I kind of hate them. Ok, I don’t hate them, but I don’t love them. They’re the coolest Bebop and Rocksteady figures ever and they’re going to be huge and super detailed. I’ll buy at least two and I’ll spam Instagram with pictures. But I’m kind of disappointed. The promise of the Classic Collection to me was finally having figures that were screen accurate to the 80s cartoon characters. Bebop and Rocksteady are the figures I wanted to get that treatment the most, and I’ve been waiting to get a look at them forever.
I think the sculpt of the bodies is awesome, the accessories look perfect, and the size compared to the Turtles looks spot on. The heads just look wrong to me though. They’re too serious, too realistic looking, and too wrinkly. Seriously, what’s with all the wrinkles?
Bebop and Rocksteady are goofy as hell. They’re always smiling and cutting wise, and even when they’re frowning or trying to look tough they look ridiculous. Everything about these figures is awesome to me, but the heads just look weird. I’m sure it’s just me and like I said, I’ll still get them, but what do you think?
