    I checked eBay but am having trouble getting a good idea from there...

    I've got the 4 original Ninja Turtles (the 4 turtles themselves) with the soft heads (were these recalled?) from 1988. All 4 are MOSC, the cards themselves in OK condition (intact, but a little bent/wobbly though not floppy).

    Can anyone give me a ballpark price I could ask for the set of 4?

    Thanks all! :)

    Well now, that's like saying that original G1 figures aren't worth anything because they've been reissued. The reissued turtles don't have the soft heads, so I imagine they are definitely worth something.

    How to make a Bayformer in 3 easy steps:
    1: Acquire any non-Bay related Transformer.
    2: Smash repeatedly with a hammer.
    3: Glue shattered pieces back together with your feet.


    How to make a classic Transformer in 4 easy steps:
    1: Take cardboard boxes.
    2: Stack them in humanoid shape.
    3: Spraypaint them red/white/silver/blue.
    4: Cast Frank Welker.

    That's fun!
    The biggest problem with Bay's movies are the scripts, not the robotic designs.

    Whoa, hey now, I get in enough hot water around here just posting occasionally in movie-related threads, I don't need trouble following me into one's about TMNT...

    ...however, since you insist, I will say that I think it takes more talent to make a design and toy work within the limitations of a boxy aesthetic than to just piece one together out of a bunch of random shapes and parts. For instance, I bet a lot more people will identify a silhouette of G1 Prime over movie Prime any day of the week. I think less is more in this case. The movie designs are WAY over-complicated and I don't believe they will age well at all...

    ...I'm sorry, I blacked out there for a minute, what just happened?
