Best toy EVER!Jul 22, 2012
First let me say that I am huge TMNT fan and have been since 1984. I have seen alot of renditions of these guys over the years, and have pretty much got just about all of them. With some frustration I always wanted to have the versions from the very first comic series, but they never came out until I was way older (NECA version). I automatically got those and have been pretty happy over the last couple years. Of course things change, and of course with nothing being original any more, the bigwigs decided to yet recycle another old hit series. I personally have no problems IF it is done right. Generally though, they never are (with some exceptions of course). So when I heard that they were gonna reboot the turtles again, it sparked my interest a smidge but I had to see more. Upon seeing the new turtle design, I was absolutely hooked! They actually did it completely right, and I was extremely impressed! Then the wait started with me checking just about every month looking for these awesome looking figures. Finally the wait ended as I ventured to a local Target and actually had an employee dig them (the 5 inch figures) out the back. As they hit my hands, I couldn't believe what I was looking at! It was probably one of the most exciting feelings that I had in a long time. I couldn't believe it. I was a kid all over again! Sounds super immature, but who cares? I then made my way home and instantly opened up these awesome figures. Happy as happy can be, I just kept looking at them and admired everything all the way down to the box! Inside the box is where I found more trouble. A small folded pamphlet showing future products that they are releasing in the near future. Low and behold......11 INCH TURTLES!!!! Holy jeebs!!! Trying to kill my excitement, I just told myself that the 5 inch figures were enough. But upon looking at them some more, I couldn't resist looking for them. Well that didn't take too long considering that the very next time I hit Toys R Us, there they were. Staring right at me, I couldn't resist (again). Only able to get one at the time, I picked up Mikey, and was kinda content with just the one. After losing some sleep over having just one (yes I actually had a bothered sleep), I instantly woke up wanting another. So I caved and got Don. I now had two. The next day I caved again and got Leo. A few hours later, I caved one last time finishing off the collection and got Raph. Done!
Now that I got my whole story out (maybe you care, maybe you don't), I just wanted to tell you why I decided to tell you the whole thing. Well simply put, these figures are probably the most awesome thing I have seen in a long while. And I will tell you why now.
First I would like to point out that each turtle is an original sculpt! Yes you heard right. Each turtle has his own design from height to overall size! Don is the tallest and lengthiest of them all. Leo is just a smidge smaller than Don and is a little bit wider. Raph is shorter and stalkier. And last but not least, Mikey is the shortest of them all being the runt of the litter.
Each has their weapons which are actually painted (unlike their smaller counterparts) and some extra weapons which are unfortunately not. But who cares, nobody will be using those anyways. The cool thing is that you can actually hide those extra weapons under their shells!!! The stuff actually fits exactly like they're suppose to also!
Now that I have said all of these positives, unfortunately I will have to point out a couple negatives now.
First I have to point out that the arms do not bend at the elbows, which is kinda of a letdown. I don't understand why they would do this considering the smaller ones do have movement there, why can't the bigger ones have moving elbows?
Second complaint is the expression (well just two of them). While both Don and Mikey have good expression, Raph and Leo's are kinda goofy. Not a huge quirk, but it just kinda bugged me a little bit.
Third complaint (which is a huge one!) is color! I will just go ahead and say that I do not have any problems with Don, Leo, or Mikey's color. But Raphs! It just kinda rubs me the wrong way. He's just too dark compared to the others to the point where he looks like he's not related! I know that sounds a little turtle racist, but that's not what I'm going for. It's just that these guys are suppose to be brothers, and while 3 of them have somewhat similar coloring, Raph is just way off. It just makes him look like he doesn't belong. Like he's a toy from a different line or something. Plus the green he sports makes him look very cheep, while the others look like a higher end version. Maybe people can deal with it, but it just bothers me a little bit. Again, please don't get the nerve to say that I am a racist. We're talking about turtles now.
Anyways, all and all, these figures (despite their certain quirks) are extremely awesome! Do not skip out on them whatsoever! I have a feeling that these will not be available for very long, and as a fan, nobody should miss these. Yes even Raph! Despite his off color, I couldn't live without him in my collection. He's just an individual which in some ways makes him unique!
But if you are only ale to pick one up at a time, or just want the best one, I will list the order of which I think looks the best.
1) It's a tie between Don and Leo. Both look pretty good, but I personally like Dons expression a little bit more while Leo's proportions look a smidge better.
Do not miss out on these guys! More awesomeness can always be inside your collection. I am truly excited to actually own these guys. They are sure to put a smile on anybodies face.
Before I go, I would like to point out that I am an extreme old school guy that would have liked to see all of the turtles sport their original red bandanas, but with kids getting confused, I do know why they switched up the colors. These guys (of course) do have their own respected colors which I personally think could benefit with some red paint on all of them. Just for the purists!
Oh also, one more thing. The 11 inch figures also have eyeballs you can see unlike the whited out smaller 5 inch figures. Again, this can be resolved with some white paint. I personally think they eyes give them character. Plus I have the best of both worlds haing both sizes.
Enough talk. GET THEM NOW BEFORE THE COLLECTORS RUIN IT ALL WITH THEIR JACKED UP PRICES!!

I got this for my Grandson. He was absolutely thrilled with this toy and he carries it all the time along with the other 3 I got for him. He has the full set of 4. This was a great purchase and would recommend buying for others.
Awesome figure for kids and kids at heart!Mar 29, 2013
By A. Villegas
I have been a fan of the Turtles for a long time now and used to have the original figures. They come up witn new toys every so often, and I never really cared for them, but the "battle shell turtles" are awesome!
I collected all 4 of them, they look impressive on my display shelf, each of them was sculpted distinctly to give them different heights and their skin and shell colors are all slightly different, so it doesn't feel like they were all pressed from the same mould.
They are pretty sturdy too and should stand up to the beatings of a kid at play.
I will definitely be making a few modifications because I bought them for display (cleaning the flash from some parts, repainting the messy job done on the bandages, painting a little bit more detail on their weapons). One thing's for sure, some toys I buy then get bored with after a little while, but with these guys, the longer I have them, the more I love them!

2012 SDCC Exclusive TMNT 11" FiguresNov 28, 2012
I remember seeing these figures at a comic store on melrose and they where selling all 4 for a high price. I had no idea that they were being sold at a much cheaper price at toys r us o target, and when I found out it was kinda late and I wasn't able to find them. So I got them from Amazon for about $5 to $10 more and I'm happy with it. I love the turtles and I didn't mind to spend a couple of bucks more to get my hands on them. If you're a Ninja Turtles fan I would say buy them before they're gone for good ; )
Good Quality, Nice vibrant colors(Different skin tones), Great face expressions and different heights, beautiful packaging.
