Playmates Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles February 13, 2012
Are we cowabunga on this? After a few televised incarnations, this reinvention of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles seems to be the one with the most potential. Krang, Shredder, April, and new characters abound with vehicles and a massive, amazing, disgustingly cool sewer playset. The new figures are a hair over 4-inches tall, have a load of articulation, and feel like real toys. I got to play around withe one of them and it's really nice.
A larger line of "classic" Turtles with an SRP of $15 are a hybrid of the original 1980s figures and the original 1980s animation models. They look really cool, but to call them true representations of the animated series is something of a lie. It's close, and the inspiration is there, and they're amazing and loaded with articulation. But it could be more cartoon-like. I still want 'em.
This is a line that looks good. And as of now, I was told there were no plans for Bebop or Rocksteady, but Metalhead is making a return with an unpainted prototype on display. That's good news.
