  1. So...does anyone have the 2017 SDCC Donnie????? I don't recall ever seeing the giveaway. They are no longer on eBay. I've been looking forward to this one for a while now but it's not looking good.
  2. These Pirates sets don't seem to be doing very well at all. All I ever see are two FULL pegs of these things.
  3. I'd like to throw Mortal Kombat and MMPR (classic versions) into the mix as well. I would be in some serious financial issues if they started making Harry Potter or Star Wars Minimates.
  4. Kids should definitely know what Classic TMNT is. Go look at any of the clothes in the boys aisle. A lot of the TMNT cloths are the older style Turtles, not just the newer Nick style. Toys R Us carried the 6" Classic TMNT figures (both the cartoon and movie versions) as well as the Retro 1980's rereleases, it just seemed like it would've been a good fit.
  5. No, I'm just saying that there continues to be new TMNT merchandise put out on shelves that seems to be selling fairly well while the last two waves of TMNT Minimates haven't done so hot. TRU clearly hasn't "given up on Minimates in their entirety" if they're still putting out stuff like Watchmen, Dark Tower, NBX, etc. I still think a classic TMNT wave would've sold better to kids & collectors compared to something like Dark Tower where even hardcore Dark Tower fans might not even pull the trigger on a purchase.
  6. Then how would you explain all of the brand new TMNT stuff still being released? Recently I've seen new Playmates basic action figures (Samurai wave), the giant 12" figures, the TMNT/WWE figures, and micro TMNT figures and playsets.
  7. Exactly. I forgot all about those! If Thundercats was popular enough to warrant 4 box sets, Classic TMNT should be able to AT LEAST match that.
  8. Ah, you're right! I forgot they were going to do a Krang too!
  9. Yeah, I was hoping maybe box sets could save this line somehow. Although I wouldn't take a chance on packing the box sets like that. I would make sure you get the big guns out there first so we're not stuck with incomplete teams. #1 = Leonardo, Michelangelo, Donatello, Raphael #2 = Shredder, Splinter, Casey, April #3 = Bebop, Rocksteady, Baxter Stockman, Foot Soldier
  10. Personally I think Batman and TMNT at their best when they're on the streets versus in space. I still think those two space waves killed the Nick TMNT Minimates line. Maybe not so much the actual space suits as much as character selection; making characters like Chrome Dome (almost identical to Bradford) or Bishop (almost identical to Norman) and never getting around to guys like Rat King, Leatherhead, etc. Playmates also made the Space Turtles, Space April, Space Casey, Fugitoid, Mozar (in addition to Lord Dregg, Robobug and Armaggon) and those seemed to sell just fine. I can see why they didn't want to order the new stuff when I still see pegs FULL of TRU wave 4 and 5 and that's even after they were clearanced to half off.
  11. What is "this other thing instead" that people wanted? I think people were bummed about the Nick TMNT mates ending but were excited about the classic Turtles which would explain a lot of the current heartache.
  12. ? They already made the Mirage Turtles in both color and black and white. What other classic Turtles were people requesting?
  13. I haven't been super excited about Minimates in a long time but I was reallllly looking forward to those classic TMNT waves. It's baffling to me that lines like Alien Convenant, Watchmen, and Dark Tower can get TRU support but something like a classic TMNT line can't get off the ground. I still think the TMNT line never recovered after those damn space waves. It's been a year and you can still find those entire waves rotting on the pegs.
  14. Wait...what?! What happened???!!! By the way, did anyone end up finding more of those SDCC translucent Donnies? They seem to have disappeared rather quickly.
  15. They needed a Comedian Smiley Face Variant to anchor a second wave?
  16. I'm 32 and I've never heard of Ernie Kovac. The cutoff must be 33 1/2 years old, haha.
  17. The Watchmen Kubricks were indeed at TRU. I remember wanting to buy them but not in the hope of maybe one day they would be made in Minimates form!
  18. Does anyone have any unwanted Anna and Poncho sets. I've got Billy, Edwin and Cuchillo available from the blind bags.
  19. Yeah, I only spent about $15-$20 each on the other ones.
  20. I stopped at a few different TRUs on vacation last week. I don't think the Convenant stuff really exists.
