They've cast a kid as a cgi stand-in for John, and I've heard the plot has him being killed.. I guess we'll see in November?

When T2 was announced, I'm fairly certain I drove all my friends nuts talking about it. I remember I even took a magazine into the barber shop that had a picture of Arnie and I had them cut my hair to match.

So I get to go pick up my TMNT '90 Leo and Don on Wednesday, but it looks like these are coming to the general public in the form of two-packs. They looked to be confirmed some time back in a store (GameStop?) computer. A blurry image seems to indicate Mikey will be packed with a Foot Soldier, so I'm guessing Leo will get Shredder, Don, Krang and Ralph will get Foot Soldier #2.

From the original script. There were a pair of them working with the government. Presumably they were still in when NECA started working on the figures. They're saying "fuck it" and releasing it anyway. Won't lie, I may end up with it.

Behind a camera watching you!
Rumspringa - Amish spring break before joining the community as an adult.

The Prediter culture is strictly religious, with everything we see in the movies being forbidden or limited until their vacation where they are allowed to go batshit crazy on anyone who isn't their race. That badass from the first movie was an accountant!!!

This is why we don't want exploratory prequels to these types of movies. No one wants to hear about the klingon janitor's epic quest to clean the toilets (Because let's face it, in Star Trek we rarely see non military klingons

:D

Yaphet Kotto, bitch!


Definitely gonna need to see close-ups of the new Curry heads before I commit. Bad enough I have to buy two more '17 Pennywises (Pennywisen? Pennywisae?) this year.


NECA going full circle, taking 2010 back to 1994.

NECA's rep in the are continues to stoke my baby-punching rage with their inability to do their fucking job. Nothing new sighted after Scorpion Alien/Apone wave.

NECA's SDCC exclusives:




I suspect the TMNT stuff will see a mass release in some form, but John as an exclusive is kind of bullshit.

I think Newt got two-packed with Ripley. John kind of needs all that shit. He's not worth $30 without the enduro, and that's the accessory most likely to get dropped for a mass-market release.

If they kept the bike with him, I could possibly see him being released on cards in stores....but there's no chance they'll keep all that stuff with him for such a release...it negates the exclusivity. I'm not saying that's right or good, that's just how NECA plays the game. I'm wondering what the hell they're doing with that jacket, it needs the camo!!! Is the difficulty of doing so holding them back? Surely they've done just as complicated, if not more-so, things on other figures.

I just remembered (duh) the camo on the Colonial Marine figures....which is probably even more complicated since it was a custom pattern. JC's jacket should be a piece of cake.
