That was fast, great pictures!
The blue strap has got to be a coincidence right?

Still waiting for my order from ThreeZero (Donatello) to arrive!

I noticed a website in the UK had Leo in stock so I ordered him there a few days ago, now I will have to find Raph and Mikey somewhere.
If anyone knows a good EU / UK website to order these, feel free to post.

Wow, these look great. Almost regretting not picking one up.

Additional review-like comments, since I can't stop playing with him...


Just wanted to note that while I think the tattoo band around Leo's upper left arm is their doctored version/interpretation, as there are additional lines within the design that he doesn't appear to have in the film...the other visible tattoo however on his upper right looks to be an exact match to the movie.

In fact, too exact...

Looking around online it's also identical to what's on those big statues that had been made as a promo, as well as on the two collectable tabletop statues (albeit I think one canceled).

Needless to say, I am 99.9999% convinced that (along with the fabric pattern on that same arm) they were able to get hold of the design files actually used on Leo's film model. Making it all the more awesome (at least to me) that touches of the actual guy in the movie are on these figures.

I'm curious to know if they also ripped any of Mikey's right from the film too. Does Raph have any ink or just the brand? Shame Donnie doesn't have any, if I recall.




Comparing with photos of the previous figure set online, they didn't put the lines in the irises of his eyes this time (and really I don't think he needs it) but they added a light touch of red at the edge of his eyes to give it more realism.

The bags on his belts don't open like I'd hoped they might, but they're nicely done. And the little one behind his shoulder for part of his radio does have a little black plastic box of the radio peeking out.

And even though his bare feet will never be seen, you still can vaguely see (and feel) that he's got sculpted toes (aka with nails) under there.

Compared to pics of the 2014 version, I don't think the shell is quite as detailed in paint this time, but still decent.

The lips look a lot thinner if you weren't big on Turtle lips before.

Anyone else receive these guys yet? Haven't seen anything of them online, though obviously these designs are probably old news since the third film is unlikely to be of this continuity. Still though I'm curious how the other Turtles turned out.

I got Raph in the mail several weeks ago. I can take some pictures and post them if anyone wants me to.

Surprised there are still no video reviews on YouTube about these figures.
A lot of online stores don't have them in stock (yet) either.

I managed to get Donnie, Leo and Mikey. Still looking for Raph to complete the set.

I really like the figures, the only downside is that they are pretty expensive.

We're talking about the OOTS versions right? The Eastman ones were cancelled I thought?

Somehow we started talking about the OOTS figures in this thread.

It is a shame the Kevin Eastman figures never made it though, I wonder if they will ever be released in some way.

I think if they’d been six inch figures and around $20-30 they’d have sold really well. 1/6 scale is too expensive for such a niche product really.
