    They wont be accurate to the original Mirage comics if they're colored or if I can tell them apart without their weapons.

    So you want black and white figures? I'm pretty sure they will go with a color scheme similar to how they were colored on the comic book covers, with red bandannas on all of them:

    I'll definitely be getting these guys... if I can find them. I don't actually mind a lot of Playmates' TMNT stuff, but some more collector-oriented stuff is something I'm sure I'll like.

    Hell yeah!!!!
    I love the old Turtles from the late 70's they were all weapons masters of several weapons and was very hard to tell them apart.Lots of bloodshed and great story.The original Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird Turtles will always be #1

    Late 70's? You must be talking about a different set of talking Turtles since their issue first issue didnt come out till 1984 ;) . I will definately be getting these figures!

    Man, the sculpt looks pretty cool! I will have to see more of this series' line-up before deciding whether I should go into this line.

    That looks incredible!! They all better have red bandanas and brown kneepads. They could do the usual changing the mouths (like they always have) to tell them apart.

    I'd love to see some blood splatter on them, too!! [​IMG]

    Well that was my point, without their weapon belts they'd all look alike, technically you could include all four weapons with one and get every turtle in one figure... I don't want them black and white, I'm just interested in how each are going to differ from each other. The sculpt is nice, though, going to be pretty cool.

    Though, a black and white variant might be interesting.
