SDCC Toys “R” Us Exclusive Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Classics Wave 3 Review

SDCC ToysRUs Exclusive Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Classics Wave 3 16

Let us be the first to squash the rumor about these being the same molds used as wave 1, and to inform the world that these are all-new sculpted figures and do not share any existing parts with wave 1.

Playmates Toys third wave of 6″ Classics Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are based on the 1990 Live-Action Movie and designed by Jim Henson himself. These were released as Toys “R” Us San Diego Comic-Con 2014 exclusives at the show, and online starting July 24th. At this time, these are still available to order online (links below).

This is a bold move for Playmates Toys as the majority of potential customers that would be interested in these are at least in their 30’s, and not necessarily something that mom’s and kids would buy at $19.99 each. The first wave was based on the late 80’s/early 90’s Turtles from the animated series, and the second wave was non other than Rocksteady and Bebop also based on the animated series. For those of you that do not already know, wave 4 will include Kraang in his body and Shredder were announced at SDCC 2014 will be based on the animated series.

We hope that these sell well enough to show Playmates Toys that there is still interest in this movie franchise and that hopefully they will continue on to make Rahzar, Tokka, and other A-list characters.

Availability: July 2014

Sculpt & Paint:

All 4 Turtles are newly sculpted figures and share the same basic body with each other, and new head sculpts. Their skin is smooth but shows the muscles and there is a lot of texture and detail sculpted on their shells. There is also the same scratches shown on all four shells.

Donatello and Leonardo have shoulder straps attached to their belts that go around their shoulder and are attached to the belts on their backs. Leonardo, Michelangelo, and Donatello have their sheaths on the back, while  Raphael has his attached to the front of his belt.

Each Turtle are painted with green skin, brown shells, paddings, belts, and straps. Their chests are painted in a lighter brown.

Articulation:

Ball-jointed head, ball-jointed hinged shoulders, doube-hinged elbows, swivel wrist, 3x hinged fingers, ball-jointed chest, ball jointed hips, swivel thighs, double-hinged knee, swivel-hinged feet, 2x hinged toes.

Accessories:

Signature weapons, figure stands.

Overall:

These are excellent figures of the 1990 movie Turtles and we hope to see more made in the future.

Highly Recommended.
