Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2014 Movie Michelangelo Figure Review

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2014 Movie Michelanelo Figure 05

Playmates Toys new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Movie 2014 basic action figure Michelangelo will be in stores starting on July 13th, 2014. This is an advanced look at Michelangelo as the movie line is not available to purchase just yet.

Disclosure – Special thanks to Playmates Toys for sending Michelangelo along to us to review.

Release Date: July 13th, 2014

Packaging:

The packaging is a standard blister card with an image of the three other Turtles on the front, and Michelangelo pictured inside the bubble. On each of the front packaging it is different for the four Turtles as it shows the other three Turtles on the card that are not the figure inside the package, and also shows the Turtle on the inside bubble just below his brothers.

On the front of the packaging, Michelangelo is shown holding nunchucks with brown handles and a silver chain, while the actual figure comes with a yellow nunchuck that looks nothing like the picture. On the back of the packaging it shows Michelangelo painted slightly different than the final product. It shows Michelangelo with eye balls, orange design painted on the inside of his sneakers, a brown chest that’s painted right up the neck, a short nunchuck with a yellow handle and silver chain, and a long nunchuck with three handles painted brown and silver. The final product is missing the eye balls and painted white instead, missing the orange painted design on the inside of the shoes, missing the brown paint around the necklace and the neck, and an all yellow painted small and long nunchucks.

Sculpt & Paint:

Michelangelo features an all new sculpt and is the shortest of the Turtles. His shell and chest have straps sculpted around and they can be used as a sheath to hold the small nunchucks. The downside is using the straps as a sheath can stretch it out too much and could damage the straps. He has a grey hooded sweater sculpted around his hips that’s nicely detailed, bandages around his wrists, and blue pants with a orange strips that matches his sneakers. On his right knee there a white bandage that’s painted all the way around. His necklace is only painted in the front and left as green lumps at the back of his neck. He also has a orange bandana that’s sculpted around his face and hangs down on either side of his head.

His short nunchuch has two differently sculpted handles, one with texture, and one that is smooth and has grooves sculpted in. It’s unusual for the handles to be different. The string holding the handles together is made of hard plastic and can break if too much stress is applied. The long nunchuck has the same smooth handles with hard plastic string holding it together. These can also break if too much stress is applied.

Michelangelo is painted in a different shade of green compared to the other four Turtles, and does not have the spots on his skin as seen in the movie stills and images we’ve seen. It’s all a solid green. The bottom of his sneakers are painted with his two green toes sticking out.

Articulation:

Ball-jointed head, ball-jointed shoulders, hinged-swivel elbows, hinged-swivel hips, hinged-swivel knees.

Accessories:

Small nunchucks, large nun chucks with three handles.

Overall:

Michelangelo is a nice looking figure and we like the detail in the sweater that’s sculpted around his hips and the color choices for his pants. There are some improvements needed here from the paint apps statements we’ve made above, better nunchucks, and a decent sheath to store his weapon on the back. The articulation is good and we love all the detail.

Highly Recommended.
