Original Comic Book Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

I had not realized how long Playmates has been producing TMNT figures since the re-launch of the franchise via the Nickelodeon cartoon, but the figures I’ll be reviewing today were released as part of the 11th wave of figures in 2014.

Raphael (TMNT2: Out of the Shadows)

Even though the first figure I got from the latest Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles :Out of the Shadows movie was not quite what I expected, I decided to give this line another chance and got me the movie version of Raphael.

Donatello (TMNT2: Out of the Shadows)

To be frank, I had to struggle to accept the updated look for these reptiles from the previous Michael Bay movie, but for the sequel, they seem to have dialed back a little bit the gritty, urban styling.

The second character I got from Playmates’ Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Classic line is the hotheaded Raphael, and as soon as I opened the package, I realized there is a rather glaring issue with this line of action figures.

After getting all four of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, I found myself craving some more of those toys. After a quick inspection to the stock available at my local stores, I decided to go for the one that seemed to be the less abundant in the first series of figures by Playmates.

Michelangelo

It may be hard to believe but only recently I have been acquainted with the early TMNT comics by Eastman & Laird. Those comics are much grittier and darker in tone than the version of the Turtles we got to experience in the 90’s, although even back then, Michelangelo already was the light-hearted one.

After reviewing Donatello, it really didn’t take too much for me to go back and grab another Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle from the shelf. This time I decided to pickup the elder brother, Leonardo.

Donatello

I do remember the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles craze from the late 80’s and early 90’s. In fact, even though I was certainly not in the target age bracket for the toys, I still ended up buying some action figures of them.

The Harvester is huge in terms of 1:18 scale toys, measuring 16” tall and almost as wide. Even thought the toy is actually underscaled compared to it’s movie counterpart, it is still quite an imposing toy …

Captain Kirk Star Trek TOS Desktop Wallpaper

The “futuristic” space suits from Star Trek The Original Series were masterpieces of vintage Sci Fi. The tall blocky helmets remind me of something out of a Buck Rodgers serial. I’m sure at the time, they would have seemed trim and modern compared to what the Apollo crews were doning. They also did a pretty […]

Tomb Raider – Lara Croft vs. Shark

I’m a fan of the Tomb Raider series of video games. I haven’t played the most recent one, but just about the rest of them. The first installment was one of my favorite Playstation games. After number two, I started playing them on PC. We were watching something recently on TV, and they used the […]
