Yeah. they should have gone retro with Baxter Fly. Actually there are probably a number of characters that would have been fun in a retro style.

Yeah I am as blessed as you are. I have been stalking my local Wal-Marts for 2 weeks now for Muckman and he cannot be found anywhere here but those repainted figures are languishing on our pegs. The sad part is, I do not even collect these new figures. I think I've bought 3 so far in this entire line and when they finally release something that I AM willing to buy it is nowhere to be found. I am so frustrated by this. I live 30 minutes from our Wal-Mart distribution center and they are out. Yet they have tons of orders for them.
Also, can anyone confirm that Muckman was carried forward in this repainted baxter/mutagen man case? I'm not convinced he was. This sucks. I keep trying to tell myself that soon he will be falling off the shelves but the last time I did that it was for an NES classic edition and well that turned out horribly for me lol.

Muckman

I gave up and bought Muckman on Ebay. I kinda wanted that feeling you get when you actually find the figure you've been looking for in a store but oh well. The pro is that I was able to cherry pick a decent paintjob from a lot of them, the con is he cost me 30 bucks.
I wanted to ask, has anyone else bought these sewer lid display bases and tried to complete Muckman? I bought a set last night to see if it would work. If it doesn't they are still pretty cool. Here's the link: http://blindsquirrelprops.com/tmnt-a...figure-stands/

Any news about the Usagi's release date?
Have him already appeared in the Nickelodeon show?

Visited my local TRU today, what a major bummer. Filled with Wave 1 ( and 1 mouser pack, 1 BS Raph and 2 Squirrelanoid), OOTS figures and series 1 M&M (with 1 M&M Rocksteady).

And the TMNT shelves have been halved from last time I was there, so about 1/4th of th space they used to have.


Oh wait. They did have a batch of the new XL figures, which feels more like salt on the wound as sad things are.

I saw this one as well as a "Ragin Leatherhead" repaint at Walmart yesterday as well. The Leatherhead looked pretty good so I picked him up.

Found muckman at target today, was surprised because the shelf looked sort of bare walking to it. No luck at other stores unless they were already grabbed. Just need new tiger claw now, I did find and pick up the battler raph the other day. Hopefully we get Don to finish that line and am really looking forward to the Usagi line coming. I have zero interest in the repaints as of now, but man that box art looks awesome.

I saw this one too last time I went. Along with the storage-shell repaints. Just didn't feel like snapping a pic, since these are just more silly variants.

Sorry, the quality isn't the best, but here you go. He is more of an olive color with orange wraps on his hands & feet. To me he looks a little closer to the way he does in the show after he aged while in Dimension X. There are some better pics on ebay or amazon if you were to search Ragin Leatherhead.

Of them all, I can almost appreciate that variant. It's kinda like he's wearing orange to honor his best bud Michelangelo.

A Leatherhead variant would've been the perfect opportunity to repaint him in a more gray/green color scheme as seen on the show. Wasted potential.

I think I'm probably the only one who really digs ALL the repaints lol. The Battle Shell changes are nifty to me, and Leatherhead looks great. I really dig the new Robotic Foot Solider too - perfect for more army building with some differences to the original. The Mutagen Man and Stockman are just wacked out psychedelic cool IMO - but I dig bright, crazy color choices.

I just love seeing more new figures of any kind on the shelves tbh, as this line is winding down and I'll be sad to see it go (again, I know I'm in the minority there too lol).
