Here are the basic figures that I have so far:


The foot soldier is the weakest figure.
I really like the Maker of Mutants. Lots of stuff going on there, and if course Meat Sweats is pretty cool.
The figures are fairly substantial, and each is interesting, visually.

Always hugely excited for your pics DVD.

That Splinter is really hard to love though... and I'm trying soooo hard...

Could you give us a pic of Splinter's sword unsheathed? If nothing else I can at least say I'm glad to see the staff-sword concept returning.

I donít think the Squad link is up yet.
The toys are scheduled for an October release, so it should be active around that time.

Thanks for all the great pics and info, DVD!

I've got mixed feelings about what we've learned of the show, but the figures look awesome to me. I wish the Turtles had their markings, but I think that's asking a bit much. All the accessories look fun and Mikey comes with stickers for his board! The Turtle Tank and sewer lair look dope too. Might be my first vehicle and playset in a LONG time. Thanks again, DVD.

Youíre welcome.
Yeah , not too sure about the new show, as it looks like a radical departure from anything thatís gone before.
2 x 10 minute Ďshortsí per episode!! Time will tell,
The 10-11 min JL Action show turned out nicely, and I found it quite amusing. I wasnít looking forward to it, as I had really liked the previous JL (more serious) shows. I canít see these 10 min TNNT being serious, at all.

Anyways, I do like the figures.
Hereís how the loose set are displayed. The packaged set will build up on the vacant pegs left behind after opening (nearly) all of the 2012 line!!

The sheer size of Splinter is confusing every time I see him The promo pics made him look so much smaller and it's been ingrained in my mind.

Thanks for the additional Splinter pics. He can hold the staff-sword pretty well! Oh and it's dual molded... brown wood hilt and metal blade. That's an improvement over some past splinter swords.

Well, here is the way I see it. I'm getting the first wave of the toys, for sure. If I don't like the show, or if the show is a huge failure and gets cancelled in a year or two... at least they tried something a little different, and these turtle toys will join my collection as something of a curiosity.

And like Pixel Dan very correctly pointed out... rather you like the show or not, if the show does well with kids and they sell a lot of toys, it's good for older fans no matter what. Because it keeps the license hot and in people's minds... and opens up a lot of doors for adult collector stuff to come out that's in the design style of more preferred incarnations.

Personally... I really hope someone does a line of IDW TMNT toys someday, because it's clearly one of the most hugely untapped areas of the fandom and could be the source of a lot of great figures.

I've been thinking/feeling/saying this since Mateus Santolouco's first run for IDW. His character designs are SO DOPE. His Turtles, Splinter, Casey, Shredder, Koya, Bludgeon, and Leatherhead would be great additions to a TMNT collection.

I want Rise to do well for multiple reasons - a big one being that it keeps the Turtles in the pop culture lexicon and keeps people wanting to do rad stuff with them (like Pixel Dan pointed out as Zulithe referenced). The other reason is 'cos I'm of the mind state that different Turtles are better than no Turtles.

Well that and wanting something to fail just because you don't care for it is a pretty big dick move.

Thanks so much for providing all the great pics, DVD! I'm really digging April, but I think I might skip on the Tron looking lightcycles. I was more excited about them when they were first introduced.

The cycles are cool. If you end up getting the tank, these two complement it well in creating an Uber Turtle Tank. And you get the two exc figures.

Just saw the premiere date for the show is in September, surprised these donít look to be hitting shelves in advance. I could have sworn that the 2012 line was out a good 1-2 months earlier.
