Super7's Glow in the Dark Turtles are shipping out.
Keno headsculpts turnaround.
As stated, the first two TMNT Nendos are up for order on all e-tailers. $50 a pop.
Jumbo Mikey has already been found at a Walmart. It's going to vary HEAVILY on your area if you see this thing or not.
>>10232452Looks like the Jumbos and the Battle Shells AREN'T Target exclusive? Which, if that's the case, makes Walmart getting only Mikey as an exclusive to them even more fucking ridiculous.
And speaking of the Storage/Battle Shell Turtles...Playmates done a Playmates. Turns out there's wrong stickers, missing accessories, and reused limbs. For instance, Mikey is has Donnie's arms, and Raph's legs.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MOpJxyVQreQ&t=1263sMore weird bullshit.
>>10232462Playmates is like a retarded hillbilly that sits on a gold deposit and doesn't know what to do with it.
All these brands and products feels like TMNTmania again. All that's left is a musical or something
>>10232632They already did the coming outta shell Turts. Some of my favorite pieces.
Guy's, Tatsu's finally getting made.
>>10232717While I'd like that to be true, I don't trust some random asshole on Facebook. Especially one that got mad that people called him out as a liar and posted a bit "trust me!" post.
>>10232439So damn excited. The colors on these rule
>>10232452>>10232457can't even find these at target let alone wilmrat..
>>10232717>>10232950Yeah I'm gonna need a more reliable source for this
>>10232457walmart needs to be forbidden from having exclusives until they start stocking their fucking online store
>>10232632i love that even this wonky attempt at adapting the movie suits is still so much better than what we actually got that you could easily call this false advertising.>>10232717praise yahweh-sama. please let it be true.and if it's not, then maybe the news will reach him and he'll be like "What? no i didn't." and then hopefully he has the wherewithall to understand about internet liars, but also gets the seed in his mind "hey i should do that" since apparently neca hasn't even been able to hear from him.
So Krang with his giant body is being made in Bst AXN at 8 inches. Really tempted to drop the playmates reissues and buy these instead, just wish that the turtles themselves looked more like the playmates heads instead of the cartoon. Sick of the stores here, Australia, just having the four turtles and the movie box.
My Super7 Leo has loose-ass legs. Is this normal? Any fixes? He can't hold up his body weight if his legs are spread
>>10233156>normal?i'm afraid so. it's not every single figure in the line, but it's most of them>any fixes?for the hips, yes. floor polish (if you don't have, you can just buy the important ingredient, which is water-based polyurethane varnish. it's not expensive and a little will last forever) for the inner pelvic piece which wobbles freely, not really. not unless you can figure out how to pump floor polish up under his shell, above the rim of the pelvic piece, and let it drip down into that piece's interior. I feel like if I just had an S-shaped tube of some kind, it might be possible to kinda 'periscope' it in. but you'd be working totally blind.
>>10232434Vintage-anon here. Went to a local collectibles store and found a bunch of figures. Could only afford to get some guys, but I'll definitely go back soon to get some more. Here's my recent haul. I didn't notice until after I had already bought him, but Raphael's a soft-head. I was already happy to find some figures with their accessories, but that was a fun surprise.Out of curiosity, does anyone know if the 25th Anniversary figures' weapons are the same as recent rereleases where they used different color plastic? I wonder if there's a way to tell if you've actually got the original weapons with the vintage figures or if you got a later releases'.
>>10233926oh wow, the softheads. first edition.
>>10233926The newer re-release weapons are pretty flimsy and almost translucent. I couldn't say for sure if there's a way to tell definitively though.
>>10233926i forgot all about the rat-ppling hook. I cannot wait for super7 to do this guy. bald spots and all. and if they leave off the centipede, I've got a spare one for him to have.
Are the BST AXN toys any good? I kinda like the look of their Shredder.
>>10234276It is the second best current tmnt toy line behind s7
>>10234285Thanks. I only collect Masters of the Universe and cheap vintage TMNT for my kidsBut that Shredder looks good and especially at that price.
I haven't been invested in TMNT for a long time, is there any nostalgia for the 2003 series in the fandom? All I see in merch is early 90s and the moviesI grew up with the classics, bought everything of 2003 series when I started my job, then my parents sold it all at a yard sale for probably pennies while I was away, all I have left is part of a spaceship and the wind up Shedder w/out the helmet
>>10234285This is a total lie.>>10234296Don't. The BST line is one of the worst TMNT lines out there. They break very easily, they fall apart even easier than that. They are overpriced garbage. Loyal Subjects may be pumping them out, but they are God damn awful. Everyone that has bought them realizes the mistake they've made. Do not be fooled by the troll here >>10234285
>>10234683>is there any nostalgia for the 2003 series in the fandom?There is huge nostalgia in fandom but Nickolodeon afraid to use or promote 2003 for some retarded reasons. Probably because they want to push le wacky cartoon kids friendly TMNT image.
>>10234703Probably more to do with 2003 being poison. They want sales. Nobody wants to touch 2003, and rightfully so.
Neca breaks easily, often in the package. BST AXN IS overpriced but never had one break on me. Its biggest problem is a shit character assortment. Did anyone ask for the street clothes turtles? They have big gold Krang out but the regular one is months off? No April or Splinter?Rocksteady & Bebop having human alt parts is interesting, though Rocksteady is off-model "not muh cartoon" to make it work.And none of those ugly black lines Neca does, that only Neca buttkissers think looks good. It's a 3D model, it doesn't need that shit. I got their Krang android to fit in with Super7, if Loyal Subjects veer gets their Krangs out I'll replace them just for lacking that stupid shit. It's weird though their 2 Krangs will be Neca size for a line that's overall much smaller scale.
>>10234714>Neca breaks easily, often in the packageLiterally none of that is true. The way you're twisting yourself into a pretzel to defend BST is quite depressing though. You must not know what a good action figure is, and that's truly sad.And the black lines sell the animated look. It does need that, and it looks incredible. Keep sucking cock I guess. BST sucks.
>>10234710>poisonHow's so?If I remember right 2003 toys and merch sells a way better than 2012 or movie toys.
>>10234276They are quite literally bottom of the barrel trash. Anyone telling you that they're good? They're trolling you. 100%. How they're still going is a mystery, but I have to assume it's because of how poorly made the figures are, they aren't spending much money.
>>10234742>f I remember right 2003 toys and merch sells a way better than 2012 or movie toys.That sure is a fun thing you just made up.
>>10234933I wanna suck that rat dick, no lie.
Diamond TMNT minimates going up for pre-order tomorrow. $40.
>>10234683it's not so much 'nostalgia' as 'we objectively believe this to be the closest correct adaptation of the turtles aside from the original movie (even if it has some 4kids silliness in it)'we don't have the kind of nostalgia where you're like "pff veronica taylor is the only april o'neil" or like "splinter should be gray, come on guys!"
>>10234683>parents not respecting your property and violating your rights the moment you get a job of your ownclassic bullshit. They're gonna find the shoe fits a little differently on the other foot when they need to be cared for in their old age.>>10234703typically these companies resent anything they didn't make, or that is seen as superior to what they did.
>>10235136>go to the trouble of sculpting a unique pig head>turtles and humans just get a cylinder
>>10232449Gonna pass on these. Chibi look doesn't really suit the Turtles. Anyone that excited for these? Im not sure what is really throwing me off of these they just look kind of off.
>>10235620desu I like turtle chibis, I think it suits them. here's the problems:>knee pads broken up>proportions TOO chibi. typically the four chibi limbs should add up to at least the volume of the torso. yes the turtles could be stumpy-proportioned sometimes, but not like this>massively oversized heads. again, should be the size of the torso if not smaller. Nendos can pull off bigger heads, but it helps that anime characters tend to have a whole lot of cranium and only a little face down at the bottom of the head. These gigantic oversized mascot heads do not work at all. and speaking of>all the same faceand it's that party-napkin turtle face. Way too vacuous for something like this. . decent if they're doing little 'yay!' poses, but not for brandishing weapons. The turtles looked way cooler in the old cartoon, especially the original 5-parter. and it's japanese artists who made them look that cool, so you'd think they would mimic THAT more.
>>10235620I think they look like really fun toys, but I've got so many TMNT things now...these aren't grabbing my attention enough. If I could get them on clearance or something? Maybe.
>>10234927>>10234928>>10234930>>10234933blue GITD version will be awsome
>>10234276I have a Street Style Raphael and his knees became loose after bending them one time. Overall the quality feels very cheap.
>>10232439I love the boxes on these. The storage shell belts is a nice touch too.>>10233156Common with the basic buck on the Turtle bodies. Mine aren't loose, but I have had loose Raph legs.
>>10236104And once again CC lies. It's common on all the Super7 figures.
>>10233926>>10233946I still have my softhead Leo. First TMNT figure I ever had.
>>10236963how has the plastic held up?
>>10235641you nailed it. I couldnt figure out why exactly I didnt like them but yeah that sums it up. I might still get these if they shelfwarm and hit discounts but I got so much other Turtle stuff I dont mind letting these slide.
>>10237045also according to the OP, there ARE other faces. but... kinda similar problems, the eyes are just so vapidly bland. actually, is it a top-and-bottom-of-head-separate-pieces thing?
>>10236992you know what my OG TMNT is good but the 85 turtles from neca are sticky and their weapons are stuck to their hands
>>10237104you mean the long-necked neca mirage turtles?
>>10232452Picked one up this morning. Seems he would be the more hard to find so I started with him. Not sure if I'm going to grab the rest at retail price though.
i just bought a boatload of classic 6" and I swear this head was sculpted by stonetoss
>>10237104You probably have the bootlegs then. My mirage figures are fine.
>>10237106yes, my bad >>10237373no, I got it from hot topic.
>>10237423I don't believe you
>>10237373You’re lying and are a liar. I bought my giraffe neck prime turtles back on release and kept them in package and they’ve become sticky with what necallectors KNOW is commonplace: cheap nondurable plastics lead to ooey gooey plasticizer leaking out of the pores of randy’s gifts. It is inevitable.
>>10237437You're trolling with this same bullshit, again. You couldn't even add anything realistic to your post... You are so bad at this. Nothing you said is true.
>>10237423>my badi mean they are 'the '85 turtles' so your only crime was briefly confusing me.
>>10235620I actually am, and don`t currently even own any tmnt. I just think the look fits them REALLY well.i hope this Nendo line continues beyond just the turtles.
Went back to that shop and picked up some more guys. These'll be my last pickups for now. They had more stuff, but I got all that I was interested in. Humorously enough, this Donatello that was next to the Raph I got before was actually a soft-head too! I checked everyone else, but he was the only softy they had. I think they both might've had the same original owner, as they both have the same weird stain spots on their bodies. I gotta say, I really love guys like Mondo and Baxter with all the extra sculpted detail on 'em. They look sick as fuck.>>10233946>>10236963Pretty rad!>>10234166Yeah, I figured as much.>>10234244It's such a goofy accessory, but ya gotta love they stuff they threw in back then.
>>10238103Make My Day Leo was one of my favourite toys growing up. The turtles and real-ass guns just worked.
Guess which one is the reissue.
>>10238962huh, neither of them looks right to me. not based on the pictures i'm pulling up from tmnttoysrecent classics dons have had their red turned up too high. the one on the left looks.. about right to me, and the right looks dark and desaturated. as if someone overcompensated and removed most of the red
>>10237351Based Stone Turtles
>>10239094>StoneSuper7, get on this right now!
>>10238962I want to say the left because the purple is brighter, but in my mind 90s toys don't have matte finishes on the paint, so I'll say the right
>>10238962Gonna say right. Left looks like what I remember. The purple on the right (especially the belt) are too dark and desaturated. Same for the skintone. Gums don't seem to be the right screaming neon pink either.
>>10239504i still can't believe this was a thing
>>10239504Nah S7 has too many licenses going and they cant focus their quality on any of them, I want Mattel to get them and add it to there MOTU Origins line like they did with those Sun Man characters.
>>10239748The late 80's and early 90's were a wild time for toys. I wouldn't believe half the shit that came out of that time if I hadn't witnessed it first-hand.In retrospect the idea of trolls that tried to appeal to the TMNT demographic makes sense from a moneymaking standpoint. Trolls were big, turtles were big, why not find a way to combine their appeal? What could possibly go wrong?
>>10239748>>10239789The weirdest part was that it actually worked. I remember being really excited for Stone Protectors, both the toys and the cartoon. In retrospect they're really goofy (and the ones with bared teeth are kind of frightening), but this made perfect sense in like 1995.
>>10239789>>10239820How successful were these anyway?
>>10239820roffle you must be a little younger than me. I found it the cringiest thing to date.>>10239789the problem is they didn't understand the synergy very well. firstly, only girls like trolls, secondly, the hatedom for trolls is significantly larger than the fandom. they're up there with cabbage patch kids for "why did someone deliberately make this disgusting face instead of a cute one?"even the stone protectors are horrified by being turned into this shiton the other hand, they had sense enough to move the gummy gems up to the chest, the correct power-gem location for a cool superhero.you can really tell they had no ideas beyond 'we will sell toys' because their fucking theme song is just the description of their gimmick
>>10239832Apparently not hugely, neither the toy line nor the cartoon lasted long. I think people only remember it because of what a strange concept it was.
>>10239504I miss the neon era of toys so much
>>10239832One season and the toys hit the 3/$5 bins at KayBee Toys. It's how my brothers and I got all 5. We still watched the cartoon and enjoyed it but we enjoyed most action cartoons at the time. Like Biker Mice from Mars which Im hoping gets good playable figures and not just retro shit when it gets rebooted. My dream would be EXO Squad to be the next big retro revival. But playmates is ass now and their reissues would have less paint apps then the originals did already. If Jazzwares picks up the license it might fare better. They have those mini articulated Fortnite figures.
>>10238962right, you can tell by the desaturated belly chest.
>>10239847These were so fun, too bad the parts were so easy to loose. A few years ago I was going through stuff in the attic and I found the fat dummy with the bug-out eyes and ears, but it was just his torso and head. I don't even remember how or where I lost his limbs, or why I bothered to keep just the torso.
>>10239847I thought the "enemy" figures being robots cobbled together from car parts was a neat idea
>>10239849biker mice was excellent.. but the sequel was bad, I can't possibly think a reboot will be any good. It relies on too many things that people either can't or aren't allowed to have anymore.
>>10239850the word you're looking for is 'plastron' my good chum>>10239858whoa, i was not aware of this. i always found the crash test dummies pretty lame, but these guys I would have been interested in.
It's over bros. Movie is going to be as bad as Rise. At this point they might as well remove Ninja from the title. Splinter is going to be some homeless bum that watch some Steven Seigal movies.
>>10239994Well yeah, we all figured. Nothing about it looks good.
>>10240013a few parts of it look just okay.what made me sure it was garbage is donny having glasses. yknow as in those things you can't wear while fighting.
>>10240055That's nonsense logic and an idiotic reason to automatically dislike something. Plenty of fictional action heroes and fighters wear glasses. If you're going to be that pedantic you might as well argue that turtles cannot speak english or walk bipedally.
>>10240168>Plenty of fictional action heroes and fighters wear glassesname one who wears them into combat
>>10240172Blade Bayonetta Johnny F.A.N.G. Carrie Kelly Wesker Cyclops Maes Hughes Hange Zoe Anderson uhhhhh there's plenty more chief, you want me to keep going?
>>10240213cyclops doesn't go into battle with his glasses on. and his glasses are made of ruby quartz, so he'd theoretically be okay even if he didi don't know most of those, but i know I hate bayonetta and especially her glasses. but her whole thing is that heavily stylized nu-anime thing anyway where nobody would be able to lay a finger on her, it's not like she gets punched in the face. this is ninja turtles. they're supposed to live in the real new york, fighting real humans and getting fists and shuriken thrown at them.
I think we're just getting figures of the new Turtle Ranger renditions not the Mutant Rangers
>>10240329Yeah, I'd be very surprised if they made any of the mutant rangers. With the turtles they can make one body and reuse it four times, looks like this time they don't even need unique helmets. With the rangers they'd have to make brand new individual sculpts for pretty much all of them.
>>10240329huh, new turtle ranger designs. are these based off of anything or is it a unique power they get in the crossover comic thing.. the energy weapons are kinda cool. looks like casey got himself some too somehow and an outfit that.. is also maybe half a ranger outfit?. also the turtles look too humanoid again.. and what would the premise even be for rangers mutating into ranger-suit-colored dinosaur-headed human-bodied guys?
>>10240344Unique power made for thisI guess they just got tired of the complaints thrown out about the MMPR colors not matching the Turtles
>>10240329I hate Power Rangers so much, sentai in general, for one because it's always recolors recolors recolors recolors. It'll be sad when they make everyone in this picture, but also a monkey's paw when they do.
hope you ordered one of those neca turtle vans, only 2 weeks last year to make an order so not many units and was a max of 2 orders.gunna be fucked buying this thing on ebay, very few listings and once the 2 cheap ones are gone its going to be $2k USD
>>10240222Cyclops has done battle wearing casual shades made of ruby quartz (ie, not his iconic monovisor) plenty of times. And that's just talking the comics, he also did it in the movies, and if memory serves, even the 90s cartoon.Whether or not you know all of these is irrelevant anyway. The point is, there are plenty of characters who fight with glasses on. Your assertion was incorrect, and it is still a dumb hangup to have when you already have 100 completely unbelievable fantasy elements going on already.
>>10240373then those characters are wrongpeople who say "fantasy elements mean X doesn't have to make sense" are the worst kind of fans.
>>10240338You under estimate the sellabilty of anything MMPR. They're already remaking the team as deluxe and it's going to sell out. The original figures are the only ones that get higher prices in aftermarket.
There's blood in the water my friends. The hunt starts anew.
>>10240565they really went overboard, every figure didn't need a figure, esp all the one off chars, i don't remember any of them aside leatherhead. its all about the OG 4 turtles and OG bad guys
>>10240597Shelf rot alert you will literally have no trouble finding these without and inch of dust caked on top of the box
>>10240673Found the loser that knows nothing about TMNT
>>10240672I think it's fine, I imagine stores will stock a handful of these for the people who wanted EVERY character and they'll finally be satisfied that their favourite 1-off toon only guy finally got a toy.
>>10240329Would fuck Kimberly and Tommy.
Just sitting here waiting to preorder Mona Lisa...
>>10239994fat, bitchy, lesbian, likely blackwhy do these assholes keep changing tmnt into the most formulaically predictable (and universally detestable) 2022 progressive trash?
Mirage Battle Damaged Shredder -WAS- in stock on Walmart.com.They have a ton of TMNT in stock though, including SoTo Shredder.
>>10240839>why do these assholes keep changing tmnt into the most formulaically predictable (and universally detestable) 2022 progressive trash?Because taking real creative risks means it could lose money, and this is an era of pop culture where EVERYTHING must be as safe and generic as possible to maximize predictable safe profit. TMNT isn't art, and it's barely entertainment. It's now a brand and it's sole purpose is to generate money.
>>10240855not even the right colour
>>10240906It is the right color.
>>10240853>Mirage Battle Damaged Shredder -WAS- in stock on Walmart.com.link, please?
>>10240922thank you, im gonna check on it everyday
>>10240673On one hand its a one shot character which most people don't even know who it is without googling it then you got animated 80s version Karai. My guess is it will sell out initally when fans buy up their copy and later restocks will shelfwarm just like Splinter and Ratking 2packs. Also epect a lot of ebay listings of just Chikahachi.
>>10240839what do you mean 'likely' black. are you racist or something? she's clearly drawn blackand what does black have to do with 'progressive' ? you ever met any black people? they don't put up with this shit. they paddle their kids and pray to jesus.
>>10240854you maximize safe profit by appealing to the majority, who despise this stuff.>>10240906he turned blue from being hit a lot, don't you play videogames?
>>10240672Even though I hate neca, I really admire their willingness to make the most wtf characters in unprecedented detail, I wish i was a rich man and could track all of them down, a complete display of these figures has to look insane
>>10240329>that pink rangerAm I a furry now?
>>10241000they usually call you a scalie butfurries with taste don't enjoy "the head is 100% the animal's head, and the body is 90% human body"kim and tommy are probably the best looking here in those terms. trini and/or aisha has/have the really unfortunate amateur furry artist tinyshins problem showing they don't really understand how legs work
>>10241037Sounds like you're the one that doesn't understand how legs work.
>>10241037Scalie sounds cooler anyway.
I wonder if a figure of 5th turtle April is too deep of a cut.
>>10241070anything with an ie ending is inherently not cool, but it does help clarify that it's a noun>>10241042mkay. imagine her sitting down.
>>10241271now that you mention itwith the internet collectively being fed up with this shit, I wonder if we might get an Ugly Sonic here and have some shit fixed last minute
>>10239994Are they in high school? Did they make April a teacher?
>>10241532The rumor was they are humans that get turned into turtles...so, yeah, that would track wouldn't it? April being their "favorite teacher" that they can trust to go to when they get turned into mutant freaks. Oy...Also Nendo Krang is up for order. $50. Doesn't seem as nice as the Turtles.
>>10241535that doesn't work.. it's not even properly nendo-chibi
>>10240972black because some cucked out progressive artist felt the need to make a white character black in order to be woke enough. has nothing to do with how i feel about black people one way or another.
>>10240344The comic explains they're powers from ancient Power Rangers from Dimension X
>>10241645... alright, I'm okay with that.though it's hilarious that they're visually X-themed, as if dimension X also uses the greek letter chi to represent X
>>10241133>mkay. imagine her sitting down.In all fairness to them, it's pretty tough to visualize digitigrade legs doing human things. And they're even harder for the average person to spot anatomical errors in--most people cannot even detect poorly drawn human legs.Also, I'd agree with you on the "artist doesn't know how digitigrades work," but Tommy's look pretty good from what I can see.
>>10241655yeah that's the weird part, this artist seems to sort of get it sometimes?
>>10240329oh I get it, casey wears a mask normally, so his ranger form has.. only half a mask..
>>10241819Actually no, he does have a full maskDon't know why he's not wearing it in this shot though
>>10241133Her sitting down is not an issue at all.
>>10241655There's plenty of fursuits that do it all the time.
>>10240672No, I meant Hasbro making more iterations of the MMPR team. We'll definitely see these mutated rangers in their Lightning Collection line. The Turtles are just repaints with minor retooling from the original figures. Casey will also be made since he's pratically a repaint.
What ever happened with the NECA Diorama Sewer Modular Playsets?
New wave of Loyal Subjectshttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jwB4zKueQqM&ab_channel=MrAlanInTheWorldOfToys
>>10242157April lookin cute
>>10242157NECA FAGS ETERNALLY BTFO!
>>10242182Except not. That's a render, and everything Loyal Subjects releases is total garbage. Their TMNT shit is even worse than the rest.
>>10241850>MAN AND MACHINE
>>10242189Where the heck is her Toon Ultimate figure reveal? It's 24 days into 2023 already.
>>10242222And you have zero patience.
>YFW all the main TMNT merch after that Seth Rogen shitfest uses those fgly-ass designs just like how all the main merch before 2010 was based around the 2007 movie designs.Oh well, at least Biker Mice from Mars is getting another revival.
>>10242189Fuck that’s a huge head.
>>10239994I don't care if it looks great and is the best TMNT EVAR!!!! If Seth Rogen is involved, I will never watch it or buy ANY merchandise from it. He is a racist piece of shit. (yeah, cancelling racists DOES include anti-White racists too).
>>10242300Honestly the Seth Rogan designs look better than the 2012/Rise ones so I don't care. Mikey is the only weird looking one.
>>10242407You gotta admire that turtle taint though
>>10242228They said in an interview she was to be revealed last Spring.
>>10242411And things get moved around. There's a huge TMNT push this year, it makes sense to wait.
>>10241889you see nothing wrong with the heels bumping into the front third of the thighs as the knees bendthere is no stable position there. geometrically or physically.
>>10241890yeah with a fake heel just behind the knee. and it looks like crap.breath of the wild did the same thing for its rito models but did it a lot better.>>10242157>1god, she really IS cursed.
>>10242157The hair seems a bit larger than usual. >>10242161I hate this design who actually likes it more than Archie/toy?
>>10242433>and it looks like crap.No it doesn't
>>10242539your taste in fursuits is bad in my view.i realize not everyone can get and use digi stilts, but
how bad are the bootleg movie necas?
>>10242716as I understand it, the main issues are like, missing spots and less upper body flexibility. the internal shoulder piece isn't a separate piece anymore, it's fused to the shell.but the prices are also massive for bootlegs. stay away.
>>10242157She's got. I never understood comer toys until I saw this.
>>10242747You have problems
>>10242157face so tiny. so small. hair so bigi kinda like that, but it's not April's proportions.
>>10242747No you are the one having problems if you aren't attracted to a stacked red head in a jumpsuit.
>>10242157Big, if true.
>>10242157apparently there's variants too
>>10242157The neca toon line is kill
>>10242838The tragedy of this line is the non turtles are scaled decently but the turtles are enormous, like they need to be reduced by an inch, they seem to work better with the playmates, unless I'm misremembering
>>10242157I wonder how she'll look with my SHF Turts. I may have to snag her.
>>10242162Cool, does this mean we're getting machine gun Raph?
>>10242850>someone actually bought these
>>10242794>redheadehhh auburn. which I like better than redheads.but this toy does NOT look good. itl ooks like a bad drawing. One face has like, jowl lines, and the other looks like something out of Lawstripzand both of them the hair is too big for the face. or rather, because of the stylized look of the character, her face is actually too small.april just can't win. though it's probably because these are toy sculptors, not doll sculptors. they're used to dealing in burly weird guys and mutants>>10242162is this a reference to something? feels like something the old comics would do.
>>10242859>>10242853oh, there it is.>>10242838>the jacket from the mutatin' figureinteresting.
>>10242850damn that triceraton actually doesn't look too bad. looked way worse before
what is the best krang's android figure?I only had the normal sized playmates version back then
>>10242863this one is also looking way better than the last time we saw it.so it looks like the interior tentacles are just there all the time, which is smart, but does make for some awkwardness if you wanted to play like 'he's outside of his body but it's nearby'
>>10242863The NECA one, easily.
>>10242872Nah that one chips paint and is too heavy for display
>>10242877It doesn't, and it isn't. Sorry you have to resort to trolling and still be wrong about everything.
>>10242880Is it not top heavy? Does it not chip paint leaving flakes like your pillow after a night’s sleep? N*ca android krang has the best likeness to the cartoon but it has the typical qa problems plaguing this toon line, sorry if that hurts your feelings
>>10242863looks interesting but neca is still more accurate, the control sticks actually move around in the neca version and its pretty bulky so its probably more durable than standard neca
>>10242884I'm sorry you have to tell complete lies just to keep your shitposting going. The NECA figure is the best out there.
>>10242884be honest you broke that because you pulled the body upwards with no regard to the clip on the yellow frame.
>>10242893It was broken in box sadly
>>10242893Nah it's from Anthony-dipshit. He trolls with that same image all the time, he doesn't even collect toys.
>>10242896You're a bad liar.
>>10242899I’m not letting you advertise and gaslight your way through this general anymore, suffocating all discussion of other tmnt toy lines
>>10242929Funny how you don't actually talk about TMNT toys, you just shitpost instead. Never mind the fact that you know literally nothing about TMNT.
>>10242941I know literally everything about tmnt
>>10242929>>10242941Just pointing out that when I asked about BST AXN this type of back and forth bullshit just made me not buy anything because I couldn't get a straight answer.
>>10242857what are we supposed/allowed to buy, snob?
>>10242982You don't buy any toys at all, so what do you care?
>>10242857I bought them too, what are you going to do about it after you finish crying? These are actually fun toys, and I'm not paying for NECA or Super7's, I'm not spending a grand or more on fucking turtle toys.
>>10243011I'm sorry you enjoy Playmates' literal ass droppings.
>>10242964'back and forth' requires two different people, this is just one fucker replying to himself.
>>10243037It seems depraved, why would that anon do this for years at this point? What satisfaction could it derive from these fake exchanges?
>>10239090>>10239673>>10239691>>10239850the darker one on the right is indeed the repro
>>10242726when is the released date?
>>10244323April-May is the initial date if I remember. Depending on how things are going with the factory (since China is all kinds of fucked due to Covid) it may be an extra month or two on that.
>>10242880Mine had chipped paint. In fact, it had paint flakes in the box,before i even opened it.I look past it, because its a cool toy. But im not a reality denying faggot freak like you.
Anyone here have BST AXN shredder and the 2012 playmates turtles? Id love to see how they scale together
>>10244403No, you're a reality warping freak that chooses to lie about everything.
>>10244423Plenty of necas flake. Most of it is because neca paints over the joints. It isnt a big deal, to me at least.But why is it such an offense that people point it out? You work for neca? You fucking suck and are a pathetic faggot.
I don't have a problem with NECA because i understand they are display models, you are supposed to set a pose and just leave it for a few weeks min before touching it again.
>>10244766I mean you can move them as much as you want. It's fine. People that act otherwise are truly retarded.
>Playmates made Addams Family figures in the early 90s (That as expected, Wednesday, Cousin It, and a larger Thing were canned despite being shown on the back of the cards due to Playmates being Playmates.)>For some reason Playmates is able to get back licenses they shat the bed with last time they had them like Star Trek and something Kong-related.>There are TMNT/Stranger Things collab packs despite not making any sense.Ready for a crossover with another popular Netflix show that doesn't make any sense whatsoever?
>>10245406You know what...as stupid as it is, somehow TMNT x Addam's Family would ALMOST work in a weird way.
>>10245412To be fair, both TMNT and Wednesday are about a bunch of outcasts doing stuff.Mikey with Ined please.
>>10245412>TMNT X Addams Family with each member of the Turtles as a memberWho should dress in drag and be Wednesday? Also Casey as Gomez, April as Morticia, and Splinter in drag as Granny.
>>10245420Actually Spinter as Uncle Fester
>>10245420>>10245425I was thinking more 'they meet, Gomez is ecstatic. finally, real mutants! Not just an albino or a guy with a lot of moles, real proper actual mutants! in my house!" and he'd start crying.
>>10244415Couldn't find a pic of Shredder, but Casey is the same height
>>10246010Thanks anon! I think they scale decently enough.
>>10246010Also, i like that custome leo
>>10246990yeah that works
>>10242157hope china scales her up to work with neca and sells her on alliexpress
>>10247673Literally nobody will be doing that.
>>10242303>Fuck that’s a huge head.they shrunk her body for whatever reason
>>10242859>ehhh auburn. which I like better than redheads.>but this toy does NOT look good. itl ooks like a bad drawing. One face has like, jowl lines, and the other looks like something out of Lawstripz>and both of them the hair is too big for the face. or rather, because of the stylized look of the character, her face is actually too small.are you high?
>>10242861>damn that triceraton actually doesn't look too bad. looked way worse beforeprobably look almost ok if someone that could paint got ahold of it.
>>10247673All neca should be scaled down to work with loyal subjects, NOT the other way around. It is the hottest tmnt toy line today
>>10243019>I'm sorry you enjoy Playmates' literal ass droppings.loyal subjects are ok if you refuse to pay neca money and want something only slightly better than the old playmates figs.
>>10243019>Playmates' literal ass droppingsBST AXN isn't Playmates you inbred retard. Cry harder.
>>10247709>It is the hottest tmnt toy line todayWe're just posting total lies on the internet today, are we?
>>10245406>Ready for a crossover with another popular Netflix show that doesn't make any sense whatsoever?kind of hope they don't. They'll look really weird and clog the shelves.
>>10247714Did you even look at the picture? There's two Playmates figures in it. Holy shit, you really are a retard.
>>10245967>'they meet, Gomez is ecstatic. finally, real mutants! Not just an albino or a guy with a lot of moles, real proper actual mutants! in my house!" and he'd start crying.or treat them like anyone else and the turtles be spooked at how kind the family is.
>>10247715Look at their output and fun variants without the stench ol’ double dip all over them because of how inexpensive they are. For one thing, we’re getting a qt 3.14 April which neither n*ca or even super7 could deliver on, so loyal subjects is where it’s at for tmnt superfans now.
>>10247723>superfansOh, you're that troll. Of course. That explains why everything you said was retarded and wrong on every level. You know nothing about the line, otherwise you'd know that every single fucking figure has multiple shitty variants, because that's what Loyal Subjects DOES. They're garbage tier and below Funko for quality.
>>10247726How come there aren't numerous pictures of their product with snapped limbs, heads fallen off in package, chipped paint, typical faults of the neca toon line? Loyal Subjects QC seems much, much better in comparison.
>>10247730There literally are. The figures fall apart super fucking easily and the wrists break because of how bad the plastic is. Nobody buys the things because of how bad they are.You are such a shitty fucking troll.
>brand wars againevery thread would you faggots just fuck already
>>10247730>heads fallen off in packageYou sure do troll about a ball jointed head being popped off a lot. I guess if you actually bough toys you'd know how that works though...but since you don't, well, all you can do is shitpost. Pretty pathetic.
>>10247739picrel is literally mineliterally was broken off in the package
>>10247744That literally isn't yours, you've trolled with that same image before, numbnuts.
>>10247745because it was mine, that's why i posted ita piece was snapped off of my mighty rocksteady and the black linework on my wingnut was fucked up on his teeth. peach paint curls littered the inside of the box on my android body krang, over and over again the neca toon line disappoints with its lack of QC
>>10247695i'm happy to hear someone that's not me saying this>>10247704did you not like my edit readjusting the face size?>>10247720john astin gomez would be ecstatic. raul julia gomez would treat them like any random person.either way grandmama would hit on splinter.
>>10247754You are such a pathetic liar. Why don't you show us your BST collection, since you're singing their garbage ass praises so much? Oh right, cause you don't buy toys.
>>10247757why im not getting my hopes up on the April. Look how much that face sculpt changed by release. April is forever cursed and loyal subjects are barely better than playmates
>>10247891sculpt looks like it may actually be the same, its the shitty plastic and painting ruining it
>>10248036It very much is not the same. It's "broad strokes" as hell.
>>10248037I think what he means is the plastic was incapable of showing that detail
>>10247756>"Thorn and cockroach pizza? Yuck!">"Wait, why are you eating it Mikey?
>>10248545>Wednesday asks if she could borrow Raph's sais so she can practice on PugsleyAlso each figure comes with Thing holding one of the turtles weapons.

>>10248549>bad guys show up at some point>Thing balls up into a fist, a mouser scoops him into its mouth>He bursts its face open from the inside
Another haul. Man, I've been having so much damn fun collecting this line. And I've gotten so many figures for cheap too. Most of the figures I've gotten recently I've only paid $3 or $5 for at my local shops. I would've thought people would be trying to scalp these guys just because they're old, but I'm happy that hasn't been the case.I'm also surprised at how much I like some of the gimmicky figures. I really love the Head-Dropping guys, and the flipping guys are real fun too. Sucks that the Wacky Action features don't work as well as they probably used to, and I can't test out my Talking Mike without his voice strips, but they're nice sculpts regardless.
>>10249968Always amazing when they still have any of their original weapons
>>10249968>I would've thought people would be trying to scalp these guys just because they're old, but I'm happy that hasn't been the case.oh those people are out there. Just go look at some tmnt lots on ebay. You have people with commons, in a lot of 8, with no weapons, missing hands and legs, trying to get $75. most of the figs are common as dirt. They made a lot of them. They kept pumping out the first wave for most of the run. And even after the show ended, KBToys were still ordering them and they came on a generic card. The only really rare ones are the weird side characters in the last few waves. Like the Cobra guy. see pick related. This was the card they were using when KB was still ordering wave 1 figs well into the series.
>>10250076found this guys post if you want a glimpse at just how many times playmates rereleased basic characters into newer waves. Its kind of nuts. Hard to imagine a modern toy company doing this to this level. https://forums.thetechnodrome.com/showpost.php?p=1823038&postcount=5
>>10250097Kenner Star Wars did it, which was what ruined me for modern lines. The "Collect Them All!" mantra, where you could get them all even as a late-comer, because they were toys and they wanted you to play with them. I absolutely hate these FOMO pushing sales tactics and limited releases. Especially fuck the SDCC exclusive nonsense.
>>10250076>They made a lot of themI still remember the wall of TMNT figures at..I think it was Wal-Mart or K-Mart...but it's when I bought the on card Krang's Android Body figure. I had stopped buying TMNT at that point, but I always loved the android body look. So that was the last TMNT figure I bought of the vintage line, when it was still in stores. Still have it too, complete.
>>10250107yeah it's particularly dumb because it only benefits scalpers, not the company selling the shit
>>10242217THANK YOU!I was like "Power Extreme" was from something else...but I couldn't remember what
>>10249968I had that talking Mikey as a kid. Even brand new, the talking strips didn't work very well. I remember being really disappointed by that one.The flipping turtles were awesome though, really great Mirage-esque sculpts. I wanted them so bad as a kid but never found them. The storage shell Turtles became my "main" Turtles instead.
>>10250297yeah I loved the flipping ones. I think i loved the mutating ones most of all. Their legs could do proper snap kicks
SpeekyGeeky is doing a new interview with Trevor. A time stamp list of the video "leaked" and got removed. They'll be discussing Ult/ April and some other goodies like the Dimensional Portal, accessory pack, and it looks like we're getting Tiffany (Burne's plaything) and Aunt Aggie (April's aunt).
>>10251126>Aunt AggieFuck yeah!!! The toy I always wanted as a child!
When is NECA going to make a figure of the gangster with the tickle fetish?
>>10251135randy doesn’t like feet
>>10250107>I absolutely hate these FOMO pushing sales tactics and limited releases. Especially fuck the SDCC exclusive nonsenseI have a feeling what we have now with FOMO is deliberate. I think the higher price tags are part of it too. 5 years before this started, there was talk of tiered pricing. Where essentially you charged more in richer areas to richer people and had products just for your wealthy customers. I have a feeling Hasbro probably met with a consultent years ago that pushed this and hasbro bought into it. That is why we are seeing these price hikes and then stuff go to sale real quick. $25 marvel legends and then suddenly target has them for $7. To us it looks like bad business. But to Hasbro and target it is deliberate. They made their big money off the people who paid $25. Then they make a little less on the people paying $7. The FOMO part comes from the fashion industry. It gets you to pay the $25 now. Because you dont want to miss out. Lego was the big case study with this. For a while, new old lego sets would be worth more than gold per weight. Why? Because they would end runs on kids as they got new licences. End the licence, then push it out of the stores on clearance in January. Like the old Avatar the last airbender temple kit is now worth like $350. That was a $30 kit at release. Exclusives are part of both FOMO and tiered pricing. And stores like it because it gets people in their stores, ideally. hasbro has bet too much on all of this an almost fucked themselves. Covid fucked them hard. Its really hard to put into words just how much hasbro stock went to overstock stores last year. I went to a lot of Ollies and similiar stores last year and towards christmas some stores had as much if not more toys than walmart or target. Just walls and walls of it at 75% off. I remember one shelf having like 300 talking baby yodas at $8 each. Those are suppose to retail for $28
>>10250139>yeah it's particularly dumb because it only benefits scalpers, not the company selling the shitwalmart thinks it helps them. But whomever does ordering and works with Hasbro must be asleep at the wheel. Sure, all those cosmos flew out of the stores. They got guaranteed sales. But that was one figure in a box of 8. Why did they order so many remold blurs? So many beast wars recolors? What made Walmart think any of those exclusives would sell well? and why order like 100 of them for every store?
>>10251126>Tiffany (Burne's plaything) and Aunt Aggie (April's aunt)lol, they are so going to pack Aggie with Tiffany because they know a lot of guys are going to shell out for Tiffany.Also, what are the odds that Tiffany gets some slight changes and we get a release of ravishing reporter April?
>>10251207Fuck off troll
>>10251226they really wouldn't have to change much
>>10251261also, April does wear this outfit in purple one time
>>10251211>5 years before this started, there was talk of tiered pricing.I thought it was understood that products are more expensive in richer states where people make more money.
>>10251215they'd sell a lot better if they SOLD THEM ONLINE
>>10251560>I thought it was understood that products are more expensive in richer states where people make more money.anon, only at specility stores. Most targets and walmarts all have the same prices on toys
>>10251605huh. everyone says like, every product in california is expensive and every product in alabama is cheap. because otherwise alabamians wouldn't be able to afford diddly squat on what they get paid. i thought the whole thing about online shopping is that, for once, there and only there, prices are the same nationwide.
>>10251627>huh. everyone says like, every product in california is expensive and every product in alabama is cheap. because otherwise alabamians wouldn't be able to afford diddly squat on what they get paid. i thought the whole thing about online shopping is that, for once, there and only there, prices are the same nationwide.someone from cali can step in, but I'm pretty sure target has universal prices for toys. I think its food, gas and some clothes that are higher in cali.
Toys R Us used to do higher prices in more affluent areas. It was their "bump up" program.
>>10251703i mean it's just common sense. if people make more money at their jobs, for example if they work at target, then they need to charge more for the products at that store. that's basic economics. The secret is realizing we all benefit when all the numbers go up. sort of. the values, not the numbers, that's just inflation.>>10251710ahhh do take pics. I feel bad that I didn't.
>>10251710The plastics for these guys feels a lot... Stiffer? Harder? Than the usual Neca material. Anyone else with this set able to confirm?
>>10251779No? They're the same as anything else they've put out.
>>10251779felt the same to me, but I haven't really played with mine a ton since I got em, and when I first got em they were outside in the cold for a while, so
>>10251812>when I first got em they were outside in the cold for a whileThat might have been it. They didn't feel cold but the familiar squishiness is coming back as I fiddle around.
anyone else kinda feel bad having such a big expensive collection and not playing with them often? There's just something about figures in general, they don't wanna stand, their shelf arrangements are always a hair away from total collapse, their joints always feel right on the brink of breakage, and weapons are really hard to move in and out of hands. At my old place I used to at least grab a zoid and take it into the bathroom every other day and fuck around with it. and a lot of those had broken motors.
>>10251941quick a pickle of a chungus when trying to figure out how to get a boner anon, I understand
>>10251953I understood a few of those words but i'm lost
>>10251986He's a troll that shitposts that same stupid phrase in multiple threads.
>>10252010Now don't be having a meltdown anon, its a helluva kino and based time in any and all tmnt threads.
that is a bot
>>10252138where the fuck is his shell
>>10252143These cost cutting measures are getting ridiculous
>>10252130>>10252138just a reissue of the 12 inch turltes from 1989
>>10252244kek>>10252239good lord... well I guess the original had a pretty small shell too. the plastron actually seems better than the original, so that's exactly one point for them.
>>10252244If you click the link DIRECTLY ABOVE your post you can immediately see that it is not. It is a completely new mold, much smaller and stylized differently.
April looks like she shit herself suddenly
>>10252719Casey's mask looks pretty bad. It's the one people would want to use for this release, but the sculpting and shape are too soft and wrong. Weird.
>>10252721Slash is Slash.
Wow someone finally made a decent April.
>>10252743If you think that's "decent" even, you have serious mental problems.
>HEEEEY YOOOU GUUUUUUYS
>>10250076i just got back into playmates turtles and i'd be perfectly happy with buying repros at retail but the obsession with faithful cardbacks, accessories, and scalping is really hilarious. i've ended up watching more loose originals and softheads than anything else because i'd be totally happy with a loose figure with weapons only.i've been watching undercover don the most because they seem to have made a lot of them. usually goes for 25-30 but i'm tempted to get him for 40 on card and cracking him open just so i get all the accessories and clean stickers. it's come to this.it was one of the most popular toy lines of all time. they made thousands of them. why are they so expensive?
>>10252743>>10252745Oof, at least NECA new Ultimate April will be revealed this year. None of these"collector" figure makers can get her right. Shame the Japs don't give a shit about TMNT at all other than the turtles.
>>10252239hmm, i'm on the fence. i'll probably have to buy at least one, though
>>10251710I finally got my SotO 4-pack yesterday!
>>10252719>>10252743>>10252745I didn't know Robot Chicken got another wave of figures
>>10252719>>10252743>>10252745The curse continues!
>>10252719what is that character art from?
>>10253352Licensed merch. Same with Bebop and Rocksteady and the merch Turtles all having weirdly different designs.
>>10253369whoever is doing modern tmnt "art" for packaging and tshirts should be fired. it's awful.
>>10252719i couldn't put my finger on the expression but that's it exactlylook at that giant-headed box art too. actually.. the head is in scale with the arm and the thighs, but the torso is minuscule. your elbow shouldn't reach down that far.
>>10252743face too smolhair is right size>>10252979aren't they just great?do they have any hands that can hold the ooze canisters though? I didn't try
>>10251126about half an hour before this little shindig starts.
Nothing to speak of so far. Ult. April is in a VHS style box, comes out this year. Comes with nearly all the old one's accessories.
>>10251126>>10251127Welp, no pics of the ultimate April. What a disappointment.
The Dimensional Portal is being sold by itself. Has lenticular cards for different portals.
>>10253750that's actually kind of cool. good prop
So there's not actually Tiffany or Aunt Aggie happening. They have digital sculpts that they use for the props (photos etc). Trevor explained that the majority of the figures were "never going to happen" though, and then they end up happening because the sets keep selling so well. So who knows what the future holds.
>>10253779sorry help me out. in what way do these mockups of figures they have no intention of making.. assist in the creation of props or photos?
>>10253786Cause they can pose the render for a photo that is then included as a framed photo or something with other characters. It's just something one or two of the artists put together real quick. Now, in the future, they COULD use them for a real figure if necessary.
>>10253792Oh okay, when a figure comes with a prop that shows another character in a photo or something like that....... but why wouldn't those just be screencaps from the show / 2d drawings approximating them? why would you spend the money making a whole model? the photo accessories aren't photos of cg models, right? like the TV with April on it shows a drawing of her..
>>10253805I think a lot of the time it's because they wouldn't be able to get a clean enough shot without having to doctor the image some anyway. Without some clean rip of the cartoons, it'd be kinda fuzzy/blurry. Plus this way they kind of fit within the "world" of the toys.
>>10253807i would like to see some examples of these, I thought I'd been paying good attention to the toon accessories because they make me smile and remind me of the old days
So not a ton of news or reveals. The interview was filmed near the end of last year.
>>10253812There's a photo of Tiffany that came in the Channel 6 pack, that's that Render up there lit to look like a toy. The photo of the handsome news anchor is another one, the upcoming April Ult. has the Aunt Aggie digital sculpt used as a photo for her. And nooot quite the same, but this painting of a cheese was in an episode for 2 seconds, so they had one of their artists copy that and now it's going in the accessory set that's coming out this year.
>>10253813interesting paintjob for a comics figure..>>10253818yeah see that's more what I remember. I don't recall seeing those renders in photos. very odd.
>>10253813triceraton paint deco looks awesome. just makes fugitoid look so awful in comparison. hope they re-release utrom and fugitoid with more impressive deco.
>>10253918Are you high? The Fugitoid looks exactly like he did in the comics.
>>10253929Way to out yourself as not a Mirage comic fan, IDW nu-fans need not apply.
>>10253779Gay. I got my hopes up.
>>10253944You've never read a Mirage comic in your life.
>>10253929>being this retardedthe paint deco is literally drawn by 4 year old sweat shop slave labor and it shows. no finesse at all.
>>10253733What is this? They're kinda interesting, I sorta want them because they're so weird.
>>10253813This looks unbelievable. And judging by the Utrom, he's fucking massive. Zog was always my favorite, I thought we would never get a good toy of him.
>>10254167I think the jaw could have been hinged further back though, with maybe some cheek stretch flesh in between that's attached to the bottom jaw. but maybe this is about right for a tricera I dunno. i'd have to see how he looked in the comics again
>>10254185Triceraton mouths aren't much like triceratops mouths. They have very human-looking teeth arrangement, and from what I've seen, aren't really drawn with that cheek stretch bit, even when their mouths are wide open.
>>10254205well then it should have just been further back. maybe. to me the hinge looks slightly too far forward. or maybe the hinge shape just looks awkward.
>>10254224Oh yeah, I agree with that. It could have looked better. I'm not really unhappy with it either though, it could have been worse too.
>>10254108So you've never actually looked at Mirage art at all, got it.
>>10254165That is the rest of Rocksteady and Bebop's gang. And Jersey Red. They'll be coming out as 2-packs here soon.
>>10253395I haven't tried it yet. But I'm kinda iffy on it.
>>10254380i am an artist. i assure you i know more about this than you. have a seat, zoomer.
>>10254918i hope movie 2 splinter has hands that can hold the canister
>>10255350You are nothing, and you aren't even aware that Fugitoid and Utrom match the art perfectly.
>>10255664Nah the utrom teeth are all wrong but a nu-tmnt fan wouldn’t know this
>>10255786Nah, you're wrong. But then you aren't a TMNT fan at all.
>>10255664not even OP but you're a faggot and you're wrong
>>10256059I'm the OP and you're a retard. The Fugitoid and Utrom match up with the artwork 100%. That's why they look the way they do, moron.
>>10256059you can always tell when the neca anon creates the thread because it’s so biased. where is the news that the s7 glowie turtle boys are shipping or literally anything other than news focused on randy's gifts
>>10235620the look is perfect for them you absolute retard. but i'm not paying anywhere near retail for those, if i cared to get them at all
Has anyone put the 1991 Head Droppin' Leo belt on the original/any re-release regular Leo? I'm curious how the strapless black belt looks
>>10256337You mean the news literally right here: >>10232439You fucking idiot
>the only decent April is a fucking furryI want off this ride...
>>10255581If he has open hands I suppose he can hold it with both on the bottom. But he can't do the putting the canister back together scene then.
These are your new Ninja Turtles created for a modern audience. Because of this, the there are two female turtles (to ensure equal representation). One of the female turtles will be the leader with no flaws because #girlboss. One of the male turtles (probably the big one) will be a weak beta male because #toxicmasculinity. The other boy turtle will be either gay or nonbinary because #lgbtqia+representationmatters. And the last female turtle will probably be a brilliant scientist because #womeninstemcareers. Have fun. Can't wait for NECA to release the figures.
>>10256610I like the fat one. I bet he farts a lot.
>>10256571yeah but this one is just too small -overall-she's out of scale with the rest of the line, even if her head is in proportion with her body.by the way how did they get the tail in, did the original have a 'stand hole' there because they had this in mind from the start to recyc the body?
>>10256610>hey, we have a formula that's really working here with the last ronin. strong, masculine, muscular, classic TMNT aesthetic.>for the sequel, we want the same level of success, however, let's get rid of literally everything that made it successful, and then find someone other reason to blame when it inevitably flops.
>>10257046that's business these days. do whatever you can to sabotage yourself, make as little money as possible, blame someone else when it goes wrong.and inevitably people will just go 'pff capitalism. please take over, government, and save us from these evil moneygrubbing corporations'like naw, the thing we're expecting? the thing they used to do, that built our childhood entertainment? that was capitalism.
>>10257035No, the tail and pelvis is a newly tooled piece.
God damn the Last Ronin's head is really on there tight, might have to bust out the hair dryer to swap his head.
>>10257107ah interesting, so they couldn't recycle the whole thingthat means there's a bunch of molded but unused april asses out there somewhere, in a big box.
>>10257153do it. I wish I had one of those.
Such a cool fucking figure.
>>10257224Does it have calf/ankle swivels? It doesn't appear to.I wish more companies would realize how crucial this joint is. Without it, wide stances just look bizarre because the feet have to be cocked way out to the side, and are often unstable as a result.
>>10257224>mikey, your judge dredd costume needs a little work>>10257304dude real life ankles can't swivel, you just sort of shift the foot and fake it, which puts strain on the tendons and shit. anyone doing these stances would always have their feet spread way out, which IS more stable. you're suggesting making them a little bit pigeon-toed?
>>10257324well okay, SQUIRREL ankles can swivel.
>>10257324You're not really understanding the issue here. To get Garax in a super wide stance with feet flat on the ground, his feet need to be nearly pointing directly left and right respectively. This means he cannot be posed hunching or crouched at all, he will fall right forward because his feet are pretty much sideways. I need to have his back rigidly straight to keep him upright in such a stance. It really limits what you can do with him.>real life anklesThis is all sort of a moot point anyway though, since toys =/= reality and what works for a real person doesn't necessarily work for a figure (and vice versa). You sometimes need to make unrealistic concessions to make toys move like we do, because it's simply not possible to mimic the interactions of muscles, tendons, soft skin, etc. in a hard plastic toy. And by the way, I CAN turn my feet inward while in a wide stance, it's just that my ankle isn't providing the rotation, my hip/thigh are. Which is ALSO something that Garax lacks, since his thigh swivel is blocked up the sculpt and barely moves.
>>10256481I posted that not the NECA advertising op
>>10257324>>10257383For example, let's take horse stance. The guy on the left has his feet facing pretty much forward. This allows him to compensate and shift his weight pretty well, you have the entire length of your foot to modulate that. The guy on the right will be far less stable, he can be tipped forward or back easily because he is modulating his balance on a thin strip of foot. He does not need side to side stability, it is a poor choice for this. Garax can only do the pose on the right.Also, I juuuuust noticed I posted in the wrong thread, I was talking about Garax in the NECA thread (who has the same issue) and mixed up my tabs. Sorry. Anyway, I think you get my point about why calf/ankle swivels are important.
>>10257304He can get a pretty deep ankle pivot, it's mostly his hips keeping him from getting in there real deep.
>>10257388No you didn't, you lying retard.
>>10257383>To get Garax in a super wide stance with feet flat on the ground, his feet need to be nearly pointing directly left and right respectively.... disagree? show me>can't be posed hunchingin my experience 99% of tmnt figures can't -not- be posed crouching. toys in general really.>laps hip rotationwell that's a problem then. hip rotation is a very important joint. also what's this garax stuff, that's mikey isn't it?>>10257399first of all, when would you (or could you) ever spread an action figure's hips that far apart? almost 180 degrees, that's insane.secondly how the fuck is that guy on the left doing that. it looks awful and unnatural.>neca threadohhh I see. we have a lot of crossover
>>10257474>secondly how the fuck is that guy on the left doing that. it looks awful and unnatural.It's a common stance in japanese martial arts, it's not supposed to be natural. It helps build leg muscle strength.
>>10257479what's wrong with a normal squat, with your legs at 90 degrees from each other, each about 45 from your body? jesus
>>10257483Go ask the fishmongers 100 years ago who brought it from China.
somby gonamake a new thread?
