Not sure where you are coming from on this comment. The MB turtles are nothing like the LEGO turtles. For one thing, the LEGO turtles can actually bue used in something other than a TMNT moc as all the parts are interchangeable just like any minifig. The shell is a separate piece.
Agreed.  The LEGO versions look much much better than the MB versions!

I own the MB versions and I was so disappointed in them I still ended up making my own custom Lego Turtles (I did swipe the sais and nunchucks from MB, though).

I had the MB brand when I was younger too and I can just tell by looking at the LEGO pictures that these going to be far superior. I did like the green goop ooze they gave you in the MB sets :laugh:

My god... I know very little about TMNT, but the fig is awesome-looking and the NYCC skateboard really solidifies this as a memorable souvenir of the event. Hope everyone lucky enough to have this fig really appreciates its value, on a sentimental level as well as in terms of aftermarket value.

Too bad the rest of the turtles will have eyes..I think it works better without them.. :sceptic:

I'm just going to sit here and wait for all the Lego Purists who hate on Mega Bloks to comment 'Wow this is great!'.

Seem's LEGO is the 'rip off' this time, using an idea that's already been done before it was cool. :laugh:

I also have a set of these with the weapons and I think that they are great!

Urgh, those things are monstrously cheap and nasty looking. Horrible brittle plastic and sloppy sculpting. I'm not anti megabloks but their stuff is basically crap.

Yeah, but what he's saying is that LEGO have copied somebody else's licence for once.

Don't argue with me.  Seriously.

That's not the topic of this thread.  Besides, it's a license.  MB didn't come up with the idea of ninja turtles.  Licenses change hands all the time.  No one is copying anyone else.

Is the mask and shell straps printed, or has TLG finally started doing multicolor injection in the molding?

It's all printed not injected.

Nice review 'darkdragon'! :sweet:
This is another awesome promo. I love the NYCC skateboard, and the turtle shell looks great. Can't wait for 2013 TMNT sets. :classic:

Hi Darkdragon! Sorry to bump this thread, but I was wondering if you (or anyone else who has this fig) could do me a favor and take a picture of it straight from the front on a white background? I would like to make another one of my dark and light side pictures, but I couldn't find a good pic of this fig anywhere. So if anyone with a decent camera could do this for me I would really appreciate it and of course give credit. :classic:

I'm hoping they release the other turtles this way. Feels weird being just Leo.
