I've got the first set pre-ordered for 4th quarter 2021. The second set is the variants, but that's is in stock right now. I'm tempted to just get that one instead because I'm getting excited to have these. Though it'll be a while before I put them up for display, I want to get at least the four Turtles before I put them up, so I guess I could wait til the end of the year.
Only difference should be the color of the weapons racks according to Brian from Super 7.

None. Some people speculate that joints may have been improved in regards to friction and insertion, but it's all anecdotal.

I encourage everyone to hit up Super7 and recommend they include an alternate head with Leatherhead. It doesn't make sense why they would do it for so many characters and not him.

Too much plastic. He has a larger head than other characters. Only needs hinged jaw.

I'd rather recommend something like articulated eyebrows. As weird as they are, you can squeeze two or three extra emotions out of him just with placement. And an opportune time to throw in swappable green ones in case your biggest gripe about the vintage figure was an alligator having eyebrows.

Sometimes I wondered if that vest wasn't a vest but an organic part of his body sort of like dinosaur feathers...

I made a quick checklist of the figures I owned as a kid, outside of the million different Turtles variants which I did have a bunch of. Like the variants where they're all playing sports or whatever.

At this point, I'm just need Super 7 to make Slash and the Rat King and I'll be set.

Was Metalhead a good guy in the cartoon? I haven't watched the original series in decades, but I remember him as a villain, I think because he's a boss in Turtles in Time. Speaking of Turtles in Time, I wouldn't mind them making Tokka and Rahzar as well. If we got Slash and Rat King, getting those four would give us all the Turtles in Time bosses.

I think he was reprogrammed or something.

Yup. Started out as a villain, was reprogrammed by Donatello.

Somebody on another board speculated Wave 6 would be:

Space Cadet Raph
Slash
Rat King

And since Flynn said around wave 6, we'd be getting "concept figures" that never got a vintage toy, Dreadmon or Jagwar since waves 4 and 5 have started to go hard on Mutanimals.

From there, I could see Wave 7 being:

Undercover Don
Wingnut and Screwloose
Groundchuck
Armaggon

Wave 8:

Sewer Surfin' Mike
Jagwar/Dreadmon (whichever didn't make wave 6)
Scratch
Triceraton

I doubt Rat King and Slash in one wave. Those two are both kinda heavy hitters, so they'll probably be split up.

You don't think we'll see any Channel 6 team in the next wave?

My favorite turtle alternate appearance is space cadet Ralph.

My favorite yet-to-be announced villains is Scumbug.

I hope we don't see Channel 6 team members for a few years honestly. Are people wanting them?

Won't the Neca line scratch that itch for folks who are interested in them?

I don't understand why people would want them. Not on my list at all. But for those who do, hope they eventually get them.

Yeah I don't need them in this line because I prefer them cartoon accurate.

By the time the Toon Turtles wave came out, I think I had moved on from Ninja Turtles to X-Men. So I don't have any nostalgia tied to toys of those characters: http://www.tmnttoys.com/93figures/toons/index.html

I would love a Toon Shredder variant, though I don't know if that would be stepping on NECA's toes based on the licensing they've agreed to: http://www.tmnttoys.com/93figures/toons/5411.htm
