Anyway, growing up I caught the tail-end of MOTU and TMNT consumed me as a kid, and I love both toy lines. But these don't in any way appeal to me. Sort of incredible it hadn't already been done.
I guess it’s because GI Joe happened long ago and in hindsight we view it more negatively as it deserves to be, whereas MOTUR is happening here and now?

I've always wanted a figure of mutated Jon from The Last of the Viking Heroes. Maybe this series will yield some parts that will make a decent kitbash of Jon.
Also curious to see what they do with Casey and Shredder.
I made a MOTU based Foot Clan a few years ago I think turned out alright.

Hopefully, Playmates will reissue the 11 inch Krang’s Android Body because of this deal.

Or the 4-inch version.

I think Mutated He-man & Mouser Trapjaw look the best. I kind of think the turtles are lacking a little something extra. I also like that the Helmet on Man-at-arms is shaped like the Shredders. Did anyone else notice that?

They look cool to be sure but are exactly the sort of thing I would regret buying after the 90 day return period ends.

The figures will come with brand new crossover mini-comics, with art by Freddie E. Williams II. (Artist behind the Batman/TMNT trilogy as well as that proposed He-Man/TMNT comic pitch that surfaced a while back.)

I'm loving this Shredder design. It looks cool. He's got the 2003 Foot Ninja insignia on his chest. That's interesting right!? the 2003 series is hardly ever referenced. I like that he's not just Shredder with Skeletor references. That would have been too easy. I'm really interested in these.

I don't know what I was hoping these would look like but this isn't it somehow. I can't put my finger on what exactly isn't working for me but I'm oddly "meh" on them. I think I was hoping they'd be more OG Playmates or OG MOTU. Instead they're a weird blend that doesn't really homage either line all that well.

Having said that, given the opportunity I'll likely grab the turtles and Man-at-Arms. Aaaand probably Krang. Trap-Jaw is extremely clever but he doesn't look right at all with all that white. He-Man is just confusing, I don't understand the concept there.

Not sure why the current trend is "mashup" instead of just doing Turtles on MOTU O sculpt styles.

You know?
