Well, down here in Rockford, the Target here went Turtle crazy! I got extremly licky because I was originally searching for a Lord of the Rings figure gift pack, only to run into these little suckers! I picked up all of the figures except the Foot Soilder. (Ran out of money. :cry: )
I would review the figures, but it seems that everyone else has already given a review. :lol: They also had the role-playing weapons, the Van, and the Cycle.

While I was returning home in the subway, I saw this kid packing his new Rapheal figure and motorcycle toy. He sure looks excited. The TMNT are getting a whole new generation of fans. Basically I see the toys all over the place now, it's not a rare sight to see them so I wouldn't consider this a sighting.

It's good that TMNT is getting more fans BEFORE the new show! Hopefully it will catch on for another few seasons... at least.

Hey, just be happy you have a large city to go to there....the closest one to me is 200miles away... :(

omg! turtlemania is back!

so for the past 3 weeks of so I've been scouting the stores for the figures, and they pretty much were all sold out or haven't gotten shipments yet. Lo and behold, the day before the official release of the first episode, every store is packed with them!

I only went to Toys R Us and Target, but both had a PLETHORA of figures. The main turtles were the mostly prevalent ones but there were even a couple foot soldiers splints and shredders. Target had 4 shredders :o and I wanted to get them all but by then I was out of money since that was my last stop.

I've spent so much on the new TMNT stuff already...I have about 17 5", 2 12" and the vehicles...man and there's sooo much more to come.

GO TURTLEMANIA!!

Maybe for the foot soilders. :wink: :lol: I need to buy like four of them and a few of the Tech ones. Can't wait to get the vehicles and new figures that are coming out! (Again, I hope the mousers are the same size as thier counterparts from the new show!) :lol:

Well, I'm gonna customize my turtles weapons so they have the color grip tape as they do in the show. :D I'll post pics when I get finished. :D

Only1Don? 02-08-2003 02:11 PM

Yea I only need a foot soldier, shredder, splinter, the battle tank, the sewer slider, and the four minis you can find at ride aid

Eye of Sarnath 02-08-2003 05:54 PM

Darn, I forgot about those minis. Gotta look for those, sometime.

Only1Don? 02-08-2003 08:19 PM

PanMan 02-08-2003 11:15 PM

does anybody know if they arrived in canada yet? (i specifically want to know if they are in wal-mart/superstore/zellers and not a comic shop since there are non around here :wink: )

Cascadia 02-09-2003 08:33 PM

Ok.....I have spotted the all of the toys in several cities along the Front Range of Colorado. :wink:

mikemgmve 02-10-2003 12:23 AM

Hello all, I'm new to these forums, this mini-turtle revolution sparked by the new toon/toys has also re-sparked my interest in the TMNT, it's been years.. it even prompted me to dig out my hundred plus toys and just sift through em and remember, basically, my childhood! :D

Anyway, as far as the new toys go, they seem to be sold out EVERYWHERE, which is a good sign. I've only tracked down a Michaelangelo (and I only plan on buying the other 3).

Keno 02-10-2003 12:48 AM

today i went back to the comic store i found the toys at before and they were totally sold out and none comming in anytime soon :(

Michaelangelo 3:16 02-10-2003 04:12 AM

Target, Valencia, Everything but the 5" figures and the Sewer Slider. YAY! :tparty:

mikemgmve 02-10-2003 10:20 PM

All KB's near me seem to be sold out, so its a bit frustrating, as money for my is limited at the moment, and I shouldn't be spending it on them as it is. So even a buck cheaper is appealing.

I've heard shipments should be coming in at the end of this week. I figure I'll stop by the closest KB when I pick up my zelda bonus disc on friday.

Cascadia 02-10-2003 11:59 PM

The KB stores around here are always sold out. I found mine at the local Target store. They always have a ton of them waiting for me. :P

Eye of Sarnath 02-11-2003 02:35 PM

Sigh. It's getting hard to find the figures. At Wal Mart, sold out. TRU, sold out. I may never get Shredder at this rate. At least we know the TMNT are popular. :roll:
