I thought I'd start a thread on what will be a developing range of figures.

Two figures of very high quality have been issued so far.

If there are no objections, I'll add in some Casey details, and more Shedder details later.
If though people want to continue with individual threads in individual figures, I'll abandon this one.

But for now, we have Shredder and Casey Jones .

Shredder :

Shredder.
This is another fantastic figure from DreamEx.

He has though one minor issue of note.
When you get him, note the feet. The feet have to be unplugged to apply the armor . The pegging is NOT vertical. They go in at an angle, into foot rather than straight down, into the soul as you'd expect. Once you figure this out it's relatively simple to work the feet.

He looks amazing in hand. And it's another solid figure. Nothing flimsy about it at all.

Accessories are neat. He has his throwing stars, a totally cool sword (with scabbard) , a jar of mutagen Ooze and the coolest Krang communicator .

Gotta say , I am impressed.

Ok. Some pics. They don't do it justice.

So. Two figures out so far, and both are excellent.

I'm really looking forward to seeing how their take on the Turtles themselves turn out.

Shredder looks amazing. Damn I keep getting tempted by Casey so much.

Been wanting to just get Shredder and eventually Bebop & Rocksteady if they make them.

But Casey Jones is looking awful tempting from all the great pictures.

But then I'd end up getting the Toitles and the Krang from this line also. And argh!!!

couldnt really tell does he have an alternate left hand with shorter blades? i am not a fan of the super long hand blade.

DVD
11-07-2016, 12:05 PM
Yes.
He has several hands.
The fists, open palms and gripping hands all have the shorter blades.
There is only one pair of hands with the ling blades.

I like the look of them, but I wanted to display him holding the communicator so I am using one short and one long blade pair of hands. It's a feature of 1:6 design that allows for that personal choice of look. And I'm glad to see it in the SFA Turtles. On extras, I have to say that I don't think I'll ever display him with the extra head, but it's a nice addition to the set for anyone that wants to display him without any helmet or face plate.

Sweet Christmas those look amazing. Damn I just wanted to get Shredder and then Bebop & Rocksteady if they ever get made.

Now I'm damn tempted by the Casey, still waffling on him due to limited cartoon appearances, and especially the Toitles.

I wish they didn't have all the extra pounces and such that aren't toon accurate. But damn they look sexay.

DVD do you know the prices on the turtles?

Also at this point I am super jealous that you are in China for these...I have my Shredder on order for months, but these turtles are super exciting and I'm not even a 4-kids fan.

I kind of wish the elbow and knee bands were neutral colors, but these might be the best 1/6 scale ever. Mondo is pretty awesome too, but these win so far.

Next question. I have a pre-order for shredder at LunarToyStore for Shredder, but I dont see Casey Jones there anymore.

Anyone know where I can get Casey? If turtles are coming I want the whole set.

DVD
11-13-2016, 11:20 PM
Price points. I'd guess same as Casey if not cheaper .

Casey was 980rmb and Shredder 1080

I can't see these (smaller) Turtle figures being any more than 900 each.

Gosh, when I saw shredder, krang and casey i thought they were nice but i was really thinking about skipping this line... now i'm not sure.

the turtles are really stunning. best 1:6 turtles i've seen.

I do like the job mondo did, but they felt like upscaled versions of playmates figures (even heavily influenced by their designs). These feel a little more organic, a little more original in their adaptation yet very honest to the characters. It gels with me.

It looks like they are taking influences from lots of turtle interpretations, not trying to stay strictly based on Mirage or 80s Playmates figures.

I'm actually thinking the Turtles will either be the same price as Shredder if not costing more.
They have more accessories and a bit more complicated than Casey Jones.

They won't.
BBTS are asking $190 for each Turtle .
Leo and Raph(eal) are due to hit in January. I hope they sort the spelling out !!

I can't confirm, but after those, Krang should enter from Dimension Ex (couldn't resist) with Mikey and Don behind as the next release.

In mean time, I put all my 1/6 figures together:

If any one order their figure from lunartoystore (LTS) and did not get it please let me know by using the website contact button, or send email to support@lunartoystore.com. it is likely payment issue. at this moment to my understanding Casey is done, after market should be kicking in soon. Shredder is almost done primary market still have them. Turtle just started.

Two questions:

Are these figures rubbery? I don't see how Raph's cross-arm accessory could be easy to snap on if it's all one solid piece so I'm thinking it has to be rubber.

And...anybody know what's up with all those other accessories we've seen in con photos...a mini cheapskate next to Leo and a turtle in a trench coat...? I really want a trench coat turtle and I really hope DreamEx isn't planning to take the Playmates variant hell model into the 1:6 world to make me buy more turtles.

Evilcat005
12-04-2016, 01:45 PM
if you handled other dream ex figures I would assume its the same thing. as for the cross arm, I think it might be a softer material, but might not be rubber, this is just for the cross arm part. Rest of the figure should be the same as casey and shredder

1. DreamEX didn't say what materials are being used. probably ABS, PVC, nothing out of the ordinary. It's hard to tell if anything is rubber but unlikely.

2. Probably coming with Michelangelo or Donatello. There's also a chance that it didn't budget out and got canceled.

The description for Leo and Raph didn't say they would come with a trench coat. Probably there would be only 1 included with the future turtles which I'm guessing is Donnie because the trench coat turtle was displayed behind him.
There might be a chance that there's some pre-order bonus that includes 2-3 more trench coats.

Didn't get an answer when I express that fans will be interested in getting 4 outfits to fit all 4 turtles.

DreamEx will be shipping out Leo and Raph before Chinese New Year at the end of the month. Probably means Lunar Toys will receive their shipment early March

The boxes are slightly taller and deeper than Casey and Shredder.
This is because they are packed.

All of the accessories are amazing.

I've enjoyed each of these releases a lot.
I spent about if time yesterday messing around with these two new Turtles and enjoyed trying out the different looks that can be achieved. I hadn't noticed tho, till I saw my own photos that the two heads are set for battle and normal mode with their eyes. Unfortunately Raph's Battle mode head has something on the nose. It didn't wipe off right away, so I'm going use a cleanser later, after confirming that it won't remove paint.

I decided to load the guys up with all bags and the grapple. On the shelf, I think they look amazing.

My wallet is thankful that I do not like what I see.
They appear to be a hodgepodge of different textures, shading techniques, and styles. For instance the face appears very smooth, while there are very rough textures on the body and very angular textures on the feet. The knee and arm pads look odd because the body is so heavily shaded and they appear not to be. Also the heads seem too small for the bodies.

While the crossed arm attachment is a cool feature, overall these look rushed out and unrefined to me. I really like the Shredder, but Casey and especially the turtles don't do anything for me. Yay! I get to save money!

Now this is my critique and opinion. I don't want to rain on anyone's else's parade. I'm glad you are enjoying them.

I feel just in general that pictures of these don't do them justice. I found Casey and Shredder to be better in person than any pics of them.

On a side note my Leo and Raph are being delivered, so I'll know how they are soon.

Because, these figures that are made by DreamEX are not meant to be a exact recreation of a existing TMNT style, it's DreamEX's in-house own design.

Playmates was making figures meant to be a representation of existing official designs, like their now canceled Classics line. Their 1987 Fred Wolf Cartoon figures looked nothing like either the on-screen designs of the Turtles nor the vintage 1988 action figure designs, and their Movie Classics figures was completely off-base.

It's not a hard concept to grasp.

I like that there are variations on the designs.
Different designs, scales etc make for interesting displays.

I disagree. Playmates deserves every single criticism when it comes to the mishandling of the Classics line.

For goodnes sake, the shell on the 1987 Classics don't even cover their ass properly. :lol:

Leo and Raph arrived. Heads are definitely smoother than the body but do look better in person. Some accessories (comm) feel really cheap and some really nice ... the weapons rock. Metal! My raph has what looks like a fingerprint, and some missing paint flecks, on his plastron where it looks like someone pushed a still-drying figure into the foam... Leo has the fingerprinty pattern too but all his paint fortunately still there. Their plastrons are very very squishy so it may also be a ripple effect in the paint from being depressed and not a fingerprint. If it weren't for the size and accessories I'd say they feel kinda cheap...still happy with them though I wish I didn't have paint chips on Raph.

So at long last I got a 1/6th scale Shredder. I waited too long for the NT-02 so I cancelled it and got the DREAM-EX one. I like the look of this one better anyway. Everything shipped solid and arrived well from LunarToyStore.

I have to say this think is PHENOMINAL. I was surprised at how sturdy it is compared to my Hot Toys Vader. I know there are a few issues with him as to what he was included with, but the way I want to pose him? Perfection to me. I did have a bit of an issue with a wrist joint that I will talk to Lunar about, but much like the NECA movie turtles, you have to see this thing in person to truly appreciate it. Shredder came out AMAZINGLY well here. I dont like their turtles, but this Shredder is on point. If you are looking for one, give this guy a very hard look before pulling the trigger on anything else.

After the amazing quality of this...can anyone recommend a place to get a Casey other than eBay or something?

Sorry for the late reply. Wanted to tell you how I feel about them after I get a chance to.
At first I thought they weren't that great but after playing around with them for a while, I like more and more. The concern of metal weapons is that it might be too heavy for the figures to hold poses but so far the joints are sturdy enough to hold some cool pose.
The pizzas slices that come with the turtles could use a better paint job and a bit detailed sculpt.
The biggest thing that will bug people are the style of these turtles. They feel like a hybrid of the Fred Wolf toon +2k3 + 2007 movie. Pretty much DreamEx's own style. Very much like how Mondo's design combined the vintage Playmates figure design with Mirage comic look. If you can get past that and you like 1:6 figures then these might appeal to you.

True to 1:6 figure there's quite a bit of fabric pieces. I like the included pouches that you can clip on their belts and you can store the throwing stars or pizza in the big pouch if you like. Even the grapple hook can be clipped on the belt.

The accessories and the 2 different head sculpts gives me lots of ideas to pose them in different poses. But probably everyone's favorite will be the white eyes head sculpt. Wish the more mutual expression head with pupils can have a bit more personality instead of all 4 turtles sharing the same sculpt.

Articulation is the part that's a bit disappointing. The elbow and knees are only on a single joints with moving range similar to the Mondo turtles. Pretty much 90 degrees or less.
Others have pointed out that the hands are hard to swap around which is true. May need help with a hair dryer. With the softer plastic being used, I would avoid hot water.

The stands are pretty much useless btw, doesn't work with the turtle shell.

Finally opened up and displayed these. Dressing up Shredder was a chore!

I prefer the look of the turtles with pupils, so it sucks that it's the same mouth expression for both of them with pupils.... if Don/Mike are the same way I guess I'll switch to no-pupils for all 4.

I wish Raph had a better left hand to help hold the pizza box.

What exactly are we supposed to put in the smaller attachable pouch? Nothing? The communicators fit nicely in the big pouch.

Id really like to see our NT-01 Cerebral just get a longer set of legs haha. It looks like DREAM-EX is just copying that one and possibly even reusing the molds for the mid sections. I REALLY want a Bebop/Rocksteady that looks as good as Shredder.

This DreamEX Shredder might be my favorite turtle figure other than NT-01- tough call for me.

If they do a BB/RS as good as this shredder? SOLD!

YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!

That's strange that the articulation is that limited.

DreamEX didn't release the figure in time and the license lapsed. They've clearly given the molds to another company (whose only other release is a bat signal light) to have it released. The lack of articulation is clearly a cost saving method for production. I'm just happy he's getting released.

Heh... "News Hen."

It's really great to see a premium April O'Neil action figure and I commend DreamEx for the labor, but it's just not quite accurate enough to any particular continuity to distinguish it from any number of Marvel Legends based customs I've seen online. Including the white shirt underneath the jumpsuit seems a little strange. But most of all the head sculpt just seems too generic and bland. For the predictable DreamEx price point of $200+, I'm afraid this is a pass for me. Plus, the fact that I don't own any other figures in the line. Casey Jones has been my favorite of their creations.

Was not my intent to ruin the figure for anyone. The resemblance is strongest in the photo with the turtles, the one with her hand on Raph and head tilted slightly downwards. I'm just saying this might be a good starting point for someone looking to make a Kathy Griffin custom.

I agree about DreamEx. I wasnt expecting much from them based off Casey since I never figured they would take the line this far, but Shredder was awesome, and I guess the turtles did ok. I am excited for them to try BB/RS

I'm someone who would love April from Bandai or an updated one from NECA, but this one feels more "meh" to me. Maybe it's the whole getting captured thing that make me not want her, it's a bit silly. Yes I know it happens to her a bunch of times, particularly in games. But for promo shots for a figure it comes of as a bit outdated.

I guess she's nice for those who want a 1/6 scale April. Even though I love that scale I have so far not had any interest in this line. Except maybe Raph, he looks cool.

NoPressApril
08-18-2017, 12:14 AM
WOW... i'm in shock.

Edit: Okay over the shock. My opinion (for what it's worth) is that this figure represents what Megan Fox would have looked like had her beauty been natural and not manufactured. At least, that's what I see. The eyes are definitely hers. It's clearly a combination of Megan and the OT April. I am in love with this figure. As much as I want to though, I do not see Judith anywhere in it and I've obsessively studied her for years. I do have three complaints though: her hair color, the laces on the boots, and that white shirt (should have been yellow) but I will definitely buy it. It's so good to see an adult April in a yellow jumpsuit again. :)

Uhh why is her communicator completely different from the turtles'?
And....uhh...gagged alternate head maybe not in the best modern western market tastes there, DreamEx...you do realize we could add the bandage ourselves if we felt like a damsel scene??
And also...does this mean I need inarticulate Krang too to keep the set together?

I'll confess, I had forgotten DreamEx figures are officially licensed. I was thinking they were more along the lines of First Goken. So now I'm confused when all the promotional stills don't seem to identify the figure as "April O'Neil," but go with the "Newshen" designation. Do they even print her name on the press pass?

And the Krang's Android is designated as "Cerebral?"

The license has expired. They can longer release them as officially licensed, hence Cerebral and Newshen.

Also, the price for Cerebral is $208. Pretty steep considering he's got less articulation than a $20 Jakks Big Fig, but I'm in for the whole set so I'm now $208 poorer.

The gagged thing does not really fit April. What I mean is; Princess Peach, she seem to have a strong kink for getting kidnapped and gagged 24/7. It's kinda sad but that defines her. It's not exactly something I connect with April and to give her an extra head and a chair just so she can get kidnapped is silly, imo.

Okay? Princess Peach isn't a TMNT character getting a new figure, though. April was kidnapped/gagged a number of times, it makes sense. It's a bit weird, but not out of left field. I mean, let's be honest here, the average OT April O'neil Fan is weird too. If she's brought up on Facebook there's nothing but comments about childhood crushes or crass thoughts, & the bulk of her fan-art is unquestionably bondage fetishism. They're catering to that demo, which is smart, 'cause April's a hard sell in the first place. Their only mistake is making her ugly. :tlol:

Yeah, it makes sense catering to the fan service-y crowd to sell more units, and it's a fairly unique addition of accessories, the chair is pretty neat looking especially if it can fold up as well.

I'm just a bit surprised that despite the gagged fan service head, they went very modest in the bust department of the figure.

There are other OT April fans out there? I should dig deeper into that. I've never sexualized her though so on second thought maybe not. (she's more like my lifelong idol) to me she represents the perfect combination of strength and femininity. The perfect woman.

The term Action Figure is a relatively new one, as the old GI Joes where called dolls. You mostly have man-children that feel threaten by having their toys being referred to as "dolls" it's kinda silly, and will be adamant about "correct terms"

Some people try to define a doll as a figure that have rooted hair and fabric/soft goods clothes, but. On legal definitions, a Action Figure represents a "non-human creature" and a Doll represents a "human" due to tariff differences.

Never heard about the human and non human aspect before. I like having categories and specifications for products. I think without really knowing the formal descriptions it just comes down to a "you know it when you see it" type of thing. I collect it all and just like to refer to things correctly. I would be tempted to call these dolls if showing one in my display.

Yeah. It actually resulted in an interesting case back in the 90's where Marvel went to court to have the X-Men declared as non-humans for tax purposes. That's a rather humorous given so much of the X-men's history in the comics up to that point had been about their attempts to be accepted as humans.
