I was wondering about this. Did playmates announce that they were going to rerelease super don, super mike and lietenant leo? Or did they just do it?

I want more terrible rereleases and im trying to understand how they are doing it.

They didn't announce them in the traditional sense, but they did include images of them on their site among the other Classics just before people started spotting them. So I guess check that part of their website every once in a while.

These figures are not anywhere to be found on Playmates website, but a source from Playmates did leak the information about these figures back in the Spring. My source is posted below.

And, for what it's worth, when this latest wave of figures got released, a reviewer for "Toy Hype USA" received word from Playmates that this wave is supposedly the last that will be made.

I'm a little skeptical myself about the claim that no more figures can be made. We'll just have to wait and see.

Really wish they'd re-issue something worth a damn. Secondary characters, rare figures, etc.

Last week these figures finally showed up at my local TRU, and when I went back today, Super Mike and Super Don were gone. It doesn't seem much a surprise to me that both of those figures would sell really quick.

None of that stuff makes it to Australia, at least not at any shop I've been to. We got the four original Turtles and the Party Wagon and that's it. I've never seen Shredder, Krang, Bebop, Rocksteady, or any of the weird variants.
