    Those Classics figures look amazing! If they have even close to that quality in-hand they'll be the best new line of this year.

    I like it a lot.

    I LOVE seeing a company take a chance on a big playset, seems a bit thin, but the size is great! and it's a PLAYSET!!
    I actually like the look of the new turtles, the classics are cool but I may prefer these new guys (just wish they had the same articulation)

    I think I'll collect the new guys I do like the classics but they lack detail - cartoon accurate no doubt but for these guys I'd want more textrue) I may get them though, but I will for sure get the new guys and the main characters likely zero variants.

    My wallet just let out a "yeep" sound. The new figures look really great. I will be getting both the Classics and the new toys. The vehicles and play set are over the top. Playmates surprised me here, and blew away my expectations. Lets hope it just gets fleshed out. Thanks Dan.

    Those Classics are awesome, I am hoping those get a good retail push and don't require going through a limited order on a website.

    Oh no! No.. No... No.... NO!!!!! This is going to be VERY BAD for my wallet!

    I'm definately going to want to get the classic figures. Those are looking rather cool. Hopefully they will be well staggered over time.

    The new line is looking cool, though I doubt I will collect it, at least not fully. They look cool, but I can't see starting a completely new line. The playset is tempting though! I wouldn't mind getting it and displaying some of my vintage figures with it or something, assuming they will be compatible. I'm not sure how well the new classics figures will work with it since they are of a different scale than the other new line figures.

    I would like to see a better picture of the new line's Shredder figure, though. He's in the playset picture and looks pretty cool from what I can tell there. I may get him and a few other core characters if I get any at all.

    The new line Turtles are really nice - way better than I expected. I may have ti get them.

    But seeing them still makes me sad that the NECA line is dead.

    The classics line looks great but I'm not too wild about the new style turtles. Though if you look close at the playset picture you can get a glimpse of Shredder, Splinter, Foot Soldier and April. Shredder and Foot Soldier look okay, need to see better pics to pass final judgement. Splinter seems a bit off to me, looks more like a fox than a rat. Can't get a great look at April but from what I can see she's cute, I'll probably pick her up. (It's April O'Neil, you'd have to go out of your way to make her not look good!)

    That playset looks bigger than the towers of Eternia.

    Man, I can't stop staring at these! Like the rest of you, my wallet is going to be crying! I'm definitely picking up the Classics and the new line!

    The Classics just look incredible. Actual cartoon accurate Turtles, for the first time ever! This is great, and I hope they do some of the baddies in this line as well!

    I LOVE the new designs! I like how these figures are a mixture of the new cartoon adn new comic book. I hope the final product looks as well detailed as these! And I love the new vehicle, and that massive playset will be mine! No idea where I'll be putting it...but I'm buying it!

    Oh man, I'm with you dude! The demise of the NECA line is one of the saddest toy relatd incidents for me. I LOVED their line, and really wish we would have got the Shredder and Foot Soldiers we were shown.

    Yup, same boat, I had to put my joe play sets and vehicles in storage to make room for our daughter's toys, luckily she likes to play with my MOTUC and she may like TMNT (crossing fingers), sooo I may get away with it.

    Yeah, it's about friggin' time, too. Those "Toon Turtles" that they made in the original line didn't look right. They were like really goofy over-exaggerations of the cartoon looks, and overly happy in a "candy land" kind of way. These actually look right!

    I think the classics look great, but I have no interest in them. I used to watch the cartoon, but I also bought the original comic from Day 1 (I remember being blown away by TMNT #1 at my LCS on street date), so those are MY Turtles. And the new line looks "comic enough" for me to get at least the 4 Turtles - and I love that they don't share parts and actually are different sizes. The Deluxe ones on the other hand look kind of awful...

    Oh man, I'm with you dude! The demise of the NECA line is one of the saddest toy relatd incidents for me. I LOVED their line, and really wish we would have got the Shredder and Foot Soldiers we were shown.
    So sad... What could/should have been:

    Did you not see the prototypes of Metal Head, Baxter, Leatherhead & Rahzar.

    I never thought we would ever get a classic like Metal Head so soon.

    Anyway I hope we see an improved Krang & my MUST HAVE Rat King.

    Funny thing about Ben 10 is it has become an anchor for boys toys; the line and tv show have been going for years now without interruptions. Good or bad, love or hate it, it is healthy for that demographic. They have had some really cool toys in that line too. Unfortunately, this generation of children just aren't into Thundercats; that TOY line did almost everything right (it had commercials and a full production cartoon) and it still is drowning. They are great toys (granted they aren't produced with the collector in mind); personally, I blame part of it on the 6-8" collector driven line as the 4" figures have sold well. I really hope TMNT drops the 6 - 8" line; it is a gamble.

    I was going to order from BBTS, but since I decided to go into business for myself I ordered a few cases wholesale and will just offload what I don't want to keep.

    Playmates is making retailer pricing VERY attractive so hopefully that means they will push the line to anyone who wants it. I really do want this line in particular to go multiple waves

    I think TRU didn't want an exclusive cause they got killed on those B10 exclusives that have been collecting dust for a while.


    Walmart is planning a big reset in their toy department for most of their stores in the next few weeks and from what I heard, TMNT is in the plan-o-gram.

    I actually went to 5 different Walmarts over the weekend, which is something I never do, looking for those dog gone 6in Avengers figures and almost every store was completely wiped of everything. They had hardly anything on the shelves at all. Even the Hasbro stuff was empty.

    Ben 10 is the new He-Man. Since 2006 "the Ben 10 franchise has grossed over $2 billion in retail sales in Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA) and has sold 100 million toys worldwide".

    Maybe Bandai doesn't know how to deal with toylines that aren't billion dollar megahits. They usually do Dragonball Z, Ben 10 and Power Rangers, all insanely popular shows.

    Just got word from my didtributor due to demand Playmates has increased the case size from 8 classics to 12, so 3 sets will now ship in each case.

    As long as they sell that should mean great things for the classics

    TMNT may have one less property other than Thundercats to compete against

    Just checked both TRU and Target in my area. I almost wanted to track down the manager at Target that told me they would be out Monday to be "that" guy, lol.
