I'm hoping Walmart gets these in. I'm looking to collect the new line, however I wouldn't mind having one from the classic line. I really like the looks of the Shredder. I can't wait to find these in stores.

local target put stock out... left splinter and april.. as i really hate both designs... picked up shredder and two foot soldiers... there wasnt a kraang... so short of kraang and possibly getting the lair , im good till wave 2...
Picked these guys up last Friday at my TRU, but just now getting the chance to post pictures. Pretty awesome, brings back lots of good memories, wish I never sold or lost any of the toys when I was younger. Luckily all their eyes were OK.
Sorry for the crappy iPad pic. I also picked up the Nickelodeon Leo and Don yesterday, will pick up the rest when I get paid next week.

Minor update on the future of the Classic Collection from Playmates facebook page:
Juan P Merida: When will we see more of the line besides the 4 Tmnt Classics? Playmates Toys: Hi Juan - We are considering extending the Classic Collection line. A final decision will be made early next year.
I knew they'd already said the future of the Classic Collection depended on sales of wave 1, so that makes sense why they didn't have any wave 2 news at SDCC, but wow, no decision till early next year?? That's aages away...

I bought Don and Raph today from the Nick Line. I really like these and they are in scale with the Original line. I posed them with my original foot soilder and movie villian. I was quite disappointed when I saw Shredder in the store though. I think I will buy a different Shredder to go with this set.
I really want the Shellrasier though, I can't wait to complete this set.

I just bought Mikey and Ralph from the new nick line and omg I am in love with them!! They are the perfect size I wish the classics were this size as well. I'm def gonna get Leo and Don soon. I just bought my two favs for now. But man are they awesome.

I now have all four nick turtles. And they are amazing. Def figures everyone should pick up. Its like a mashup of classic meets new style. I love how they are all unique different parts and skin tones. Playmates out did themselves on these ninja turtle figures..just the turltes..all the others are meh..shredder looks decent but I do like the foot soldier.

Picked these up at Zellers for $12.99 each. They had everyone except Krang. The turtles are by far the best of the wave, but I also really like the foot soldier. Splinter looks like a raccoon-rat combination. Kinda weird.

i cant stand the splinter design... april has grown on me a bit.. but im still not impressed with her... the only real complaint i have with the foot and shredder are the lack of knees... they would have been great if they had them...
I am a massive TMNT fan and ALL I want is a proper classic style Shredder. All of the new Shredder designs look like some odd robot-mutant type of creature. NECA was slated to make a classic comic looking Shredder figure but cancelled it so I hope the TMNT classic line sells well enough to get a Shredder.
