LOL what MOD's? Also, I wasn't directing that at any one person, just at the group. 5 posts straight of business dealings can get annoying since there is an entire section of the forum dedicated to it. Like I said, a respectful request. No need to get defensive and throw pot shots.

I preordered my Mikey today! Looking forward to getting Leo in June, hopefully.

I'm hoping we'll see some definitive announcements from NECA at SDCC regarding the baby Henson turtles and/or the accessory pack they've hinted at.
Their promo pics for Mikey today included the pork rinds bag which I think will be part of the accessories pack if they decide to release it.

Is Leo pushed back to June? I didn't remember seeing anything about that

I was hoping to get a baby turtle with Mike or Leo but that's not the case. The pork bag of rinds is an accessory of Michelangelo, see link below.

In my opinion the action figures are perfect but as a final product near perfect because of the accessories. I feel that the missing trenchcoat for Raphael is a missed opportunity. I don't get why Raph only has a pizza since he has the smallest weapons. I also preferred a pizzabox for Mike, something like the Movie Stars.

Maybe I'm just nitpicking but because I live in the Netherlands I pay €210/$229 per figure. So unfair

I tried to work out a deal with you for the other three turtles. You weren't really interested.

Oh man, this Mikey looks adorable. Pre-ordered!

I pre-ordered Leo from a store near me and they took a deposit. So I hope they actually got the order in in time.

I'm glad they are all being rereleased as I only ordered Don from EE in March.

I am raising money to replace Tokka's stolen NECA turtles, if anyone is interested.

Holy crap. Kevin Eastman's wife and Ciro contributed. That's love. I bet Tokka is over the friggin' moon.

I generally do not buy larger figures... but I pre-ordered all four on BBTS. I really, really hope they do Splinter like they mentioned. Shredder feels like a given, but Splinter keeps getting shafted anytime a good line of non-Playmates figures comes along. We need a really good Splinter figure!!!


Cool to see the TMNT community coming out to support him. Ciro, Ivey, Eastmans & everyone else, nicely done all!

So glad you did this! I was getting ready to buy him a Raph. Just donated the $15 needed to reach the goal. Great cause for a great dude. So nice to see good people helping out Tokka.

I don't get why you think the size of the weapons has something to do with more accessories.
It's a cost issue where the turtles selling at $99 is already an amazing price. Don't expect a trench coat be possible for that price point.
I am guessing that is why there is an accessory pack coming. To fit in some cool stuff along with the trench coat.

Isn't Mikey supposed to have weapon holsters on his side's? Or were the chucks just hanging from his belt like that?

Also anyone notice the rooftop picture you can see Splinter's hand behind Mikey

If you look at the promo pics for Mikey with the white background it appears that his bandana pig tails are plastic and not fabric like the other pics. I wonder if we just got a glimpse of a smaller scale without even knowing, just a thought.

Just looked over their Facebook again. You might be on to something.

Additional evidence for this:
Here are some pics from the guy who runs the Creative Beast dinosaur Kickstarter project. He also works for NECA and is using the same factory for his project. Notice in the background there appears to be a couple 7" scale Leos next to a large 1/4 scale ooze canister and a 7" scale predator. I added the second pic of the raptors so you can do a size comparison. Each raptor is about 10" long from head to tail and they come with small ground pieces with nests and such.
Anyways take a look and see what you think. I've only seen that particular predator figure in 7" scale so either these are smaller turtles OR they are gonna make that predator in 1/4 scale. Either way it's a little reveal.

Unknown size turtles, eggs, raptor nestlings



Full size raptors that are about 10" long

Ah ok yeah the Jungle Demon Predator and the ooze container were throwing me off! Well I guess we are getting Jungle Demon in 1/4 scale then....

Aside from that it's cool to see glimpses from the factory and the test shots of stuff.

Good eye, but I'm going to gently suggest that it means nothing, because the promo images for Donatello over a year ago also featured an all-plastic headband:
