That's what Super7 does! It's just more REPAINTS of previous figures in different packaging. It's hard to get excited anymore with their REACTION stuff. They have already abandoned the Vintage style reaction line. Where is Muckman? Ace Duck? etc. They don't make what fans want. It's cash grab ****!

Super7 did not even stick the 40th Anniversary label on there.

Wow, they didn't even bother to at LEAST give the same body sculpt to make it seem like the early Mirage comics. Just another half-ass recoloring. They're getting ripped apart on their social for these and deservedly so.

Even as a 3.75" collector I've completely dropped out of ReAction because I'm not finna pay $20 for a 5 PoA figure that looks like it's got rigor mortis. But these are just... BORING-looking! They don't look like they're even trying to match the comic tones. They just set the damn things to grayscale in photoshop essentially and called it a day!

Meanwhile, Mezco has a box set of Mirage Turtles coming out in this scale and only 5 PoA still, but they actually look mostly like the comic Turtles, they have multiple accessories and interchangeable limbs, AND it costs like $15 less than all four ReAction Turtles would.

Not to mention, toon Bebop, toon Krang, toon April, and toon Splinter. Super7 did not even finish that line of repaints.

Does that mean there's going to be GITD Ray Fillet for the Ultimates line?

I mean technically, Super7 has the ability to make a color-change Ray Fillet (e.g. Hook Mountain Ice Lion-O).

Also, going by the ReAction line, there should also be a Napoleon and Chrome Dome for the Ultimates line too.
