I did get that impression for the turtles but that it was a smaller subset of the weapons on the rack, the main ones. But for say the foot soldier I believe his most important weapons have only ever been displayed on the rack.

A second set of weapons unpainted and with the exact same plastic colour of the originals is what I would like the most.

That would put a few of them back on my radar depending on how funds are.

Man, at $30 each I would have been all over this line.

Ask and ye shall receive! I guess they have heard enough grumbling and actually did something about it. Now if they could just lower the cost $10 per figure...

They are very cool. But those things should be fifteen to twenty bucks each, man. And I barely believe in that....

I am SOOO happy they are including a second set of weapons! The painted ones with the nubs were such an eyesore.

I pre-ordered Splinter, Raph and the Foot Soldier from BBTS. I don't want to get in the habit of re-purchasing the entire vintage line...or whatever Super7 decides to tackle and/or can tackle, which is why I didn't get Baxter.

I just plan on getting the other three turtles and maaaaybe an Ace Duck if he ever turns up in this line. He was one of my favorite figures and an updated version in this line would be pretty cool.

More stuff and a lower price. Not asking much.

They're welcome to drop the sprued weapons all together as far as I'm concerned, especially if it means lowering the price. Everywhere these things are talked about a high percentage of the posts is about how ludicrous the price is. They're not going to change it for this wave but maybe they'll learn and change it for future waves. Figure it out, Super7!

I agree in that the price point is far too high for products like these. NECA offers ultimate figures for between $25 - $30, which is totally fair to me.

I'm a sucker either way for the main figures I want, but if the price were to lower, I'd absolutely consider purchasing more of the characters that I most likely will be passing on.

Awesome. Now that we know you're listening, Super 7:
  • Lower price
  • Discard weapons rack
  • Be transparent on ship dates

  • Shredder (pls, shirt on)
  • Genghis Frog*
  • Krang (Android)
  • Leatherhead
  • Metalhead (shiny!)
  • Mondo Gecko*
  • Muckman & Joe Eyeball
  • Ray Fillet*
  • Scumbug*
  • Slash*
  • Triceraton
  • Wingnut & Screwloose*
  • Antrax*
  • Chromedome
  • Merdude*
  • Scratch


You've got at least one preorder on all of those from me. Double for the asterisks (my personal most wanted of the most wanted)

Wow very welcome change. Now I'm thinking I would display Raph with his brown sai. Let's see that packaging and help seal the deal.

Um... Mattel's MOTU Classics wasn't even that cheap back in 2008 and those where more "mass produced" compared to Super7's niche made-to-order figures.

Marvel Legends costs about $20-$25 and they are mass produced with limited accessories (especially compared to TMNTU) and made by Hasbro the top 3 biggest Toy company in the world.

$45 is on the higher end of the price spectrum, but is what Classics/Ultimate have been going for. Heck the MOTU Collector's Choice William Stout Collection and the MOTUC Club Grayskull lines by Super7 goes for $50 a figure.

If they were $15 bucks,they would have barely any articulation and only come with one weapon. @ getting figures for that price in this inflated economy

You're right... what could I have been thinking?! Today's price point and all. Either way I can't wait to see the collection photos of the retro throwback sets you guys put together.

If this line blows up, will Super7 think about playsets and vehicle’s?

Just thinking about an updated Technodrome makes my shell tighten.

Love this, weapons rack perfect, painted additional weapons perfect, additional hands and goodies perfect.

As a highend figure collector and a TMNT completiest the $45 seems very reasonable to me.

I cannot express how excited I am for this line. If this line goes 40 to 50 figures deep and a vehicle/playset I would be ecstatic.

Bring on the figures!!!
