TMNT isn't a property I collect... but the buzz I've read seems to be generally positive about the the way playmates has handled and upgraded that line. So I don't doubt they *could* modernize and do an updated 4" scale trek line... I just wonder if they want too... and if you update the sculpts, styling and POA on the line... will longtime collectors of the original line want to mix and match?
Hasbro has done a pretty good job (finally) of upgrading most of the original ToyBiz Marvel Legends... to a point that I've purchased many of the Hasbro versions and sold off the ToyBiz version... that should be Playmates goal. Sell me a better product than before... and better than DST.
