They made aproper set of mystic and mirage turtles so they seem to be fixing things playmates f*cks up on. If Minimates made a set a set of Mutanimals they'd be proper.

I wish I knew how playmates decides what figures to make & not make. I mean the squirrelanoids & dream beavers each have one major episode & they get figures, but Pidgeon Pete & Biotroid are in multiple episodes even becoming fan faves & yet they won't receive figures??? I dont get it, even the Creep got a 2nd EP that was awesome but I bet we never get a creep figure!

Pidgeon Pete is a super-goofy charachter, as a humanoid bird-neerd, he is worthless in combat.
His super powers are flying (poorly) and "bread-rage" (facepalm).

Besides all that, he is ugly and gross.

I would never by such a disgrace and I don't think kids would rank him high on their must-have-lists.

>All the above goes for Kirby Bat aswell. Playmates should not make unpopular, weak figures if they want to make maximum profit.

Dude...you really hate Pidgeon Pete haha! For me, his grossness is part of the appeal. Just like Mutagen Man or Baxter fly whos popularity has lasted from OT despite them being super gross! With Pete being part of the Mighty Mutanimals, Playmates really needs to make him a figure to complete the team. Ppl will buy him for that reason alone & to touch on his combat skills a bit, he went toe to toe with Baxter haha! Also, Mondo Gecko's bio actually states that he can't fight yet he gets a figure so I wouldn't bank on playmates making figures based on their fighting skills...you really dont find his bread-rage funny?! He's the comic relief of the team, like Mikey is for the turtles.

Seriously, I'm definitely sensing some Pigeon Pete prejudice here, not everyone becomes a cute mutant. Do you feel this way about other bird mutants? You're not am Avianist, are you?

I have no strong opinion about the Squirrelnoids, they are just "generic monsters" to me. I have one

I never liked the comic relief characters, even as a kid i despised them.
Jar-Jar Binks, Godzooky, 2007-Frenzy, Blip (space Ghost) and so on.

But yeah, I can accept him as a figure...just to complete the Mighty Mutanimals team.

I feel compashion for Dr. Cluckingsworth (M.D.), the poor creature's brain is about to collapse under its own weight. He (or she?) should be spared his or her suffering.
I'm not a bird-guy, no

I just find the character, Mr Kirby...shallow and pedantic
Also I'm grossed out about his enlarged mutagen-veins that seem about to burst.

English isn't my native tounge. I saw someone spelled Pigeon with a d, so I just followed the leader.

It's okay to not know things, dude. You only look like a dope when you try to cover it up.

Where playmates like to do seasonal releases they have been putting out some stuff in February and March. I would assume savanti Romero was planned to release then, but I also thought he would come out with muckman at that time and supposedly they axed him.

The figures were coming out in waves of 4-6 new ones at a time but they seem to be rolling them out now as a couple added to the case assortments.

Here in Canada we still get them in big waves though cause they only do about 2-3 new assortments a year for basic figures.

Just saw the trailer for TMNT 2. If we get figures for the sequel, I hope those have better paint apps and look more film accurate.

I would even take some S.H. Figuarts figures of the Turtles in their sequel looks.

Hopes for TMNT 2 Movie toys (hopefully we'll see some at Toy Fair in February):

Bring back the Classic figures for adult collectors. Just go all in, give us all four turtles, bebop, rocksteady, shredder, splinter, casey, april.

If not? Well, I hope Revoltech or some other Japanese company will make us some good versions of the new movie stuff.
