I asked ThreeZero about Bebop and Rocksteady a few months ago, they then said the release would be in August, but it's now been moved to September.

Leo and Mikey (OOTS) should have been out by now too.
Maybe all four Turtles will be released at the same time since Raph and Donnie were listed for 'October - December' and that's not so far away now.

At least none of the OOTS figures have been cancelled (yet) like the Eastman figures.

Little surprised those who prefer a much grittier look weren't at least mildly more interested. I do like the art Eastman did for these, but it looks better as art, I guess.


As for OotS... I was hoping these would have been out already, but didn't the set from the first film take about a year? Hoping that maybe their estimated dates have just been severely optimistic. Esp with all these other brands they are pumping out as well and each figure needs time to hopefully get the appropriate attention to detail.

If I recall, preorder opened for these last Oct. For the first set, did they wait until they were entirely done before shipping any? Or did many early orders go out at some point while later orders still waited a bit?

If the Eastman ones had be $50-60 premium figures rather than 1/6 I'd have ordered them without a second thought. I like the look and think they'd make a cool set, just not at the price point 1/6 scale collectables go for these days.

I liked Mikey and Leo, but the Don and Raph had a weird look to me that made me skip them. The overhead bandanna headwrap stuff I dont like along with the tiger stripes.

Plus 1/6th scale were all over the place and they were last to the party.

Agreed. In the art I don't mind, but it was sculpted into the model and creeps me out because (imo) it came out looking more like slash marks in Raph's flesh rather than just stripes.

Esp visible on his right calf in this image:
Spoiler:



Leg wounds... *icky cringy feels* But if someone wanted to repaint them as wounds to get some major body damage, I suppose there's that.

I ordered Donnie from the first movie through ThreeZero and it indeed took a year for him to arrive, so there's still hope I guess.

However, it has been over a year now since the pre-order for Bebop and Rocksteady went live.

True, B&R's preorder was when, July [of] last year or around that? At least they keep including them in the release schedule so they'll prob surface at some point. (I would think they'd surely have produced quite a few already that are sitting waiting?) Maybe they're just harder to make.

Yeah, pre-orders for Bebop and Rocksteady started July 22nd last year.
I also wonder what's taking them so long.

I got an email from Threezero stating the OotS TMNT would be released the end of this year.

It's an Out of the Shadows film version.

Good to hear, perhaps all four will indeed be released at the same time.

So did B&R finally ship out? Saw someone commented on the company's FB page thanking them and mentioned he had a (German) review on YouTube.

They have indeed (finally) been released this week!
There are serveral reviews on YouTube for Bebop and Rocksteady.

No word yet on the Turtles, but they have not been cancelled so that's a good thing.

Can i safely say on these forums that i dont like the look and proportions of these turtles? I know its KEvin's work but he did better, i dont know why they look so weak, kinda too human proportions and V shaped torsos , not my cup of tea, a bit like next mutation but worse.
Theyre canceled i see... they look like custom figures made from some wrestler figures by 11 year old kids, no necks, proportions very linear and overall bad, whoever sculpted these should reconsider his job.Worst turtles figures ive seen and its sad cause its based on kevin's work .

Update... Bleh. We still have a while to wait for these Turtles. Emailed them today for an update on it and was told 2nd quarter 2018 for Leo.

Can't say I'm surprised, esp since they haven't made it onto the shipping schedule, but was hoping that Dec. estimate would be true. I hope the longer wait at least ensures a really good job done on them.



And here I was hoping to ask for a case for him for my b-day, if not for this Christmas, but b-day may not work out either since it's in April. 2nd quarter, but the early third... Darn. Maybe gift card toward it instead.

So the Turtles have been delayed again? I guess that means Raphael and Donatello will ship even later, unless all four do get released at the same time.

Hope they don't get cancelled after all.

I did receive Bebop and Rocksteady a few weeks ago, and I must say they are really awesome!

Preorders for these were also up as a two figure set so one other one may be available with Leo 2nd quarter. I just don't remember which one.
