Just in is news of the NECA TMNT Pizza Monster and More that are going up for preorder on NECA's Website.

Based on the classic 1980s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cartoon series! After being accidentally exposed to radioactive ooze, four ordinary household pets are transformed into a band of wisecracking, pizza-loving, villain-dicing adolescent reptiles! Whether it's facing fierce enemies or saving humanity from near extinction, with the guidance of their Sensei, these Heroes in a Half Shell are always ready for straight outta the sewer action!

The Pizza Monsters come from Dimension X, and are part of a plot to defeat the Turtles which ultimately fails and requires both sides to team up to defeat the alien threat. This Ultimate Pizza Monster towers over the Turtles at 9" tall, and includes its juvenile Pizza Monster form, pizza in box, and a remote control device. Comes in collector-friendly

Window box packaging.

Also up for pre-order are Rat King & Vernon 2 pack and Triceraton Infantryman & Roadkill Rodney 3 Pack. You have between 4/9 to 4/18 to pre-order these. And there will be new pre-orders next Friday.

these guys were season 7 characters,

Ah that makes sense why I never saw Antrax in the show, and I guess Scumbug, I actually know both characters, I was familiar with the figures and owned Scumbug, Always wanted Antrax, I remember Scumbug from the Archie Imprint comics as well. I remember as a kid I actually only ever watched the Cartoon from seasons 1-3 and bits of 4, I had long moved on by the time season 7 came.

Thanks for the details on these two guys and their appearances in the show ?

Antrax and Scumbug! man those are great, I honestly don't remember Antrax in the Cartoon though, maybe I was long checked out by then, must have been a season near the end.

I am trying hard but I can't remember those, I guess I'm fake fan after all, but they still look great.

No, you guys aren't fake fans, and though you MAY have"checked out by then" since these guys were season 7 characters, that still isn't necessarily to blame for not knowing these two.No, the real reason you've never heard of them is because these guys are one-shot cameo characters only SLIGHTLY less obscure than . . . well, than Ace Duck. *LOL, sigh*

"Night of the Rogues" was the 6th episode of season 7, wherein Shredder - totally done with being humiliated on the daily by the TMNT - rebuilds Chrome Dome, and then hires several of the Turtles' worst enemies to work together to defeat the Fab Four. He recruits Rat King, Leatherhead, Slash, Tempestra (herself a fairly little-know character, a videogame brought to life, has a thing for Leonardo, only in one prior episode, never had an action figure) . . . and two insectoid mutants, Antrax(mutant ant,supposedly Krang's executioner from Dimension X, originated in the toyline, but his figure wasn't all that well known) and Scumbug(mutant . . . roach? with NO backstory, also originated in the toyline, was a fairly popular figure IIRC).

And this, in and of itself, is the really funny part: both characters were introduced as if they were old enemies of the Green Machine. Shredder's like "So, you know Krang's executioner, Antrax, right?" and Scumbug is "Hey, and you couldn't forget me, could ya?!" And no, he's right, theycouldn't forget him, 'cuz they NEVER MET HIM IN THE FIRST PLACE! Neither character had EVER appeared in the show before! *LMAO* They were apparently planned to appear in earlier seasons, but those stories simply NEVER got produced!

Sssoooo . . . yeah. No one can blame you for forgetting these guys, because . . . well, they BARELY had an appearance in the series. They came late to the toyline, they came even later to the show, they had zero backstory or explanation, they were part of an ensemble episode, they were outshined by MULTIPLE more popular and well-known villains . . . they were basically a throw-away cameo to tie the show to the toys.

But here's the thing: NECA has made Rat King, Leatherhead, and Slash. We've seen Chrome Dome, so we know he's on the way. And now Scumbug and Antrax, who ONLY appear in this ONE episode of the cartoon. Something tells me that NECA is rounding out the "Night of the Rogues" lineup, which means we should see a Tempestra figure ANY DAY NOW!! *LOL*

Man NECA is reallly pumping those turtle figures out. It feels like every other week they have a new one announced or coming out. They are all pretty awesome. I had alot of the original ones growing up but I couldnt keep up with the new ones these days. Fun to watch what new stuff they come up with tho.

Antrax and Scumbag are cool and all but dang....really wanted another chance at Casey Jones?

I suppose that's where my disconnect is: the toys weren't actually based on the cartoon. Like, almost AT ALL. That's why the Super7 TMNT figure line exists, it's all about toy nostalgia, so I'd absolutely expect Ace to appear in that series. The NECA one is about CARTOON nostalgia, however, and I just personally can't compute having nostalgia for the cartoon version when he barely exists. *LOL*

But obviously, other people DO compute that,there is crossover nostalgia between the two, so NECA knows best in this case.

In any case, I'm glad you're getting a character you have a deep connection to!

I think its more about nostalgia for the cartoon overall which my guess has wider appeal than the toys themselves. Like for me I never collected TMNT toys as a kid, but I watched the cartoon all the time. The cartoon was my #1 exposure for TMNT. There are characters from the cartoon much higher up on my wish list than Ace Duck and if it wasn't for the fact NECA is making it pretty easy to get this set I would probably not sweat it if I didnt find it at Target. Still he is a cool looking character so I don't mind adding him.

Fair enough. For what it's worth, though, I wasn't actually "calling you out" so much as just saying I'm cool with anyone they make. Technically, I DON'T disagree with you, there ARE characters (Bug Man, Titanus) I want to see done before others (the Fifth Turtle).

And that's fair, I'm not surprised most fans aren't interested in the TMNT's version of Wesley Crusher. *LMAO*

I will say, I will be SHOCKED if we see any Red Sky figures . . . but hey, it's NECA, just look at their Predator line, ANYTHING'S possible!
