Maybe Raph ripped out his “MOM” tattoo and then put it back on, but upside down. You know, to prove how tough he is.

You know I still have my really ugly 2014 movie Raphael in its box along with that movie's Shredder too. I'll probably want to pick up this movie's Raphael if I see it in stores I bet given that I like this design way more.

Hard pass on these figures. The turtles are o.k-ish..... but the villains look straight up crappy as Hell. The proportions don't sit well with me and come off too goofy and I know that's the art style but in figure form they look like crap. If people want these great but for me it's also great in that I don't have to hunt these down like say with the Neca line.

'spensive!

[But I also thought they might be priced as high as $13]

Oh man, the pizza thrower looks really good. I'm probably going to get just the basic four turtles (villains don't look all that great design wise), maybe that pizza thrower too...I dunno. I really should curb this habit. It's getting out of control.

They really don't look that bad, as representations of the characters. The colors certainly pop.

Combining the Turtle van with the pizza thrower is an interesting idea.

I feel myself being tempted here.

Wonder when these will end up in stores. I can prob pass on the rest, but I do kinda want that Leo.
Playmates Instagram says they drop in June so just under 2 months before the movie release date.

I still like them but they do look a bit cheap in those official shots. Still, I like that $9.99 price tag enough to grab at least one to check it out.

Trailer looks great, too!

I almost thought that sounded way too late, but then again the Super Mario Bros movie figures just dropped in late February.

After a closer look, I think this might be the best Playmates figures since the 2003 show. I love the 2012 figures but the unpainted weapons were disappointing, this new set of toys have the best of both worlds, the paint details of the 2003 series and the articulation of the 2012 figures.


Here's more photos:

If so, I'm quite surprised!

Dont get your hopes up on that. Looks like they are attached like Baxter Stockman's from NECA

The figure in the party wagon doesn’t have them on at all.

But upon closer inspection, that MIGHT be Leo…

I think it's their best figure lineup since the 2012 series launch. So, that's pretty good.

While we see Playmates once again recycling most of the same ideas they keep using time and time again anytime they launch a new turtle line... it seems to be working for them so what can ya do.

At least these are NEW figures, with new tooling and a different look... i'm so sick of seeing them re-releasing old figures (often with worse paint and accessories than the originals YUCK) that I'm pretty happy with what I see here.

The giant turtles look AMAZING this time around. I don't usually buy the giant ones... but it's tempting.
