Random Collection 12

Throughout the years of being a Ninja Turtle fan, my collection has been growing.  Every year I get something new that joins the collection.  Growing since 1989, I have over 500 Ninja Turtle toys out of package and over 300 in package, as well as books, animation cels, original comic art, scripts and so much more.  To cover all of this on Cowabunga Corner is not something I really think I can do.  Though I get a lot of questions about my collection, so I figured I could do random stories weekly to share one item in my collection.

This week I’m sharing a Metal Mutation Shredder toy.  This is a toy that I only have in package and purchased off of eBay.  It is Shredder from the Japanese anime in its Japanese package.  There are two anime episodes out there, Super Mutation and Metal Mutation.  This one is based off of Metal Mutations.

I first learned of the anime in 1997 when a friend sent me a copy of the VHS which had both episodes on it.  Though in 2000, I got my hands on a DVD with subtitles.  The DVD had ads for the Ninja Turtle toys from the series.  Since then I’ve been looking for them.  I’ve found a few, that I keep in package.  I’m hoping to someday get the full set.

These toys have armor that come with them.  Shredder is that of a white tiger.  The armor fits on Shredder, though once off of him can be put together as a white tiger.  It’s really a cool toy done by Playmates toys.

Anyone else collect these?  Please feel free to share a review below.  All questions and comments are welcomed.
