    They can sense there was a repaint of the original figure in toon accurate colors where the chest was painted to looks like the shirt he wears in the toon. The question is how long until they get to that? Or will they do a different version of Shredder first seeing as they have the license for all "Classic" TMNT?

    When Super7 does toon Shredder, they can paint the torso gray, but I hope there's a soft goods or plastic tunic option. And to REALLY do it right, they can sculpt a new head and armor pieces.

    As a kid, I used 2 capes on my Shredder. One worn the normal way and the other worn the reverse way (like an apron) and tucked in his belt to simulate a tunic. I tried to do that with the Ultimates, but it didn't work with the huge, thick, wired cape. Maybe I'll go dig out my vintage cape and try it. I'm not a fan of shirtless + cape.

    Yeah, not the biggest fan of that look myself, but it's what we have from S7 right now and I'm 90% in on their stuff. Still trying to figure out how some of his armor directly attaches to his skin though... :lol

    I hope so...haha. If I know Vanilla Ice the way I think I know Vanilla Ice, I’d think he’d be all over it.

    MC Hammer and Ton Loc as Bebop and Rocksteady...haha.

    I just did some reading on Vanilla’s wiki page and watched a couple things on YouTube, and apparently he views his ties to TMNT pretty fondly. There’s even some video of him rapping to a crowd of kids during a 2016 TMNT promotional event. He seems to have a great attitude about it.

    I’m about to pull the trigger and pay scalping price for Leo and Raph Super7. Before I do...are there any bootlegs currently out to anyone’s knowledge? I’d hate to get these and they are fakes.

    No, but there might be some factory rejects floating around in China. Don't buy from an overseas seller.

    Back in 1989 I had a vinyl carry case and all 4 turtles thanks to relatives.

    You’re up S7, make me proud!

    1 more question. Is Entertainment Earth a reliable site to preorder Mike and Don?

    I'm not deep-dive collecting on the TMNT Movie line, but I would totally buy a Vanilla Ice figure.

    Does anyone think Dream EX will ever reissue their Turtles? Not sure if they have lost their license or not.

    Still striking out on the Vernon / Ratking 2 pack.

    I don't think they have the license anymore to be honest. It's a shame too, those figures were amazing. Would have loved to have seen more characters made.
