Well now it's been listed on Walmart's website for $34.97. The vehicle isn't currently available for purchase, but you can select to be notified when it comes in stock.

Looks like they will also be offering re-issues of the original Turtle figures as well for $12.97 each.

Donatello is the only Turtle figure I have not been able to currently find listed on the website.

Oh boy, I can't say I think those Cobra Kai 2 packs are even in the least bit good, everything is sucky about them. I'm so sorry for those who are fans. Playmates asleep at the tooling wheel again, phoning in hard from an ancient payphone on skid row.

This is the most ridiculous cash-grab concept. I understand Playmates is trying to make a buck and can't stand having to make new molds for new toys, but COME ON! How would this crossover EVER happen? Turtles decide to come out to the world by entering a Karate tournament? But, rather than find one in New York, they schlepped all the way to Receda, California? Why is this a thing? I think the time has come for Playmates to drop the TMNT line the way they've been dropping the ball for years.

And don't get me wrong, I got no objection to the concept of the crossover. Logic isn't SUPPOSED to be involved (look at "Batman Vs. TMNT"). It's just a fun mish-mash. It's ascended fanfic. There's nothing wrong with that. And as noted by others, the TMNT have been doing that for YEARS.

One of my prize additions to my collection is a complete set of Star Trek TMNT from the '90s. They're dumb and whimsical and silly and garish and they're FANTASTIC!! No, the crossover doesn't make sense for them. But more importantly . . . they're GOOD toys. Yes, dated articulation (they ARE from the '90s), but well made for the time, with attention to detail. Totally worth it.

These? A bunch of decade-old repaints and some of the worst new-mold 6" figures I've ever seen.

If this is based on the "Cobra Kai" show, why are Danny and Johnny kidsagain?

Why is Kreese in 1980s fighting shape? No, scratch that, why does he have a TEENAGE body??

Why are all of the humans SO LANKY?

Why do the CK figures' bare arms look like sleeves around their wrists? WHAT'S WRONG WITH THEIR WRISTS??

WHAT IS GOING ON WITH THESE FIGURES?!?

. . . Oh right. PLAYMATES is going on with these figures. *sigh*

Like, we all knew they were just gonna repackage the Classic Collection molds for the . . . *counting* . . . four, five, sixth? Seventh time? And it was a foregone conclusion that they were gonna do their best to use ONE body mold for every CK character. And judging from the new Shredder, it was almost CERTAIN they were gonna make the CK figures small and skinny compared to the oversized chonky Turtles.

But . . . somehow, I still didn't expect them to look THIS BAD. Like, I figured the CK license people would be all "yo, Playmates, you put some EFFORT into this crap, or we'll yank the license back from you so fast, you'll get whiplash!"

Nope! These are fun from a conceptual standpoint, but this whole line? HARD PASS.

Playmates has been phoning it in pretty hard core lately

Wooo, Yeah!!! I said I was just waiting for Playmates to do something cool with the Turtles license.

I STILL AM.?

A very interesting crossover... My only gripe is they just keep reusing those poop molds and doing very little new to them.

Batfreak87 - 2021-09-07 @ 5:25 pm

wow very happy to see these figures. Reminds me of the 2003 ones

deecee4 - 2021-09-07 @ 5:07 pm

So Remco in the 80s is the only company to get Ralph Macchio's likeness right in action figure form?! Lol wow...

Where have you been? TMNT hasbeen doing crossovers like this since forever: TMNT & Star Trek, TMNT & Power Rangers, TMNT & WWE, TMNT & Batman, TMNT & Ghostbusters.If anything this one fits together even more perfectly than all the others except maybe Power Rangers. I love the concept, but those CK figures leave a lot to be desired and make me extremely worried for Star Trek figures when Playmates starts putting those out again. They look cheap and like they don't have great articulation. Faces are a little hard to tell for sure, but they don't look super great from what I can see. Would like to get one in hand to take a closer look, but I'm definitely concerned.
