My bad, Ryan--I thought you were talking about the new Classic figures but I guess you were talking about the new Basic figs based on the new show.

I always wanted to have a set of the Turtles, but missed the boat on the earlier vintage re-releases and that nice comic based box set.  I grabbed a couple of those turtles at Target this week, and they are actually pretty nicely done.  I saw both the regular and the "collector" (6") turtles at TRU today.  I thought originally I'd want to get the collector versions, but the smaller ones are pretty spiffy too.  Our daughter has been playing with the smaller version ones, and they are actually pretty nice toys.  They aren't really "cartoony" like the upcoming toon look, and I kind of like the look of them - sort of comic booky in a way.

Ordinarily, I'd be interested in the Turtles but woud pass on them due to budget and space and stuff.

But, seeing as how I only have like 8 more Star Wars basic figures coming the rest of the year and a small smattering of exclusives (thanks, K-mart!) left to buy, I'm really tempted to pick up a set of the basic four.   :-\

Funny how a lack of SW stuff can make a nerd collection look even more sad.  :D

I actually was mapping out maybe picking up another 1:16 tank thanks to the lack of new anything pretty much till 2013...  It wasn't even on my radar till the "final wave" was knocked down to online only.  When army building isn't even an option, much less a longshot, it makes you look at other things to waste money on really fast.

Why not turtles?

I just used one of those $5 off coupons to start my turtle collection.  I nabbed Michalangelo this morning for like $4.25 or something after tax - nice!  I am going to go back tonight for more I think.

I have visited all of my family members to print off coupons   ;D

So, for those of you who are picking these up, are you opting for the new, smaller (from the upcoming toon I guess) Turtle figures, or the 6" collector ones (which I've only seen at TRU so far)?  Both look nice in their own ways, but part of me almost likes the smaller ones better - even though the "collector" figures are sort of based on the cartoons I remember.

the new ones - so they are still similar in scale to the majority of everything else I collect

I actually picked up Donatello in both scales. I really dont see myself picking up any others (unless they do an awesome classic version of Casey Jones) so felt comfortable in knowing that my TMNT buying is done.

I saw all 3 of the new figures at TRU on Saturday and I left them there.  They wanted $10 for each of them now so I will hold off until they go on a good sale.  Out of the 3 I thought the fish dude looked the best.  The dog guy looked like a giant, heavy hunk of plastic - not much going on there imo.

I finally caught the new show and think I'll cave on the 4 turtles now - sick of leaving them behind everytime I see them.  TRU had some Buy 3 get one free sale last week but they were $12-$13 a piece but comes out to about even with WM's $7.77 price. 

4 turtles and I'm walking away......
