Neca FTW for me, at all points better and highly screenaccurate. I sold all my vintage TMNT figures to create space and money for the Neca figures. I only want one figure line (only the hard core) based on a show or movie. Diversity is key ;-)

The NECA 1990 figures in both scales are screen accurate, but the FW toon turtles, April, and Casey are not.

They are updated figures for the vintage line, but MOTUC gave us more and something at the time; modern. But I don't really know what could be "modern" here, I'm not a toy designer, but something is missing, maybe?

The price is steep, $45 for one figure is a lot, but I also PO'd Club Grayskull Shadow Weaver on BBTS for $49.99 so I guess I'm a part of the problem giving in to the prices. License (thanks playmates) and limited run will dictate the price, and honestly, these will probably be easier to get then the NECA Fred Wolf figures.

The sprue weapon rack is cute in the display stand, but if we're getting that at $45, we better get a second set of proper weapons that are also painted. Cutting out the weapons yourself for that price is ridiculous.

I do love that they fixed Raph's sai to look like real sai and not weird knives like the vintage figure was sporting, but the holsters are unchanged and look too big. Raph must have his sheath for the katar on his back ( can't find any pics of his back). Hopefully they can also fix Leo's swords to be a katana and a wakizashi, but I'm not holding my breath on that one.

Splinter is pretty rad, super weird seeing the 88 toy design with more articulation, but I love that look. Kinda wish his kimono was soft goods. Pretty neat he comes with multiple arrows and that pre-mutated turtle is the funnies looking turtle yet with it's demonic yellow eyes.

Never been too keen on the robotic mummy Foot Soldier, but this guy does look like the vintage figure with has a better look then the on-screen Foot and hopefully with the better articulation he can stand straight up and do ninja poses. It would be neat if the flail weapon actually had a bendy cord or something.

Baxter is pretty neat, looks just like the vintage figure, down to the fly smacker weapon and I adore the Mouser he comes with, which looks just like the Wacky Action wind-up Mouser. I need a 4-pack of those mousers.

I can't wait to see Shredder, hopefully he'll be fixed a bit so we don't have the goofy caterpillar eyebrows going over his helmet and properly under his helmet :P And I'm more excited for Rocksteady and Bebop based off the toys over the cartoon versions from NECA, and will April have the original 1988 headsculpt or the superior headsculpt that came with the orange and blue variant. As of now I'm fairly certain I'm in for Classics of the 1988 and 1989 basic figures. I would also love to see accessories based of the Gags, Jokes and Crazy Weapons sets.

The head sculpt for the Ultimate Foot Soldier is nothing like that of the 1988 Foot Soldier. The colors for the Ultimate Foot Soldier are accurate, but that’s it.

Has Super7 announced what characters will be in the second wave of their Ultimate TMNT toy line?

I've got the SDCC Collectors Case versions. Those are accurate enough for me. Just like Bebop, Rocksteady, April and Casey. Leatherhead is looking amazing (toon version).

Yeah, the 1990 1:4 TMNT are the holy grail of my collection. I sold the 7" versions simply because they are the same but less impressive

The 1988 Foot Soldier looks angrier than this Super7 version of the original Playmates figure does. The head sculpts for the other figures are 100 percent accurate enough for me.

I don't know, I kind of hope that they at least make his eyebrows bushy and visible, not over the helmet though haha.

Aside from a few, I honestly think I will stick to Neca. I'm at a point in my life where I only display one set of each. I have my Neca Mirage, 1990 and the cartoon set (with the exception of a few that are sentimental or Classic Collection Bebop and Rocksteady with the Neca toon turtles). I like what Super7 is doing but I honestly don't feel the need to buy slightly bigger and improved sculpts of Something I already own. To me, Raph's face and the Foots upright stance are really the only visible differences, and while they're cool I can't justify buying them for the price they are asking. I'll have to see what the rest of these look like before making any big decisions though.

If they release Shirtless Shredder and Casey and they look good enough I may go for them but aside from that the only one I'm really really wanting them to make would be Mondo Gecko.

...Yeeeea, they are. 😳 NECA’s FW Shredder is the only one that isn’t screen accurate.

A yeah, they can be bushy and proud, just not going over the helmet :lol:

They’re at least the closest we’ve gotten, but am I alone in feeling like we’ve yet to see “perfect” representations of the style we see in the Fred Wolf intro? I feel like that’s something I would still love to see.

Are really going to have tear the weapons off a spru.

I could agree with that. It appears to me that NECA sculpts from the original model sheets.

The FW turtles do not show their bottom teeth [if any teeth at all] in the syndicated cartoon.

Classic Collection Michelangelo looks like Michelangelo did in the opening to the 1987 syndicated cartoon. The other Classic Collection figures and NECA 2 pack turtles do not.

Not at all. I suggest you look at the original model sheets again.

wpugh2424 08-18-2019 08:15 PM

I'm amazed with these!
I can't wait to see these in person

They definitely resemble the model sheets.

$45? wow that's a lot. I'm not loving the turtles but I'll at least pick up one of them.

The teeth are not present in any of those model sheets you listed.

These are the model sheets for the original mini-series. You specified yourself the syndicated version- That ain’t what we’re talking about. These resemble the original model sheets down the silhouette.

Also, for real? Dismissing them due to having bottom teeth is ridiculously nitpicky.
