I'm buying all these figures purely out of nostalgia.
So if they're gonna be making unique designs, that's an easy pass for me.

Fair enough. But I am really curious about prototype designs (not so much for the core turtles), especially those that Varner hasn't disclosed fully to the public. A lot of ideas end up on the cutting floor.

I'd have to check when I got home but I think it's a line wide thing and none of them have holes.

I'd be all for that! Really excited to see some of those holes in the line filled in.

I respect that. Personally I'm probably the opposite. I have no nostalgia for most of the variants and some of the vintage characters that never appeared in comics or show so they're easy skips for me. But one of the things I loved about MOTUC was how deep it went and getting those missing characters in that style. Like Chote (or Shoate as the toyline called him), the Mirage fan in me really needs a Savanti Romero to go with him and I think Savanti would look great in the vintage style. The missing frogs like Dask mentioned, the final mutanimals, Ninjara, Karai, Armaggon, etc. There's so many major secondary characters who never got a figure back in the day and the idea of getting them in this line really excites me.
