it, it will charge my card when it ships, and if it ships after it expires my order will be cancelled I assume, right?
>>7578959Not a surprise, but I love that this is a thing
>>7578994Pretty sure they charge you when you order
How do you fellas safely free up the joints on old neca figures? I just got pic related and his hip joints are both stuck, when I try to move them the plastic just flexes. Any tips? I've tried hot water with no success.
>>7579100You can always keep trying hot water or a blow dryer, but typically what I do is instead of heating and turning, I just disassemble the figure, let it cool, then reheat the sockets and assemble it again
>>7579100>>7579155But really you're not gonna get much use out of that articulation anyway, so I'd just leave it alone.
>>7576894While that’s so fucking sad and lazy on NECA I do like the visual
>>7578592I really fuckin want a Keno, but I'm sure it won't happen. And even if it did, NECA's track record of Asian face sculpts ain't great.
>>7579174>lazyIt's a molding error. It happens. It's an unforeseeable problem at the factory when hundreds of pieces are being molded every hour.
Sure, but the QC guy was definitely asleep at the wheel.
>>7579397A Chinese worker that throws together these insane creatures every day won't know the difference. You can't really expect them to know better on something like that.
>>7579400>You can't really expect them to know betterIt's literally his job.The guy throwing together the creatures isn't the same guy QCing, y'know? They have different jobs. Which they are taught to do. The QC guy's job is literally to know what the toy is supposed to look like and check that the ones coming off the line match it.
>>7579403And I bet you that little weird mold defect is something that he wouldn't even notice on a creature like this. On top of the thousands of figures that come through there, that's going to happen.
>>7574494can you compare him to a normal predator?
>>7578959>Grinchs penis grew 5 times that day
>>7578996ah cool, thanks
Round 2 for the exclusives is coming up in a few minutes! Log in now, be ready.If you get that checkout button bug, refresh the page!
Got my Pennywise. I'm glad he's not the most popular thing, and knowing that the turtles characters will eventually be released individually makes me okay with not getting the exclusives.
>>7579720Did NECA confirm individual release? I missed the set but got the DC 2 pack so still a win!
>>7579720Same, my girlfriend got one too. Might get another John Connor tomorrow, if I really want to.
>>7579731Not officially, but someone asked if they should just assume GameStop will get individual releases eventually and Randy's response was some coy/teasing response.
I scored a Turtles set. I had the checkout bug but it eventually let me in.
>>7579746The only problem right now is I only have Raphael from the Gamestop release.
You know what would be cool? If NECA decides to go the extra mile and give other licenses they have and make Kenner/Playmates style-lines for them with over-the-top vehicles to go with them.Would love Kenner Beetlejuice-esque, Nightmare On Elm Street, Friday The 13th, and It toylines and an Evil Dead series with different Ash variants fighting various deadites with vehicles like the Oldsmobile and maybe even an armed shopping cart.
>>7578959Loving this. Other than even more pumpkins, not sure what else he'd need.
>>7579761I literally don't know anything about this movie. But I love the holiday of Halloween so I might get this just for the accessories and the pure aesthetic of it.
>>7579786Ironically, that's why I bought the first figure. I had only heard the movie was good, but at that point, it was still not getting distributed anywhere. I think it was a year later before it got a DVD release.
>>7578959 Which movie?
>>7579920Trick 'r Treat
>>7578959>>7579761Now if only we can get pic related.
>>7577114>>7577116My Crystalis's upper elbow joint won't fully move. Can anyone please help?
>>7580025Heat it up, get it soft enough to jiggle-move. Don't force it immediately, once it's soft enough and you get the right leverage it'll move.
>>7578959>>7579761I'm so fucking angry I bought the old one now
>>7580074You need the base or something?
>>7579786It's a great movie, especially if you're really into Halloween.It's basically a horror anthology but every story takes place on Halloween night in one town, and each story kinda leads into/slightly connects to the other. Sam, the figure NECA is making, basically makes a cameo in each one and then plays a bigger role in the finale.
>waitting for 10 am to buy splinter>internet goes down on 10 am>FML>4hr later I have an internet connection fuck me, something stupid gonna happen tomorrow and prevent me from ordering splinter
>>7579743man, if that's true we just have to wait for a year right? i can do that
>>7580021I feel like if Krampus was made he'd have to be around the size of the big ass assassin predator
>>7580156Not even, try 4 months. It was a mixed feeling seeing them get announced so soon after I paid scalpers fee.
Is it normal for Neca customer service to stop replying over something wrong with a figure? The thigh armor on the right of the image is the wrong armor part, and I havent heard anything back since I pointed that out to them
>>7580981They get back to you when they can, if they even have any parts to help with.
>>7580994Just thought it was odd since I responded not five minutes after receiving their email
>>7580039Doesn't work. I'm pretty sire the problem is that the joint is too big.
the new godzilla is much better than the 2014 release
get ready boys
Sweet, I got another John Connor.
Cart jacked on the TMNT set again! C'mon GameStop
>>7581494That sucks man, sorry that happened to ya.
>tfw missed out on the TMNT 4-pack>tfw reasonably confident that NECA will release them at retail but there's always a chance they won't
>want to buy SDDC sets>NECA doesn't ship to EU>want to buy Limited Edition blu ray sets>NECA doesn't ship to EU>contact neca support for them to ship me an actual working figure>neca doesn't ship to EU
>>7581596I feel that pain
With all the GDT stuff lately Neca must have the license for the upcoming scary stories movie right? God I hope so
>>7581596Buy me a set as well and I'll ship one of them to the UK for you
>>7580981I once was in contact with neca for almost a year trying to get some parts replacements for one of my figures. They basically told me after a year to return it to the store I bought it from. Plot twist: I bought it early from a blizzcon so there was no way I could return it.
>>7579761No one would buy it, but the vampire kid from the school bus vignette would make for a cool figure.
>>7581865yeah ive tried emailing the store i bought it from multiple times and they refuse to respond. I noted that to Neca on their contact for, but now they stopped responding too
>>7581283It's the same basic body. Articulation is still sub-par.
>>7582075>Articulation is still sub-par.It's really not. It moves as much as I need a Godzilla to move.
The Alien club Kenner packaging xeno is finally coming out. I've had two on pre-order for a while, glad to hear they're shipping next week.
>>7581837I hope so too, but so far the GDT line is from movies directed by GDT. He didn't direct the Scary Stories movie, he is producing it
>>7577114>>7577116>>7576803While these looks pretty cool, I think I'm out of the NECA game. Their prices are just increasing and I have had too many issues with quality control.
>>7583031The prices are indeed increasing, which sucks. But that's toys in general now...our hobby is getting badly pricey.QC-wise I've had nothing but good things to say for the last pile of purchases.
The price has increased because people wanted more accessories and more articulation, and were willing to spend more to get it. That's why we have Ultimate and Deluxe releases that have multiple heads, multiple hands, several accessories, and more articulation, and we pay $25-$30 now, instead of paying $20 for a figure with 1-2 accessories, nothing else, and less articulation.
neca is slowly pricing me out as well. Once they reach $30 for a basic figure I’m out.
>>7583136>our hobby is getting badly pricey.Ya, I do think toy prices are overall increasing but I think I have been spoiled by some imports and other brands. >QC-wise I've had nothing but good things to say for the last pile of purchases.Well, you are lucky. I have had to return items often over the past 3 years, sometimes the more than once.>Broken City Hunter twice (wrist blade and spear)>Broken Warrior Alien (arm snapped)>Concrete Jungle Predator (face mandible broke)>Serpent Hunter (tooth was chipped on the mask)>Frost (light peg broke)>Stalker Predator (spear and small spears broke)>T-800 (arm pistol broke)>Jungle Hunter (paint was somehow wet?! left finger prints)Writing that all out really make me reflect, Jesus.>>7583155I would be okay with this, if the quality wasn't so hit or miss. That's my main issue. I would rather paid 45 dollars for a import that I don't have to worry about breaking so easily.
I'll take the 20 to 25-30 dollar hike over the past 9 years over imports 30 dollar to 50-80 dollar hike.
>>7583350>>Serpent Hunter (tooth was chipped on the mask)You do know that was a widespread factory problem and they sent out replacement, fixed, heads, right?
>>7583637This. Imports have skyrocketed to an absurd degree, and they aren't even giving us as many accessories or paint apps as we used to get.
>>7583767Yen's value increased. It was down low a few years back. That was the golden time.
>>7583855Not nearly that much, though. It still favors the USD more. Its consistently 110Y~$1. At its weakest, it was probably 130Y~$1. And 5 or so years ago, it was actually probably closer favoring the Yen over the dollar at more along the lines of like 80Y~$1.Its still right in the middle there, and shouldn't have really favored import toys double or even tripling in price.
Hopefully parts 7 and 8 get teased soon
>>7574479Is she worth the price despite being so small?
>>7584021I have a hard time answering that. For me, she was, but I like the design and I really, really liked the movie. Also, I don't want to spend $100 for the Monsterarts.
>>7582078Can't look up, can't hunch down.
>>7584060Oh boo hoo. That doesn't detract from it being a great figure.
Which is the best of the 3?Leaning towards claws
paid $175 for the Gamestop Turtles today at a local vintage toy store. Feel like such a fucking asshole because I had them in my cart TWICE when they were up for preorder and passed.
>>7584190I only grabbed them because I scored the SDCC on Thursday. I only had a lone Raph that I found at Gamestop. Can't decide if I should sell him or open.
>>7584190Anon, you do know GameStop is getting more later in the year right?
>>7584193I haven't seen anything confirmed
>>7584196Im pretty sure they said something about it. I’d have to find look it up but my friend that works at GameStop said they should be getting more later in the year.
>>7584115The one in the middle because it use the AvP body, the other two will be super loose in a few months.
>>7583767>Imports have skyrocketed to an absurd degree, and they aren't even giving us as many accessories or paint apps as we used to get.Agreed. I found my way into high end action figure collecting through imports and IMO it's gotten to a point where imports aren't even that impressive compared to stuff coming from Mezco or Neca. Even Hasbro figures offer pretty equivalent quality. Compare Lighting Collection White Ranger to the SHF, or Ultimates Tracer to the Figma.
Been wondering how to go about fixing the floppy legs on Part VI Jason and finally decided to go with using a box cutter to separate the pelvis parts and thicken the hip pegs as was previously recommended. However, I've tried from all sides and can't get the blade deep enough to pry it open. Any advice? Otherwise, I'm gonna have to try dripping superglue into pelvis around the hip joints and I fear that'll end poorly.
>>7584115The clawed xeno is pretty fucking cool. I think if you're going for a more basic one, go with that. I actually kind of like the arachnid, it's just really interesting looking with that head.
>>7584115The razor claw if you can find a good one, but so far I had one chrysalis break, and then one razor claw with a thigh that wouldn't twist for whatever reason, and I wasn't about to twist it off. I wish neca would incest in a better material for joints, even if it meant bumping up the prices $5
>>7583719I do, but I was honestly too lazy to contact NECA. After all the issues I have had, I was just done with it
>>7584526Arachnid is dog with better feet. Which makes me kind of want him, but idk, claws definitely gets my preference.
>>7581984I found their customer service Twitter responds quickly and often so I recommend going that route.
I keep logging in to the store to make sure my order is there. I need this shit shipped so I can breathe easy. July can't get here fast enough.
NECA figure when?
>>7586559this was put in the game as a cross promotion for the movie
>>7584277Alright, I had to slice a bit more than I was comfortable with and the groin piece is in kinda rough shape in some places after all of it, but thankfully the rubber groin sleeve covers any rough parts and his legs work great now.Unfortunately, I don't think the same trick will work for the NES Predator I have without being extremely noticeable. Any advice on fixing his legs that would be non-intrusive?
>>7586559>tfw no ultimate gears of war lineFuck me I would fork out so much for the original delta squad and various locust
>>7586782Same. I owned a few Gears of War figs back in the day, and I thought they were phenomenal, but for some reason I put no further effort into collecting the line. Now I feel like I really missed out, especially on some of the cooler/bigger Locust who cost a ton on the aftermarket.I know we're never gonna get such a comprehensive Gears lineup again, but a second chance at the mains with updated articulation would be so nice.
>>7586838>>7586782Wait some of these are expensive? Even loose? I see the Gears figs all the time at garage sales and flea markets in the $5 bins.
>>7586911Depends which figure it is, if it's in good shape, if it's complete, etc. but yeah, some figures can fetch pretty decent prices. IIRC Palace Guards, Boomers, Skorge, basically big/cool ones are usually pricey.
>>7586955Hmm. Do I need a repaint?
>>7587037Probably not, but if you're going to get one at all...this seems like a solid one to own. Very eye catching.
Laurie Strode is available on the online stores if you need her.
>>7586954>>7586955This hitting stores soon?
>>7587098I really want the guns from this figure. Laurie, not so much.Maybe someone in the BST is looking for a cheap grandma.
>>7587115A hot grandma
>>7586954>>7586955This is a solid repaint. I skipped the video game repaint NECA did, but this is too nice looking to pass up. The packaging is stellar. I have all my other NECA Godzilla figures displayed on my desk, but this guy I think I might hang up on the wall above the Godzilla figure display in his packaging.
What happened with the NECA TMNT Leatherhead?
>>7586955This is fucking rad, but I feel like it needs the context to really reach its true potential. Like, this needs a backdrop/diorama, or to be displayed in front of that poster. Or to just not be opened I guess, but who the fuck wants to do that.
>>7587309It does, according to their Instagram page.
>>7587371An actual cool repaint though.
>>7587316jesus thats kino as fuck
>>7583155Yeah but they're re-releasing $25 figures from two years ago for $30 now. That's a significant jump for a straight reissue so soon.
>>7583155The basic non-ultimate releases are already $25 and up
>>7580981Yes. Sometimes they never contact you back.
>>7587432Or sometimes they do and the just ghost you
>>7587283It's in the 4pack still, likely as the exclusive for NYCC.
Holy shit I went to target to see if they got anymore Arcade aliens in stock, and it was all fuckin Golden Girls. Like goddamn I didn't know they were that in demand. I just want a razor claw, not some old biddy
This was my Target today. Happy to see the TMNT figures are still getting out.
>>7588239Damn, that's a nice Neca section.
>>7588239wish mine looked like this, we're lucky to get freddies and jasons from months ago here.
>>7588239how's randy's dick taste, shill
>>7587516>Likely as the exclusive for NYCCFuck. So they're gonna be scalped to hell and way more expensive than they should be? Probably just end up finding a bootleg leather-head somewhere.
>>7588333Trips confirm low tier troll.>>7588336Do you want video game Leatherhead or toon? Because that Leatherhead was the video game version, and that's what the exclusive will be. The regular figure will hit Target like the rest.
>>7587117That looks like a comfy garden out back.
>>7588337Video game. The toon isn't terrible looking....But if you're gonna spend money might as well get the one you really want, right? Thanks for the info my dude.
>>7588239Shit, this is beautiful. My local Targets are terrible, one has a NECA section that's always picked clean, and the other has no NECA section at all.
>>7586574Bump for advice on NES Pred.
>>7575704You sound like a retard faggot, he's right.
>>7588239God I wish my Targets looked like this.
>>7588583Thanks for that utterly pointless input Steve.
Neca makes,>Jungle Hunter/Dutch>City Hunter/....But no Detective Murtagh....Why do welive in such a horrible place.....
>>7588660same>turtles, assassin pred, godzilla vs kongThe closest thing to new stuff mine has are the arcade xenos and 2009 Jason, neither of which interest me too much. Waiting for part 5/Roy and I never played the AVP game so I have zero nostalgia for them.
Holy hell even after boiling, Im terrified to move my Arachnoid alien around after the snafu with how fast my Chrysalis Alien snapped. I've never had any issues with a figure before, but then just a series of bad things with these last few. Am I being paranoid over nothing?
>>7588699I mean, I guess? I didn't have any problem moving my Arachnoid around. Or any of them really...Once I freed up the joints all was fine.
>>7588660>>7588698ditto there a comic shop right next door to my local target and i have been seeing some neca stuff in there so i have a feeling there scalping the new stock
>>7588672Maybe Danny Glover didn't sign off for his likeness to be used.
Anyone here own the AVP Dutch & Linn?Holy shit, is Dutch supposed to look like pic? This has to be a joke right?
>>7589138Well he did actually have eyes in the game.
>>7589138Looks absolutely nothing like the source. And how is that bait? Because he turned out to have a meme worthy face?
>>7589132I give a pass for the hair and color scheme, but that expression is just too much.
>>7589158It does look like the source material, done in a realistic way to match the body sculpts.
>>7589132I just wish I had an actual Predator Dutch to do a head swap
What do I do when joints are two large to move? My Crystalis's middle arns and my Gamer Gremlin's wrists won't fully move.
>>7589345You pay the NECA qc toll>>7589275>it looks like the source materiel if you stylize it heavily! What is realistic about having no eyes? lol!
>>7589349He's squinting, the fuck is wrong with you?
>>7589377>eyes totally shutThat's not how humans squint.
>>7589442It is when you're a stylized scowling muscleman.
>>7589443>all this Neca defense>all that Hasbro defense in the other threadGo back to /furi/ with the rest of the mentally unstable fucks you like to hang out with and SAY MY NAME over there
NECA is doing Dark Fate after all.
>>7589456Fuck. I've been replaying RE4 on Switch and for a sec in the thumbnail I thought this was a new Leon to celebrate that release.
>>7589486Yeah, what about it? It's a well done port and I can take it with me wherever I go.
So who from Neca browses here?
>>7589456>>7589457Where is the tranny?
>>7589514Hopefully never coming. I want these pretty bad, but boy I bet the movie will suck.
>>7589565This line of trolling is really nonsensical.
>>7589572This post is really nonsensical.
>>7589349>>it looks like the source materiel if you stylize it heavily!"It looks like the game but it doesn't" has been their nonsensical defense for a minute now.
>>7589679You're right. The actual figures aren't bad, but they don't look much like the source material. I feel like fewer people would be complaining the head sculpts at least looked good.At least the Aliens are really good though.
>>7589565>>7589572>>7589677video games are the most useless form of entertainment
>>7589683>but they don't look much like the source materialThey absolutely do look like the source material. There's no mistaking who else they could be. They're just done with realistic proportions. That doesn't change who they're meant to be or what they're from.>>7589679You have no argument, you're just parroting a phrase because you're trolling.
Damn, even Neca's twitter customer support is ignoring my DMs. GG neca
>>7589989I doubt they're ignoring your dms. They take time to get back to you.
>>7589994Not them, but they've always gotten back to me within 12 hours. Usually way less.
>>7589700>You have no argumentWhy does everything have to be an argument with you? Fuck off, weenie.
>>7576148is this set some sort of exclusive or readily available? i might get it just for the arms in mouth and the glowing head.
>>7590484The new Pennywise? Common release, I've seen it at two Gamestops now for $30.
That wrestler guy got the SDCC set early again. They look gooooooood.
>>7590857Zack, if you post here I'm beggin' ya, learn how to pose your figures.
>>7590857I wish I was a celebrity so I could get free shit I fanboy over.
>>7591401The figure looks good, but there's something kind of unsettling about a topless Predator wearing nothing but a codpiece and fishnets.Seems like he should be dancing in a cabaret, or something.
>>7591430Who says he can't? The magic of gay pred is only limited by your imagination!
>>7591430>>7591436Yeah. I feel like I gotta get a 1/12 stripper pole for him.
>>7591430I thought everyone loves predators because of their sexy fishnets
>>7591401>>7591438>>7591430>>7591458>predator lapdanceMake it happen.
>>7591493What're you huntin' tonight anon?
>>7591529I'm looking for booty.
>>7590857Do they come with that backdrop? I'm usually not into photo backdrops, I think it looks cheesy as fuck, but something about that New York skyline brings intense OG TMNT movie feels. I like it.
I was ready to cut all ties with that horrible new Predator movie, but I saw Assassin in person for the first time today, and wow. I had an immediate kneejerk reaction of "want," it's just such a huge and well-made looking toy. Now that desire needs to wrestle with my hate for the movie, my qualms with the design, and the fact that the only place I've found it is at my LCS, which is charging like $65 or some shit.
>>7592042No, that backdrop is actually part of the SDCC TMNT exclusive diorama. However, the regular diorama release does have a reversable backer, so you can have day or night.
>>7592046Honestly, if you think it looks cool, just get it. All accounts so far seem to say he's great. Outside of Predator and P2, most of the movies with Preds in them suck anyway. NECA has actually done a pretty good job making the shitty Predators into cool figures. The AvP movie figures are probably the best Pred body they've done. Everyone hates Requiem, but people are also eagerly anticipating Wolf. Even the super Preds from Predators were kinda cool, though now desperately need an update.
Ultimate FvJ freddy soon?
>>7592794Might not happen. They were talking about that stuff on Twitter, and it sounds like there's more rights bullshit going on with Freddy and Jason. Worst case scenario I could see them not being able to make anything for a while.
>>7592837Guessing something to do with the rights battle over the Friday the 13th and Jason ips.Still if they can at least get fvj Jason out Freddy tends to stay very similar between all the movies that another Freddy could be easily used as a standin.Would it be 100% accurate, no. But itd be much closer than any other Jason vs. Freddy.Still a fvj Freddy with a swappable pissed off demon head when Jason woke up and was left with Lori would be awesome
Which NECa Gypsy Danger is the good one? Was it Hong Kong Brawl?
>>7593012Get the Ultimate one, it's got a lot of nice features.
>>7592837>I could see them not being able to make anything for a while.Good
>>7593204Not good at all.
>>7593248Good for others who are tired of them churning out Jason after Jason after Jason after Jason. You got your precious Roy Burns, now shut the fuck up.
>>7593258Not the same anon, but i don't get it. What's the problem with people who like Jason getting figure after figure? Hell, as far as i'm concerned people should get as many figures of their favorite characters as possible.
>>7593258Oh fuck off. There's a shitload of things coming out, people getting their Jason and Freddy's doesn't hurt you at all you bitch.
>>7593757Aside from them flooding every Target shelf? It’s okay to cry, bitch. No more Jasons for a looooooong time :)
