Toad Baron is in the May and June issues or the regular series, and issues 9 and 10 of Universe.

I really can't wait to see what Toad Baron's deal is.

Until we find out, in my mind I'm imagining something like Hedonismbot

Or, for IDW...

"Shall we adjourn to the buffet?"

I'm also getting a strong "Mad Hatter" type vibe, except with waaay more hookah. And alcohol instead of tea.

He's kind of got a mix in there for me.

A "Imagine if HedonismBot was also the Mad Hatter".

And of course, with a dash of this, as I've said before


Won't stop me from trying to recreate this either


Of all the characters I want to throw memes at, it's Toad Baron???
Honestly, I think I'm going to like him 10000x more than Kitsune or the Rat King, simply because the very concept is a lot more fun.

I think that my wish is granted. Unlike Nick the trusted IDW brand will likely utilize them effectively. I hope mthst my faith isn't a tall order as...

That seems to imply, at least based on my interpretation, that we will be seeing the "Punk Frogs" utilized as minions for Toad Baron. Color me surprised and pleased.

I was introducing the link to site my source. Te Power That Be denied that The Punk Frogs were involved with The Toad Baron. At least in the way it was worded. I was wondering if they could be trained by Karai in Japan to help her take power from Splinter if the case arises that she feels she needs to. She already created Bebop and Rocksteady,but if she picked more competent individuals and trained them herself as a counter to the Turtles it could work. That story is coming up as well.

I liked the Punk Frogs just fine in terms of how they portrayed in the 80s series, though I think they would've benefitted with more appearances like the Neutrinos.

I like the irony in a rude and dangerous sounding group like the Punk Frogs all being really soft spoken and gentle, contrary to what Shredder wanted.

I haven't seen much Nick TMNT as of late, so, I missed out on the Punk Frog episodes. However, I do know that the Punk Frogs did not appear in many OT episodes,

The desire for the Frogs to have individual personalities, has come up. Aside of that (and personality can be a wonderful thing), I would actually like to see them make use of and fight within the water / marshes. I bet that the Frogs would probably win within their own habitat, and a swampy lagoon (for a mutated frog) makes a GREAT ambush spot.

Also, frogs in real life will actually wrassle with each other (even though most of that is for the possession of available mates.) So yeah, more froggy wrassles with the enemies please.

Some frienemy conflicts between The Punk Frogs and Turtles might also help to further 'flesh out' the Frog's personalities.

It'd probably be best to limit them to one-off characters, used only on one occasion then forgotten about until some other iteration. They aren't exactly characters a lot of people remember fondly (besides those who had the toys) and since they never got much personality they wouldn't really add much to a story. But who knows, maybe IDW will find a way to reintroduce them and find some use for them in whatever story they have planned out for the future. If anybody could do it, they could.

That's true. Shredder wanted warriors but got a bunch of fairly peaceful frogs instead.

Pretty sure Shredder just wanted raw mutagen, it seemed to me like the stupid frogs were just an accident he tried salvage. When life gives you lemons and all that, though I guess here it would be "If Mutagen gives you frogs, tonight you'll dine on frog legs".

I think the frogs could've been bad guys throughout season 2, and then turn good by season 3.

Just checked. The canister leaked so Shredder as you say wanted to salvage the situation however he was still training them to be warriors. As I said before he didn't have a choice of what animal to mutate and was stuck with mutated peaceful frogs.
