I don't think I will exhaust myself to hunt these down but they are incredible. The reason I was considering it was because they put me in the mind of the 4Kids (03) incarnation of the animated series. Like an awesome modern/realistic version of those designs. Is that how you guys feel or is it just buying some good turtle figures? They do come with accessories that more resemble the original cartoon but they just look like the 03 turtles to me. I actually thought that's what they were supposed to be on first glance....

I feel the same way. I've yet to own any 2003 figures (as I wasn't watching the series back when it was on), but I think it puts me off a little that like the OT they don't really look enough like the actual series characters. But these look more like them imo, which is why I'd love to have figures of this design, but I REALLY wish they'd put out a much more affordable (and space friendly) 6" version. I'd probably jump on that in a heartbeat.

These look the most like the 03 version of the turtles and they just look awesome. I'd love to get the whole set but it appears Raph is very difficult to find.

They lost the license so DREAMEX will prob be no help. I think you best bet might be eBay-are they still not popping up?

The shredder and Casey are awesome even solo though...

...or maybe just a single turtle like your favorite, but 3 of 4 brothers would be heartbreaking lol

I agree with Coro.
Get the Shredder if nothing else. Awesome figure.
Casey comes a close second.
Of the set, I like Mikey best, and he comes with an amazing skateboard.

The Donnie comes with the trench coat (which I immediately gave over to Raph). Speaking of Raph, it isnít easy to find-at all, Iím afraid.

I ended up biting the bullet and getting my Raph from ebay. It was pricy but worth it to complete the set.

I still need to nab Casey and Shredder, but at least I got the 4 turtles done. That's more then half the battle.

Well, I just bid $400 for Raph on ebay and still lost the auction. This guy is going to be very difficult to find and expensive.

So I finally got the set, albeit in "used/like new" condiiton - only displayed. The only thing is that the seller did not have the original boxes or name plates but everything else. The collector in me had a hard time biting on that but honestly I love the design of these turtles and it seemed at this point it was either this, nothing, or pay a bigger fortune for everything. For me the original boxes would have just taken up space, still I'd rather have them, but I ended up getting everything cheaper than retail because of it. Good luck to anyone still looking.
