Really? I feel like they evoke Michael Dooney's newer art, myself.

Maybe, if I squint. Mikey just looks too crazy!

Yeah, i was thinking that too....
I never got all 4 basic turtles as a kid,
maybe i should only buy what i owned as a kid?
Which means not getting all 4 turtles.

If the alt heads were basically old school Mirage style, these figures would double as the box art turtles. That would definitely be a cooler selling point IMO.

Personally, I'd say get the whole Super7 ultimate collection!! I've recently gotten back into collecting, and the S7 figures are FAR easier to acquire than NECA!! AS of now, there is one expensive figure: GITD Baxter, and if you're wise, can still be had for around $100 (I paid exactly $100 including shipping last month).

The level of detail is amazing, and the sizes of Bebop and Mutagen Man is incredible compared to the Turtles - they're massive!

Again, personal opinion, but I have more passion for these figures than I do NECA, though I'm still trying to collect those lines as well.

I've been looking at my figures and really wish S7 has made the alternate heads red bandanas!! And given Mike a completely different sculpt; his is the only one I wonder wtf they were thinking with that expression!!

If that's now bailing a Sergeant Bananas release, I don't know what is.

That interview states Usagi is off the table, for now, due to merch rights changing with the new Netflix show.

Then I guess Brian was hinting at Sgt. Bananas. We’ll know in October, November, or December.

My guess is either a rare figure like scratch or a character never done by playmates but in the plamates style ultimized.

Also in the interview, Brian says they are working on color change paint for Ray.
He doesn’t exactly make it clear if that is for the regular figure or a future exclusive variant .

Flynn says "bananas" a lot, honestly - just as a general term. I'm personally hoping it isn't Sgt. Bananas, though I could absolutely see them using him as a 'big' figure for the wave.

He said we'll go bananas for it or we won't....sounds like it a whole "new" character that has never been made. He did mention that wave 6 would start that.

Fair enough on the clarification of terminology.
I used “working” opposed to “there will be” or “he’s going to have” because in my mind “working on” can easily lead to “ultimately didn’t work out” . I guess I find “working on” synonymous with “trying to make” , but I’m all for making things as clear as possible.

I wonder if this means that they can't use Playmate's prototypes of released figures either.
As much as I love this line, the one thing that has bugged me is how they seemed to be avoiding using the original (fully painted) Playmates prototypes or even the box/package artwork (also based on the fully painted prototypes) when deciding on the color/paint of the unpainted sculpted details from the original figures.
For example, if you look at the original Playmates package art/photos for Mutagen Man, he was supposed to have fully painted skull and organs:


Also Mondo Gecko was originally supposed to have a fully painted engine on his skateboard (figure proto and card art).

These extra painted details were more than likely scrapped by Playmates to cut cost.
One of my hopes with this currently line from Super7 was that we would finally get to see these original Playmates figures shown/release as they were originally intended (paintwise).

I remember as a child when I would get a Playmates TMNT figure and get disappointed when I would compare the figure with the box art and photos on the back and see how much painted detail was omitted from the final figure. In some cases I would actually try to paint the details myself (rather poorly I might add).
