Nickelodeon Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Newtralizer Figure Review

Nickelodeon Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Newtralizer 01

Newtralizer is an all new character introduced in the new Nickelodeon series. The character is an alien, not a mutant as commonly confused by fans, and is native to the Kraang’s home Dimension X.

Playmates Toys needs to reconsider how they pack the new case assortments as Rahzar, Slash, Newtralizer, and Splinter in Dojo Gear are packed 1 per case of 24. We’ve expressed our concerns in the past about some of these case ratio’s, and now we are seeing the four main Turtles characters flooding the pegs while most if not all villains are sold out. It’s a safe bet that everyone already has the four main Turtles, plus figures from older waves. It is doubtful at this point that parents will continue to buy the older figures in the case assortments that collectors already have, and the last thing we want for this line is to over flow at retail.

What needs to be done and our advice to Playmates Toys, is to pack case ratio’s such as 3x Rahzar, 2x Slash, 2x Newtralizer, and 2x Splinter in Dojo Gear while leaving 3 spots for older figures such as Kraang, Spider Bytez, and Casey Jones. A more interesting case ratio will appeal to your shoppers and make it easier for them to buy the new figures. Again, despite the fact that retailers want the four Turtles in each new case ratio, we believe at some point they will no longer sell as people already have them. We ask that you try a case ratio such as the one we suggested as a test run.

Sculpt & Paint:

Newtralizer features an all new sculpt and has some differences in paint applications compared to the prototype shown in the press image shown below.

The character resembles the appearance of a frog and includes alien technology to help him fight the Kraang. His armor includes a belt, shoulder plates, three straps that connects the belt and shoulder plates, two weaponized bracelets, a leg holster for his knife, leg pouches with ammo attached to them, an antenna on his back, and a double-bladed axe on his tail that’s painted the same brown color as his skin.

He includes a disc-shaped weapon that he can fold through his fingers, or grab it with his hand. The knife can be stored in his holster or his hand.

The figure is painted in brown skin, grey armor and accessories, and orange deco on his chest. The prototype shown below would have vastly improved the overall final deco choices.
