Totally Turtles re-release figures

Spotted these 'Totally Turtles' re-release figures on the UK Amazon website. So far it's just the four Turtles.

Probably one of the last waves of final Nick releases before the 2018 relaunch. I can see why Playmates wants to sell as many as they can before they have to change models to the new look.

Dang, they sure love re-releasing those first wave figures. They probably are the very best selling, so whatever works.

Honestly, I don't have the repaints with the irises painted in. I might think about getting these if they release in the USA.

Question on my mind, will they have the toon feet (3 clean toe slits) or the wave 1 feet (big ugly turtle toes)?

I would buy these because I never got doubles to open of the wave 14 pupil-ized versions. I do have them carded...both versions (toon feet, wave 1 feet).
Plus, new packaging, so I could stow these away and open up some of those wave 14 ones (I suspect these will be the more rare in the end).

For those of us in the USA, these appear to be identical to the Tales of the TMNT releases of the same names released last summer. And to answer your question DonnieLaForge, these do have the toon style feet.

I'm not 100% sure, but I don't believe any of the Tales of the TMNT re-releases and re-painted figures were released in the UK/Europe.
Perhaps someone from the UK can confirm?

Not exactly, their belts are brown. So they look to me to be the series/wave 14 figures.

Those were before B&R. In fact, I still haven't seen B&R wave yet here in my state.

Welp, if these come to the US I dunno who is gonna stock them. After my latest hunt last night I saw Target and Walmart planogram resets obliterated all pegs for any turtles product except for Half Shell Heroes still being out at Walmart.

The turtles section at Toys R Us was still there, soooo, maybe them?

Everything that had been on those pegs was in clearance, though not for much of a discount yet. This was at 2 of each store.

Yea Iíve been to every Walmart and target in my area (probably 10) and they hardly had anything at all. Target had their stuff for $4, picked up everything I could find.

Just seen the 5-inch Totally Turtles figures above in Smyths toys at Crayford, but they had belts in their bandana colours. Figures pictured on the back included the re-released Battle Shell figures, the kicking/punching figures and the gold Shredder with removable helmet.

Saw those in the toy store today. My son is after a mikey with 'nice toes' as he has the older figure with protruding toes. May grab one

Good to hear that these are popping up.
I wonder if all the figures on the back will actually get released with the 'Totally Turtles' logo.
