- Each figure is individually sculpted and styled based on the TV series with heights ranging from 4.25” (Mikey) to 4.75” (Raph, both Donnie and Leo’s heights are 4.5” tall). Each figure has 13 points of articulation and comes with their new core weapon accessories.

- All the Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles action figures will feature exclusive, additional decoration and details on the figures and accessories.

SRP: $30.00 each

Wonder if they will sell these online like a few of their past exclusives?

Price is BS but given the rarity they would still be worth it.

Are these likely to turn up on ebay? wouldn't mind a set.

It makes me laugh Playmates has the balls to charge 30 bucks for their ****** product.:lol:

newfan 07-09-2018 01:24 PM

Are these the same that will be £10 over here when they come into the stores (not sure what you pay over there) just an early release or are they better quality, bigger etc?

Candy Kappa 07-09-2018 01:26 PM

Thirty ****ing dollars for the paint job the retail figures should have had, wow...

BlueKatana 07-09-2018 01:57 PM

Ugh, that price point.

I’d bite at $20 for at least Leo (and I’d still feel like I overpaid), but not this.

IndigoErth 07-09-2018 02:01 PM

For $30 I was a least expecting are larger scale figure with a special paint job...

TurtleWA 07-09-2018 02:07 PM

Would have been really great if they did one box for all the figures. So a four pack.

Like the NECA arcade box. With a window display and cool artwork from the new show.

Heck, even partner with IDW and include the comic.

But I’m dreaming. :tsmile:

It would just be awesome to make SDCC exclusives extra special and worth collecting.

TheBlueTurtle1 07-09-2018 02:09 PM

Oh right, $30 dollars lol, I assumed you would just pay retail price, but just get them at SDCC and get the "special paint job" that's WAY over priced.

Edit: just looked at the differences, the retail versions, don't get any of the skin spots and markings. I don't understand why on earth the retail versions can't be like the SDCC versions. Think how much detail the 80s playmates back in the day. They must have been around $10 bucks.

$120 for 4x Playmates figures? :teek:

Wow. I'd be ashamed of myself for buying those. :tlol:

The Leo must be the one that Powder received some months back.
The extra deco is nice, and I’m sure I don’t need a third set of these, but I’m equally as sure that I’ll get em !! Haha

Oculus Orbus 07-09-2018 02:48 PM

If you get all four, you'd be paying for them about as much as for the NECA SDCC Exclusive set. It's almost as if they weren't even aware of how bad their product actually is. I second everyone's thought here, these exclusives should've been the retail releases.

plastroncafe 07-09-2018 02:50 PM

Wow, yeah.
Don't get me wrong, I think the figures look great...but not $120 for the set great.

And suddenly I'm not all that upset that I can't make it out to SDCC this year.

Redrumh2o 07-09-2018 03:22 PM

How much were those first Nick figures in the tin.....or were those gifts?

What did Leo/Shredder Con exclusive retail for?

I don't think the $30 is TERRIBLE if they have a better paint job, are limited, and come in a nice display box. The thing for me is I am just not a fan of this version....maybe the show will change my mind but...yuck!

***First of Two Latin Kings*** 07-09-2018 03:51 PM

Only Canadiandrome would buy these :tlol:

Have fun shooting yourselves in the foot, Playmates. Let us know when you've finally run out of bullets.

sdp 07-09-2018 04:52 PM

I think some of you guys aren't getting who they're for, These are the better painted versions that they took pictures of and sent for people to review early on. These same sculpts will be released at retail soon enough with less detail for normal prices and you can get those.

With 2012 they showed us these awesome figures, sent some to reviewers for a sneak peak and then we got the sh-tty paint app mass produced versions in stores with no way of buying the cool ones unless you want to pay scalper prices on ebay whenever in a blue moon they show up. At least now Playmates made it available for people to get them, you'll still get the mass produced versions later on.

Same exact thing but with proper paint apps... :tgrumble:

Yeah, they're sporting the same paintjob but the SDCC figures seems to come with the retail accessories, I think the prize figure just came with signature weapons.
