I loved those movies (still do), so I hate to be so critical of these figures, but the likenesses suck. There's just no excuse for it, especially from the very company who made such a point of making the Movie Star Turtles look so spot-on way back in the original line!

I'm jealous of my friend. He has a complete set of those movie star Turtles. I wish they were 100% movie accurate, though. They don't have the brown knee and elbow pads....

I think it's the same case with the wave 1 2012 TMNT figures. The Turtles in the official pics had highly detailed paint job including painted weapons but the actual product lacks a lot of the paint work and had a basic paint job. Same thing with the earlier sneak peak picture of movie Leonardo. Very good paint job to bring out the details and such but the final products lacks those paint mostly due to keeping the price point in control. I think if you add some paint work to the figures they will look a lot better. The sculpts there but a bit too smooth if you compare these to the Movie Star Turtles.

The point is we don't work for Playmates, and we shouldn't have to.
Equally, Playmates make toys for kids. I've only just realised not to expect collector quality, NECA-style work from them.
That said... these are supposed to be tehir "collector" line, so I am equally disappointed.
