Michelangelo (Mutant Mayhem)


It's been too long since I've taken a look at the TMNT here on the site. My fandom of such is mainly focused on the 80's/90's incarnations, so these new toys from the Mutant Mayhem movie are strongly resounding with my senses. So far I've been having fun with the various frozen pizzas, breakfast cereal, and oddball candies available from the movie. However I couldn't resist these cool new figures from Playmates. My plan of buying one a week has started with my favorite of the turtles, Michelangelo.

Michelangelo is hard not to like. Pleasantly articulated and that big goofy grin brings him to life. I admittedly like Mutant Mayhem's attempt at making the turtles look like kids. Always have felt like they looked like adults, despite being teenagers. This is clearly a 15 year old getting himself into an adventure. Like the turtle toys of old, Michelangelo comes with a bit of extra weapons in addition to his trademark nunchuks. I especially like the slice of pizza, it feels more important than the throwing stars. Cutely enough, the figures come with normal turtle toys of themselves prior to mutation. That's a fun touch. One toy in, I'm loving this new set.
