Rise of the TMNT toy speculation/discussion/announcement thread

Well, probably the biggest news in a while was dropped today; 2018 brings a new 2D animated TMNT series, Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

There's very little information on the content (which if you haven't seen yet, and want to read up, there's a topic in the Nicktoon subforum), and literally ZERO toy announcements, but I was thinking about how the toys will go. You know they're obviously going to have toys.

It's a pretty safe bet that Playmates will still have their tentacles on this. And par for the course, the first wave or two will probably start out pretty cool and then quickly diminish into 5 or less PoA underpainted lumps of plastic. I'd love to be wrong though on the latter! I don't want terrible figures!

Megabloks, if they're still under contract, will probably have Rise toys. That'd be neat. Minimates, too, if that still is a thing they'll be doing by then.

My hopes are that all non-Nick lines like stuff based on the '87 series and movies will continue as-is. Especially with Playmates' stuff... I don't want to see them re-re-re-re-re-release the bloody 88 figures AGAIN. Gotta wonder if they'll do more of them there wrestlin' Turtles but with the new Rise designs.

Ooh! I'd also hope to see the Rise characters mix into Heroclix!

It's all about paint jobs/show accuracy for me. I don't really care about scale or or articulation (unless it's some collector type figure)

Having nothing to base the designs on who knows. Judging by the current Nick stuff I'm not very optimistic about them.

The first wave will be good probably, gotta have a decent base for the eventual never ending Turtles Variants.

I just hope Donatellos tooth gap and booyakasha get left behind.

Not feeling the mystic city part, but excited to see the art and toys. Probably just going to get what I like this time around.

Found this. Personally I hate the new design. I really hope this is not accurate info.

You're late to the party, it's real, it's official and it's been discussed in several threads

Still, weird that they would remove TMNT from "Our brands." I mean, what, are they not even selling 2012 TMNT toys anymore?

Would be interesting if Nick decided to cut ties with Playmates, and it would make sense at a time where they're about to relaunch a new TMNT series. I don't think they will, but if now was the time, it's as good as any.

It's always possible that they adjust the price down. Amazon pre-order prices guarantee works in your favor sometimes!

How come Mikey is the only one whose belt doesn't match his bandana/bands?

I forgot we already had released pics here...confirms the "war paint" loss from the SDCC figs to the retail figs.

Yes, they are on top of her head.
Looks like they may have planned these as an accessory but they would have caused a choking problem.
Anyways, here’s a closer look:

So glad we're getting closer to the release of these! Figures look good and the show's not nearly as bad as some people on the web make it out to be.

You know what would be really nice? Since the designs and characters are so different in this series, it would be cool if Playmates slipped in some IDW figures in place of a few variants. They did the Mirage TMNT in the 2012 line so it’s not completely impossible (just extremely unlikely). It would allow them to put out more “classic” looking versions of all the main heroes and villains, be something fans have asked for and maybe attract back some of the collectors who aren’t planning on picking anything up as they don’t like the new show and/or designs.

Ya think we'll get Megabloks based on Rise? The styles are a perfect fit.
