I got to Target and they had nine hooks for TMNT figures and shelves marked for the Battle Shell, the RP weapons, the 12" figures, and another vehicle. But they were all sold out. Or not up yet. But my mother promised to check during the week on arrands.

I don't think we need this until wave 2. I have gotten every figure with ease, i got my 3rd leo and i'm done for now. I decided not to get 2 of everything and that i'll be happy with just 1 of everything loose of course.

I'm in IL...scoped out KB, TRU, Walmart, and Target. KB, TRU, and Walmart didn't have anything at all (no hooks no nothing) but Target had a good assortment.

I bought myself the four turtles but was kinda limited on money so I'm waiting for another run...they didn't have Shredder, Foot, or Splinter, but they had all of the 12" and all of the vehicles.

Man these toys look so cool...

I wonder whether the new figures will be as "valuable" as the old ones were. It sure seems like people are prepping more now to be ready to stock up on the new line, but won't that just mean that everyone has em? Then what's the point of keeping them unopened?

Moral of the story? Open yer damn toys!

Personally I like having carded figures to display. They look cool with all of the packaging and information.

I got my 2 new ones in the mail. Leo and Raph. Sad to say that no stores around upstate NY have them. I called Wal Mart, and got into a little rucus with the toy isle guy, called Target, that was a no-go. The Comix Zone didn't have anything. So I ordered them off Amazon, they came within 3 days, Anyone who can't find them, Amazon would be your best bet.

P.S., the toys rock, they look "Real" with the dirt look and so-on.

that aint dirt it's backwash and all it's meant for is defining the muscles of the figure better. It's pretty cool i think so too.

Hey Brodie, did buying off Amazon go well for you? I don't see why people would sell the so called "rare" figures (shredder, foot, splinter) if you could just get it off amazon. I'll probably end up doing that if it worked for you.

It worked out fine, came with in 3 days, you get a chjoice of shipment, fast or what ever. And if you want the packages in lighter or less boxes. I ended up getting Leo and Raph the third day in one box that was almost weightless. But the shipping and handeling can be a killer. I ended up paying 15 for the toys and the S&H.

Oh, okay. At least they'll be able to sit in it ok.

Actually, if you want to get the new figures for the best price, Kay-Bee toys is apparently the only ones charging $5.99 for them. TRU, GameStop,etc. all seem to be chargin' $7.99+ for 'em. $5.99 ain't a bad price at all for new TMNT figures, considering Kay-Bee used to sell the orginal figures for that much back in the day. TRU & Kay-Bee always had a 2 dollar price difference, KB being more expensive, but nowadays it seems like TRU is the more pricey one of the two, but not always.:

MotU figures: $8.99- $7.99 at KB
TMNT figures: $7.99- $5.99 at KB
Transformers: $6.99-to-$10.99 - $7.99-to-$11.99 at KB

If KB is gonna keep the TMNT figures at $5.99, then I'm buying all my stuff from there- I'll go broke buying the new MotU AND the new TMNT for $7.99 a piece.

(P.S.)
Does anybody know how to upload a picture for use as an Avatar? I wanted to have the "Snailman" drawing Peter Laird did on his "blast from the past" site for an avatar (hence my name). Any tips for a new person?

I guess I can give your way a try, but first I gotta scale-donw the picture I want to use.

How much did you pay for the figures & vehicles at KB toys? I think they are sapposed to be the cheapest place to get 'em ($5.99 a figure).
