Hmmmmmm . . . .?
I dunno about anyone else of course, but I've actually been ASTONISHED at the speed with which NECA has fulfilled all my TMNT online orders to date (with the exceptions of the second-run Vernon/Rat King, and not counting the pre-orders like Pizza Monster and Mutagen Man/Ace and Antrax/Scumbug, of course). Muckman, Mondo, the Punk Frogs, Chrome Dome, all of them got here really quick, and in Chrome Dome and the Frogs case, they were here literally a week (if not LESS) after the order processed! I couldn't believe it!
THAT SAID . . . I know nothing about their OTHER toy lines or the shipping times they're facing. Moreover, if you're ordering from BBTS and not from NECA directly, I would imagine retail website orders get processed AFTER direct-from-manufacturer orders. Then again, I have no actual insight on this (I DO know some old NECA Ambassadors and a Target manager, but from how they tell it, THEY actually get everything FIRST, so . . . . ????), so I fully acknowledge that this is speculation.
As for this SPECIFIC forum topic . . . Loot Crate shipping, on the other hand, has been downright BAFFLING. Like, delays due to overseas shipping, I get. But I got my notification for my Danny shipment on September 13. Then My shipment just . . . VANISHED for two weeks because FedEx LOST IT IN THEIR OWN DAMN WAREHOUSE. And then it's taken now nearly ANOTHER TWO WEEKS to bounce around the country (including multiple cities on opposite sides of MY OWN STATE) . . . and the package STILL. ISN'T. HERE. YET!!!
I want to tear my hair out. Actually, I want to tear SOMEONE ELSE'S hair out in retribution. Yes, I know COVID has slowed things down, and I'm totally cool with that, but I'm watching the tracking in real time, and this isn't COVID, this is UTTERLY NONSENSICAL STUPIDITY. Seriously, WTELF, FedEx??
So . . . yeah. Ocean cargo delays, sure. But honestly, the bigger bottleneck is right here domestically. *SMDH* Crate #2 delayed 'til December? Hell, I'm hardly expecting the FIRST ONE to be here before Christmas!!
Ugh i hate that they actually sold out. I couldnt get these at the time. Everything neca is getting heavily delayed. everything on bbts that was supposed to arrive in july is still not available.
Loot Crate this evening sent out word that the NECA TMNT Loot Crate Exclusive Arcade Crate #2 Armaggon figure which was originally supposed to ship out to those who pre-ordered it earlier this year in September was now delayed until December.The reason given for the delay is due to ongoing issues with COVID-19 which has caused global shipping routes to become jammed. This in turn has caused transit times to be affected by major port delays.
It's not known how this delay will effect the shipping dates of Crates 3 (Mutant Shredder) and 4 (Donatello the Dark Turtle) which originally were going to ship in October and November. Most likely they will be delayed as well.
Just got my notification that my Danny crate shipped. (It was the only one I got.) Unless they finally release a Tatsu, I think I'm done with the NECA Turtles. Don't really need the Saki/Yoshi set and still not sure if I wanna bother with Keno.
The Danny figure is spot on-neca did a great job.
Would love to get crate 4- looks like an interesting mash up. Already sold out though right? Hope they become available again.
This is the one I am most looking forward to getting.
NECA and Lootcrate have released a full look at their Crate 4 TMNT Animated Series Donatello the Dark Turtle which is supposed to ship to folks in November. The figure has an interchangeable head/mouth which is compatible with NECA's Turtles in Disguise boxset figures. The figure also has a wired cape and turtle smoke bomb accessory.The pre-orders for this crate along with the other 3 TMNT crates offered this year (Crate 1 TMNT Movie Danny Pennington, Crate 2 TMNT Video Game Armaggon, and Create 3 TMNT Mirage Comics Mutant Shredder) sold out when they were originally listed earlier this year. The first Crate with Danny Pennington is slated to start shipping any day now.
NECA and Lootcrate have released a full look at their Crate 3 Mirage comic books themed Mutant Shredder figure. This is one of four TMNT Themed crates with NECA figures they are doing. They also announced that for those who pre-ordered these (now sold out) crates earlier this year, the first one which features a TMNT Movie Danny Pennington will start shipping out this week. The second figure which is of a video game Armaggon is on track with it's original ship date of late September. Mutant Shredder is supposed to ship in October and the the cartoon based fourth figure of Donatello the Dark Turtle is expected to ship in November.

Hmm.....wonder what that crate 4 will look like. Donny is my fav turtle. And that Danny P figure looks spot on to me.
Not my thing, but yeah, when it comes to deco and sculpt Neca is top of the line.
