Where is the love for 2K3 TMNT?

NECA is stuck in 89 cartoon, 90s movie and 90s Konami arcade game modes, while Super7 is stuck in 89s-90s Playmates toys mode... they can do Archie Comics stuff too!
I have mentioned that Next Mutation might be off limits for everyone, not because of Rights issues but more along the lines that people avoid that version like the plague.
I know that there are import version of the 2012 Turtles. Not sure if Revoltech made them... I know Bandai made the 87 turtles that I reviewed a while back.

 But here's the thing none of the companies that are actively making Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles toys are making 2K3 Turtle toys.
It would be nice to see a set of the four Turtles, Splinter , April, Casey, Shredder, Karai, Foot Ninja, Hun, and Baxter Stockman... bi said I don't necessarily mean a multi-pack but a series of waves having all these characters. Preferably under 7 inch scale... well being brutally honest what I would like would be what motel attempted with Masters of the Universe Classics but for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. A turtle line that covers the main eras:
Mirage, Fred Wolf, Saban, 4kids, nickelodeon...
 I know when I see the list it's like a holy shit that's a lot of turtles!  unfortunately that way Nickelodeon spread the toy license wouldn't allow it. And force a super seven it wouldn't be that difficult to adopt the pseudo vintage sculpt into 2K 3 versions. The heads belts and feet would be different for the turtles. Other characters would require a bit of an overhaul.  for NECA on the other hand they would require a brand new body and they could adapt each turtle from it. Obviously everyone else would be required to get a brand new body... maybe they could really use some parts from The Mirage foot ninja but I'm not 100% sure right now.

I would rather have them in the Super 7 scale just to have a pseudo Turtles Forever meeting He-Man and Thundercats Mega crossover...

Oh God in 20 years from now people might be asking for Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles classics figures...
