Rise of TMNT Playmates Toys Mikey Review : Store release


Today on Nickelodeon Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles premieres on TV, starting the new series and giving the Ninja Turtles all new adventures.  Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles gives all new designs, I shared my reviews of the designs for each of the Turtles earlier this year.  For the release of the new series, to celebrate we’re now sharing reviews of the 2018 Fall line of Rise of the TMNT toy line.  Starting with Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Michelangelo Basic Figure.

The video gives the first reaction of opening up these toys, though for the four turtles I got the San Diego set first.  That video will be shared after the four Turtles from the store release is uploaded.  And it will include a comparison write up of San Diego Turtles to the store release.  This story is basing thoughts only on the store release that is shown in the video.

The video was filmed at Playmates Toys in their Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles room.  On this day I got to film 13 reviews, the nine action figures being released in Fall as well as the four Giant Turtles.  Michelangelo being the first review, as he is normally my favorite Turtle.

The toy itself is smaller than I’m use too for Ninja Turtles, which makes it hard to have him interact with older Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles toys.  These are smaller than even the 2012 toy line.  This fact does make me a bit sad as I’ve always liked mixing my toys up with each other.  Currently on Instagram I am having different sets of the Ninja Turtles meet each other, where people can see how small this Michelangelo is compared to some of the older toys.

I do like that this small version of Michelangelo has a lot of articulation making it easy to pose them.  From sitting to standing, this Mikey can give a lot of expression through the amount of positions you can place the toy in.  This is a feature I really do like about this toy.

I look forward to getting to know more of this Michelangelo through the Nickelodeon series Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles now on TV!  And I plan to keep up with the Playmates Toys line of figures as they come out.

What do you think of the Rise of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles toys? Are you planning to collect them?  Let us know your thoughts, comments and questions below!
