I have zero nostalgia for the Playmates releases, but I want a werewolf turtle. The purpose of this line, to me anyways, is to combine the form of a ninja turtle with the monsters. Casey or April is unappealing to me as monsters, but a were-turtle-wolf hybrid? Sign me up!

I think the trickiest thing for some of them would be making them look like they did mutate into a monster and not look like they’re wearing a Halloween costume. Bride April from the old line kinda gives a costume vibe. But if they wanted to do her there are not a lot of options for female monsters. But I kinda want a bride so I don’t know. I think Dracula Donnie looked too much like a Halloween costume so he came out looking goofy and not monstrous. Why I think shredder could make a much a more badass Dracula. Since Neca isn’t following the playmates line, Donnie won’t be Dracula anyway and I feel like a Dracula has to be made. So come on series 2 please.

That's the same issue as people are pointing out about Sprlinter/Werewolf. The original look has many of the same elements of the monster, so it's not much of a stretch.

This concept is much cooler than the figure. They said “lastly” in the caption so they may not have access to series 2 concept art. They were getting them directly through Mirage with artist permission so series 2 may have been done by someone else.

I want green-furred werewolves!
I wouldn't mind updates of these either, but that ship sailed too:

He kind of reminds me of the Bay turtles. Hard to get scarier than that.

Definitely weird but I’m down for the whole collection. I really think a series two has to happen to get the popular monsters all out. Was not really expecting another turtle monster reveal so this is exciting.

I hope he has holes cut through his shell for his swords instead of proper holsters. They did find a way to make him look interesting though. I know some weren’t excited by the reveal that they were going with this character. Also, sounds like we shouldn’t expect preorders to open quickly like they did with Raphenstein.

IG caption describes him as Ygor rather than Quasimodo, for what it's worth.

Neca just confused the crap out of me. I assumed when the listing said hunchback that they are doing the hunchback of notre dame. Because you know that’s a separate “monster” with its own movie. But their caption says Ygor the hunchback. So I guess it’s Frankenstein’s monster followed by Ygor. Now I’m wondering if they are just going to make Donnie doctor Frankenstein.

I don't think I ever expected the Hunchback to actually be Ygor from Son of Frankenstein rather than Quasimoto. That's actually a really awesome deep cut.
