Check it out, dude and dudettes– Super7 just released images of their Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Wave One series of action figures. Preorders will start October 1st and close October 31st. If they don’t update their website fast enough, us Wizards will make sure we link with a secondary channel for preorder goodness.
The first wave includes Raphael, Splinter, Baxter Stockman, and a Foot Soldier. All of them are really nicely detailed and painted and come with many extra accessories. Just the number of accessories and extra hands with each toy tips me off that this will likely be another wave of $45 action figures, much like the Thundercats toys that Super7 recently revealed.
These are seven inch figures, which trust me, is more toy than you think. The NECA Toys turtle line are also seven inches and it’s a lot of toy. There will definitely be people out there saying that between the NECA Turtles, and the Playmates reissues and re-releases, how many versions of the original 90s toys do we need? The answer to that is as many as these toy companies will release. It’s fascinating to see each toy company’s take on the item, and now it’s Super7’s turn to show off their prowess. Remember, casual fan, there are people who want to collect every Turtle in the freakin’ room. There are also fans of that particular brand that will just collect Super7 because it’s Super7.
Besides…if someone out there has a problem with the continual reissuing of classic toy, comic, and 80s cartoon Turtles, go ahead and buy those new ones that are clogging up the shelves at Walmart. Because really, there’s plenty to choose from there!
