I hope that turns out to be true. I can't wait to see two of my vintage favorites, Wingnut & Scumbug. I didn't order either due to the higher prices so the sooner these are out, the sooner I can hopefully grab them on discount.

Got the "confirm your address" email from Super7 yesterday for wave 9.

Also completely forgot that this was the wave that got mispriced and I only paid $218 for all five figures.

Yeah, I had it locked in at that price as well but ended up canceling. I realized that even though it's a steep discount it's still well more than I want to pay since I really don't need Splinter, Zak, or the Donny.

I'm just going to sell Splinter and Donnie. Hopefully it works out.

I just picked up Genghis on the cheap, and he scales really poorly with the rest of the line, but this has to be the best figure they've done overall. He stands on his own, the paint is good, he can actually hold his accessories, the sunglasses fit his head, etc. The only issue is that the little wakeboard clip doesn't actually work (there's no peg to plug into the holes), so it's always open, but I wasn't going to use that anyway, so I don't mind.

Scale in this line is all over the place, but his size doesn't bother me. (I mean, if we had stuck with Playmates file cards for height, Don would have been a full foot shorter than the other turtles)

As for the wakeboard, I remove a hand, put the wakeboard clip over the wrist, replace the hand. I know it's supposed to go around the ankle, but the wrist version seems easier.

I couldn't even get the the little hoop to shut. It looks like maybe there should have been a peg to slot into the holes, but mine doesn't have a peg at all - it's just a smooth surface.

To the scale, I'm not really going by anything other than what's in my head... but in the same way Ace felt tiny, Genghis feels enormous to me.

Collectors are getting shipping notifications for wave 9. I guess we will see a 2k3 turtle soon.

I'm really excited about Zak the Neutrino. He was my favorite TMNT figure when I was a kid. Hopefully, we get Dask and Kala!

Kinda excited about Wingnut too (I like the fact that Screwloose/Needlenose is quite large, almost like a bonus figure).

Yeah, I've seen a pic online with Genghis and Mondo. He towers over Mondo. Everything else about him is pretty on point.

In a December interview Brian stated we would see them this month.

I'm excited to see how Wingnut turned out, he's one of my favorite vintage figures. I reeeeeally hope that cape is removable. It would be such a Super7 thing to do to add something they think is cool for no reason and *ruin a childhood favorite.


*overly dramatic, I know

Do we think or has it ever been mentioned that they are going to make a Shoate? I don't collect this line but would definitely pick him up as he was my favorite.

Google ‘Super7 TMNT Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Ultimates! Fans’. There is a post from Ciarda Fitz with Mondo and Genghis in it.

Those pictures confused me (especially with the custom Rocksteady at the side?). I thought they were the playmates versions (can't really get a good sense of scale from them)

Pictures are crap. Wingnut looks great, but a bit too big, though Brian Flynn will claim 'genius' in the making of it.
