Nick should have had consultancy with you in designing Shredder.
Well, I can't take credit for the design -- I more/less followed the show design of the 2K3 Shredder for that one -- but I can't say that having me around to help out with an action figure toyline would be a bad idea. I do know quite a lot about action figures and articulation, after all!
Turtle soup! That's popular down here in Singapore too. I hate it though. Bitter and cruel (Taste and treatment of animals.)
But yeah, uh, Cowabunga!
Oh, turtle soup isn't popular here! Shredder's the only guy who seems to want some, and he's not even a US native. Also, given his track record, I doubt he's ever actually tried it.
If I get a job sometime soon and stop being homeless, I'm totally buying these four figures. For my money they're cooler than the Classics figures.
From what I've read -- and from what I saw at SDCC, what with the classics figures being on display and for sale at a few booths -- I'm inclined to agree.
