Workin’ Fans’ Update :: Flingers & Ooze TMNT on pegs, pre-TOY FAIR surprises & Michael Bay

Hitting stores • •

–>>  Past several days, the REAL wave two & next set of deluxe figs of Nick’s TMNT have been hitting some stores slowly across North America .. and on **ebay.  Again, Tokka’s gona gently plead to use common sense and wait out the ridiculous prices some are charging on the ‘bay, unless your back is entirely against the wall or just so desperate for newest figs and money isn’t much an issue. Prices will stabilize once they hit brick and mortar stores and other online vendors like the good ol’ **BBTS.

But i know how it is, ya gotta do whatcha gotta do i guess.   :/

Looking carefully, and as yet unconfirmed ( Tokk just doesn’t get to do forum hoppin’ like he used to. UGH !! ~~ ** ) ..the Ooze line of teens may have removable noggins like their wave 1 counterparts.

If that’s the case, theory would lead one to believe you could swap the heads out if you wanted to make your Wave 1 TMNTs a little bit more show accurate than their initial sculpts.


** Pre-Toy Fair surprises & previews await on the Playmates official site including the return of some old friends in the basic and Classics waves of the coming months.


Now, according to ** TOYARK & Hurrijak of T-drome here’s a nice breakdown of what’s to come in plastron-plastic form and a few spoilers actually for the rest of season 1 ::

Cowabunga! Thanks to Hurrijak of the Technodrome forums, we have a list from Walmart computers showing listings for upcoming…..

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2013 figures

  • Mutagen Ooze Leonardo
  • Mutagen Ooze Raphael
  • Mutagen Ooze Donatello
  • Mutagen Ooze Michaelangelo
  • Baxter Stockman
  • Leatherhead
  • Ratking
  • Snakeweed
  • Cockroach
  • Mouser 7 pack

  • Ninjas Don & Leo
  • Ninjas Mike & Raph
  • Stealth Leonardo
  • Stealth Raphael
  • Stealth Donatello

Battle Shell Ninja Turtles($19.99) are also coming to Walmart. In addition, there are listings for new vehicles:
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Vehicles 2013

  • Ooze Sewer Cruiser
  • Ooze Drop Copter
  • Kraang Hover Drone
  • Turtle Motorcycle


A second version of Splinter and Saki on the docket gives hope for better sculpted & design versions of the Turtles’ essential supporting cast than their somewhat disappointing wave 1 entries.

Early design influences prompted the figures’ off looks last year i’m sure so let’s hope things shape up at least just a little bit better in ’13.

Cross you’re claws we won’t get let down. X{
