I'm pretty sure they'll announce Leo tomorrow. I'm going to guess right now that it's at least $350.

I don't see the appeal of this look at all.

Leo is $350 and goes onsale tomorrow. The exclusive is limited to 500 and comes with a red bandana head. There are tons of pics on Figures.com

I am glad I got the first Sideshow statues for $200 each!! Seems like they are really taking advantage of those who missed then.....almost doubling the price in only a couple of years. I got my massive 24" premium Sideshow Master Chief for $400...and these are 10" smaller!! I'm glad I'm not a fan of the style of these but good luck to those going for the exclusive tomorrow!!

Nice....congrats! Is there even a regular version or just the "exclusive,"? Does the reg go onsale once the exclusive is sold out.

Not shipping till May-July 2017?? That's just crazy to me

No idea. I just want to be able to build red team.

I like the not shipping till later thing because I can use the monthly payment plan. The plan doesn't even start charging me 40/mo until December this year.

I mean... yeah. I don't mind the designs, they're a little chunky for my tastes, but I like them more than, say, BayTurtles. That said, I don't see the appeal in paying $350 a pop for a redesign/"reimagining" kind of look like this.

What would be cool is if they'd do lines patterned after iconic comic artist's styles, like the Batman Black & White statues. Do a set of statues in an A.C. Farley style, or Mateus Santolouco, or Eric Talbot...

Good ideas...

I really like this style myself. There are pics of all 4 on Sideshow in an art print.

I love this design. Maybe I am alone...thats fine. I am buying.

They are also pretty huge...15x10x13. That might explain the costs a bit.

I like them not sure if I'll order these since I already got an order from mondo and the Eastman turtles.

this is kinda how I wish they looked in the bay movies.

I agree. Replace Bay turtles with these guys...

I know I am in the minority on this one, but I think this is amazing...

The paint job enhances the look a lot, in my opinion. Still going to pass, but it looks a lot better than I originally thought.

Better than Bay turtles, no doubt, but still not as endearing as the mirage, toon, Henson, or other familiar designs.

Really dislike the black gloves Leo is wearing.

I wasn't going to buy them, but at an edition size of 500 it will sell out rather quickly. Figure if I don't like it in person it will be easier to sell it later than it will be to track it down later.

* And as of about midnight the day of release, it's already sold out. This of you who aren't familiar with how Sideshow works can now join the waitlist, which doesn't guarantee an order, but also doesn't require a deposit unless the your order converts, which Sideshow will notify you about should the order convert.
