That’s a custom.

And I’m sure that Casey is coming.

This head swapping gimmick is a cool idea in theory, but just looks off in so many ways.

The comic turtles are starting to hit Walmarts. We had these at my store yesterday.

If they had the same skintone & I didn't have to buy a $10 comic, sure.

I love individual skin colors, but I don't like Raph being darker than Leo (L-Olive, D-Brown, R-Forest, M-Evergreen).

Looks like BST AXN is getting an 8 inch Krang. Expected in January. Looks to be around $35.

So if they are willing to do different sizes after all… why didn’t they just do this from the start, instead of butchering scale and hiding behind “everything is 5”, it’s by design” when asked?

Makes me even more salty about the way too small Alphonse from Full Metal Alchemist.

If I had to guess, I'd say that they originally planned on keeping everything at the exact 5 inch scale, but feedback from customers made them change it. I know that the 5 inch only thing is what kept me from getting any of their figures. I'm seriously debating getting this new Krang figure for display purposes.

I would guess that, much like the vintage line, they just felt Krang's body warranted some additional sizing. The rest they're clearly fine with keeping them at the same size.
