Eastman Designed ThreeZero Figures
 
The Kevin Eastman designed 1/6 scale ThreeZero figures have been revealed. They're not based on Kevin's regular work but rather new designs he created specifically for this seet of figures. I like Mikey & Don's designs best. These have a very mid-90's Kirby The Fifth Turtle aesthetic which is good or bad depending on your specific tastes.

The photos can be seen in hi-res on Kevin's Facebook page.

What do you think of these?

If I can afford them, I'm definitely in for the set.

Those look pretty awesome. I would get Mike first, closely followed by Raphael.

It's just enough of a weird stylized update/departure from the original E/L "prototype" designs that now (always) I really just want proper figures of the Intergalactic Wrestling Turtles.

Just saved the pics to my photos.
As I said in the other thread, I like em. I think they are quite a ways off yet as no prototypes will be ready in time for sdcc, but the clay models certainly look pretty neat. I am definitely in for this set.

Mondo are classic mirage. Threezero are based on a different interpretation. Im glad threezero is different than mondo. Im in for both mondo and threezero sets.

I know. Still :ohwell:

JayDubs 07-07-2015 03:47 PM

I'll probably pass on these and just get mondos

Raph looks quite a bit like Eastman's Kirby concept from the unproduced TMNT IV movie.

Jester 07-07-2015 04:26 PM

I hope the sculpts are refined, they don't seem to capture that "Eastman" look of the sketches.

The Fifth Turtle 07-07-2015 04:38 PM

Cool, but based on the price points these are an easy pass for me. Especially with the Mondo figures coming down the pike.

go_ninja84 07-07-2015 05:25 PM

those look pretty cool i might get them if the price is right im already on payment plan for the movie figures from Three Zero and im eager for the their comic figures too

Davin 07-07-2015 05:58 PM

Not feeling these designs. Which is a welcome surprise to my wallet. Too many pricey figs coming out in the near future I'd rather have.

I Crave Pizza No More 07-07-2015 06:34 PM

Can the TMNT market become any more saturated? There's simply too much stuff to keep up with. As much I hate to pass on something from Kevin himself, I just don't have any connection to these designs and will likely pass unless they're like $20 each, which isn't happening. No space to put all this stuff anymore.

Redrumh2o 07-07-2015 06:36 PM

Whew!!!!! Easy pass

ProactiveMan 07-07-2015 07:28 PM

I'd love to have these. I pretty much only buy the four turtles when a new incarnation or different style comes out these days, and these are very different. I think they would look pretty cool in my collection.

Having said that, designer figures at 1/6 scale sounds like they may be pricey, and I'd probably pass if I couldn't afford all four.

As for the designs, I think they're a bit overdone and I wouldn't like this to be the Turtles' official, full-time look, but as collectable action-figures they look pretty rad. I'm interested in them because they are different to anything available now.

zodach 07-07-2015 08:15 PM

I must say that I'm disappointed. After getting the already busy designs/outfits for the Bay Turtles I was hoping for something more classic styled. They may not be able to do that because of licensing issues but it looks like Mondo will be getting my money as long as their prices aren't ridiculous.

TheMasterTurtle 07-07-2015 08:44 PM

Cool but not my taste

Lil Karai 07-07-2015 09:49 PM

Man, if these were 6" figures, I'd buy them immediately. I think the only thing I'd consider buying in 1/6 scale would be Henson movie accurate turtles. I dunno. I'll reserve final judgement until I see painted protypes. Nice eye candy for now though.

909 Turtle Fan 07-07-2015 10:07 PM

I like the design, Raphs shell looks like a grenade and Leo looks a lil too skinny and I wish they were in the 6" scale though. So much cool stuff coming out :tgrin:
