Half Shell Heroes. Leo with T-Rex!

HsH_PackagingFrontArrived at our UK office this week! The long-awaited larger Leonardo with dinosaur set from the ‘Blast to the Past’ Half Shell Heroes toyline.

Leonardo’s dinosaur pal is looking a little less Triceratops-like… In fact, he isn’t paired up with a large Triceratops at all. Playmates have gone for a repaint of Donatello’s T-Rex companion in a similar color scheme.

This T-Rex is very cool blue all over. Even the inside of his mouth is blue! Or could that be Playmates cutting corners on paint apps again? Oh, Playmates!

Another thing to note is the Leonardo rider figure still has a weapon in hand unlike the other rider Dino-Turtle variants. Having a sword still in hand works well for that “charge into battle” posture.
Apologies for not having a Donatello T-Rex to compare with. Some of us (unlike the sidekick of a certain Intergalactic Wrestling Promoter) are just not made of money. Of course, we’re more than happy for Playmates to send the odd parcel our way *hint*. The best was done with what little there was available. Big thanks to our source btw. You know who you are! 😉

Seeing the past few week’s comic incidents have lead Donatello to a whole new level of interest and “Saintly-hood” now that he’s dead AGAIN. A Satanic little Tokka-snake is keepin’ an eye on things just to keep things real and perhaps make this post somewhat ironically appropriate this fine Easter day.
