Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2014 Movie The Shredder Figure Review

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2014 Movie The Shredder Figure 05

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

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

Release Date: July 13th, 2014 (Out Now!)

Packaging:

The packaging is a standard blister card with an image of the four Turtles on the front.

On the back of the packaging, The Shredder is shown with some slight paint differences including silver armor, darker boots, and darker legs. Instead, his armor is made of up light and dark grey, with silver at the top of his helmet, and a silver plate below his stomach.

Sculpt & Paint:

The Shredder features an all new sculpt and is completely covered in “Super Shredder” armor except on parts of his arm. There is a lot of detail, texture, and sculpting that went into this figure, but the overall design was poorly constructed. The movie still shows Shredder as this menacing villain with a body covered in armor. The toy however fails to match the on screen version. For starters the armor in the movie is all shiny and has four blades, while this figure is mostly grey and has only one long blade and two smaller one’s. They made the arms showing and uncovered and put armor to the sides of them rather than rapping it around. The helmet is very basic with two small black eye balls.

To be fair to Playmates Toys, they are limited on the amount of tooling per figure to meet the $8.99 retail price. But, we feel that they could do better and they should have made a new sized-class figure and price point just for Shredder, as he’s seen below towering over Splinter.

Turtles

Articulation:

Swivel head, ball-jointed shoulders, hinged elbows, hinged armor to the sides of the arms, swivel wrists, hinged-swivel hips, hinged knees, hinged ankles.

Accessories:

None.

Overall:

Not a figure to buy for adult collectors. Kids might like it just to get a villain, but we can’t guarantee that.
