TMNT: Classic Collection!

Postby BrandonDaCollector » Thu Jan 23, 2014 5:52 am

Well, after MOTU had gone sadly out in the late 80s, I was searching for the one that could be good as it, one turned out to be almost as fantastic and it was the TMNT and thus became My new childhood love but MOTU was still My number 1! That being said, I was lucky and got most the vintage TMNT line but I stopped with the figures in 95 because of My life changes but I did collect the 2003 series till it was no more but IMO it wasn't as fun an the vintage line. So 20 or so years after the prime and fun of TNMT for Me in the 80s and very early 90s, I find out that Playmates (wow they still got it!) has made a new classic collection for the adult collector. I was in amazement by this because they looked so great and were fairly good in scale with MOTUC :shock: So with the help of gift cards I was able to get them! Go here to see the origin of them please!

Here is a few pics I took, I have been taking things slow recovering from My injury.

So there you have it. I am so pleased with these figures. Now guys, talk about what do you think of the Classic Collection. How much do you like them? Do you own them? Who do you want to be made next? I will be happy with April O'Neil, Splinter, Casey Jones, The Shredder, a Foot Soldier, and Krang and then I all good! Sure, Triceratron and Baxter and a few others would be great them are My musts!

For many more pics in better detail go here to the Virtual Ninja Turtle Museum and go here to the VNTM as well!

OK guys, talk about this wonderful subject:)

I just opened them dudes up and while they are fun figures overall, they are not perfect. You gotta watch out for the paint apps but MORE importantly, the shoulder joints on ALL 4 TURTLES! They are very stiff and will not move. I had to get My small knife and gently stick it and pry the joint open very slightly and remove some access plastic which this should not have been an issue IMO but of course it was :roll: If you do know what I talkin' about then that is good but if you don't then you'll want to do what I did otherwise things ain't gonna work out.

With all of that said, I still want more characters in the series, it has major potential of being a tremendous line and one of the best that Playmates has ever made!

Hey thanks for sharing, Brandon. Any chance you'll be doing shots of the turtles and Rocksteady and Bebop out of package in some cool poses and scaling? Hee hee!

We'll see, no promises. I'm still not 100% as things are still difficult for Me. I hope you understand :)

I heard from a friend of mine they are canceling the Shredder and Krang figures, anyone got any updated news on this? I really had hoped this line would continue at least to get the main characters out.
