Nickelodeon Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Shell Flyer Review

Nickelodeon Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Shell Flyer 08

Playmates Toys introduced a new vehicle called the She Flyer based on the hit Nickelodeon series. The Shell Flyer has not been introduced in the series [yet!] 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.

The Shell Flyer was also supposed to be out in the Spring, but did not hit toy shelves until August according to our own toy sighting.

Availability: August 2014

Sculpt & Paint:

The Shell Flyer is an all-new sculpted vehicle rotating peddles, barrel claw, T-frame glider to help it fly, spinning propellers, handle bars, and landing wheels. The vehicle is lightweight and mostly made of cheap plastic that bends. Since Michelangelo is meant to pilot it as he’s shown on the packaging, it does give him the freedom to fly around, grab villains, and carry them away. The barrel claw can be closed to crab a villain by pressing the light green handle on the back of the left side.

Compared to other vehicles in the $9.99 price point, this one is uses less plastic and is overall not made with the greatest quality. It is also unusual to not have any orange in it for Mikey and instead is painted yellow, silver, blue, green, black, and red.

Accessories:

Labels to be applied.

Overall:

Considering we’ve been looking for this vehicle for months at retail, we are disappointed with the overall quality of the plastic and design. This vehicle is only for fans that want a new vehicle for Michelangelo, or to complete their collections.

Recommended.
