For those that would like to watch the Samurai Ninja Turtles reveal video, it is here: https://youtu.be/obZOHi_xmTgNot a ton of information -yet-, as that'll come out closer to SDCC for the orders and all. Trevor has said they are all new sculpts, they have wired cloaks, they have three scepters, at least one of them is blown up/destroyed. They also come with a set of 1990 alternate heads (fighting/angry faces) that they couldn't cost out with any other set, so they're being thrown in here. Also TMNT rubber duckies.
Probably the worst Rocksteady. Maybe the design works better onscreen but man I just dont get why this design was approved. Leatherhead too.
Fwoosh revealed the SDCC Pizza box Keno set: http://thefwoosh.com/2023/05/neca-tmntii-the-secret-of-the-ooze-has-a-special-delivery-coming-to-sdcc-2023/I believe this is just an early way to get the Keno and bike pack, plus some fun extra items like a shirt, magnets, keychain, etc. Ernie's having a good time.
>>10435551Indeed, it is not great. I mostly hate how bad the scaling is. Like they couldn't have tried a little bit harder? Even the vintage figures had larger bad guys.But yes, these are Battle Pack 2-packs with a build-a-diorama. Each figure has battle damaged deco.
Eastman with the Mirage Splinter
52Toys MEGABOX MB-23 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
And more Mutant Mayhem glut
>>10435548>They also come with a set of 1990 alternate heads (fighting/angry faces) that they couldn't cost out with any other set, so they're being thrown in here.we know EXACTLY what those are doing heregod dammit, there goes my wallet
>>10435548In what way is this a reveal. they don't.. reveal them
>>10435548Jesus christ that neca fuck sounds so bored and uninterested in being there. You'd think he would pretend to be more personable while shilling randy's crap. Also that's not a reveal. Doesn't matter if he mentioned everything included they did not reveal the toys. Just makes me hate the company even more.
wish they'd re-release the first movie accessory pack
>>10435559>>10435551>>10435559>>10435561>>10435564They just look like they were stored in a box with terrible paint rub or used with playwear.
>>10435546I miss Rise already. Someone wanted it to fail and they succeeded
So i bought retro wing nut, really pleased with it. The legs feel loose but it's not a big deal, I'd say it's worth a gamble for $10. May end up giving krang or Baxter a shot
>>10435551Not only does he have a terrible design but Playmates is yet again making all the villains smaller than the turtles. They never learn.
>>10435556Shit, might have to try to get this for the accessories alone, hopefully it isn't just a SDCC exclusive.
>>10435619Thanks for the troll post. You've shown you don't know anything about the line or that Trevor isn't some over the top youtuber, the guy is very enthusiastic about the line and loves talking about it with people. Sorry your rotted brain couldn't get your jollies. And yes, it is a reveal. You will literally say anything just so you can bitch and complain.
I swear I'll become Randy's personal sex slave to get new 2K3 figures. Even the turtles would be fine (2K3 Shredder would need to be single-packed though, given the show's twist).
>>10435862Reissues have been hit or miss. Some are perfect, some are trash. Krang is better than the 2013 reissue. Rocksteady & Bebop have paint budget cuts. Shredder is weird with the head in blue & the face painted on, with a new leg that sticks back. Mutagen Man was infamous for lacking accessories.I suspect in 5 years Playmates will either be absorbed by a competitor or just out of business. Their retail presence is poor & they can't maintain any level of quality.>>10435676"Battle damage" paints on toys can fuck off. It never looks right even in special cases where it's the point of the set.
>>10435551>>10435581This has got to be the lowest point of the ninja turtles, but I’m continually surprised…
>>10435568These are literally just repacks of all the single carded figures? What's the point?
>>10435942I think the paint apps on the turtles show scuffs and damage, see>>10435551>>10435559>>10435561>>10435564
>>10436198Correct, they are "battle damaged" on both characters. They aren't very good attempts, but there you go. That's Playmates for you.
>>10436313It’s perfect in the style of the billion dollar film. The great revival of Playmates in the year of our lord 2023 is the biggest story of toy collecting in some time, a tale of the great phoenix rising from the ashes to slay randulf and destroy any momentum neco had. Sadly the sacrifice for this development was super7 but brian served out his purpose and did so in an admirable way, as always.
>>10436395You are such a delusional creep
>>10436545keep replying to him, that'll solve it!
>>10436573Keep white knighting him, that'll solve it!
>>10436576right, white knights are totally known for their policy of defending people by advocating they be shunned. that's like rule 3 of chivalry.
>>10435546>VHS box set of TMNT 3 Samurai Turtlesis this going to be a one off thing like the musical turtles?
>>10435796And that someone was, like, everyone involved? Lol, this show was guaranteed to fail from the start. The previous show wasn't even dead and gone yet before Rise got announced, so many already figured this was just gonna be a case of Viacom continuing to milk the franchise for all it's worth and already had disregarded it. Add in the poor reception to the new designs and the different character dynamics, not to mention it's another case of redhead erasure with April and how well THAT went down, failure was all but a guarantee. I'll give it something though. It being traditional 2D animation works in its favor. 2K12's 3D shit was soo bad, and it allowed them to be so lazy with sets and action scenes. Your pic at the very least looks dynamic and interesting, even if you dislike the designs.
>>10436687someone said earlier they would have individual releases too and this is just a special one that also comes with new 1990 heads? I think? or maybe I was mixing that with the Keno set that has a SDCC exclusive expanded collection and a normal version later
wait a minutefuck, so the extra 1990 heads are SDCC exclusive too?>>10436706yeah if that show had just been not-turtles, I would have watched and probably enjoyed it.
>>10435796>>10436706>>10436710I actually would like to see the team work on the new Biker Mice from Mars show. Rise's style and tone would fit better with a BMFM reboot. As long as they don't make Modo a fucking ogre like Rise did with Raph.
>>10436744absolutelyI also feel that way about those horrid michael bay movies. Biker Mice? He'd nail those fucks. He GETS their whole vibe. Turtles, not even close.He'd also do well at Street Sharks.
>>10436744also honestly, big-ass Modo? That could.. kinda work. He was already conspicuously tallest. I love how most of the post-TMNT hero teams tried to vary up appearance more, from battletoads to C.O.W. Boys. they realized that while it is cost-effective to be able to recycle bodies or keep everyone at the same body type, it's more fun if they're unique and stand out from each other.plus imagining the big guy on the team with a robo arm just brings me back to Mummies Alive.
>>10436771Personally I see his possible redesign as the "big cyborg" resembling Cyborg from the 2003 Teen Titans cartoon (Maybe even get Khary Payton to voice him).
>>10436778they probably would, dorian harewood's gettin a little old isn't he?biker mice wouldn't be the same without the full old cast but at least two of them are dead and one is canadian
>>10436786I really hope the new show is a complete reboot of the series with a new continuity and voice cast to avoid making the mistake the 2006 did.Maybe they can get the old VAs like Rob, Ian, and Dorian to appear in new roles, cameos, and a crossover with the 1993 show.
>>10436793yeah honestly that's the best way to do itif it can't be the same as the old days, make it its own thing. be like 2011 thundercats (but retain your good writing team and don't deliberately write a season ending cliffhanger when you know damn well you aren't getting greenlight for a second)i worry what modern people would do to it.. but isn't it about time we got a 90s period piece cartoon?just as long as Ronaldo Rump doesn't run for president. please, guys. stop giving it attention.
>>10436707There's been no official confirmation, but yes, there will likely be 2-packs of the Samurai Turtles. Though I can't say for sure what will or won't be excluded. Keno is getting a regular release though.
>>10436854.. i guess i'm free then. I was going to have to get these, because of those alt heads. but if they're going to be such dicks as to leave them con exclusive, then fuckem
>>10436866I mean it doesn't mean they're dicks. That is the whole point of having a con exclusive... Beyond that, there's nothing that says it would be the heads that are excluded. They seem to try to make these only the VHS packaging and maybe one or two small accessories (that end up being made available later). The Secret of the Ooze pack's got that night club standee that's exclusive to it, but that's pretty much it.
>>10436878>The Secret of the Ooze pack's got that night club standee that's exclusive to it, but that's pretty much it.you mean there was a con-exclusive version of it that came with a standee? because the special VHS packaging one sure didn't unless i'm misunderstanding the thing in question.
>>10436880The big VHS Secret of the Ooze 4-pack they did has a night club standee. Do you have the pack? Did you make sure you pulled everything out of the box? Cause it should be in there.
>>10436883fuck me in the ass, i threw away something important? I.. i thought I was careful. I even saved the box, flattened.god i think I would have noticed a standee though. and i'm not seeing anything like that when I look at the contents online.
>>10436883oh wait you're talking about the turtles themselves, the 4-pack? I mean I got that too, but I didn't notice anything special inside. and again, nothing listed in images of the contents online
and i've just looked up a review of said vhs box set, no standee. anon. did you fuck with me? if so, nicely done. wasted a solid panicked 15 minutes of my life.
>>10436921It's inside the box behind the background slip. Night club standee.
>>10436944oh oh oh, a backdrop. I thought you meant like, a fuckin cutout of vanilla ice or somethingyes I think I ... actually I may or may not have thrown that away, but now i'm not really concerned. My display doesn't much use backdrops.
>>10436958>a fuckin cutout of vanilla iceOh haha, no. Though that sounds hilarious and I need to make that myself to toss in the display. Mikey can dance with it.
>>10436960right? that's what I was thinking, it wouldn't be hard to make one yourself. just print it off (the worse quality, the more accurate) and glue to cardboard.
>>10436973Yeah that's gotta happen now. Seems like it'd be something they'd have in their lair, just to say "we met that dude" or something. Also man, this new TMNT merch is weird as hell.
>>10437319Honestly, I wouldn't mind an adult sized hooded turtle blanket. Would like a better turtle though.
>>10437319It's like having a penis on your head
>>10437319one of the most cluelessly energetic marketing campaigns in historyi've said it before, i think something fucked up is going on at business schools and there's a new crop of people learning diddly fucking shit about how to make money
>>10437782It actually feels a bit like the Episode I glut. But in a bad way.
>>10437953honestly that felt bad too. I was actually surprised episode 1 was as good as it was, the oversaturation made me think it was gonna be garbage.
>>10437985Stepping in poop is the peak of comedy. No film before or since has had the kind of masterful touch Lucas made to his Magnum Opus
>>10437998it really is, as long as the sap's got dignity. even better if you slip in it and land in some. but that only works if it's a real jerk getting what's coming to him.
>>10438357>walleyed aprilroffle>unpainted tail skate and tail spikes on Mondopretty sure he had at least some tail paint originally. looks like his abs are unpainted too..gotta say the mirage turts look pretty okay though. but.. no ankles in this day and age?
>>10438361Yeah he had at least a blue app originally. Gotta save those fractions of a cent, cheap bastards.
>>10438476in this case though, the original is clearly also missing lots of apps, and was confused about what it wanted. Super7 had to basically guess, sticking with purple for the elbow pads and blue for the spikes, but not painting the tail spikes because that'd be too much blue. I would love to see the original design doc for this original toy
>>10438357So the listing and cardbacks have these as "Adventures" TMNT. Meaning Playmates is trying to pass these off as Archie Turtles and that's why Mondo and April are painted so badly (on top of them being Playmates). I swear, it's like the idiots at Playmates are literally throwing darts at the walls on these releases. They are so out of touch.
>>10439001They're not out of touch, they're trying to do the absolute minimum amount of work that they think they can get away with. That's been Playmates for the last decade at least.
>>10438357I swear Playmates is run by the cheapest mother fuckers
Jada die-cast Sewer playset
>>10438357How pathetic. Those turtle recolors look no better than those bootleg NECA's. If they're really trying to sell these as Archie figs, then that makes them look even worse.
>>10439001given recent shit that sounds like a scheme to screw neca AND super7 out of doing comics-based ones.>>10439035let's be real, that was them going all the way backtmnt used them for the same reason the movies were independent. it's all they could get. if not for that ONE effort of hiring ex-mattel designers for the sculpting, nobody would care much for the old toyline. because it's the only quality thing about them. well that and the hilarious copy.
>>10439290Blame randy for refusing to rerelease the mirage turtles as to why the bootlegs even exist
>>10439947Wasn't the rumour that the molds were stolen from the factory, hence the prevalence of the bootleg versions?
>>10439947You are such a fucking moron.>>10439949Yes. The factory stole the molds and Neca didn't bother with trying to get them back because AT THE TIME Playmates had blocked them from being able to continue the line. Why spend the money on something you couldn't use? And they weren't about to spend money storing the molds anywhere either.
Pixel Dan has a great vid up of this guy's vintage TMNT collection: https://youtu.be/kXeyVL-EJboAlso him mentioning his work on the TMNT book.
>>10439956That seems fair. Maybe somewhere down the line they do a new sculpt with some of the modern improvements on the joints. IF Playmates stops kneecapping everyone.
>>10439975wait were the arms separate on purpose?
>>10439975I admit, I want to see Super7 release Metal Rocksteady in pink. I might even get it.
>>10440114he has the rare red version?and yeah I want that too, as well as the green robotic bebop that i imagined
>>10439975is that the turtle horde anon
>>10440138No, this guy actually buys toys and knows everything about what he buys.
>>10440695Last I checked the turtle horde required several purchases.
>YFW this is pretty much inevitable given how Nacelle is ran by fanboys who will likely beg Viacom and IDW for a crossover.Maybe we'll get one with the IDW/vague continuity and another with the 1987-inspired comic and 1993 show?
>>10438361The molds are almost a decade old, from the 2012 line
What can Super7 do now, if not vintage? I'd like to see some 2003 characters "adapted" into a vintage aesthetic. Before any of you mouth breathing aspies get butthurt I dared mention it, I don't care and will hide your replies.Cyborg (human) Baxter, Hun, the Fugitoid, or even that FNAF animatronic from Rise would be cool for an Ultimates release.
>>10440973Hard to tell, they seemed to be a lot less enthusiastic about the line after the first 4 waves even before Playmates started interfering They're all GenXers so I doubt they have much enthusiasm for the 03 series, and they probably don't want to have to keep fighting Playmates for approval on everything they release either. I could seem them squirting out 2 more waves out of obligation to complete 3 sets of 4 turtles and dropping the Ultimates line entirely, just sticking to their terrible little 5PA ReActions.
>>10441017Baloney, playmates was already interfering by that point. it was the talk of the industry for a while. brian valiantly held them off but randy "judas" falk torched the gentleman's agreement and betrayed his peer to nick. the same will happen to him now that mutant mayhem is coming and playmates has more pull than EVER BEFORE. enjoy your just desserts, randulf
>>10441036I think ol' Dandy Randy is doing just fine. The movie and cartoon lines have been a huge success, and the new comic lines look to be in the same way. Hell, maybe Neca will dip their toes into a wave of the 03 series now that the 87 series is relatively complete.
>>10440973Problem is how stylized stuff like 2K3, 2K12, and Rise are. At least Karai is just a regular-looking human who has been in different continuities which is why she works in a psuedo-Playmates style. Guys like Hun, Tigerclaw, and the Freddy Fazbear parody from Rise’s designs are too distinct
>>10441041What about the Red Sky stuff?
>>10441109randy doesn't rate the later seasons or red sky iterations of the turtles but the neco team led by the april customizer have convinced him that they need to finish the story with dregg and the like, so they will be made
>>10440883I don't understand that compared to other TMNT knock-offs that died in the 90s and are only remembered for brief nostalgia (Except for Mattel selling overpriced replicas of Street Sharks prototypes on their website) , BMFM's show lasted the longest (1993-1996), actually got a revival in 2006, and is getting another one soon.
>>10441123Make your own thread that show doesn’t rate at all compared to tmnt. the only acceptable tangent here is toxic crusaders, everything else is off topic full stop.
>>10441127>the only acceptable tangent here is toxic crusadersWut
>>10440138though there can be some overlap, a horde is a group, like an imposing horde of barbarians, while a hoard is something you have hoarded. held onto.
>>10440949that's when these new molds were first made? are you sure?>>10441088honestly Hun would fit better in playmates style than he did in 2003 style.>>10441144what he meant is toxic crusaders toys get to piggyback on TMNT threads, in the same way Bravest Warriors gets to be in Adventure Time threads on /co/it's not that biker mice discussion is banned, just needs to be brief, or in the context of a crossover with tmnt>>10441123street sharks is remembered for pushing the toy aspect harder than any of the other turtle followers, they were great and i'd love to have more like that again. big, detailed, imaginative, thoroughly badass. it's every other aspect that suckedBiker Mice had an excellent feel, not the least bit childish except in the way that 3 casual dudes just are with each other while being bros.
I just hope we get TMNT 2007 figures after 3.
>>10441155>3 casual dudes just are with each other while being bros.>childishAlso do these guys count as piggybacking of of TMNT? Ryan Brown created them and they actually crossed with the turtles a few times in the Mirage comics back in the late 2000s.
>>10441158anon did you read my post at all. i'm saying the only way in which they are not completely mature grown up adults is that they can still chill out and goof off as guys, like any normal adult guys. just as women never achieve emotional maturity, men never stop having a child's sense of humor.>Moo Mesaabsolutely. Their game alone made it very clear what they were going for.
Still no word on when Toon April goes up for pre-order? I don't actively pay attention to these threads so I need to spoonfed like a baby.
>>10441173Doesn't Viacom also own the Cow Boys? Wouldn't be surprised if they were considered to guest star on 2K12 before the show ended.
>>10441179i dont think so, noi'd like to be like you, but I don't want to miss out on pre-orders either..>>10441182do they? yeah they would suit the tone of that show okay.
>>10441155>that's when these new molds were first made? are you sure?Yes, they sucked back then, too. They lack a lot of needed articulation, even for the 2012 line.
>>10441304>lack a lot of needed articulationyou don't play with toys you are an adult necallector, articulation does not matter
>>10441310You can stop posting now.
>>10441304what? oh, you meant the mirage guys, got iti thought we were talking about mondo, april, etc. You were replying specifically to my comment about no ankles, got it. yes that was the standard back then, for cheap toys.
>>10441254> Originally a production of King World the series is now owned by CBS Television Distribution through their acquisition of King World in January of 2000. Paramount Home Entertainment releases CBS-owned programs to the home video market. CBS Consumer Products currently owns the video rights to Wild West C.O.W.-Boys of Moo Mesa DVD compilations.
>>10441336wow you don't hear that often. CBS and distributed by paramount.
>>10441304>They lack a lot of needed articulation, even for the 2012 line.What articulation are you expecting from a $9 basic line?
>>10441466They were shittier than the first set of 2012 Turtles. They actually had worse articulation than the first 4 turtles released in the line. That's inexcusable.
>>10441477that first set of 2012 turtles, from before the show had been shown, were really the last good piece of TMNT media until the modern collector-focused era, weren't they
>>10441563That's so weird because literally none of that is true. Guess you're full of shit.
>>10441640anon i'll pay you 5 bucks to stop replying i also think you're the same guy, same deal goes
>>10441646Stop defending tards
>>10441649and please stop acting like telling you to stop shitting up threads is defending people you don't likewho I'm still pretty sure are you
>>10441656It literally is him creating bogeymen to slay, please stop responding to him in ALL forms and like an unwatered plant he’ll die on the vine
I'm willing to give this new spiderverse turtle movie a chance but I can see these toys being right at home at my Ollie's alongside Power Players and the other failures.I really don't know what TMNT needs right now. I'm tired of reboot cartoons that last for a few seasons and give us the same characters and stories over and over. I don't want to have yet another set of turtles fighting for shelf space. I also don't want endless pandering to nostalgia. Saying this, I don't think I'd mind if the TMNT got a set of 4 new turtle characters and we could give Leo and the gang a rest.
>>10441684what if...okay this is stupid, but what if they just continued one of the existing properties that was not driven into the ground? obviously the 2003 show is unlikely, but laird always wanted to do more stuff in the movieverse>four new turtlesanon i am having great difficulty in seeing from your point of view here.
Vanilla Ice when?
>>10441668You have a keen eye, anon. The anti and pro necanon troll is diosoft who has a long history here and, yes, he is very ill.
>>10441706I'm just bored of seeing the turtles do the same things over and over again. I get it, Raph is angry, Donnie is now coded autistic, Mikey is annoying, and they still don't know what to do with Leo, and they fight the Shredder. Gee, I wonder who will win?It's a stupid idea, I admit, but I feel like we're a little starved for new stories and they aren't going to do anything with the pantheon of other characters in the lore. New turtles could at least force them to do something a little bit new. If I could pitch some ideas:>turtle with black bandana and bow&arrow who's a hunter, like Batman but with Mikey's temperament>girl turtle with white bandana and kusarigama, she's a tomboy with rollerskates
>>10441684>4 new turtle characters That's what The Last Ronin sequel did. Sales weren't as good as the first one, but reviews were positive. Im sure they will resort to milking it after the Rogan Turtles is milked dry.
>>10441684>>10441706They need to stop making turtles movies and shows for a long time. Focus on toys and merch at most. Then when that well runs dry, stop making that as well.Then in time, people will miss them and want to see them again. You get a good writing team together, come up with a cool, cohesive story, and bring the tmnt back.
>>10441763I don’t think a young crop of fans are imprinting on these new four turts no matter what they do. Lost Years shrunk the audience as the hype of TLR died down and so it’s just your typical tmnt comic consumer buying it
>>10441734anon, you haven't been watching the right turtles shitraph is angry, leo has a stick up his ass, don is booksmart and chill, and mikey is bright and creative but with the kind of Egoraptor-ass brain that he can't focus on laborious tasks and needs to indulge in entertainment instead. it's a great dynamic.i will say if Rise had made up entirely new turtles, it wouldn't have been as bad? but they basically did.
>>10441769I wonder if other companies will try to take advantage of TMNT’s current status and bring back rip-offs. I mean Biker Mice From Mars is getting a second revival and show, Toxic Crusaders is starting to get more attention with S7 and this year’s Shredder’s Revenge clone.And given how Mattel is apparently going to kill Masters of the Universe a fourth time what with the CGI show allegedly being canned, Origins distribution still being fucky, and who the fuck is going to watch Revelations 2 Electric Boogaloo except for stupid people and hatewatchers, may as well bring Street Sharks back.
>>10441660You sorry shit! It's literally you causing all these problems! And then you act innocent, what a fucking joke.
Australian Mutant Mayhem trailer: https://youtu.be/e9c9Q5F1fRMSuperfly is the main baddie and he's the one creating all the mutants. You can see Ray Filet, Mondo, Wingnut, etc in the group shot.
>>10442533just awful. look at his tiny hands. look at that knife. someone got paid to draw this.
>>10442533Looks fun. It's a little off-putting how YOUNG Donatello sounds compared to the other 3.
>>10442533Billion dollar film Finally something newsomething fresh Out with the old tired tropes and leaning on 87 cartoon nostalgia like a crutch This is what we’ve been waiting for anons
>>10442568All their voices seem...I dunno... one Turtle off? Like Mikey sounds like he should be Raph, Donnie could maybe work as Mikey, Leo would make a good Donnie and Raph's a good Leo.
>>10442568that looks fun to you
>>10442533This is what Rise of the TMNT should have been. Liking everything so far other than frumphy april. Hopefully Splinter is an actual martial artist turned Rat and not just some rando rat who found a borders bookstore How to Ninja for Dummies book in the trash. I at least want them to tease the rise of the Foot and Shredder in the after credits and introduce them in the series.
>>10442574>Out with the old tired tropes >and leaning on 87 cartoon nostalgia >Various 1987/Playmates OCs are appearing and Leatherhead is an evil cajun again but this time has a vagina.
>>10442533randy quaking in his boots and necamutt in his high heels rn. The nostalgia period has gone belly up with this film
>>10442615The movie is literally nothing but nostalgia you imbecile. It's only making the 80s toon stronger.>>10442574Wrong again diptard.
>>10442612Yeah, it's literally just the first couple waves of Playmates toys in the movie. The only "new" thing is Superfly, and that's just Baxter Stockman's schtick. There is nothing new here.
>>10442574It does feel like a reset of sorts, ushering in a new age of turtles which, as much as I liked them, 2012 and rise never did. The nostalgia bubble had to burst sometime and it’s a small price to pay seeing super7 fall if the same happens with n*ca. no wonder randulf rushed out the toon releases in a mad cash grab and is now pivoting to the niche comic figures with the vidya line tanking and the movie and toon lines coming to an end. That way he can sell the comic lines at online retailers comfortably now that shelf space will be in short supply as playmates returns to the top of the mountain once again while saving face that they’re targeting a different market (n*callectors) and don’t want to appear in big chain brick and mortar stores. Randulf is very conniving, that much is clear.
>>10442873Damn man, literally nothing you posted has any truth to it or basis in reality. And the movie is literally nothing but nostalgia. You are a dense turd.
>>10442865fuck they look so gross and ugly. I do not like this.
>>10442942it's not fun being sane is it
>>10442197Maybe there will be the tmnt clone revival, street sharks seems like an obvious choice. I wonder why they havent yet.
>>10442994None of them were memorable whatsoever
>>10442925Did they just reuse the weapon tree from the original Splinter?
>>10435564>bad guys as tall as the youngest preteen turtles yetEmbarrassing.
>>10443392Poor indie company, prease understand.
>>10443387Nah, the shurikens are more stylized.
Mirage Turtles 4-pack.
>>10443516>>10443518The eyes are too small and making them look wierd.
>>10443539They aren't and they don't look weird wither.
>>10443457oh yeah good eye, plus the original bow had an arrow and string built init might just be the angle but those shuriken look derpy as fuck
>>10443518far from my favorite Mirage look, but not badI feel like most of the time we saw the mirage turts in color, their red masks were a bit darker and their turtle green was a little yellower?
>>10443516I dont want 4 Raphaels. I've already been born into the multicolor masks aspect. I still wonder how Eastman/Laird handled the same color and if they ever made an error in their comics
>>10444209>I dont want 4 Raphaelstoo bad, you are not a comic superfan and don’t deserve this era of figures. you should be grateful randy is giving you these gifts at all
>>10443516They look alright. Faces are kinda scrunchy. Not like I'm even thinking of getting them. After getting burned so many times on Xenos and Yautjas, and getting a shit Fugitoid, I've lost all faith in NECA at this point. Sucks 'cause their sculpts are really good. But their decision to smear everything in shitty paint coupled with Playmates-tier QC just doesn't cut it for me.>>10444209The interiors were in black and white, dude. It wasn't until like Vol 2 that the comics were fully colorized. Up until that point it was mainly the covers that showed them all actually sporting the same color.
Quality, glad I bought this line for the turtle hoard. Goodness me, the HEFT on this bad boy. Tons of accessories, QA is top notch, just beautiful
>>10444235They aren't. And it's good to know everything you said can be completely ignored, because your opinions on the matter are shit. Nothing is smeared in paint, the qc isn't an issue either, retard.
>>10444235Do you have any pics of your Fugitoid?
Ultimate Mirage Foot Ninja. Alt heads, cloak option, looots of weapons.
>>10444269Just some of the weapons
>>10444209>I still wonder how Eastman/Laird handled the same color and if they ever made an error in their comicsI imagine it was pretty simple to go like "Wait, drew the wrong turtle saying that. okay let's change the line, or... change that weapon.. there, now it's the other turtle"they didn't have super distinct personalities early on, so it was probably easy.
>>10444269…fabric… almost never looks good I’m not digging the blue either
>>10444240honestly the quality is so high here, I'm astounded they're licensed.>>10444268i feel like if you're gonna do the shading on these, you should do the full shading so they have heavy blacks. it just looks hella wrong otherwise. at the very least, the base plastic color should have been darker.>>10444269oh that is a poor choice of fabric. it looks so thick and puffy, totally out of scale. I know softgoods are hard, but the original '88 Splinter toy had a robe made of the exact perfect material, it drapes properly on a toy that size.
>>10444278Fabric is also far more expensive these days than what that Splinter had. And even that was all scrunched and tied up to keep it in place.
>>10444268>>10444269Is this target exclusive or will it be available elsewhere?
>>10444284Foot enforcer is up for preorder on BBTS scam site so I’d imagine this will be too
>>10444289Fuck off, BBTS is not a scam site
>>10435546>>NECA's "April's April Takeover" showed us teases for Archie comics Turtle April, "Grammy April" from Last Ronin, Mirage April v2, and the 100th Toon TMNT figure, Ultimate Toon April!So uh, what do archie april, grammy april, and mirage april v2 look like? Or were the teases just screenshots of the comic art or something?Also is it me or is 100th april a bit... giraffe-ey?
>>10444289>Foot enforcer is up for preorder on BBTSThanks, anon.
>>10444304yw anon it was the responsibility of the neco op to let us know, but I’ll help out when needed
>>10444280I’m liking the style on these more and more each time I see them
>>10444280>has Baxter gunHe's called Superfly, but is there going to be a reveal that his real name is Baxter and the Turtles laugh at it?
>>10444281>Scrunched and tied uptrue, but this 'robe' here has an elastic waistband, so obviously that's not a big problem.I know things are more expensive, but wouldn't splinter's sorta chamois-esque cloth actually be cheaper? it's heavier, but it feels like it's far fewer actual threads. though I hear words like 'microfiber' sometimes so maybe it is more threads, just smaller ones.
>>10444301yeah the proportions ended up a little wonky. it's not just the neck. I think most of it is the shoulders and torso. The neck on its own seems fine, given the implied trapezius inside of the collar. The problem is it's like a full 4-5 scale inches higher than her shoulders
>>10444321God forbid you do more than shitpost.
>>10444301No, it's not. She's literally as she's looked in the cartoon.
>>10444301>>10444416I realize i've done a few of these edits and nobody fucking cares, but I've just done one more that I think improves her with just a simple tweak and leaving the neck aloneshe basically just needs a shoulder and boob lift, and then to have the rest of her torso elongated to catch up (though longer shins might accomplish that too, they look very short. she would be kicking herself in the mid-thigh if she kneeled)
>>10443539It looks like they based the sculpt off the later reprint cover of issue #1.
>>10444645hm but then the heads are too small
>>10444656You are right, so I've looked through some Mirage comic covers because I know I've seen those exact proportions on a comic cover before.It's almost an exact match for the volume 4 era. Even Mikey's smile matches this image.
>>10444670>>10444645...or the interiors for Return to New York. Why is this a mystery?
>>10444696was anyone saying it was mysterious?
>>10444280>5poa barf, it's 2013 again. To think Rise actually cared to give articulation to everyone. Yeah, April's a shit toy, but still look at the joints they bothered to give anyway
>>10444742i THINK that fly has knee joints and one elbow... but yeah they're pretty retarded.
>>10444696They pretty much confirmed they're from the Return to New York storyline. Basically all the figures have been filling out that tale. Zog, the clones, etc.
New prototypes leaked
Ok, this looks dope as fuckNew Trailerhttps://m.youtube.com/watch?v=IHvzw4Ibuho
>>10444948This does actually loom pretty fun. April's voice doesn't fit the character design, though. Bitch looks like Wanda Sykes but sounds like a teenager
>>10444925>>10444927>>10444932>2012 toys covered in sharpie in the backgroundYeah these are just customs
>>10445276whats it like being retarded?
>>10445340>Not mentally cataloging every terrible convention exclusive is retardedCalm your tism
>>10445340This was such a cool exclusive, I would've gotten it but it had no articulation so it was a statue. In the line they released some water changing ninjas which looked a little bit similar but still different and lower quality. So didn't get those either.
>>10445382This is a board for children's toys.
>>10445069you dont think wanda dykes sounded like that as a teenager?>>10444948i hate that you're going to make this successful
>>10445382speaking ofso there's no way to get SDCC exclusives without going there, right. there isnt like a limited window where you can order them online at presumably inflated expense.
>>10445531Not usually, either go in person or pay a store to scalp it.
>>10445531So that settles it: the neco con exclusives are NOT actually sdcc exclusives because they can be bought online not the actual convention.
>>10445633No, actually, it confirms they're SDCC exclusives, because they are made specifically for SDCC. There being some orders taken for the SDCC exclusives before the show don't change that fact. You are simply an illiterate retard. Sorry you had to find out this way.
>>10445644Nah, to be an exclusive you would need to physically be at the event, what you’re speaking of is an online exclusive something any regular joe could get
>>10445633Alot of toy companies used to post the reamining stock, or a select number of units of their SDCC exclusives up on their website. The original Movie Turtle set was an SDCC exclusive that NECA put up limited quantities up on their website for order. There were even multiple days you could try and get it, believe me, I tried.
>>10445649Nah, what you're describing is you being a full blown retard. You do still have to be at the convention to get the exclusive. An hour window to order does not change that fact.>>10445653He knows that, he's a troll. And a stupid one at that.
>>10445664You seem to be confused, it DOES change it, someone who has never been to sdcc could have a set from the pre-purchase window it is not the same. it is not the same, full stop
>>10445671It's literally the same. Full stop.
>>10445612alright I guess i'm freed from shelling out for the movie III turtles. I was already on the side of giving them a miss, it was only the exclusive heads putting me in a different mind.>>10445633>>10445644wait, so that anon was wrong, and you can order them online?>>10445653ohh so it might be possible but it won't be easy? that kinda thing?
>>10445701Like with every company, SDCC exclusives will go online at some point. NECA will put theirs up on the necastore a couple-few weeks before SDCC. They will give a date and time. Then they ship after the convention is over.
>>10445713The difference is neco put them up BEFORE, meaning pre sdcc, and thus not a con exclusive
>>10445718even that is wrong and would only be released in the SDCC timetable but not labeled an SDCC exclusive. You must physically be at SDCC for it to count.
>>10445713... well damn then, I guess I'll decide based on the price.Also I hope we get to LOOK at the blasted things before buying. I am just a sucker for cool armor. Also if the helmets aren't removable then that's gonna be a point against em, I'm hoping to swap in heads from the other movies
>>10445728>>10445718You're an idiot. They are SDCC exclusives. They are made for SDCC, an order going up before or after does not change that.
>>10445737>Also I hope we get to LOOK at the blasted things before buyingWe will. They'll have full pics here in a week or two. That's normally how it works, but you'll know whether or not you want it by that point.
>>10445742okay rad. thanks anon. this is why i stick around here.
>>10445744you’re welcome but thefwoosh might be more in your wheelhouse for up to the minute information
>>10445767alright so around the 4th of july I'll start checking fwoosh if I remember
>>10445804yes yes, the sewer den i am a longtime contributor and jannie mechamajin
>Not excited at all for movie III turtles>Hint goes up>Now I'm excitedI hate being aware of how susceptible I am to advertising
>>10445805a jannie on fwoosh you mean>>10445807they are a striking quartet in their armor, even in silhouette. it's genuinely cool armor.. they really did work hard on SOME parts of that movie. and the new effects studio... did their best. i remember seeing the splinter puppet from the guy who made it, and he seemed pretty proud.
>>10444948Horrible. Is this all they could think up for a movie? Should have been a Netflix series at most.
>>10444256Whatever, ya goof. To each his own.>>10444259Nah, I tossed him out awhile ago. He had bad paint on his limbs that started tearing out the box.
>>10445804He's trolling you. Don't listen to anything he says. He's some brain damaged troll that won't leave these threads.>>10445805Fuck off you lying weirdo.
>>10445885Oh so you were making shit up. Okay.
>>10446299aw maaan wait which part of it is a lie. will they still be selling it online, but fwoosh won't have the news on it before these threads do?
>>10446307All of it. He repeats that one user's name because he saw it in a thread on Fwoosh that got posted over here. He's autistic and repeats it constantly.However, yes they are going to do a pre-sale on the SDCC stuff online. And the news will likely hit Twitter and other places, and rest assured, it will get posted here. You won't miss out if you keep poking in now and then. We'll know more when they actually release the full images I think.
>>10446307Also I just realized where you got confused. This post is mine >>10445742This post is the troll trying to take credit for what I said and then BSing you: >>10445767
>>10446311right on. well then all that thanking I did of him, thank you insteadunless you're the liar. who knows! that's anonymity for you.>>10446318oh nevermind, those were your thanks. good, put those in a sack. they'll be worth something someday. take em to the thank bank.
This is a cool lineup of toysReminds me of the 80s
>>10446609>Reminds me of the 80sIt should, it's literally all characters from the 80s.
>>10446609Playmates and Seth Rogen have all the momentum rn, trailer 2 has been received well, the movie toy line is highly anticipated and merch is already moving. I was skeptical about the billion dollar film thing, but the stars are aligning.
Best Buy has a few new surprises up on their website for pre-order from NECA. This, and the Synjabot are claiming to be Best Buy exclusive. Take that with a grain of salt, but it seems possible.First is Wanderer Mikey
>>10446738Back of the box shows us that Savanti headshot that Mr. Eastman showed us was coming.
>>10446741And IDW colors Clone Shredder 3-pack.
>>10446742Crab claw could still be a bit more funhouse mirror but the trio made an impression on me in the comic as a kid so even the IDW repaint is a must own. If randulf keeps churning out these comic figures he’ll have another zealot on the board
>>10435546EE had the Rat king on their listing with wingnut but it seems they have changed the photo and listing to krang. Has anyone found a Rat King yet?
>>10446738Lemme guess. More Last Ronin shit?
>>10446992There are something like 9 concurrent TMNT lines going between multiple companies, wtf are you complaining about. Are you seriously upset that one of those 9 lines doesn't appeal to you? What are you going to do next, complain about the Playmates line cause it's woke? Just don't fucking buy it if you don't want it.
>>10447044He should buy the gundam turtles they’re fire
>>10446741where are the weapon accessories seems light on those why would i buy multiples if I can’t display some with different arms
The sick BSTAXN SDCC exclusive Mateus Santolouco TMNT are still available for preorder at EntertainmentEarth for those that want them
>>10447315individually or is the pack at 119usd different?
>>10447132Try actually reading rhe comic.>>10446992It's from the early Mirage run.
>>10447563I want guns not just katana sentry
>>10447567Rest assured it'll happen. This is just Best Buy's version.
>>10446742help me out, did these guys make an appearance in IDW and with these colors (presumably just on a cover) and looking this much like their mirage originals?
>>10447315FUCK they're out.Any chances of them or BBTS ordering more?
>>10447315Now that’s what I call an sdcc exclusivesuper detailed, highly desired styling of the tmnt. Loyal Subjects knocked these out of the park
>>10447814That artwork is nightmarish. Good for TLS for continuing to work away at their figure line.
>>10447781Neco op didn’t want to publicize this release because of his intense hatred of all things BSTAXN, which is why news broke so late here after the pack had long sold out and the higher priced individual releases were put up a few times, likely because of cancellations, but ultimately sold out for good it seems
>>10447814possibly the most butterface turtles ever. neck down they look great.
>>10447843Fuck off with that shit. Nothing was stopping you from posting about them yourself. But sure, play up your delusional story instead.
>>10447814They aren't super detailed, the articulation is exceptionally ugly in a way that only BST seems to fumble continuously. And "highly desired" is questionable at best. They're shit, and I feel bad for the people that bought into them. Especially if they've never touched a BST AXN figure before.
>>10447853>super detailed compare this set to the store exclusive santolouco ones then get back to me
>>10447850an op’s responsibility is sacred, no bias should be tolerated even by the self proclaimed neco op
>>10447865Shut the hell up
>>10447868cover all topicsall licenses it is /tmntg/ not the third active neco general take responsibility cover everything tmnt or pass the responsibility on cede control to another
>>10447883Stop trolling the thread with off topic bullshit, spaz.
>>10447899you k now your art style a shit when the funkos actually look better
>>10447899anything not neco lines are off topic santolouco turtles news buried by neco op a shared love of tmnt brings us together not company loyalty
>>10447909You literally do not buy any TMNT toys at all. You are off-topic shitposting, like usual.
>>10447921wait a minute, no L buckle?
>>10446742who let their toddler scribble all over these?
>>10448091i actually think this is one of the best examples of... this.. that i've seen. a lot better than >>10445340 this
>>10446738>>10446741>>10446742pre order on Best Buy
Guesses on the next TMNT crossover after MOTU? It would be stupid not to do a Sonic one given how connected both IPs are.Also Toxic Crusaders and Biker Mice From Mars given they're bumps in popularity.
Look at these fun kids toys.
>>10448821"-NYC-"is this how people graffito now? are the quotation marks ironic?
>>10447814N*CA isn’t touching mainline IDW for a very long time. This is great news.
>>10448901Too bad these fuckers are sold out everywhere.
>>10448877do you just go up to people and say "you're sane" ?
>>10448901They are doing mainline IDW, you fucking idiot. It's always been on their radar. Last ronin got priority because it's new and so well liked.
>>10449065No they’re not There isn’t a single mainline IDW ongoing figure neco have made or are in the process of making
>>10449072Imagine being this wrong
>>10449077Name the ongoing figure that randy has done or announced
>>10449086It's called SDCC you ignorant cunt. They're already working with IDW on the Mirage figures and Last Ronin. If you really think they're stopping there you're even stupider than you come off.
>>10449072Nta but Trevor has repeatedly said in interviews, both with Fwoosh and Toy Anxiety that they'd like to dig into the IDW comics. I imagine it's a matter of picking priorities when you already control 90% of the tmnt merch.
>>10449088I said ongoing/mainline and you’ve failed to produce anything. The Last Ronin is ELSEWORLDS, try again. The point being that The Loyal Subjects scooped randulf and it will be a long wait before we see Neca get their greedy mitts on that content whatsoever. Quit crying, you got Mirage and Ronin already. Chin up.
>>10449104>ScoopedThey literally didn't you ignorant troll. Show us your grand BST collection since you want to suck their dick so much.
>>10449107>still no secret ongoing neco figure so you don’t read the comics at all
>>10449104>greedyOnly in a fandom as shitty as this would some insignificant dork like you get all bitchy about a company actually using a license to its fullest and giving collectors EXACTLY WHAT THEY'VE WANTED FOR DECADES.
>>10448821nipple piercing kids toy yeah....
>>10449127I love neco movie and comic figures. The vidya line is TRASH and the toon line is riddled with QC problems and sucks all of the air out of the room. I hate those lines and would rather they devote themselves to the other two, you got me all wrong I’m a neconon too
>>10449132The video game line was excellent, and the toon line is not riddled with anything. You are pathetic.
Is there anywhere else besides BBTS and EE I can preorder the IDW turtles or should I wait for a restock?
>>10449088>It's called SDCC you ignorant cuntThere will not be a single IDW ongoing/mainline comic figure announced or teased at SDCC
>>10449267randy doesn’t get everything he wants IDW ongoing is property of bstaxn right nowneco can have ronin and continue with mirage if he wants to pitch a fit about ithe will end up like brian flynn you’ve been warned
>>10449274Your delusions are showing again.
>>10449203It’s pretty nuts, both places limited buyers to one a piece and the packs sold out in minutes with only the high priced singles being put up a couple of times before they were gone too. I hope you can get them anon, maybe they’ll list them again but being limited to 1,000 units seems unlikely for the SDCC EXCLUSIVE anyhow
people out there paying this much for Loyal Subject figures. must be funko collectors
>>10449336Yeah, they're in for a pretty sore surprise when they find out how bad those are.
>>10449284Must be because they're the closest to decent "basic" turtles not counting the Mezco set (Colored bandanas, non-lettered belts, brown pads.).
