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.

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.

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.

Vintage-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'.

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 movies

I 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
>>
>>10234285
This is a total lie.

>>10234296
Don'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.
>>
>>10234703
Probably 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 package
Literally 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.

They 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.

it'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)'

Gonna 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.
>>
>>10235620
desu 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 face
and 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.

>>10235620
I 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.

You’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.

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.

The 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
>>10239789
The 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.

>>10239820
roffle you must be a little younger than me. I found it the cringiest thing to date.
>>10239789
the 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 shit
on 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

>>10239832
Apparently 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.

One 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.

Yeah, 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.

huh, 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?

Cyclops 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.
>>
>>10240373
then those characters are wrong
people who say "fantasy elements mean X doesn't have to make sense" are the worst kind of fans.

>>10240338
You 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.

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.

On 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.

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.

No, 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.

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.

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.

Kenner 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.

I 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.

I 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.

>I absolutely hate these FOMO pushing sales tactics and limited releases. Especially fuck the SDCC exclusive nonsense

I 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 shit

walmart 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?

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.

i 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.

That 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.

i 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?

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.
>>
>>10253779
sorry 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?
>>
>>10253786
Cause 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.
>>
>>10253792
Oh 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..
>>
>>10253805
I 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.

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.

I 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
>>
>>10254185
Triceraton 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.
>>
>>10254205
well 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.
>>
>>10254224
Oh 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.
