I have preordered a case of the classics myself as I doubt these will even hit our stores

Scroll down for a good look at the proto-type (?) sculpt for Raphael from the TMNT Retro/Classics line:

They have these at Hobby Co Town Hall

Anyway found this at ebay , vintage of 95 figurines MOC.

http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/TMNT-FIGURES-95-FIGURES-MASSIVE-LOT-MOC-/150846608903?pt=AU_Action_Figures&hash=item231f289607#ht_500wt_1287


EDIT: I thought it was the latest ones but just seeing a playmates label on a TMNT figure.I believe the detailing is superb.

^^^^

They have the new Retro Classics TMNT action figures from Playmates? I don't think they've even been released in the US.

Or they have the new 2012 cartoon series action figures (which TRU in the US did start accidentally shipping to customers in the last week or two)?

I do not think its the new ones from what I just read. I just saw it labelled by playmates and I thought the detailing in the figures was nice.

I found the TMNT Classics at Comics Etc, Brisbane - $25.00 each.

They appeared to have two (2) complete sets.

I have an order coming from Amazon, but they looked great in person and I spent far too many minutes on the weekend wondering how I could justify having two of one of the turtles, but I'm just not competent enough at customising to somehow make a Slash.

So beautiful. The last time I checked, my Amazon order was still in New Jersey.

I haven't been this excited for new figures in a very long time.

I just followed suit and ordered some off Amazon as well. Also got the four new cartoon turtles (have a very comic bookish look I like). $125 for 8 figures shipped... unbelievably cheap.

Amazon is the place to get this stuff, there is no way anyone can beat that price. For me to buy and ship the 4 TMNT Classics from the USA to OZ would be $120 the New Turtle Cartoon Versions its $55. Ebay is dead! All hail our new online ruler Amazon.

They had these at my LCS (Comics Etc Brisbane) for $25 each, I bought Leo and Mike last week, was hoping to grab Don and Raph yesterday but they had sold out (should have grabbed them when I saw them)

Apparently they might be getting some more but it will be a few months away

Received my TMNT Retro-Classics today.

I'm going to restrict myself to opening one per day over the next four days, but they look great. A few little quibbles with marks, paint slop, etc.

But I hope to be able to fix most of those things once they're freed from their plastic prisons (which themselves are very cool with a sewer grate embossed on the top and ooze running down the sides).

IF you're reading this and you haven't ordered any TMNT Classics - do so NOW.

They're fantastic figures for just under $20.00 each from Amazon. I was originally put off by all the "unnecessary" articulation (e.g. fingers, toes and torso), but it works well and they're so much fun to play with and pose. I've barely put Michelangelo down since I freed him from his plastic prison.
