I would have sh** the bed as a kid if this was a thing back then. In a good way.

I don't know that kids today will care much. "Why are the Ninja Turtles dressed up like those unfunny ladies in that Ghostobliterators movie?"

This is what I was thinking. I would have loved these, but kids today? Probably not as much. I'm thinking today would more likely be the turtles dressed as Marvel characters over GB.

Raph Ironman
Leo Cap America
Don Hulk
Mikey Thor.

C'mon, it's easy Playmates lol.

The alignments are all wrong.
Clearly the folks at Playmates didn't read the IDW Crossover event.

Yep, it would have made much more sense

Mike should have been Ray

Leonardo should have been Winston

These are a pain to look at.
Playmates: always find a way to reach new lows.

I... don't know how to feel about these.

If Playmates were smart, they'd be doing these wacky variants in the style of the original toyline. C'mon guys. Revive it. You're clearly marketing these to 30 year olds in the first place.

Someone once made a Ghostbusters custom using Pro Pilot Don as the base & it was perfect. They should've just gone in that direction.

At first these were really disturbing to me. I agree with Powder that they should've gone retro with them. BUT on the positive side, my 4 year old will love these. He recently snagged all my Real GB figures and since I'm missing Ray he uses Leo. Despite my lack of support for modern Playmates, I'll definitely be getting them for him.

Raph should be Venkman, Mikey should be Ray, and Leo should be Winston. How can you f*ck up this badly? It's like they see Bill Murray and automatically think "comedic actor? lol must be Mikey".
