It seemed a little odd that NECA would want to buy the bankrupt Lootcrate company a few weeks ago, but now it looks like we are getting a look at a big part of their new strategy for the brand. They have just launched multiple crowdfunding projects through Loot Launcher that feature NECA exclusive release figures for TMNT and Gremlins. The new set up essentially gives NECA their own version of Hasbro’s Haslab program. Let’s take a look at the new releases:

NECA TMNT Movie 30th Anniversary Crate – $49.99

Cowabunga! 30 years ago, the heroes in a half shell took the world by storm with 1990’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie and we’re celebrating with an exclusive assortment of limited edition TMNT gear!

The crate includes an exclusive “Spirit of Splinter” action figure not available anywhere else! It stands over 6” tall and is fully poseable with special iridescent paint applications, cloth robe, and LED campfire base to recreate one of the film’s most iconic scenes.

“I am proud of you, my sons. Tonight you have learned the final and greatest truth of the ninja…”

What else? An epic assortment of other TMNT movie collectibles & accessories. Plus… no anchovies. And we mean NO anchovies. You find anchovies in this thing and someone’s in big trouble, okay?

NECA Gremlins “Dress Up & Play” Figure – $49.99

Don’t get him wet, keep him out of bright light, and never feed him after midnight. Oh, you already broke all of those rules? Well, get ready for mayhem with the Gremlins “Dress Up & Play” Figure!

This 6” Gremlin figure features 2 brand new exclusive outfits: a “Flasher” Raincoat with detailed buttons & waist belt; and a “Flashdancer” outfit featuring a sweatshirt and legwarmers! PLUS, you also get an assortment of brand new accessories, including a Poker Chip Pile, Bow Tie, Visor, Mallet, Hand Puppet, Fedora, bonus interchangeable hands, Sunglasses, Frosty Mug, Cigarettes, and Playing Cards to further accessorize your Gremlin collection!
