Cool Stuff: NECA’s ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II’ Tokka and Rahzar Action Figures Are Up for Pre-Order

Published

on

NECA’s line of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles action figures based on the original movie from 1990 have been extremely popular. In fact, they’ve been so popular that collectors have had an immense amount of difficulty getting their hands on them due to low stock, online scalpers and bots, and poorly handled retail exclusive releases from Walmart and Target. NECA has heard complaints from fans, so for their latest release, they’re making it easy for everyone to buy.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Secret of the Ooze introduced two new mutants to the franchise in the form of Tokka and Rahzar, a snapping turtle and a wolf mutated to become formidable opponents to the heroes in a half-shell. Fans have been anticipating the release of these figures ever since they were revealed at the 2020 Toy Fair earlier this year, and now they’re available for pre-order, but only for a limited time. Check them out below, and find out where you can buy them.

NECA Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II Tokka and Rahzar Action Figures

Tokka and Rahzar Action Figures

 

After exposing a wolf and snapping turtle to the same mutagen that created the crime fighting quartet and their Master Splinter, Tokka and Rahzar were born!

Making their debut as NECA’s first figures from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2: The Secret of the Ooze are the Foot Clan’s newest members to defeat the turtles.

Tokka and Rahzar are massive, standing at over 7? and 8? respectively, with over 30 points of articulation from head to toe, including articulated eyebrows on Tokka.

Also packed in this massive 2 pack are real chains on Rahzar, swappable hands, a shield, pipe, wooden beam, fire extinguisher, mutagen canister, and a suspicious box of donuts!

Tokka and Rahzar Action Figures

These figures are scaled to the rest of NECA’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles line, so they’re bigger than the turtles themselves, and it shows. That’s likely why they cost a little more than the usual two-packs of TMNT figures with a pricetag of $69.99 plus shipping at The NECA Store. But the extra cost is worth it since NECA is offering pre-orders that make it much easier to get these figures.

They’ll do more pre-orders like this in the future if this first one goes well. So if you’re even considering picking up a set, make sure you do it soon, because the pre-order only lasts until Friday, August 7. After that, you’ll be forced to get them on the secondary market.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry Finally Bought a House

Published

on

Over the last year, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have lived in multiple homes in three different countries, ranging from Frogmore Cottage—the Windsor home they received as a gift from Queen Elizabeth—to a luxurious waterfront home on Vancouver Island in Canada. But according to Page Six, they’re finally putting down roots in the United States, five months after moving due to the coronavirus pandemic.

On Wednesday, the outlet reported that the couple bought a home in Santa Barbara, an hour and a half northwest of downtown Los Angeles, and have been living there since July. “It has been a very special time for them as a couple and as a family—to have complete privacy for six weeks since they moved in,” a source said. “They intend to put down their roots in this house and the quiet community, which has considerable privacy. This is where they want to bring Archie up, where they hope he can have as normal a life as possible.” Meghan and Harry’s spokesperson confirmed the move to the outlet.

The source didn’t reveal any details about the house or what the first-time homebuyers paid, but said they were planning to stay for a while. “They have thought about this carefully and researched it well. This is the place where they plan to be happy, make good friends and bring up Archie, giving him the chance to play with other children his age.”

It does mean that they’re forgoing the palatial and distinctive mansion that they borrowed from Tyler Perry, but Page Six’s source said that it’s for the better. “While it was a nice favor to them at a very difficult time, Tyler Perry’s house with 18 bedrooms isn’t Harry’s style,” they said. “Yes, he grew up in royalty and the halls of Buckingham Palace, but he prefers more intimate homes with character.” The source added that they were already in the process of buying the home when they filed a lawsuit against paparazzi for photographing them on Perry’s property. 

Even before the couple announced their plans to leave the royal family, they were looking at properties in the Los Angeles area. Last September, sources told Vanity Fair that they were trying to buy in Calabasas, but by February, Caitlyn Jenner claimed she heard rumors that their hunt had moved to Malibu.

‘The Crown’ Casts Jonathan Pryce as Prince Philip

Published

on

The Crown has a new Prince Philip. Game of Thrones actor and Oscar nominee Jonathan Pryce is set to appear in both Seasons 5 and 6 as Queen Elizabeth’s husband, Variety reports.

The actor is taking over the role from Tobias Menzies, who played the prince in Season 3 and Season 4, which is set to premiere on Netflix later this year. Matt Smith previously held the role in Seasons 1 and 2. When Pryce joins The Crown for Season 5, he will be accompanied by Imelda Staunton, the series’ next Queen Elizabeth, and Lesley Manville, Season 5’s Princess Margaret.

Pryce earned an Oscar nomination this year for his role in The Two Popes, playing Pope Francis alongside Anthony Hopkins‘ Pope Benedict. He’s also appeared in Glengarry Glen Ross and Tomorrow Never Dies, and more recently played High Sparrow on Game of Thrones. 

While the fourth upcoming season of The Crown is due later in 2020, fans will have to wait a while to see Pryce in his Season 5 role. The show is taking a filming break — pre-planned and unrelated to the coronavirus pandemic — and won’t be back for its fifth season until 2022, since Netflix won’t being filming until June of next year.

Creator Peter Morgan originally said that Season 5 would be the final installment of The Crown, but he pleased fans when he revealed last month that the show would continue for Season 6, which will be its last season.

“As we started to discuss the storylines for Series 5, it soon became clear that in order to do justice to the richness and complexity of the story we should go back to the original plan and do six seasons,” he said at the time. “To be clear, Series 6 will not bring us any closer to present-day – it will simply enable us to cover the same period in greater detail.”

Captain Marvel 2’s Nia DaCosta Responds To Mulan Skipping Its Theatrical Run

Published

on

Either way, it’s yet to be seen if Mulan skipping a theatrical release will end up as a mistake. Arguably, the move could see pushback from audiences and also lose out on box office numbers. On the other hand, fans eager to see a movie of its scope might flock to see it regardless of the Disney+ subscription and additional $30 price, making it a big hit and reaching an even larger audience than if it were in the theaters. Mulan is scheduled to release September 4 on Disney+.
