SDCC 2017 Day 1 Update

By July 20, 2017News

After an explosive SDCC preview night, I didn’t think NECA could possibly bring more TMNT excitement to our lives but they hit another grand slam during Day 1.

Today NECA revealed the missing figures from their Dimension X display and my assumption was correct as we are getting a Slash and two rock soldiers, Granitor and Traag! These are painted as the arcade renditions of the characters but I have a hunch we will get the classic 87 look from these sculpts as NECA has been using recent sculpts more than once. Check these bad boys out! Too sweet!!

Don’t scream with joy just yet. Hopefully you saved your vocal chords for this next image that has surfaced. Ok…now you can scream!! A 1/4 scale 1990 movie Shredder and Foot Soldier!? I can’t believe it’s really happening! Hopefully by the end of the week we get a prototype. Here is another teaser pic featuring Foot weapons and a headband!

My two SDCC updates have been all NECA, and for good reason, but let’s move on to an interesting future release that Playmates Toys has revealed. Yes you are seeing things clearly. These are the turtles dressed up as Ghostbusters! I honestly didn’t expect anything new from Playmates with the current show ending this Fall so this comes as a pleasant surprise.

I’m rushing around here now due to trivia tonight, there was a TMNT question last week, but I hope to update again later on as I skim through more photos from this year’s big event! Stay tuned.
