I donít see either happening, and Playmates collector figures just arenít good.
The cartoon based turtle figures werenít too bad with the exception of Donatelloís eyes. Bebop and Rocksteady were hot trash. Even for taking a new artistic approach, the undersizing compared to the turtles was such a waste.

Movie line- garbage

playmates should retry those collector turtles that came with 4 different heads and give u shredder and splinter. lol. they shouldnt have made those figures walmart exclusive.
No and no. As much as Iíd love more movie based TMNT figures, Playmates demonstrates time and again that they canít handle the license correctly. Heck even Megabloks weíre giving us better classic turtles than Playmates.

As for store exclusives, Iím just not a fan. Iím not ina. Heavily populated area so some store exclusives skip this area. It makes collecting more retry boring for me

So you would take nothing over something that isnt 100% accurate? Granted yes, they were movie turtles not classic, and the classics we did get were too big to go with anything else, but the walmart exclusive line could have been great if it kept going. I definately dont count the crossover figures.

Actually yes, Iíd rather Playmates not mess around with collector-aimed figures. Accuracy and quality should be the driving factors for collector lines. playmates doesnít have a clue on what to do with either of those. Stick to the little kids toys with lack of paint. Let NECA handle the rest

see, i think neca is a waste of money. every neca thing ive ever had broke. but i guess its a moot point. we wont get a decent 1:12 scale shredder and playmates probably wont ever make quality figures. the turtles line started out decent, but the first set o turtles was about all they did well. everything elese was completely out of scale or horribl articulation or as you sad, lousy paint.

You arenít the first person Iíve heard of having figures that break. It makes me curious now as to what the companyís policy is (if any) on returns/ exchanges.

At SDCC we are supposed to see reveals for the 1:4 Movie Shredder and Foot Soldier. Nothing has been promised but its hard to dismiss that if NECA can scale down the 1:4 turtles that it could be done again with villain characters. Doesnít solve our Splinter issue but baby-steps I guess

I've heard lots of stories about NECA product breaking in the past, but not recently. Personally, I've only ever had one NECA breakage, and it was a minor one. I bought the Shinobi figure (whenever that was, must have been at least 7-8 years ago), and the sword partially broke inside the sheath on his back. It lost probably about 3/4 of an inch, and honestly still doesn't look too bad at its current length. But, yeah, apart from that, I've not had a problem with NECA, and I buy a fair amount of their figures. Their stuff is certainly infinitely superior to anything Playmates has ever put out.

The Turtles have been pretty solid figures since the beginning. I've had all their sets and still have the red bandanna 4 pack and black and white 4 pack along with the 1/4... the others I've sold off.

While their joints are tight, I'm not going to be playing around with them either. I've heard stories of people's 1/4 falling and breaking, but mine are still standing on the shelf... and I can make them stand outside well... I mean, these positions are exactly how they are inside.




Now other lines? I've heard plenty of stories of breakage... but the Turtles have seemed pretty solid.

OK so it says they created a label on the 26th however itís the first and it still hasnít even been shipped yet. Didnít they do this crap last year were a lot of people ended up having to have a second label created because they never sent them out?

same thing is happening to me. I got an email from ups saying it was being delivered tomorrow (27th), but when I checked the tracking, the label was only created

and now I checked my order status and it says fulfilled even tho the tracking says "label created"... what gives

That would be awesome if that's what it is, though I can't help but notice that 1) $22.99 is pretty reasonable for a NECA figure. Perhaps a bit too reasonable to be a NECA figure? and 2) it says "5 Results Found" but there's only 4 items listed.

Thats just GameStop pricing. They do that with Marvel Legends and some other collectibles too. So the retail price is $19.99. I think TrU was charging $19.99-24.99 for the basic NECA figs before. If it is the individual SDCC movie turtles, I wouldn't expect much for accessories at $19.99. Probably just the figure and weapons.
