TMNT for everyone!!

It seems these days, everybody wants a slice of the TMNT pizza pie. But one thing’s for sure, its a good thing for fans of the Line!

It almost feels as though The Turtles never really went away, with one version or another hanging around in the background. But it wasn’t until Nickelodeon got a hold of the licence a gave the little guys a cool new make over, that tings really kicked off for them again…

Not only did we get the line from Playmates supporting  the cartoon ,teenage-mutant-ninja-turtles-mix-and-match-mutations-playmates-toys-nickelodeon-nick-tmnt_2 with a whole host of fun characters from the show, with many variations upon them( and we wouldn’t expect anything less).We have a whole heap of others joining them.

Revoltech were first to join the party, with this awesome offering.


These figures are a great representation of the characters from the the new cartoon, looking the they jumped straight out of the T.V.

But Next year, seems set to be filled with various interpretations of the little green dudes.

We have the big chunky 1/6 offering from Mondo.


Each figure will come with a host of accessories, including 2 head sculpts, so you can choose to display them either as they looked in the original comics or a slightly more cartoon look. However you choose to display them, we think they look awesome!!

At the recent NYCC we were treated to this visual delight from S.H Figuarts.

With these from Dream EX seemingly sneaking under the radar.

Whilst the prototypes don’t have articulation, apparently the final product will.


Then there is the Grey area of figures, The figures referred to as ‘3rd Party‘. The only company to bring any unofficial TMNT related figures so far, is First Gokin. Their first release was the truly stunning Cerebral (krang)



You can check out our review of this guy here.

Next year looks set to be a very exciting time for for all Fans of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

But we cant help wondering, How many different teams of Turtles can our collections hold?

So, we finally get so see a full colour image from Beelzeboss, of their upcoming upgrade kit for Combiner wars, Optimus Prime! We like it very much. Take a look here.


If you are still feeling unconvinced, then have a look at the direct comparison between the before and after.

Don’t forget, this will make your Prime a fair bit taller also, bringing him more into scale with the rest of your collection.

This is one kit, that we are very much looking forward to getting our hands on. Let us know what you think in the comments.

Hasbro for the win!!!

This last year has seen some of the best Transformers figures coming from Hasbro. I think it is safe to say, that Combiner Wars has been a success for Hasbro.  As fans we have gotten some great figures, without having to pay the high prices the Third party company’s like to charge us. While they may not always be as ‘clever’ as some of the other offering out they, there is no denying the fun to be had!

Even after having to spend a little extra cash on the Perfect Effect upgrade kits, we do end up with awesome figures like this!!



We still have a few things to look forward to from the combiner wars.

While the G2 repaints may not be to everybody’s taste, its always nice to get extra figures.


Next year is set to be just as good, if not better!  We were recently treated to some lovely displays of the Titan War’s line, at the NYCC, which is the line that will be taking over from where Combiner Wars leaves off.

It defiantly seems as though Hasbro has the 3rd party share of the market in its sights! With figures coming from Hasbro to match recently, or soon to be released for other sources, it seems Hasbro do have a plan!

While the level of engineering may not be up to the same standard, do the alternatives warrant the price difference?

Admittedly,  Dx9’s Tyrant is Mp Scale, and rather good looking! But we will be getting a third mode with Hasbro’s version, and a little headmaster Megatron to pilot Galvatron Jet.. If that’s your kind of thing.

But it doesn’t stop there. There was literally a plethora of figures to feast ours eyes upon!!

Theses have got us very excited for next year at Kapow Toys.

But our personal favorite, has to the brake from the G1 norm,  to make a fan favorite, Blaster, into a Base for all the Head masters!!! While he keeps his Ghetto blaster mode he gets a base mode as an extra feature!

All of this, and we are still to see the awesomeness of Titan Wars Fortress Maximus!!!!!

Its safe to say, that we feel its a good time to be a transformers collector!
