35th Anniversary Comic Book set from Playmates

Please feel free to take this down if itís been mentioned before.

I see that Playmates are doing a 35th Anniversary Comic Book set of figures.
The figures are all B/W versions of their color versions from a few years back,
Only color, is their bandanas: all red of course.
The detailing has been upped somewhat from the SDCC Raph, and the set comes with a version of the 1st comic with an exclusive cover penned by Kevin Eastman.

Iím not sure if this is an SDCC release, but itís got a run of 7000 sets.

Cool I guess. Luckily not for me, those figures looked really bad if it's just a redo of the Playmates Mirage figures

Information comes from the set i have.
I found nothing on-line about it, so I didn’t post pics.
I was trying to see if it was an SDCC Ex.
There is nothing in the packaging to suggest it is, but it has an edition count, out of 7000 (so there are quite a few sets being made)

Essentially B/W versions of these guys with added body detailing that accentuates the comic book look.



Here’s a taster of the item.
If I get no objections from anyone, I’ll post a full set of pics after the weekend.


I know they are rehashed, but I think they look pretty cool.

This must be the project Kevin hinted at around Toy Fair. SDCC exclusive does seem likely and I wouldn't be surprised if they're offered through the Sewer Squad site too.

That's cool. Even since they made a black and white Raphael I want the full set.
This would do.
Hope it won't be expensive.

I haven't bought a Playmates figure in many years, but I'm curious about these.

Weekend over and no complaints.

Picture time.


I really like this packaging. Best that Playmates has ever done in my opinion.

The back is pretty cool:



And the figures:



Got to say that I am very impressed with this set.

Looks good. Really wish Playmates would add wrist joints for these figures.

That is my one real complaint with the ones before. You can't get proper poses because of the lack of wrist articulation. I like these in the box though. I think I will be getting some if the price is right.

I respect everyone's opinion, for sure, and I really hope you guys who are excited for this really enjoy it, but these look awful to me. Like, really bad. Neca's comic line blew these out of the water. These don't even look like the comic versions, really, and the weird black detailing is atrocious. Why does it look like they're all about to lose their noses? What is that? A scar? Awful.

The best part about this is the back of the box.

Agreed.

The packaging really does look great though. I don't buy any Playmates products, but this is actually sort of tempting to me. The sculpts being weak has less impact when you keep them in the box.

We don't know yet. Kevin Eastman teases that he was doing a cover art for some Wal mart exclusive with playmates toys. Guess this may be it. Or plans might have changes to include this an as SDCC exclusive.
Have to wait and see.

Thereís nothing on the box to indicate SDCC, but you never know.
It does have a run of 7000 units.
The comic inside is new run of that first classic, from 35 years ago: this one comes with a new cover penned by Kevin.

After moving this thing around, I think itís finally found a home:
