I think they said that it's contractual. Playmates has the rights to TMNT in 6 inch scale at retail. Any 6 inch figures made by other companies needs to be an online only/convention exclusive. It can't be a mass retail distribution.
As much as I would be interested in 6 inch scale movie figures....after having the 1/4 NECA ones for a while now....I don't think that much detail could be squeezed into the smaller scale.
The shading on the skin, the detail on the eyes, the shell....even something like the yellowing and dirt on the finger and toe nails....It's just not going to be as impressive.
I'd probably still buy 6 inch movie figures....but the 1/4 scale NECA ones are my holy grail of TMNT. If they go ahead with the planned movie Shredder, I'll get that in a heartbeat as well.
I hear you on that. Honestly even with the lost detail if they're anything close to what NECA puts out for 6 inch scale they would basically be my dream toys. Don't get me wrong I love the 1/4 scale because we have them and they're amazing but I'd gladly flip those to someone who wants them more for a 6 inch scale. We could both get our holy grails then .
I'm right there with you, though. NECA wrote on instagram that we should see Shredder at SDCC...so maybe by the end of the year? I'll definitely get him.
