    Could be a preorder and then you’re only paying like $40 for an NRD.

    Probably not but still.

    All the heads except for Raphael look a bit off. NECA has me covered on the 6 sets of toon turtles I already have.

    Ok, I’m not a big Mezco hater, quite the opposite, but this set sucks.

    It has less stuff for the same price. What the fuck?

    You couldn’t give all four Turtles a trenchcoat?

    Yeah the wide open eyes don't work for me (and Don has 2/3 heads with them)
    Still FOMO because of the last set will probably have this sell like hotcakes no matter what.

    Actually a dumb move on Mezco’s part. The Figuarts and Neca versions are more accurate to the animation in both size and proportions.
    The Mezco version is completely wrong for the concept and late to the party.

    Donatello being the only one to not have an angry head is also a pretty dumb mistake.

    They could have done four trenchcoats and hats for each turtle. They already have them sized from the previous Raphael.

    Less stuff than the previous set, same price.

    $400 upfront with like 15 minutes notice is asinine.

    This was a huge swing and a miss. I’m not sure why Mezco even bothered when all they had to do was make the turtles the same color, give them red bandanas, and keep everything else the same. They literally did more than they needed to for no benefit.

    Why would any company want to compete with NECA on the toon turtle front? Many have tried, all have failed.

    Neca basically has the toon turtle line locked down, Mezco needed to knock it out of the park if it wanted to compete. This toon set for $400+ by Mezco is okay, but not enough to replace the Neca turtles or even have a second set.

    This entire concept is just failure stacked on top of failure. I genuinely question what the everloving fuck Mez was thinking.

    I mean lets be honest, riding the wave of the last release selling out everywhere, this is going to sell fine and ship out right away (so no preorder jitters causing people to cancel). For Mez it seems like a slam dunk to me. All the people who missed out on the first one will get FOMO and buy this up even if they just got the pizza turtles from Target.

    I'll stick to trying to find Raph and Donny pizza club turtles. Not a fan of the wide open eyes

    That’s one thing with Mez honestly. It’s either the company does outstanding figures or it just outright “What in world is Mez thinking?” (basically shooting for the stars and hoping everything goes accordingly to plan or its a total flop).

    All they needed to do was just make the bodies the same color, make the masks red, re-release.

    Or what I’m hoping for, black and white with red masks.

    The worst part about these TMNT is whatever figures they do next, like Casey, are going to be designed to go with that original release. So you just have four cartoon TMNT that don’t go with anything.

    Unless they plan on doing every TMNT figure they make as a half-ass cartoon one and then, well… they are a bit late to hop on the TMNT train imo.

    These 2 posts above speak the truth. Mezco does something amazing but then make 3 other puzzling decisions on top of pissing off their hardcore fan base.

    I’m sort of surprised but not they’re still available. With the smooth heads and textured bodies they look like the bad cosplayers from Times Square or Vegas. I like the toy style belts but not worth the price for those. There’s a few cool accessories like the pizza but there’s those guys who sell parts I’ll look at. People noticed right away it has a lot less for the same price. Now if it had 4 trenches and hats I’d be looking into pay in 4 options today.

    The comments sections have been hilarious on fb groups and their pages. Hard pass was one then a guy replied well don’t be asking for a reasonable price when they sell out. Another store went under and left people hanging with no set or refund and someone was like hey there’s a new set in stock but they didn’t like the set. Even Paige’s group which is usually positive had a lot of trashing comments for the set.
