Not a fan of NECA's current fetish for 1/4th scale, but that's a perrdy looking Turtle.

Maybe down the line they'll make some more standard NECA 7" figures.

Yeah this would be better at 1/6 scale and like I said in the other thread I have to wonder if this is the work of Trevor

The picture you posted is Trevor's work, yes but it may not be the one we see here, not at this time but hopefully we'll get to know more

Ha yeah I know it's Trevor's work that's why I posted it for anyone who didn't know to compare. I have his Raph and maybe this is why Donny had been on delay for so long. There are a lot of style similarities in the sculpts.

Anyway I approve except for the scale. I want 1/6. I feel like now that Henson turtles are getting attention someone like Hot Toys (probably not HT cause they're focused on the marvel and Star Wars properties) will put out this scale.

These will be hard to pass up though

I'm pretty sure that NECA, and most likely Mondo too with their own TMNT line, would love to put these out in 1/6 scale, but they're not allowed because of the contracts between Playmates and Nickelodeon.

Which is dumb because Playmates gave up on the collectors marker because they can't hold a candle to these other companies.

That's exactly right. I feel it would be wiser for Nickelodeon to handle the franchise differently so that fans don't feel constantly let down: allow Playmates to hold the rights to produce figures based on the Nick's show if they wish (which is basically the only thing they seemed interested in doing), but let other companies take other incarnations. I don't see how NECA making Mirage or Henson Turtles for the collector's market affects the sales of Playmate's kids toys.

WoW!!!!......I do not approve of the scale..... Maybe I'll be able to afford, and have room for just 1. I still love my Sideshow turtles....to me they are perfect in size and representation..... But I do love my some Henson!!

Agreed. And, to come full circle, they'd look great displayed next to Mondo's.

Neca's 18" line is the only loop hole so far that they can work with for most licenses.
They will stick with 18" because 1:6 scale licenses are mostly taken by a lot of companies.

I'm very excited for these 1:4 figs. I hope they would at least make Shredder beside the turtles.

NECA could maybe loop hole 7" Turtles like they did with Burton Batman and stuff DVD's with them.

I actually hope that does happen.

But yeah, Donatello will be bought. When they get around to doing Raphael, I'll have to pick up two of those. Raphael is my brother's favorite turtle.

Neca is my new favorite company. They are doing Bill and Ted figures too.
