MONDO: TMNT

Fri Jul 31, 2020 1:41 pm

Was going through some rough times when Leo was originally released, but would really like to pick one up eventually. Obviously these are on ebay, but they're pricy. Does anyone know if they're still available through any online retailers?

Also, what are the odds these are ever released in a smaller scale, even as bootlegs? Despite loving the cartoon and movie NECAs, these are still my favorite sculpts and reflect the variety (later Mirage) of TMNT I'm most into. I would kill for these in a 6 or 7 inch scale, even if they were bootlegs.

By the way, I know there used to be a Mondo TMNT thread here, but it seems to have disappeared with the downtime. Hopefully it's okay to start a new thread.

Oh, man, I would kill for a whole line of these in 1/12 scale. Which, I mean, is kinda basically NECA's Mirage line (short & exclusive as it was), but with more accessories & swappable hands & heads.

Do you have any comic shops near you? I used to still see these hanging around one near my work in Boston, but that was back in March. I've been on a work from home plan ever since, so I can't say if they're still kicking around or not, but checking local might be your best bet if you can.

For me, the allure is that these look like the slightly later Mirage models. I've always much preferred the stockier, short necked Mirage look, which is reflected here. I've always wanted a Mirage Leo with that body type and chest straps, but it seems like anytime someone does the Mirage style, they opt for the first appearance look. I always hoped NECA would expand the line to include that later look for the Turtles, but they haven't done it (yet).

The cool thing about these is that, in addition to capturing that look, they also bring in aspects of the original toy line with the colored bandanas. So you can kind of have the best of both world. For me, just visually, this is exactly what I picture when I think of the turtles in my head. Basically, the movie particulars (brown belts, kneepads, etc) with the comic styling.

Interesting. I do have some comic shops, but I've never seen these figures there. I also haven't been since the pandemic began. Perhaps I should take another look.

Amazon has Leo for 215, which is a price I'm probably willing to pay if it comes to that.

I bought all four turtles from BigBadToyStore last year, seemed like they were getting clearance, if I remember correctly I paid $65 for Leo and a little more the other 3. You can check BBTS, but I think they are gone at this time.
