Playmates "touching-up" previous waves..

  • Got this in from a friend back East; i believe located in Georgia at a TARGET store, thanks Dakota ::   Reissues of figures from prior TMNT waves such as Cockroach Terminator ( shown in the screencap from the friend on Instagram above), Dogpound, Leatherhead, and Snakeweed and maybe others – – have been reported to have newer paint applications and deco that looks much more improved and somewhat similar to their prototype predecessors. Playmates’s scale with the Turtles line has been an ever present issue – – but these newer paint decos on the older releases may make up for the line’s short comings. So again, keep an eye out.

IDW METALHEAD ✖ ✖

Previews are out, books are on the shelves and reviews are popping up so I feel there’s no need to hold this back.
Metalhead’s redesign for IDW’s TMNT! Had fun with this one! As you may see on his debut book (TMNT#34) the speeder/car mode was something that I suggested and writer Tom Waltz and editor Bobby Curnow embraced.

My goal here was to not only give this version of the character a voice and look of its own, but also to pay a homage to the original design. Mission accomplished I believe.

Hope you all enjoy it.

Quick Toy notes::

As usual, the drum i pound each and every-time until the damn drum breaks breaks: ” patience is key “. More power to the individual collector or ones of extraneous circumstances who can afford the really wacky and sometimes unreasonable prices any particular dealer offers for advanced product. Not to chastise any particular dealer, i’m sure they price things based on demand. More power to them too.. But if you stay vigil and PATIENT the same product should, in most cases be available locally in your area soon, if not very soon. This includes product based on the current T.V. Show from Playmates ( Rahzar, Slash ,LARP TMNT, et al. ), Kidrobot Vinyl releases, ect. When these items show up online in auctions or the toy reviewers receive them from the companies for critique, that’s when you keep a calm and cool eye – best you can on your local store pegs. I know it’s not easy .. but even if i like or not – -it’s the nature of the hunt. Staying cool and collected and learning / recognizing the patterns and signs of product releases makes good sense for getting EVEN THE COMPLETEST everything they want for their particular collection. and you don’t have to break the bank and sell the farm and stress out to make that happen. I’m tellin’ you this cuz Tokka’s gotta tell himself the exact same thing in regards to collecting all the time.   :) And if all else fails..  yes yes.. THERE’S ALWAYS EBAY.   Real quick, our friend  Powder showed us a glimpse of the newest MOVIE T.V. spot with a new Shredder viewpoint. I’ll try to post that soon.     ~ t
