HEY-O!! *duh-dum-chhhhhh*

I'm totally in for these. We are an action figures and Pop figures household. I was thinking, maybe they couldn't get Judith Hoag's likeness rights so they just tossed in a cartoon April? But then I thought: do they even need to get likeness rights for Pop figures?

They do not need likeness rights. It is why there are Pops for so many properties that don't have action figures. They only need rights for the general property.

If this was 2019, Funko would absolutely have made everyone, including Judith Hoag and Tatsu and some random Foot Soldier that was in one 2 second scene and four variations of each turtle.

But Covid hit Funko especially hard, so they have massively scaled back. They cancelled some product and moved more to 2021, plus laid off a sizable portion of staff. Stores are where they primarily sell, especially Hot Topic and GameStop and other mall stores, so those stores just not ordering due to closures hit them hard.

I'm fairly certain I have a toon Pop April, so I'm hoping I don't need that one (rerelease, hopefully?), but they're in storage, so I can't be sure at the moment, and BBTS pre-sold out before I even got the e-mail. :|

Still need toon Casey, I know that much.

there is and existing toon April Pop, but she's impossible to obtain now and rendered in their earlier, more simplistic style. this one is brand new and a bit more detailed - I'd be happy to have both Aprils, tbh lol, but I'll survive with just this new one!

BBTS was out of stock on April within an hour of the email being sent out - lame - so I had to go through BigAppleCollectibles. Seen 'em advertised many places but never actually ordered from them. hope they'll be good for it! lol
