    This TMNT collab looks surprisingly solid

    BMac wasn't lying; this might be one of the coolest toys they've made, so far. Not for some, "black magic," engineering, or whatever, but...the swappable heads, and belt buckles, the robust accessories (one of which seems to double as a pizza, which...come on, that's just cute), and a, "proper," alternate robot mode configuration - this feels like as complete a toy set can get, y'know? That is play feature. It feels weirdly sincere, in the way that they didn't seem to try to arbitrarily mark-up this package (like, this definitely would've been another extortionate 4-pack, in a worse timeline). Weird thing to say about a corporate product, I know, but I'm...rather endeared by this, haha.

    I like it! The shell top turning into the robot mode shell is fun.

    Somewhere, Legacy Crankcase is complaining and cursing up a Silverstreak bluestreak he got shorted on his pair of Triggercon cannons.

    You might as well budget out extra and pick up a BW Transmetal Rattrap from eBay as your stand-in for Splinter.

    I pitched Vincent. Would be one step back from the obvious pun but still fit the naming convention.

    I think it's possible there'll be lore behind this figure. Like that base mode is "him" but then the turtles can switch off piloting him to convey their fighting skills.

    I just want a "The Last Ronin" version with all the vehicle parts molded in Black with a painted Black Mask attachment for bot mode head.

    Honestly wouldve been cooler to have all four together and form one alt mode. Instead of buying the same thing 4 times

    Yeah I'm not jazzed about having to buy the same thing four times just to have a complete team. Especially when (do we have a price?) we're probably looking at Voyager or Leader costs here.
    Almost tempted to JUST use the Donatello head and call it Metalhead (a yellow mask and a "T" buckle would've been ideal!)

    Yeah, that's a fail. Unless they plan to re-use the molds down the line.

    I was wondering what the alt mode was going to be. The fact that it has the weaponry, belt buckles and masks that allow you to choose which turtle it transforms into is pretty cool. It screams for army building, but I’ll probably just get one and keep it as my favorite turtle, Donatello.

    I don’t know if I need this, but the execution is great. Making it so that it can be your favorite turtle or incentivizing you to buy four to have the whole set was really clever.

    I might actually buy four Party Wallops if the head is really like that. I am not a fan of how Hasbro did with that mouth.

    If I am ever going to get one. He is going to use Donatello’s bandana, because the figure reminds me a bit of live action version of Donatello.
