The regular. He looks cool and has a lot of articulation, but he's not very posable due some questionable design choices - I'm going to have to do some mods this weekend so he can reach his full potential.

Spotted in Smyths Toys, Gallions Reach:
80s Leo, Bebop & Rocksteady
Samurai Raph, Mikey & Leo (but no Usagi)
Micro Mutants - Donnie's Lab, Raph's Rooftop & Leo's Dojo (I've been hoping these would come out in the UK as I have the mid-90s micro Leo/sewer playset with Leo & Mikey and the mini Party Wagon & Ninja News Cycle with Toon Raph but no Donnie).

Searching high and low in Oxfordshire for Usagi - no joy yet. Closest I have come is Botley Road Toys R Us, which had the Samurai line and the 80's line, every fgure APART from Usagi! Damn!

He's going for about £30 on eBay, which I'm not willing to pay if I can pick him up for £10 from a shop.

I have 2 blue Usagi's now as I picked one up from Very thinking it was the Samurai one.

On the upside I got the XL Usagi today.

Is the 80's Leo any good?
I'm hoping for something similar to Undercover Donnie

80's turtles

Picked up 80's Rocksteady and Bebop today along with Usagi Yojimbo
The three of these have really great detailing - Would recommend picking these up! I got mine from Amazon. Looking forward to displaying these once I've moved to Northampton!

Got him! £9.99 Amazon, he came last week, but I haven't opened him yet. Looks beautiful in the box! I'm tempted to get him in his Samurai gear too.

I was fortunate to bid on the old Usagi figure (the one that came with the Dinosaur) on eBay and somehow no-one else bidded. Got him for £15, boxed. If anyone has this figure in good condition, unboxed with all accessories I'd be happy to trade my boxed figure.

I don't really keep or collect figures in boxes, but it would be a shame to open this older Usagi figure as I imagine he is relatively rare to find boxed.

Raphael weapons

Hey everyone,
A bit of a long shot - do any of you by chance have a spare set of Raph's Sai's in the dark grey (or just one spare).
We've just moved and the one box that got dropped by the removal co had most of my current turtles in resulting in the loss of a sai some where. A long shot, i know, but if you don't ask...

Thankfully my comic style Raphael from SDCC was safe 'phew!'

Looks like the TMNT line is starting to wind down in the UK, to my eye. Hardly any new stock, most places offering them in the sale bin.

My local 'big' Sainsburys had no TMNT on the shelves at all!

I noticed a seller on Amazon UK had all four of the OOTS 'Ninja Duel' sets.
For those that don't know what sets I mean:


If I remember correct only the Raph Vs Bebop and Leo Vs Rocksteady sets were released as Asda exclusives in the UK. Those pop up on eBay UK sometimes.

Anyway, I ordered the Donnie and Mikey sets from the Amazon seller and they do have a Flair sticker. Just wondering if anyone had ever seen these two sets in stores in the UK?

Spotted in Toys R Us in Bromley - the TMNT retro figures. They only had the 4 turtles (the range also includes Splinter, Shredder, Krang, a Foot Soldier, Bebop & Rocksteady although an advert in the TMNT comic said there were 5 figures to collect but pictured the 4 turtles, Splinter and Shredder). I would have bought Mikey but the paint apps were bad and the figures didn't seem as bright as the originals.

Are these the retro 1988/89 classics?

Yeah,
I'd like to know this too.
the retro's i thought were the three 80's figures (Leo in coat, Bebop and Rocksteady)

in other news - any Bucky o'hare fans? Kapow are selling the new figures of this (or at least the pre order)

Yes, the ones like the Raph at the bottom of this page.
