That list sums it up and definitely add Raph and Mikey's patrol buggies. I picked up the leo and Donnie one's for £9.99 thanks to hero but cant find these anywhere.

Here is a copy of the email from flair:

Dear Mark,

Napoleons Bonafrog and Mondo Geko in the U.K for 2016.

Sorry for any inconvenience caused.

Why bother showing things at Toy Fair and listing them in the friggin' catalogue if they're not gonna release them?

I hate how the UK always gets shafted when it comes to toys.

I hope Donnie will get released this time, but I fear the worst.
I got an estimated arrivel date of March 18 2016 - March 24 2016 for some reason.

I did receive Leo with Triceratops at last today.

That confirms further were getting these solo. No packshots yet, but I'm sure the listings will be updated with them. Can then see if these will have the boots or not. Smyths are currently using the stock images Target had for the 5pk.

Speaking of Target. They now ship to the UK. Current promotion has £15 off any orders of up to £70 or over with the code UKSHIP.

Picked up DX Leo, Fugitoid, Mozar and redeco Mikey from Smyths today. I wonder if anyone has realised that the UK edition of the redeco turtles don't have the initial on their belt buckles...

There are some reviews on Amazon UK that also mention the belts.
I wonder why they did that.

I believe the later US releases of the redecos have no belt initials either.

I noticed that Dojo Donnie is in stock on Amazon!
Mine has not shipped yet, but I guess he's finally been released!

Dang, beat me to it! Popped into my local Entertainer store on the way home from work. Noticed a large cardboard TMNT stand & it had all Mega Blok sets reduced. Everything! They had 3 big sets: Baxters Lab, Donnie & Casey with the car & Leo in the sewer. Plus 2 small Raph & Mikey sets as well as blind bags.

I've never seen the Mega Blok figs before or even shown much interest on here but I have to say I think they're great! Especially for the reduced price!

I picked up the small Raph & skateboard set for £3.33 & a blind bag for £1 something. Got a standard foot ninja so pleased with what I got!

By the way, what is the secret ultra rare mystery figure they show in the blind bags? I'm guessing it's either splinter or April?

The 'rare' fig is Robotic Foot Soldier. Great to finally see this line in The Entertainer and already on reduction.

Any of you guys know the best way to ship turtles toys to the UK from the States? Does target ship? If had a look on their site but can't find any details. I'm trying to get napoleon, mondo and a couple of vehicles that weren't released over here.

Target's just started shipping over here, and TRU US ship most of their stuff over here too, although it can be pricey when you factor in customs fees and such.

Even in the U.S., I've found Space April hard to come by around my area.

I've frequently a lot of stores this month checking for new TMNT figures, and Space April seems to be among the rarer ones at this point. Fugitoid and the Space Turtles are fairly common (maybe one or two packs each) in the Wal-Mart, Target, and Toys R' Us stores I visited. Space Casey seems to be either hit or miss, but he's definitely out there, and I think Dregg has about the same commonality. For all my searching, only today did I finally find a Space April in an outlying Toys R' Us store. I wasn't really interested in the Robug, but from what I can tell, that one may be comparable to Space April though perhaps a bit more elusive.

I was really happy that the TRU employee gave me a "Buy 1, Get 1 40% Off" deal with the Space April and Space Casey figures. That was a nice surprise, but I don't know if that deal applies to all TMNT toys across the stores. I was under the impression it applied only to the TMNT MegaBloks line.
