Yeah, we've kinda discussed what info we have.

The helmet might be removable on the final product which is nice, as long as NT-02 don't suffer small head syndrome or the helmet looks too big to scimitars the head, which is unfortunate things that can happen with figures that have removable helmets like that.

Evilcat, do you find that amount of discussion corresponds with sales?

For what it's worth, I personally don't mind the "kevlar" style sculpting throughout the armor.

People keep asking for it to be removed, but I feel as though the design would be too plain without at least SOME such detail.

Personally, I'm done discussing this figure. I'm ready to put my $ where my mouth is! As others have mentioned, there aren't any details to discuss that we haven't already touched on.

I honestly do not know if it really corresponding with sales. From NJCC to many other convention I been to, a lot of people love this new take on design. Also, people that came and talked to me, also seems to love the size too. After all Teen AGE turtles are Teenager, from the cartoon they are about a full head shorter than April. April is not that tall. So it makes sense for shredder to be sizable compare to teenagers, he is after all a marshal art master. I have seen all kind of talk about this figure, but in all honesty, I think this shred will find love in people who appreciate it. And from the endless inquiry i get on FB asking about him, I think there is a fair amount of people out there.

I think the key here is, no one figure is perfect for every one.

From my experience, it's the people who have zero input that don't actually buy stuff. They think it's perfect because they have no plans of dropping $100+ on it.

Has anyone purchased both Cerebral figures, the original and the metallic versions? If someone has purchased both could we possibly see a side by side.

Well I'm really happy they've shrunk him down, the original size was WAY too big. I actually can consider buying it now.

Doesn't look like they've changed anything else though, which is disappointing. At this point I'm undecided, as it still looks pretty far away from the cartoon (a lot further away than Krang did). If they make more changes and bring it closer to the cartoon then I might get it.

Evilcat005 - do you know if First Gokin are making more changes, other than size? I seem to remember a while back they acknowledged the complaints about the overdetailing on the torso and legs, so I was expecting they'd at least have made some changes there.

I just got the vac metal version in the mail yesterday. I'll try to post side by side comparisons this weekend.

Hoping we get some more sneak peaks of Shredder soon! Did we hear that pre-orders were going up in June or was the actual release in June for Shredder?

I honestly didn't know they are shrinking the size of Shredder. Maybe you guys should confirmed with the person who post the photo with shrink size and make sure it is not photo shopped. To my knowledge no change in size was made.

Interesting..... I'm still excited for this figure either way. Thanks again for providing that update.

What are the plans for releasing the Bubble Walker edition of "Krang"? I know that there was a blueprint release for it. It's something I'm much more interested in having, personally, over the android. And maybe a little cheaper?

Since Shredder was bumped from NT-03 to NT-02, I'd recon it's safe to assume the Bubble Walker is next in line if Shredder does well.

Will you be attending NJCC in August? I'm getting a table and I've wanted to pick up this Krang for a while now but I've been dragging my feet on this due to the fear this would be the only TMNT figure Gokin would release.
