My GB figs arrived in two separate packages, and they were fine.

I always saw Mike as Ray and Raph as Peter.

Usagi figures had to come out of the boxes.
Glad I finally decided to open up all these (well a whole bunch anyway) figures in my collection.
Opening 25 Year old figures is pretty cool. Haha.

Anyways, here are the Usagi figures.



Iím now tempted to chase the comic con version, simply bescause itís a well presented piece- and that one wouldnít be opened!!

I've seen the four Monster Turtles figures in stores around me, but I've passed a couple times due to some paint errors on Werewolf Mikey and an apparent left shoulder joint damage on Mummy Leo. I currently have decent looking figures of Vampire Raph, Franken Don, and Werewolf Mikey, and I think they probably are among the best toys Playmates has released since the first wave of the Nick line and maybe the Space Turtles set. They are really fun as subtle holiday decorations. Anybody finding the "Monster Hunter" versions of Leo and Raph? They kinda look like the original figures with Van Helsing clothes on them. Still cool, just not near as memorable.

Definitely gives one a certain high, IMO. Totally nostalgic sense-memory typa stuff. I had filled a few holes in my collection some years back with super cheap carded figures. Mostly turtle variants. Popping them open (with more care than back in the day, of course) is a real trip. You can feel/see first hand just how good their quality was all those years ago.

Thatís the real truth. The quality of the old, original lines were superior in every way.
I collect 1:6 figures from Hot Toys and the like. Opening these, the quality is far superior to anything from 25 years ago, and over the past decade , even these have become insanely good. Pity the same canít be said of the playmates action figures. Iím not saying I donít like them: I do. Itís just they canít compete in quality to their Ďclassicí counterparts.

I got my set of 4 TMNT Ghostbusters figures via ups and the boxes weren't damaged at all.

Yeah, it's luck of the draw - 1 of my seats was beat up, 1 set was mint (except for one corner ding).

Found some at a real store yesterday, had Raph/Mike/Don. The boxes on those were beat up too so it seems like Target may have had quite a bit of damaged stock somehow. Maybe they were returns from an online order, heh.

I'm glad I got these Ghostbuster TMNT figures at Target.com because I still haven't seen them in any of the Targets I gone too. And the funny thing is there is a shelf sticker for them shared with the WWE ones so if you find them in store, you might get them for 15.99 plus tax because they are sale, lol

I wish the Turtles Ghostbusters looked like the ones in the IDW comic now instead of just being Turtles cosplaying.

I think they are unique but I agree the idw ones would be ideal

Pretty sure I saw knock out Leo at Big Lots over the weekend.

I went ahead and imported Monster Hunter Raph, 80's Leo, and 80's Bebop from Amazon UK because I have not been seeing them around me.

The UK versions are identical to the US versions, except for the US barcode has been struck thru with marker and a white Flair branded sticker with UK barcode has been put over the top of the entire bottom side of the bubble insert card. I peeled the sticker up fairly easily but when it got to the barcode and I saw the marker I stopped because it was starting to pull up some of the marker ink.

Amazon UK didn't ship them very well so the cards were in pretty poor shape, but I expected and was OK with that since I was opening them.

I still hope to someday find them in the US, so I can get mint-in-package versions to keep with my carded set (I have a set loose and a set carded). But I am not overly optimistic at this point that they will turn up in my neck of the woods.

In case anyone is curious, they cost me $14 and change per figure to import, including shipping. I did order multiples of each, got 4 Leos for potentially customizing all 4 undercover turtles. This was worth it to me as opposed to continuing to drive all over the place after turning up nothing for months now.
