I hope so too.
I've been expecting to hear more details all day.

If I hear anything, I'll post it here of course.

These Pet Turtle sets are slightly bigger than I expected.


The lil figures are actually pretty neat, and didn't disappoint .
I've always been impressed with the mechanical detailing behind these micro sets, and the Transformers style of toys.

And, as requested- a (hopefully ) more detailed close up of the Safari range of HSH

OK. Strartex to set these lil, not so lil guys up.
They are making for quite a nice display.

Glad I chose to get these





The tiny figures aren't too bad - tried to do a close up ...



First one? I would always go for Mikey, but that's personal preference.

If I was only getting one, I'd get Leo.

Here's Leo : well if you can see him. I found a few different Leo's in different scales -



The larger and the tiniest!!!



And here's Leo, in the hands of, Leo -

Too bad the belts and wraps aren't painted, but they still look decent. It's nice to have new tmnt stuff to look forward to. This year figure wise, the playmates line was pretty eh for me.

I realized today, that I was having fun with these sets.
I still look forward to getting more if the 'basic' figures. These though, are a different line for me and something of a novelty. I don't know if I will get (if more are actually released ) sets beyond the pet turtles, 9 inch turtles and the 4 vehicles.

Even with the lack of paint,I still want the main core of characters in the micro line. I guess Playmates have lowered my standards

Maybe just a little, but for micro scale it's a little forgiveable because even 90s Mighty Max had omitted paint jobs.

I suppose, although it's a weird choice nixing the belt and wraps, but keeping the white of the eyes.

Would love to get a Leo set for scale to display with the giant Leo playset. Wish it didnt came with Cockroach terminator tho.
Me and Raph share the same phobia.

You're in luck.
The free standing Leo set set comes with a micro Shredder.

Priorities?

I'm almost tempted to buy a brown paint marker to try and paint the belts though.

Here's a quick comparison between the 'giant' Leo playset and the 'micro' Leo playset .



Later, I will open up the micro Leo set and place it beside the pet Turtle version.

These guys tho, are larger, and have more features than the Pet versions.

Wish they weren't lazy and molded his correct belt, but he definitely looks better than the old big Leo.

Here he is opened up.

He's a lot of fun.



The weapons rack: good idea , but the swords and sais are a tad loose. If you breath on the rack, they fall off.

The figures are ok, but as always, not as inclusive of the paint apps. Detail is good tho, for such tiny dudes.



The leaflets have the range complete at the 4 vehicles, 4 pet turtles and 2 mutant turtles - so I think that'll be it for this range.

I've set up a display unit for these.

Here's the three Leo sets.



Numbers:
Vehicle set- item #87601
Mutant set - item #87841
Pet set - item #87711

Hope these help.

The weapon rack is really cool with the Leo Playset. A nifty way of giving your Micro Turtles better looking weapons then the yellow and tan weapons in the smaller packs, and extras are always nice.
