Pretty athletic ... I do not remember slim waists and sixpacks of Bebop and Rocksteady in the OT ... :ohwell:

Pretty athletic ... I do not remember the narrow waists and the sixpacks of Bebop and Rocksteady in the OT ... :ohwell:
Given they're not what I want but they are really well done figures.
It's really tempting but I'm sticking to my guns and passing on these guys.
Just wanted to share the good news with fellow fans who have been wanting these.

Thanks for sharing ! It is interesting to see the followers from the vintage toy line ... and the vintage figures were also pretty athletic. Right.

They sold out quick. I was close to buying them but then I remembered the eyes and bad paint on my turtle classic figures. I would rather hand pick em at Toy r us. Hopefully they don't sell out there too when they get them in.

Sold out in 2 hours? That's some weak supply, or some high quantity buyers.

Glad to see that you guys can finally get these bad boys. In this case that description is best suited!!
I hope you like them as much as I do when you get em in hand.

Nope, Playmates lost me with these. It's a shame, 'cause missing joints aside I think they look great, and that's coming from someone who always hated Bebop & Rocksteady.

I'd say its a pretty safe bet that they will.... *grumble, grumble* Oh well, I'll just have to hand pick them at TRU

Mine arrived today! They're pretty awesome aside from the fact that whoever made Rocksteady, thought no one would be taking him out of the package ever. Whoever felt that an easily removable hat was a good idea, deserves a stern talking to. The hat falls off if you even look at it. It was pretty frustrating to get him into the display case because the hat wouldn't stay on.

Wow that was fast, I suppose when mine arrive I will just glue Rocksteadys helmet on, that sounds like a bit of a pain. Congrats on getting yours already Heather!

Heather Breckel
11-15-2013, 02:37 PM
Yeah I did 2 day shipping, which was only $8. Still, I was expecting to get them Saturday since I'd ordered them Wednesday night. I'm actually glad that their fingers aren't articulated. It looks nicer and they hold onto their weapons easier than the turtles.

Lordmylar06

A small pinch of poster tack under the helmet will hold it on there.

Green Machine
11-15-2013, 03:21 PM
Mine came today too! I really like them. When I first saw the pics of them I was disappointed that they weren't more toon accurate. But they grew on me and now that they're in hand I love them. I took about 20 pics.

They look sooo tiny in comparison to the turtles.

Had they been more show accurate that wouldn't be an issue since they where pretty short in the cartoon, but with that beefed up design the classic figures sports it looks a bit goofy, in a bad way. Might pose them with the basic figures, or give'em some minor paint app and pose with the NECA figures.

They are shorter than the Turtles by a little bit. The way they hunch over puts their heads closer to their chest.

Also, I'm really surprised Rocksteady's hat comes off. Neat! But damn hope no one loses that.

Thanks! I'm glad you like them. I was hoping the pics would help give people a better idea of what they look like.

My daughter almost lost the hat as soon as I took them out of the package. We didn't know it came off either.

Yeah, the hat fell in the sink when I took him out of the package in the kitchen.

Has anyone asked Playmates about Rocksteady's neck? I get cutting back on more minor details like the helmet paint, but his neck being the same color as his shirt is particularly annoying. It would be nice if they could fix that with a running change.

No, unlike some people on this board I won't buy crap figures just 'cause they're TMNT.

Now, if Playmates screw up the movie turtles as badly, then you might have a point - NOTHING is going to keep me from buying those!

Received my Bebop and Rocksteady today. They look pretty good, was a little thrown off by the scale. The Bebop looks like it had been opened and then someone taped the plastic back to the card.

Oof. Kitchen unpackaging isn't recommended. I lost an accessory (a gun I think) as a lad down the drain once.

idreamofpins
11-17-2013, 02:05 PM
I don't understand all the hate for these figures. Is it the style they decided to go with? The lack of ankle rockers? I can understand a little disappointment with the lack of paint on the guns and Rocksteady's helmet. A little paint will take care of that though.
I can't wait to get mine. Ordered them on Wednesday.

Since they just came out online, I would think soon. But beware, TRU is probably crazy town now with the Black Friday upon us.

Was lucky enough to see this thread late the other night and ordered Both off Amazon so thanks OP. They came today and look really good. I'm also pleasantly surprised that the packaging is still in good condition when arrived since its hit or miss sometimes with Amazon. I still have the 4 turtles MOC and will put these next to them. They're screaming to be let out and displayed though :D

Well, congratulations to everyone who got there Rocksteady and Bebop figures...

eBay has them listed (together) for $100: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Teenage-mutant-ninja-turtles-classics-rocksteady-and-bebop-moc-/141121185525?pt=US_Action_Figures&hash=item20db7a66f5

Meanwhile it's not up on Amazon or Playmates site.

I just love ebay sellers don't you ?

I finally got mine today even though someone I know in California ordered them a day later than I and got them Saturday o.O Buh. Anyway, Rocksteady's neck is the only thing that disappoints me. Well, that and Bebop only getting one accessory while technically Rocksteady gets three. Anyway, I'm happy with my purchase.
