NECA Debuts 1/4 Scale 1990 Movie Donatello Action Figure at Toy Fair

If the recently revealed statues from Prime 1 Studios don't fit your budget (or your display space), it seems like NECA has a "compromise" to offer you. Depending on your collecting habits, it might not even be much of a compromise.

The first of a planned series of four, NECA's 1990 movie-style Donatello stands approximately 16.5" and features 30 points of articulation, including double knee joints. With an incredibly detailed sculpt, he comes with bo staff accessory and interchangeable hands.

Watch for Donatello to hit specialty toy retailers around June for about $100. The remaining Turtles should then be released one a quarter.

Prime 1 Studio Debuts 1990 TMNT Movie Statues at Tokyo Wonder Festival

Hey, everyone! Forgive me for a bunch of delayed reporting that is going to be coming your way in upcoming days. I took a little vacation and am now just getting back into the swing of things. And with Toy Fair happening in New York, plus other events, there's quite a bit of news to share!

Let's start with these pretty impressive 1/4 scale statues from Prime 1 Studio, which were on display recently in Tokyo at Wonder Festival. Of course, the really exciting thing about these is that they're based on the 1990 movie costumes by Jim Henson.

Prime 1 Studio has previously offered 1/4 scale statues of the 2014 movie Turtles, at a MSRP of $699-$749. These new statues will most likely be similarly priced, so they are definitely an investment. But if you are looking to add these to your collection, watch for them later this year from retailers such as Sideshow Collectibles.

TMNT Guide to Comic-Con 2011

San Diego Comic-Con 2011 cometh!! And with it, an exciting line-up of TMNT events and promotions. The three biggest items of note are the plans for IDW's convention floor booth, the "Mutation in Progress" private TMNT event on Friday, July 22, and Kevin Eastman's reissue of his TMNT 25th anniversary book.

  • Visitors to Comic-Con can pick up a free ashcan of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and get an early look at the upcoming August release for the new series.
  • Members of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles will be signing at the IDW booth, #2643.
  • TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES Ashcan (FREE) will be available at the IDW booth, #2643, during Comic-Con, while supplies last.
  • TMNT "Launch Party" at the IDW booth on Saturday, from 1:00pm-2:00pm. Kevin Eastman, Dan Duncan, and Tom Waltz will be signing the ashcan comic.

    Per usual, TMNT co-creator Kevin Eastman will spend much of the Con at the Heavy Metal booth (#1529). As previously reported, Kevin will be selling the reissue of his TMNT 25th Anniversary book, with four different covers available. And if you ask him nicely, he'll probably draw a picture in it for you.

    Kevin will also be signing at the Hero Initiative booth (#5003) on two occasions:
    Friday, July 22 - 5:30pm-7:00pm
    Saturday, July 23 - 11:30am-1:00pm

    Look for Mirage Studios artist Michael Dooney to be selling and drawing art in Artists' Alley (#DD-22) throughout the weekend.

    Expect the upcoming Shredder comiquette statue to be on display, somewhere within their massive floor space (#1929 - This is almost right next to the Heavy Metal booth).

    As previously reported, this event will be on Friday and a ticket is required. Fans will be treated to a one hour preview of Nickelodeon's up-coming TMNT CGI series, as well as the new toys from Playmates and the new comic book series from IDW. Sessions are at 4pm, 5pm, and 6pm. Pizza will be served!

    There are even more panels with TMNT-related guests participating; these are some of the highlights that I've picked out. The only panel that is likely to feature TMNT content is the IDW panel on Thursday.

    Sideshow Shredder Comiquette Full Reveal

    Sideshow Mouser Comiquette Pre-Order on Thursday and Friday

    The time is nearly here to pre-order the San Diego Comic-Con exclusive Mouser comiquette from Sideshow Collectibles!

    For convention attendees, the pre-order event is on THURSDAY at 10am Pacific time - SHARP! For non-attendees, the pre-order event is on FRIDAY at 10am Pacific time.

    Because this is a Priority Pre-Order event, which is different from the previous TMNT pre-orders, to be able to participate in the pre-order you need to already be subscribed to the Sideshow weekly newsletter. Login to the main Sideshow site at at 10am Pacific and click on the Mouser banner to go through the ordering process.

    If that sounds complicated, it's not. It's actually super easy and you should be in and out within a few minutes. But this is one thing you definitely need to be on time for!

    Good luck to anyone wanting to add a Mouser to their collection!

    Sideshow Leonardo Comiquette Gallery Now Available

    Sideshow Collectibles has released the full gallery for their upcoming Leonardo Comiquette, which will go up for pre-order Thursday June 3 with the release of their weekly newsletter.

    The release of the full picture gallery has caused fans and collectors to emit a collective, "Hmmm," as this statue is quite obviously different in style from the other three. The most obvious detail that stands out is Leonardo's lack of visible teeth and how the shape of the mouth actually makes it look like he actually has no teeth.

    With closer inspections, other details stand out that make Leo the "One of these things is not like the other" in the set of four Turtles. The plastron seems especially bubbly/cartoony, the fingers and toes seem to be webbed, and Leo has developed some sort of skin disease, seeing how he has warts.

    The warts bit is actually what bothers me the most, as it is evidence that the sculptor really wasn't all that aware of the source material he/she was sculpting, and no one along the chain of approvals knew any more to be able to say anything of it. ETA: Going through the other galleries I did find some signs of warts on the other Turtles; I guess they just stood out more in the Leo pictures.

    Most disturbing, however, are reports that Sideshow is deleting negative comments about the comiquette on their website. One would hope that a company would use comment moderation to keep their site free on inflammatory comments, and not constructive criticism.

    I suppose I'll go ahead and pre-order on Thursday, but I think it's very possible that I cancel the order before it ships. This just sits that bad with me. Hmmm, indeed.

    Sideshow's Raphael Comiquette Shipping Soon

    Sideshow SDCC Exclusive Mouser Pre-orders on June 10 & 11

    With the release of their weekly newsletter tonight, Sideshow has revealed a (slightly) better picture of their upcoming 2010 San Diego Comic-Con exclusive Mouser comiquette, as well as the pre-order dates you need to know if you want to get one of these.

    The pre-order for Comic-Con attendees will be at 10:00am pacific time on June 10.

    The pre-order for Comic-Con non-attendees will be at 10:00am pacific time on June 11.

    IMPORTANT! If you are not going to Comic-Con, there is no way to fudge the system and pre-order as an attendee and still get the Mouser. You will need to pre-order on June 11.

    I highly recommend that whichever pre-order event you participate in, you BE PUNCTUAL. This is likely to sell out quickly.

    If you are attending Comic-Con but miss the June 10 pre-order event, you could still pre-order as a non-attendee on the 11th. However, you will have to pay a slightly higher price + shipping. There is no way to fudge the system and pick up the item at the Con if you do not pre-order it as an attendee.

    I'll put up a reminder the week of the pre-order events - Good luck!

    Sideshow Comic-Con 2010 Exclusive Mouser Comiquette

    Today, Sideshow Collectibles revealed the first glimpse of the exclusive items they will be offering as part of this year's San Diego Comic-Con event in July, and a TMNT Mouser comiquette is one of the four items!!

    We'll have to wait until April 15th for further details, but it is very exciting for Sideshow to be making their TMNT line part of their Comic-Con event!

    For those not familiar with Sideshow's convention exclusives and not fortunate enough to attend Comic-Con this year, fear not, you're not out of luck! Sideshow always makes a small percentage of each exclusive available to non-attendees. But you will have to pay VERY close attention to the forth-coming details, as there can't be any slacking if you want to snag one. Attendees should also be prepared and alert to pre-ordering details, as all of these will be sold out before the convention starts.

    Stay tuned to or Ninja Pizza to get the details as they're made available!

    Sideshow's Donatello Comiquettes Shipping Soon

    Sideshow Collectibles has started sending e-mail notices that their Donatello comiquette, both the exclusive edition and the regular edition, is expected to be in their warehouse in approximately 20 days. These e-mails request that you verify your payment information by February 27, as the cards will be charged soon after as the statues start shipping out to their awaiting homes.

    If you have an order placed, make sure those credit cards are in order! If you don't have an order placed, it's not too late to get on the wait list. Right now is when cancellations are most likely as people decide whether or not they can actually afford what they pre-ordered several months ago.

    Sideshow Michelangelo Comiquette Preview

    Hey there, folks! It's been awhile since we visited. Truth is, there hasn't been much in terms of TMNT news to report (specifically, none). Further truth is that this will probably be the case for the foreseeable future, as things are still in flux with the whole Nickelodeon thing. Also, I've been a little lazy, but I do have some TMNT Flashback features planned that I hope to use to supplement all this down time.

    However! Tonight we do have the first preview image of Sideshow Collectibles' upcoming Michelangelo comiquette, the third in a series of four. YAY! (If you live under a rock, you may not have figured out that Mike is my favorite.)

    Mike will go on sale with the launch of the January 28 Sideshow Collectibles newsletter. Be alert, as that exclusive edition is likely to sell out within an hour or two!
