Presenting – 80’s Leonardo, the toy as branded by the Wanted: Bebop & Rocksteady subline. As of this writing we are not sure where the trenchcoat theme fits in with the upcoming TV episode arc, but think its cool all the same there is a new detective Turtle on the toy shelves. This Leo figure comes equipped with a briefcase and his traditional pair of swords. The coat is not removable, unlike the hat! The hat also has an additional clip undeath that attaches to Leo’s bandana knot to keep it attached. The Alleyway at night is always a little sketchy after hours… Leo pictured with other detective Turtles. Movie Raph’s hat is held on with blu-tac (yes, really!) Hope you enjoyed this short toy gallery. The episode arc Wanted: Bebop & Rocksteady will be released stateside on DVD on September 12th. 80’s Leonardo, Bebop and Rocksteady are already out in stores. These three figures were obtained from Amazon UK. Background supplied by ToyHax
Welcome to the weekend, ‘Shellheads’! Be sure to catch the latest Tales of The TMNT episode “Lone Rat & Cubs” airing on Nickelodeon this Sunday.
Synopsis: “When Hamato Yoshi is mutated into a sewer rat, he must learn to survive the difficult life of a mutant on the run while also protecting four baby, mutant turtles from the Kraang” (wikipedia)
Things have been a bit slow through 2017 when it comes to TMNT figures released outside America. So, seeing the new Wanted: Bebop & Rocksteady toys (and Usagi!) suddenly appear at UK retail really is a real turn-up!
Bebop & Rocksteady are here paying tribute to thier 1980’s predecessors. These two heavys are still the new incarnations of the dopey duo, but given a throwback facelift. The upcoming 3-episode arc of Nick TMNT season 5 should give a full explaination of this theme.
Take some time to marvel at the gallery put together of these ‘Fall/Autumn 2017’ Playmates releases. There’s also some comparisons thrown in too.
