    This is promising. It's a bummer that they're TRU exclusives, though.

    Chris here...

    I try and be more selective in which TMNT figures I do and don't collect these days, but there's some stuff there that sounds like it might be too good to leave!

    Nice to see my favourite quartet of superheroes still enjoying popularity - the Turtles are one of the great, enduring passions of my life!

    Take care...
    Are you fed up with the problems you've been experiencing buying from MattyCollector.com?

    MOTU Classics is an amazing toyline, and collecting it should be fun. Let's try and make a difference.

    Cool! Hopefully this means getting to those figures they showed off awhile back. Granted, the Foot Soldier they showed was still sporting Playmates' fancy brand of random and useless articulation, but we'll see. It's hard to come by well-articulated TMNT toys beyond the Turtles themselves.

    I like the news about the old Movie Star Turtles, too! I only had Raph, back in the day.

    Yeah the comic turtles (the foot you mentioned) are supposed to be coming out. Originally the rumor was they were canned, but it seems they're back on now with the rest of this stuff.

    I want to get these classic Turtles toys, but I can never find them in any store here, including Toys R Us.

    hopefully we will get shredder and the rest of the retro figs.

    i really hate how playmates has handled the brand though. i wish NECA had free reign with TMNT since they have made my fave tmnt toys to date.

    from the comic line i may get splinter if they are talking about the ones we saw at toyfair.
    I want NA Skeletor and Rio Blast and I want them now!

    I saw this news yesterday and it gotme really excited! I'm glad to finally hear something!

    Now let's hope we finally get Shredder, Slash, Casey, and the Foot Soldier to finish our current set of classics!

    Just looking at the Movie star turtles on the wall now, and for some reason they look like they have some odd disease with the spot placement

    Hopefully they will mode the paint scheme some this round

    Those movie star Turtles sound great!
    I am so glad they didn't get cancelled.
    Now I want playmates to release the Foots soldiers again so I can add more soldiers to my foot army.

    That'd be awesome. With Playmates who knows, if sales are good the sky is the limit.
