Bloody beans I hate toy distribution. They push them out faster than lightning in some places and in others we're stuck waiting like 3-4 waves behind.

Why does 80s Leo look nothing like 80s Leo?

It's Nick Leo wearing the same disguise as his Fred Wolf counterpart, just like the Rock & Bop figures. I assume, anyway.

Eh, I'll pass on these.

Which is probably a good thing for my wallet, because I NEED the Monsters.

I normally wouldn't care for that sorta thing, but those monster variants are literally Ciro's drawings come to life. They've got his facial style & everything. Do want! Hope the paint's ok.

Thanks, your answer helped me decide where to secure one. Got one for retail + shipping on eBay, and shipping was a bit more than I'd consider reasonable, but considering how my local Wal-Mart either is hit early/often by a collector or scalper or just doesn't get s**t in (I've never seen any of the 100% WM exclusives there before), I figure it's better than going up there every week or so to chance seeing one.

I grabbed one off ebay for 30 shipped since I wont be back home for another 3 months. I figured it was reasonable.

Pretty sure those are NEVER accurate.

That in-stock notice refers to the SKU, not individual figures. Meaning, If you have TMNT figures at your Target, it will list any TMNT figure on the site as in-stock at your Target. This includes the cancelled Pet 3-Pack.

Are all of the Warrior Horses Wal-Mart exclusives, or just Usagi's?

I've seen Mikey and Raph in Targets, as well as Wal-Marts.

Ok so there actually IS some new product Playmates didn't talk about at SDCC.

More repaints, basically.

You know the little blind-bag figures they did, whose designs were based on the first wave Nick figures? They've been released in two separate window box sets (Rooftop Ruckus Sets 1 & 2, respectively). You get 4 turtles, Shredder, & A Kraang droid.

There are 2 different kinds of turtles, same molds with different deco. One's the originals, same paint jobs as the regular toys. The others have a a uniformed bright kelly green that is moderately translucent, & their belts/pads/weapons are metallic gold. You get 2 standard & 2 translucent in either pack, so you have to buy them all to have matching sets. I don't remember the other characters' variants, other than that the secondary Kraang is translucent purple (why not blue, like in the damn show?!). Retail price is 20 bucks a pop, saw 'em in Target. Not sure about exclusivity. No pics 'cause I don't have a phone.

Also, this-

Grabbed an Usagi with the horse last week and then a fellow collector I met through instagram helped me get the XL Usagi. Kind of bummed that Wal Mart gets so many exclusives 'cos the boxes always get messed up in there. I've seen some of the warhorse figures in DESTROYED boxes. Like, obliterated.

I'm really hyped for the Monsters set. Based on the pictures of the packaging from ToyFair they look like they're going to be the basic size/price, but when the pics of the figures were first released I imagined them as being the same scale/size as the wrestler set. Kind of a double edged sword for me 'cos I enjoy the larger scale, but I enjoy the price point of the basic line. haha

That reminds me, I actually saw the street sweeper a couple weeks back at Toys R Us, I snapped a pic and totally forgot about it.
