View Full Version : IDW merch?

07-03-2014, 04:37 PM
I've recently started reading the IDW trades and oh wow...I'm super in love with everything about the series. I really can't get enough.

I'm wondering if they have released any merch that's relatively affordable...posters, shirts, figures etc. I took a little look but haven't found much.

I don't really buy the toys but if I could get some MOC figures in this style I'd probably go all out and dedicate some wall space :)

Literally nothing. You can commission the artists or sometimes purchase art they've provided on IDW Limited's website, but that's it.

Lameeeeee man. Seems like they're really dropping the ball on that one. I'm sure I'm not alone. I wants me an Old Hob.

I've been lobbying for posters, prints & stickers since day one. That's the very leeeeeast they could do, but yet, nothing! & of course, toys would be stellar.

You can contact the artists, though. I've bought a lot of prints from them at conventions.

Playmates mentioned a while back that the Classics line could include figures from IDW. Mind you, they didn't elaborate and that line moves at a snail's pace, so it's pretty unlikely, but apparently there has at least been some minor discussion on some level.

Good idea on contacting the artists...I've seen the site with original art for sale but it's well outta my price range. Prints could be more realistic for me. I live far away from any legit con action so I'm stuck with online ordering. I'll look into it.

Don't mean to flash my goodies like King Ego but I thought I'd share the IDW related art/prints I've gotten over the years to inspire you or others to reach out to the wonderful talent over there.

First Michael Dialynas commission featuring the turtles in sort of guerrilla warfare attire-

So as you can see, these fellas will sometimes pump out awesome art for you, or at the very least sell you some badass prints! Good luck!

I would be interested if Playmates gave it a try and release a series for the IDW TMNT. The sculpts needs to be on par with the first Turtles in 2012. I think the 4" size works pretty well so the IDW Turtles can share the Nick toon play sets. The only thing is Playmates need to step up and provide more consistent articulation for other characters besides the Turtles.

Comics tend to get little to no merch. Archie didn't get anything either, nor will IDW.

It took Mirage like 20 years to get those Playmates statues and then the Neca Figures based on the comics for goodness sakes.

If nothing else, this has me thinking about commissioning David Peterson to do a Turtles piece. I already really enjoy his style and it has been one of the styles that really seems to fit them very well. I think I'll start a fund to build up untill next year's Heroes Con.

But yes, I too would like some IDW merch. The IDW series is the reason I've really gotten back into TMNT. It's one of my top 3 books on my pull list (Atomic Robo & Wolverine titles are the others).

Shame. I really want an Alopex plushie.

There are plenty of talented plushie makers on Deviantart you could commission for one.

Would be interesting if we have mini figurines. Kinda like the pokemon figures by Tomy.

I really want some IDW toys. I absolutely love the designs for Karai, Bebop, and Rocksteady in the IDW universe.
