    I don't know if it is the same thing. Kinder Eggs are chocolate eggs that come with a prize inside. They have a turtles set now but it is random what you get   hqdefault.jpg   Actually Kinder Eggs are banned in the States so I have only seen them in Canada. Things like that leads to ads like this being created   moms-demand-action-for-gun-sense-in-amer

     

     

    Yeah I know, we have those here as well, but last Easter they released a Maxi egg that had Turtles figures as well, those are the ones I was talking about.

     

    Brilliant add, human stupidity always manages to surprise me... It would be even better if they used the Hello Kitty rifle on it

    I love it ^_^ their weapons are hilarious.

     

    We had a bunch of Kinder Eggs lying around for Christmas and I got a Mikey out of one of those. Now the fun of trying to get the other 3 :(

     

    The Maxi eggs? I have Mikey and Raph, no way I'm going after the other 2 unfortunately... :S

    It is a shame about Donnie. He was always my second favourite (after Ralph). He usually has some of the funniest lines.

     

    Well, I am always on the lookout for weird and different turtles. If you hear of anything on your travels let me know :D

     

    I can give you an update on that already, my girl gave me these cuties for Xmas BOO_TTs04_TMNT_1set4.jpg

    I don't know but if they release in a different year I thought they had to put the year it came from. Regardless they go with my collection nicely so I am happy. I would actually like to get a nice Turtles poster to hang above the figures. Either an original artwork or possibly the First Movie poster. We will see, it is a work in progress :D

     

    Yeah it is so weird when they just release a couple of them. I don't really get the thinking because even as a kid I only had leo, ralph and donny and the reward for doing my chores was my mom got me a Mike...but it was Wacky Action Michelangelo. I was still happy to finally have a Mikey but was always disappointed I didn't have a "real" one. That one in the package is the first time I ever owned an "original" Michelangelo...25 years later is still good ^_^

     

    Yeah the Ghostbusters are a weird size too, ti is like the WWE Turtles. Seriously it would have just been better, like you said, to just put the Turtles in ghostbuster outfits and not tried to make them "look" like the original 4 GBs. Turtles with jumpsuits and Proton packs would be a must buy for me ^_^

     

    Not exactly, for example the Evolution of Leonardo pack, they lost the mold of one of the older Leos so they had to cast an original figure and the stamp was left as it was originaly so it's not exactly a fail safe way to know the year of origin, but you might also be right, yours might just be how the 25th where released in the US, here in EU they only got that artwork for the most recent release, the 25th looked different like you can see on mine.

     

    It's all about sales, they first release the ones they think would sell better, then move down the line, that's why usually Donnie gets left out, they just give up before they can reach him, he was even almost left out of the Revoltech re-releases, they chose 10 best selling figures to re-release and he was placed 9th or 10th, thankfully they all got in the top 10 so they all got re-released.

     

    Same here, I would be all over them, especially if they looked like they did on the IDW's TMNTXGhostbusters crossovers.

    They are from 2013 so that would be 25 years but the paint looks OK on them. I can't speak for the plastic (as they aren't open) but looking at them they look like my original guys...regardless for the price I can't complain :D.

     

    I think it is stupid that they don't just always release all 4 characters. Especially of things like the Playmobils because realistically only collectors are really going to be buying those anyways and collectors will buy all 4 guys.

     

    Anyways I just like collecting different looking ones to add variety to my collection so if I find something that is different I will probably try to find a way to get it. There were the Ghostbuster TMNT but I just wasn't a fan of what they looked like :( They didn't try hard enough to make them look like their Ghostbust counterpart. I am a huge fan of both things though so I want to get them but I am waiting to find a great deal.

     

     

    They are? Humm I thought all of the ones from the 25th anniversary had the logo and the ones you have are missing them, unless playmates just reused the plastic from the 25th ones and left the 2013 stamp... Oh well as long as you're happy with them it's all that maters right? ;)

     

    It is yeah, if they don't make all 4 I won't get them, period, that's why I didn't get the evolution pack for the 2016 movie ones, they only released Raph and Leo and screw over Donnie and Mikey so no money from me, and I really wanted those pre-teen turtles... :(

     

    Those would be so much better if they just made the turtles dressed like the Ghostbusters, the way they did them they look weird and kinda ugly, an easy pass from me, and again, I would be all over them if only they did them right...

    I too am a big fan of them both, have been collecting the huge IDW hardcovers from both, they're glorious :D

    Yes I remember your collection from before :D I was actually hoping you would respond because maybe you would know why they only released 2 of the turtles in the Playmobil and 2 in the pixel pals...why not all 4 :(

     

    Also I love your Metallic turtles with the animal armour. I had Donny when I was a kid but have only found the 4 for sale once (and it was way too much to buy).

     

    Finally I like how, just like me, you have the originals in the packages still. Mine are the rereleases but I was blown away by the price. Normally these things go for hundreds on ebay but I got all 4 for 60$ and 10$ shipping. I don't think they are bootlegs either as they came from Canada and the packages look correct.

     

    Oh sorry LOL I really have to update my photos then, I own you that much :P

     

    I don't know about that, probably those never sold enough to warrant going for the others, Donnie is worse, he's always the least sold of them all so he usually gets the short end of the stick...

     

    Yeah, those cost me a bit, but they're not the only ones that did, the Mirage ones in B&W, as well as the revoltech and the Figuarts (not on this photo) also cost me a pretty penny, but it's ok, I love them and don't mind all the money I spent on them :D

     

    Mine are re-releases as well, but I believe yours are the second re-release?! Playmates re-released them for the 25th anniversary and then again recently, I believe yours are the last ones, a shame really because, and I hope you're not offended by it, they suck, they where done with cheap plastics, the colors don't match the originals (especially Raph, he's too bright) and the paint jobs are sloppy. But no, they're not bootlegs, for bether or for worse they're the real deal.

     

    Really hoping for a release of NECA's movie turtles in a smaller scale, those are just gorgeous but way too big for my tastes...

    The one thing I really collect now is TMNT stuff. I only collect the 4 turtles (not any of the other characters) but what I am finding sometimes is they release something new...but only release 2 of the turtles and usually Shredder or a Foot Soldier. Why wouldn't you release all 4 characters :( The 2 I have seen that I want is the Pixel Pals (only Leo and Ralph) and the Playmobile (only Leo and Mike)

     

    Anyways here is my updated collection

    A Kindred spirit :D

     

    I too only collect the boys in green, but I go the extra mile, I only collect canon appearences of them, here's an outdated picture of them, I'll upload a better/recent one some other time.

    This is both ridiculous and epic at the same time!

     

    I just can't believe Netherealm got the rights to add them to a DC superhero game, but I ain't complaining.

     

    It's not that unbelievable though, the TMNT had 3 crossovers with Batman on the comics already, this is obviously an extend of that.

     

    I just hope they're using this as a way to test the waters for a completly original TMNT game in the same vein as the Batman Arkham series, as in, an entirelly original universe using the best bits of the various incarnations of the TMNT over the past 30 years.

    I wasn’t really implying that this was good writing in the book. However i do feel that we should hold a book that one guy wrote by himself to different standards than a multi million dollar movie directed by Steven Spielberg.

     

    It doesn't change the fact this is based on the book, if the book contains these things why should one expect any different from a movie based on said book?

    Why go to the lengths of actually writing a movie that can stand on its own when you can just put in a bunch of shit people will recognize.

     

    Because this is based on a book whose entire premiss is referencing 80's pop culture?!

    Has anyone tried watching a 3D Blu-ray yet? Apparently this was made possible with an update a few months ago.

     

     

    I did, it's so much better then regular 3D glasses, I've only seen one 3D movie in the thatre, and I found it too dark and I didn't enjoy it at all, that's not the case with the VR, they look exactly the same, they're bright and don't look like your watching movies with sunglasses on. I did felt a little lightheaded though, just like one does while playing VR for the first time, that was right when the update came out though, I'll have to try it again once I'm more used to VR in general.

    I feel they could have done better with this than what's essentially five minutes of context-free violence. Call me desensitised, but at this stage I'm so used to seeing it in games - especially when paired with the promise of a mature and gritty storyline - that it's lost all impact, and strikes me mostly as a cynical marketing ploy. Which, of course, it probably is.

     

    The trailer itself is hard to get excited about. I have no recollection of Ellie mentioning her mother in the first game, and generally have no association of Ellie and her mother, so that particular line of speculation leaves me underwhelmed. Hard to say any more about a teaser, only that I trust the finished product will be more subtle in its exploration of conflict and misery.

     

    Ellie's mother is a huge part of why Ellie is Ellie and why Marlene did what she did, you can learn more about her on the prequel comics.

    I'd like to read about it I assume you read this somewhere because I find it hard to beleive, do you have a source you can link? The only thing I can find is this happened for 1 week in 2016 before Chirstmas, because people were buying vinyl as gifts for Christmas and this happened in the UK.

     

    If this is what you mean we are not really talking about the same thing here ...

     

    Read the post right above this one to know what I mean. Streaming did outperform it, but nothing else, not payed digital, nor CD, only thing that the above post got wrong is claiming that Vinyl sales didn't get better, they did, by a lot, compared to the previous year that is, that and the reason both of the other 2 got major drops made it the top contender, again, not counting streaming that got a even bigger boost.

    Music CDs? I don't know anyone who has purchased one in the last decade they still sell them in big stores but all the dedicated music shops are long gone here maybe a small audience still buys them - probably old people but I seriously doubt the up and coming generation are all about buying music CDs

     

    But you have to wonder how long it will be until a console manufacturer releases a console without a disc drive, I'm pretty convinced it's going to happen even if they released it in addition to a console with a disk drive but at a reduced price. I have not used my PS4 disk drive once, it if the PS5 came in two units one for 400 with a disk drive and one for 350 without a disk drive I do wonder which unit would come out on top - at least in parts of the world with good internet access.

     

     

    I like this paragraph, very depressing but true haha! If you live in a country where you pay inheritance tax that makes it even worse ;-)

     

    And yet vinyl was the best selling music medium last year...

  15. People are concerned about what happens to digital media once you die? That's cute, you don't even own anything digital in the first place, anything you buy digitally can be taken from you any time the actual owner of said things so desire, don't ilude yourself, you're just paying to have a licence to use it for as long as they want, and there's nothing anyone can do about it, you agree to those terms as soon as you finalize your "purchase", that's the big problem with a digital only future, they have all the power and we bend over and take it like good little boys, but mankind is just way to dumb to realize this things until it's way too late.

    In other word, if i use grand summon does not mean he use the skill for free every time? i just asking because i have used grand summon 1 time only and he unleashed wakizashi istantly without paying a single gil. If every time he use the skill for free it's better to waste an overdrive because i can fill up the overdrive with yuna pretty fast using double cast with curaga.

     

    Just summon him in every random battle and pay him 1000gil each time, do it enough times and he'll start doing attacks for free, even Zanmato. I even had him do a couple of Zanmato for me for free on a couple of Dark Aeons. The more you use him the more likely it is he'll throw you a freebie.

    I'm not against remastering them but why the two games in one pack ? they are two totally different games, yes Beyond Two Souls and Heavy Rain were in one pack but they are at least the same in gameplay

     

    For the same reason why they packed Heavy Rain with Beyond, Tomb Raider with Hitman, Limbo with Inside and countless others, they're both critically aclaimed games by the same Developers.

    I can't remember the reason it switched to Nintendo. But you never know I guess.

     

    It was simple really, the first one didn't break any sales records and SEGA wanted to let the IP die, but Nintendo offered to publish the game themselves so they agreed, bottom line is, it can come out on other systems (Mass Effect 1 was published by Microsoft but still came out for the PS3 for example), but it's not likelly.

    Yeah the list seems kind of sketchy. I just hope its true, they kind of need to if they want 3 to be a big hit. Aside from the face animations i always see people asking where/how to play 1&2. ;/

     

    This, I'll only buy 3 IF they remaster the first 2, and I really want to buy 3...
