I was also under the impression that there would be Pizza Club B&R as well as Shredder.

I've seen most of these a couple times in-store, and I've passed on all of them primarily because of the new paint apps. Bebop and Rocksteady just look really awful, and the Turtles are incompatible with everything I already have, so I guess I'm relieved in that regard, as I probably would have spent an astronomical amount of money just for a handful of parts.

I did pick up the Casey pack, though. Even though the head is technically not accurate to the cartoon at all, I'd still intended to use it on the original figure. I should have checked this ahead of time, of course, because the skin tones don't match at all (which, ironically, wouldn't have been an issue if the new head was toon accurate), so lesson learned there.

Looks like the new B&R doesn't have the cel-shading technique:

I'm really glad I held out on B&R for so long. Much prefer the updated set, may have to finally bite the bullet.

No. Original set has the better colors. I’m keeping them posed in one position and they have yet to fall over.

Agree about the colors. The review I watched had a guy calling the new ones "more vibrant"..."more cartoony"..."more yellow". They look dull in a washed out way to me.
