At this time, no.
In a similar fashion to the large scale Dino's , we didn't get Leo till the range was completed - even then he was somewhat limited. So... I'd like to think a Don will be offered later .

Sorry Playmates, while I do like the micro turtles playsets when I was a kid, I just don't think these will sell in present day. Not a lot of kids play with toys these days and these micro playsets haven't been around for a while.
While I do like the nostalgia factor of things and will probably pick up a few for display, it seems like these will be attract adult collectors than kids.

It attracted me... until I saw the final product. Crappy paint apps on the figures once again. Easy pass.

i think i may be interested in those also but only because of my nostalgia of playing with the older sets. ill have to see them in person to decide if i want them. i may just get the Leonardo Dojo since i had the Leonardo set back then

To be honest, I was ready to pass on the micro sets.
Normally I've accepted the offer of figures before I've completed reading the emails. These, I did not reply about for some time, really only getting them for novelty factor, but I'm not impressed by them.
The safari HSH figures look good. HSH is a range I'm glad I didn't pass on. In MANY ways, these lil guys surpass their bigger brothers.

Thumbs up Nunchuckin' New Year for HSH; thanks for the pics, DVD!

COWABUNGA!

I too LOVE HSH!!
May I please ask for additional photos of your new HSH Sewer Safari merch? (It would be a real bonus to see close-ups of the bottom centre of the back; to see the other duos in more detail).
Plus, are there any indications that 'Sewer Safari' may indeed be a sequel to 'Blast to the Past'- for example, on the front of the packaging, is there any 'As seen in the Nickelodeon TV Special' info?
Repeat thanks for the Turtley Awesome info!!

These look a lot like the old versions. 4 'large ' Turtles, unfold into a range of sets. They look none too bad.

Here's the backs of a couple of the releases.
Oh, these looks pretty good.

goddammit, Playmates. My enthusiasm is once again curbed by the shoddy paint. 😩

Micro mutants? Nice!! Sucks the paint apps aren't like the old school sets. I just found the micro toon Mikey at my Dad's not long ago from when my brother and I were little. It's well painted and detailed for such a small figure. I might not be able to resist these if the price is right. Wonder what they will run?

Safari Turtles?

Got my fingers crossed for a new "Farmer Mike" revamp in 2017!

I'm excited for the micro mutants sets, omitted paint apps was inevitable (Mondo got the shortest end of the stick, where are his paaaaaaaaaaants?), just hope they're a good price. I like extra tiny scale because they make great toys for my toys lol... The turtle playsets are a bit silly looking, but the interiors look alright.

I got a Micro Mutants Mikey + Bebop + Party Wagon, Mikey can fit inside a transformers titan master which I think is neat. I should try and post some pics.

Cool.
If you like the micro sets- these will grab you.
These I do like.







These are just like mini versions of the Leo playset.
To be honest, I just keep that set up as a giant action figure!! I did, once open it up. It takes a huge amount of room.

I hope those turtle figure/playsets aren't too expensive, they remind me of the big Leonardo we got last year, but proportions look better. I'm totally excited.

What do you think of the Mikey party wagon?
I thought it was better than expected.

I'll have to do some pics later today .

I wish it was modeled after the actual party wagon instead of having his face, but it has a lot more paint apps than I expected. At least I can store the nunchucks in the back of the car because of the closeable door, so that's nice.

I kind of like the face idea . Similar to the dart guns released earlier. Those could have been boring otherwise. The characterized vehicles make these a bit more desirable on my shelves.

I still like it and will probably try and grab the complete set.

Hope there's Mikey and Donnie figure playsets next.
