Hello, First off I'd like to comment on the new TMNT figures...at first I was mildly impressed by them...I kept thinking were the old TMNT figures that much more impressive?...So I took them out and said to myself well obviously the new figures look better...but is the playability still there for the youngins? ....So the new TMNT would sit on my shelf for display...and I had barely touched them as it was after I took them out of there packaging...but then today I decided to take them down and look at them a little closer... and there actually very cool!...The articulation provides alot more movement than what I originally thought ...(at first I thought the Mikey figure couldn't hold a pair of nunchuku's between both his hands...figuring his arms were positioned too far apart) it helped that I went to one guys review page and seen how he had his TMNT positioned...and I was thinking...geez I didn't know they could be posed that way...lol ...to go on...I'm still not huge on there leg molds...but hey not all that bad. One more thing though before I go... I have the armored vehicle and the cycle..both of which are cool...but I can't help but miss some of the toys from the late 80's and early 90's...is it just me...or did vehicles have more to them back then? Like the original van opened on the side to allow for a Turtle to spring out and shoot an enemy...I liked that touch...but it's not on the armored truck...it would had been cool if there was more detail to the inside...as far as decals or stickers...and because they don't have the door on the side that opens...have the back door open and make it so that the cycle can sit in the truck and drive out like Raph did in one of the TMNT episodes!...but anyway...just minor complaints... but I do have hope for the playsets...I really thought there was no hope for playsets after Hasbro's vicious re-painting of the same batcave over and over again.. and the o-kay MOTU castle.....but I do think that playmates has done it right again...and will make a pretty nice sewer playsets...atleast the pics appear to give that sort of reaction...tell what ya think...
