Man ... those almost remind me of Happy Meal Toys.

EDIT: Actually, the photos in the link don't look THAT bad ... but I still can't sink my teeth into these designs.

Why is Leonardo weeping tears of blood?

Those toys look cheap and nasty, like second-hand trousers at a parish bake sale.

He fought so long and got so far, but in the end it didn't really matter.

Poor scale, they say Raph is the biggest turtles, well in figure land he appears to be the smallest

I'm trying to stay optimistic. I need to see some actual footage of the show in action. So many changes this time around. 2k12 had changes but it felt very true to the franchise. This time it's off in a different direction.

I like Leo, Raph is a real downgrade from previous Raph interpretations IMO.

That said, I do like the 'energy fists' raph comes with.

I KNOW! I get that these are just kid's toys ... but yikes, there's no effort at all with Playmates to try and get scale right. Besides the giant Krang body, I don't think it was ever really a concern for them though.

And as usual, since this is still Playmates... expect a lot of those paint apps to not exist on the final figures. Shameful that their false advertising continues, other figure makers don't pull that BS.

After checking out all available pictures, I dig the "Tron-esque" motorcycles and the new sewer playset. The turtle tank is even pretty awesome.

As for the figures themselves, I know better not to expect them to look exactly like these since Playmates is known to severely disappoint. However, I am psyched for all the main characters (April looks great!) in addition to a Giant Leonardo. I'll be a sucker to any and all Leonardo toys...I'm just dreading him being an egotistical jerk in the new series.

I honestly like them. Raph could be bigger, but It's nice to see a first assortment of TMNT figures that are actually quite accurate to the show designs without any weird differences. I'm probably gonna take a step back from collecting the toys a bit after I put so much effort into collecting characters in the Nick line that only appeared once, but I'll at least grab the four Turtles and maybe April and Splinter. (Plus Slash, Leatherhead, and Armaggon if they're ever in the show.)

That's true. Maybe a lot of the weapons will end up painted grey.

But even NECA does that. Saw a NECA Dutch from the Predator line in a local comic shop and compared the image on the packaging to the actual figure. Huge difference!

Someone at Playmates designed that playset just for us long time toy collecting fans. It's generic enough to work for any universe, and it really looks like a perfect display stand/centerpiece for any line. The throwback to the '87 turtle van in the arcade game and whatever other little touches we haven't discovered yet are more icing on that cake. No way am I gonna sit out on that thing. Even though I'm low on room, it's clearly so much more practical than the 2012 playset for a display that I might just have to sell that one to make room.

As for the "happy meal" toy quality, I think what y'all are really saying by that is they look toyetic....probably mainly because of all the bright colors but also the sharp cartoonish stylized angles. That's why the part of me that just plain loves toys is taking to them right away, actually. Articulation-wise we will see, but they look like they have the joints to at least fare no worse than previous lines.
