    Hit two targets on my way home...one had 11 sets but no Bebop/Rocksteady and the second had 4 sets but still no B/R. Bah.

    Got the Shredder and Ras set today. Shredder is the winner in my view. Really love all of these Batman/Tmnt figures.

    So are the two-pack foot soldiers different from the ones released with Ralph/Mikey a few months ago?

    Nope, they are the exact same figure with the same accessories which is cool.

    I kind of feel like the Foot 2-pack would have had more appeal if there had been some slight variation on the accessories or maybe an interchangeable head - given that they're exactly the same, I'm less inclined to buy them again.

    My Target stocks three types of toys:
    1. Crap that nobody wants.
    2. Exclusives that're old news in Egypt.
    3. Street dated toys that can't be sold (Springer, Rocksteady/Bebop, etc).
    For as lousy as they are at inventory control, though, they are fucking superhuman at finding hidden toys. Doesn't matter where I put them, they're always found within 24 hours. Such was the fate of that Rocksteady and Bebop set. It's not a terrible loss because I wasn't entirely sold on the cel shading effect. I really would've preferred that Playmates hadn't fucked up their Classics line on purpose. But expecting a toy company not to fuck up constantly is like expecting your dog to start speaking the Queen's English.

    Haha for that I'm glad that I wasn't forced to buy them to get 1 extra accessory.

    Awesome! I don't think there's any way to imbed tweets on TFW.

    If NECA had included what they showed off at conventions in the Foot 2-pack like the additional weapons and that large head for the "smart foot soldier" from one episode, it would certainly give more incentive to get people to buy them.

    That would be from the episode “The Foot Soldiers Are Revolting”. The smart Foot Soldier was designated Alpha 1.

    … Bebop and Rocksteady are too big. <_< >_>

    It didn't bother me at first but, after watching a few episodes of the original toon, it bothers me now.

    I accept your hatred.

    Metalhead is one of those odd characters (like Slash), where I prefer the toy version to the animation version. If it doesn't have the vac metal/gold on it, I'mma probably pass.

    Gotta find em first, lol. I've been to Target daily, since they started hitting stores, and haven't seen any signs of this wave. I'm gonna give it another week and I guess get reamed on eBay.

    I overpaid for them too. I spent almost 20 dollars more having them shipped to me.

    Me too. I never liked either of their cartoon designs. Slash, especially, has a much better toy design.

    I’m a weakling. I finally caved on that DC Batgirl/Donny set. No issues out of the box, and both figures are actually nicer than I expected them to be. They could use a bit of lube, but they are otherwise pretty good. I will say, though, that Batgirl’s ankle joints are REALLY thin and look as though they could snap in a stiff breeze...but that’s just how she’s designed. They kind of look like figma joints...would be nice if there were some spare joints in the box... I’ll just have to be nice to her! Donny is pretty solid and has a greater range of motion than the BatMike I got a couple months ago. So, I’m happy with him. I still don’t like that I shelled out for a figure (Batgirl) that I really don’t want...but oh well...at least she’s cute and works decently.

    It’s just money! And, I would think some Batman fans would take the other figures off your hands if you aren’t real jazzed about keeping them. They do look good, IMO.
