To say the live action Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie is one of my all-time favorites is an understatement. By 1990 the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles were by far my favorite franchise and I was all about turtles at the time. I had a TMNT themed birthday party, nothing but turtle Christmas, and the movie was one of the few times I remember seeing my Dad in a movie theatre. But for whatever reason, I had a ton of cartoon based action figures but never bothered for the live action versions. Of course, that all changed a couple of years ago when I saw NECA was releasing a line of movie figures. Until recently, Playmates was the sole maker of TMNT figures. The only reason I think NECA (and others) got any sliver of the license is that fact that any TMNT figure they release is some sort of store or con exclusive. NECA always does their best to get things to as many people as possible. That said, some of these figures are harder to come by than others. What I have learned is patience is key.
Now is a good time to start checking GameStop’s website for their summer exclusives. Yesterday we were surprised to see an alternate NECA Pennywise. Today, the McFarlane Toys Stranger Things Ghostbuster set is up for pre-order. The set features the crew of four in their Ghostbuster Halloween costumes. It also looks to come with most of their accessories, including the video camera. (more…)
If you are still looking for NECA’s asweome Ultimate Pennywise, their Summer exclusive is now available at GameStop.
The difference between the two is this version has the exclusive bloody paint deco, an exclusive Pennywise head sculpt, an exclusive red I Heart Derry’ balloon, and Georgie’s severed arm.
They are currently available online for $34.99. As always with NECA, great price and totally worth it. (more…)
