Thanks for the shots!
You're welcome.

I'm glad he's not underscaled with the basic turtles or something (as far as I'm aware) at least.

I'd say he is, even without having seen him in the series yet.

Usagi could have been a bit taller so he'd be taller then the Turtles, but considering Playmates relationship to scale, he's fairly close and looks great.

Playmates is such a tease sometimes. They really can put out a good inexpensive figure if they want to. Excited to try and find Usagi.

Got Usagi home (only one I oped for today... my toy expenses are huge this month! Will pick up Samurai Turtles later.)... Opened him, really love him as a figure. Great articulation for this line. Missing a waist swivel though. Otherwise, he is fantastic! I think he will make my top 5 fav figures from the entire 2012 series figure line when all is said and done.
Oh dang! I'm going to be up in the Bay area this week! I think I know what I'm doing every day...

It's jus weird because the protos had such a pinhead. Glad they fixed that. Jus wish they made him more readily available.

I never liked the current incarnation of the toddler turtles, since they only came 2-to-a-pack and look far inferior to the 4Kids era 4-pack, but the ooze splatter detail is probably an improvement, in my eye.

Yeah and why refer to Muckman as "Basic Muckman?"

The Brute Shredder repaint reminds me of the Shredder in the 2001 CGI pilot.

Lots of similarities in the color palettes sure, but I highly doubt Playmates designed that repaint with that in mind. They probably just thought it looked cool or would help sell more toys like all the other repaints.

Shredder looks cool in Gold armor in general, I'm surprised we don't see that more often.

"COULD be a little more detailed..." hahaha Dan always the optimist lettin Playmates get away with anything. Standing this Usagi next to the vintage versions is just embarrassing, like when Randy tweeted the pic of the vintage movie stars next to the '14 figures.

Yeah I doubt there's any reason for any of the palettes in these, let alone super obscure ones. I just never thought of CGI pitch Shredder when I saw him until it was brought up.
