Playmates Toys Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Casey’s Slamboni Review

Playmates Toys Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Casey's Slamboni  12

 

Playmates Toys released their highly anticipated unmasked Casey Jones action figure and Casey’s Slamboni Vehicle pack and these are now being found at brick & mortar stores, and Amazon.com. Casey’s Slamboni was renamed after the correct term, Zamboni, a machine that cleans the ice at rinks.

This vehicle has not been shown on the Nickelodeon animated series, and most likely something that Playmates Toys cooked up as a vehicle to go with this new version of Casey Jones.

Availability: October 2015

Sculpt & Paint:

Casey’s Slamboni is an all new sculpted vehicle and resembles the likeness of a Zamboni, a machine that is used to clean ice at rinks for skating and hockey. The vehicle measures roughly 9″ length x 3 3/4″ wide (depending on where you measure from) x 4 1/4″ tall. It features four firing pucks at the front, weapon holsters for Casey’s bat and hockey stick, an opening hood to store an additional figure such as Michelangelo, and an exclusive Casey Jones figure only available in this set. It is painted in a turquoise, off white, grey, and orange deco, with a black skull painting on the hood.

Casey Jones uses the body of the previous figure with the goalie glove, roller blades, a backpack to store the accessories, and comes with a newly tooled head sculpt that’s unmasked. He is painted in a grey, black, brownish-red paint scheme with a white bandana on his head.

Accessories:

4 firing pucks, bat, hockey stick.

Overall:

Casey’s Slamboni is an odd choice for a vehicle, since it’s best used on a rink rather than used on the street to fight crime. It’s slow moving, and it hasn’t been given any Turtle tech or updates other than the firing pucks. Even on the ice, Casey will have limited range of motion with the vehicle as it can’t do much to help the turtles. It’s understandable that Playmates Toys wanted to use a vehicle like this for Casey’s hockey skills, but he needs something faster and with more firing power to fight the growing number of enemies and threats on the show. Especially something he can take on the street.

Casey on the other hand, is the gem here and the update to the figure is superb.

Recommended.
