I feel the same way. Nothing appeals to me and my wallet is thankful.

Interesting to notice the differences between my Leo & yours, DVD.



The biggest omission is that the retail versions lack their unique markings... The buckle on my Leo's belt is cast in green, whereas yours has green paint apps over blue plastic. & my mystic sword has a painted handle, yours does not. I see that Leo's regular sword is in two colors but all of Mikey's are solid. I wonder if any other characters will have multi-colored weapons in the end.

Lovely more money to save and give to companies that put effort into their stuff IE Neca and Hasbro for Marvel Legends.

oh lame... Won't the retail figures have their markings, looks like Mikey is missing his spots and Leo is lacking his yellow stripes.

I'm wondering if the baggie of pizza points I have from the 90's will still be valid. And what is the exchange rate?

good one!


In all seriousness though I am curious if it will be mail in orders. My guess is it won’t be a cut and mail.

I think it will be a code you enter online and get something mailed. Or not even that.

It will be extremely lame if a certain amount of pizza points only gets you access to a digit code to unlock a digital prize such as a game.

I don’t even think cereal boxes have actually physical prizes anymore. All digital.

I was comparing what I got with what Playmates show.

The advert:


The release..


In Leo’s case, he gets a single colored skateboard, no paired wheels, and the mystic sword was intended to was a non translucent handle. Otherwise the figure itself matches up to the offering on Playmates site.
Looks like Powder got the better mystic sword.
And answering the question about colored accessories: all weapons on the other figures are solid colors. Except the mutant maker: some eye detailing on the mouser looking extras.

What do the “details inside” say about the Pizza Points? Also did it come with a checklist advertising the other figures? Would you mind posting the checklist along with what pizza point info is provided? Thanks dude!

It really was my intention not to get anything from this line.
I wasnít impressed with the initial promo poster for the show ... but...
The toy fair reveals looked good. The vehicles and the lair looked amazing.
Still, I wasnít going to buy any of it.
That did not last. As soon as I was shown them, in the flesh so to speak, I was all over them.
The lair is a beast. I have the 2012 and movie Laura (practically identical) but both are dismantled and boxed away. I am now pretty sure when I get s text saying Ďdo you want the lair?í - Iíll say yes !! Ha ha!! Iím weak.

It sure is!!!
What is a bit frustrating is that I canít keep it all out on display.
I have 100s of figures and vehicles in storage boxes that take up a room on their own!!
Through this 2012 range I was determined to keep all the figures in pack and displayed on the wall - well, they just kept coming out!!
Eventually, I decided that I had to open them. I actually enjoyed that, opening a couple hundred action figures over a weekend (I opened up a lot of my classics at that time as well.)
This time around, Iím just opening them right away, but keeping the initial set of Turtles in pack.
