NECA's TMNT Party Van - What Does Your Heart Tell You?

by Jay Cochran
December 14, 2021
NECA in several interviews such as the one Randy Falk did back in October 2020 has suggested they would at some point be doing things like a Party Van vehicle for their Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Animated Series line. They have even suggested a full sewer lair playset is likely going to come.

Of course since that interview which was over a year ago now, we really haven't seen anything more materialize on that front. On top of that Super7 recently beat them to the punch by opening pre-orders for their own TMNT Ultimate Party Van which you can pre-order now at places like our sponsors EntertainmentEarth.com and BigBadToyStore.com. That one will only set you back between $450-$500.

So is NECA still planning on doing their own Party Van, which would be based more on the 80's cartoon series than the original Playmates toyline like Super7's, but still it would likely be fairly similar if they did one, and also likely expensive.

Well someone asked NECA on social media recently if they should wait for NECA's or go on and get Super7's. Likely a question plaguing more than one collector who may not have the money or space to buy two very large vehicles.

While NECA's response was somewhat cryptic and vague, simply responding by saying, "What does your heart tell you?"



I think its fairly safe to say they will be moving forward with one at some point. My guess is they will wait until next year to reveal it so it's not directly competing with the pre-orders on the Super7 one. Still that leaves the question for those only willing or able to buy one, which should they wait for???

My heart tells me wait for neca. Sealed super7 ultimates turtles sell for less than its original price on ebay because super7 has overproduced their turtles line. So if you decide to go super7 and resell in case you like necas better you will lose a whole lot of money doing so. Super7 reissues their turtle stuff way too fast. That's why you'll see super7 turtles at 40 bucks shipped at Amazon, Walmart etc. TONS of sellers that bought super7 ultimates are losing money selling them for less than what they cost originally. Itsoverproduction and way too fast reissues which hasbro legends tends to do as well.

The cartoon van has a lot of similarities as the playmates. Neca might look more like Playmates in the end. The S7 deviated from the original too much for my taste. Namely the colors and the van shape. That 70s VW wagon is my least fav iteration. I like that 80-90s, bold colored, box van shape. Makes me think there is a cool tv inside with a Nintendo and aux headphone outlets build into the walls XD My neighbor had one of those when I was a kid and it blew my mind. He was a dentist.Thats how it looks on the cartoon and the way NeCA have been nailing likeness Im anticipating buying the NECA no matter what the cost. Yerp!

Brian from Super7 said they had to wait on the Party Wagon because Playmates didn't want two vans competing with each other, and Playmates re-released the classic version. Unfortunately, that means we'll likely be waiting awhile for NECAs version. Glad to hear it's still coming though.

I'm still debating on the Super7 van. I know I'll want the NECA one. I'm only collecting select Super7 figures, but that of course includes the turtles themselves.

Then the Super7 van might be the way to go in terms of consistency. As much as I hate the price, if anyone saves up enough by late next year when this comes out, it can be affordable.

Mine tells me NECA will do one, they will not let Super7 take the cake on this one all by themselves lol. I think there's will be cheaper and let's see how it turns out. Hopefully much more like the original.

I like that suggestion!

Given S7 are doing a van, Neca should go straight for a sewer playset. I'd buy that
