You might have caught word about this interesting looking repaint of the upcoming Leonardo figure from Playmates Toys. Images of this figure randomly popped up on the official Playmates website with the words “Out of Stock,” and no explanation of exactly where or when this would be made available, if at all.
I saw many posts guessing that this would be a San Diego Comic Con exclusive. But other sites were reporting that this figure would be available in the Fall. With no official word from Playmates, I decided to go straight to the source. I e-mailed Playmates directly and asked for any information on this figure. I received an immediate response from Paula Billingsley at Playmates toys:
“This figure will be available at Comic Con only at this point, and will retail for around $20.00. Leonardo is the only one being made.”
So there you go, ladies and gents! Looks like we’ve got ourselves an awesome looking, official TMNT exclusive at this year’s SDCC! This jumps up my list to being the exclusive I am now most excited about!
UPDATE: Playmates also just confirmed with me that this figure will be sold at the Nickelodeon Booth.
