So Vol 12 has been released, which includes #51-54 (Chameleon, Wyrm/Scumbug, Animus War p1-2) as well as the second half of the Megadeath backup story.

There are 18 issues left. Generous math alone would say 3 more trades at 6 issues each would finish the series. If so, it would be:

Vol 13: #55-60, which includes 3-part Terracide and 3-part Blindsight.
Vol 14: #61-66, which includes the Blindsight epilogue (turtle island, drawn by Lawson) and the 5 part Cyber-Samauri arc.
Vol 15: #67-72, which includes the 4-part Moon Eyes Saga and 2-part "The Early Years".

I don't see any other way to split it up into, say, 4 or 5-issue trades without disrupting either Cyber-Samauri or Moon-Eyes Saga.

Does anyone have any other guesses as to how the last few trades will go, pending of course no other skipped issues? Are there any tie-ins likely to be included? (To date the only tie-ins they have included were Mutanimals mini and the one Mutanimals issue from the 4 horsemen story, so I guess there aren't any other crucial ones). Any remaining crucial backup stories?

Thanks.

They could swing four if they include the Slash issue of Mutanimals with Terracide. Then 58-61, then Cyber Samurai, then a Moon Eyes and Early years volume. Maybe they could do Moon Eyes alone and do one more volume that packs the Early Years with Year of the Turtle. When I had a subscription as a child, they sent me Year of the Turtle issues to finish off the subscription.

Hmm, good point. Did they include the Mutanimals issue with Armaggon? I feel like they didn't...

Man so close to being done!! I had a binding company create a trade for the skipped issues between volume 8 and 9 so when the final trade drops I'm done :)

Neat. Did you just use your own old issues? How much did it cost you? And no copyright issues?

Yes, I tracked down the floppies. Since they are not scans the trade is slightly smaller but it works out because it's a ".5" trade. Since the issues are only bound together and nothings be sold, there's not really any copyright issues. I even created a custom spine and cover using scrapped cover art from a previous volume.

I don't recall what I paid but it was under $30. Looks like a legit trade so it was well worth it.

So my copy has an error in it, the first page of issue 51 is printed again instead of the first page of issue 54. Does anyone else have this error?

Yep, error. I posted the original missing page in the other Vol 12 thread (http://forums.thetechnodrome.com/showthread.php?t=55031&page=3).

TMNTA vol. 13 will collect #55-57.

Wow, you're right. I see it here (https://www.amazon.com/Teenage-Mutant-Ninja-Turtles-Adventures/dp/1631408852/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1476053068&sr=8-1&keywords=tmnt+adventures+volume+13).

I was NOT expecting that. A 3-issue trade at $20? It's a neat arc, but only 3 issues?? (Maybe they'll throw Mutanimals' Slash issue in there, because no TMNTA trades have been as slim as 3 issues.)

And not until MAY!? Dragging these out or what?

I'm guessing vol 14 will then be 58-61, which includes Blindsight 1-3 and its epilogue. Then vol 15 will be the 5-part cyber samauri arc. Finally, vol 16 will be moon eyes and the 2-part early years. All of these make sense, but they'll have to add Mutanimals to vol 13 to make the price tag worthwhile...

Cover art for Vol 13 is now up, even though it has a looong release date of May 9.... On the plus side, the $12 price seems to reflect the slim issue count (3 issues).

Cool cover. Disappointing that it's a three issue release but I'm just glad that were getting these.

And that the price matches the slimmer volume.

But why 6 months away?
