    The Thundertank is the size of a Tesla. So hopefully less than $250.

    Competition should result in beneficial options for the fans/consumers...

    {[Pre-Order] Underground Arsenal 1/12 Turtle Shell 01 Turtle Van Comic Version}
    Depending how the paint comes out for this option, I'm not certain if the price of the S7 or Neca options would justify their purchase over this one in my eyes, especially when it's likely they'll be more expensive and possibly hover around twice as much.

    I'm figuring the Turtle Van will be at least $400. Thunder Tank is really huge compared to the Van I think, so less big giant parts and less molds, but prices and everything else has gone way up since the Tank went up. So I'm still banking on it costing a good bit.

    They probably want to get the Party Wagon sold before all the material price indexes go up again next year. The toy industry is becoming a race against time.

    If your saying the cheapest turtle van is gonna be in the $250 range, my turtles are stuck walking. No way I am gonna drop that much for essentially a diorama piece. I mean I don't actually "play" with toys so the "buy it to sit on a shelf and look pretty option" needs to have a top end budget somewhere.

    I think there’s a good chance that the NECA turtle van will be under $250. Just wait for that one.

    But yeah, the S7 party wagon is going to be $350-$450.

    I brought the Neca 60's Batmobile and it looks good but the Neca Delorean was garbage, the Jada and Playmobil is waaay better.

    Just an FYI, if you don’t have the Target circle app, download it if you’re interested in any of the recently released NECA 2-packs. $20 bucks off anything $49.99 or above!

    I got to use my discount on baby stuff today, but hopefully you guys can get some cool figures lol.

    No matter the price of what the Neca van will be if you don't get that pre-order in it's gonna be a wrap unless you wanna pay close to $500+ on Ebay market.

    Worst part about most of the toy versions is the flat front. It looks much better with the...what is that? A spare tire?
    I also much prefer "Turtle Van" over "Party Wagon". Did they ever even call it the "Party Wagon" in the cartoons or comics?

    This target got a restock of these, or someone returned them. Any need for them?

    I like S7 Turtles. I'm not going to lie though, I've not seen anything that makes me think that their vehicles will be anywhere near the quality to be worth the $500+ they're asking for them. They're not exactly known for their high quality finish & materials.

    Their Thundertank looks really underwhelming to me. Nothing in the back is even connected.

    NECA came through. Zero connections to the characters but they look cool and goofy as heck.
