Favorite B-List/C-List Toys from TMNT Lines?

Hey! I'm looking to get some older TMNT toys (anything before 2012), and I specifically want to buy B-List/C-List characters. No turtles (variants are cool though), April, Casey, Splinter, Shredder, Foot Soldier, Bebop/Rocksteady, etc. Any suggestions?

As far as the original toyline goes, pretty much any mutant character is a good suggestion, they're all so rad. Some favorites of mine:

-Muckman
-Wingnut
-Dirtbag
-Scumbug
-Hothead
-Pizzaface
-Slash
-Mutagen Man
-Usagi Yojimbo
-Napoleon Bonafrog
-Mondo Gecko

The robot ones are dope too:
-Robotic Bebop & Rocksteady
-Chrome Dome
-Metalhead
-Fugitoid

Next Mutation's wave of toys oddly featured a Mirage character that never appeared in the show, Elite Guard. One of the illest Playmates figures ever, to me.

4kids' toyline was less adventurous but for what the figures lack in zaniness or articulation they make up for with on-screen accuracy & paint application. My recs:

-Fugitoid
-Dark Turtles
-Turtlebot
-Foot Tech Ninja
-Utrom
-Usagi

Thanks for the suggestions, Powder! The ones in bold were a few I were considering, so I might get those!

Hothead is definitely a good choice. The sculpt & paint detail are some of Playmates' absolute best. Plus there's the novelty of him being an Archie character. He even comes with a hat!

Turtlebot leaves a bit to be desired articulation wise, but it does have clamp claws & a shell that opens up to reveal jets, if I recall correctly. Always liked the translucent accessories, too.

Besides some of the ones from the original line that Powder mentioned, I actually really love the style of all the Next Mutation figures.

Mona Lisa is a good one for the classy TMNT fan who enjoys parties on yachts.

Me too! Silver and the TMNT from that line are some of my favorite TMNT figs in my collection!

It's been fun collecting most of the figures that come with little mini-figures/sidekicks. Such as Muckman (Joe Eyeball), Napoleon Bonafrog (Mutant Fly), Ray Fillet (Fish Stix), and Wingnut (Screwloose). As well as Sergeant Bananas (Larry the Lemur), Walkabout (kid kangie) and Monte Moose (bob the beaver). Oh and of course Halfcourt with (Ruff the Ref). And others, etc...

All without breaking the bank. Just need time and wait for good deals.

Metalhead has always been a real fave, I recommend.

Fish Stix? Don't you mean Bubbla the Glubblub?

I really like the Nanotech Monster from the 2k3 line. It's one of the only toys in that line that reminds me of the Classic TMNT figures; I guess because it's so asymmetrical and weird looking.

Bubbla the Glublub was the name of Man Ray's fish/crab companion in the Archie Comics. Fish Stix is the name of Ray Fillet's sidekick on the Playmates toys cardback.

Some people say that the vintage line is its own universe. I guess I could have said "A water-breathing, breaded buddy." As stated on the back of Ray's card. Oh well.
