2012 In (Cool Toy) Review: Mid-Sized Line of the Year
Published by Rich on January 4, 2013 at 06:46 PM CST |


The heroes in a half-shell are back and Playmates' Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles line is our choice for mid-sized toy line of the year. The latest incarnation of the turtles comes in two flavors; a line stylized after Nickelodeon's animated series and a collector line true to the look of the classic turtles loaded with articulation. While the Nick animated line may not resonate with old-school collectors, they're well sculpted, are equipped with a generous number of weapons, and have a nice compliment of accessories including several vehicles and the massive 4-foot tall Secret Sewer Lair playset. The classic-style collector series figures stand in at 6-inches and sport 34 points of articulation?that's right 34?including fingers and toes. Judging by the empty pegs at retail stores across the country, Playmates did a good job meeting expectations of both kids and collectors alike and we give them kudos for the four-shell treatment.
