Good Smile Reveals Plans for TMNT Villain Statues

You may remember Good Smile from their work on a set of exclusive Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles statues based on the art of James Jean. It would appear that this line of statues sold quite well, because the company has also decided to start working on a line of TMNT villain statues as well. During SDCC 2016, they revealed two of the models for their new line, including both Shredder and Bebop. If the image on the poster is an accurate representation of what to expect, we can look forward to Rocksteady and Krang figures as well.

Good Smile is known for producing high quality statues, and it would appear that this tradition is going to continue with these TMNT villain statues. Although they don’t yet have a paint job, the Shredder and Bebop statue both look incredibly detailed. That being said, the lack of paint would indicate that they are in the early stages of development. If that is the case, chances are that we won’t be seeing these TMNT statues any time soon. If I had to hazard a guess, I’d say that these collectibles might find their way to the market by Q4 2017.

Unfortunately, beyond the statues on display and the poster promising even more, we really don’t have much information about this new line from Good Smile. At this stage in development, it’s hard to say when they will be released or what their price point will be. It’s worth noting that the James Jean statues originally sold for about $100-$130 per figure, which is a fairly decent price. Unless these newest statues are much bigger or more detailed than their previous work, chances are we will see a similar pricing structure for this line as well.

I wouldn’t be surprised if we heard more about these statues at the New York Toy Fair next year. As always, we’ll keep you posted whenever we discover more information about these awesome TMNT collectibles!

My name is Justin Wren and I love to write about the TMNT! I've been a big Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles fan since the late 80's. Back then, I would watch the original animated series and play with the Playmates toys all the time. I have been following the boys ever since I was a kid, and I'm very happy to see them back in the limelight after all these years. Needless to say, I'm proud to be a member of the team on this awesome TMNT Fan Site!
