Man all these statues and turtle collectibles coming out is getting crazy. I always liked turtles because it was manageable to collect but in the past few years it's just gotten away from me. The teaser is cool. Similar to the other sideshow set they're a fresh interpretation and not based on previous material.

Pretty sharp! I wanna say I like these better than their last set, at least where Leo is concerned.

Meh, I'm burnt out on all the TMNT stuff. There's simply too much to keep up with, or to care about.

Seems like such a short time ago that being a TMNT completionist was relatively easy. Anymore, it's like a car payment that never goes away.

The teaser doesn't do much for me, honestly. I have the Playmates statues, I have the Sideshow coms, and I'm leaning towards the Prime 1 Henson set. I have the Mondo set on order. What other iteration of turtles do I need, short of a legitimate set of toon turtles statues?

They look to be based off of this print they are doing.

Nice catch!

And yeah, I hear you I Crave Pizza No More. Whens enough enough? I have the Playmates ones, the Sideshow ones(+2 Mousers), and I skipped out on the Platinum Dunes movie statues for obvious reasons, but the Jim Henson designs have me very interested.

And you know where they all are? In my closet, in a box :( Until I have good enough space for them, there is where they'll remain.

These new ones look very cool, but I gotta draw the line somewhere. I'm thinking the lines here.

Here is another site that has an actual picture of the new Sideshow Raphael statue in the top left hand corner.

http://www.sideshowtoy.com/brands/teenage-mutant-ninja-turtles/?ref=crumb

It's definitely a more realistic imagining of the turtles this time around. A lot of nice textures on the bandana, wraps, and belts as well as the skin. I'm up in the air about getting any of these for now until I see a full reveal.

Yea.....too many things for collecting and every time less cash! lol ...i actually so happy with the first Sideshow ones....Got all 4 brothers red bandanas....
Its very interesting tho. for all people that didnt get the first wave..and now they have the chance to get a new set ..seems a pretty one...but im not into collecting all....:twink:

But seriously, they need to stop pumping out TMNT collectibles, we're being way too spoiled at the moment. At least give us some time to breathe before we get more collectibles to drowl over.

Maybe I'm alone in this, but I can't imagine paying over 2 grand for 4 TMNT statues. You could get an amazing TMNT piece of art instead, hell you could probably get a movie prop too.

I would consider those statues to be an amazing piece of TMNT art.

I'm loving all of these statue lines. They are worth every penny. Marvel and DC release statues like this all of the time, through Sideshow, and sometimes for more than $500. I have never encountered a TMNT quality piece which had a completely absurd price tag. Plus, the value of these will go up.

05-14-2016, 01:02 AM
I finally decided to switch to only Donatello for these high end pieces. I'd like to have them all, but I'd rather have 1 of each compared to missing some all together.

At least it allows me to grab the Prime 1 Henson Donnie now.

I'll just stick to Mondo for my full set as I've already gotten all those. I hope they continue that for years to come.

They're definitely cool, but $2K for a mass-produced piece of art is a bit nuts. They're like really nice prints. Personally, $50ish isn't bad for a cool figure or statue. Personally, when the price starts hitting three and four-figures, a TMNT piece better have pretty strong ties to the movies or early comics.

There's obviously a market for mass-produced pieces at that price point, though. Certain TMNT Mondo prints sell for crazy amounts of money!

It's not $2K for a piece of art though. It's four pieces. And it is four huge pieces, that connect into an even more huge piece. But you also have the option of just getting any one of the four and it will still be an amazing centerpiece. I understand how it can be tough to imagine being able or willing to drop that kind of money for anything that isn't a form of transportation or a home, but if you ever get a chance to see any of these in person, the idea of suggesting a price tag of $50 will seem like a bad joke. You still may not immediately run out to sell a kidney for them. But you will understand why they carry a hefty price.

Im not sure how I feel about these. I would love to see a price point and complete images of these before making any kind of decision. Lots of high priced TMNT stuff releasing lately and this would have to fight pretty hard for my money.

Leo is $350 and goes onsale tomorrow. The exclusive is limited to 500 and comes with a red bandana head. There are tons of pics on Figures.com

I am glad I got the first Sideshow statues for $200 each!! Seems like they are really taking advantage of those who missed then.....almost doubling the price in only a couple of years. I got my massive 24" premium Sideshow Master Chief for $400...and these are 10" smaller!! I'm glad I'm not a fan of the style of these but good luck to those going for the exclusive tomorrow!!

I like the not shipping till later thing because I can use the monthly payment plan. The plan doesn't even start charging me 40/mo until December this year.

I mean... yeah. I don't mind the designs, they're a little chunky for my tastes, but I like them more than, say, BayTurtles. That said, I don't see the appeal in paying $350 a pop for a redesign/"reimagining" kind of look like this.

What would be cool is if they'd do lines patterned after iconic comic artist's styles, like the Batman Black & White statues. Do a set of statues in an A.C. Farley style, or Mateus Santolouco, or Eric Talbot...

Good ideas...

I really like this style myself. There are pics of all 4 on Sideshow in an art print.

I love this design. Maybe I am alone...thats fine. I am buying.

They are also pretty huge...15x10x13. That might explain the costs a bit.

Better than Bay turtles, no doubt, but still not as endearing as the mirage, toon, Henson, or other familiar designs.

Really dislike the black gloves Leo is wearing.

I wasn't going to buy them, but at an edition size of 500 it will sell out rather quickly. Figure if I don't like it in person it will be easier to sell it later than it will be to track it down later.

* And as of about midnight the day of release, it's already sold out. This of you who aren't familiar with how Sideshow works can now join the waitlist, which doesn't guarantee an order, but also doesn't require a deposit unless the your order converts, which Sideshow will notify you about should the order convert.

I hear you on the gloves a bit, but they arent full hand. It also still says prototype, so maybe a change? Prob not I dunno...

Thats a good point about reselling. If it shows up and I decide I hate it, I could prob flip it.

Similar to the other sideshow set they're a fresh interpretation and not based on previous material.

I don't know if it's already been said, but these aren't fresh interpretations at all. They're based off the Dave Rapoza fan art drawings that everyone has already seen.

It seems a little underwhelming. The first turtle is all haunched over looks lonely sitting by himself next to 3 NECA brothers, 4 figuarts counterparts, and Mondo Leo...he needs some brothers!
I feel like the other 3 will be more impressive in statue form due to pose and size.

Packaging from sideshow was INSANELY good!

It seems a little underwhelming. The first turtle is all haunched over looks lonely sitting by himself next to 3 NECA brothers, 4 figuarts counterparts, and Mondo Leo...he needs some brothers!
I feel like the other 3 will be more impressive in statue form due to pose and size.

Packaging from sideshow was INSANELY good!

Oh yeah the packaging was very well donE.

I completely agree with the hunched over look, definitely not the strongest pose of the four. I guess appropriate for the leader to take charge.

I think Im looking forward to Mikey most in this line. I love his look. The Donny is also very well done

I'm loving Leo but I had a hell of a time getting him all the way down on his base. The peg is really difficult to cram into the knee without fear of breaking the model. After 5 or 6 times of putting him together and taking him apart it's been a bit better but I still can't get his feet all the way down to actually touch the base. Anyone else have trouble with that?

Mine does not have this issue. Both feet are touching their bases.

I'm applying quite a lot of pressure and still I'm about 3/16" shy of the feet on the base. Guess I just need to keep on working on it. I had no issues with the rest of the pieces. The scabbards were a little bit of a pain, but with a little force they went in fine.

This is what mine looks like. I focused the images on the knee where the peg is. See if you have a similar gaps...

FYI I did not have to push it down at all. I had to rotate the knee a bit since its a square in there.

Oh! That's actually quite helpful. Mine is quite similar. Maybe just a bit worse, but that does seem to be roughly the same issue I am having.Even to get it that close took a bit of work. i was afraid of accidentally snapping his belt/sash, but it looks like the foot on yours is off the base a little bit as well. I guess it's normal then. Thank you for that.

I assume you mean the front knee, the front foot (other leg) is resting on the higher portion of the pipe and the rear foot toe is off the pipe but the middle part of the foot is fully resting on the pipe. There are 3 full points of contact.

Yes sir. The knee looks similar to yours but each foot is just off the base by a small amount. I see where they are supposed to rest. The bump out on the foot shows how is should sit along the lip of the pipe on the front facing foot. Anyhow i think it will just take a little breaking in to get him all the way down sitting flush.

wowza! Does sideshow hold the product if you are still on a payment plan? Like can you just pay 200 and they will ship it when you are all paid up?

Got my Donny and Mikey the other day. Just had them out to assemble them and put them back up for now. We are re-working my warehouse/garage that takes up a lot of space so I dont have display room.

These are amazing. The Donny and Mikey are WAY better than that Leo. I badly want to see all these together, but I just dont have the room right now. The attention to detail on these are awesome and the red team faces are grittier than the rainbow turtles. So awesome-love these.

Mine said it was bumped and they are changing my payment plan to account for the delay.

Did you get the regular or exclusive versions?

Just got this email so I guess I am getting him at a decent time after all


Your order for Raphael (2004671) is eligible for early processing on October 10th, 2017. Would you like us to charge $132.89* on that day and then ship it to you right away?

So I finally broke out the Raph and it looks like the bandanna is broken off. Sadface

I will have to contact Sideshow.

Fair warning open the foam VERY carefully. No idea if I did it or not, but the bandanna isnt protected very well in the foam.

Another guy on Facebook said his Raphael was also in bad shape. I wonder if this early shipment was a crappy shipment. I opted for the early shipment so I hope mine turns out okay.
