If I'm honest I'd only buy Mezco turtles if they had Mezco original designs, not anything drastic just something different.
Me too... or maybe the IDW design, which nobody is doing at the moment
Right?! I wonder why no one is doing these yet. Given that tons of companies have some form of the license, I suppose the question is “who will be doing IDW?”

From what I understood Crashbox makes dioramas for Mezco's product shots...so who knows?

(probably it is going to be a Gomez figure, or maybe a Killer Croc...)

Really hoping this set gets announced soon. I’m tired of looking for the NECA ones lol.

As frustrating as they've been, $50 for two figures is still better than $80 for one...

100% agree! I dont need more movie and tv turtles. I need comic or original designs. For once I want the Mez flare xD

Price is definitely better on the Necas. But you have to find them. If Mezco does a 4 figure set that I can just order I’ll do that. Yeah, I won’t be saving any money but I also won’t be burning gas looking for them or paying double MSRP.

Don't forget that the movie NECA's are 7 inch scale. If MEZCO does their own take they'll be 6 inch scale.

I think they're going to be Mezco originals, but IDW would be interesting. If they do a Last Ronin figure that would get my money. If I'm wrong and it's more toon figures or more movie figures then I'll be able to hopefully pass without too much hesitation.

I've more or less stopped paying attention to NECA because 1) the articulation is pretty crap, and 2) I really really hate the stress of trying to find them in the first place. So i switched to Super7, which I LOVE in concept, but the articulation is also crap, and it's out of scale with everything else I have.

This may be the line for me. I'm going to try to resist getting more turtles (I'm still happy with the S.H.Figuarts cartoon versions), but I'd LOVE to see what Mezco does for comic/cartoon characters like Shredder, Casey Jones, Usagi Yojimbo, and bad mutants. They could really blow us away. I hope they're not going for movie versions, because I don't really think they'll be able to do THAT much better than NECA already is.

If they make stocky mirage turtles with alt heads for idw or 2003 looks, and a matching Casey and April, count me in.

I'd be amazed if Mezco went any further than the 4 Turtles. So for me the deciding factors will be cost and design.

Definitely intrigued though. I can't see them doing movie based (NECA are pretty much gold standard there and not much Mezco could really add as there's very little costume). Comic based seem most likely, either IDW (as they have a bit more to the designs) or their own reinterpretation.
