Offical WWE TMNT Toy discussion

Revelead at SDCC although no pictures were allowed there are 4 WWE/TMNT Figures on the way.
Leo/Cena
Don/Undertaker
Mikey/Savage
Raph/Sting

http://www.toyhypeusa.com/2016/07/21...les-interview/

Quote:
Playmates Toys will be offering new 6″ Turtles that are a mash up between Turtles and WWE. While no photography was allowed, we were the first to see these in person even before WWE. These are quite an interesting take on both franchises and we feel that it brings them together nicely.

The figures will include:

Mikey as Randy Savage
Leo as John Cena
Raph as Sting
Donnie as The Undertaker

These figure will have slightly less articulation than the other 6″ figure offerings. They will also come with some WWE accessories like a garbage can, steel chair that does not fold, and various other accessories.

They will also be available at Wal-Mart first in November 2016, then everywhere else in Spring 2017

since this kind of took over the usagi thread i figured i'd make one for it specifically.

Discuss all news/notes/opinions below.

Well... no offense but you could've asked them to move it to the 2016 toys discussion. I don't think their important enough to have their own thread considering their only making the turtles and its just a small branding of a wave. Also I think I may have seen the Leo one in a YT vid showing off Playmates SDCC. But it may not be it. I'll try to find it later.

No, I disagree. This did kinda warrant it's own thread if only because the main 2016 toy thread has so many pages you'd never even know about it unless someone PM-ed you about it. I'm surprised they went with Macho Man. He seems to be the only classic of the line up since Undertaker still wrestles like once a year or so.

i can def see Mikey as Savage but Raph as sting is kind of a head scratcher. But Donnie and Undertaker are nothing alike but i approve of that cause Undertakers my favorite wrestler haha.

Character wise i'd go Raph as Lesnar or Stone cold but wouldn't translate to a toy well, so i understand the Sting choice.

The Raph/Sting connection I think goes with the whole vigilante angle etc although hed probably be better off as Randy Orton.

I kinda wish they never mixed wwe and turtles. It's lame if you ask me. Sure I grew up on stone cold and dx, but I don't like the idea. Especially with Playmates doing it.

But I'll still get Donnie.

Ok wrestling AND TMNT fans.....I love it.
I for one was extremely excited but that was because I assumed they were the basic nick assortment with wrestler paint apps. I've always been biased to 5 inch figures. Maybe because the first figures I ever had were TMNT but I just love that scale and the first Nick turtles are my absolute favorite turtles.

...anyway as a lover of both franchises a Splinter in a Ric Flair robe would just be so....just....damn.

...the Owen Hart thing was harsh.

I think this whole idea is stupid but I agree with you. Pretty funny after all these years of Macho being a black sheep of WWF/E he's chosen over hogan probably due to all his legal stuff last year.

I appreciate what they were trying to do here but they should've just done STUMP variants

Haha, I never would have thought I'd see something like this. It's a crazy idea but I like it. I grew up watching Savage and Hogan, and as a young kid I loved DX and the Brood and the Hardy Boyz. I still watch WWE for laughs when I catch it on. I'll get Michelangelo, because Savage was always my favorite classic wrestler.

WWE youtube channel has a vid of Zack Ryder opening Leo as John Cena. Apparently, he will be doing the other 3 videos as well.

The Raphael/Sting video went up today.

Also on pixel Dans YouTube channel he mentioned that he saw the TMNT/WWE figures behind closed doors at SDCC and was under NDA not to talk about them till the reveal but there were more shown than just these 4.
