That is just way too much texture.

And why does Raph have blue tiger stripes? What the heck is that supposed to be?

Nature has layers of complexity, but they have order to them.

This is just chaos. Abstract, random bits of stuff. These look like they were painted by Jackson Pollock...or Tokka.

I was going to say...it's supposed to be a rising sun flag, red and white right?

Is it because the rising sun is linked to WWII?

ehhh-- its a NO for me.
I appreciate the detailing, but they went overboard on that skin texture, was that a side effect on the Mutation?

with all the other tMNt Items and Merch coming out, Shi FIG arts, Mondo, NECA,3 Zero movie turtles, First Gokin etc etc, Im not sure that these will sell that well, especially at that 200 dollar price point.....sorry Eastman.

Yeah, no, I'm good on that. Better things to do with a grand.

Yeah, no offense to fans of his style but those look awful. The price is ridiculous to boot.

Yeah I was wondering if this was a result of low preorder numbers.
I actually like Don and Raph, just waiting till they show up. Leo and Mikey always looked bad to me.

I don't think there has ever been such negative consensus about any other TMNT figure before on this forums. I can see these having a small niche a few years back, but today the market is just loaded with excellent products at a much more reasonable price.

If they were $25 figures from NECA in a 1/12 scale, people'd probably be a lot kinder.

200$ 6-7" figure would've been pretty pricey.

Honestly, I do like the Kevin Eastman are and head sculpts
But I can totally see these work as a 1/12 scale just not the mix media 1:6 scale.

obviously the price shouldn't stay the same if they were shrunk down in size.
