Casey is looking amazing, but then again, I don't think I can support a line that costs as much as Mafex (or roughly $100+ a figure), while supporting NECA and S7. I almost probably shouldn't have picked up Fury Toys Leo as my OCDish will make me want to complete the set.

I may be the only one that thinks their Casey is just ... okay, haha. I will say it likes a better version of that Dreamex figure from a couple of years ago.

Dreamex is exactly what came to mind when I first saw the picture.

I'm not a fan of the denim vest but it's removable and it'll surely come with plenty of accesories, remember this will be a $100 figure. I hope we get a maskless casey, plenty of weapons and a few shirt options, perhaps a mouser or something else. Hopefully something cool and not wasted.

For the turtles themselves even though they have 3 heads many are very similar, they could've done a bit better there. Raph literally has 3 angry faces, I mean I know he's the angry one but come on, not even a serious face. Mikey gets the best range. The stands are kind of obnoxious too, wish that instead of being the color of the turtles and the logo they would've gone with the standard manhole covers or I guess street pieces like the original NECA mirage turtles. A for the soft goods, I guess they couldn't think what to give Donnie so they just gave him a hood like Leo but they could've done a lab coat or a sweater with a beanie like in the old toon. Hell if they were going to repeat outfits they could've just done the trenchcoat again. Also curious to what weapons they have, if it's only the ones shown in the pictures I think they missed a few opportunities. The fact that the grappling hook seen in the turtle shots is not included in the picture of the other items gives me hope there's more items.

Im still mad they are only including 3 heads for Raph-there should be 4 so we can make red team.

They are doing this with Indiana Jones as well - they recently announced a "Toht" figure with a light-up Ark, which is awesome.

Companies like this don't often flesh out a their licensed I.P.s very far, but honestly I hope they keep doing it...... I mean Marvel and DC get a lot of figures, but to have movie licenses and do more with them beyond "the" character is awesome. Big bets on that they do a Shredder.

Shame those Mirage ones look so babyish. I love all things Mirage (not IDW) but this is an easy pass. You could at least have given them rattles or bottles, Mezco.

Agreed...I'd love to see a Shredder to go with the 6 inch Turtles.

I hope they aren't confusing the $400 box set with the cheaper, smaller turtle set they have which is $64.99

Everyone make sure you get the right set for your needs!

*edit*

As I write this I realize they are back for pre-order on EE. This has been going in and out of stock, possibly due to cancellations bringing more allocation.

https://www.entertainmentearth.com/p...ed-set/mz75514

Just one more month of waiting! Unless they get delayed, we'll see.

I have zero faith that we will see the One:12 set release this year as Mezco is extremely late with every licensed One:12 offering….their fantastic four set is two years late I believe and still not out as just one example.

According to entertainment earth, the release date has moved from December 2023 to Aug 2024.
I still have next to no faith that the Aug date will be met.

This is normal for Mezco-for those on the first time Mezco train this will be a long wait. As someone mentioned earlier just look at the FF4 set- ordered this one late to go with Haslab Galactus and its already a 2 year wait. This is why BBTS does deposits now. After 2 years people cancel.

in a way it's a bummer, but also a relief due to how expensive it is
