Yeah... I don't need that. But kind cool for those who dig the movie and the toon.

Not sure why they would make a jumpsuit April since that was never in the movie, I guess some may want it, but definitely not for me. All the made up stuff like the Universal Monsters Movie Turtles, are an easy pass for me. I’d rather save that money for a Paige Turco April, or Tatsu figure, hopefully they make those soon.

I think she is intended to look like the arcade cabinet art. I might be in for this one. No doubt her leg articulation will be better without the skirt. But I want to see the actual thing first.

I'm more interested in the Pizza Face arcade game cabinet she was supposed to come with than her.

Oh, yeah, I really want that set for the accessories! Plus, I'm a sucker for Aprils.

Now THAT would be amazing. The figure shown looks nothing like it, but if NECA actually did make the 6 figures based on the iconic 1989 Arcade Marquee, I’d be all in. Of course that means they’d have to track down the models for April and Shredder to get likeness rights. That would be so cool though, to have a diorama of that street scene and re-create the 1989 Arcade cabinet art, with new Turtle figures that look accurate to the marquee, plus April and Shredder.

It feels too "Ripley from Aliens" to me, which might have been intentional by NECA.

Tatsu might be on his way if this video is to be believed. Tatsu talk starts at about 3:38.

I honestly never thought it would happen. I'd definitely be keen though.

The photos are huge, but it looks like Tatsu has finally leaked.

Spoiler:

So it looks like both Tatsu and Paige Turco April are incoming! Nice way to close out the line.

Where do you see Turco? Tatsu leaked weeks back with a shipping manifest. He is coming!

"Close out the line"? I wouldn't go that far.

This is a fair question to ask. I was gonna ask it myself, but just assumed it was something I missed. Where is the news/leak/whatever about the Paige Turco April? I would prefer to keep my expectations in check.

So the guy that runs the Party Wagon NECA TMNT Facebook group has been pretty heavily involved with Turco when it comes to some Con stuff and he dropped the news he was able to work with NECA in getting her a figure. Take with a grain of salt, but that guy seems to be pretty trustworthy.

Outside of being the lead guy for one of the most notable FB groups, I don't know how he got involved with being able to potentially make that happen. I know he's also helped Judith Hoag with some Con stuff as well.

Time will tell, but unlike Turco ... now it seems there's real movement for Tatsu as there's even a Wal-Mart page listing for him now.

Tatsu finishes the 1st film and Turco finishes the 2nd film.
