After the glory that was Generations Springer, I cannot wait to add this beefy son of a bitch to my shelf.
Not because it looks bad –because it doesn’t; it looks pretty amazing– but the toy line is going to be a lot of fun. They’ve been steadily improving articulation and detail over the years, and the 35th Anniversary line looks cool, but the new movie line is where it’s at.
New Snake Eyes, Storm Shadow and Red Ninjas? Okay, cool. How about a Bruce-Mother-Fucking-Willis in GI Joe scale, though?
Can you say, “Yipee ki yay?” Well, can you? I couldn’t. I had to Google it to make sure I had the correct spelling.
Can’t wait to put him on my desk with my Ultra-Poseable Amazing Spider-Man! (I got mine for less than $10 at Walmart, but it’s not a bad deal at $12.40.) Maybe I should finally track down an A-Team van from the movie and have him drive that, since aside from KITT, it’s the only vehicle bad enough for him to drive, and while I’ve got an awesome KITT on preorder, I don’t know if he’ll be the right scale to drive the thing.
Now, there’s reports of the line hitting store shelves. I feel like I’m 6 again, hunting down the elusive Turtles so I can have one of each to play with. Dad took me all over the place to make sure I had the core four and the whole array of villains, and I’m looking forward to the hunt with these new guys!
I’m really interested in the classics line, which have the classic-80’s-cartoon-styled Turtles with modern articulation, but I’ll gladly pick up these new ones to test out the line!
Here’s a few pictures I took from a toy forum I read, from a lucky dude that’s found all four already!
I think they look pretty amazing, and I’m going to have some fun with them when I pick them up.
