Eekeez figures

TMNT Eekeez

Hate to promote a competitor, but I had never heard of this line. Seems better than POPs at least and a decent price point.

They came out a few months ago to very little fanfare. They are interesting figures, about the size of a Pop! Vinyl. But with only three characters, you have to really like the Tiki style for these to be very appealing. Plus, they are sort of fragile. When I opened my set, the Leo figure fell less than a foot and hit the table causing the tail to his mask to break.

Huh...this is the first I saw of them. Thanks for sharing.

There's also a Wondercon exclusive Leonardo that exists.

Here's a current eBay listing for one:

Haha, sorry!

I'm tempted to snag him, but there's other stuff Ive had my eye on so these guys aren't really a priority at the moment...especially for the price.

Since the Wondercon exclusive is no longer available through that eBay link...here's another link to see the exclusive Leo Eekeez figure:

I have always been a big fan of tiki motifs, but these aren't carrying the theme strong enough for me to wanna buy one. They're neat, though. I certainly wouldn't mind being gifted Splinter...

Haha, I'm such a sucker for funny looking merchandise highlighting the TMNT supporting cast. Everybody pumps out stuff featuring the 4 turtles, but Splinter designs are always more memorable to me.

Precisely, stuff like that's not too common. It has gotten better, but there's still a lot of room for improvement in terms of making merch of non-turtle characters.
