TOY NEWS INTERNATIONAL :: LOOK – – We’re getting SLAMMED with TURTLE related product in 2016 and i’m really overwhelmed here, so screw it. I trust Dan’s reviews and just am gonna post the imperative walk-thru’s he made with the companies offering the impressive pieces so many will want to add to their collections.
x16 2 x 4″ cards, each magnet almost 2″. 4 designs. 1 TEACHER CARD design .. the magnets are lightly glued to each card, strong enough to stay on the card thru’ handling. But once removed – they are ready to stick to a fridge. locker door or other metal surface. I believe these were Walmart exclusive, that may be incorrect. But you love me anyways, right ??
–>> Here we go, wrapping up this break-down of the “History- ” set with 1 final installment..
2014’s movie Leo release is Another figure that retains minimal modification, possibly due to it’s more recent release of the carded version. Updated copyright info, the threaded pegholes, and potentially a slightly off-molded head. The changes are so small compared to the carded retail version
I mostly use the “Paramount Movie” tag to distinguish the 2014 movie reboot from the original films. Not that it’s hard to do that. My “tOkKustom” repaint of the standard carded Leo figure was to heighten the details of the Varner sculpt, not necessarily to go for hyper-detailed movie accuracy. It suffices i suppose.
The two noggins on the toy seem slightly different. But i highly suspect a manufacturing issue on that note.
..here’s lotsa Movie Leo figures, for fun.
Were you lucky enough to find this set under your tree last month ??

..bottom line, aside from the Giant KID-SIZED TMNT figures we’ve seen during the Holidays from JAKKS ( Mikey and Leo so far ) – – we may see other scale figs. Jakks has been putting out larger Nintendo, ZELDA, MARIO, STAR WARS, WWE, HALO and the like. There may be another scale offered by Jakks akin to those other franchise lines. We’ll see. NY TOY FAIR is around the corner.
I was alerted that the “Environmental Playsets” were part of a series of TOMB RAIDER, LAURA CROFT toys by Playmates – – so apparently they did see some kind of release.
–>> SDCC ’03 would be my first of the California Cons and Playmates had a nice medium-sized presence to help celebrate of the then, still very new 4kids TMNT T.V. show. Michael Dooney himself was on hand much of the time at Playmates’ booth to sign autographs and sketch. Toy giveaways were were done sporadically and this was my first “official” exposure to the TMNT at a convention post previous independent TURTLE MEDIA convention appearances. Most of my personal photos from this Con & particular were accidentally deleted. However this two page spread highlights the most interesting releases of the second wave of the TMNT-2k3 toy line that were on display. Of note are two deluxe boxed sets that were never sent into production. They were incredibly impressive in person. But they were not to see the manufactured time of day and have gone into the PLAYMATES archives for good. The figures however are merely “battle damaged” repaints.
