DVD do you know the prices on the turtles?

Also at this point I am super jealous that you are in China for these...I have my Shredder on order for months, but these turtles are super exciting and I'm not even a 4-kids fan.

I kind of wish the elbow and knee bands were neutral colors, but these might be the best 1/6 scale ever. Mondo is pretty awesome too, but these win so far.

Next question. I have a pre-order for shredder at LunarToyStore for Shredder, but I dont see Casey Jones there anymore.

Anyone know where I can get Casey? If turtles are coming I want the whole set.

Price points. I'd guess same as Casey if not cheaper .

Casey was 980rmb and Shredder 1080

I can't see these (smaller) Turtle figures being any more than 900 each.

This has to be my favorite line ever. Wish I had the money for all these.

They're like the Masterpiece line of Transformers but for 4-kids. The turtles themselves anyway.

Gosh, when I saw shredder, krang and casey i thought they were nice but i was really thinking about skipping this line... now i'm not sure.

the turtles are really stunning. best 1:6 turtles i've seen.

I do like the job mondo did, but they felt like upscaled versions of playmates figures (even heavily influenced by their designs). These feel a little more organic, a little more original in their adaptation yet very honest to the characters. It gels with me.

It looks like they are taking influences from lots of turtle interpretations, not trying to stay strictly based on Mirage or 80s Playmates figures.

These are spectacular. I had very little interest on this line, but I might have to reconsider. If only they were a bit less Fred Wolf I'd be all over them, although I understand that's part of the main appeal for many people.

I'm actually thinking the Turtles will either be the same price as Shredder if not costing more.
They have more accessories and a bit more complicated than Casey Jones.

Price point for the Turtles is 1020rmb.
So pitched between Casey (980) and Shredder (1080).

Still a good price. Being released early 2017.

Krang IS coming.....

They won't.
BBTS are asking $190 for each Turtle .
Leo and Raph(eal) are due to hit in January. I hope they sort the spelling out !!

I can't confirm, but after those, Krang should enter from Dimension Ex (couldn't resist) with Mikey and Don behind as the next release.

In mean time, I put all my 1/6 figures together:

I'm paying $165 each shipped for these. That's $15 less than I paid for Casey and $20 less then Shredder. I can't wait for the rest.
