    I never liked Shredder’s toy design. Whose idea was it to leave him shirtless lol

    I had the same debate! I have two sets of NECA turtles; I’m going to place the disguised versions on the shelves and the dark green set in the van.

    I remember hearing/reading a long time ago that it wasn't supposed to be? I don't remember the specifics, but he was either supposed to get a soft-goods shirt/robe thing, or his torso was supposed to be a different colored plastic?

    I'm surprised no one has made a cloth tunic for S7 Shredder.

    The torso has no moving joints like an ab crunch or butterflies. If I get a S7 Shredder, I'ma paint it black to give him a ML-style spandex top. XD I think black would work best to go with the rest of the color scheme, at least.

    I believe it was originally supposed to be either a different colored plastic or painted over. I do remember that the guy who did the toy design was the same guy who worked on the early MOTU stuff after he left Mattel.

    BBTS charged me for Super 7 Ultimate Michelangelo.

    Now the wait for it to ship begins.

    Edit -

    He shipped.

    Checked the tracking and it says information sent.

    I’m gonna take a wait-and-see approach with that. I’m curious as to how much and what kind of merchandise they will be able to source and deliver. Options are good…hopefully this one turns out to be a reliable one.

    TRU’s partnership with Target beginning at the end of 2019 was largely online fulfillment and a small number of their “R” Brand items in store. I’m expecting something similar with this Macy’s partnership, at least to start. Hopefully they do have a better opportunity to be more expansive with Macy’s if they’re given the proper floor space.

    I could see Playmates jumping in to claim some of that space for their turtles. Maybe it would give them an incentive to put out better product. I’d like to see a return of larger items like the sewer playsets. Stuff like you’d be able to get from TRU and department stores back in the 80s.

    Meanwhile in the rest of the world I'm loving TRU :p  the one in Kuwait was the best as it carried more US toy products, the ones here in Korea have very little American branded toys and what they do have is FREAKING EXPENSIVE

    So when I got Bebop & Rocksteady from my Neca preorder, the leg came pre-broken at the left hip joint - my first Neca breakage.

    I sent them an email on Aug 5th but havent even received a confirmation that theyre going to get back to me.

    Is this the correct email to send my help request to?: [email protected]

    Thats the correct address. I used that to report my Rat King skirt paint splitting issue per Randy on Twitter a while back. I did get a default bounce back response after a while, then another saying that they would check availability for a replacement. A third later saying that my request was in and would be notified when available and shipped from their warehouse. Whenever that will be...

    I doubt they'll be stocking anything NECA there, in the beginning anyway.

    Every time I order from NECA's online store, I order 2, sadly. On the bright side, that usually gives me an extra to hand off to someone else.
