I thought the toyline always did good until recently? Obviously something was successful or the show would not have lasted all this time. Anyways I don't keep up very well with the TMNT fandom but Vaughn Michael has been a member for a long time and has provided a lot of information before. It seems dumb he'd "burn" his credibility just with this. So I do think his source is real. I mean of course I would prefer if his credibility burned and we got another season but I'm just being realistic.
