Just saw a preview of the TMNT topper. It has all 4 turtles and a 3D Technodrome that moves. I couldn't see any other features, but it looks pretty sweet!

Pics?

#3 16 days ago

On Stern insider..

Eye moves... question is what’s the $$$$

#4 16 days ago

Can't share pics yet, but it has a cityscape in the background, the four turtles in the foreground with the logo in the middle and the Terrordome center back with a moving eye.

No pricing announced to dealers quite yet, but we are taking an interested list.

Uh...Turtles logo directly above another Turtles logo? Fail.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Plastic.

Has to have an add on mode, maybe pizza eating mode! Eat my shorts man!

I'll never understand the fascination with toppers. Most are just cheap flat plastic with redundant artwork like this piece of crap. Please.

Yeah, doesn't seem necessary

I like certain types of toppers - best Stern Toppers have been: TWD, Munsters, Black Knight, BM66
I agree, 0 desire for the ones that are made up of just flat plastics - at around $250 I would consider them but not at current prices

Moving eyeball! Big deal Not worth the money I bet.

I agree with most of this. However, adding animation does add another element in bringing a game to life. I think we all agree that the BKSoR topper is bad ass, and SW is cool in nature and piss poor in price and execution (they used Sharpee for detail lines on R2D2 FFS!). Movement and interaction are something really unique if someone wants that. But more flat plastics and repetition of logos is weak.

Ghostbusters topper is another example of great execution. Better than Star Wars in my opinion and at retail, 250 bucks cheaper!

Question, is it referred to as the Terrordome somewhere? I feel like I've seen a few people call it that. I've always known it as the Technodrome.

#16 16 days ago

I think it looks just okay. The TMNT Logo in the topper is redundant.

Yeah, definitely removed day 1 if somehow the price tag isn't too much for me to accept.

Oh yea, I think you're right! Too much Public Enemy in my younger days. I'll make the correction.

It will be $599. Turtles logo looks to be removable. In fact, perhaps all the flat plastic Turtles are removable. Looks like screws at the bottom on all of them. Then one could place Turtles action figures of their choice on top with the moving Eye.

Not as bad as I thought after seeing the Elvira topper. Although that’s the JP and AIQ topper price both of which have additional modes attached to them, hope we aren’t seeing that with TMNT.

#26 15 days ago

Now this would look good as back drop to the stern dome topper and drop the ever too close turtles “ double vision” redundancy .

Since I'm buying it anyway, I sure hope I get an additional mode out of it.

I am not so sure the extra mode is worth the money. On JP the topper mode just gives you x amount of flips to gain a few extra points. You get to the mode by completing a stage that you have to complete anyway. Nothing spectacular.

If Stern are smart, they will make the eye move around so it looks at you and mocks you!

I'm not saying it is. I was saying that I'm buying it anyway because has a mechanical eye, and an extra mode would be a cherry on top!

The extra logo looks removable in the pics.

Yup. And the Turtles themselves. Could make for action figure replacements.
