I would think that Tempestra is at least announced at some point this year.

I do plan on displaying all of them together in my collection.

Regardless of what anyone thinks about Temprestra and her backstory, she does have a very cool character design, one that would translate exceedingly well into toy form. She almost looks like a Voltron or Castlevania character.

Cool. Here's hoping for a reporter and some bugs soon.

Just received my channel 6 and TID sets from NECA. The TID set doesn't have the shiny plastic paint job they had when originally released. Looks so much better.

I'm game for an assist. I need the Channel Six set and Slash and Leatherhead. I have been to my only local Target store 3 times this week with no luck. Only the one Casey Jones mask replica.

Scroll down for a picture of TID Mikey with a matte head: http://thefwoosh.com/forum/viewtopic...835&start=7710

The TID set with matte heads are hitting Targets now.

I don’t understand how such an experienced company doesn’t realize on the first go around that matte paint and seamless knee-joints look better.

I think they do know and put out an inferior product on purpose because they know their fan base consists of a lot of obsessive and compulsive people who will double-dip.

Initially i thought it was done on purpose to differentiate it from wave1 turtles. Didn't know it was a mistake. They made shiny toys 1 time and already you're complaining? You should look at how many Super7 toys are shiny.

No. Like I said, the shiny paint jobs, the awful looking joints, the weird cracks in the turtles in disguise heads, that are certain to disappear down the line.

I wouldn't make an accusation like that based on one incident, which is why I gave more than one example in my post. The fact is, a company like Neca knows better than to make mistakes like this.

It's not about Super7, right? I'm talking about Neca.

When I was younger, I used to love figures with some sheen (the wacky action turtles had them), for the same reason I liked GITD, Vac Metal/Chrome, color change. Nowadays, not so much. The matte finish looks more sophisticated. Having said this, when you have 40+ figures sitting around on that diorama, it's hardly noticeable.
