I mean it's easy to remember the major characters, Mutanimals, and the main villains, but a lot of these side characters are getting lost in the shuffle. That's one of the reasons I wouldn't mind a "bloodbath" of sorts around issue 100, just to clean out the main cast a bit.
Cubed, i really like your idea of a culling!

This has come up before and I agree there is an excess of characters some of them are relatively minor and its fine. Null has been mentioned is the one plot thread I keep thinking will be added to,but nothing yet. As for addition of Malinga with the Triceratons finally getting attention it seems unnecessary. I can create a good guess as to what Null will do I have no idea how Malinga will fit into the story going forward.

Bobby said the Punk Frogs were coming up sooner than later however its been four to five months since then. I also believe those frogs severants were not being passed off as them under the Toad Baron so where will they be? Its hard to think its "sooner" with Trial of Krang wrapping up and the focus shifting to the Triceraton invasion. It would be in TMNT Universe's December issue at the earliest.

I not only don't recall Bobby saying that but believe he in fact said they would not likely appear...

I am going by a response in his Q&A thread which he was asked if the grog servants were to serve as the Punk Frogs analog in IDW. He said they are not and the Punk Frogs are scheduled to appear separately soon. I will have to dig through his thread for it. I believe it was during the solicits of TMNT Universe#9.

I do believe the Punk Frogs will pop up in the new TMNT/Ghostbusters crossover next month.

What is your guess regarding Null's role, if you don't mind me asking?

I am guess ing she will play the unexpected third party in the storyline with Agent Bishop. She processed the mutagen for Shredder and she would be a target of Bishop. Bishop might want to confiscate the mutagen properties from her and that can bring her into the main title.

I noticed a lot of old characters on the cover of #4 of #5 including alternate versions of both Mondo Gecko and Ace Duck. I did not see them featured but that does not mean they are not going to be featured. Perhaps it's a quick reference and then move on? That would suck as they were favorites of mine growing up. Better than nothing though and if Mondo and Ace having an alternate version it does not rule out a proper appearance.

I'm not sure what you mean here, you do realize IDW's versions of Mondo and Ace Duck exist, right? Unless I'm reading what you're saying wrong, the alternate ones on the cover will probably only be in that issue as a one-shot thing.

Take a look at the cover, Ace Duck, Mondo Gecko, and Leatherhead appear on the cover, but they are not the IDW incarnations so they are obiviously alternate versions. If we meet The Punk Frogs there in a cameo it will be an alternate version of them leaving room for an IDW proper version to still appear in the future. I will take the bone as they are childhood favorites, but I still await their proper introduction once some story-lines have played out.

I personally say yes but they do make up for it by developing most of them, now don't get me wrong a lot of them don't have the same level of depth like our main heroes but we do get a good understanding on why they do what they do.

Oh, now I see what you mean. I don't know if they're in that Ghostbusters issue, but I do agree the Punk Frogs being "warriors" for the Toad Baron would be the easiest way to include them and make the most sense.

I'm sure Toad Baron has some fighters beyond waiters like Alberto.
