There's no need to complain about classic stuff coming out. For real. There is so much new stuff coming out now, and you can go anyehere and get it. Let the franchise live. It's not all about one thing. How are you gonna complain about the things that started it all getting their due. I've never once harassed anybody on here. And if everyone's entitled to their opinions then don't call me out? Haha c'mon man. I don't pick people out I just comment on here the majority of the time on here I'm nice. Probably one of the most level headed people on here. It just really really annoying people complaining about past turtles getting their due.

While I won't be personally buying these, it's pretty cool they are joining their 80s lineup.

Good to see more licensed stuff. Not a fan of the product line, never liked the faces on these things. But I know some people can't stand LEGO while I personally love it As long as everyone is happy

Also there's still stuff from 2k3 you can get online and playmates just realized the movie turtles. Seriously you're overplaying it. Just stop kid. It's so annoying hearing you complain about classic figures coming out when all I see in the stores and the new like is nick this and nick that. Seriously no reason to complain. If anything people should be complaining they aren't making enough old stuff!
That's a bottle opener, it has nothing to do with the minimates...if you click the link in the first post you'll see that the minimate is in the corner of that picture, no pictures were allowed. They're styled after the Nick series.

Good times! Love minimates, got a couple Batmans (Batmen?) and did have a wee collection of Marvel ones (since sold on due to money issues and space constraints) so looking forward to this!

Diamond Select published their new catalog. No pics or prices but they're OT styled.

siiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiigh

Though they didn't specifically say OT, they said "classic appearances."
Holding out hope for a red bandanna Mirage box set.

That, I would probably go for. OT turtles? Pass. Unless by some chance they actually look like the OT, unlike all this 'classic' crap we've gotten with neon skin & whatnot.

I'm getting a bit tired of Nu-merc based off FW. POP figures, kidrobot and now minimates. Good thing the capsule figures from Japan is based off the new toon.

It seemed a bit snarky the way a few of you said it was the nick and not another form of the turtles. Just felt I deserved some reprimands. No not instigating. Just nice to be right. Give credit where credit is due.

I didn't call you out for anything, nor was I snarky. Stop dragging me into your nonsense.

So you're saying that because you hate the Nick show,
These and all merch is automatically OT,
and that you deserve praise.
Okay.
You were right. It was OT.
There you go.

I was right it had nothing to do with my hate for the show. I didn't say anything new is gonna be OT, I just said this would be and It was, but some snarky remarks by a hot head with an inferiority complex and need for acceptance among others made some questionable remarks towards me because they thought they were right, and probably a bit of a personal issue in there as well. Give credit where credit is do. Accept when you're wrong. That's how life works.

Someone accepting when they're wrong doesn't mean they should bow down before you dude, be humble...

It's weird that you say that, because I'm thinking the same thing. I never collected Battle Beasts as a kid, but those are the first Minimates I could almost see myself buying.

I think just the standard Minimate design is horribly unappealing, visually. It's like someone took a marionette from the Sound of Music and tried to make it 'hip' with a paint application. They just end up looking... kinda ugly. *shrugs*

I like the idea of a mini Ninja Turtle Universe, just not the Diamond Select part.

Thank you to Timmetry for posting these in the Nick merchandise thread, just putting them here as well for those who don't check that thread.
