Am i the only one here thinking this pixel-painting style is kinda stupid? I mean it's ugly and it doesn't make any sense.

I mean I like it better than the Wave 2 Toon Turtles. It's an acquired style I guess but I like the feeling that they popped out of the arcade game. I think the multi colored foot soldiers they did for the SDCC box and Slash look really great. I'm hoping in the future they do the other color foot soldiers with different weapons. The only thing I worry about is the line is basically out of hero characters at this point unless they do April & Splinter in the arcade deco later on.

You're not alone. Given the choice between pixellated designs and plain designs, I'll choose the plain the designs every time.

The VGA paint scheme is an acquired taste, and I do not like it. But it gotta have its fair share of fans as they're still doing it.

Interestingly, it looks like Toon Raph is getting another new Sai design, making it the third Sai design he's had.

You're joking right?
Wave2 toon is single toned.... they are better than wave1 toon to be honest.

I like pixelated turtles.
I don't love them, but i like them.... better than all the classic collections playmates put out.

Thought I'd share this since a lot of people have been wondering about removing the pixels. Candy Kappa does it about half way down.

I don't even care for the cel shading attempts on the toon-based turtles. Just makes it look weird (and bootleggy) from most viewing angles.
I love the sculpts. Both the pixels and the black "toon" lines look awful. Can they give us one normal color scheme without getting all artsy? I wish the pixels and black lines were repaints for those who like weird variants, rather than the main paint scheme. I'm going to wait it out and hope for a normal paint job.

I agree with you and others that I love the Turtles in Time figures but I do not like at all the pixel application and dark shading on them. I like the additions of Raph's new pair of sai and Shredder's new blades and weapon but I can't get over the pixels and shading either. I'm someone who would be all over these as Turtles in Time is my all time favorite TMNT game, but I can't buy them with the pixels and shading on them.

Does anyone know if wave2 (Leatherhead & Super Shredder wave) comes in single packs or does it come in 4 pack like the first arcade turtles?

Because if it comes in a 4 pack, i am not getting it.
