    This was one of the more unique and interesting releases, and I wish it hadn't been a limited release fig. There's potential here to outfit them with any number of accessories and color schemes for different applications, and they'd probably sell better than some of the critter boxes, as they make sense as an industrial robot that can consolidate into cube form for space efficiency. If they create a small cargo plane or chopper, also made up of a couple Megabox figs, then you have a nice play pattern that's incorporative. I hope they consider it, even if it means eschewing the die cast for plastic, which would likely hold up better over time anyway.

    Love the new beetle mold, but I didn't like the red and gold color scheme. I've got the blue one POed, and I'm excited for it. I keep hoping they'll eventually do a dragonfly, and maybe even a butterfly. If they could make the butterfly triple change into a caterpillar, that would be glorious.:drool:

    Good for those that want the Heroes in the Half Shell, however not my thing.

    Still waiting for the Kirin, octopus/tako and the upcoming recoloured Mantis.

    I'm waiting for Donatello. Still undecided who (if anyone) I should buy for a second one.

    Seems to have a high hit rate for paint chipping.

    The turtles look cool, but I'm not sure if I want to invest that much on them. I was expecting two packs similar to the combiner monkeys.

    But now I can't help but wonder who or what is MB-17? Another Tukuru box?

    I'm not a huge fan of TMNT, but maaan the ability of their cubes to also combine in their vehicle might push me over the edge...

    For some reason, Raphael is usually portrayed without any pupil.

    Tho in the PS2 game they all doesn't have a pupil.

    I'm still waiting for the Mooncake~

    Personal opinion, the turtles are a bit too stumpy in the air body. If they could've, they should've added an extension to their main body

    I think their bodies are a little too wide, and their legs are set apart really wide.
