You're going to display your Shredder with the best face and pose, right anons?
>>8774863That’s one unga bunga brow ridge.
>>8774863i almost wish these figures came with alternate feet for the weird ass poses they used to be in
>>8774885Yeah, even a toe bend would go a long way. You can still get them in pretty accurate toy poses though.
Not to ressurect this bullshit but did you guys see Randy addressing Rat King's diaper cracking on Twitter today?
>>8774898They can't admit fault because then they would be admitting to selling a faulty product knowingly.
found this at a flea market before.
>>8774898>>8774905What a liar Randy is
We’re the TMNT LEGO any good?
>>8774863I did this exact thing, yes.
>>8774898>>8774905As a Necafag even I cant deny this, what was he thinking??
>>8775027I hate how it was 2012 Turtles then Bayformers Turtles, then they dropped the license and megabloks was the one to do classic 80s-90s Turtles.
>>8774947hope we get this guy from super 7, was one of my favorites
>>8774906Oh fuck off you sorry cunt
>>8774863Shredder is so damn bishonen
>>8774863Probably during early April for a april fools display
>>8774947Nice, any weapons?
>got an email BBTS already got their S7 wave 1 stock inDamn, why don't they warn you anymore....
>>8774863I wasted no time replacing the original with Super Shredder when I was a kid.
>>8774829we're still getting more neca stuff right?
>>8775793Yeah they're still doing their cartoon and movie line.Pretty maybe their next releases are Muckman and the Punk Frogs
>>8775609I feel bad for dudes who missed the second wave 1, there was almost no warning when they went up for preorder and were sold out in like an hour.
>>8775793Oh yeah, lots and lots more.
Are there any 2021 Playmates TMNT rumors, bros?
>>8775854Yeah that was weird, you'd expecting them to tweet about it before they went up not after.I wonder if they'll do another reissue once the factories open back up after CNY? From what I've heard is that the wave 1 issue was made while wave 2 was being produced as the factories still have the tooling.
Dr Stockman, I'm TMNT.
>>8775885Nope. Playmates is too busy rererererereleasing the same vintage figures in worse plastics each time.
>>8775972How bad will the upcoming set be? We talking shattering in your hands if you dare crack open the bubble dispay?
>>8775920What fucking kinda wizard still has the damn blimp part?
>>8776011Doubtful very good. Pixel Dan's review of the gamestop set really told me how little Playmates cares about what they're doing.
>>8775920>blimpI sense a based collection. Post it
>>8776025I wonder if they're still going with sickly green Raph and dark chocolate Don
>>8775920im surprised the blimp hasn't dryrotted away yet, must have been stored well
https://mobile.twitter.com/LightningFigPR/status/1360749515087761411Hasbro making TMNT now too...wtf.
>>8776853Those better be from the Next Mutation crossover.
>>8776869Nada. Sounds like the IDW comic event
>>8776853I'm glad I still have my old turtles. I don't think I could choose or afford all these different versions from just as many companies.
>>8776853Dude, this comic was fucking awesome. My guess is it'll be the turtles in their Ranger gear but I fucking loved their basic designs so here's hoping.
>>8776027>dark chocolate DonCareful now, I can only get so erect
>>8777027Been wanting Green Shredder Ranger since I saw that panel. Now it's almost here.
>>8777032He wasn't even a hint of green anymore in this box set
>>8777027why isnt Power rangers a cartoon? it'd be a lot better visually
>>8777263Toku stuff as a cartoon just doesn't work most of the time. It just ends up being worse superhero cartoons. The cheesy cheap special effects are part of what makes it entertaining.
>>8776853NOOO THE SLOPPY PAINT APPS, THE SHIT MOLDS NOOOO WHY WASN'T IT NECA!!!!
>>8776853Never heard of the series but I mean, if they're decently easy to find, I suspect this guy will be a fairly popular toy.
>>8777332The most heckin epic mash up of my two favorite cape rinos of all time : ()
>>8777332When are we getting Bebop and Rocksteady Bulk and Skull?
>>8777332Why is Shredder mashed up with the green ranger?
>>8777372>Why is Shredder mashed up with the green ranger?Apparently he stole the green ranger's power coin.
>>8777263Disney tried to get a cartoon, Toei wouldn't let themIt's heavily rumored Hasbro's gonna go through with it
>>8776853>>8777027What if this ends up being how we get the new most popular (and cheapest) toy version of April in the multi-company TMNT franchise?
>>8777027haven't red the comics is megazord in it?
NECA TMNT 2003 FOKING WHEEEEEN
>>8777609wow, it looks better than I thoughthope they make a animation movie like the tmnt vs batman
>>8777539>comics try to recreate 87 turtles style>april is flat as a board and covers her cleavagegod fuck today's comics lol
>>8777609They combine with metal head instead of the trex? Huh
>>8776853They highlighted this outright during a toy fair panel IIRC despite it being only in the comicsIt'll likely just be >Leonardo and Raphael>Mikey and Donatello All four as Rangers with Shredder also available individuallyThat last two pack might come with April but she's just a regular Pink Ranger without a skirt and I can't really think of who'd she come with aside from maybe Casey Jones or Karai who aren't morphed
>>8777688The T-Rex still has elements in itYou can see the Megazord's horns and those come from the T-Rex
>>8777609>>8777703This is some cringe ass shit.
>>8776853Guessing it's the power ranger ones? That's neat. More turtles the merrier.
>>8777703>April but she's just a regular Pink Ranger without a skirtYellow would have been better but I guess they didn't want to make one of the turtles pink.
>>8777758>Raph spent the leadup hanging with Trini>Leo with Jason>Donnie with Billy>Mikey with Zack>then they didn't become those rangersDid this bother anyone else?
Does anyone know if they release some different colored foot soldiers for the arcade set in stores? I really want the orange one.
>>8777758>>8778313They likely just wanted to have the Turtles be as closest as they are to their official colors to avoid confusionYellow is close to orangePurple has often been used to substitute black
>>8776853>https://mobile.twitter.com/LightningFigPR/status/1360749515087761411TMNT 2 packs PRG BLT PK ATMNT 2 packs PRG BLT PK BTMNt 2 packs PRG BLT PK CPRG BLT A SQD VenusPRG BLT A SQD JupiterPRG FAN Boom Shredder>>8777703>It'll likely just be>>Leonardo and Raphael>>Mikey and DonatelloWith Shredder being separate, (and I never read the comic so I don't know who venus and jupiter would be)... does Casey Jones appear in this series?Because alternatively, April could come with a little Megazord, or she comes with one of the turtles, and leo or raph comes with a bad guy ninja / putty henchman. I'm not sure they'd purposely create the april/ninja shelfwarmer.
Wtf my default bebop has no ears
>>8778758Oh shit, they're not loose in the box somewhere are they? You might need to contact whoever you ordered from and see if they can issue a replacement.
>>8778635No, only the purple came out. Any other colors will have to wait it seems.
>>8778680Venus and Jupiter are for SPD stuff going by the BLTPresumably A-SquadCasey Jones does show up in the comic but he doesn't morph
>>8778761I just checked the box for the 3rd time after your mention of it and see nothing and hear no rattlingI don't think any default head ears were includedI think it's kinda weird that both of em are missing tooAnd messing around with him nothing fell offI'm gunna contact bbts if they can't help I'll see if super7 atleast has some ears laying around
>>8778802Must have been a machine error in the factory. Hopefully BBTS keeps a few extras off the sales inventory for replacements.
>>8778758>>8778802Wow yeah that's a weird QC error, does it look like they broke off?
>>8778819From the deleted picture it doesn't even look like they made it in to begin with.
>>8778819>>8778826NoI don't even see anything that might be residual glue
>>8778875Pull the ears off the new head and put them on the superior pink face one
>>8778952Review videos never quite captured the majesty of his face correctly. It looks so much better in person.
>>8777703The last two pack will probably just be a pair of pic related
Never find the movie turtles in store.Search for months on end Never see them once Finally get them but pay twice as much.Splinter and shredded preorder comes up preorder it even though has insane DHL priced shipping for domestic shippingGo to walmart to pic up stuff for valentines Three fucking splinter and shredder two packs Are you fucking kidding me ?
>>8779897Wouldn't happen to be in Massachusetts would you? One of my nearby Walmarts has had three Splinter/Shredder two packs for a couple weeks now.
>>8780361"What ya thinkin about?""I dunno waiting for Krang to dispatch us and take over more dimensions"
>>8777609Does this at least put us closer to having a party wagon that transforms into a fucking robot for theTF crossover line? That would be better than this...
Searching the attic turned up these
>>8781146Isn't that Channel 6 News van kind of sought after?Awesome finds, anon.
>>8781146Yoo I had that Police Academy cop car when I was a kid
>>8781155Oh so that’s what it’s from I had no recollection of it but it apparently just missing it’s antennae
>>8781146Fuck you sell them to them to me.
>>8774863i'd forgotten they wrapped his cape around his waist like some kind of 'i shrugged off the shoulders of my yukata' look>>8774874mans is mans and apes is apes
>>8781329It has bendable wires in it so you can give him some sweet cape poses too.
>>8774895lack of toe bends and lack of differently posed hands is definitely strange on these. I guess some of them have other hands, but... I suppose it's because we've seen how bad toe bends can look sometimes, they can really disrupt the sculpt
>>8774905if it's on the box does that mean they can say you were fairly warned?>>8774906or is it proof they must have known
>>8781334There's enough loose joints on these Super7 figures, I'd rather not add another
>>8781336Or you're retarded and trying to make up reasons.
>>8781336I could believe someone like Randy would have just not known, he doesn't strike me as anal retentive enough to have personally overseen all of figures and photo shoots. It could be the result of just enough people feeling like it wasn't their place to bring it up. Maybe they'll release a replacement part with fixed paint or something in the future. Can the torso and legs be separated from the crotch safely?
>>8781397I'm just giving him the benefit of the doubt, incompetence is far more likely than malice
>>8781146>>8781149yeah that thing goes for a lot of money, especially with that exclusive April.
>>8777027why are crossovers allergic to using a FAMILIAR version of the TMNT people actually like?
>>8781397Fuck off troll
>>8777263tokusatsu is already a pragmatic way to adapt comicbook-style concepts. The helmets mean you can use stuntmen, so the handsome actors aren't taken out of commission constantly. If you're doing a cartoon you might as well do normal superheroes.
>>8777332>Serrations move right into the dragon teethyes.. this sparkles with me.>>8777347hahahaha my sides can't take this.
>>8777647flat is greatcovering is bad
>>8777703wtf those arent even the same masks from before, and they're somehow worse.
>>8778875in my day, shit like that was worth a lot of money. rare earless bebop!>>8778955does the brown face still transition to a pink snout like the original? I mean the idea is supposed to be he has pink skin but brown fur, yeah? so as it thins out..
>>8781444Space Police Department and Bacon Lettuce Tomato.
>>8781435yeah but if you use a familiar design you can sell new toys of old designs, which people will want even if they DON'T like the crossoverit's what transformers does with their 'evergreen' concept where like, the average schmoe has no idea what 'kingdom' or 'rise' or any of that shit means, but they see an optimus prime that looks vaguely like g1 and they buy.regular TMNT for crossovers should look vaguely mirage-toyline-'87-2003. white eyes, normal armbands and kneepads, normal fucking masks. after that, you have options.
>>8781446>does the brown face still transition to a pink snout like the original? I mean the idea is supposed to be he has pink skin but brown fur, yeah? so as it thins out..Yes, it's still brown on the outer face and transitions into pink.
>>8781472yeah that's the only one I'd care about. but it's neat they're acknowledging the old daysif they get to Ray Fillet will they just include three torsos?
>>8781482Monkeys paw: They release a separate figure for each variant taking up 3/4 of a wave.
>>8781499we got ray fillets for days n daysalso: at least one of the three variants changed color in water, right? would that have to be yet another variant? or did they change into one of the others
Why the FUCK doesn't Playmates rerelease the entire carded original line in stores? It would sell so quickly they couldn't keep them on the pegs. Kids love TMNT, adults love TMNT. It makes no sense that they haven't done this.
>>8781514There's 6 variants for Ray on FigureRealm, 3 of which with the colour change feature.
>>8781526They tried that at TRU
>>8781528How far did that line get?
>>8781527baffling. has anyone ever had an interview or something where they ask what happened there?
>>8781530The way some of these look, it almost feels like a miscolouration on some of them.
How do I get into collecting the Classic line? There's so much shit to wade through, even more than vintage MOTU it feels like. 99% of the figures I find at antique stores/comic stores are missing their accessories. Do most people just collect them without their accessories?
>>8781526I would pay good money to get the Sewer Spittin' Turtles again without having to pay $30 for each accessory separately. The old TMNT line deserves a repro line of weapons.
>>8781529Not far. As expected, no one ever saw the turtles in the wild but the pegs were covered in april and the occassional splinter for a million years.
>>8781529Not sure. I was just starting to dip back into collecting the last year TRU was open. I saw a couple base Leo and Rocksteady, and a bunch of the military themed turtles (I think mostly Don).
>>8781545Picking them up local in second hand stores can make getting the basic figure relatively cheap, but accessories are always harder to come by. Little kids lose shit alot. You can get a lot of them on ebay but people know that shit is in demand and charge accordingly.
>>8781551I've been into 4 antique stores over this weekend and it's crazy how many figures I can get for cheap that don't have any accessories. They're on average around $7 per figure which is nuts. I picked up around 10 figures and the only one that had a weapon was mutagen man who I paid $10 for. I love how colorful the line is.
>>8781551I remember cleaning up my floor from my '92-'93 room as we prepared to move out, and filling up a whole gallon ice cream bucket with tmnt weapons. Those suckers just ESCAPED.
>>8781556i guess that's what comes from that combination of>they made fucking millions of them>but they also sold millionstheyre not rare, they're just rare unused
>>8781557It's always a wild feeling looking back on figures I had as a kid online and seeing the accessories I lost in the first few days.
>>8781561I know I mentioned it last thread but it weirds me otu seeing a complete samurai leo with the seemingly colorclashing red armor pieces.
>>8781545>Do most people just collect them without their accessories?Mostly, yeah. If you're a hardcore purist, you'll buy them on ebay or something for a premium with accessories, or you'll buy them for even more money to get them "mint in box", which you secretly know means you're just making sure the accessories come with it for when you open it.
>>8781587also I have to imagine that, by this point, the old rubber belts / water reservoirs on the spitting ones / entire bodies on the movie figures are starting to decay/harden/powder/melt
>>8781561It’s so nuts. What the fuck was wrong with my little ass? I must have been a fucking neanerthal. If it was an accessory or a Mighty Max miniature I lost that shit forever within 5 minutes of opening the box
>>8781612It's just a thing with little kids, that stuff isn't important to them yet. Plus their spacial awareness is garbage.
>>8781640my toys were worth everything to me, they were teh preciousbut yeah I recall I had trouble forcing weapons into hands sometimes. and if they didnt have some kind of storage, i mean, shit was gonna fall out. I had a fucking -toybox- back then, and parents were sticklers about cleanup, so.. in the box it went. I only just finally cleaned that toybox out about 9 years ago, it was.. pretty nuts in there. a lot of mysterious balls of wadded hair.
>>8781654At least your little brother wasn't pissing in it. That ruined a lot of toys for me.
>>8781688aw maaan that would suck. I mean yeah it washes off, but when it's old it's all sticky and awful, and presumably gets into all the crevices..my little sister did break my stuff on the reg though
>>8781545>>8781587Its a shame so many TMNT accessories are lost to time because there were so so many of them, and eery single fuckin one, no matter how small or inane, hd some playmates intern write up a name and descriptions for it on the package.
>>8781729yeah they may have skimped on paint (especially for the many miniature sidekick pals) but they sure didn't fuck you on quantity. No wonder they got lost, it was physically impossible to hold even half of their shit unless it was Casey Jones with his golf bag (the movie figure can't store everything in the bag at once, making me want to check again and see how much he was toting at once in the movie). It was certainly neat how the original sprues could double as weapon racks, but.. it's not as if they could stand up neatly on a shelf, even if you HAD a shelf.and the belts were held on with pure rubber tension from a tiny little nub, so
>>8781745Movie Casey can store everything except the hockey stick, but I think it's too long for the bag anyway. The weapon racks were a wonderful cost saving measure which is one of the reasons why they could just jam pack the figures with extra stuff, brilliant decision on Playmates part.
Anyone's 7-inch scale movie accessory packs come in yet?
>>8781766I don't think they're shipping yet. I STILL haven't received my Super Shredder, the tracking shows it hasn't even gotten to the carrier yet and it allegedfly went out on Feb 2.
>>8781771oh I thought they were shipping out with casey and raphit's been a fucking weird year I tell you. In a bunch of different collectors' lines, people are pre-ordering from a variety of sites and seeing results months and months apart from each other.
>>8781766Mine hasn’t shipped. Neither has my toon diorama for that matter.
>>8781329Dude just wants to show off his workout routine
>>8781883oooh toon diorama? show me something
>>8781766How much were those? I missed the boat and now I’m eyeing re-seller prices of over 200 dollars
>>8781949momentai, the prices before the shit has actually arrived are meaningless.. once they start rolling in, you'll see what the cost actually will bei forget what they cost straight from neca, someone in the thread said it once. it was maybe 25-35 bucks
>>8781149what's so special about the news van?
>>8781992its pretty uncommon
>>8777032>>8777168I kind of always Donnie being brownish.It's reissue Raph not being lime green that really bugs me. Why is he never lime green any more?
>>8782174he's rarely LIME green in the sense of electric green, but the old toys were mostly a green that you could easily compare to a lime peel (though limes vary a lot) definitely not this.. 'greasy soap' green.and donatello's always been brown, but it seems they shifted him a bit too red. more chocolate, less poop than he used to be.
>>8781482Maybe they'll do what Mattel did with MotU Classics and have a fan vote of which colour is made.>>8781745Yeah even on he new ones the stands are hard to stand up and keep standing, I think I need to stick them down if I want to display them like that.
EE shipped my version 2 Raph, let's see if that 15 dollar shipping was worth it.Probably not, I hate USPS. Last package via them from gamestop took a month.
>>8781968Accessory pack was $50.
>>8782459Can get a figure of the same size shipped from japan by DHL for around 13-15 bucksDomestic shipping by USPS who at the moment don't have the best track record for reliability and speed for 15 bucks .... called "Super Saver" lol wut?
Turtles disguise 4 packhttps://twitter.com/NECA_TOYS/status/1361723757342175233?s=20
>>8782459The unusual cold weather from Global Warming is going to slow everything down too.
>>8782954Those human masks have always freaked me out.
>>8782954>necaLmaoooo no fucking thanks
>>8782954Huh, I thought they'd do two two packs.>>8783008Same
>>8783052Nah in the Fwoosh interview it’s confirmed four pack, the frogs will be two 2 packs, released with some time in between them (probably ace duck) and chrome dome is absolutely massive compared to even android krang
>>8783065Ah neat, I didn't watch the interview since I don't buy the toon turtles.It looks like a good set for people missing them, a few times I've seen people in here talk about how they're struggling to get the turtles.
>>8782954Cloth, so I guess I will be buying this in the hopes they are fully painted underneath and I can just tear their costumes off.
>>8783076They are normal underneath, giving collectors another chance at the animated version of the turtles but with cool accessories and the swappable head pieces.
>>8783084Hopefully this is going to be a neca shop preorder because there is simply no way target is ordering more than a few of these per store with a $100+ price tag.
>>8782210He was always kind of a medium brown mixed with olive green, still a green but distinct. The rerelease was just straight brown, no green in sight. Raph just looked sick.
>>8782954Far out dude, you get Michaelangelos Weird Pizza cap.
>>8782954I probably grab this just for alt heads. Then resell or recolor my turtles. I'm always wanted 1/12 turtles with different skin colors but Super7 ones is to tall for my collection.
>>8782954It kinda bothers me that the coat and hat aren't the same colours but not enough to deter me
>>8783164Looks like different shades to me on the show neca is still king
>>8783198Oh yeah it's accurate but still bothers me.
I wonder if theyll do the lime green version of these disguised turtles.I like the brighter green better, as their dark green "toon accurate" turtles are too dark.
>>8783233No way. That's not to say you couldn't put the coats on those figures, but this is definitely a "catch up" for folks, I can't see them doing the alt colors again so soon.
>>8782614that's kind of a lot for what you get
>>8782459>>8782621post office is complete pants.>>8782954ah neat. I just recently saw chinese bootleg knockoffs of raph's trenchcoat and hat, with appropriate pants added, that fit these toon figures, and I was like 'neat. that's what bootlegging is for'>>8782960haha yeah they will never admit their nonsense has never added up
>>8783144>still a greenI would say the original was definitely brown-brown, but looking again, I can see how you'd call that 'still green' I mean... color labels are super subjective
>>8783226I feel like trenchcoats are usually this very light canvas while fedora hats are typically much darker brown... and yet, you have a point, a lot of cartoon characters wearing that outfit, it matches. Inspector Gadget, Zenigata, etc. They somehow got really light hats to go with their coats.
>>8783344No, it's the right amount
>>8783354I dunno remind me again? I recall four great new heads, some fun items, a TV...
>>8783352Yeah it depends but normally the hat is darker than the coat.I think the issue I'm having is is that the cost is too light, like if it was a darker color but not exactly the hat color my mind would go "this is fine".This is all just personal autism anyway, I don't expect it to bother anyone else.
>>8782954Wait what the fuck yet another shade of green for these toon turtles? I was hoping it would be the same shade on the previously released hero/villain 2pack ones. Or the SDCC set. Is this another shade or am I just tripping?
>>8783360alright, with the mini turts, 50 bucks does start to make sense. I rescind my objection
>>8783365Isn't it the same colour as the SDCC box set?
>>8783367Yeah I was sold on it because of the baby turtles and the pizza box + pork rinds bag. That scene in the movie where they're watching Leo and Raph fight just tickles me pink.
>>8783360>New York's Most>Italic 0 Pizza>Managed to get the rights to real Turtle Wax
>>8783369I don't think they are? It could just be the lighting, but the sdcc ones look more olive while the disguise ones look more popeye spinach green
>>8783371that really was a good scenei wish I could find someone who absolutely doesnt care about the heads and would just sell me those
>>8783384I'm sure they'll crop up on ebay for $20 a head after it's released
>>8783377I doubt the rights to turtle wax is that much, if anything this is free advertising for them.
>>8783365It's the same color from the first releases.
>>8783381>your shell's too thick to put pants around because it's '87 and the balloon-waist sweatpant isn't easy to find in every clothing store yet>you have to uncomfortably wear pants around your upper thighsthe turtles invented sagging!
>>8783505The sdcc and the first release are the same color
>>8783540boy trying to compare and contrast these two.. it reminds me of when I was trying to see if there were any non-bootleg movie figs on ebay or ammerzons, and looking at comparison videos.. it's really hard to tell. the bootlegs lack the upper body articulation, but you can't see that easily.. they also lack the thigh spots but those aren't easy to see.. and then I realized they just used stock footage so feh
>>8782954>The Hare and The TortoiseUsagi Yojimbo confirmed.
>>8783633>Not Hokum Hare
>>8782954holy shit that's the pizza from the theme song..
>>8783648>holy shit that's the pizza from the theme song..
>>8783381It’s clearly the lighting. They’re the samecolor.
>>8783698In that case, greatI wonder if anyone would buy the entire set with no turtle heads..
>>8783682yeah that was basically my reaction!this whole line has me feeling seven again
>>8783707at a large discount maybe. people who wanted just the outfits without the new heads, and who want to quickly alternate between costume and naked without taking the time to remove those clothesi assume you mean you want the alt heads and that's it, you could leave them the normal heads.
>>8783377NECA asked turtle Wax and they gave the rights for free since it's good advertising.
>>8783711I don't know I kind of like the idea of mutant turtles walking around wearing apparently realistic/convincing human flesh masksJkSo what do you think; half price, or can I get 60%?
>>8783707Heads were one of the main reasons I got it, donnie looks so dour in the normal release.
>>8782954>the iconic mean mug faces are missingI'm so glad I managed to grab the wave 1 two-packs. If I hadn't I'd be pretty fucking pissed. Alternate hands is a really welcome addition though.
>>8783715i know i'd buy it just for the lulz if i had a car and the kind of discretionary income after paying for the car to make it shinythat would probably mean i no longer lived in a neighborhood where 'people can see your car' = 'your catalytic converter is getting stolen'
>>8783718oh i forgot to factor the masks in thereprobably closer to 40% but I mean, you'll have to see. this is why internet is so great, the communication.. there's always someone out there who wants the thing you don't want. the great river of wealth..
>>8783708Me too, fren. TMNT was my only passion collecting as a kid and I couldn’t hold myself back once NECA and S7 picked up the licenses.
>>8781146Yo look up that news 6 van on eBay. You struck gold anon
wave 3 shipping when?
>>8784387i forget, why did metalhead have a T on his belt?and what did 'metalhead michelangelo' have? I had that figure I think, but when I look up pictures it doesn't look like the one I remember.
>>8784403turtle, i'm guessing? warrior metalhead michaelangelo also had the "t"
>>8784387>super 7No thanks, I like quality plastic.
>>8784424god 'warriors' was so fucking weird. they just picked molds at fucking random.. or was it just 'these guys held vac metal in the past, they can handle some more, yeah?'
>>8784445hahah yeah, i think that was the common denominator. winged warriors had vac metal too
>>8784451I was referring to playmates
>>8784387Wont be until after CNY at least.
>>8784387I think it's not set to release until Q2, so April at the earliest.
>>8784387This wave is so good, first one I'm going to get all 4(as long as revised april looks better).
>>8785552Who did you skip in the previous 2 waves? I'm guessing Baxter and Mutagen Man?
>>8785552You think we'll get an alt head for Rocksteady without the helmet? Or will the helmet just be removable?
>>8785558Got Raph and Baxter re-release and picked up Leo and Bebop from wave 2.The shredder and splinter toys are too goofy, line is too expensive for army builders and mutagen man I never had as a kid so I don't have much attachment to(non functioning gimmick is disappointing too)
>>8785552I'm going to end up completing all four waves. I'm hoping I won't find variant turtles tempting from here on out.
>>8785660Same, I was never really attached to the costumed turtles as a kid and hope my opinion won’t change with these updates, don’t really wanna go down the completionist rabbit hole.
>>8785660I plan to just get samurai leo and detective don if they happen, hopefully I don't fall into the mindset of "well I already have half the team I might as well get the other two".
>>8774874dis sheeit da foocher, whyboi
>>8785529ey man if you can't take April at her earliest you don't deserve April at her peak
>>8785654shredhead looks pretty cool to me. it's neat seeing him standing up straight
>>8785562Hard to say. I'm guessing the helmet comes off (cheaper than a whole new head) but the original toy had his helmet molded on, so it might be stuck on there in the remake too.
>>8785696>hopefully I don't fall into the mindset of "well I already have half the team I might as well get the other two"The turtles are the only team I've ever had that mindset get the better of me.Hopefully I too don't fall for it again once I have Donnie (as a Metalhead companion) and Samurai Leo (as a Usagi companion).
>>8785696>>8786021things like pokémon cards taught me "completion is unfeasible, find an attainable collection goal"sometimes i just get my favorites, sometimes I get "At least one of each guy" so if I miss one version of a character, no worries, another will do.
>>8781571same here anon, my samurai leo was a hand me down, so i had no clue he came with all these accessories when i bought him again later as an adult. i like the red though, very bold.
>>8781771damn, that sucks to hear i hope you get SS soon.>>8781776i believe accessory set, dioramas, and toon B&R arent due to ship till Q2 of 2021, so earliest is march, latest is may.
>>8783236yea i didnt think so either, i do really like those alt heads..but i dunno if i wanna spend the money on another set of turts, ill wait and see.>>8783238absolutely
>>8786129It hasn't had 1 tracking update, I'm pretty sure they lost it at this point. Customer service just told me to fuck off when I asked.
>>8786129any pics of dioramas?>>8786136sometimes you're punished for waiting, sometimes rewarded.. this is the hobby we chose. things sure are different since 'wait til you're headed to a store and you get one figure because dad loves you'>>8786138you hold a lot of power here, you can go over their heads and report that, you can give them terrible reviews, you can demand a refund.. this is the right situation for that.
>>8784403perhaps there were going to call him techno turtle, but changed their mind after the mold was already made.
>>8786499i could see that
>>8786182>this is the right situation for thatTo act like a spoiled brat? You're a complete moron.
>>8786182I don't want a refund, I just want the damned Shredder.
>>8786577asking for basic courtesy and helpfulness from customer service is reasonable.>>8786585I'd feel the same in your place.. especially since there's no alternatives
>>8786651I think you may be taking the "told me to fuck off" part a little too literally.
>>8786651You're a crazy person
God damn. At Target today, they had at least a dozen Splinter Baxter two packs. I've never seen the Turtles or B&R, but this pack was fully stocked in the Neca section AND an end cap in the actual toy section.
>>8786698Let me guess, they were also less than 100 bucks each?
>>8786710They were at Target, so yes.Like, why is THIS the set to get this sort of stock? Feels an awful lot like seeing all these ps5 controllers sitting in stores and no systems being available.God, I hope if there isn't a preorder for the four pack, they're as prevalent as Splinter.
>>8786666unless that means "told me to wait patiently" then I think complaint is still a valid concept
>>87867702 weeks and the carrier tracking showing the item hasn't even left NECAs warehouse, I think more effort than writing it off is warranted
>>8786698Feels like this >>8779897
>>8786805You realize there's tons of weather delays right?
>>8786815No, because I live in a country where a centimetre of snow doesn't shut down the whole state.
>>8786805i would be more likely to chalk that up to the carrier than neca. sometimes they just don't update you. then one day shit just appears.
>>8786829It wasn't an issue with Tokka and Razar, there were several updates almost every day. Same carrier as far as I know.
>>8786827You're a foreigner? Of course it takes longer. Jesus.
>>8786844It takes 2 weeks to leave the warehouse? That's normal for you people?
>non americansThread ruined
>>8786721There is no way they will be simply based on the price the 4 pack will cost. A store will order twice as many of something that costs half the price because it’s easier to move. This 4 pack will be an absolute shitshow, no question.
>>8786873Is there confirmation that the disguise 4 pack is coming to retail?
>>8786138shit man, sorry to hear that, but dont give up, keep bugging them, dont let them bullshit you like that.>>8786182heres the toon diorama they had up for preorder.and yea, how many times i told myself to wait on impulsively buying something, to wait for a deal or to simply mull over the purchase, and then lose out on a figure. so sad. but im not a rich guy so I accept that im gonna probably miss out on some things. these turtles, i dont think ill be too sad to not have em, i do really like the interchangeable parts of the head, and thats the big draw for me. like i said, i prefer lime turtles over spinach green ones though.
>>8786721yea same here, i saw S&B and tragg and granitor at my local target too. i ended up getting them online before seeing S&B in person though. it was a real shock.i know this sounds weird. but i think its because normies dont think splinter or baxter are cool, and that their height makes them too much like a kids toy (as if toon splinter or baxter would be as tall as a turtle.) it also explains seeing tragg and granitor, they arent really cool looking to the average person.
>>8786850again, it's probably the carrier. god knows what weird shit is happening in your country, maybe monkeys got in
>>8786881not bad, looks just like the old backgrounds. also just a good shelf. how much is that? i imagine theyll do one for the sewer lair too.. with that famous background sign that just says 'animation'
>>8786996They preordered for $150, I imagine they will go for a lot more on the secondary market.
>>8787021that's kind of a lot for some nice painted shelves. is there something I'm missing?
>>8787340They've released several versions of the street diorama now. The first one was with the SDCC movie Turtle set. They released one with a different paint deco later as a regular release item. I got it for Christmas in 2019 and I love it. I use it all the time. The most recent version is the toon version that was posted earlier. I'm sure they'll continue to use the molding for it and make more variants. I wanna say the regular release was $99. I got it from my brother who in turn got it from BBTS.
>>8787340It's modular, it's huge and deep and allows for lots of display options.
>>8787762I wish they'd release an "expansion set" for the diorama that added more options for the walls.I'd like a broken wall so we can have a figure crashing out from inside the build or maybe just a normal opening door so they can walk in/out
>>8787773The toon version had some other additions the first two versions didn't and with the TMNT accessory pack, I can only hope NECA does something like this. They'd need to release 3 different versions of risk screwing over the people that have the exclusive diorama sets.
>>8787773I think they intend to at some point. I'd buy a set with a dumpster in it or things like that.
>>8786805>>8786829This. If it's USPS they said waiting for pickup for a month from gamestop than one day it was here.
>>8781992Later in the lines life, not a popular item when released. I don't want to say it's "rare" because false scarcity is a thing, but it surely was not produce in high numbers like the original party wagon. It's safe to say it did not make it to a lot of homes. A big thing with after market second hand toys, is they get sold when people know what they are. Every one knows the ninja turtles. At flea markets and such, it's just a big van toy.
>>8787767oh okay, it doesn't look very big. if it's huge and deep, then >>8787762 yeah 99 sounds reasonable.>>8787773this makes me think about when I was a kid and I spontaneously decided to just take a big piece of cardstock and paint a bunch of buildings on it, using cut out paper to make little opening doors, and then drew and cut out every character I could think of and made them populate the scene.. I think it was the last day of 1st grade, when they stopped even pretending they were anything but daycare and just said 'meh do whatever'
>>8787863i find it amusing they recycled the turtle van mold in a way that's pretty obvious but still did a good job of hiding it.. and makes sense since the channel 6 van is what the turtle van was made of in the first place (But in the cartoon donny did some fucking wizardry there)
Did I do good? Or did I fuck up?
Sup fellas, where would be the best spot to sell these? I have a few blue weapons/things for warrior bebop.
>>8788675Actually the turtle van used to be a generic white van that they took from Baxter before he got arrested.
>>8788866ohh that's right. but April was there with them, which wasn't super common.>>8788804depends, are those canadollars or the real thing?Naw considering the difficulty in acquiring a lot of these, that's not too bad. though didn't the splinter-shredder 2pack just go back on preorder (has that ended already?)?
>>8788838ebay I think. man the raphael one of those was like one of my last turtle figures, power rangers really started taking priority at that point. I also got one of the 'super turtles' from the anime and I think that was it.
>>8788811Ebgames>>8788871They are Moose bucks.
Any hint as to what is going to be in the next NECA loot boxes for TMNT? I missed the last ones but think I will get these no matter what anyway.
>>8776018>>8776026>>8776069Sadly it's pretty much packed away as I redo the basement. Tearing up the rug. Clearing some mold in a corner from a burst pipe and cracks from the stairs. I think I took this photo back when I repacked some of them in better boxes. Thankfully none of it got wet. I had two cases of figures. A few years ago I found two more at a thrift store for less then ten bucks. They were missing the inner plastic so I just used them for vehicles. Though I actually have original boxes for some of them too. I even put the Technodrome and Sewer playset back in the original boxes and into an indoor storage unit.
>>8788934Though going through some old photos, i found this pic I made for a Christmas thread a decade ago.
>>8788945Oh and around that time I also found a box with all the boxes for all my old NES games.
>>8788908In that case, not bad!! You did well given the situation and scarcity.
>>8788949Looking for more Turtle stuff in old photos. I did find a pic of an old board game.
>>8788945ah yeah, the all-leonardo nativity is a christmas tradition!so... where the fuck is that tiny leonardo in a stroller from?
Oh and I found a Japanese doujin (a non-porn one) with the Turtles dressing as maids.>>8788968It's actually a fridge magnet in Krang's walker with Shredder's cape.
>>8788961Thanks anonis the toon bebop and rocksteady 2 pack scarce? They had that as well. They would be my only Toon figures besides Casey and April. (Never could find the toon turtles).
>>8788985holy shit, so it is.
>>8789041I don't know, don't follow the toon line, but... I thought it wasn't out yet? I swear in the last thread someone was like "coming soon: toon bebop and rocksteady 2-pack"
>>8789435It's been out severl times, they keep making more and restocking. What you read was about the online preorder they took.
>>8789442ah, got it. thanks for the clarific8
>>8782954Is this actually supposed to come with the turtles ?
Finally got my Umtinates wave 2 today, gonna let them warm up to room temperature before I start messing with them though since it was cold today.
>>8790882Yeah give some of those joints a blast for a few seconds from a hair dryer. Leo had some uncomfortably sticky ankles for me. Also good luck getting Bebop to hold that fucking shield.
>>8790888Same, had to heat up every joint on wave 2.
>>8790888Yeah I probably will, though I should probably get a hairdryer to make it easier.>Also good luck getting Bebop to hold that fucking shield.I'll sure try but just looking at the hand I can already tell it'll be hard.How hard is it to get Mutagen Man to hold his gun?
>>8790932I had to make Bebops hand real soft to make it work, taking it out was really easy though. Haven't received my Mutagen Man yet.
>>8788985I could have lived the rest of my days not knowing this existed....
>>8782210I really don't give a flying fuck what very specific nuanced title that shade of green is and never will. I just want to know why it was the wrong color in all subsequent remakes.
Having numerous orders from Ebgames cancelled on me before, it feels nice to have something from there ship. Most of you probably have these by now, but I'm super excited
>>8792112well, by correcting you, I'm helping you discuss that important topic more clearly in the future, with less confusion.
>>8788985Scan it you fucker. That’s lost media and needs to be shared
Anyone else notice how nice it's been since Crimson Commander has been gone? None shitposting he claimed he wasn't associated with is happening. Really gets the noggin jogging.
>>8790882>>8790932Update: Went better than expected.I let them warm up to room temp over the night and during the day as I did other stuff and they were all mostly fine.Shredder and Mutagen Man had no stiff joints, only Bebop's elbows were stiff and for Leo it was just his left elbow and left knee and some hot water fixed that easy.Also I have no idea how to get that shield in Bebops hand, I'm gonna have to heat the hand up a lot to do it, they really should have made the handle a peg imo.
>>8792989Yeah his hand has way too tight a grip for a handle that small. The handle should have just popped off or something.
>>8792999Mint in box collectors don’t have to worry about those woes. Join us.
>>8793008I prefer to play with my toys but you do you
>>8792999Yeah, I get wanting to do the vintage accessory exactly but chanting it a bit would have been better and it's a shame Rocksteady will most likely have the same issue.Anyway that aside I'm mostly happy with wave 2, they're all really nice looking, especially Bebop and MM, they're sculpts are great.Also nice trips.
>>8792172nothing you are saying is helping anyone or anything, it did not even address the actual question. You re just spitting out meaningless word soup in some weird effort to pretend you are smart somehow. when all you did was proudly declare autism to a creepy level.Get help
>>8793042Rocksteady's shield had a nice cylindrical peg in back. Being a SEWER LID (Fucker must have been strong), they had to just weld a handle onto it.Bebop's trash can lid shield (lazy piece of shit, that won't stop much) had to use a trash can lid -handle- which are flat and basically meant for fingertips and thumb to gently slide under, or else a flattened hand. It's an unsuitable and uncomfortable grip for trying to present the lid forward as a shield.. especially for big meaty mutant warthog fingers. So that's their problem.
So anybody get any of the "Variants" re-issues of Wave 1 Ultimates yet?Curious to see if the QC on Raph and the Foot Soldiers are better this go around. And what the actually "variation" is in the weapons.
>>8793764it seems to be realllly slight modification of the shade of brown of the weaps
I got a Ratking 2 pack. crotch of vernon blown out. Anyone else notice this issue or is this just me?
>>8793983my movie Casey has that seam slightly open, i was able to just push it back together. the thighs are still slightly loose, but no problem.
>>8793998It doesn't really want to close. I don't want to glue it. So I am just going to let it be.
>>8794035agh sorry to hear that. I would definitely glue it if the hips felt wobbly, and if they feel fine then yeah I'd leave it alone.
Between Super7 and NECA, looks like the turtle train ain't stopping anytime soon.
>>8794914Jesus, is that number counting rereleases? Unless they're going to start doing 2003 or Next Mutation stuff I don't see how they're going to reach that number.
>>8795150between all the typical delays and 'the factory's fault', we'll get 25 at most
>>8795228That sounds like a more reasonable number, maybe the 50+ is just planned stuff rather than things they know for sure that'll come out.
>>8793764I'm still pissed I missed out on that. Why the hell did they tweet about them hours AFTER they went up? Fucking bullshit.And they're really cutting it close on revealing what the new April looks like before release. I don't want to pull the trigger until I know for sure I actually want her.
>>8795228Thank you for showing what an idiot you are.
>>8795464Yeah the announcement time was stupid but I don't think those will be the last reissues of wave 1 since Thundercats is getting reissues of its 1st and 2nd waves.>And they're really cutting it close on revealing what the new April looks like before release.Yeah and the longer they wait the bigger the reaction is gonna be since people have big expectations.I'm planning to abandon this place for awhile because we all know how it's going to be.
Saw these today and about shit myself. I know it’s a retarded price, but is this a fair price? I can’t even find listings for it anywhere.
>>8795589There is one listing on ebay right now for one that's $480 but there is no box.
>>8793764Waiting for EEs 15 dollars for one fig "Super Saver" shipping to drag it's ass here.
>>8794914Is that the number of different characters, or the total number of individual toys they're planning on distributing to every target in the US? (Zing). Serious note though... who the fuck is left? 50 different toys? There must be a lot of overlap in there, like repaints and stuff. I'm hard pressed to think of stuff that hasn't been done yet.
>>8795464>Why the hell did they tweet about them hours AFTER they went up? Fucking bullshit.>>8795584>I don't think those will be the last reissues of wave 1 since Thundercats is getting reissues of its 1st and 2nd waves.I mean, for what it's worth, the company seems to have learned from their mistake quickly and are more open to announcing the typical month-long window moving forward.
>>8795464I only caught it because I randomly checked BBTS and saw them on the front page, and ralph was still already sold out. Had to get mine from EE.
>>8795589you couldn't pay me to take a troll doll off your hands.doesn't even have a tummy crystal, the only okay part of trolls.
