Title: New Universal Monsters/TMNT Mash-Up Figures
Post by: TheMadScientist on August 21, 2021, 04:06:09 PM
Saw on Twitter that Target's store system has listings for what appears to be new Universal Monsters/TMNT mash-up figures (https://toynewsi.com/news.php?itemid=39862&utm_source=dlvr.it&utm_medium=twitter). Going off of this, it would be Michelangelo as The Mummy, Raphael as Frankenstein and Leonardo as Hunchback.

Odd that there isn't one for Donatello (at this point anyway), and at the inclusion of the Hunchback. I remember finding the 90's versions in stores when I was a kid, so I think this is a pretty cool idea. That said, I'd definitely prefer if they had the same pairings as the old ones (Michelangelo/Frankenstein, Donatello/Dracula, Leonardo/Wolfman and Raphael/The Mummy).

Don't forget the Creature one.

Interesting idea for NECA, since they have both licenses! I remember a childhood friend having all of them, they made two sets...

Who's The Bride? She don't look like no turtle.

Playmates did these and those mussely UMs (Monsterforce?) Did they do any regular UM figs.? Seems weird to get the license and not make any reg. monsters.

I bought all of these when I was a kid. I still have them.

This is exciting and frustrating at the same time. I've never seen a NECA Turtle in any Target I've ever been to, the scalpers all grab them way too quick. I'll have to wait and see what the final product looks like before I decide if I'm going to feed the scalper's greed.
