Question Retromutagen Ooze

I recently got a couple cans of Ooze and wanted to open one. If I do this is it pretty much a forgone conclusion that it's gonna dry up? Anyone have any tips on how to keep it oozey? Thanks in advance.

I opened a sealed can, it's pretty much pure liquid now, not gel like before. If you want some ooze like stuff to play with the Spider-Man 3 line has goblin slime which is pretty much the same thing.

The symbiote ooze is pretty cool too.

I bought a case and a half about a year and a half ago and the ooze was and still is just fine. The cans are sealed with a plastic cover and then the lid so if you keep the lid on it when it's not in use it should be just fine. There's also a can on Ebay right now from a sealed case and the seller says the ooze is just fine, still oozey. Oh and woo hoo I finally learned how to get an avatar under my name!

Hey man, welcome to the boards. I've been seeing you dropping comments more often, and you seem to know what you're talking about. Always nice to have another toy nut on the boards.

Mine was sealed too, with the little plastic wrap. It's completely possible that mine was kept at abnormal temperatures. But even so, why take the chances when there's better alternatives. This stuff really wasn't made to last forever, or even a year. Kids like me lost most of it in the carpet. Keep the ooze can sealed (idk maybe it's just me but keeping it sealed makes it a little nicer) and substitute your ooze play with goblin slime (the venom slime is cool too, but it's black, try and get the 2 pack with goblin and venom if you like both, ignore the stupid sandman sand) or maybe get the stuff in the quarter machines like at k-mart/toys r us.

It shouldn't be hard to make actually. I talked to my dad who is a food scientist and I think he said it's a completely lethal substance when in powder form, but when liquid is added it makes it totally non-toxic. And that the powder can be bought at certain chemical stores.

Thanks for the tips, but I couldn't resist opening one can. I still have one regular and one Foot ooze sealed. I wanted one of the premutated figures to add to the collection. He reminds me of the little turtles from the first movie.

"Radical, radical, radical!" That part was always so weird to me.
It seems like I've seen different turtles though, are there different types of turtles that came in the ooze? Does anybody know how many?

I never had the turtle you have pictured above. I have like a dozen of the glow in the dark baby turtles, where they actually look like turtles on all fours. I also have a brown baby splinter from the ooze. I might have the one above in a sealed can of ooze, but I definitely never had that as a kid. Looks really cool.

Hey, I appreciate it, thanks! I've pretty much been collectin' TMNT for 20 years now but it still amazes me at the things i've learned lately though. I never had that stand-up turtle fig when I was little either, so needless to say I was really surprised when I opened a can recently and got him out. As a child I always forgot (or was too lazy) to put my ooze back in the can so it always dried up in my Sewer Playset and I had to scrape it off I've been meaning to tell you that your nic brought back a memory long forgotten, I used to drink the heck outta ectocooler! I also remember that slimer candy in what looked like a toothpaste tube, you ever have that? I love the real ghostbusters back in the day. Also, as a child we made ooze in school as a project but my dog ate it when I got home. Steven

Oh this pic brings back so many memories. Those turtles were awesome.
I've been wanting to buy a can of ooze for a while just to get one of these guys but after this thread I am going to do it, that's it!! I had forgotten about how cool they were.

I never had the glowing little turtles as a kid though. I had this one and the splinter that came in the purple foot ooze.


Congrats Raphsation !! I am glad that you opened one. It's almost impossible to resist. I am sure the ooze will be just fine.

I am still trying to build a set of four of those, as well as four of the standard ones that glow in the dark.

This is just an idea but maybe if you put a square of Plastic Wrap over the container then put the lid back on?

Also, I won a lot of turtles the lady had no pictures of the standing turtles, so when I got the lot and opened the thing I was amazed to find them, had never seent hem before.

These are few and far between I wouldn't sell a one if I were you.

I finally got a duplicate Splinter off ebay a while back, they don't come up often.

The only problem with one of my standing turtles is he doesn't stand so well.

I have a couple 2k3 ooze cans and they look fine. I remember awhile back having some different type of ooze that i opened and played around with, but after a couple years it started growing all kinds of crap in it and threw it out. It was nasty.

I'll try to find them and take pics. I know one is out of the package I think it came with a shredder. The others are still in the package with the figures they come with, but those have been moved and are at my lake residence. I'll try to find them in the boxes when I go there over Memorial Day.
