    Maybe Bandai doesn't know how to deal with toylines that aren't billion dollar megahits. They usually do Dragonball Z, Ben 10 and Power Rangers, all insanely popular shows.

    Just got word from my didtributor due to demand Playmates has increased the case size from 8 classics to 12, so 3 sets will now ship in each case.

    As long as they sell that should mean great things for the classics

    I got that notice this morning as well. Good news indeed, as far as sales go!

    TMNT may have one less property other than Thundercats to compete against

    I assume he's talking about GI Joe Retaliation, since that movie got pushed to 2013.

    Yeah TMNT will pretty much go unchallenged this fall, Avengers will be well past the prime selling point and Dark Knight/MIB3 will have run its course. If Thundercats does get canned or removed from retail we basically have Clone Wars, the new TF video game figures, and TMNT taking up a lot of the store shelving

    I got the email today about the change in case size and I was able to change my order to a case of just the four turtles.

    I so hope these are a success and we get more series

    Me too, I really want to see Shredder, Krang, Casey Jones, Splinter, April, and some others in this form with this retro packaging.

    The case ratio's are really well done for both the Retro and the new 2012 line, in the 2012 line they are undershipping April, Shredder, Splinter, and Krang so there should not be too much pegwarming outside of the various 4 Turtles.

    California seems to be first to get the shipments, they are all over eBay from there. We should get them by August all over.

    I found most everything from the new show today in southern Indiana. Most Targets have them in stock but won't get them out until they do a reset "later this month".

    I bought the whole cartoon wave (4 Turtles, April, Splinter, Foot Soldier, Shredder, and Kraang) in NC on Friday at a Toys R Us. Also saw the van, two of the motorcycles w/ figures, and the smaller motorcycle. I really like most of them, but Splinter is a bit weak. Part of that is that he doesn't come with anything except his staff (although the package says he comes with a "ninja arsenal" but another part is that I really don't care for the design of the figure. The design looks better in the animation stills.

    Classics will hit next month, they are selling really well to all forms of retail from what i hear privately. If that continues once they are on the shelf then I hope Playmates moves forward with them quickly!

    I have pre-sold out of 3 cases worth (that is 9 sets of the 4 Turtles) to my customers already which has never happened before

    I thought they were only going to be TRU exclusives?

    I just wanna get to KRANG and the TECHNODROME. I expect that to be a statue that's around 20" tall and totally cartoon accurate

    Target. They were apparently on the floor by mistake. I checked a few more stores that showed the DCPI as in-stock and they wouldn't get them from the back, saying they were being held until a reset later this month.

    The classic versions do a solid job, but I'm kind of ready for something on a much smaller scale. These little Nickelodeon versions are stealing the show for me. Now, no one's ever going to top Neca's look but these have alot more personality going for them. Out of the gate, they already have some characters that Neca never got to (why can't they ever finish what they start?). Though I have to say that Shredder and the Foot Soldier aren't as strong stylistically. Splinter needs a repaint. It would be neat to have a more complete roster of enemies and allies. I have a feeling this is going to be a big hit for awhile.
    Your support means more research for the Myostatin-challenged.

    I checked our Target this weekend. According to them, they have them in stock, but they weren't allowed to sell them yet because (I'm summing up what was said): they have an area to display and they have a 'release date' marked on the boxes, the release date is supposed to be today. I will be checking both of my TRU and Target stores today. I was hoping for a nice month or more buffer between TMNT and JoeCon and SDCC; my credit card bill is going to be HUGE for July!

    Just checked both TRU and Target in my area. I almost wanted to track down the manager at Target that told me they would be out Monday to be "that" guy, lol.

    My brother got me a case today from Target, no problems whatsoever getting the whole thing. I kept what I wanted and put the rest up for a few cents above cost in my online store. The case does say do not put out on the shelf till 7/29/2012 so keep that in mind and its best to not talk to management to get them

    Can't wait to open up my set when I get home!
