They look perfect to me, Bebop being the most amazing and spot on. All except Mutagen man, not enough improvements over the old figure, not really an "ultimate" version.
Those Thundercats figures up there look great as well!

Even the new Shredder can’t stand.

Should Bebop and Mutagen Man both come with alternate heads?

Seymour Gutz from the IDW comic would be the second head.

Bebop is perfect as it is, the head is great. A second head would be unnecessary, unless they come up with something interesting.
Mutagen man... has no head

The brown Bebop head (from the hard-head Bebop) would have been a nice touch.

Pixel Dan reported that Bebop WILL have an alternate non-pink head.

Also Muckman is in Wave 3.

Now we have to play the waiting game to see what Bebop’s second head will look like. A repaint of the regular head or a different design of Bebop’s head. The third wave will be up for pre-order in June, so photos should surface before then.

Same head, just painted differently.

Kinda weird that the display Shredder is already having QC issues. Granted, it's a prototype ... but sheesh.

It's pretty common for raw protos to have breakages.

However it looks really sloppy to just...lay him down. Usually when it happens for shows, they still glue it back, or have stands, or have a way to at least prop them up a bit.

Usually companies have the foresight to keep a few supplies like that on hand just FOR breakages for display. It happens too often with resin stuff.

honestly i love that these are lighter on articulation. it goes well with the size, the paint deco, and the fact that they're going for the weirder mutants (which is AMAZING). i plan on displaying all the various mutants as like a set of sofubi/kaiju-like statues. the sculpts look incredible. i hope they continue to be bulkier like the bebop and mutagen man.

muckman is going to be unreal. gives me hope we'll see some other weirdos like... (list coming!):

Ray Fillet
Wingnut & Screwloose
Scumbug
Antrax
Mondo Gecko
Leatherhead
Metalhead
Slash
Triceraton
Chromedome

With nice to haves:

Merdude
Half court
Hothead
Doctor El
Sergeant Bananas
Dirtbag
Groundchuck
Pizza face
Scrach
Scaletail

i will support this line as long as they continue pumping out the weirdos. long live this line, for real.

I know I’m just a hater talking to the super7 fanboys, but man each time an interview with Brian comes out I just pull further away from purchasing their products. He and Super7 seem like a real unorganized mess with no real sense of direction. On the surface listening to fans is nice, but you should’ve properly developed the product in the first place. And it’s always excuses for everything. How about you act like a real toy company in the year 2020 and get your act together. Rant over

Sounds like Super7 plans are to do every figure from the original TMNT line

Super7 isn't perfect, but man, I love hearing Brian talk about his passion for toylines.

Him talking about not just wanting to do the 4 turtles yet again, but immediately wanted to do weird and odd things - just can't agree more. A decade of 99% of just the turtles with noone committing to a line was disheartening.

Yeah I am glad they are wanting to make the oddball characters especially since it was such a special part of the original playmates line. I am happy with waiting 4 waves to get each Turtle.

I am so excited to get these figures, I have all of them pre ordered
