Looks like ordering them online like at BBTS is the way to go. I paid $15.99 for mine at a collector shop so I figured retail would have been quite a bit less.
I would rather pay the dollar more to get them at store level then pay for S&H

I'm hoping not, I guess it probably depends on how successful the cartoon is going to be. Who wouldn't love BeeBop and Rocksteady? Shredder? "Fly" Baxter Stockman? All great! Problem is that this isn't really enough mass-appeal to buy the figures beyond the first four turtles. I know people like us, who come to message boards and talk about it, are totally down for buying the extra guys, but I don't think there is enough interest to mass release anyone else. I just guess I'm thinking I wouldn't want playmates to have a huge stock of them and then just get sour on the figures like Bandia did with TC.
Again, I am 100% for buying any and all TMNTC figures they make, realistically I am not expecting much. My inner child is still too sad about TC to get his hopes up.

well at least they've released the four turtles. TCats only got as far as Lion-O and Tygra, leaving Panthro, Cheetara, and the Wily's in the dust...not even a flippin Snarf which should've been included with Lion-O. it's like bandai fell asleep in the middle of production.

Personally, I don't think Playmates ever intended to make any non-Turtle characters in the Classics line. Sure they made vague mention of making figures from other series/movies if the line was successful, but never did they mention any other characters. Which is sad, but makes since. Turtles are like the old Power Ranger figures. The bodies are all identicle, all you need is a new head and some accessories. Four figures, one buck.
On the same token, for a mid-size company like Playmates, tooling multiple super-articulated bucks for figures of April, Casey, Shredder, Splinter, etc. would be an almost impossible undertaking. Especially with the Classics being a sub-line.
