    I don't mind the take on April for the new toon. At least she won't always be a damsel in distress.

    Having her as kind of the spiritual "Fifth Turtle" and training with them is a nice change to things.

    And the whole Donny/April thing has been in a lot of canons. Including the previous cartoon series.

    IIRC, Donny has only been a good friend to April, not in love with her.

    Kylo Ren - came from Space Brooklyn, although he moved to Space Williamsburg before it was trendy.

    Rocksteady and Bebop have been confirmed for Wave 2 of TMNT Classics.

    TNI also says that Playmates has confirmed that they'll be the only new figures in Wave 2:
    Update: Playmates has confirmed for us that wave 2 will only include the two figures of Rocksteady and Bebop, so I guess we will have to wait a little longer for Shredder and any others. Playmates also confirmed for us that we will get a look at both Rocksteady and Bebop at Toy Fair next month, so stay tuned.
    Playmates.Com also has updated the TMNT page with silhouettes of the two new figures. Woot!

    They overbuilt Rocksteady IMO, those shoulders and arms are too big, and his head is way too big.


    I didn't realize TMNT was a LEGO line now, spotted 4 sets at Target.

    You mean overbuilt Bebop? And his head was rather oversized on the original toy as well.

    Here's some more pics from MTV Geek. Including some decent side pics of the Gruesome Twosome.

    Yeah, I did mean Bebop. Been a while. The original toy's head wasn't this big, compare it to the size of the torso on that figure, while here this head is bigger than its torso; they're using the inflated arm proportions to justify the larger head IMO.

    My son received the four movie Turtles figures and their Assault Van.

    In a nutshell, I know the manufacturers unfortunately tend to cheap out on movie merchandise, but this is freakin' ridiculous. The figures are rubbery, the articulation makes no sense, and the detail is nonexistent. (I actually am, it seems, the only person on Earth who thinks the Turtles actually look pretty cool in the movie, even if I have no desire to spend a penny to see any Michael Bay [strike]movie[/strike] flaming turd. But the figures really don't even try to capture the look.) The van is especially bad, with horrible quality plastic, decals that make Hasbro look like amateurs, and action features that go off with the slightest provocation and I'm convinced could kill a grown man at thirty meters.

    My father-in-law spent probably $80 on all this, not counting shipping. He could've almost have gotten the whole damn Guardians of the Galaxy BAF Groot wave for that. (And no way in hell am I letting either of my kids watch any Michael Bay movie based on a classic toy or comic, because I'm not quite ready to explain unfunny masturbation and nut jokes.)
    That's my jacket!

    Not Playmates, but still TMNT figures:

    Based on the prototype images, I love these! I've always wanted to see high quality figures based on the original comic book designs, not the cartoons or movies, and the fact that they each include alternate heads with all red bandanas makes my inner comic book purist jump for joy. $150 each makes them pretty steep, but I'd still consider buying all four. However, I'll likely get Michelangelo first and if he turns out to be a disappointment for some reason, then I won't bother to get the rest.

    1:6th scale at $150 with those joint designs is an outrage. That's good sculpting and a design for a 1:12th, but a 1:6th is just greedy there.
