Hey folks. I'm desperate. Awhile ago, I purchased complete (but loose) Metal Mutant figures from Ebay. These are the ones with removable armor that can become an animal. The problem is, I can't for the life of me figure out how to turn the armor into the animals. I have scoured the net looking for high quality pics or YouTube videos but to no avail. Is there anyone here who can help me or point me in the direction of a website with high quality pics?

It'd be much appreciated.

Thanks all!

Do you want pictures of the animal forms or of the way to put them together? It would be difficult to do the latter since many of the connection points are inside the armor.

If I could just find some good quality pics of their animal forms, I think I could figure it out. That'd be so awesome!

I was going to put to gether the animal forms with the spare Metal Mutant parts I have, but I thought these might make it a bit clearer. The only problem is I only have the instruction sheets for Shredder and Raphael.

If and when you get these put together, please please post pics of them. I've never seen them put together before.

Thanks tmntman, thats at least a start. Once I figure out these two I might gain insight as to how the others are done. Yer a rockstar!

Phoenix (missing the sais that form the tail)

Bear (I am not sure how the head attaches)

Tiger (missing the sword/tail)

From what I can tell, Leonardo's dragon spirit requires his sword to assemble which I don't have handy.

And I am not sure exactly how Michaelangelo's animal is formed.

thank you for posting those! Seems like one of the designers at the time was on a voltron kick. Which I like :)

I would think that they took more from Saint Seiya/Knights of the Zodiac. And given that these were originally from the Japanese OVA TMNT just like the Super Mutants and Mutant Masters, that wouldn't be surprising.

One wonders if the 1st OVA was more Voltron-esque.
