FYI - for those still on the fence, Loot Crate is suggesting these may sell out before the ordering window expires, so they're either bluffing to drum up more sales or there is a limit on how many orders they'll accept.

I have been working a ton of overtime and I am seriously debating buying a second just for a second Scrag.

It appears as thought the movie Loot Crate (the one with Danny) has sold out. You can still get it if you purchase all four with the bonus figure, but the single loot crate is now greyed out.

In that case, folks still on the fence for the other crates may want to put in an order in case the rest sell out too.

Wow, you're not wrong. I wanted a Danny (Dan?) figure but was so put off by having to buy a crate (I hate the whole idea of loot crate) that I kept putting off my decision to get one. Now I don't have to worry about it anymore.
Very disappointed in NECA for pulling this stunt.

With the stimulus hitting a lot of bank accounts today, I expect the remaining crates will sell out pretty quick.

Well I went ahead and ordered a 2nd set. Hopefully I can recoup some of my cost on the extras I don't want.

What stunt? Offering a way to get more figures out there? The price is fine too, $25 figure, $15-$20 shirt, $5 in other randomness. And if you only want the figure, just sell the rest of the stuff.

Decided to finally bite on the Armaggon crate last night. He's really the only one I needed.

Yep, I had no problem selling the Turtles in Time shirt for $30. A little extra work, but I easily recouped my costs for the stuff in the Crates I wanted to keep.

i'll be shocked if you get stuck with any of them. $50 a figure is a given, but if you wanted i wouldn't be surprised if $100 was even remotely tough on you to pay for both subscriptions and keep the extra Scrag.

It's not a stunt. They likely put aside a set amount for single releases and a set amount for bundles. The amount set aside for bundles is likely proportionate the amount of Scrag figures they plan to produce. Can't sell a bundle if all the Danny's sell out.

I think he was talking about the whole concept of Lootcrates. Rather than sell us a $30 figure outright, we're asked to buy a box of junk for $50.

I had a Marvel Loot Crate a few years ago that was definitely all junk, but I've been really happy with the TMNT ones so far. I've liked most of the shirts, and the extra accessories like the Turtles in Time TV and cartoon wanted posters have been nice.
