Your tips on 1980s/90s TMNT collecting

Post by Grimr on Wed Mar 28, 2012 5:24 pm

Hi All,

Decided that vintage TMNT is the go!

What I am hoping for is any tips for collecting the old TMNT figures, the unique characters more so than the Turtles redos. I know the uber rare figures, like Scratch and Hotspot etc, but just wondering any other tips as there is heaps of good deals on USA ebay, but shipping is a buzz kill, and I am the kinda person who wants the lot (lots of the later figures) as soon as possible. Like common problems or missing things etc.

Hope have not been to unclear...basically any advice form your TMNT collecting adventures would be appreciated.

LOL. I'm in the same position. I'm trying to collect the old school TMNT and while the prices on US Ebay are fantastic, the shipping is ridiculously high.

As such, I can't really offer any tips.

But, www.myteefinestuff.com is semi-decent, although you'll want to order a LOT of figures to make the shipping worthwhile. And while they have a great selection, they're still missing a few figures that I want (e.g. Mona Lisa).

I've sent emails to www.ninjaturtlefigures.com to see if they will ship internationally, but they never bother to reply.

The shipping from Ebay UK isn't normally too bad, but I've yet to find a decent "bulk" lot that would really make it worthwhile.

Good luck!

I used to frequent a site called The Technodrome:

May be easier to get a bulk lot there.

The main item I am planning to hunt for my vintage Turtles is the Lair playset. Though I also need a proper Turtle Wagon...mine is missing a few pieces.



Heaps of figures I still want to get like Baxter & Panda Khan.

Buy in big bulk lots. Provided the dummy the other end does not rape you with shipping. Large USPS flat rate priorty boxes can shipped about 25-35+ TMNT figures loose. (I ship about 40 ML/DCUC in them at once, TMNT are usually shorter but alittle bulkier) The cost will run you about $60 but then the breakdown will avarage out to a much nicer $2 a figure.

(and if you ask nicely you can always get small lots shipped to me and I send in a larger box once full)
