Playmates Shredder 2013 Limited Edition

Post by awe on Tue Sep 10, 2013 9:10 am

Ok, so this guy popped up here in Myer (Sydney, CBD) of all places.



I was so surprised, I grabbed one. They have about a dozen in a glass cabinet near the Toys sales desk and they are $29.95 which is probably not a great price, now that I stop to think about it.

I am a sucker for a convention exclusive with no postage though.

I wonder if TRU passed on these because of all the Shadow Leonardos they can't move? He's definitely better than the series 1 Shredder, just with the knee articulation alone (none at the elbow though) but the chrome looks quite nice. I think we will get this version with the new waves of TMNT but without the chrome as I understand it.

Anyways, he'll go nice with my Hasbro Composite Hulk and Mattel Unmasked Batman as con-exclusive regrets Wink

Hey Shocka. The answer to that is, not as much as the Turtles... but more than most of the villains in this series so far.

Pixel-Dan has a pretty good review here...

But to summarize...

head - standard joint. (turns left and right)
shoulders - ball joints (shoulder spikes are hinged to allow movement)
elbows - none
forearms - none
wrists - standard swivel joints
waist - standard swivel
thighs - hinged? ball? joints (allows up and out movement)
knee - standard joint (forwards-backwards movement)
ankles - none
feet - none

What surprised me is that the armor (except for the helmet) is not removable. It totally looks like you could just slip it off. Oh well.

Went hunting for more info and it seems Myer is actually cheaper than the SDCC price for this guy...

Really though. Its still overpriced when you consider these have sold here for under $10. Maybe we are the dumping ground for unsold exclusives again?

If Playmates made something that looked half that good, I would be happy.

Only in Myer Sydny it appears. Went into Myer Melbourne today. They knew about it but said, "Sydney, not Melbourne".

Couldn't do an inter store transfer either.

May need you to go back and pick me up one!!

Sure thing Pixo. I'll wander over again today.

Steve, there wasn't anything else even close to an SDCC exclusive. The girl who pointed them out to me did say she met with Hasbro and Lego people that morning, so the first thing I thought was "Thunderbolts!". But I don't know why as they've never carried Legends at this Myer.

I'd take one as well if you see a few around awe. He does look much cooler than the original.

Got them. PMs sent.

I had another chat with the lady there, and as far as she has been told, it is a Myer only thing in Australia. But it seems that they don't know what they are getting until they open the cases.

Ouch. Yeah, he's $7 off in the sale. Front page of the catalog and there's still a fair few here.

That will teach me. Sorry guys :-/

Cheers Art. Yeah, same here.

Really weird that BBTS has them on pre-order for $39.99. http://www.bigbadtoystore.com/bbts/product.aspx?product=PLM11337&mode=retail

For once, Oz seems to be cheaper all round.

I'm also really looking forward to the 7-pack of mousers. Hope we see those too.
