Playmates Toys Future Looks Bright! Now w/ Release Date!

EDIT!!
Ladies & Mutants we have a release date!
I thought I'd take it upon myself to find out when the Classics line is coming out.
It's good to know they will be sold on their website as well since that opens up so many possibilities for a line like this!

Quote:
Thank you for asking, the TMNT line will be available retail August or September 2012. Pre orders can be made late July on our website.

Regards, Paula Billingsley

Consumer & Office Services

Playmates Toys Inc.
EDIT: MTV GEEK has the first look at the new toys both the Classics Line & the New CGI Show.
CLASSICS
NEW CG SERIES




It looks very bright!
Expect new highly detailed sculpts, better articulation, and more awesomeness than you can shake a stick at.
The first wave will have the turtles with Shredder and Splinter to follow.
Oh and get this we're getting a line very similar to Dc Universe Classics or even Masters of the Universe Classics.
They are basing them off the old toon for now but I asked if it did well could they pull from other things (Archie) and they said yes.
This guy's one supper impressed fan right now and I just can't wait till you see everything.

I really wanted to just grab the Mikey figure, run away, and face the consequences.

I'm surprised you're allowed to even say that little bit, but quite glad you did! As I said in the pizza box thread, coming from you, it's great news.

He didn't say much other than to get him a mop to clean up the drool on the floor... LOL... Yeah VM knows his stuff so I'm stoked about this...

Guess I need to get cracking on collecting the past figures, so I can fully focus on the new ones. That is if the world is still around come 2012.

Sweet action! This might make up for the NECA mess.

I'm not big into figures, but I'm really interested in seeing this oldschool line.

Yes! I was hoping somebody would venture into the gray area of their "contractual agreement" and give us some news about which figures we might be able to expect and in what style they might appear!

So we are tentatively confirmed that Splinter and Shredder will be in the new line, eh, Vaughn? It's no surprise, of course, but it is something for fans to hang their hats on.

I am going to be broke...very broke. I can't wait! Vaughn, any news of a collectible-esque line? Meaning, anything that is going to be along the lines of an exclusive set or something?
