The market is so oversaturated right now. It's good in the sense that we have lots of choices, but at a certain point collectors get maxed out in terms of budget, space, and enthusiasm.

Maybe down the line they'll make some more standard NECA 7" figures.
If it's like their other 1/4 scale stuff... they don't have the rights for 6"-7" figures.

Nice I speculated that was the case. Do you have a source we can see?

I spoke to Trevor today about this line they are releasing q2 2016 all 4 are being made he's currently finishing the Leo sculpture. These will stand around 16 inches tall and probably cost around 100 each. I'm in for all 4 for sure although I prefer 1/6 scale as well. These are fully articulated as well.

As I posted earlier, it's possible they can eventually bypass it like they did with Keaton Batman, Reeve Superman and Ledger Joker. The sculpt was shrunk to NECA's usual 1/10th (7") scale and where packed with a DVD movie, which was a loophole they exploited.

These look way nicer than the Prime1 1/4 scale statues. Fingers crossed for a smaller scale. So being NECA, I'm guessing these are supposed to be lower end than what Prime1 is releasing? It's funny that the sculpts look WAY nicer. I'm not big on the figure/statue biz, so what's the difference here? Scope of quality? Articulation? Materials or paint quality? It seems a bit odd that two different licensees would put out such drastically similar items at the same scale.

My fingers are still crossed for a decent Barron Shredder! Bring on the pink sparkly fabric!

My two dream versions of turtle toys exist in scales I don't want them to.

Hmmm... but there were only three movies, and four turtles.
And if they did, and I hope they do, I hope they would go with first film likenesses.

Considering NECA 7"Adam West Batman was released with Batman Begins and NECA 7" Reeve Superman came with (iirc) Man of Steel movie, I don't think that would be a problem with 6 soon 7 TMNT out there.

These are going to be good.
I do not have any 1/4 figures. I even passed on the awesome Hot Toys Batman. These though... No way am I passing on them.

I'm in for Leo, I figure. These are gonna be amazing. But I of course share the immense frustration that comes with knowing they're so damn big. I hate you, Playmates.
