Nickelodeon Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Turtle Blimp Review

Nickelodeon Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Turtle Blimp 01

The fan-favorite Turtle Blimp makes a triumphant return this year in Playmates Toys Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles toy line based on the Nickelodeon series. While the Turtle Blimp has not been shown in the new animated series, they went ahead and released it knowing that fans of the original Turtles line would be interested in this, and introducing the kids to something new to them.

The Turtle Blimp features a 30″ blimp on top that you have to blow up yourself, and a seated compartment below that holds 5 figures.

Availability: July 2014

Sculpt:

The Turtle Blimp features an all new sculpt and is based on the vintage Turtle Blimp design. The Blimp measures 31″ length and 20″ high from the top of the blimp to the bottom of the base (in this case Casey Jones feet). The balloon is shaped like a turtle and has a hole at the top where you can put a string threw it and hang it from the ceiling. The balloon is also detachable from the undercarriage.

The undercarriage can hold 5 figures, 1 at the cockpit, and 4 at the hooks and a rappelling system. This can be used to lower or raise the Turtles for a sneak attack or a getaway. Casey Jones has some trouble staying in place and it’s hard to get his hands to reach the handle bars.

Overall:

The detail on the balloon and especially the undercarriage is very impressive. Playmates Toys have done an incredible job on this and is great for both new and old Turtle fans.

Highly Recommended.
