Both Super7 and NECA did Slash, so there is a good chance that Slash could get the retro card treatment. In the meantime, Playmates seems to be focused on the 2k3 turtles.

I don't care what anyone says, I love these Playmates figures of the 4 brothers. I know they're just repaints of that old original Mirage comics set, but whether it's that set or this one, these sculpts seem to get a lot of hate. I think they're pretty great, though! I know they don't have a TON of articulation, but they're also basic $10 Playmates toys... so they're kinda par for the course, ya know?

But, ya. Really love these guys! They just REALLY hit a good, pleasing aesthetic for me. Plus, they scale well with the BST AXN Loyal Subject humans (which ironically the BST AXN TMNT don't). I added BST AXN Casey and an old Playmates movie Splinter (with a different robe to make him fit in better) to the shot for scale comparison.

Why is he called Ray Fillet if he's supposed to be the Archie incarnation...?

Huh... I guess it makes sense that they'd use these molds here, too, since they're already using them for repaints in those online packs. Make the most of 'em and all.

My kingdom for some Foot Soldiers, though. I really wanna do some affordable army building, but haven't even seen ONE Foot Soldier anywhere...

I don't even see them on Amazon. I think mikey0 might be confusing these with the Archie color repaints.

They’re in Texas: https://imgsed.com/p/CxmLBu_sLUa/

Unfortunately, the Rat King has been dropped from the lineup.

Are these Walmart exclusives? Or will these land at Target too?

My Walmart never ever has classic TMNT but my local Target always has the storage shells, mutating, giant, and recently villains sets.

It’s too early to tell if these are coming to Target, but the Wingnut wave was at Walmart before it was sold at Target.

Man I wish Playmates will re-release their 5 inch Mirage line without the godawful etching. Those molds are pretty good by itself, probably one of their best work.

There seems to be a running change in paint apps with the more recent releases of Baxter Stockman. Earlier releases had white teeth and recently I have seen blue teeth versions in stores.

Ya, I'm not a fan of the etching being sculpted, either. And it would be nice if there was wrist articulation. Other than that, though, I think they're amazing looking figures, and I'm glad to see someone else that thinks so, as well.

Playmates just keeps getting chintzier and chintzier with their paint apps on these reissues. I still abhor what they did with Bebop more than any of their other reissues.

Looks like Casey Jones from the OG line is getting reissued. Pics from Toy Fair

Lol pixel Dan mentioned an embargo on stuff he has seen at toy fair but he’s not allowed to video or take pics, I wonder if it’s more characters from the vintage lien
