Here is a thread for the upcoming action figures that will be coming out soon for the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. These are a few of the things we know so far:

The Dark Turtles and Super Shredder actio. figures that will be Target exclusives during December 2016, will be sold in other stores starting 2017.
We might finally see the release of the long anticipated action figure of Muckman.
We will get more of the Tales of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles toyline like the Usagi toyline and Monster Hunters toyline.

Hitting the 5yr mark. Congrats. With news of the 3rd movie possibly not moving forward, let's see if this toy line can reach the original lines duration.

My heart says yes, but my wallet says no.

Well yeah. Too bad is Playmates. Can't they just not be that greedy with their money and just give us the figures we anticipate?

We may actually be getting Muckman Spring 2017, but I'm still skeptical. If he does release then I assume it's gonna be hard to get him like Karai.

Didn't the 2k3 reboot bring us figures from 2002 to 2009? I know that I got Leo for Christmas in 2002, and was thinking it was well into 2009 that Turtles figures were still on shelves.

Possibly. I didn't follow the 2k line at all. I don't think I said they didn't? Was just congratulating the current line.

I think the current line would do better if they got more new figs out sooner. I am still starring down tons of OOTS figures at my local stores. Are these really still selling? Here they seem to be shelf warming. Watch, I'll go over the week end now and find all new figs. lol.

Dont forget we got a new TMNT movie in 2006 so there was a movie toy line in 2006-2007 and then mini size figures that uses the movie sculpts but were marketed as the last season toy line

that's a Lie Target's website is never a good source for figures. just because the website says its available in stores that doesn't mean its there. Target's website is wrong Muckman isn't supposed to be out until 2017

best way to find out if a TMNT figure is coming out check Ebay for it first

I never believe target.com has a particular figure since they link all figures from the Nick line with the same DPCI number. I think it's stupid and have wasted many trips and much gas only to find that out myself

After what happened to me Thanksgiving last year I stay away from target.com they have their heads up their butts

I'm not surprised, but Playmates is really dropping the ball on this line...worse than I thought they could even do... 1 new-non turtle figure every few months with tons of turtle variations. I know it's all been said before, but it's frustrating. I'm catching up with the show and there are so many great figures/vehicles that could be made... I guess it's not the 90's anymore either though.

I want a Wyrm figure.

When not focused on the movies merch a toy line will usually go back to normal.

Only I wish they would actually focus on making bad guy vehicles for the figures. Maybe even a Mutating Shredder Playset like the Leo one. Bad guys gotta have rides and a place to hang as well.:tcool:

Well europe seems to be the third world of TMNT figures (that goes for transformers to), stores don't stock them anymore, except for a verry few OOTS figures shelfwarming. We haven't even gotten semi-old figures like Mondo, Bonafrog, any D-X figures, forget about ever finding human Karai or armagon in Sweden... So to me it doesn't mather anymore.

See it as an ill omen, and yes, this will spread.
When a formerly flourishing market (like the one in europe) is abandoned, USA will eventually go down the same path.

Candy Kappa

I saw a Napoleon once here in Norway, didn't buy him though. That's probably the newest figure I've seen beyond the OotS figures (plus Mystic Turtles and fly Baxter).

DonnieLaForge
12-10-2016, 08:28 AM
These don't move near me as well as they used to. You keep seeing OOTS everywhere because they made too many and retailers are just trying to get them gone and haven't resorted to clearance yet. In fact...interestingly I've never, ever seen a figure from the basic line on clearance anywhere. Either Playmates barred that and just eventually (after a looong time) takes back certain figures or the stores maybe warehouse them (I saw lots of 1st-movie figures thrust back out in a few stores) or just eat the loss and maybe even trash or repurpose them somehow.

International guys...don't fret too much. You were actually the first to get the frogs and some others in that wave and I imported them thinking they may not even be coming to the US and then months later they were everywhere. And honestly that was about the last new stuff before OOTS took over. Also I am in the US and only now have I started to find Karai and Armaggon. I think you will get them soon enough ... OOTS just gummed up the works for awhile.

I do feel the line may be losing momentum. But yet they are also stepping up quality a slight tick. Either trying to regain some ground there or they're not doing as bad as we perceive. Either way I'm in to the end and sometimes secretly hoping that end is near for my own wallet's (and closet's) sake. The OOTS figures were actually pretty cool in some ways so I appreciate them but I am annoyed at how long they are sitting on shelves and getting in the way of the Nick figures.

Turtle variants everywhere but you know what? In retrospect those original goofy variants are the nostalgia sauce...and it honestly kind of feels like ratio-wise we've had less variants than there were by the time the original line had played out. But Playmates needs to get way more novel and creative than just slapping on a zip line and helmet or painting a few dark slashes on. I could stomach reusing molds better if the creativity in accessories or themeing were there. That's why I was excited about the wrestling figs despite not being a wrestling fan...because they're the closest thing to wacky 90s turtles we've gotten yet (LARP and Mystic don't really count since they were actually from the show...but they are fun too). If they could bring that goofiness down to their basic line variants then that would be nice but I guess getting too creative is too expensive for $8.99 these days.

I'm hoping we'll see a head spinning Raph to complete the toon throwbacks...and that ninja action Don/Raph make it out. Only thing worse than too many variants is too many incomplete variant sets!

At the end of the day I think they're doing what they can and things that disappoint most people don't get to me as much. Articulation is hard to complain about both when comparing to the original line and when considering the price point against the current state of the biz. My main complaints are cheaping out on paint and accessories...and not getting creative enough. Their figures are generally more accurate to the show (not in scale obviously) than the original line but that also cuts the other way and makes them a bit less fun as figures.

In for the long haul, hoping to see more creativity and more beloved Nick characters, but also getting that voice in the back of my head asking "is it over yet?"...and part of that voice is linked to how hard it was for me to find Karai...if that continues even after OOTS is gone then I would call it a true sign of impending death.

I'm afraid not. They didn't release some of the figures from the first wave in Austria & Germany. Never seen a Nick Rocksteady or Bebop. Can't even find them loose without a packaging here. The last wave released is the Dimension X one. Nothing new since then.

inaheap
12-13-2016, 03:20 PM
I am really ready to see the OOTS figures leave and more new Nick figures come in. I figure maybe after Christmas. I imagine they expect a lot of people to buy the movie and movie figs as gifts.

Next year, which could also be described as next week ;-)

2017 will see the release of the Micro Turtles range.
These look a lot like the old versions. 4 'large ' Turtles, unfold into a range of sets. They look none too bad.
There are also a series of vehicles to go along, for the ride.
HSH get a great looking Safari line, following on from their adventure back in time.

Mine haven't arrived yet (expecting next week). I'll give more info then.

In a similar fashion to the large scale Dino's , we didn't get Leo till the range was completed - even then he was somewhat limited. So... I'd like to think a Don will be offered later .

Sorry Playmates, while I do like the micro turtles playsets when I was a kid, I just don't think these will sell in present day. Not a lot of kids play with toys these days and these micro playsets haven't been around for a while.
While I do like the nostalgia factor of things and will probably pick up a few for display, it seems like these will be attract adult collectors than kids.

i think i may be interested in those also but only because of my nostalgia of playing with the older sets. ill have to see them in person to decide if i want them. i may just get the Leonardo Dojo since i had the Leonardo set back then

To be honest, I was ready to pass on the micro sets.
Normally I've accepted the offer of figures before I've completed reading the emails. These, I did not reply about for some time, really only getting them for novelty factor, but I'm not impressed by them.
The safari HSH figures look good. HSH is a range I'm glad I didn't pass on. In MANY ways, these lil guys surpass their bigger brothers.

May I please ask for additional photos of your new HSH Sewer Safari merch? (It would be a real bonus to see close-ups of the bottom centre of the back; to see the other duos in more detail).
Plus, are there any indications that 'Sewer Safari' may indeed be a sequel to 'Blast to the Past'- for example, on the front of the packaging, is there any 'As seen in the Nickelodeon TV Special' info?
Repeat thanks for the Turtley Awesome info!! :D

It's well painted and detailed for such a small figure. I might not be able to resist these if the price is right. Wonder what they will run?

I'm excited for the micro mutants sets, omitted paint apps was inevitable (Mondo got the shortest end of the stick, where are his paaaaaaaaaaants?), just hope they're a good price. I like extra tiny scale because they make great toys for my toys lol... The turtle playsets are a bit silly looking, but the interiors look alright.

I got a Micro Mutants Mikey + Bebop + Party Wagon, Mikey can fit inside a transformers titan master which I think is neat. I should try and post some pics.

To be honest, I just keep that set up as a giant action figure!! I did, once open it up. It takes a huge amount of room.

I wish it was modeled after the actual party wagon instead of having his face, but it has a lot more paint apps than I expected. At least I can store the nunchucks in the back of the car because of the closeable door, so that's nice.

The lil figures are actually pretty neat, and didn't disappoint .
I've always been impressed with the mechanical detailing behind these micro sets, and the Transformers style of toys.

And, as requested- a (hopefully ) more detailed close up of the Safari range of HSH

The weapons rack: good idea , but the swords and sais are a tad loose. If you breath on the rack, they fall off.

The figures are ok, but as always, not as inclusive of the paint apps. Detail is good tho, for such tiny dudes.

I was able to find Mikey and Leo pet turtle sets, Donnie's and Raph's sets are in a second wave assortment.

Oddly mine are different from DVD's

Mine:
- Came with "training dummies", unarticulated figurines of Shredder (With the Leo pet) and Cockroach Terminator (with the Mikey pet)
- the weapons were molded same color as the turtle's skin.
- the city bg on my Mikey set is red

Stumbled on this site with pics of the proto-types:

Has anybody noticed a significant scaling back at local toy stores?

I just hit the Target and Toys R Us in Burbank, CA, and both have dramatically reduced the shelf space devoted to TMNT. Target probably had 8 pegs devoted to the basic assortment, now they're down to one. TRU probably had 12, but now they're down to 2.

Throughout the whole holiday season, Target's TMNT pegs were nearly empty. I've only seen the Super Shredder line once, at a Target in Culver City (about 25 miles away).

Has anybody else noticed their stores scaling back like this? It kinda makes me nervous that the line is going to die, especially since nothing past Super Shreddder has been officially announced, right?

I hope those Out of the Shadows figures didn't kill the whole line... Those things were strangling the shelves in LA for months...

I wouldn't be too worried about it until they actually finish the resets. At this point most stores are probably adding and removing shelf space and pegs based on what inventory they have left. And if they don't have any TMNT figures left, it is generally a good thing. It means that they sold through of all of their inventory. And that is a good sign. It's when you see lines with lots of inventory left over that will have to go to clearance that you should be worried.

01-05-2017, 09:29 PM
I noticed that, somewhat here in the Milwaukee area. I mean, the new figures keep on coming, but I noticed less and less space dedicated to the TMNT toys line. I remember early last year when there would be 2 big sections of TMNT toys in the same area of most stores, now a days it's a quarter of small section. But it's more than likely what TMNTMan posted as to why there are smaller pockets of the toys in the stores, these days or at least, the stores I go to.

Yeah, I was just getting a little worried because those movie figures just choked the pegs at TRU; it looked like they hadn't moved any of that for months. I don't know what happened to all of it, but suddenly TMNT has a fraction of the shelf space.

And at Target, the shelf was just empty for weeks, as if they hadn't reordered any of the basic figures. It was frustrating cause I want a freekin Super Shredder to go with the Leo and Don I found!

Hopefully the line picks up again and they have some great figures planned for 2017!

I did a lot of hunting over the past 2 months and revisited a few key stores including TRU at several key points over the holiday season. I was worried about how many OOTS figures were out there...and how few new figures. TRU in particular had jam packed an entire aisle full of TMNT merch right around the end of November including like 5 or more columns of loaded pegs for basics (plus an endcap for basics) plus tons of the retros that hadn't been moving at all all year at that location. What I observed over time is consisten with a sudden burst of sales for Christmas. Store after store shocked me over the week after Christmas as to how much was gone immediately after shopping season concluded. At that same TRU only a single figure was left hanging on less than half the pegs and there was only one of each retro left out. At the Walmart I frequent most it was the same story...stuff that hadn't moved in months suddenly gone...empty pegs hanging there. I never saw any signs that they had been removed in any way other than sales. That Walmart did eventually convert more than half its empty basics space into POP! Storage and condense the leftovers to a single still-bare column but it took a good week or more for them to do it. I saw this general pattern everywhere I went and I went a LOT of places multiple times (kept hoping to find good clearance or leaking 2017 merch!)... I concluded that TMNT figure sales must have been epic this holiday season. I can't say the same for any other section of the toy aisles I frequent except LEGO which also saw much holiday devastation. I'm no longer much worried about turtle sales in 2016...

Now...what I didn't see moving very well was Mega Bloks...which would be unfortunate and really a tragedy. Too bad LEGO has apparently negotiated to keep the clones out of its aisles most everywhere I go. Mega has really finally hit the point where I doubt most laymen could tell a difference now and they are so much cheaper too...you'da thunk they could have been a huge holiday hit too.

I finally got a hold of one of the new Turtle in a Turtle sets. I got Raph (will grab Leo next week hopefully).

His stuff can be neatly put away quickly. One thing though, the Sais are so tiny, one almost fell into the cracks of the right jail cell on his back...

I like it though, some elements were borrowed from the big Leo we got a few years back, but that's fine. The pet turtles have a little more scenery to work with though.

1. Kids prefer cartoon figures.
2. Stores stock up with movie figures.
3. Movie figures don't sell as good as expected.
4. Stores don't want to stock up with products that don't sell good.

Stores in general (if not all) don't know or care about the fact that there are two main lines of figures, it's all "TMNT" to them.

I think it's that simple.


People in denial please start to argue that:

1. the movie figures are super popular
or
2. stores do differentiate between the cartoon and movie figures regarding sales

Huzzah
01-09-2017, 07:55 AM
That and the mediocrity of the line is hurting the sales. Variants after Variants, no new characters, even kids have a breaking point. That and many of the kids who stared this line are several years older and no longer buying the line.

It's obvious that this line is in its waning days. Blame it on the market or blame it on Playmates (which I often do), but with the cartoon ending s will the line taper down until it's gone. Though I can't see the shelves being empty too long, it'll wait for some type of reboot or new movie/cartoon. Though I can almost certainly guarantee you that most people will not get their most wanted characters if they haven't so far, at best you'll see three or four new characters, umpteen Turtle Variants, and then it'll end, and those few new characters will be virtually impossible to find, I've yet to see Human Karai in any stores in my area, and I'm still doubting tha Muckman will ever be released.

Mozar got released, not Triceratons. Seriously how hard would it be to release a Triceraton soldier, of course I could say that about any other in this toy line. Just release all the concept figures featured at the toyfairs in the last few years that weren't turtle variations and that will fill up the 2017 basic figure line, along with any other main alien named by Mikey on the show.

Red sky toys weren't made in the 90's because the show was on the outs anyway what with cartoons being darker and edgier. The person in charge wanted the show to be less cartoon comedy and more like Batman and x-men of the 90's. Toys were not planned for this event.

During the course of the Fast Forward and Back to the Sewer there were virtual figures planned using the animated movie toys to repaint for the show. I don't believe they were released, but they were featured in Toyfare magazine.

I hope that we get a mostly complete ending of figures for this toyline. I know that final series for toylines generally are either scraped or hard to find, so let it end in peace.

The first series of Classics figures did not replace the basics line.

The 1990 Movie series did not replace the basics line.

The SOTO series did not replace the basics line.

The first series of WWE figures did not replace the basic line.

So why in the #@&%* would anyone think that these are in any way, shape or form a replacement for the basic line?

Hmm, was not expecting more WWE. Bought the first wave thinking it was novel. Now looks like it will be monotonous. Also, interesting how easy it seems to be to pump out new sculpts here and there on this scale (and lots more paint detailing)...but such a huge issue to do so in smaller scale. Have they thought about raising price of basics? I think we could let them get away with 10.99-11.99 couldn't we?

My Walmart has completely reset its action figure aisle. Basics were moved from the front of the aisle clear to the back, and given two columns of pegs with the larger deluxe boxed figures below. Across from them the deluxe OOTS figures hang in 2 columns of pegs and next to that were a column of empty pegs for the micro mutants playsets (baby turtles), and a column of 4 empty pegs for the micro vehicles. That seems like a lot of shelf space for micros and a saddening reduction for basics.

But the two issues are unrelated. It's not like Playmates lacks the production capacity to create new basic figures and the WWE figures. So acting as if the WWE figures are going to be produced at the cost of new basic figures is utterly stupid and to the extent to which anyone actually believes it, deceptive.

If there is any reason why the basic line has been hampered in the last year, it's probably the movie tie in and the fact that it didn't seem to sell well. Those figures actually did compete directly with the Nick basic figures for shelf space. And in spite of that, they still put out 26 new basic figures last year including 9 non-Turtle variations.

i think it goes deeper then that. how long did it take to get human Karai out while we were bombarded with variants (new deco figures for example) and we are still waiting on Muckman which is a staple in the basic line now these figures.

clearly Playmates chooses to make these over basic figures. even with the movie line there were variants before we even got April

If you don't like 'em, fine. Don't buy them. But clearly there were people who were fans of both properties and bought enough of them to make it worth producing another series. Why do you feel the need to dump on what they like?

I don't think a anyone is implying that these are replacing the Basics line, but more that Playmates as a focusing on these niche line nes instead of getting some much needed diversity in the Basic line, instead of yet another set of Variants.

Whether we agree with it or not Playmates line forever has been the turtles sell, that's why we will continue to get turtle variant after turtle variant. I personally have no problem with it, but if you do then speak with your wallet. Big companies tend to follow the dollar not the constant whining.

It's not even the fact they're Variants, the original toy line had Variants galore, but they were unique, often fun and quirky. The Variants now a days are mostly just the same recycled molds haphazardly altered, which in itself wouldn't be too bad, but the fact is that it seems they honestly have given up on new characters choking pegs out with a new turtle repaint, none of which are even consistent in their appearances (one will be Wave One, another set will be the Toon Turtles, the next will be the two molds pieced together and in never looks right). Which is a shame for those who collect the line.

More WWE Turtles... Sorry Playmates, I will never buy them. Hopefully the kids will. I guess. Though I'd rather they not, so you'll stop making them.

Kinda makes me miss the days when the ooze turtles were on shelves even if they did pegwarm for a while. Variants like that which actually feel more authentic to the brand.

Obviously I'd prefer all-new figures though. Still waiting on Muckman. How about giving us a Season 4 April?

Right? Those Variants while not the best, at least seemed like they belong, at least they had original molds. That actually matched with the toon aesthetic.

Also with April, Throw some knee articulation in there while you're at it.

Season four was the Dimension X season. There is a version of April for that season. If what you actually want is a season five April, it's probably premature to say whether they will or will not make one. Fortunately Toy Fair is rapidly approaching.

It would be so cool to see a toy of April in the Bruce Lee suit! Give her the Dragon Tonto, too.

If it was a simple repaint, I bet we'd totally get it. Unfortunately, all that space armor is molded on, and probably too much effort for Playmates to deal with.

Ninja action Raph & Don have not made it out anywhere in the US yet, although I think I saw that DVD has them. They must be part of the next proper wave that we are all waiting to see.

On another note...
I have only ever seen Spyline Loe/Raph at Walmart, and Spyline Don/Mike at Target. Kind of odd since I don't think they're timed exclusives. Wish they would push out a wave to correct all this and maybe slip in that Muckman...the pegs are all empty around me just waiting for it.

The horse is just the Movie III Samurai War Horse. Given they already have the mold, producing it would be incredibly cheap which means they aren't likely to cancel it unless store just won't order it.

Definitely looks like Rocksteady, especially since I see Bebop on the far left of that row.

I wish they'd use that Mix & Match Rocksteady for the base. I think that version has much better scale and articulation that the basic figure.

I was waiting for this info to pop up here and share my thoughts.

Dark variants (on dojo Splinter shelf) look well done but uninteresting as variants. Same for the 'spy' line or whatever they are.

Monsters make my smile (I own both original sets) but will have to come along with an interesting blister, accesories etc if I'm to get them. Wanna see they do a nice job with these at least. Crossing fingers.
Samurais again have a lot of potential, but in Playmates hands we know they're gonna be poorly painted so I don't know... Look more like Power Rangers than samurais

Usagi looks unacceptably wrong done, too this and with no fighting yojimbo pose at all, not to mention Jei (the one in the black kimono).

What about those 2 TigerClaw variants?
And the single turtle on trench coat? Is that Leonardo?

Yeah I'm slowly adjusting my expectations so I don't become so disappointed after NYC toy fair. I guess I should just assume lots of turtle variants from a toy line with turtles in its name. But it would be really great to at least get one new non turtle character for say every two or three turtle variants. I wonder why the next wave of WWE figures didn't show up at the London toy fair? Also am curious if perhaps Muckman would be North America exclusive. But thinking it would never happen.

Just a heads up - some Walmarts may be accidentally (or even intentionally?) liquidating the new "Tales" wave with the Dark Turtles and Super Shredder. I got all 5 for $5 each in the clearance section. Seems very strange since these are relatively new.

Just a heads up to anyone else who may be interested. May have been a fluke at that store but I don't know... it's worth keeping an eye out if you're wanting these.

Huzzah

Not too unusual, a lot of times when they do their clearance it's usually marking stuff as fast as they can without separating series/waves. It's why I was able to get a couple of newer Marvel Legends figures at the 4 dollar markdown that one of my local Walmarts was selling a couple of older waves for, and often they're in store markdowns, not official from home office, so you won't see the same prices store by store.

Sorry that this is gonna come off as a rant, but I stumbled across the new Super Shredder wave of turtles figures and have to say...I'm 100% done with Playmates TMNT stuff.

That Super Shredder figure...the lack of paint seriously hurts it, especially when you see it all painted up on the back of the packaging.

I know people like to point out how notorious Playmates is for skimping on paint, but this is ridiculous.

In all honestly, the Super Shredder figure comes off looking like a melted knock-off toy as even the 'sculpted' details are barely there.
Playmates was already losing me over a year ago with the lack of accessories and paint on the TMNT figures to 'cheap them cheap', but Super Shredder cemented I have no desire to buy any more TMNT toys from them unless they stepped up their game (yeah, right).

Even the re-issued classic TMNT figures even have had less paint than the original versions of the toys for crying out loud, and people used to complain about the paint jobs on the vintage toys!

It's cool to see Usagi coming to the line finally, but I don't think he'll be very good so...yeah. Plus, the whole Muckman thing is just BS. It'd be one thing if he was just shown as a prototype, but he's shown on the back of the TMNT toys as though available.

I feel ya, Rahzar was so dissapointing I've not bought a single figure beyond wave 1 ? Metalhead, Fishface, Rat King and Rahzar.

I also bought that Ooze flinger Leo since I found hin cheap and I was planning on using his head on the Basic Battle Shell Leo, but I've been so disappointing that I've stopped buying the figures I initially wanted like the BS Turtles, LARP, Mystics, and the mix & Match figures that have a better scale then the basics like M&M Tiger Claw and Foot Bots.

Plus figures in Norway have shot up in price. They went from 100NOK to 160-170NOK (from $12 to $19-$20 for a basic figure). So that's been a huge dampener when a $10 figure at best costs twice as much and the quality is worse with less paint, minimal accessories. At this point it's getting cheaper to buy them online on the secondhand marked.

Yeah, the undersized characters like Snakeweed, Rahzar, Leatherhead, etc...really didn't help my feelings towards the line.

And now it seems like the later parts of the vintage toy line, most of the figures coming out are just turtle variants with maybe one or two new characters mixed in.

Baxter-Fly, Fugitoid and Squirrelaniod are basic figures that I still want, but I just haven't had the enthusiasm nor the priority to get them yet.

I'm pretty much about to liquidate 90% of my Playmates and Playmates scale customs, because I'm long since over them. I'll likely keep the Wave 1 Turtles and the Party Wagon after I repaint it and that'll be it.

Plus, the whole Muckman thing is just BS. It'd be one thing if he was just shown as a prototype, but he's shown on the back of the TMNT toys as though available.

To be fair they did that a few times with the original line and I think slightly less but still happened with the 2003 line.

Still doesn't make it any less frustrating.

Muckman had the one of the coolest designs in the entire toyline. Even if the paint was bad, he was mostly green and the figure would have been worth the sculpt alone to buy.

What's up with Muckman? Just because he wasn't at LTF, doesn't mean he's cancelled, right? Did I miss Playmates saying something about his cancellation officially, or what?

Powder
02-01-2017, 05:42 PM
Well he had been cancelled previously (then allegedly brought back from the dead, as they said he'd be a 2017 release). So it's worrisome not to see him included at this point.

It's a Christmas miracle in February. One of the 5 toy stores on my city had Mozar, bebop and Fugitiod, it wasn't TRU (they are still filled with purplebacks and OotS figures). but one of the non-brand stores that have changed names like 15 times last year, and the action figure aisle is like a 5ft tall 3ft wide stand and two pegs was TMNT while the rest was transformers and Superheroes.

Didn't buy any of them, though, not when they are $20 a pop.

Oddly enough Micro Mutants Mondo has unpainted pants and it looks weird. I've been sorta tempted to get some paint and paint up some of the omitted details.

I picked up the rest of the pet turtle sets finally. Oddly enough, the Raph and Donnie sets don't come with a third unarticulated unpainted "practice" dummy like DVD's version and they all required placing stickers in some spots. I had a bit of trouble getting them aligned, but I probably did it just as good as the factory probably would have...

Pet Raph has the worst portability and storage, where am I supposed to put the cage and projectile w/ gun? The foot soldier door is kinda lame because the foot soldier is just an unpainted bump.

Pet Donnie isn't too gimmicky compared to the other sets, but has decentish storage.

Micro Mutant sets for Leo and Mikey have variants. The second version that comes in the wave with Donnie and Raph come in slightly different colors for weapons (same skin color as the other mutant they come with) and backgrounds and no training dummies. Also the one without training dummies you may need to apply on some stickers yourself.

Huh. I found Don and Raph and big Leo micro sets too at TRU. Didn't even look at the small Leo/Mike since I had them already...and didn't notice til home that the new ones lacked dummies. I also noticed for the first time that the one that came with big Raph is actually the forthcoming Fred Wolf style Rocksteady that we have seen low res photos. Perhaps the dummies with these were going to be more "spoilers" like that so they were yanked?

I'm not sure myself, could have been a budget thing or different factories, and one factory was night enough to make an extra static figurine?

I can confirm the Leo Turtle in a Turtle set did not come with a bonus practice dummy.

02-25-2017, 03:41 PM
I feel ya, Rahzar was so dissapointing I've not bought a single figure beyond wave 1 ? Metalhead, Fishface, Rat King and Rahzar.

I also bought that Ooze flinger Leo since I found hin cheap and I was planning on using his head on the Basic Battle Shell Leo, but I've been so disappointing that I've stopped buying the figures I initially wanted like the BS Turtles, LARP, Mystics, and the mix & Match figures that have a better scale then the basics like M&M Tiger Claw and Foot Bots.

Plus figures in Norway have shot up in price. They went from 100NOK to 160-170NOK (from $12 to $19-$20 for a basic figure). So that's been a huge dampener when a $10 figure at best costs twice as much and the quality is worse with less paint, minimal accessories. At this point it's getting cheaper to buy them online on the secondhand marked.

I wish i did stop buying at 1 wave.the price they are going fore and how hard they are to come by i cant collect both loose and in pacaking.i am consindering if i am gone sell those i have in packing and continue to collect loose or if i just sell them all.if i coued Get a desent offer i think the best woued be to sell them all.it woued be a relif not to go hunting on this line

And just because the don't have these characters planned now doesn't mean anything. They just rolled out the line for the next year at Toy Fair. They certainly aren't going to whip anything out of the blue this year but there's always next year and the one after.

Don't get me wrong, I love the TMNT line and will buy the figures coming out, like the Monsters, Muckman, and the Samurai line. I just think not producing Kavaxas, Mona, Shini, etc. is a missed opportunity.
