It all makes sense with Snakeweed now. Playmates are geniuses who knew? If you look at Snakeweed in box, you see a joint that has to be his legs for knee articulation because where else could it go. In other pictures you see he appears to have no knee joints, but you always see some plastic hanging off on where his legs connect. This means that what they did is make his legs in a interesting way so that when his legs are connected, the knee joints are now hidden. Playmates made hidden knee joints on Snakeweed of all figures?! They sure are improving the quality of their villains and now they might get back to doing the right thing.

Newtralizer looks hot! I wonder if he's a villain or hero?

This really sums up my theory in this picture, you see the joint again and now you can see the yellow from his leg is on that piece. I can't believe they managed to make hidden knee joints and they also created a great illusion that most people I bet will notice very soon.

What I love about Newtralizer is that he looks like a parody of Liefeld Cable and Punisher. Anyone else see that?

Yeah, I see the Punisher design cues as well. In fact, that makes me think that he IS a mutated version of The Pulverizer from this week's episode. The name makes me think that he'll be a Punisher parody, basically some Turtle-worshipping wannabe vigilante with a hilariously exaggerated costume that annoys the crap out of the boys in green until he gets oozed up. That's my theory, at least.

This was on my Facebook - Leatherhead in packaging!

Spoiler:

It doesn't look like LH has knee articulation though.

I don't think it's a far fetched birthday wish. could happen. oh i forgot to mention leatherhead... he should be in the same cases... this is exciting :3 I didn't think we'd get leatherhead SO SOON! as soon as I see them popping up on ebay i'm going store-to-store bugging the employees about cases in the back. why shouldn't I? That's how the scalpers do it

I was looking at playmates upcoming figures on there direct Order form ( my dad sells the figures in his store) and it said under " tmnt cockroach ( chong)" " tmnt wasp" it's just a placeholder name but any speculation on what it is?

No I can't post pics, playmates wants to keep it secret.

I don't know... maybe it's something new... there was an episode where april turned into a wasp in the OT, right? That's the only wasp related thing I can think of...

We did see concept art for Wingnut and Screwloose but screwloose is a mosquito not a wasp... but it's kinda close...

That's very interesting but I wonder if it's just an incorrect listing of some kind... I can't think of any possible character it could mean?

Maybe when baxter finally mutates, in this version he mutates with a wasp and not a fly?

Or maybe...?

well, maybe, but he's also a mosquito... at least he was back then.

So yeah I'm thinking potential new character. Did the listing have a price? Was it a basic figure or something else?
