"Plans are being made. We have 4 killer exclusives planned and we should still be able to get them out there for everyone."

"It's going to be completely different this year since there's no actual event.  We will talk specifics when we are ready and things are finalized."

"Not that soon.  We typically don't talk about our exclusives until end of May and first week of June."

It's been tradition to reveal our SDCC exclusive on this day.  However 2020 is anything but traditional.  The exclusive news has to wait a little longer but trust me  it's well worth the wait.

Q: Aw man. Was hoping for the SDCC reveal...

A: Too soon. Saving those reveals until they are available to purchase.






Quote
Q: This time last year we would have already preordered the SDCC2019
exclusives! I’m assuming they’ll sell exclusIves that would have been at SDCC2020 on the actual days the show was scheduled. So maybe late July?


A: Yes that’s correct but since there is no sdcc this year relase is time w I store and online availability which we are hoping is mid July. Stay tuned


Quote
Q: When are we getting the SDCC exclusive news??

A: Next month as they go on sale

Q: How is your online SDCC stuff going to work? I've been lucky enough to go to SDCC each year and your booth is always the first thing I do on Preview Night. Are you just going to drop a date and time and then it's a free for all to preorder?

A: Some at Walmart some at target and also online. Plenty of opportunities this year and we will share all details closer to the release

As a big time NECA TMNT 90s Movie guy....I've gotten them at the booth the last few years, I'm kind of disappointed with these. They look great, love the idea and packaging, but they don't fit in well with the previous ones.

That Predator is great tho! Always appreciate good packaging.

Yea I'm really nervous about Tokka and Rahzar as well as Super Shredder. Normally I've been fine getting everything at SDCC, but this year needing to get them online has been a nightmare. I don't want to put the blame on NECA, but I have seen other companies do Target and Walmart stuff and it hasn't been as bad.

Did like how the Target system did limit of 1 and Target shipping would have run cheaper than Neca. Having the TMNT bundle in an add-to-cart circle as a reminder, not like.  The SDCC Predator bot-cancelling sale was as frustrating as a Marvel booth giveaway.

I don't want to put the blame on NECA, but I have seen other companies do Target and Walmart stuff and it hasn't been as bad.

Side note, according to an SDCC panel, Walmart Collector store will ramp up in store in October.

Neca's post on IG about changes.

from IG necaofficial In case you missed our story from yesterday, we want to reiterate that we hear you. We have read your feedback and criticism.

It’s become very obvious that recently a number of resellers are using sophisticated bots to capture our exclusives with the intent of selling them. We are in the process of installing features to slow down and stop the bots including limiting shipments to the same address, putting up CAPTCHA systems, along with other remedies. These features may not be immediate, but we are looking to implement them in the near future.

If you can’t get them now, please be aware that we are placing additional orders for popular items such as Casey Jones & Disguised Raphael and Bebop & Rocksteady. Additionally, we have a nice surprise for you in the coming weeks with an online exclusive that fans will be able to get 1 of.

Maybe upgrades in time for NYCC Mutagen Tour dates in October?

Yea I'm really nervous about Tokka and Rahzar as well as Super Shredder.

The news from IG. Hoping not to encounter  any of the cancellation problems others had with the SDCC sale. And I remember the shippong price for Predator was around $20.  No word yet on price or if they're made-to-order.

I use to think a preorder on Target we a safe bet to accomplish.   I really no confidence in getting anything preordered on Target online until they resolve the bots issue.

19 minute mark mentioned the SDCC sale and how it's hard to cancel big box preorders.

More T&R info at 21:39 (quantity set by how many preorders come in). 

Not going to Retail, only direct from Neca!

The $70 mentioned must be with the shipping price?

Update: $70 + shipping

Yea I'm really nervous about Tokka and Rahzar as well as Super Shredder. Normally I've been fine getting everything at SDCC, but this year needing to get them online has been a nightmare. I don't want to put the blame on NECA, but I have seen other companies do Target and Walmart stuff and it hasn't been as bad.

For any future sales, like SDCC and Shredder

"Pro tip once it’s in your cart go to thenecastore.com/checkout to bypass the non working checkout button"


Shredder btw kept coming back into stock. I was able to get one after someone posted they were back up.

Tip #2 So always keep trying until NECA posts an item has sold out.

Oh that is a good tip! Yea the freezing up sucked. I switched to my phone and got it instantly. Glad it came back in stock though for all the others. They seem to be able to cancel a lot of duplicate orders quickly which is great.

The news about the tomorrow's 1-week neca store preorder window for the Target TMNT Metalhead may be a new wrinkle in the bot war.  Looks like the other item is a Casey Jones prop replica mask, which can also be preordered at BBTS for $30.

I saw on reddit about a promo code for $5 in another email about flat rate shipping, but I didn't get it.

Otherwise, hoping to find an SDCC Predator at Walmart.  My friend's son got his and said it's cool!

Edit: Casey is the mask, not the set.

Edit 2:  The copy of email from reddit for those who got Super Shredder get the $5 coupon. Maybe only for those who paid for UPS or over $20 for shipping?

I received the email with the $5 coupon. And my shipping was $22.99 so you may be right about that. It was a tough purchase....$22.99 for shipping and $29.99 for the figure.
