... And I'm dead. HAHA

I do fairly routine checks of 3 Wal Marts, 2 Targets, and 2 TRUs - and I've never seen a Muckman. He's part of the "Tales of the TMNT" line, correct?

Nvm... Saw pics on Instagram, and he's not part of the "Tales..." line. I'm gonna guess that I've totally missed him then.

Yeah, that was attention to detail. Not only the legs but the Two-Face vibe is very interesting too!

I really wish Muckman would surface again. I bought one and never opened him because he was actually one I wanted an extra of to keep carded along with a select few others in the line. I decided to leave him sealed until I found a second one. Well... yeah... LOL.

I really want to open him up to have one on the shelf with my other Nick figs but I can't justify opening him now because of the insane rarity. Uggggh.

I think we're going to get a purge of figures for xmas. Probably the last big push.

I'd wait till after to worry about Muckman.

I'm still looking myself.

I can't find Armaggon anywhere. I've never seen a single one

You're probably right. I still worry that even with a slight last gasp push on the Nick line for the holidays, it won't go very far thanks to so many retailers downsizing the TMNT sections to almost nothing as is. Most of the Targets near me have just a few rows. Same at the Walmarts. TRU fares better except they never seem to stock much new because the same old stuff is just sitting there collecting dust.

Worse case, maybe closeout stores will get loads of them later. I could totally see that happening like with harder to find Transformers stuff in the past.

I never saw him much, but I did manage to get him. I think I actually still have an extra carded one I bought for someone else local to me and they flaked last minute. I'm in the process of moving soon (end of September/first of October), but if I still have him in storage (I'll check when I move) I'll hook you up at cost plus shipping. If I manage to get by there sooner to look and he's still in there, I'll message you. I just have so much crap it's tough to remember lol.

I won't have the funds really until then anyway... so later is probably better than sooner in this case! I appreciate it!

Here's a better look at the monster turtles that should be trickling into stores soonish.

Paint apps are surprisingly nice for Playmates.

Excited to get those. The Samurai and Monster stuff has been a nice way to wrap up the line IMO. I feel like the quality on all of these is better overall.

Is there anything left after the Monster stuff? I was thinking that was truly it for the new offerings, which makes me sad. I've still really enjoyed collecting the Nick line, warts and all.

There's also the Wanted: Bebop and Rocksteady stuff with 80's costumed B&R and trench coat toitles. (Can't remember which one/s.)

Aren't those out already though? I haven't seen them around here but I seem to remember seeing folks on Instagram already finding them at retail in other areas.

Not sure if I'll get those or not. I think the Monsters may be it for me. I just couldn't remember if anything else was incoming after the Monsters.

Nope, until yesterday, all those pics were from the UK or from people in the US who had someone in the UK send them one. They had not yet been spotted in the US.

After the Monsters, if you count them, are the Ghostbusters mashup figures (the 'deluxe' line, next wave after WWE #2) coming to Target, if you count those. After that, no more to anybody's knowledge.

Those Monster Turtles do look great and might be the last great set of figures we get out of current Playmates line.

Anybody know if they feature hollow plastic feet? I've always hated that because it makes the figures almost too light to pose while holding objects.

Ah, ok. I didn't catch that they were spotted overseas first.

I forgot about the GB Turtles. I might get those. I'm not completely sold on them but if I really like them in person, maybe.

Most complaints so far have been about the weird mashup heads. I plan to try and swap on some of the heads from the bigger figures we've gotten in the past, e.g. Flingers/Throw'N'Battle/etc. I'm hoping one or another will fit the joint... Not that I mind the other heads too much but it's nice to have options.

Packaging error

Anyone else find a tiger claw crimson leader with the wrong name on it? Mine says Super Ninja Leo! I was able to finally find one and it's an error in the packaging.
