    Yeah I would just hold on to them if the eyes really bother you, you will see them at retail next month.

    There will be no shortage of the Classics from what Playmates has told retailers. I talked with two Playmate Toys agents last week and they said they are getting Classics out to retail as fast as they get them in so once the line launches for real you should be able to find some that might have better eyes.

    Its only scare now because the official launch of the toyline is not till 7/29 so people are rushing to get the toys.

    This a nice line. Can't go wrong for $8.99. This is a great time to be an action figure collector with lines like TRON Legacy, Thundercats, Men in Black, Ninja Turtles, and on and on. I just hope they put out a weapons pack with some painted weapons.

    That is the official week for Targets toy reset. So for you Turtle and Monster High fans that is the week to check for new toys.

    It isn't too late for them to save Splinter. They can release him as a kung-fu kangaroo. He just needs a different tail and brown head. Then they can put out a new splinter

    Can you post pics of them with white eyes once you have done that? I'm interested to see how that turns out.

    Are these about the same height as the vintage Turtles line? Looking at them in the old layer playset (which I still have) would make it appear to be so.

    I finally found these at TRU today and they looked great.

    I'm really trying to cut down though so I passed on them.

    I got my Classic Turtles I pre-ordered from BBTS and opened them up last night. I LOVE these figures! The hand articulation is a little weird. I could have done without the finger joints. And the only other real flaw is that my Donatello has wonky eyes. But even still, I find myself very excited about these figures! I really hope Playmates gives us more than just the four turtles in Classic style! Bring on some villains! This is like another dream toyline!

    I spoke with my Playmates rep in Consumer & Office Services yesterday afternoon, they are getting swamped with orders for the Classics and 4" line and retail is demanding more product so I definitely think we will see more waves of both by Toy Fair if not before

    If your looking for them. Walmart.com has them in stock. Yet they're not listed when you do a search for TMNT.

    That could only mean GREAT things for the line!

    Still reviewing these guys and today we're looking at everyone's favorite nerdy Turtle, Donatello!



    I gotta be honest, I really like this figure. I'm torn between him and Mikey as my favorite of the Nick designs.



    It's sort of amazing how much I've forgotten my hatred of the third toe. That's thanks in part to the great sculpts and ton of fun that these guys are.



    As usual, I got the full breakdown so take a look if you're thinking about picking one of these guys up!

    I don't really mind the three toes at all, but I do feel like the feet are a little bigger than they need to be. Shredder has the same problem, his feet are huge.

    They will come back in stock, they have done so three times so far. As we get closer to the release date you will see more availability

    The Classics are VERY hot right now, I have sold out a few times now as has Playmates website and now Walmart. I have not seen activity like this for a boys line in quite some time, Amazon still has them as does Playmates website but its for $16.99-18 ea

    I received the CC Leo yesterday from Amazon and I am quite impressed. I only got Leo because he's my fave turtle and I wanted to test the waters to see what the quality was like. Needless to say, I'll definitely be picking up the rest when I see them in stores. Might even wait until the next run on Donatello to see if they fix the eye issue. Wasn't Playmates waiting to see how the CC line performed to determine if they would be going forward with it? Sounds like the reception is unanimously positive and sales are great coming out of the gate. Shredder would be SO good in this style.

    Which four classics characters would you like to see in the next wave?

    I'd say Shredder, Krang, Bebop and Rocksteady

    Then: April, Splinter, Casey Jones, Foot Soldier

    Finally (fingers crossed): Baxter Stockman, Rat King, Metalhead, Irma

    So wait, do the Classics come out the same day as the rest of the regular line does on the 29th? Or are they projected for another time?

    They "might" appear at the same time but I can tell you they are shipping differently from Playmates. The 7/29 date only applies to the 4" line and its vehicles/characters.

    The Classics just have a date of "August" as far as distribution goes. There is currently no DPCI number for the Classics at Target, Walmart has just gotten them online and most retailers are just getting their initial shipments now.
