TMNT: A Brief History

Just when I was getting ready to toss my accumulation of action-type figures in the dumpster, along comes The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Collection from Playmates. Allow me to fill in the ninja-fied blanks. The TMNT first crawled out of their collective shell in the awesome '80s black and white, cult comic book by Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird. The story was a take-off of Marvel Comics' Daredevil. Soon, they started popping up on Saturday morning cartoons (ten seasons worth,) and in an ooze-inspiring movie, or three. I guess that old saying is true. You can't keep a good turtle down - cuz these heroes in a half shell are back. And they've got toys... err... I mean very, very cool collectible merchandise.

The Latest Toys:

All four Turtle dolls, sorry, action figures (Donatello, Raph, Leonardo and Mike,) have great detail and loads of weapons. Not McFarlane-like detail, but groovy nonetheless. And where would these pizza lovin' reptiles be without Splinter, Shredder and a Foot Soldier or two.

Extras!

When these Turtles need to get around the city, public transportation is not an option. What's more appropriate for a gang of bad shell turtles than a super-charged armored car? It comes complete with dual action missiles, torpedo launchers and a winch - this super-durable Battle Shell has become my fave. Plus, there's plenty o'space for storing turtles and weapons. And, if Donatello or Raph ever feel like patrolling solo, just check out the Shell Cycle. Like the Battle Shell, it's heavy duty and cool. I have a feeling these sturdy collectibles are gonna be around for the next incarnation of the TMNT.

    I have also played video games my entire life. But for the gory and more intense video games I've been judged on my skills because I'ma girl. I usually win as well even when they don't "take it easy" on me.  :p :)
