Coming VERY soon: Original Comic Book Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles from Playmates. These guys are an absolute must-have for me!
According to Turtlepedia,
the Playmates versions of classic comic book styled Teenage Mutant
Ninja Turtles will be released in 2015, but chatter over at The Technodrome Forums (including an in-package picture from Playmates Toys' Facebook Page...)
NECA Leonardo but he's incomplete, so I am glad Playmates will be releasing their versions. Sure, they won't be as 'high-end' or collector aimed, but I like my Turtles as they should be: toys. In addition, these look to be scaled with the current line (and in close proximity to the original TMNT action figures) so they will look great next to the original Casey Jones and April action figures (and others!) The NECA turtles were much larger than Playmates standard TMNT action figures so they never blended well with existing figures. Of course they do work well with the new TMNT Classics figures, but that's a post for another day.
EDIT: looking at the in-package pictures, it is clear the weapons are similar to the current TMNT turtle action figure weapons and cast in either solid grey (sais, katana) or solid brown (bo, nunchucks). But since articulation and paint applications appear quite basic (as they should be on these guys) I imagine they will look pretty close to these images. The only thing I could imagine them skipping out on would be black paint in the 'cross-hatching' of the sculpts. It would be a shame if they skipped that paint application, since it is part of what makes these guys look like the original artwork, but it would also be an easy fix.
They are also now listed on the Playmates website, so really hope we see them in stores soon. I will be lurking the TMNT toy aisles until I do!
