    This is what I don't get; they clearance out the 4" figures "to make room", meanwhile the enormous Mezco Mumm-ra's take up 10 times more space, LOL. They don't sell, either. They initial sold the first 4 they got in. I don't think they ever sold another one since then.

    Not to mention all the Thundertanks. They have about a dozen of them. If I ran a store, the 4" figures wouldn't get clearanced until all the big stuff is gone first. They are the least of your worries.

    The Thundercats 4" got clearanced first because of how bad the case ratio was and what was on the shelf district/region wide. There was no moving the Mummy Mumm-Ra and the Lion-O/Tygra 4"

    Its about how much money you are going to lose, the "cost" to retail of the 4" is negligible. Meaning it can be lost, the vehicles and bigger items (Armor of Omens, Tower of Omens) are going to sting more with their loss.

    If you ran a store and did not clearance the 4" you would be looking at a situation where you make no money vs making a tiny bit of money. You are going to lose either way, so at least put a band aid on it instead of let it hemorrhage

    The Mezco items don't get clearanced because that is a different contract with a different vendor, its apples and oranges. Stores can keep that on the shelf longer because its a niche item that usually holds its value instead of decreasing. You don't really see the Mezco Mumm-Ra going for 1/4 of its price on eBay and in speciality shops. The 200x MYP Roto's were the same type of deal, I can still get $50-100 for each one if I wanted even though everything else in the MYP line has flatlined.

    I went over the Shredder and some Foot Soldiers in the 'ol blog! Shredder ain't bad, but I am loving those Foot Soldiers! Something about how simple they are, I think.

    Saw the sound effects at walmart today. I do think the basic design is nice but I will still be going for the Classics, planning on getting those some MOTUC, and combined with my Thundercats modern/classics and DC classics will be finishing up my collection, especially the openers.

    If they ever make a new Classics Krang in his big goofy body in scale with the rest of the line I will do cartwheels of joy!
    It is spelled "Crita", not "Critta". Misspell her name and Crita will knock the "T" out of you!

    Also...get her into the line!

    I can't find a Donatello with properly painted eyes to complete my set. This is damn frustrating

    The stores don't seem to be selling out of them so much as they seem to be not getting frequent shipments.

    Sucks to be you (j/k), I have had 3 Donatello's in the past 2 weeks with good eyes , I think the newer shipments from what I am seeing are pretty good so I think the eye issue seriously is a first run problem that was corrected. So just wait a bit longer and you will probably find one before September that is good

    The stores don't seem to be selling out of them so much as they seem to be not getting frequent shipments.
    That is the same thing in the end, if you sell out of all the product you received them its sold out. Playmates is shipping as fast as they can. Each case has 3 sets, most stores are getting a minimum of 2 cases so that is 6 full sets. Do you want a Thundercats sized shipment that could tank the line or one that is based on supply/demand

    I begun the surgery on the chained weapons, I have the technology, I can make them better, faster, stronger, I'm jus waiting for one mre part to come in the mail, then I will paint em and assemble them, though again, I lost one of mikey's chuks. If I can't find it, I'll probably buy a spare mikey and give him the prototype paint detailing, them rob him of a chuk.

    The thing is there's no trace of them. My Walmart finally got TMNT in and they don't even have that cardboard promotional thing. Makes me wonder if they ever even got any in. It was only dumb luck that I found the ones I found.

    I like small lines, but I'm really starting to regret that the Bandai line is dead. I really like the line and the new cartoon.

    Maybe TRU will get them in Friday morning. Then again, they probably jacked the price up on them

    I don't know, I SWEAR there's a dimensional gate in my house, if I drop something on the floor it's GONE! I tear the place up even places it wouldn't be and the thing is gone forever.

    They are a slow trickle, I honestly think they were caught by demand which is why they increased the cases from 2 sets to 3 sets in each one. But I think that severely cut down the amount sent out to retail to launch.

    Maybe TRU will get them in Friday morning. Then again, they probably jacked the price up on them
    Our TRU got 1 case this morning, so if you can figure out when yours gets deliveries you can probably find one. They were still $16.99 though so that is in line with most other stores

    They get sent to the dimension next to the dimension that has the "other sock to a pair dimension".

    Found an incomplete set, missing Raphael, this morning at my local TRU. They are really nice.

    Leonardo has got to be my favorite of the four so far! Fantastic figure and accessories. So much fun to mess with! Reviewed 'em here!

    I found a Donatello with perfect eyes at TRU. He looks great.

    Set complete

    Yeah. But there is one "catch"; I know when shipment day is at TRU.

    If this was a Target or a Walmart, I wouldn't have a clue

    Yup that is how it works a lot of the time, TRU is easiest to get in on because Walmart is open 24hrs their stuff sometimes comes out at 2am and Target does it right when the store opens.

    But I really do think the eye problem is fixed, I am seeing more and more with near perfect paint so Playmates must have caught it in time

    Well, they had 3 of them. I grabbed the best one, but none of them were terrible. So it seems to be under control.
