They are the handpainted protos, and it took a drop on the floor for Shredder to break and it was just his foot. So, sturdy. Says everything about that company.

It was a resin hand painted master model, wasn't a finished product.

Hold on dude, you were talking about the Bebop toy, weren't you?

I’m probably going to display it with the brown head on, but I may touch it up and add some pink highlighting on the snout....something much subtler than the “Pink” head.

I thought the pink head was completely pink. I must have been looking at the TF2020 pictures all wrong.

No. All we have is "2nd quarter 2020", and that was before the corona virus hit.

So far I have the Foot Soldier, Raph, Shredder and Leo on pre-order. I had Splinter as well, but decided to cancel that one. You guys are making me want to snag this Bebop as well. I personally love the original pink/brown head. It would have been cool if the brown head had minimal pink on it (like just the snout), but it's cool they are even offering an additional head. I almost wish I knew how Rocksteady was going to look. If I saw the pair together, I probably would be more inclined to jump the gun and just order both. I'm really trying to buy too many Super 7 figures and focus on NECA.

Predictions for next waves? Here's my guess:

Wave 3:

Donatello
Rocksteady
April
Muckman

Wave 4:

Michaelangelo
Ace Duck
Krang
Rat King

Wave 5:

Casey Jones
Leatherhead
Slash
Metalhead


What would be ideal, IMO (ranked):

  1. Ray Fillet
  2. Wingnut & Screwloose
  3. Scumbug
  4. Antrax
  5. Mondo Gecko
  6. Slash
  7. Leatherhead
  8. Metalhead
  9. Triceraton
  10. Sergeant Bananas
  11. Doctor El
  12. Chromedome
  13. Wyrm

With nice to haves:
  1. Half court
  2. Merdude
  3. Hothead
  4. Scaletail
  5. Pizza face
  6. Dirtbag
  7. Groundchuck
  8. Scratch
  9. Sandstorm
  10. Fugitoid

Hope this line continues far past the promised 5 drops so we can see all these guys made.

I would like to see:

Wave 3:
Donatello
April
Krang (Maybe Android body over walker?)
Slash

Wave 4:
Michealangelo
Casey Jones
Leatherhead
Rat King

Wave 5:
Metalhead
Genghis Frog
General Traag
Triceraton

There are a lot of awesome figures like Ace Duck, Muckman, Ray Fillet etc, but if we are only getting5 waves, these are the ones I would like.

that seems really realistic, and probable. i hope they do end up going further than just 5 waves, but we'll just have to vote with our dollars, i guess!

for krang, if the reaction line is anything to go off of, they'll probably go bubble walker. but who knows! mutagen man in wave 2 means anything is possible. haha.

they did mention that scale was important to them - so i'd imagine if they did go with android krang, he'd be absolutely gigantic. sign me up.
