NECA via Twitter today confirmed that their are 12+ Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Movie 7" figures coming in 2020. As for those who missed out on getting the second wave of figures at Gamestop, well according to NECA you shouldn't resort to secondary market prices to get them because something is in the works to get more out.

As long as the figures are based on the 90s films as oppose the more recent 2014 movie with Megan Fox.

Defiantly has to be 90s related. Not a fan of the new stuff.

As for the figures I think we're gonna see? They said 12 movie figures.

Movie 1:

Tatsu

Casey

April

Danny (?)

Movie 2:

Shredder (New Costume) - Easy mold re-use, obvious choice

Keno

Tokka

Rahzar

Super Shredder

April (New Actress) (?)

Professor Perry (?)

Freddy the Foot Soldier (?) - Easy mold re-use, obvious choice, VERY obscure character, but they're doing it with Alpha-1 in the cartoon series figures, so why not?

That's literally all the characters I can think of. Well, aside from April's boss Charles in the first movie, or Police Chief Sterns from both. *LOL*

You forgot Vanilla Ice from TMNT2. I remember going to the theatres to see TMNT1 as a kid and being disappointed it was nothing like the cartoon, LOL. I cant believe theres actually a market for figures from that movie 30 years later.

"Pretty sure they are sold out at GS but dont pay secondary market prices . . . "

We don't get any of that action!

"Something in the works."

No, serious. We're getting pretty good at trying to fix what we screwup the first time." (We get A LOT of practice.)

Why cant they do a sequel to the original movie (not the second where everything was for kids)? It obviously had a huge impact on everyone and we are still getting toys for this and its still exciting. Itll make money!

1) While influential, the 1990 filmabsolutely does show its age (not SUPER poorly, mind you, but it's there), and going from that starting point would emphasize that aging process. Making a movie that's up to modern standards but based on the first film would cause that films flaws to stand out GLARINGLY, and a lot of people just don't want that to happen. On the nostalgia front, the movie has survived remarkably unscathed in spite of its successors, and most people want to keep it that way.

2) They tried it. TMNT 2007 was a canon sequel to the live action films. It wasn't super popular (despite the fact that I felt it was pretty good).

3) Rights and licensing issues, always a PITA.

4) Jim Henson Company has some bad-ish blood with the franchise, 'cuz of Jim's personal views of the film and the property as a whole (that's WHY the second movie was so kid-friendly). You couldn't do a proper sequel without them on board (when you try, you get TMNT 3, which was awful), and they're unlikely to come onboard.

5) As much as there's a market for adult collectibles for the property, the sad reality (and I say this as die-hard, life-long fan of the franchise) is that TMNT is a pretty niche market. Kids love it, adults have nostalgia for it, and it can easily sustain as a cartoon and comic and toy property indefinitely. But movies? Look at Rotten Tomatoes. EVERY TMNT movie has less than 50% (Hell, only one even hits 40%) critical standing, and only three have a positive AUDIENCE standing (TMNT 1, TMNT 2, and TMNT 2007). And box office?

TMNT 1 - $13.5 mil budget, $202 mil box - 14x profit

TMNT 2 - $25 mil budget, $78 mil box - 2x profit

TMNT 3 - $21 mil budget, $42 mil box - 1x profit

TMNT 2007 - $34 mil budget, $95 mil box -1.8x profit

BayMNT 1 - $150 mil budget, $493 mil box -2.3x profit

BayMNT 2 - $135 mil budget, $245 mil box - >1x profit

In short,there's just not that much of a visible market (from a movie studio's perspective) to justify making a sequel to the first movie, 'cuz the franchise as a whole hasn't been all that valuable, and thus, not worth the effort. Mind you, this is movie studio logic, not my perspective (from those numbers, obviously they SHOULD continue the original franchise and just stop making stupid executive meddling decisions . . . the reviews and money improved when they got a bit MORE mature in TMNT 2007, they just needed to lean into it), but yeah . . . not a lot of incentive there. The TMNT fandom is just "too small" to warrant a more considered approach than "well, let's just throw a new guy at it, throw whatever against the wall, and see what sticks." If we had Marvel/Disney's numbers? Things would be WAY different. *LOL*

This is great, I didnt really care for the exclusive set but would love to nab a Shredder.. Also if they do TMNT2 stuff I would love Tokka, Razar and Super Shred!
