Nickelodeon Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Hot Rod With Hot Rod Mikey Review

Nickelodeon Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Hot Rod With Hot Rod Mikey 01

Playmates Toys introduced a new vehicle called the Hot Rod with exclusive Hot Rod Mikey action figure based on the hit Nickelodeon series. The Hot Rod has not been introduced in the series [yet!], nor has Mikey been seen wearing that leather jacket. It’s unusual for Playmates Toys to introduce a vehicle like this that has not been shown on the show. It’s risky for them, except the Turtle Blimp, as that was based on the vintage design. This new design is something that’s a mix of a classic pick up truck you’d see on a farm 50 years ago, and has a twist of imagination by Donatello with its own racing engine, cannon, and racing wheels.

Availability: August 2014

Sculpt & Paint:

The Hot Rod vehicle is an all-new sculpt and is based on the body of a classic pickup truck painted in red, with a racing engine, missile launcher, a chicken in the spinning cage, and can seat one figure. The missile launcher on the back has two handles on either side for Hot Rod Mikey or another figure, but nothing for the figure to stand on while the vehicle is moving. The missile launcher also rotates, and swivels up and down.

Hot Rod Mikey uses some retooling with a non-removable black helmet with goggles, leather jacket, leather gloves, while maintaining all the standard articulation. His nunchucks can be stores on his back and also may break in half at the center of the chain if force is applied (like the one’s with 2012 Mikey, these are very fragile).

Articulation:

Hot Rod Mikey – Ball Jointed Head, Swivel Hinge Shoulders, Swivel Hinge Elbows, Swivel Hinge Hips, Swivel Hinge Knees

Accessories:

2x Nunchucks, missile.

Overall:

Despite some of the flaws mentioned above, this is actually a nice looking vehicle and we really like Hot Rod Mikey.

Highly Recommended.
