I couldn't find any info after doing a search, but I've been wondering about the re released basic figures from 2009. As far as I understand it, the 4 turtles each came with a DVD containing one episode from Season 1. What I want to know is if the 5th and final episode of the first season was released with any of the other figures. You would think maybe Splinter or April but that doesn't appear to be the case. Seems kind of weird if they used all of Season 1 except the last episode for bonus DVDs.

Yep, just the 1st 4 with each Turtle. I think Shredder was gonna have episode 5...maybe.

I've actually never watched the 25th bonus DVDs, not even sure where I have them anymore.

Well I guess I'm 4 years late on being disappointed about it anyway. Thanks for the quick reply!

Trust me I was disappointed as well...I have the 4 individual disc, it'd be nice to have all 5, despite having the season 1 disc anyway... :P

Especially since Shredder & Splintered is the best episode of that season! It just sounds like real sloppy promo.

Well, the 25th release figures wasn't exactly stellar, as Casey got canned and Playmates Mirage turtles never came either.

IMO there's no reason to have the 25th DVDs loose as they are clearly inferior to the Season 1 set, plus they don't have any box art. I don't plan on owning these toys when you can get the originals, even if MOC. I find anniversary nice marketing gimmicks to attempt to woo former fans back into the loop, but find them poor choices for the real fan to keep.

I have the 4 DVD's loose and in package. They aren't anything special, but I was excited to have them when I started getting back into TMNT in 2009. I really do wish the 25th Shredder had come with the 5th episode, though. The DVD's basically just play the episode on a loop.
