The t-shirt looks good...???
This is soooooo tempting...I know years down the line that SHINY version is going to be worth it. It may not seem like much of an extra now but it really pops in person I bet. I hope I can find it!!! Walmarts are so far from me
1 hour ago, JayC said:Last month we told you how a strange boxset showed up on Walmart's website that was labeled Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (Cartoon) Crate Stern Pinball Appearance Crate. While there were know details given about this set, we could see by the images on the packaging that it would be including some kind of NECA Shredder figure.It was really unclear what the connection between NECA and Stern Pinball was or why they would be doing a boxset together. I even noticed when Stern themselves posted an image and a link on their Facebook page to the Walmart listing, the people on there seemed really confused about what that had to do with Pinball.So we are still waiting on official word from NECA on this set. When they were asked about it all they said was more details would be coming soon. However those wondering what the connection between Stern and NECA is for TMNT, well I did some checking and it turns out the two companies worked together back in September of last year for a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Stern Heads-Up Pinball Invitational. If you didn't know, Stern makes a TMNT themed Pinball machine. NECA was one of the sponsors for this event and all the players got free NECA Turtles In Time action figures. You can watch the event here if your interested in that type of thing. So after that I guess the two companies got together and put this boxset together which I am assuming will be released eventually as a Walmart exclusive. As for the Shredder figure included in the set. From what I can tell it looks like it's going to be a repaint of the NECA Animated Series Shredder figure. The grey on that figure's chest and tunic are now purple. Looks like maybe some purple highlights have been added on the legs as well, but I am not sure. I blew up the image of the figure as best I could from the package image from Walmart. You can check it out below in our GALLERY.Hopefully NECA will get around to releasing official details like price and better images for this set soon. And No I don't think a TMNT Pinball machine will be included :).
UPDATE: NECA let us know this set should be out in April. More details to come soon.
In my opinion the new deco looks so much better. I think the white/yellowish lines on the previous release makes it look cartoony kind of like the video game deco figures.
I don't have the original and have been looking for him since my Walmarts don't carry NECA.....now I'm torn, don't know which I like better.
I like it a lot more than the original, but I'm not going to double dip on this one.
After seeing it side by side with the original, Im definitely glad I have the original. This would be a good alternative if I couldnt find the original tho. I like it but seeing it in normal lighting shows how much its less of than the first one. It is cool to have a darker basic version of him tho and he would be very suitable for a less animated, more realistic look for him.
