TMNT Minimates - it's official!

Recommended Posts

I was absolutely not trying to change the conversation from everybody reading too much into a single set that got out in the wild. Just trying to show off pics I took today, reassure people about Splinter's robe, and state my incredulity that of all the pictures ToyArk took, the ones that were reposted are the 4X zoom ones, and not the ones showing off the 5 billion accessories, which I had fun shooting.

But please continue! I'll be training my flying monkeys to steal Kre-Os, or whatever that photo of the Wizard of Oz was supposed to mean. ;)



I'm not gonna lie, Zach's attempt to change the conversation made me chuckle. Sneaky marketing.

Keep spreading that Fwoosh brand, FwoosheymanTM! biggrin.png

Sounds like my attempt to replicate a BHM post was a resounding success! :)

Wait...so are all of the Splinters pink instead of brown??? I love the news heads and accessories but that's a major bummer if Splinter is the wrong color.

I'm even more psyched about these after seeing the control art. Casey Jones' accessories are awesome. I was wondering, what is the story behind the mask with Leo and the mouse that comes with Michelangelo?

I've gotta say, these new accessories are amazing. I was going to pass on all 4 Turtles but I've gotta have all these cool new accessories!

So do the figures come in another bag which is in the blind bag? I think that'll make molesting these bags and trying to figure out who's who even more difficult.

I'm interested in white-eyed Turtles and am impressed with the accessories but since there's no way to fondle the bags to make sure the paint apps are decent, I'll pass for now.

I'm keen to see more pictures of these .

I thought the first wave of these were some of the best Minimates I'd ever seen ....er...ever ! Like I always say....... I read the thread & I judge things by what I read... & there was some talk that the quality of the TRU stuff [1st. wave] was somehow different to the blind-bag stuff

I just don't want to believe that that f*ck*d 'Splinter' is typical .....it just can't be .....like in ...... 'can't be' ? Can it? confused.gif

Most were saying the TRU 'mates were worse than the blind bagged ones. My experience was the opposite. A co-worker got the Kmart 'mates and the paint apps were cleaner on the one I got from TRU so... it's a crapshoot.

Yeah, I'm hoping TRU Splinter won't be botched, BUT...

I'm buying these, no matter what. The alt looks and accessories have me totally sold.

My case of Turtles wave 2 was pretty much fine paintwise. The only bad paint apps were a poorly applied face tampo on one of my Casey Jones' (the other was perfect) and the fact that both of my Splinters have frozen elbow joints due to too much paint. I'll have to carefully boil those (to soften the paint) and use an x-acto blade to free up the clumping. But unlike the Toyark pic, both of my Splinters have the proper amount of flower tampos (3) on his kimono.

We may have to Brown him ourselves if it comes down to it.

I'm already thinking of fixing all the turtles bandage paint from wave 1.

Yeah, I'm really hoping that pink face Splinter was a factory error or has a brown face in the TRU line.

Yaknow there is only one reasonable place to point

And a brown face?

Forgot about that issue. Sadly no brown faces on either of my Splinters. Kimono color all around.
