No idea what the street date's supposed to be, but some TRU's have the new turtles from the nick toon out. Some have gotten them from Target too, but only by asking employees to search in the back. I haven't heard anything about them making it out to the shelves there yet.

Here are some scans of the pack-in pamphlet if anybody's interested:

I saw the news on the Technodrome fansite forum. Some nice fellow posted a link to Target's website to check if their local Targets have the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles toys in stock. I think so far the new TMNT toys at Target are not on the shelves yet but Target staff should be able to ring the toys and sell them.

I called the Target closest to me and confirmed that they do have them. So I drove all the way down to the States. At first the staff I asked couldn't find the item with the DPCI number I gave him. I then went to the customer service desk and she was able to look them up on her computer to found out that they are still in the back room. The staff there was nice enough to bring out a new and open it for me to grab a set.

My area Targets say "Available" on the Nick ones, but when I call they say that they are only in the computer and won't get them until August. <_<

Both Toys R Us stores in my area now have them. (N. San Antonio, TX)
The one closest to me had to get them out from the back while the other said they had a whole display set up. What was funny was the guy who helped me. He said he's collected just about all of the Turtle line and he doesn't like the new ones. "They just look terrible." he said. We both had a good laugh. @lol@ I told him about the Classics that should be out soon and that made him happy. I personally love these new Nickelodeon versions.

I personally think the new Nick toon turtles figures are the best sculpts Playmates have released so far. It does feel cheap that they didn't paint the weapons but with a price point so affordable I can't complain.

Also took advantage of the 20% off and free shipping. Pre-ordered the 11" turtles. Figured they won't show up in Canada for a while.

The 2012 TMNT are just starting to hit the Toys R Us near me. Found some in the TRU near Franklin Mills mall in Philadelphia PA. Haven't seen anything in Jersey yet. The only turtle they had was Donatello, which I picked up along with April, Shredder and Splinter. I also picked up the missile firing motorcycle. I can't wait until the classic turtles hit the stores.

Hey ladies & gents...........if your looking to get your hands on the classics at a fair price....check out playmates website, just got all 4 turtles and with shipping was really a fair deal.

Yeah no sign of them in my neck of the woods either. Frankly the only TMNT I have seen was the sole Leo I picked up weeks back, and that was just the Nick one. Glad I already ordered all my TMNT stuff online.

My local Target has stocked up on the new Ninja Turtles figures, but not the Classics. I am still hunting for the Classic line. I don't want to get them online just yet.
