Well, you saw the reveal on Tuesday, had your chance to pre-order them yesterday (sold out!), and now we have some early pictures for you!
Yeah, I know, you have seen Matthew K’s awesome pictures already because, well, he did the photography for the actual box for this set! As always, Matt knocked it out of the park, but, having this final product in-hand now, the figures have been knocked out of the park too. Yes, we have been waiting for Shredder, the Foot Ninjas, and the Foot Elite figures for AGES to go with our Eastman & Laird Turtles, but I can tell you it was worth every minute of it.
This set is remarkably well done, and the quality is really, really nice. I mean, the SDCC 16-Bit set is nice, but this is actually even better, with all of the paint applications being on point, the plastic being strong, and the articulation smooth but tight with a great range of motion. The Horsemen did great work on the sculpts for these so many years ago, so they look like the stepped off of the page, but the paint applications are what really drive these home because the two-dimensional style has been recreated here perfectly.
I know, I know, what more can I say about this at this point? This set is awesome, and it so cool that NECA has been able to continue the TMNT legacy they started so long ago. Sure, these releases are confined to the Cons, but the fact that these were available for order is a step forward, and I cannot wait to see what NECA has in store next for the Turtles. This set is going to be REALLY tough to beat!
Here are the pics!
