    How many do you think they will make, they didn't really make that many Unicrons in the grand scheme of things compared to a retail toy.

    If Neca can make there Wagon slightly big enough to also fit S7 for half the price they can make out like gangbusters.

    You might be right. I'm really curious about how NECA will price theirs, though. I'm gonna guess at least $250. And the size will be pretty key.

    At this rate, I might just try to track down a Playmates wagon...I really don't even have the space for that one either, though...haha... Does anyone know how far off the S7 figures are from being able to fit in the Playmates wagon?

    I did get the reissue Party Wagon thinking it might fit the Neca turtles but they are just a little too big.

    A saw a review a while back where some guy stuffed the NECA turtles into the Playmates wagon…and it did look like a pretty tight fit. If it were, like, 10% larger, it might be just about right. Still, they probably look pretty good just hanging around outside of it…and you can’t beat the price (assuming you get it for MSRP).

    If Neca was smart that should be the game plan. Just make it big enough to fit S7 but still work for other Turtles of comparable Neca size, still be big for Playmates but still work.

    The thing about a hypothetical NECA van vs. this one, that keeps me coming back to this, is the "toy-based" aspect. The original Party Wagon was such an iconic TOY for me growing up, so fun in its toyishness, that most of my Party Wagon love is firmly rooted in the toy version and not the cartoon version. This being the definitive TOY-based PW means that, ridiculous price notwithstanding, I'll most likely end up biting the bullet for this.

    That’s what I’m grappling with as well! So who has the best deal? Super7 asks for payment upfront, BBTS has a $125 deposit requirement, and EE has killer shipping……

    I didn’t have the toy as a kid, but definitely wanted it. I’ve got the S7 versions of the turtle figures I did have, but my nostalgia leans toon pretty significantly. I’d probably prefer a toon van, but I do like this one. I’m not double-dipping though so will need to figure it out sight unseen from NECA unless this forces them to show something.

    BBTS for me. I can do $125 now but I don't want to put in $500+ including shipping and tax at Super7. Super7's payment plan is a nice offer but you pay 1/3 now, 1/3 a month from now, and then 1/3 a month after, so it's not spread out very much and there's also a 5% surcharge. BBTS will actually wind up being cheaper than going direct from Super7 b/c of that 5% surcharge and BBTS's $4 shipping can't be beat.

    So, uh, pizza hub caps. I know they're optional, but they are the dumbest things I've ever seen. Was there some version of the turtle van that had them? I hope it's not something new that Super7 thought would be cool. That would worry me.

    The roadkill mouser is cool, though. But now we need a roadkill Roadkill Rodney.

    BBTS is a big enough that they should hook up with another company and start doing payment plans.

    There's no precedent for them that I know of. Weirdly it looks like there's only two, so if you did want to use them you couldn't do them on all the wheels anyway.

    super7 offers a payment plan. However there’s like a $30 fee or something like that.

    If anyone is doing S7 payment plan can you say what the 4 payment amounts are?

    Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles ULTIMATES! Party Wagon Payment Plan

    Info is here and I swear this was changed since yesterday. It now says:

    I swear yesterday it said 1/3 of the total payment and then spread out 1 month apart from initial order; ie 1/3 on order date, 1/3 1 month from then, and then 1/3 a month later, for a total of two months between all 3 payments.

    As it reads now, if I ordered today I would be done with the payment plan December 29th. Not really all that much help and it's costing you 5% on $450.

    Same for me. It was easily one of my favorite vehicles as a kid. Played with it for endless hours. Even just being a casual nostalgia fan of TMNT I can’t imagine not getting this S7 one

    i actually purchased the Thundertank on the payment plan. Cost was $450 + $40 shipping + $22.50 payment plan fee for a total of $512.50. I thought I had paid a $30 fee, sorry I misspoke earlier. I didn’t have to pay tax for whatever reason.

    The first payment was $174.25. The next payment was $169.13. The final payment was $169.12. I made the first payment at preorder time, and then one payment per month for 2 months afterwards. But that was when S7 was using partial.ly for payment plans.

    Now they’re using Shop Pay Payments. And it’s split into 4 payments. But they’re due every two weeks. So it’s a bit different. The 4 payments would be around $128.13 for the party wagon, assuming no tax and even payments.

    If Playmates had any sense of intelligence they could upsize the Origins Party Wagon to fit their "Classics" figures and laugh at s7 all the way to the bank bcuz I'm sure they could pull it off for under $300 and put it on store shelves but I mean "Playmates" :rolleyes:
