So I'm very curious if it'd be worth ordering a Rat King and Vernon to see if this (I assume) future shipment of the set fixes the Rat King's crotch rot.
I know, I was tempted by that thought too.

Brickseek showed 4 of the Pinball Loot Crates @ my local Walmart last night so I went hunting. They were not in the collectibles aisle so I had an employee look them up on the their scanner. Turns out they were on a random back endcap with Super Shredder & some Batarangs. I was quite shocked since my Walmart never receives this stuff.

After some debate I think I'd like a third Pizza Monster. Emailed NECA CS this morning to see if they'd frown upon adding a third to next Friday's order. We'll see if they answer.

I've decided to put some items on ebay I've been on the fence about selling or not as I really want pizza monsters.

The Pizza monsters look cool, but it's not something I need to have, so I can easily pass on them.

I don't think I need Irma either, but depending on who/what she comes with, it might be worth an order.

Let us know what they say because I would really like a third one too.

NECA TMNT Cartoon Wave

I ordered 2 and my friend ordered 2 and I had my sister order 2 so we could each have the episode-accurate group of 3. I sent her the money via Paypal and she was like “I’m having them shipped to your house” and I was like $%@&#

They certainly should have upped the limit to 3. Since they’re obviously using the made-to-order model there is no reason to have any limit of any kind. It’s certainly going to be bullshit if they cancel my order for ordering 4 when they have a pic of a group of 4 on the product page.

Will do, if they respond.

My backup plan to get a third is to send next Friday's order to my nearby mother-in-law under a different account/payment/etc. Not ideal but the only way to be sure.

One of the nearby Walmarts is showing the pinball set in stock, but it's the one I don't really want to drive to.

Are the Pizza Monsters made-to-order or are they also coming to Target? I'm assuming they're coming to Target as well, but these preorders are just a first dibs offering.

I think they might be something Target passed on. The release model is unlike anything they’ve done with the Target-exclusive figures and the characters are the most obscure of the full line which would fit with Target not wanting to stock them.

^ That's what I've been thinking. If these sell decently well then they may lead to more obscure characters/items sold directly.

First review for the Turtles in disguise 4-pack:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lZ2Vk5wfPQ4

Gotta be honest... I'm not really a fan. They look a lot glossier, the head looks too big/wide and sits too high up.

I also dislike how the lines from the corners of the mouth seem to continue to the top of the nose (on some of the faces).
Huge plus (we already knew this but I guess now it's confirmed): they fixed the ankle articulation. They now have proper rockers.

Pretty sure I'm still getting them (since I wanted a second set of these figures anyway) but I definitely prefer the wave 1 Turtles. Just my opinion of course, I just prefer my Turtles with an angry, battle ready face.

That dude apparently doesn’t understand wrist hinges for sword wielders. Also looks like the elbows are still single joints. I think the wider head is more show accurate to everything post season one, and if it’s a little too wide I’ll still take it over just the odd head shape of the originals. I can’t decide if the head sits too high or the shell too low, I feel like we should see more shell. And I do dislike that glossy finish. It’s just weird because it’s so out of place in a line that’s very matte because of all the paint use. Hopefully it’s not as apparent when not under lights.

I still think they look like an improvement over the first release. The trench coats turned out nice too, which is almost a shame because I don’t know if I’ll use them. Now the new “grail” will be for season one/original intro accurate turtles that have the actual beaks.
