Last week I noticed that the Toys R Us website had new turtle figures in stock. I quickly placed an order getting Shredder, Kraang, Donatello, and Leonardo before the rest went out of stock. I got them in the mail on Friday. These figures are definitely the best ones I've seen in a looooooong time. Since receiving them, TRU.com has them completely off the site. Hopefully they'll be back up soon. Would really like to get Splinter, Raph, and Mikey!

Too bad Playmates had to cheap out on the paint. The prototype samples looked amazing!
The sculpts for the new series is good and the actual toys do not look bad. I hope they will be available in Canada.

Nice! Thanks Joker. Does Shredder have articulation at the feet? How is his pose-ability?

Now, the only thing that irks me is this heavily stylized design (over-proportioned gautlets, massive bulky chest) i don't get why they have to go crazy with that. I have to debate if I will pick up this series or hope that Playmates continues on with their TMNT classics and get to Shredder and the Foot. They better show stuff at SDCC to assure fans that they can pick up the Classics and not get stuck with just the four Turtles.

He only has articulation at the hip, elbows, and shoulders. Oh and head. I was a little disappointed about that but the sculpt is great!

thanks for sharing the pics. I really like how the turtles have different molds, that doesn't always happen. I keep hoping with each reboot they will shrink these guys down to Joe size!

Thank you very much for posting the photos. I'm still excited for this line, but it's a bit dissapointing to see Shredder lacking in articulation. Most especially his apparent lack of knees. I have a question, and a couple of picture requests if you don't mind...

That cape you have Shredder wearing, where/what is that from?

If you could, could you take a couple of pictures of the Kraang removed from the robotic body?

Also, could you take a picture of the back of Shredder's card? I'd love to read what his bio has to say about him.

Was there any paperwork that came with the figures? and if so, could you take a picture or two of it?

The cape I put on Shredder is actually the cape that came on the original Shredder figure back in the late 80s. After all these years I still have it and thought it added a bit more to the figure. The only paperwork that came with Leo and Don was a little booklet that showed all the figures and vehicles that will be available. I didn't keep them. Here's a few more pics.Attached File  100_7889.JPG   3.82MB   30 downloadsAttached File  100_7890.JPG   3.99MB   44 downloadsAttached File  100_7891.JPG   4.37MB   24 downloads

Thank you for answering my questions and for the pictures. I'm a little embarrassed that I didn't recognize old Shredder's cape (then again, I never did have him growing up...). I might have to track down a loose cape for new Shredder.

It's good to see that Playmates didn't actually get rid of the Kraang's other arms, and that the reason it only appeared to have two in your photos, and in a stock photo from Playmates, was because the other arms were stowed away in the android body.

Can u tell us what shredders articulation points are?

looking at the pic, he has 16 points of articulation. knees, hip (lateral and horizontal count individually), waist, wrist, elbow, shoulder (lateral and horizontal), and neck. i cant tell if the feet swivel. if they do than the total poa count would be 18.

Finally got a chance to open my toys. I was only able to open Leo and Raph tonight and then my camera's battery died.
I'm really like the turtles so far. The plastic used feels soft so it's easy to place the weapons in the turtles hands without worrying that the paint might scratch off.(Although no paint was applied to the weapons nor were the inner palms were painted)

I really like how Playmates chose softer plastic for the front shell to allow more mobility for the legs.

Guess what? The weapon racks from the vintage line are back. So far I think only the turtles and April comes with a weapons rack.


More pics and comments to come :)

Went to TRU, they had gotten TMNT in stock, the only Turtle they had was Leo so I snagged him, not sure if I will grab any of the others like Shredder or Krang, but for sure the turtles. April looks like a pass to me

Playmates usually say great attention to detail for the Turtles but the rest of the cast is usually where they cut corners. Really bad articulation, cutting down accessories. The new Splinter only comes with a stick! It's got to be a joke, Splinter and Stick!

The time to get them is now boys and girls. TRU.com is having an online sale of 20% off when you buy $75 worth of stuff. I got the Turtles, Splinter, Shredder and four Foot Ninja for $86 after shipping. All of them are still in stock as of now.

My apologies if this seems like an violation of privacy, RockThe Plank. I will state this on the basis that members willing give personal info in bios.

I'm guessing Florida, "G-town" or something if the bio is up to date. ;)

Georgetown around lake George.
