Not sure if anyone here cares about/collectors Turtles stuff, but I happened across these pics of the new line (that will accompany the new TV show on Nickelodeon later this year).  Not too bad really:

New Turtles Toys

I really only have the Turtles figs from when I was a kid, but always enjoyed that stuff back then.  It was one of those lines that was sort of hitting towards the end of the toy buying kid years I think, so I only had the turtles and no one else.

That's a big ass, but fairly simple, playset they got there.

I was a big fan of Eastman and Laird's original B&W TMNT comics, but the storylines got lame by the time they started making figures and cartoons.  The core four turtles shown look pretty nice with updated articulation, though I probably wouldn't shell out money for the line just due to lack of space.  If I found them on the cheap at some point though... :P  Definite pass on the vehicles and playsets, but they look kid friendly.

These new figures look very nice - both the classic and the modern versions - very nice

I heard that these figures are 4 1/2" tall.  Not 3 3/4".  Anyone seen this?

The old TMNT line was the first bunch of figures I collected religiously as a kid, so I am all over these. Here's hoping they do another series of the classics with Bebop, Rocksteady, Krang and all those other weirdos. Love it!

Is there any confirmation as to the scale of these TMNT figures?

I am all over this at 3 3/4" - 4".  All.  Over.  It.

I'm not down for any at 6".

6" only, I wish it was 4" too.  I will still get these and if sucessful they will do more like Shredder, Splinter etc.

These are all over now.  I picked up the four turtles, which is enough for me, but they're really great little figures.  I love the designs on the turtles.  Krang and the Foot Soldier are okay.  Splinter, Shredder, and April...not so much.

But the updates to the main four are pretty sweet.

Roughly in scale with the vintage line.  Closer to 5".  Definitely bigger than 3.75".  I don't have them in front of me right now, but I'd guess the Turtles are around 4- 5". In the packages, Shredder looks the biggest. He's close to 5".
