NECA is winning SDCC again this year and it’s only day one. Lots of cool figures were revealed including a ton of new turtles. You can get the whole rundown from their site here.
It’s the summer of new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle figures. Playmates just revealed a new comic inspired Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Black and White Figure 4-Pack arriving at the end of the summer. The set, which will be a Walmart exclusive, features the four comic inspired Turtles released a few years back, just in black and white. The set will also include a reprint of TMNT #1, with a new cover by Kevin Eastman.
When I saw this figure in New York a couple of years ago, I knew I wanted it in my collection once it was finally released.
Plus, now that he is finally here, he can play the perfect advisory to my Onyx Sovereign Knight Batman. I like how Mezco takes the risk and comes up with versions of their comic book characters that are uniquely their own. I think this was one of the reasons I liked the look of this figure so much.

If you weren’t at Yestercades this past weekend for NECA’s fan event, you missed a good time. The event was well done in a nostalgic environment that would make any toy nerd happy. NECA had a few recent and upcoming releases on display, as well as a few new reveals. I was able to take a few photos but not as many as I would have liked. I was more focused on talking to the NECA gang and meeting some of the other NECA enthusiasts. Being that I’m socially awkward, I don’t think I did a good job in that department. It was nice to finally put a few faces with the names though. (more…)
