wow, always loved the original playmates tmnt x universal line. for some reason, though, the design here isn't thrilling me. i'll pass, personally.

i hope super 7 still gets to do the original playmates designs. i imagine this is the final nail in the coffin of their 'gentleman's agreement' with neca.

I've very impressed with both the figure and the commercial! Kudos to DGDX Animation!

So Playmates has had two eras of "Monster Turtles" (only the first being officially licensed) and now NECA gives us their spin. Playmates swapped the Turtle/Monster pairings for their classic/Nick toon lines so I'm wondering if NECA will duplicate any of the pre-existing pairings or once again mix everything up.

Playmates/Universal Classic
Leo: Wolfman/Creature from the Black Lagoon
Raph: Mummy/The Metaluna Mutant
Mikey: Frankenstein Monster/Invisible Man
Don: Dracula
April: The Bride

Playmates Nick 2k12
Leo: Mummy/Hunter
Raph: Vampire/Hunter
Mikey: Werewolf
Don: Frankenstein's Monster

NECA/Universal
Leo: ???
Raph: Frankenstein's Monster
Mikey: ???
Don: ???
???: ???

One more set, shuffling the line-up and you could get a team of Frankenstein Turtles. Or Dracula Turtles.

Seems likely!

Although with the official Universal license secured, I can't help but think "Hunchback" will be something of a lost opportunity to make the most of the tie-in. Hasn't been done before, but was anybody really clamoring for an Igor (who actually didn't come around until "Son of Frankenstein") Turtle? I mean, the hunchback is a side-kick, not the main attraction.

Yeah, Universal did do a famous version of Victor Hugo's, though I've never really considered Quasimodo a "Universal Monster." I guess that will be interesting to see.

Same,not too excited for that choice when we seen waaaaaaaaaaay better characters being used. With necas history or top heavy characters not being very stable is another worry of mine for leo
