So I went to a Target down in Chantilly, VA earlier and they had new shelf price tickets for the TMNT; they had a different DPCI, were named "Animal figures", and were $9.99 instead of $8.99. So, I scanned it at the self check thing and it said they had items in stock. I asked someone to go look for me and he came back with two fresh boxes full of TMNT regular basic action figures - they were nearly all freaking Mutations with one random Super Shredder and an Armaggon in each. Definitely disappointed and a little confused as to why I was seeing what I was seeing.

Playmates ever answer emails?

Just curious? I went on a rant about lack of finding Muckman and Usagi, but no answer..of course. Also told them I purchased most of all their other figures, so being a loyal consumer, I assumed they would have the decency to answer me back..but nope..they are GOONS!!!

Playmates never answers anything like that all they do now is release crappy repaints of old figures and stupid turtle trivia/facts on their facebook page. After the crap they are pulling with other companies i gave up on them and quit buying their stuff. Stick to companies like NECA that actually put effort in their product

I read your post and ran to the nearest Walmart ... I found Mikey and Raph on their horses, but no sign of Usagi. The hunt continues.

My Walmart's TMNT section is pretty much half empty. The only Tales figure I could find was a Lethal Robotic Foot Soldier repaint.

Playmates doesn't control distribution. You're barking up the wrong tree.

Picked up Samurai Usagi with horse at the Walmart in Gilbert in Garden Grove, CA.

They also had one extra of the horse set and two standard armored Usagi. The colors on the horse version looks better, so I grabbed that. It's odd because the horse version of Sam Raph and Sam Mikey look worse than the standard release.
Also both standard Usagis had the paint on their noses a bit scratched off.

I found Usagi in samurai armor, Samurai Donnie and Usagi with horse sets at two different Walmarts here in WI today. So I guess I'm fully caught up with the Playmates line for the time being.

Also, I received a shipping notice from Sideshow for the Prime 1 1990 Movie Turtles. So they are finally showing up too.

Just got my shipping notice from NECA for the SDCC sets. Now if they just show up at the same time as the Articulated Icons Ninjas from the kick starter I'll be all set.

Found the Walmart exclusive Usagi tonight. Here is case packout:

Samurai Usagi x2
Samurai Leo x2
Samurai Raph x2
Samurai Mikey x1
Samurai Donnie x1

So Donnie got completely skipped in the last wave, and is 1x in this case, so I expect him to be a tough one to find.

And what's with the 8 figure case? I hope it's just a Walmart thing. I wonder if we'll see the 24 figure cases again?
