Unfortunately, Playmates tried to save the toy line in the same year that the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers blew up in popularity.
Was Warrior Metalhead the same figure as Metalhead Michelangelo? I found it to be an odd variant especially since it was reminiscent of just one turtle.

I think Playmates was trying to produce a second set of turtle variants for the last basic wave of 1991 (7th wave) like the disguised turtles (which I realize now were not a sub-wave). Leo was a police officer, Don had the firefighter suit, so I guess Mike was the certified skateboard instructor? Iím not sure what happened to Raph or why Mike was the basic wave turtle variant figure that didnít fit in with the other variants. The 7th wave (Skateboardiní Mike wave) was lackluster (for the most part) opposed to the 5th wave (Slash wave) that it was trying to be.
On the one hand, the 7th wave was what children of the 80s and 90s wanted the 5th wave to be. There should have been 1st movie turtles, Shredder, Splinter, and a Foot Soldier in the 5th wave with Ray Filet, Panda Khan, Fugitoid, Slash, and etc..On the other hand, the 5th wave was a notch above the 7th wave because of Undercover Donatello, Space Cadet Raphael, Sewer Samurai Leo, Fugitoid, Triceraton, and Panda Khan. Those were all great figures that appealed to Turtles collectors of all ages in 1990.
