It is indeed the SDCC Night Shadow Leo figure, they were GBP 23.00.
I had no idea they were for sale at Hamleys, and there were plenty of them left too!

I have seen plenty online for a better price. Still wonder if the other 3 will be done in that style

There are some on eBay in the UK for around GBP 20.00, for me it would have been more expensive since shipping costs at least GBP 6.00.

In other news, Bart Smit has made a stupid mistake in their current flyer, advertising the basic Nick figures, but putting a picture of the Classic figures next to them. The Classic figures are not even being sold at Bart Smit stores.

Thanks for sharing those pictures from Belgium.
Toys R Us France and Spain now have the Battle Shell figures and the Lair Playset in stock on their websites.
Toys R Us Spain seems to be handing out TMNT Mini Mutants Aerial Assault figures when you spend 30 on TMNT toys.

Has anybody seen the sewer playset? Giochi Preziosi advertises with it in the little booklet you get with each figure but even though I have been to a lot of toy stores the last couple of weeks I haven't seen the sewer anywhere.

It also seems to me the Kraang, foot soldier and April were cut from the French/Benelux line or did anyone find them?

The playset is available in France and Spain just now, so maybe it will arrive in other countries soon. Though I doubt it will be in stores.

I'm not sure what's going on with Kraang, April and the Foot Soldier, the only place I've found them (in The Netherlands) is online at Toys R Us.

That's weird. I've seen them in multiple stores in both Belgium and France...
They're certainly not cut out!

That being said, they do seem far less in numbers than the other figs. I think that there might be only one of each in every retail box.
That way they disappear quickly of course...

That's why April was the very first figure I bought.

where did you find the figures in Belgium? I haven't been able to find them yet.

I might get them from Toys R Us but I like to see figures before I buy them. I check if the paint is clean and that the eyes or looking straight. That kind of stuff. I hope Fixer is right about the one per case. I think I'll go and ask next time.

I don't see why they wouldn't sell the sewer playset in stores here. IMO it's the best playset in this line. It's big. It's fun. It gets great reviews online. Why wouldn't they sell it here and make more money and get more happy customers? The box is probably too big for most of the smaller toy stores but I it could really do well at the big mall stores in the cities I think.

And just for fun - here's my new TMNT collection so far:


Blurry shot of the new nick TMNT. Great figures but I don't get why Raph is so much darker / different skin color than his brothers. This collection is on hold now 'til the new figures start showing up here.


Classics. They're hard too find but they're there. I've only seen these at ToysXL. I'll probably get Raphael and Leonardo as well and I'm hoping to add Bebop later this year. Not sure about Rocksteady yet.


Lego! I think they're too expensive but I so wanted to see how these turned out that I bought Raph vs. Fishface. Then I bought Mikey vs. Kraang. Now I'm thinking about getting the sewer. These things are just too addictive.

The Classics figures seem to be ToysXL exclusives in The Netherlands, good luck finding Raph and Leo Hellboy.

I received a new flyer from Top1Toys today, the TMNT toys are advertised on two pages!
But what's even more interesting, you get a free "Special TMNT Present" when you spend 10 on TMNT toys this week.

I'm very curious what the present will be, hope to find out soon.

That's really weird, I guess they had a lot of them left over.

They probably still have lots of 2007 figures, specially the Mini Mutants ones, since TMNT didn't even make it to theaters over here and the film was only released in DVD many months after the figures hit shelves. It was a huge disaster.

Here's the Top1Toys ad I mentioned yesterday.
Funny that they also put the Fast Forward figures in there.
Now to find out what that present is!

Probably overstock from a few years ago...
But what the heck are those Fast Forward bagged figures anyway? I've never seen those before!

The Fast Forward figures are from Italy, the bags include one figure and stickers that could be placed in a 2011 Calendar.
For some reason Top1Toys stores got them at the same time as the new Nickelodeon toys.



I have not had a chance to visit the store yet, but called Top1Toys about the "special TMNT present" (see previous posts). It's stickers...
