@NECA_Toys Announce the New York Comic-Con Exclusive TMNT Eastman & Laird Villains 4-Pack! (and the heavens parted!)
September 6, 2016

If there’s ever been any doubt that NECA is doing the Lord’s work, this settles it once and for all!  YEARS after announcing/debuting these figures at Comic Con, Randy and the gang at NECA never gave up the fight to get these figures into the hands of fans.

I like to think that I had a hand in getting this set… because I would ask Randy for an update on these figures every time I saw him.  I think it’s coming out just to get me off his back.  🙂

Check out all the details below and set an alert in your phone for September 8th, because these are a VERY limited edition and they will move fast, and unlike the SDCC exclusives, this set CAN be shipped to your house even if you don’t attend the show!


We’re just full of surprises — not only will we be attending New York Comic-Con, we have a VERY radical NYCC exclusive… one that’s been years in the making! If you can’t make it to NYCC, we will make a limited quantity available for pre-order on The NECA Store later this week, and shipping will be offered (to U.S. addresses only).

Read all about it below, then keep scrolling for pre-order details!

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles – Eastman & Laird Villains 4-Pack



Time to kick it old-school style! The villainous figures in this NYCC-exclusive box set are based on the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles comic books by Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird. This set has been over 8 years in the making, and features brand new figure sculpts and deluxe packaging. Shredder and his Foot Clan minions stand approximately 6” tall and feature over 30 points of articulation, including double knee joints, for dynamic poses. Special paint deco reflects their comic book appearance. The box set is packed with accessories, including swords, bladed weapons, throwing star, Utrom mini-figure and more. The set comes in a gorgeous, display-friendly 5th panel window box that features comic book art!

Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website www.ActionFigureInsider.com. Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on MSNBC.com, Time.com, The Wall Street Journal, The Saturday Evening Post, CNN.com, AssociatedPress.com Wired.com, Fark.com, Boing-Boing, Gizmodo.com, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.

    Such great and awesome news soured by the extremely limited production run. Why do Neca keep releasing the coolest items in the most limited and hard to get fashion…
