Nickelodeon Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Live Action Role Play Turtles Review

Nickelodeon Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Live Action Role Play Turtles 01

Playmates Toys latest wave of the Turtles basic figure collection includes Leo The Knight, Mikey The Elf, Donnie The Wizard, and Raph The Barbarian all based on their appearances in the Nickelodeon animated series episode titled “Mazes and Mutants.” Each figure includes removable roll play masks and accessories.

For those of you still looking for this wave at retail, you might have also noticed that since the movie figures have hit, finding the latest wave of the animated series line has proven a very difficult task as either the movie or animated line appears to be selling at the moment. Knowing this, we bought these at Amazon.com so we can provide you with this review sooner rather than later, and if you too are looking for them, Amazon is your best bet right now (links below).

Availability: August 2014

Sculpt & Paint:

Leo The Knight – Leonardo is dressed in a tin can helmet, cape, oversized belt, steel gauntlets, a garbage can shield, and a sword. The belt prevents his arms from going downward all the way. The helmet and cape are removable and the cape has a duck sculpted on the back, which is kind of odd.

He includes a ball-jointed head, ball jointed hinged shoulders, swivel-hinged elbows, swivel wrists, swivel-hinged hips, swivel-hinged ankles. Unfortunately his shell is only painted green, and not brown as it should have been. He does have a a blue painted helmet across the front, which is a nice touch.

Raph The Barbarian – Raphael is wearing a white with black stripes barbarian wardrobe over his skin and shell, and includes an axe and a removable helmet. The horns on his helmet are crooked and there is a skull in the front. The barbarian wardrobe has a lot of texture showing the fur.

He includes a ball-jointed head, ball jointed hinged shoulders, swivel-hinged elbows, swivel wrists, swivel-hinged hips, swivel-hinged ankles. His shell and chest are painted bronze instead of brown and tan as they should be.

Mikey The Elf – Michelangelo is wearing an elf costume with a removable hat and elf ears, a crossbow and a non-removable arrow sheath. His shell is mostly covered except at the bottom where it is painted orange, and there is some general bleeding over between the orange and green paint on the elf shirt.

He includes a ball-jointed head, ball jointed hinged shoulders, swivel-hinged elbows, swivel wrists, swivel-hinged hips, swivel-hinged ankles.

Donnie The Wizard – Donatello is dressed as a wizard with a purple robe and arms made of hard plastic, a removable vinyl hat and beard, and a staff. This is the most popular figure in the set as he was the hardest to find for us in the beginning, and caused the delay of the review.

He includes a ball-jointed head, ball jointed hinged shoulders, swivel wrists, swivel-hinged hips, swivel-hinged ankles. The press images show the pouches and stars in the robe painted white, and Playmates Toys downgrades it to painting it all in purple, which really takes a way a lot of the figures detail.

Overall:

This is a great wave of Turtles variants, but we hope to see more new characters in the future, and less Turtles variants in the future. The pegs are all packed with only the four Turtles, and no other character from what we’ve seen these past few weeks.

Highly Recommended.
