I'm pretty sure I have some reference... will have to dig around. It's essentially a 90s fever dream zebra pattern of black and metallic/shiny silver.

I wish I could share the pictures but I was told I cannot share them yet I'm sorry. When he gives me the ok I will share them immediately.

Awesome thanks this seems to be the toughest part of his outfit to figure out for 1/4 scale. Shredder is actually being sculpted in 1/6 scale then will be scaled up to 1/4.

I can totally see that as well!

That's interesting. They're going to scale it up using a 3D printer or something?

Coro has more Trenchcoat Raphael and Casey Jones prop replica masks stocked, so while these were supposedly delayed, maybe they are trying to drop them by Christmas. Word on the street is that NECA has received their boxed Trenchcoat Raphael sample and he will ship anytime.

Yep ... I'm not sure when that is going to drop as that was expected in an "accessory" pack that included Mikey's nunchuck hand.

As a kid, I always just assumed it was some kind of hybrid trashbag-cape. As ridiculous as it sounds, I thought it was sort of cool. It just fit the aesthetic I suppose.

The Shredder was taking the children from home's in which they were considered trash and treasuring them as part of his Foot Clan. There.

Anyone know of any more updates for these guys? I know Trevor has been working on the sculpts, but I'm way too excited and hoping for some news soon!

Like most have said already, I'm assuming Toy Fair at this point.

It is slated for March. You can pre-order it from Coro, or from me on my eBay page.

Disappointing that we haven't seen any prototype pictures yet.

Just an FYI my site, SpaceMonkeyToys.com, is moving to a free shipping model in the US for 2018 and beyond. You can see the details on my home page. Take advantage of this for the 1/4 scale stuff you might need or any other awesome TMNT stuff. The accessory packs are now available there.

The order cut off from NECA is long past. If they re-supply I can order more if there is a demand. I basically carry this stuff for myself and my dromers-it doesnt really fit my marvel legends stuff which is my primary business.

As a seller this stuff is hit or miss. I sold a ton of Casey masks but only one Ooze canister. I hope you'll order a lot of Shredders and Foot Soldiers when they become available for pre-order.

I plan to do 10-20 of shredder depending on how it turns out, but wont go over 10 on the foot.

Curious if anyone has any defective issues with their Henson Turtles?

I pre-ordered and received all 4 directly from Entertainment Earth over he last year and a half. They've been great - even replacing my Leonardo who had a paint rub from the factory.

I recently noticed my Raphael has developed moisture on the inside of the package. All 4 were left at my doorstep - completely in the shade, all 4 have been stored in the same place in my apartment - not in any direct, or really any indirect sunlight - and he's the only one that's developed this.

I have an email out to EE customer service to see if they would offer a replacement when the next batch is released in February - but am prepared for them not to offer that as well. No harm in asking. If not, I might reach out directly to NECA.

My assumption is somewhere in the manufacturing/distribution/shipping process - he was left in a very hot place for a long time and some degradation to the plastic/paint occured? Just curious if it happened to others, etc.

A little over a month away from Toy Fair where I'm sure we'll see some new updates on the Shredder and the Foot!

Not so much with these figures as I've opened all of them ... but something similar happened to one of my Dark Knight collection Movie Masters figures when I left them in the box. The Joker started getting some weird moisture throughout his right leg and arm and it's still pretty bad actually. I'm not the expert, but that situation can just happen sometimes from what I understand.

Could you guys shove some tiny silica gel packets without breaking the tape or messing up the boxes? Might help with the moisture.

I am surprised we haven't gotten any WIP pics yet in all honesty.

ToyFair next month. I'd expect to see reveals then. Or at least some updates.
