Toys R Us had some new Toys for Halloween...they were costume weapons that were alot better quality than the $15 sets they've been selling for a while. They were with all the costumes. The Kitanas and Nunchukes were sold individually (qty 1) for $4.99 each for the Kitana and $2.99 for the Nunchukes. They had the Bo which was also $4.99...no site of the sais.

Between two different Wal-Marts, I saw 5 Baxters today(but no Claw Shredders, I was really hoping to see him today).

Baxter is... well, we all know, very inaccurate. Though he's not as bad as I expected. He looks better without all the extra arms on him IMO, with all 5 of those on there's just too much going on. I just stuck the legs on the middle set of pegs so he sits lower to the ground, and kept the 5 extra arms off, and though he's not cartoon accurate, he's good enough.

He'll also be perfect for customs. If you ignore the incorrect colors(or paint them correctly yourself), the headsculpt isn't really as bad as it first appeared to be(he even has a sculpted scar over the left side of his head, from when he lost that eye).

My Mam was in Toys 'r' Us, Leeds, England at the weekend, and she picked up Space Hoppin' Mike and Don but they didn't have Raph and Leo, so I guess the Space Hoppin turtles are out there. They also had the Toddler Turtles, but no sign of other figures like the Foot Fire Mystic, etc. They also have the SWAT Battle Team there, but they were sold out when my Mam tried to get it.

Still no sign of new figures in Ireland

Only new stuff I've seen are two Deep Diving Turtles, a Silver Sentry and a Guardian. All the figures were badly damaged so I passed. The stores in my area suck. I can't find anything and when I do everythings very damaged.

The only highlight of my toy run was finding a new variation of Fighting Gear. The new package is really cool. They only had Leo and Mike but they too were smashed.

Today in Banba Toymaster, Henry Street, Dublin, Ireland they had all 4 Space Hoppin' Turtles AND Multi-Arm Shredder. They had 2 of each Turtle (I bought Raph and Leo, had the other two already from import) and 4 Shredders. I asked the guy who stocks the aisle of they had any more like Triceratons and Fugitoid and stuff but he said everything was put out (liar, unless the cases we get have the four Turtles packed with Shredder). I was really surprised to get the Multi Arm Shredder, it usually takes at least 6 months for figures to get over here from America. Disappointed that none of the others from his wave were out though

Saw like three Utroms today between various places. I saw a Multi-Arm Shredder and at first i got really excited because I've so few of them that it immediately registered in my brain as Claw Shredder . The only TMNT related surprise was I saw a lone Armorized Shredder which I haven;t seen in a long while.

well alot has come out since the forums went down..these are in stores now:

Doctor Malignus, Usagi, Ninja Knights, Ripped Up turtles, Battle Bike Turtles, turtle Tunnler, Hover Chopper, All 6 Air Ninja figs, Turbo Bashers...

Not sure if the Giant and Mini Fighting Gear were reported but they are out of course..

I think that might be it but if I missed something lemme know...

By the way, all the figures except for the Air Ninjas and Turbo Bashers were found here in florida in various stores...the others were found in california, when i went there for the holidays...they are $10 each so I couldnt get many...

It's been out for ages over here. They have loads left over in the toy store down the road from me.

Sword Of Tengu.

I thought they'd come out in WALMART or TOYSRUS, but I never saw it.
Where do you live anyway?
