Ah, well good to know I'll have another Shredder when I find those bags. Nearly every set I've bought was missing a crucial piece. I hope with the Mattel acquisition, their customer support doesn't suffer.

I'm lucky my Xenomorph hasn't broken because it's the only one I've seen! I'd be screwed.

If anyone has purchased any of the newer sets like the Shredder's Throne Battle the last page of the instructions has the minifigure checklist page which shows what series 7 would be.
Armaggon
Leo (looks like Monster Hunter, but maybe 80's style like the Wanted Bebop & Rocksteady)
Raph (metallic colors)
Kraangdroid (clear blue body)
Donnie (Super Ninja, like series 6 Leo)
Mikey (Vision Quest)
Casey Jones (Space/Dimension X)
The eighth mystery figure is not shown. My guess is it would be a Rocksteady to go with Bebop from series 6.

Toys R Us has insane prices on the Mirage Comics Turtles. The 399 piece rooftop set is $3! THREE DOLLARS! I just bought the whole line for less than $20 shipped. I would've bought 2 of the Second Time Around set to complete the building, but it was 1 per customer.

I didn't know it was that cheap online too, thanks. I wouldn't have made the 2-hour round trip to the actual store for this given I already have multiple of each of these... But with a couple of button clicks you bet I'll take another set.

Wonder if the "1 per customer" will fail on me after I purchased the set once already immediately post-SDCC-2016 on the TRU site. The BOGO 40% off isn't quite working optimally, it took the 40% off 3 of the single figs instead of giving one of the discounts to the 2nd time around set. I WANT MY 40 CENTS BACK! Lulz.

Worth every penny even at full price. Such a shame they are having to dump these, I dunno why more people weren't on board for those sets. So cool they're in black and white IMO, maybe that turned casual buyers off. Also it was ridiculous how long after SDCC people were still paying ridiculous prices for them on eBay just because they had SDCC in the title, even though they were on shelves everywhere at TRU...and to my knowledge there is literally ZERO difference between the packaging/product from either channel.

Yeah I have gifts to give people so I picked up four of the Rooftop Combat sets today at TRU. They had all the sets in the wrong location though. The tagged area was empty and I found the sets by the figures. It was also buy one get one 40% off. So I got the four sets for around $9, normally about $139 I think before tax.

Ross is also having really good deals on TMNT items. Like the Technodrome playset for $80 when TRU has it at $150 originally $250. And some other deals as well at Ross.

I picked up a set of the white single figs, and doubles of the black figure building sets. Ended up paying $30 for what's normally around $140 in retail, yeah that's pretty sweet.

Whoa, that's insane. The deals aren't quite as good in Canada it seems; I actually picked up the rooftop set in-store yesterday for $16, down 60% from the original price. Only two were left, and I can't really complain about that deal either.

I already got the Raph/Casey set a while back for a similar clearance sale, so I got a couple solid additions to my li'l Mirage shrine on the cheap.

Thats cool. Thanks for posting this. Looks like Leo might also come with blue bandana as well.

The current Wave 2 of the Heroes line has been pretty hard for me to track down, I found 1 case so far at a Toys R Us which was almost ravaged by the time I got to it. Wave 1 is still clogging Walmarts -- well, parts of Wave 1 that is.

Also, with Mega, you never know how long these initiatives are going to last...so if their plan is to trickle out 1 turtle per wave for awhile then I really hope we make it to the end...

I'm mostly just glad to see that Mattel isn't dumping the TMNT brand entirely. There may be some hope of the last of the modern Mega Construx sets showing up, even if it is just through a liquidation chain.

I don't have them handy, but the monster high figures are in a different scale to the TMNT, halo and others. They are taller (long legs).
Maybe 30% taller?

This is good news. Just when I lost hopes of seeing more TMNT Megabloks.
Will be getting the coloured comic TMNT for sure.

About even split for me. I hope they do the whole main cast of TNG. But I want more turtles too. Keep hoping maybe they will do a toon colored version of Casey Jones.
