Honestly, most of Super 7's stuff is just extremely lackluster to me. The ReAction figures look like the kind of thing you can get at a dollar store, and all of their t-shirts and other geeky tchotchkes aren't really any different from what's being offered on a million other websites. The only thing they make that has any appeal to me are the Ultimates figures, but of course those are pre-sale only with limited windows of availability.

To their credit though, they do seem to be confident in the longevity of the line, not just going with the four turtles in the first wave like just about every other TMNT line and putting out the likes of Scratch early on, but I'm still skeptical that we'll get anything resembling a complete recreation of the vintage line, particularly with all the other TMNT product out there competing for fans' dollars.

I'm more skeptical about a complete line because of the increasing competition for Ultimate's space from other licenses they keep acquiring.

I think I'm going to be mixing and mashing this with NECA. Some characters I have more distinct attachment to the toys and others the toon. Plus with NECA being so hard to find in store I may just settle for the Super7 version for some characters.

They're accurate to the original Playmates tones.

How do you know when they aren't shown side by side?

I'd say a pretty vibrant green but def not light green. He is pretty on par with the reaction figure tone.

We honestly won't know until/unless we see both side by side to see if they have dif skin tones.

So far judging from the pics of sewer surfer mikey I have seen and the fig of the normal mikey I have in hand I don't really see a big difference at all which right now I would chalk up to photos need to be color corrected.

I have it and I assure you it is not light green. Actually seems pretty close to the original toy color to me.

Not to mention the figures in the video are hand-painted prototypes...

The figures all look fantastic though. I was hoping Slash would be taller but he's nice and chunky so I think that is good enough. This is definitely my most anticipated wave whiiiich sucks since we're probably at least a year out from delivery.

some notes from the video:
  • wave 4 is on the water
  • sewer surfer mike head will be color compatible with original figure “they have to be” - brian
  • “i think it is specifically from a comic” - brian flynn on slash alt head. why doesn’t it have sharp teeth then?
  • fifth item in each wave will be “display pieces” or “accessory pieces” only, will come and go. not all waves will have 5 items.

Just curious is anyone army building the mousers?

I hope they do a pack of these in the glow in the dark. Like the one that came with GID Baxter. An army of glowing mouser would be cool.

I actually would like to own these mousers but not at the current price point.

Yeah. To army build these is like buying an extra wave. But I missed my chance to do it with NECA back in the day.
