NEW set of TMNT statues from Sideshow



Man all these statues and turtle collectibles coming out is getting crazy. I always liked turtles because it was manageable to collect but in the past few years it's just gotten away from me. The teaser is cool. Similar to the other sideshow set they're a fresh interpretation and not based on previous material.

Meh, I'm burnt out on all the TMNT stuff. There's simply too much to keep up with, or to care about.

Seems like such a short time ago that being a TMNT completionist was relatively easy. Anymore, it's like a car payment that never goes away.

The teaser doesn't do much for me, honestly. I have the Playmates statues, I have the Sideshow coms, and I'm leaning towards the Prime 1 Henson set. I have the Mondo set on order. What other iteration of turtles do I need, short of a legitimate set of toon turtles statues?

They look to be based off of this print they are doing.

Nice catch!

And yeah, I hear you I Crave Pizza No More. Whens enough enough? I have the Playmates ones, the Sideshow ones(+2 Mousers), and I skipped out on the Platinum Dunes movie statues for obvious reasons, but the Jim Henson designs have me very interested.

And you know where they all are? In my closet, in a box Until I have good enough space for them, there is where they'll remain.

These new ones look very cool, but I gotta draw the line somewhere. I'm thinking the lines here.

Here is another site that has an actual picture of the new Sideshow Raphael statue in the top left hand corner.

http://www.sideshowtoy.com/brands/te...les/?ref=crumb

It's definitely a more realistic imagining of the turtles this time around. A lot of nice textures on the bandana, wraps, and belts as well as the skin. I'm up in the air about getting any of these for now until I see a full reveal.

They look awesome, me want!

But seriously, they need to stop pumping out TMNT collectibles, we're being way too spoiled at the moment. At least give us some time to breathe before we get more collectibles to drowl over.

Maybe I'm alone in this, but I can't imagine paying over 2 grand for 4 TMNT statues. You could get an amazing TMNT piece of art instead, hell you could probably get a movie prop too.

I would consider those statues to be an amazing piece of TMNT art.

I'm loving all of these statue lines. They are worth every penny. Marvel and DC release statues like this all of the time, through Sideshow, and sometimes for more than $500. I have never encountered a TMNT quality piece which had a completely absurd price tag. Plus, the value of these will go up.

I finally decided to switch to only Donatello for these high end pieces. I'd like to have them all, but I'd rather have 1 of each compared to missing some all together.

At least it allows me to grab the Prime 1 Henson Donnie now.

I'll just stick to Mondo for my full set as I've already gotten all those. I hope they continue that for years to come.

They're definitely cool, but $2K for a mass-produced piece of art is a bit nuts. They're like really nice prints. Personally, $50ish isn't bad for a cool figure or statue. Personally, when the price starts hitting three and four-figures, a TMNT piece better have pretty strong ties to the movies or early comics.

There's obviously a market for mass-produced pieces at that price point, though. Certain TMNT Mondo prints sell for crazy amounts of money!

This looks like an attempt at Rapoza?

Kinda odd looking. iI was never a fan of his style, so you mileage may something something...


EDIT: I need to learn to read.

It's not $2K for a piece of art though. It's four pieces. And it is four huge pieces, that connect into an even more huge piece. But you also have the option of just getting any one of the four and it will still be an amazing centerpiece. I understand how it can be tough to imagine being able or willing to drop that kind of money for anything that isn't a form of transportation or a home, but if you ever get a chance to see any of these in person, the idea of suggesting a price tag of $50 will seem like a bad joke. You still may not immediately run out to sell a kidney for them. But you will understand why they carry a hefty price.

I love that Sideshow is still supporting the TMNT brand, but the style of these doesn't appeal to me at all. Easy pass.
