yeah, entered my redcard pin, hit complete purchase and then the order just vanished.
Yes...went to the confirmation page and got the empty cart message after clicking place order... They lasted about 30 seconds...
to add insult to injury, NECA's twitter avatar today is the TMNT set.
The only way for us as consumers to win is to make them eat this damn product, dont give in to the eBay or 2nd market scalpers, just dont do it, they prey on our impatience, but if we wait them out they can't afford to sit on these, not the avg scalper anyways
Every few refreshes I get the "Deliver It' button. I click it and it says item not added to cart. Item is out of stock.
Just sneaking in my video review of April vs Foot Soldier two-pack. Good luck with the ordering, I'm just sitting out this exclusive.
we've already lost people are already in a bidding war for a set on ebay
Guess that's that. I'm done trying. I hate SDCC exclusive bullshit.
If it's of use for anyone here, the TMNT Out of their Shell figures are up on Neca Store for international peeps
I think I'm done with NECA. I was begrudgingly praising their system for cancelling bot orders on their store site and then they went ahead and cancelled my order too, even though I didn't try to order more than one or place multiple orders or do any other shady shit.
I've been an apologist for them for years but between their increasing cock ups with orders, their TMNT figures being virtually impossible to find in any of my local Targets and Walmarts, and their dodgy QC, I just don't know if I have it in me anymore.
That's actually what I was asking about walmart the other day when their own timer counted down to zero then began negative numbers. And of course that was just a wonderful shopping experience through them when no pics or name showed and people just randomly bought lots of nothing. Was pretty funny to see all that stuff sell out and no one even knew what they were buying. That is when you know that consumerism has jumped the shark. People will buy anything apparently if you label it exclusive. Even stuff from your website that has no name or description can sell out in seconds.
I hear ya. I feel much the same way. At one point I wanted all-in on NECA toon tmnt. But after 3 waves of sheer madness, I’m only going to stick around for April, Splinter, and Krang Android Body. After that, I’m out.
Contact there CS, a few people mentioned this and got their orders honored, as far as Target, well we knew what it was before it happened, the only thing we can do is not jump on ebay
Wow, I completely forgot the SDCC stuff was going up. For reference, anyone have the link?
Too bad Target couldn't have a capia system that could be enabled on individual items. For these highy saught after collector items, turn it on. Leave it off for normal items.
Capchas don't work, I cant wait to see everybody complain about the ps5 preorders
They're supposed to have the 4 pk in stores as well today. Does Target have them in their system online to check stores if available? I can only find the online only bundle ones on their site.
I think the online listings are the only ones they have. For some reason, NECA in-store stock status seems tough to track. You gotta call or visit. If you give them the DPCI number over the phone, though, they ought to be able to tell you the staus readily. From what I have seen, the DPCI on the online listing is the same DPCI they use in-store.
omg. I never thought to just give the Target employee on the phone the DPCI. Genius!
I stopped calling recently because driving to any Target and looking myself is easier and faster than explaining “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 figure pack Casey Jones + Slashed Foot Soldier” to the person on the phone.
Lol...welcome! When they pull up the DPCI on their computer, they should also be able to provide the stock status for other stores in your area.
