Revelead at SDCC although no pictures were allowed there are 4 WWE/TMNT Figures on the way.
Leo/Cena
Don/Undertaker
Mikey/Savage
Raph/Sting

http://www.toyhypeusa.com/2016/07/21/sdcc-2016-playmates-toys-teenage-mutant-ninja-turtles-interview/

Playmates Toys will be offering new 6″ Turtles that are a mash up between Turtles and WWE. While no photography was allowed, we were the first to see these in person even before WWE. These are quite an interesting take on both franchises and we feel that it brings them together nicely.

The figures will include:

Mikey as Randy Savage
Leo as John Cena
Raph as Sting
Donnie as The Undertaker

These figure will have slightly less articulation than the other 6″ figure offerings. They will also come with some WWE accessories like a garbage can, steel chair that does not fold, and various other accessories.

They will also be available at Wal-Mart first in November 2016, then everywhere else in Spring 2017


since this kind of took over the usagi thread i figured i'd make one for it specifically.

Discuss all news/notes/opinions below.

Well... no offense but you could've asked them to move it to the 2016 toys discussion. I don't think their important enough to have their own thread considering their only making the turtles and its just a small branding of a wave. Also I think I may have seen the Leo one in a YT vid showing off Playmates SDCC. But it may not be it. I'll try to find it later.

No, I disagree. This did kinda warrant it's own thread if only because the main 2016 toy thread has so many pages you'd never even know about it unless someone PM-ed you about it. I'm surprised they went with Macho Man. He seems to be the only classic of the line up since Undertaker still wrestles like once a year or so.

i can def see Mikey as Savage but Raph as sting is kind of a head scratcher. But Donnie and Undertaker are nothing alike but i approve of that cause Undertakers my favorite wrestler haha.

Character wise i'd go Raph as Lesnar or Stone cold but wouldn't translate to a toy well, so i understand the Sting choice.

08-07-2016, 07:09 PM
The Raph/Sting connection I think goes with the whole vigilante angle etc although hed probably be better off as Randy Orton.

I kinda wish they never mixed wwe and turtles. It's lame if you ask me. Sure I grew up on stone cold and dx, but I don't like the idea. Especially with Playmates doing it.

But I'll still get Donnie.

Ok wrestling AND TMNT fans.....I love it.
I for one was extremely excited but that was because I assumed they were the basic nick assortment with wrestler paint apps. I've always been biased to 5 inch figures. Maybe because the first figures I ever had were TMNT but I just love that scale and the first Nick turtles are my absolute favorite turtles.

...anyway as a lover of both franchises a Splinter in a Ric Flair robe would just be so....just....damn.

...the Owen Hart thing was harsh.

I think this whole idea is stupid but I agree with you. Pretty funny after all these years of Macho being a black sheep of WWF/E he's chosen over hogan probably due to all his legal stuff last year.

I appreciate what they were trying to do here but they should've just done STUMP variants

Donnie
08-08-2016, 06:28 AM
Haha, I never would have thought I'd see something like this. It's a crazy idea but I like it. I grew up watching Savage and Hogan, and as a young kid I loved DX and the Brood and the Hardy Boyz. I still watch WWE for laughs when I catch it on. I'll get Michelangelo, because Savage was always my favorite classic wrestler.

Has a price been mentioned yet?

I will definitely get all four if at basic figure price, $8.99. But I have a feeling with the larger packaging and scale I'm not going to be that lucky.

I'm thinking $19.97 is going to be the price. Same as the SOTO classic collection figures. But hope I'm wrong.

So 23.75 per figure. But I guess shipping is involved with the 95.00. Thought these are Walmart exclusive. Guess not if Ringside has them. Also I was way of with my price guessing. lol not the first time that's happened. :lol:

Well, Ringside generally has somewhat jacked up prices for their wrestling toys. I'm almost certain Walmart will price this TMNT WWE figures at 19.97 each, coming out with tax to nearly 85 dollars, so it will be a cheaper purchase...I'll just wait for these to pop up at Walmart, instead of ordering online.

If you are having trouble finding them, keep in mind that they are the same assortment # as the Secret of the Ooze figures. So if your store still has them in stock, you probably won't see these show up until the SOTO figures sell.

TurtleWA
11-25-2016, 09:58 PM
They are in WA state. GF found some about two weeks ago for me but is holding them until xmas.

She went back recently and no others had been placed out. So I'm thinking Walmart might only get one set at a time or they go fast. She did mention seeing some SOTO figs though.

I would say splinter would be Flair. He already has the robe so just deck it out in gems. He is also older and more seasoned so yeah definitely Splinter. Put a platinum blonde wig on him and you are practically done. I would say Casey Jones for Kane but not skinny nick Casey though. 2K3 Casey would have been a cool mashup with masked Kane.

And yet we live in a world where we get both. You just can't buy them both at Toys R Us.

Based on the Assortment numbers, Playmates considers this a continuation of the Classics line. And that line has been retailer exclusives for quite a while, including the first series of WWE Turtles. So I'm going guess this series will be as well. If that is the case, the retailer that is buying the series would likely have far more input than normal. And just like almost every license ever, the retailers want to see the main character(s) on the shelf. (And that doesn't just mean for TMNT, take a look at how many stupid Batman and Wolverine variations have been produced by other companies.) The same principle applies here. They could have expanded the series to add another character in. But I doubt they could have sold the line without the four Turtles. (Well, I guess they could have skipped Donnie and replaced him with a side character. They seem to overlook him a lot.)

Henson versions specifically, you are correct NECA hasn't made them. They have made 1:12 scale video game figure and the Mirage comic based figures. So clearly they can make 1:12 scale TMNT figures. Hopefully 90's movie figures are in the works from them. But the fact that they haven't made them yet and if they decide not to make them in the future, it won't be because they can't get the rights to do it because of Playmates.

No but Playmates has blocked anyone else from doing so in the retail market unless actions are taken such as turning things into keychains, etc.
They just don't understand the collectors market and most of the time it seems that they really don't care and just want to focus on kids.
So with them thinking that way it shouldn't be an issue to allow them to sell at least to Toys R Us and have them put only in their collector vector section of the store or something like that.

i agree with you here. if they only care about selling to kids chances are kids wont even look in the collector vector section so if NECA could sell Henson turtles or even make the video game figures to sell individually people would be happy adult collectors wouldn't hate Playmates so much and kids could still get their figures

i would rather see Playmates allow other "collector" companies like NECA make collector figures then to continue to watch Playmates make lousy, uninterested attempts at collector figures

The included ghost is like when the original Kenner cartoon ghostbuster toys included ghosts with those action figures. Now it makes me wish these ghostbuster/TMNT would have included the cartoon paint job; Store Exclusive? series 2? With Kenner like packaging.

Also, did The Rock ever wear the outfit that Raph is wearing, except for on That 70's Show?

Nice to hear from you again DVD. Now I am wondering how long before I see the Ghostbuster figures at my local Target.

I'm so out of the loop, I don't know if these GB dudes are old, new or what.

Can't see anything else here on them. If anyone wants, I'll do a photo shoot of them and create a topic.

And, nice to be back.

Welcome back! Was curious what happened to you. As far as GB topic thread go check this one out. Could be a place to post more photos.
