They are well sculpted, and the creators have an eye for accurate details, but. It is still the PD Turtles.

Hmm, as much as I hate the PD movie that Leo is tempting (He's the only one I liked) but $300 yikes

I wonder if they would make the 1990 Movie versions if there was enough fan demand via a online petition or something. It's the 25th anniversary of the movie so it would be a great chance for them to 'capitalize' on it.

Sadly they won't be cheap. Threezero' anew Heisenberg figure is $150 so the turtles probably be at least the same which means $600 for the set.

If they look as good when they're officially announced and they're spaced out well enough I might bite.
This was posted in the 2015 figures thread. I don't think the pricing has been confirmed yet, but looks like speculation ranging from $150-300ea.

Looked at an article about it earlier, don't know anything about Threezero and was trying to figure out if they were sculpting them as well or if they "just" do customizations, or... Their "about" page was no help.

Really nice Leo - love his sneakers lol - but that price, while cheaper than those other big statue pieces, is sadly still too painful for me.

Though I see poor Mikey has gone and lost his head again...

i was also going based off their prices for figures on amazon and their websites it seems like figures with unique sculpts and styles hit the 200+ mark..pretty much if its a body that cant be reused elsewhere

The difference between Threezero and other brands like Hot Toys and Enterbay is that they are priced around the same $250 range but the price includes shipping. Keep in mind the shipping cost is from China or Hong Kong so it's not bad that the shipping cost is included in the below $300 price tag. However, if you get taxed, that's another story....

Pay attention to their updates. Usually their website offers some exclusive accessories while keep the same price as the regular release.

Agreed. The quality of the figures is far better than typical TMNT stuff.

It's such a shame the PD designs are what they are.

I truly hope the price is closer to the 150 range. =/ they are great pieces!! and also, I agree, I do hope they make the original movie figures, especially because the 25 anniversary is here!!

not to be a downer but i would expect those looking to get these be ready to pay more along the 200 than 150 mark...again you have to figure in that its a whole new body sculpt as opposed to the standard human frame

Anyone familiar with this company/group have any guess on how big the figures are? And how long they'll be producing them?

IM Pretty sure the $300 price tag is for there statues which like Slideshow and other companies are always more expensive, these on the other hand a pose-able 1/6th scale figure likely cheaper I'd probably say $150-$250 price range

Going off the amazon range the figures are usually 1:6 scale and seem to range in price between 100-800 depending level of detail and body the figure requires


Examples:Walking Dead zombie starting at 106, Real Steel Ambush 330 and Dark of the Moon Megatron hitting 800

Not yet. These are just teaser images taken from a Tai Wan forum during their interview with 3A/ Threezero.

With their already scheduled Robocop, Transformers, Game of Throne figures, etc. I'm guessing we might be looking at the end of 2015 or early 2016.

Like mentioned above, don't have your hopes up too much guys. I don't see these got for anything less than $250USD. It's a realistic price point. High end collectibles in 1:6 are priced over $200. About $250-300. Just take a look at Sideshow's website.

The reason the Walking Dead zombie is starting at $106 is because of the long delay of any new Walking Dead characters, especially the human characters after the release of the zombie figure. People lost faith in 3A and the WD series zombie is dropping prices.
