Right before 5k reopened pre-orders for Leo, they posted on instagram showing concept art for wave 2 which looks to be Donny and Splinter.

Just checked their Insta, couldn't see any Donnie shots? EDIT: Nothing Google image search couldn't sort out. Think I'll just stick to getting Leo.

I've pre-ordered Leo, and seeing the latest images makes me even more excited. This is potentially going to be my personal TMNT crown jewel, he looks so damn awesome. THIS is what live action TMNT should be based on (without the samurai stuff)! Damn you Michael Bay!

While I agree with you, the snubbing of Michael Bay is uncalled for. His designs were appropriate (and no he didn't ruin anyone's childhood, there's like a zillion looks for the TMNT bros) and the most realistic to date, he captured the essence of turtle personalities (which is core to any successful film revolving around them) and redeemed himself by the second movie. It's a shame that mob mentality can ruin the prospects of franchises with potential. Folks are superficial, they didn't like the fact that the script was based on their alien roots and that they looked awesomebro-ish. No substantive gripes.

Looks like it's a race to see who gets released first....Leatherhead or Leo.

I wonder if the swords (?) at his hip are going to be more fleshed out.

I pre-ordered "Leo"... and cancelled.
Pre-ordered "Leatherhead"... and cancelled.

But, if "Splinter" comes with those four turtles, I can totally justify this as a standalone piece.

Until they are in hand, anything can happen. But as of this preview, I could not possibly be more happy with that Splinter. And the four baby turtles and ooze canister are fantastic bonuses. I really love it.

Leo was $5 deposit on a $50 item, very reasonable if you ask me. I hope Splinter is closer to that price than the Leatherhead price, but I'll pay either price point.

Here is hoping that Leo ships soon so people can start getting this line in hand and forming impressions and expectations for the rest of the figures before we have to plop down too many 5 notes for pre-orders.

Don pre-order next, I hope?

After the fantastic looking Leo, Don, Leatherhead and Splinter... I am really curious what they have in store for Mikey and Raph... not to mention Shredder and so many others. Really like the art design on these.

I agree on the getting the first order in hand. Hope they request the 50USD soon, I'm not planning on getting any more preorders on this line until I see Leo.

If he turns out as good as I hope then he might become my favourite TMNT figure I own...

I sent Fury Toys an update request, they came back to me saying Leo (Assassin Spring) should be ready around October ~ November time.

I'm sure they originally stated Summer 2022. I know these things fall behind, it happens with "the best" toy manufacturers.

I would just like to get this in hand before ordering any more Fury Toys. Splinter looks great, but I'll hang on until I see Leo first.

Hoping that the in package pics mean that I'll have a gator-man in my hands soon.
