I didn't know those were out! Just grabbed Katara and Zukko today at Gamestop, they are having a sale on them with the others up for pre-order.
My local comic book store had them. I am really liking them so far.

Whoever they are I saw them in the clearance stuff at a couple Walmarts for like $7 each. I was digging through looking for music ones but it was just those guys.

Here ya go AdrienV.

Seeing how you like to have larger, beefier monsters for your 1/18th scale figures, I think ole Bebop will work just fine.

That's gonna work great, Salem! Gracias, brother. I hope this line goes deep into the roster of weirdos that TMNT has. It's too bad for me nobody's making actual Turtles sized to work for me. This universe is the worst possible of all.

What are the chances of a BST AXN Mouser, maybe 2-3 per pack?

These Tamashi effects work so well.

Well, that definitely makes me hesitant to pay $20 each on BBTS, but I never find the clearance stuff other Fwooshers do. :|

Was there any news regarding new Avatar figures at SDCC? I know the multi pack is coming and they revealed lots of TMNT stuff, but I cannot find any info on the Avatar figures. Do they have a rep like Diamond does or is it more of a wait and see company?

Got BeBop in on Sat and while I'm not fully impressed with him I'll get Rocksteady and will be very interested in more of the freaky guys in TMNT.

The problems with him are that simply having a shitload of joints doesn't mean he plays all that well. The double elbow hinge is 100% pointless because they (like several other companies) use joint inserts of a smaller diameter than the limb parts they're joining such that meat hits meat before it 'has' to. It's also a failure for any humanoid figure to be unable to sit down, imho. Lastly, the shoulderpads should have been glued to the vest instead of the shoulders, which *greatly* limits his arm motion. That's some amatuer-hour stuff right there, y'all.

But, I've gotten far worse figures from companies with *decades* more experience, so I'll give these guys a chance to improve over time and keep picking up whatever Big Weirdos they want to give me.

And thank you for that pic, Salem. You're a mensch!

How does Toph scale with the other Avatar figures? I haven't been able to find any reviews or comparison pictures of her so far, but she looks a little too big compared to Katara in the packaging photo of the Elemental Power 4-Pack. Does she scale better with the McFarlane figures?

Uh, how long will we have to wait for a jacket-less Rocksteady? Any chance we'll get a 10" Android for Krang to go in?

In the TMNT section, someone posted an 8” Android Krang is coming.

Except someone in the Turtles thread raised an excellent point that if they were willing to do this, then why stick to the "everyone is 5 inches" B.S. in the first place?

The Elric brothers shouldn't be the same size. If Krang can be larger, why can't Al?

Heck, the Turtles are too big to go with their villains (I don't have Bebop yet, but Shredder & Foot Soldiers are a little small compared to the four).
