Mega Construx made a great Ice cream kitty and a acceptable Spike that are closer in scale to the Playmates toys. But disappointed that we didn't get more of the female characters. Would have loved more of the season 3 characters like the other beavers, and most importantly the Creep. I would love a Creep figure.

I think the Titan series (which i believe they are mimicking here) has more articulation then these. All in all cheap cheap cheap

they even had to Photoshop the bo in Donnie's hand because the actual figure cant hold it the way they show on the back of the box
I haven't seen this 4 pack. Every time I see the individual ones all I can think is they look like the old school bootlegs.

There's definitely the dreaded sense that the figures most of us are missing may not get more shipments. It's mostly irrational paranoia, and in all likelihood we will see more, but rare figures become rare in years past for reasons just like this. A toy line winding down, the company pulling out, wanting to move onto the next thing, etc.

However, I can't imagine Playmates doing nothing for the Christmas season. My hope is we get a few good solid shipments out there around the holidays before the book is closed on TMNT 2012 for good.

===============================================

So now that the toy line has a finish line, and we know every figure we'll ever get, I'll go ahead to do a retrospective.

Figures I'm most disappointed not getting: Shinigami, Alopex, Kavaxas, Jei, Chromedome, the other Dream Beavers, Mona Lisa, Creep, Wyrm, the animal pack, and War Horses for Leo and Donnie (come on, seriously!)

Figures we got that I would have traded any day for any of the above characters:
Attila the Frog (laughable)
Napoleon Bonafrog (many will disagree, but I hated this episode, and the character is weak)
Kirby Bat
Robug
Ooze Flinging Turtles
Savage Mikey
Water Spitting Raph/Mike
Turtles that transform into weapons
The new boxing/kicking turtles (horrible sculpts!)
Rahzar (I'd rather he never double-mutated in the show, but that's a different topic)
Head-droppin Turtles (unless they were done better)
Tongue-Poppin' Donnie (They couldn't come up with a different gimmick from Mikey? Or with a better sculpt?)

Figures I'm glad we got that I NEVER thought we would:
A human Karai (and VERY well done!)
A revised Shredder so soon after the first one, with an awesome sculpt, and removable helmet that fits perfectly
MOUSER army pack
Pizza Thrower Vehicle (ok not a figure, but seriously, this was awesome)
Armaggon despite his brief appearances (when I saw him I remember saying I want him as a figure, so it was nice to have)
Comic Book Turtles (in the basic line? They were out of place, but very cool)
Usagi Yojimbo (though I have yet to acquire one)

I'm happy we got Usagi, Muckman, Armaggon, and the Beavers. Even if those figures were terrible, it was the thought that counts.

Wait, what? How are they not getting a set?? (Sorry if I'm late on this knowledge, I haven't kept up with this thread in a long time.)

Took at peek at my Walmart just yesterday and their amount of TMNT stuff is still extremely limited, but I did see a war horse set, one each, for Usagi, Raph, and Mikey... no Leo or Donnie and I figured they were either already grabbed or just not out yet. (I mean, what store puts out just three things... surely the rest are still waiting in a box to go out and these three were just loose and on another cart.) But that is seriously disappointing and weird if Leo and Donnie aren't getting them. (I swear they are in the new ad on tv, aren't they??)

Poor Donnie gets shafted half the time as it is, and Leo? That's strange. What are the chances he doesn't get one because Usagi's horse color scheme is blue...? God forbid Leo get a blue one and make Usagi's maybe black or silver.

I wouldn't count warhorse Don/Leo out yet.

That's an easy slap together nothing new 2 pack that fits playmates f&@k you attitude.

The real shame is Half Shell Heroes getting axed.

That's sad, they never even tried to do enough with Half Shell Heroes. (Suppose that means any future tv/disc specials are dead in the water as well.)

Guess I aught to be glad that I already bought a handful of them last year for my nephew for when older.

I'm hoping for a surprise Leo/Don horse too, but, here's my plan if I don't get one...

Use the vintage purple-armor horse for Don, use Usagi's blue-armor horse for Leo, and use the vintage "rebel soldier warhorse" for Usagi.

In fact, I already snagged both of the vintage horses for this purpose and I really like how the purple one fits in. It gives the bros 2 black and 2 white as well! Symmetry!

This is a good idea...

I always wanted a Ho Chan figure. Mostly for Big Trouble in Little China purposes.

"80s Leo"

I can't wait for this line to be done.

Really hoping Rise brings it.
