Guess I'll go gather materials to work on the chain mod then.

Great to see the retro line isn't dead. Here in Canada I keep checking the pegs to see if krang and the foot soldier will ever come out but they never do so hopefully that will change with more figures. As for the sports figures, I picked up touch down tossin Leo from my local 2nd hand store complete for about $8 so I am good there but at the time I passed on skateboarding mikey as he wasn't complete so if he comes out here I will pick him up.

Would have liked more of the originals though cause I never had Casey Jones as a kid and it would be nice to have a cheaper option than what I've seen on eBay.

Also on the toys r us site they claim the retro turtle figures are $12.99 retail, but always on sale at $9.99. I've been tempted a few times to buy an extra retro mikey to keep a spare set of standard chucks, but now I'm just tempted to chain mod mine and call it a day.
I Found Retro and Nick Line Mikey's Chucks are crap. I chain modded my Nick Mikey's chucks and the hook weapon. It looks so much better. I haven't modded the retro one yet as I wanna keep it retro.

The chucks on my retro are barely staying together, so I don't have much of a choice.

I did do the mod with the 2012 basic Mikey at least. I would have done the mod to the Battle Shell one too, but just never got around to doing. The Kusarigama for the battle shell one shouldn't be modded though. It can't fit inside his shell if the chain was made longer.

Tonight I checked two Targets in the Leesburg, VA area, and Target, Walmart and Toys R Us all in Frederick MD, and not one of them had anything new, good or interesting. Barely any stock at all, which has been the normal for a long time now. I have about 15 figures I still need!! It's incredibly frustrating!!

I went back to TRU today (where I got Bebop and Rocksteady from a few days ago) When I went the other day the shelves were PACKED with the retro line figures of the 4 turtles and Bebop and Rocksteady. Today I was shocked to see every last one of them gone.

That is pretty funny. I just expected Playmates to make the main figures and none of the turtle variants. I don't believe they are the best to release, but then I never expected them to release another two figures alongside the Bebop and Rocksteady. By the looks of it they will be coming soon.

I checked my closet Target tonight and I could see left overs of the newest wave. So they must have had Monkey Brains and Napoleon earlier in the day. I did however pick up 3 of the 4 battle shell turtles. I haven't seen those until now.

Walmart.com now has Karai up for order. For around $16 though! Just wanted to give a heads up for those of you who still don't have her yet. Amazon has had her for awhile also but Walmart seems to be a little cheaper.

Based on what others have said they've found in stores recently, I need Monkey Brains, Savage Mikey, Mondo Gecko and retro Rocksteady, Bebop and the Foot Soldier. I don't think the other ones I want have actually technically come out yet.
The biggest problem is that every store near me seems to never have anything in stock, so even if the new ones have come out, the stores near me just have zilch. The shelves are just empty day and night. I've tried three Targets, two Walmarts and one Toys R Us.

I don't think savage Mikey and Mondo are out yet. At least I haven't found them yet. I just recently found retro Bebop and Rocksteady. I think they might have two more at my TRU if you wanted some help with those.

That's the problem with Amazon for some reason Turtle figures are way to expensive.

I ordered Attila from Amazon and I got it in 2 days. Not worth the 20 bucks I paid. I've seen better toys comming out of McDonald's happy meals but it beats paying for gas driving around searching for it. Gotta have them all. I picked up napolean today from Walmart. He was sitting right next to monkey brains in a new display at wal mart on cone blvd. in Greensboro nc. I have an extra monkey brains and a Karai if anybody needs.
