New on shelves as of January 2015 is the all new sub series of Nickelodeon figures, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles - Mutations! Nine all "new" figures have been released which include Leonardo, Michelangelo, Donatello, Raphael, Metal Head, Slash, Shredder, Splinter and Tiger Claw.
These figures honestly disappoint us. Mainly because it's nothing short of a rehash of what we've already gotten. Out of the nine figures, none of them are new. Though we do like the packaging, it's not enough to make us want to dive head long into this all new sub series. Quite honestly we've never really found ourselves sitting around saying, "Boy, wouldn't it be great if we could take our Turtle figures apart and swap the pieces of each body around?"
Side Note - We did end up picking up a Metal Head so that we could put his pieces in Donnie's workshop area in the Secret Sewer Lair. That turned out pretty cool in terms of adding to the look of the diorama.
In addition, the set of four Mystic Turtles are out on store shelves. We'll create a new post for those once we've obtained them.
Join us next time when we take a look at Elvira - Mistress of the Dark!

This seems to be a hot trand right now with Hasbro's Marvel and TransFormers doing Masher figures.ReplyDelete
We're sure that a lot of kids love these, and that's cool. Not everything will appeal to everyone.Delete
I just noticed that all the new figures coming out ie... all the Mystic Turtles, are all in new packaging. I also saw a Casey Jones in this new packaging that looks like the "mutations" packaging. Is playmates toys switching things up for 2015?ReplyDelete
Yes, Playmates is changing their packaging up for this year, and it appears that in doing so they have released the older figures in this new style. So far we've only seen; Casey Jones, Meatlhead, Shredder 2 and Tiger Claw.Delete
Are the teenage mutant ninja turtles still for sale?ReplyDelete
The 2012 Nickelodeon line has ended. The current line of Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is still ongoing, as far as I know.Delete
