2022 Power-Con NECA Panel Report - TMNT, Gargoyles And More

by Jay Cochran
August 07, 2022
NECA yesterday held their first ever panel at Power-Con. A lot of what was shown and said was just a reiteration of what they had on hand a few weeks ago during SDCC. However they did have a few pieces of additional information to share about upcoming products for Gargoyles, TMNT and more. Thanks to Rick's Nerd Life, here is a breakdown of what was said during the panel.

For Gargoyles they confirmed that Demona's folded wings will be included with Xanatos.

For their recently announced Dinosaurs Earl Sinclair figure they showed an alternate head that will be included with the figure.

For the TMNT Animated series line they confirmed a new April O' Neil figure was coming that will feature a new head, retooled body and tons of accessories. There were also indications that we might see new versions of Casey Jones and Shredder as well, but nothing specific or confirmed on those two.

No word yet on how those Animated Series Baby Turtles figures shown at SDCC will be released.

Because of the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem movie coming in 2023, you can expect Target to start really ramming up their TMNT offerings next year which will include NECA stuff. That's not saying NECA themselves are doing product for the movie but that Target will be carrying TMNT more in general which will include the NECA Cartoon Dio Playset.

In regards to the three Animated Series TMNT Sewer Lair Dio's they showed at SDCC, the first one which will be the Living Room playset should go up for pre-order next month (September), and it will be a pre-order not a crowd-source thing. Still no word on pricing for those as of yet. They did show how it connects to the Street Dio (see below) and confirmed that the tunnel ports will open up so you can view into the lair from the sides.

During the panel Randy Falk said that the Archie line will continue so long as there is support and that they are testing the waters on how much demand there is with the Mutanimals that had been previously announced and shown. Randy would also like to do Wrestling Turtles.

As mentioned at SDCC, The IDW Last Ronin stuff has become it's own subline that they plan to go deep on which will include spinoffs, possibly referring to the recent prequel series that was announced by IDW.

When asked about the possibility of NECA doing a Technodrome, which more specifically I believe this is in regards to the Technodrome dio playsets they have shown on display at previous cons, this is something NECA wants to do but needs to get the Sewer sets our first and see how they do.

No plans to release the Dark Turtle figure outside of the LootCrate offerings. As to whether we will see NECA release anymore TMNT figures through LootCrate, that remains unknown at this time. While nothing was specifically said, Rick's impression was that if it was up to Randy, they would not.

Do we have any details about the movie ??

Roadpigmaster - 2022-08-09 @ 3:49 pm

Neca cartoon Diorama will be available at Target ?? Oh yeah, I have to get one of those... I also want that cartoon Tokka and Razza set coming to Target ???

I could be wrong, but were Tokka and Rahzar ever even available in the US during Haulathon?

Despite being the primary tool for marketing Haulathon, it never popped up on the Target site and never seemed to get a wide release in stores. It seemed like the only way to get it in the US was to use the costumes site intended for international folks only, but those of us who played by the rules are the chumps that missed out.

Lootcrates are fun. Not aure why Randy wouldnt do it. Perhaps just getting hard to do. I noticed the shirts are getting cheaper in quality

According to Rick's Nerd Life, Randy Falk from NECA mentioned during this past weekends Power-Con that the TMNT Animated Series Tokka And Rahzar 2-Pack along with Usagi Yojimbo should be made available on the Target website during their 2022 Fall Geek-Out Collector Event.While the Usagi figure was made available previously on the NECAStore website, the TMNT Animated Series Tokka And Rahzar 2-Pack was only briefly made available during the NECA Haul-A-Thon event on the Hail-A-Thon website where most people failed to be able to obtain one.

The specific dates for this Fall's Geek-Out event have yet to be announced but generally it takes place during the month of September. When more details become available we will be sure to let you know.
