Nice review from Pixel Dan. I love the new Shredder and Krang, and the foot soldiers. So wonderfully cartoon accurate.

The turtles themselves have the right color, but everything else is not quite up to the standard of SH Figuarts, imo. However I still love the way they look and that they do have the correct color. Which means they will fit better with the villains than the Figuarts ones. That is if you care a lot about that cartoon look.

No belt holster for Mike / Raph, but one for Leo / Don = whyyyyy?
Do them all or don't do them all...

Oh well... No sense nitpicking this epic set.

I'm SO glad I held off on the Figuarts. Something always felt off with them to me, like a bit too goofy/kiddie looking IMO.

This NECA set for me is a game ender! They look just so epic. Everything about this set, to me, is perfect. Brings me back to seeing those first 5 episodes when they first premiered. The only thing that would make it better is a 2nd set (for NYCC wink*wink) with Bebop, Rocksteady, Splinter & April. One can dream!

Between this set, the two original comic sets and the Nick Revoltech Turtles, I'm a pretty happy camper.

Now, if only my 2 sets will get here already...

Demand for one to four figures has been high. Custom orders justified a third and fourth set ordered via eBay. Probably ordering a fifth.

Is there anyone attending SDCC who would like to be cross-country buddies for TMNT exclusives this year? I'm attending NYCC this fall and could get you access to exclusives at that con in exchange. Send me a PM if interested.

Same here. I wish they didn't take days on end after printing labels to actually ship them.

They could do the Android body, Splinter, Casey Jones and an extra foot soldier...

You know what they could do, a young Eastman & Laird 2 pack... or even do Jim Lawson & Steve Lavigne and make it a 4 pack. Lol Packed with mini Turtles, note pads & pencils.

I had the same thought. I don't think it would need anything else. But you can never have too many foot. Couple rock soldier would be cool. The possibilities for cool figures in this line is so big I really hope we haven't seen the end.

That would be fun. Better through in a couple complete comics.

Rock soldiers would be cool. Neutrinos would be fun.

And yes, a mini to scale TMNT #1 and a long box, maybe repurpose a couch from another series... lol. An apartment designed to look like the one where they started...

More characters from Mirage & the OT would be awesome.

I dunno about you guys, but I'd totally buy figures of Eastman & Laird as they looked when they created the TMNT...

The potential for toy photoshoots of them hanging out with the turtles is virtually limitless.

I'd buy E&L figures in a hearth beat, they could stand next to Michael Jackson and Bruce Lee

Mine shipped Wednesday night and the delivery date was scheduled for the 17th but that seems a little soon. It honestly wouldn't surprise me if there was a little hiccup in transit that pushed the delivery date back by a day. We've had a lot of torrential rain that moved through last Tuesday so there's flooding in some areas still. That might slow things down a little.

I ordered the NECA set, and much as I like the Neca Turtles, the SH Figuarts sculpts, body proportions and facial expressions are more accurate to what the turtles looked like throughout most of the series, especially seasons 2,3,4,5,6 and 7. I just wish the SH were less expensive

You can get the SH Figuarts figures now for around the price people are paying me for individual turtles from this set.
