Noooooo... Those are just for fun.

It's entirely possible that they were pitches that lost out to the concept that became Rise, however. No way to know for sure but it's a pretty safe assumption.

Ok thanks. I'm in Georgia. Not trying to impose on who already asked. If you see two at a time definitely, I would appreciate it. If you're looking for any Samurai stuff, I've found them all...horse sets too. Picked up Samurai Leo and Samurai Usagi last night.

...also any new repaints. Basically everything except Muckman.

We still have the monster wave and Bebop and Rocksteady wave coming.
Unless I'm out of the loop and they've been canceled.

Count me in as a TMNT fan looking out for Muckman. I have had zero luck in finding one and I can't afford scalper prices. I'd be willing to spend $25 on him though (even if opened), but I realize he's worth far more. I was seriously excited for this figure to come out and I'm pretty bummed he ended up being so obscure.

My advice is to be patient. There are probably more Mucks and Usagis ready to be distributed. For one thing, the Target-exclusivity of standard Usagi may be timed and then it'd get pushed out to Walmarts in a few months, too.

For the entire year, I have hunted, hunted, and hunted some more. And hunted again later that night. And then hunted online. I've been in 5 states so far this year, 4 in the past two months, and in each one, again, I hunt.

I have seen THREE total Muckmen in the wild, all 3 of which I bought. 1 for my TMNT collecting friend, 1 for myself to open, and 1 for my carded doubles that I keep.

I have seen ZERO plain Usagis. My friend got me the 1 I have for opener. It's the only one of TWO he's seen, and he's the only person I know who hunts close to how much I do. I still want my carded double of him, too, and I have found 2-3+ of even the rarest repaints (Baxter, Mutagen Man are rarest from my sightings), plenty of Samurais & horses incl. Sam/Horse Usagi, and still ZERO plain Usagis.

There's no way that Playmates only made that many figures, that I will only ever see that few of these with the amount of hunting I do. They're just stuck in the warehouse waiting to be pushed out in waves like all the figures before them, Karai included. It was 6 months before I saw Karai in my local neck of the woods after everyone else was finding them in stores on the coasts. So long that I actually did pay a $28 price to get my first one, I did not have the patience then. But I see Karai everywhere now.

I do think there will be fewer made, because of the line winding down, it's just common sense. But I do think there are more waiting to come. The repaint push was to raise more money on existing sculpts. That funds all the current fireworks. The Samurai push, and the upcoming monsters push. Sprinkled in with all of that has already been some re-issues of old figures, even of the purple carded Stealth Techs. And sprinkled in with stuff yet to come, I say with fair confidence, will be more Muckmen and Usagis.

So, in other words, I know it's hard to sit without one, and I'm freakin' out daily too about the carded Usagi I need to find some day -- but patience, patience, patience. The fat lady has not sung yet.

That's weird, because I saw Usagis in every Target I went to.

But I agree with waiting. I paid $20 for Mondo, and then he was $6 on Amazon 3 months later.

Also, check online retailers consistently, and maybe email Amazon to see if and when he gets restocked.

I swept through the nearest metro one evening on a hot tip that the Samurais and repaints had just landed. I hit every single Target there, which is 8 of them. I found all the samurai turtles abundant, and was able to piece together two entire sets of the Target-first repaints, too. The repaints were plentiful enough, though spread out and slightly picked over. Usagi was nowhere. Maybe you bought them all a couple hours earlier, lulz.

Then I went back to one of them a week later -- the one I cleaned the most figures out of -- it had triggered another case put out on the pegs but again no Usagi.

I remember waiting quite awhile for Mondo, Napoleon, Atilla, etc, to show up here. So long that I imported from UK for a not-too-bad price-up. Thought maybe I had missed em stateside, I had been out of the game a bit. Then they showed up everywhere here.

I've only seen 2 Muckmans and 1 regular Usagi. I picked up the Usagi for someone on here. I'm regretting not buying those Muckmans when I had the chance. I saw a Samurai Usagi today if anyone needs it.

Only reason I'm leery is because I've never seen a wave move on to the next without at least seeing all the previous wave's figures in the wild first. Haven't seen a Crimson Leader either. Little less worried about collecting that one though.

Kick boxer Don and Raph and purple box Stealth Tech Raphael for starters.

My main Target store close to me has figures in the back, but everytime I try to get some help in getting them from the back the associate plays stupid on me. The pegs have one figure each on them and they won't put out anymore.

I actually don't think Ninja Strike Don was part of this packing. I have not been seeing him at any Targets alongside Muck, I've been finding him elsewhere...Walmart I believe mainly. You're right about Ninja Kick Raph and the Stealth Tech reissue though, those were both alongside the 3 Mucks I found at 3 Targets.

I think Target got a couple special cases so far this year -- the one with Muck and the Samurai/Usagi/Repaints. Anybody find Muck somewhere other than Target? Maybe he and Crimson Leader are timed Target exclusives and nobody bothered to make that obvious to us. Also, heck, maybe all of Targets cases are special for them. They always seem to have slightly different assortments than everyone else lately.

The Nick line is basically done just Monster Turtles and Bebop and Rocksteady wanted to go

Characters that never got figures from Nick Turtles.

Don Vizioso

The Stallone Bodyguard

Pigeon Pete

Alopex

Bishop

Utroms

Kraang Sub Prime

Sir Malichi

Dr. Rockwell with his kraang tech

Hun

Oroku Saki

Hamato Yoshi

Tang Shen

Shinagami

Kavaxas

Renet

Mona Lisa

Sal Commander

Savanti Romero ( Cancelled Figure)

The animal 3 pack (Cancelled Figure)

Man I miss 80's playmates when you would get almost every character in toy form.

Sad we never got this. And the animal 3 pack would have been cool too.
