I totally want Shredder, but I won't be gutted if he gets cancelled. Used to it by now.

And showing stuff off that does get released but years later. For example they showed prototypes of R2 & 3PO way back in 2014 (I think) and they're finally releasing next month.

Yeah, that sometimes happens but there are many, many cases where they never release anything.

Just received Leo, he is awesome. What a cool figure. Soon his brothers will accompany him

I also hope they bring out Shredder, fingers crossed.

I won't be getting this Shredder since I got the NECA box set Shredder coming. My Figuarts will end here

I'm sure Figuarts has their hand tied as far as what figures they can release but I really hgope Shredder gets released. I got my Neca set ordered but I'm always down for more Shredder. I hope they do more characters too.

Response to the four turtles has been amazing by fans. Now we have to wait and see if the sales justified them releasing Shredder or any other figures.

I hope everyone who wants Shredder supported this line and at least bought 1 of the turtles.

I don't even really care for the Figuarts Shredder. The helmet/mask just looks awkward. It's like it sits too high on his brow or maybe its just too bulky...I don't know...something about it seems off.

These did really well. I had 48 of each turtle and I am now down to my last set and I have 3 Raphs extra. I am not normally a high volume seller, but these flew off the shelf for me and I still get people asking me about Shredder.

They better continue this line damnit!

I'm still very interested in this Shredder, and hope it comes out. I have the NECA set coming, but I think this Shredder might be the best of the two.

Giving NECA FW turtles a miss due to this (v hard choice BTW). I hope they continue the line.... Shredder, Krang, Splinter, April. Not much to ask.

Feel like I've put all my eggs in one basket with Figuarts. Really hope they don't disappoint.

Well Leo and Don came out about 2 months ahead of the other 2. I wouldnt compare who sold out first.

Historically, sales numbers across all TMNT lines say that Leo is always the hottest turtle. Numbers usually say that Leo outsells his other brothers by an insane margin.

It seems like this line is pretty much dead, which is a shame, hopes were high. Though without at least Shredder, April and a Foot Soldier (Classics Bebop and Rocksteady work well enough for display)I really have no interest in these any longer. I'm pretty certain my four, plus the aforementioned Classics figures and my custom Party Wagon are getting closer and closer to getting a for sale sign.

While these were cool figures Im glad I passed on them. The new neca stuff is just way better.

Now with shredder probably not coming out I am really glad I skipped this line.

They're certainly not better in the articulation or overall material quality department... & there's no reason to say Shredder's not coming out just yet.
