That Secret Sewer Lair is Friggin' HUGE!!!

Damn, that's going to be an impressive display piece if it actually comes to pass.

Wonder what the final scale will be and what figures I already own can "adopt" that playset ...?

Killer Croc and Grundy are going in the sewer! Maybe give Luthor a secret lab down there!

Yeah, I really like the new aesthetic direction they are taking.

Now I'm kinda excited to see the new cartoon when it launches.

And using the Elbow and Knee pads to hide the Double joints is a great idea and should lead to some wonderful posability.

Anyone see the 80's cartoon figures? I'm going to have to get a set of those, more articulation than Neca's tmnt and sweet sculpts! SQUEE! :mrgreen:

The Classics figures look fantastic, but thankfully for my wallet, I have absolutely no affinity for the old cartoon.

The new designs, that I will be all over. Did I read right, is this line in the 3.75 scale?

I wish. I couldn't be that lucky.

But this is the text from the MTV article:

Quote:
Speaking of size, each Turtle will also vary from 4.25" to 4.75" to better represent the different brothers. No completely shared bodies here, folks!


Oh, but I see you're referring to the Classics...those are 6".

Ah, I forgot momentarily how short the Turtles usually are.

So if the tallest Turtle clocks in at 4.74" (love that they're all different sizes, btw), I'm guessing the average human in the line would be 6"?

Probably more like 5", scale has never been Playmates strong suit for TMNT lines. Same for the Classics line, if the TMNT are 6" then I wouldn't be expecting the other figures to be much taller (really the TMNT should be more like 5" at most, but that almost certainly won't be the case).

That said, I'm extremely impressed with Playmates offerings. They turned designs I wasn't that bothered about into something I want to spend money on. The Nick TMNT have never looked so good, and that sewer playset is amazing!

I'm definitely in for the 4 modern versions of the Turtles, and possibly the playset contingent on price.
