Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Movie 2014 Turtle Assault With Leonardo Target Exclusive Review

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Movie 2014 Turtle Assault With Leonardo Target Exclusive Review

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Movie Target Exclusive Turtle Assault Van 01

Playmates Toys released a Target Exclusive Turtle Assault vehicle along with a repaint of the basic Leonardo figure that is only available in this set. While the Turtle Assault is the same as the standard edition sent to all other retailers, there are some significant paint app differences with this exclusive Leonardo figure. The set costs $39.99 compared to the standard $29.99 just for the Turtle Assault.

Availability: July 2014

The Turtle Assault features a two seater in the front, a ramp and dune buggy at the back, a projectile, winch line, satellite, and 2 sheets of labels that have to be manually added. The vehicle’s front opens by pulling the front piece down, where two figures can be seated. There is also a skylight with an opening on the roof for Raphael, and Michelangelo is seated at the dune buggy.

The ramp can be lifted by the push button on the side and once it’s automatically lifted, the dune buggy comes rolling down. The Turtle Assault does have to be on the floor for the mechanism to work. The rear doors also have to be open. We find that the ramp and dune buggy is wasted space and it could have been used to seat other figures like two Turtles, Splinter, and April O’Neil. This was our feeling when it was revealed to us back at New York Toy Fair 2014.
Another concern we have about this vehicle is that the side view mirrors do not lock into place, and the top peg keeps falling out, leaving it hanging as shown in some of the pictures in our gallery. The pegs are too small for the holes and as a result they do not stay into place.

The Leonardo figure included has some significant differences in paint apps compared to the standard single carded figure. This figure has a darker green paint, a tan chest, eye balls, beige shell, light brown boots with no white stripes, and a darker blue bandana, white bandages on his leg, and also comes with lighter grey swords.

Overall:

The Turtle Assault and the repaint of Leonardo are excellent and we very excited to see Leo has eye balls this time around. While not perfect, it’s a nice set to own.

Highly Recommended.
