From Orlando, Fl.

I went to 2 Wal-marts, 2 Targets, Toys R us and a K B toys and between those got all seven figures. None of them had Shredder, SPlinter or the Foot soldier until I got to the last store. They had one each of those three left. I guess I got kind of lucky there. No I just want to get some of those platic cases for action figures to put them in.

Where in Florida are you from Donatello?

I'm from Lakeland. My Target had EVERY figure, atleast 8 of each except for the foot soldiers, Splinter, and Shredder. I have all the turles and splinter carded right now, and I have two loose foot soldier and a loose shredder. I'm hoping to get Shredder and the Foot Soldier carded some time, and the vehicles.

When I finally went and looked for the figs I went to K-Mart. I was very lucky I went when I did. There was 2 or 3 of each turtle, splinter, foot, and shredder. I grabbed the 4 turtles and shredder, i woulda got em all but i ran out of money and K-Marts are more expensive. So I went back there a few times a week, never saw spliter, foot, or shredder again for about a month and a half. So I decided to check Miejer and all they had was 12'' figs, roleplay weapons, shell cycle, and sewer slider. But there were 4 empty hooks for 7'' figs. I checked everywhere for splinter, foot, and the battle shell, but I couldnt find them ANYWHERE! But just last night I went to a Target(a LONG drine) and I was shocked , they had 10 hooks for the 7'' figs and only a few had been takin, they just stocked it back up and they guy said that most go pretty fast. So I got my splinter and foot soldier. The had the weapons and 12''figs too. But they also had the battle shell. The only place ive ever seen it, everyplace else ony has the shell cycle, and sewer slider. I think your best bet would be Target and they are reasonably priced. This is in GR,MI BTW

Yep Target seems to be the best bet for most people. I found majority of mine there and it seems like you guys did to.

Target was the first to have the battle shells, but TRU is beginning to receive shipments now as well.

I waited it out because all the boxes of the ones at Target were beaten up

The Battle Shell is the new TMNT Armored Truck, it's a modarated Purple Dragon truck. As seen in episode one - Thing's Change
The Turtles used it to escape the scene, with all the Footsoldiers

I still can't find the Battle Shell. Much less any of the figures. At least I have most of them... I'll find Shredder someday.

I saw like 20 of the Battle Shells at my Target, but I didn't have enough money to buy any.

No...I think it so stupid, that I who live in Europe (The Netherlands to be exact) can buy the toys here (where the show doesnt even run untill september) and Canada still don't have them

Damn!!!!!!

Okay. That was rather random and pointless.

Make sure you guys look out for the Mini Figures and the two 3 Figure Boxed sets. Their kind of difficult to find right now so If you see them, grab 'em!

The 3-packs are out now? What stores carry them? I remember reading about them in one of the toy mags but I didn't think they were out yet.
Thanks in advance,
