I have one set on order with the rest of the wave through super7 and one more mouser pack ordered through BBTS. I think I’ll be good with these 10 plus the one from Baxter and one glowing one….unless they do make an glowing army builder set at some point too.
I might have gone for more, but as someone else pointed out, repeating the same battle damage looks weird, and more so en mass.

Are the sais included with the mousers different from the ones included with Raph?

Speculation is that they're replacements for the bendy rubber ones that initially came with Raph. They were pretty universally warped out of the package.

Knowing Super7 and the inconsistencies they've had so far, I'm prepared for the sais to not fit in Raph's hands and for Surfer Mikey's heads to not match the OG figure.

Bryan alluded to it in the Fwoosh interview, though he didn't get into specifics.
Mine came pretty mangled (which hot water didn't really fix) because of how they were packed. Hoping these will look better.

great question! as of the interview with brian from a week ago, they’re “on the water”, but not sure how much longer that means until they’re in hand.

they said these would be out a while ago.

Yeah, I'd say end of November/early December would be best time frame for wave 4 if they're on the water now, but there's really no telling with current port delays.

Finally got wave 3. Two stuck joints (one on one of my Mikeys, one on Metalhead) that won't budge with a hair dryer. Going to try hair dryer/cold water dunk combo at the weekend and see if that helps but luckily they're still posable so not the end of the world. Still majorly frustrating to have these issues on a line this expensive.

Apart from that issue though I absolutely love them. April looks far better in person, fair enough she's not a home run but she's good enough for me. Mikey is great just like the previous turtles. Metalhead is cool. I was originally going to skip him but added him last minute and glad I did. Rocksteady is an absolute beast and easy standout of the wave. The sheer scale of him and Bebop really make the Super 7 figures stand out next to other versions.

Three waves in and it feels like the line is really starting to come together. Once Don, Casey and Krang are here it will really feel complete (though I hope it keeps going and going).

This just crossed my mind and i don't believe

but i'll totally buy a Genghis Frog remake.

Crazy he hasn't been made after 6 waves.

Can any say why there are different versions of the super 7 ultimates turtles?

When you look here https://www.bigbadtoystore.com/Searc...imates+Raphael you'll find there are 2 Raphs. Both wave 1 but one already released and sold out, the other one not yet released but up for pre-order.

What is the difference between those 2 versions/variants?

IINM variant is the second batch that was made with a slightly different colored weapons rack. They made it different so people with the original wave1 raph won't cry about it i guess.

Aha, interesting. I got a wave1 Raph on its way to me - how would I know if it is the non-variant or variant?

The unpainted weapon rack of the variant has a darker color than both of the ones that came with the wave 1 Raph and the original basic Raphael from Playmates.

I believe it’s just an assumption since Genghis was in the 89 line.

Honestly, it’s a very reasonable guess. Even though NECA just did the frogs anything S7 shows now is at least a year from release. Speaking personally, with NECA’s frogs still on the shelves, I’d be more inclined to put him in wave 8 than wave 7 if I was S7, or shake things up and go with Napoleon first as he had a unique look for his figure. Scratch showed they’re definitely willing to jump to later figures to get some of those unique vintage characters out.

Speaking of wave 7, I really hope they finally get to the first “not done in vintage style” figure in the next wave.

Or really shake things up and introduce Rasputin or Attila first with unique designs that draw from different toad and frog species (or consultation with Varner to see if they have something in their database).

I've been going on an unboxing spree with Thundercats (the last wave of TC is perfect!) and NECA and Super7 TMNT. I was just wondering why the S7 TMNT figures don't have holes in their feet and whether that's the case with all of them (I preordered a ton but only have GIT Baxter, April, Rocksteady and Metalhead)?
