Wonder if they will sell these online like a few of their past exclusives?

Price is BS but given the rarity they would still be worth it.

Are these the same that will be £10 over here when they come into the stores (not sure what you pay over there) just an early release or are they better quality, bigger etc?

They say it's better paint.
It's usually the exact same figure but a bit more paint applications. I would say it's a $20 value exclusive.
$30. Asking a bit too much for paint job. These are existing mass retail molds.

Ugh, that price point.

I’d bite at $20 for at least Leo (and I’d still feel like I overpaid), but not this.

I hope every TMNT "fan"/"collector" has the same negative attitude about these figures...because then there should be plenty left over for me to score on eBay at a more reasonable markup!

for a better quality figure, that you buy all in a set in one go. That's waiting in one line.

If you can get into the Nickelodeon line, and to the front of it before their caps for the day, you're not guaranteed the ability to buy all 4 figures.
Because someone may only want one, I'm someone may only have the money to buy one.

Not too bad of a presentation at least, though personally I'd have decided against going with green guys on a green background so they would stand out more if displayed open box flap like that.

Is it weird I prefer the retail versions? I'm not a big fan of the spots honestly. Plus, painted weapons aren't that big of a deal to me, at least not for a huge markup.

OMG , someone actually put these for sale on ebay for a $150 buckaroos EACH, not for all 4, but EACH! If people wait for SDCC I am sure you will get some decent sellers that will ask a fair price for all 4 collectively .

Wow, that is INSANE! Sure, I want a Leo, but I would never ever pay that price for these! I'd much rather buy a regular one once they are released and paint it myself with "better paint."
