I hope they are smart enough to re-release original turtles at least.
We'll see a Turtle re-release at minimum, and maybe even new sculpts because the originals are ~15 years old now.

Like you said, the demand is there, so there's no way they don't start a "new" line without the Turtles themselves included.

I really think we are getting the green & yellow Mirage Aprils tho. I really don't think that was a goof on the visual guide, although its not that exciting. After those, I'd really like to see a mirage Casey & Leatherhead. I wouldn't be surprised to also see some Mirage Triceratons. Not many mutants in the original comics, so I think its a little limited.

Definitely excited for the return of Mirage figures. I need re-releases of April, Shredder, and the Foot. I was not collecting at the time and missed them. Not that I had much chance at the NYCC exclusives anyway.

Agreed. I'm crossing my fingers for the yellow April, because I would rather get that mold again than the current toon one. I passed on that 2 pack entirely. Karai and an Utrom suit need to happen too. An articulated Fugitoid would be amazing, but the Vac metal statue works for me for now.

Now that you say that...blue April & the Mouser pack weren't on that checklist. You could say that's because they were con exclusives only, but so was the Foot set. But THAT was on there...

Hmmm......

Every other visual guide had a reveal on it and I think the rest of the new Mirage stuff might not be ready enough to show, so they just teased those unreleased Aprils will finally come out. NECA loves to release stuff years after we thought it would never come out. But i'm not sure how they will be released, maybe the yellow and green Aprils will be loot crate exclusives?

I’m expecting an April as a Loot Crate, and hoping she still comes with Mousers (though if they’re doing a bonus figure again, making it 4 Mousers wouldn’t bother me). We’ll probably see more Mirage at Toy Fair since it’s being solicited to online and comic shops. Looks like, based on the arcade release schedule, the first Mirage releases will either be summer or Q3. It’ll be interesting to see if they jump right into new stuff, or if they first do re-releases.

More Mirage figures coming soon, this year. I hope that we get Bloodsucker, Terrorpin, & Pimiko.

I was just super excited to hear Veebs & Trevor talk about Archie, and Trevor wanting to do it, even if it isn't necessarily in the license yet.

Awww yeah! Very excited for the news about new Mirage stuff. Plenty of things I’d like to see from the books, but I really, really hope they finally release Turtles from around the time of the Leonardo One Shot. Bulkier, with longer headbands, no ties on the belts, and straps for Leonardo.

Seems like all the Mirage product focuses on the first appearance look, but to me those slightly later versions are the definitive looks for the Turtles. The Mondo ones were awesome, but I’m really hoping we finally get these looks in a more manageable scale.

Yeah, I definitely hope NECA moves on to different looks for the turtles. The first appearance look has been done, let's see something that matches the issues after. My ideal want would be the way they looked on the issue #4 cover, but that's probably my nostalgia from playing the NES game with that cover on it too.

If the molds for those first ones WERE stolen, they will have to be redone anyway, so they might as well give us a different look to maximize interest from even those that have any of the first 3 releases.
