Definitely excited about these figures. Personally, I think Raph looks the best. Of course that could be bias because he is my favorite of the mean green fighting machines.

These look great. The necks look pretty long, but I never followed the original comics, so I dunno maybe that's accurate. Mike's my favorite turtle, but man he looks kinda crazy and not in a good way, like he's off his rocker.

The long necks are comic book accurate. These figures are perfect. I want them. I just need to find out when and where I will be picking these up, or if I'm going to have to order them online.

In the comics, all 4 of them wore(and still wear) red bandanas.

I'm waiting to see what accessories are included in the boxset. I hope Don comes with the arm cannon in Donatello#1.

I'd love to see figures of them based off Jim Lawson's artwork.

Based on the comics. All 4 Turtles wear red bandanas.

And for those who don't know and think the turtles look odd (long necks etc...) this is the art these are based from:

This is the cover of issue #1 (and on a side note a parody of Frank Miller's Ronin.)

These definitely look excellent!

I can't wait to see what the other series will have to offer.

NECA is really doing a great job with all their licenses!

Whats the cost on these bad boys? They look great, would be kinda cool if they did a chase/variant set with the cartoon colors.....though I'm not sure how many people would really want the cartoon colors since the figures are done in their original comic style.

I wouldn't mind getting the cartoon colors as well!!!

I think that they look excellent and NECA can go really far with these!

Well, I just pre-ordered the 4 Turtles with the bases (the deluxe set I suppose?) for $55 on BBTS. The 4 Turtles without the bases is $45. Individually they range in price, but Raph is already sold out. I would imagine if this line continues to see multiple artistic interpretations of the turtles and possibly see Black and White and Cartoon colored variations. Then again I could be way off.

THere's a black and white version planned

I'm not sure for the prices. Nothing has been announced so far but supposely the box set should come with full accessories where the single ones will be cheaper but with less accessories.

Guys think of it as FIRST APPEARANCE ninja turtles. They hit it DEAD ON! However i wouldn't mind a NOW version. Kind of like a Turtles Legend figure. The current toys aren't as accurate and detailed as these are.

The turtles look really great IMO. The detail and articulation is dead on.

Playmates fails at making toys. Raphael alone is better than every TMNT figure Playmates made.
