I did not see any threads dedicated to solely this topic. Since it is this weekend, I thought it might be good to have any news or pics all in one place.

Does anyone know if they do a preview night for Toy Fair?

Got my fingers crossed for some new TMNT reveals via S. H. Figuarts in addition to the finalized version of Shredder.

Also any Neca news on the baby turtle they teased. I want that guy.

Yeah I would suppose they'll have all four turtles again from NECA there? Hopefully that means that the Leonardo pre sale goes up this weekend as well. Randy mentioned last year at SDCC that he had next year's SDCC TMNT stuff prepared but I wonder if we'll get a little tease at all?

I'm mostly looking forward to NECA's stuff, but anything and everything that comes out too is just fun to see and discuss really.

I'm not expecting anything tmnt related from NECA other than seeing all four 1/4 scale turtles together. Since Toy Fair is retail geared, they likely won't show anything that will only be available at cons this year (as we get closer to SDCC an NYCC, that's when I'll expect to see the surprises for this year).

So with that, I hope we see a more refined SH Figuarts Shredder and hopefully some other characters from them!

TheBlueTurtle1
02-18-2017, 07:33 AM
Series 6 and 7 will be Retro Series 1 and 2. No more Nick TMNT.

They will be in two-packs, paired as shown, with Foot army-builder. This is the full Series 1.

Series 2 will have the other two Turtles, humanoid Krang, Rocksteady, Splinter, Fly Baxter, and more Foot.

Except for Don, all the Turtles come with happy and angry heads. Don comes with happy and reasonably content heads.

These will only be at comic shops. Not at TRU. No more Turtles at TRU.

Still hope to get these though.

RaphaelinSTL
02-18-2017, 09:51 AM
It seems that since Mike's second accessory will be a bag of pork rinds that it makes sense for Leo to have the baby turtle. Kind of a shame that Raph didn't come with anything extra except for the pizza and the sai since Donnie got the TCRI canister...but it's not the end of the world really.

It's weird but I think I like the minimates shredder more than I do the figuarts. :lol: Don't get me wrong the turtles were great but shredder still looks a bit off. Easy pass this time around imo.

Same here. Something is really off about the Figuarts helmet.

Disappointing. What's with the random repaints? Muckman and Usagi are the only new characters there.

Great, more repaints...what a joke this company is. What, only two new supporting characters revealed? Muckman doesn't even look that good to me and Usagi is cardboard? Haha Hell the cardboard version will have way more paint apps so maybe they should just release it as is.

Disappointed with SH Figuarts Shredder too. The turtles are the best toon accurate figures we've seen to date and well...although cool, this Shredder is not.

Chaotix12345
02-18-2017, 11:29 AM
VERY disappointed about no Wingnut/Screwloose and the random repaints are just baffling, but the Monster Turtles are looking pretty sick. Those custom heads in particular are my favorite parts. After all of the reuse they've gotten out of those same Wave 1 heads, it's great to see something different for a change. :lol:

Also, it appears that Usagi's figure actually has a decent amount of articulation! Neat!

BYWInsaniac
02-18-2017, 11:30 AM
Usagi looks kinda whack... And why is his figure not on display? He was shown at London Toy Fair, along with a few other figures like Samurai Mikey on the horse and Jei.

And what's up with those gold repaints? Oy.

Samurai Turtles look sick, though. And I'm glad to see more monster Turtles. Franken-Don looks tight!

On second thought, do you think that Usagi prototype is outdated, and the mock-up is how they plan to revise the figure? If that's the case, I'm a little happier.

And I wonder why they didn't have Kavaxas on display. The character has been revealed, Greg Cipes accidentally showed off the figure MONTHS ago during his clever "spin around the room" stunt. Curious that he isn't being shown off. Think they decided not to go forward?

Super disappointing that they once again decided to ignore all the cool side characters in the show. I kinda knew I'd never get Mona Lisa, Sal Commander, or Bishop, but ya can't blame me for dreaming!

Not a fan of the repaints we see, they all look awkward, especially April. Gold Shredder is the better looking of the repaints.

I'm liking the trench coat Turtles and the Samurai Turtles looks really nice, but I don't think they'll look as impressive without that paint job, so that's a worry. The Universal Monsters looks spiffy.

B&R in FW outfits are okay looking I guess, bit they are just the same as the old ones with minimal extra bits to complete the look.

I really like Usagi, he does look a bit awkward, but all in all I think they did a decent job on making the hakama both articulated and visually looking like a hakama. Do not like his swords though.

Not TMNT but the Voltron pilots looks great. And I have no idea what Mysticons are, but they give off a vibe of remake of Princess Gwenevere and the Jewel Riders, and seems to be a decent rival to DC Superhero Girls. I'm really interested in them.

Right? I wonder why these companies have so much trouble with the non-Turtle characters. Playmates hit the retro-Turtles really well, but they went and Re-invented the wheel with Bebop and Rocksteady. The Shredder and Krang prototypes looked off model, too. Now we get another Shredder that is closer, but still not right.

Weird.

i won't be buying much since i'll be moving next month (god willing) but those teenage mutant ninja monster turtles are sooooo gonna be bought! if only they had glow in the dark claws and eyes though! nothing glow in the dark paint won't fix. i'm just abit warey that they won't be as nicely painted when released...

ugh. god. the nostalgia for the universal monster turtles is strong. i'm just very pleased with Franken-donnie! and mummy-leo! =w= *sigh* i've waited years for updates to my favorite variant line of tmnt.

Don't forget recurring characters like Sal Commander, Mona Lisa, and Shinigami. I get why they might pass on Wyrm or Bellybomb, but there are plenty of awesome one offs like Zeno, Zanmoran, Hiidrala and her Mermen.

Or how 'bout a repaint of April with her black jump suit?

Lot of cool vehicles, too. The Salamandrian ship is rad and PERFECT for their scaled down vehicles that fit one character. They could also do the Triceraton ships, or the Triceraton jet packs.

And what a missed opportunity: Playmates wanted to make a giant turtle playset, but decided to make a giant Leo instead of Tokka. Weak.

Hey im not saying they havent dropped the ball....a lot. But this whole place needs a case of expectation management.

Everyone here seems to want 80-90s era of toys, cheap toys with all the things. Those days are gone and its time to get over it. For one Playmates doesnt dictate everything like everyone here seems to think. Its all on retailers. They say "we want more Turtles those sell more than others characters". Why do you think Marvel figures are plagued with Spidermans Wolverines and Iron Mans??

Stuffs unpainted because thats what has to happen to have everything still sell for the price it does. And youd probably say "raise the cost to accommodate!" except threads like the SHF thread is full of people not willing to pay for quality.

Ok give it to NECA? You realize if its not Alien or Pretador wed get about 8 figures before they moved on to their next project? "What about Godzilla?" ok how many NOT Godzillas does NECA make? How many Gypsy Dangers were in the Pacific Rim line? Not to mention theyd be limited to TRU and Specialty Shops and half of the TRUs out there dont even stock half this stuff.

I realize not eveyone here gives two craps about how the toy business actually works. But it might be time to stop being so ignorantly hateful. This place has turned into an echo chamber of hate and its not fun to be here anymore

So from this video, we've learned more about the TV show as well as the figures. So we have the first arc with Kavaxas which we knew about, and after that it's Usagi, although based off episode titles it's the Monsters part. The last one is the other 80s crossover. Nice to know.

The monster turtles look amazing, I can't believe they actually look like Ciro's art style. Major props to Playmates on that front. I want those. Samurai turtles are great but as Kappa said will surely suffer a loss paint-app wise... Usagi looks HELLA awkward. :tsad: I'll still get him, but God damn. Oh, neat, a samurai one too. I like that one better. Happy to have two new figures of him regardless.

NECA's baby turtle is fantastic, I hope it's available for purchase independently 'cause I've not got any of the big Henson turtles & likely will not.

Freeman
02-18-2017, 05:40 PM
So did I understand correctly?
There will be 4 monster turtles and ALSO 2 hunter turtles?

Loosing Usagi puts, from my marketing point of view, Playmates in shame because you can't show up on a event like this without one of the key element of your hype.
Like the samurais a lot, too bad so many paintjobs and details are gonna get 'lost in production'. We should all coin this term XD

Candy Kappa
02-18-2017, 05:44 PM
Can't blame them for loosing Usagi, unforeseen events happens.

Would have been funnier if he was taken off the display cause ToyGuru from Jakks came over and dropped Usagi on the floor.

NECA's baby turtle is fantastic, I hope it's available for purchase independently 'cause I've not got any of the big Henson turtles & likely will not.

Looks like good news
From twitter today: baby turtles will be offered as a set and with some accessories later this year.

Yeah, but if you keep making them answer the question, eventually they'll be shamed into making them, like with human Karai.

I'll admit it's not perfect but it seems to be the closest so far (from playmates) to the source material. The one thing that kinda bugs me is how high the head sits on the neck but that's an easy fix.

Love SH Figurarts Shredder. So excited for the Monster TMNT, Samurai (USAGI!!!), and Muckman. New April is pretty reminiscent of Ninja April from S5, so I might pick that up. Usagi looks great, IMO. Why are people so mad? I want Mona and Shini too, but we get Muckman and Usagi, and people are disappointed. Anyway, I will pick them up, and I'm psyched for these are future releases from Playmates, as well as NECA.

Don't get me wrong: samurai turtles look fantastic, but this are prototypes and final product will have a lot less paint.
Monster are finally an interesting version of the turtles. They are not doing Chris Fradford or the Noodle Restaurant guy? Too bad, but at least the monster variants are funny and well done.
They are also doing treanchcoat Leonardo and some throwback R&B version? Well, not for me, what that is fine too.

But finally, despite beeing super happy because Alopex is making it to the cartoon along with Usagi, they are not releasing Apolex figure because she is a girl and they are doing THAT THING with Usagi. I'm sorry I you don't agree, you have your right not to, but that Usagi is unacceptably aweful for me.

That's fine! Everyone has an opinion, and that's cool. I know the finals will lose paint; just a Playmates thing. I agree about Alopex, though. I want her too. :tsad:

On another note, do you think they will add to the display as the weekend continues? Today they added Armored Usagi and the WWE TMNT, and we've already seen the Kavaxas and Jei figures, so could they be added, along with others possibly? Just a thought.

I am excited for all the new basics seen...even repaints. They're all fun in their own way and if the paint disappears at least they look like there's plenty of sculpted detail underneath. Fun is why I collect toys!

More new characters would be nice too...I think this lineup has some potential to keep things going longer so maybe down the road...

But could it be the apparent "gold wave 1 series" is meant to be a bookend to the line???

Hardly any exciting reveals this time around.
SHF Shredder looks good, but out of my price range.
I see no point to Minimates, so I won't be getting any.
More typical Playmates stuff: idiotic repaints with hardly any new sculpts. I'll only be getting the Usagi stuff; any of his varients and other characters from his world. I feel gross giving away my hard-earned money to Playmates of all companies, but I'm pretty hard-pressed for Usagi figs in my collection, and even though these won't be very good at all, I'm out of options. Believe me, if I could give money to any other company for some Usagi figs I would. Imagine NECA Usagi? What a dream come true that would be!

Randy from NECA has dropped two pretty huge hints about what the SDCC exclusive will be this year.

First:

https://twitter.com/NECA_TOYS/status/832920100672045056

And now from Pixel Dan's interview:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jii7qUhQfWk&t=10m0s

A 30-year turtle anniversary is of course the debut of the cartoon, so I feel pretty confident that there will be a release similar to last year's arcade turtles in cartoon form. I predict they are better than the Figuarts.

If there's a villains four-pack, I bet instead of three foot soldiers it's one foot soldier or Krang plus bebop and rocksteady.

02-19-2017, 06:10 AM
Ha, and I literally just got the game versions. I guess we'll see how different they are, but if it's just colouration I'm happy enough with these.

I've not been following the PLaymates stuff at all. I have Slash and Mondo, and I might get Armaggon. But of the announcement, maybe Usagi will be nice? The only one I personally want to see before the line ends is Alopex. I've been waiting thirty years for a mutant ninja fox figure...

I'd say a repaint of the two Arcade sets is most likely.

Just remove 90% of the paint apps and you'll have a better idea what you expect. That Rocksteady looks somehow even smaller than the first one, no elbows on the trench coat figures, don't know what up with that a Usagi head...at least they gave him elbow and knee joints, so that's credit due I guess.

On a far more positive note, the Monster Turtles look like fun Variants, too bad they're going to lose so much paint on the production model.

^^This so much

Maybe those Monsters make me get a set just to slide them out of the blister, repaint them (thanks to my TMNT board game training, now I think I could do that) and put them back in. Never have i done that before, but this molds look to good to be ruined AGAIN by Playmates.

Freeman
02-21-2017, 07:21 AM
I'm still very disapointed that they could not keep the quality of the big (and much better looking) Usagi into the basic line version.
The big one is nice but has almost no articulations, the small one is a piece of crap: doesn't fit in style with the rest of the line, looks famished, articulations look unnatural and overall has no sould at all. Terrible execution of a potentially fantastic figure.

tmntman
02-21-2017, 08:34 PM
How many heroclix tmnt are there, is there a website archiving them?

Here's what I know of so far:

Series One (http://www.tmnttoys.com/16others/heroclix/singles.html) had 35 individual figures and had the following items released around the same time

Mutagen Ooze canister (http://www.tmnttoys.com/16others/heroclix/ooze.html), Convention Exclusive Shredder (http://www.tmnttoys.com/16others/heroclix/conshredder.html), the Party Wagon (http://www.tmnttoys.com/16others/heroclix/turtlevan.html) and the Mouser Mayhem box set that had all four Turtles (http://www.tmnttoys.com/16others/heroclix/starter.html)

Series Two (http://www.tmnttoys.com/16others/heroclix2/index.html) had another 35 figures.

They also released a Fast Forces 6 Pack (http://www.tmnttoys.com/16others/heroclixfastforces/index.html) and a Dice & Token Pack (http://www.tmnttoys.com/16others/heroclixtokens/index.html) to go along with the second series.

Series Three (http://www.tmnttoys.com/17others/heroclix3/index.html) was released earlier this month with another 35 figures and another Fast Forces 6 Pack (http://www.tmnttoys.com/17others/heroclix3fastforces/index.html)

I believe that tallies up to 124 pieces released so far. Some are repeats though. The figures in the Mouser Mayhem and Fast Forces sets are the same sculpts as the individual figures, though they do have unique identifiers on their bases and Bebop & Rocksteady have slight paint variations.

Collecting HeroClix is not fun for people who don't play the game and just want to collect toys/figures...too expensive to complete. They seem to be doing a lot of con exclusives with the TMNT line, which makes it even worse.

I pick up a TMNT blind bag now and then (6 so far) but always with the knowledge that "this will, and must, never be complete" in mind.

No they are different. It's Playmates attempt to ride on the Titan figures Marvel does, the almost Barbie sized figures with 5PoA. But the Turtles looks super weird and stretched out.

It kinda looks like they are reusing the Giant Turtles head, but the bodies are new.

Looks like they fixed the problem with the head sitting to high on the neck. I'm picking this guy up for sure now.

I also like how they tweaked the way the swords are attached to the belt. It looks really fat and awkward in the publicity photo they released.

The new Titans style line would be perfect for Playmates to finally give us Traag and Granitor. I imagine a Kraang Prime would work out decently too, if not a bit flat. Of course, Playmates probably won't bother.

As for the repaints the basic line, what are they doing? I'm not opposed to repaints, but the color choices are perplexing. They could be doing homages or show relevant variants. Shredder has numerous past incarnations that they could draw from. Multi-color Footbots based on the games. A clear blue Mutagen Man for his frozen status on the show. A Merdude homage for Fishface?

And somehow still no Kraang variants? We should have had a blue Kraang years ago. A jetpack Kraang would be another cheap variant. The lack of Kraang figures in the basic line is a joke. They were primary antagonists throughout most of the show and we still only have a single mediocre figure.

Yeah, I'd love to see more creativity with the Kraang!

Its not surprising TBH. The Hasbro 5 PoA Titan figures are huge sellers for them and its why they keep being made. Kids love "big toys" and at $10 theyre easy sales for grandparent and parents to give their kids something to lliterally bang around, or take in the tub. Why wouldnt Playmates capitalize.

I have said it all along, if there has been an injustice in this toy line is the missed opportunities they have had, especially with the Kraang. But the Foot bad guy vehicles that could use existing turtle vehicles and a huge lack of aliens, humans, and mutants besides the title characters. Creep got cancelled due to not being the right size.

So where is the repainted Mondo Gecko?

say what you will. but they're probaily gonna sell well. as someone mention before, big figures of The basic 12inch variety do sell well. from hasbro's marvel to mattel's DC. they will be perfect to fit in with the 12inch line.

secretly i hope for jumbo 12inch monster turtles....

Must be selling well in places other than where I live. Stock never moves in any single store I have ever been in (outside of the Ant-Man I bought once to use as a Giant Man).
