–>> Tokka here. Haven’t done one of these pseudo-review things in a billion years. But since this is my first ON-SITE post ( social media not included – pretty active there ) in over a year – i may be a little rusty. But let’s dive right into the fryer with “MEATSWEATS” – RISE OF THE TMNT’S breakout villain voiced by none other than the incredible John Lydon aka “JOHNNY ROTTEN” of the legendarily infamous Sex Pistols !! !!

Nickelodeon  RISE of The TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES :: MEAT SWEATS iii (( 2018 )) [[ Standard U.S. release ]]
Meat Sweats with “Mutated Hand” variant ..

During this massive hiatus, RISE of the TMNT has taken Nick’s kid’s television, streaming and online blocks by storm. A little divisive, hilarious and sometimes older fans get a chance to warm up to a whole new universe of insane, magical Turtle Teen adventures with a whole new generation of villains with a touch classic 1990s TMNT flavour !!

☠ 🐷 ☠

Meat Sweats is a one-PIG Foodie “POUND PATROL” For Baron Draxum and a premier Mutant for the new Rise of the TMNT toy line !!

RISE-MEATSWEATS_3+4

On the show, Johnny Rotten voices a real Power House of a villain, done in the spirit of the classic “TMNT 80s Toy Line Wackiness” – has quickly become a fan favourite !! It’s also noted that the Veteran TMNT design team at Varner Studios took an instant liking to the Big Guy’s pudgy-power look as well !!

RISE-MEATSWEATS_5
.. Meatsweats turns

RISE-MEATSWEATS_TURN test .. imperfect, but here is Tokka’s first toy – video turn around of this big ham .

In autumn and winter of 2018; two versions of the Meat Sweats split between the U.S. and Canada /Euro ‘Spin Masters’ releases of the toy included either a “Mutated Hand” or “Tentacle” accessory to interchange with his right Metal fist bracer !!

RISE-MEATSWEATS_6
..Meatsweats absorbs his enemies’ powers with his awful hands. When he removes his protective bracers, the danger he poses is amplified to 2000 !!

He also includes his frightening “Tenderizer” weapon and signature apron.

A small custom “bloody” paint job was done by me as well as on his tow nails & weapon handle. These usually come unpainted.

Variations on his “pants” also exist with portions under the apron coming painted or umm .. “au natural”. >XP

You can twist him around. He’s spry with 8 articulation points at the : neck, hinge joints at the shoulders, elbows, hip and thigh, waist. And of coarse his powerful bracer gloves and removable tentacle/ hand move 360 at the wrist.

RISE-MEATSWEATS_7
RISE-MEATSWEATS_tentacle-card1
Currently, both HAND and Tentacle versions of our Piggy pal are showing up stateside. I am unsure of the boxed quantities in any given shipment nationally or internationally. Although, recently on a Target store visit, i saw one of each variant on the pegs. So i am gonna it is two variants per case.

Some people i’ve discussed the current retail TMNT toy line with are not fans of the show, BUT love the new toy line. Meaty here is often listed amoungst their absolute favourites.

Tales-Samurai-UsagiYojimbo,basic-2017-card1
In preparation for my return to GGM and feature posts, i have been scanning both new and older TMNT product, toy packaging and adding older and new photos from my backlog on my old hard drive. There is about close to 6 years of backlogged images intended for potential posts on GGM or at least just for archiving and sharing with fellow TMNT fans.
The t2z- Flickr account has been a great success for millions to access my archives. Unfortunately the rampant abuse and stealing of my images got WAYYYY out of control years ago and backfired me. I have a little bit better grip on watermarks and Creative Commons rights sharing anymore so i have a bit more confidence with scanning and sharing again. Not much is organized or tagged yet, but will take care of it when i can make the time. But if ya don’t believe me that i have been adding to that archive again – TAKE A LOOK !! **

MUCKMAN NOT CANCELLED !! MUCKMAN-toyUPDATEFollowing up on ** Nacho’s TMNT Latin America report on MUCKMAN  being an AMAZON EXCLUSIVE, i was able to reach out to Aubrie at **Playmates finally and get the REAL info on what the heck is going on with releases like Muckman and all the other confusing supposed “cancellations” some fans seem to fly off the handle with and upset everyone about..

TOY FAIR '13 PEEK

–     [ in regards to Mix and Match Leatherhead, ect. ]     Our Mix N Match figures are currently on HOLD so that we can push new TV characters from the show on Nickelodeon, which is in Season 4.    –  MEANING THE LINE AND LEATHERHEAD ARE NOT CANCELLED, just on hiatus..~ t

–      [ in regards to Half Shell Heroes Rahzar & Roach, and possible Kriby, Mutagen Man, and hopefully Karai ]     The HSH Rahzar and Cockroach is shipping and should be hitting shelves at major retailers mid-February.

–       [ in regards to the Basic Triceraton, looks like we may ONLY be getting Mozar — maybe this wiull change but for now  ]   The “Basic Triceraton” is Mozar.  He was an Exclusive to Walmart in the month of December, stopped shipping for January and will be hitting shelves in all major retailers now.

Atilla and friends
Muckman and friends

–       [ Dream Beaver DIRE ]    Dire Beaver and Dark Beaver should be hitting shelves in June at all major retailers.

3pk_2

–         [ TMNT sidekick 3-pack – perhaps a restructuring of distribution is in order for this one..  ] The Icecream Kitty, Cluckingsworth and Spike Turtle 3 pack was removed from Target’s website and we are no longer moving forward with it. 

–      [ MUCKMAN ]    Muckman is set to be released in 2017.

–        [ KRAANG PRIME, this was never promised for release – only his prototype was released ]  We are no longer moving forward with the KRAANG PRIME.

 

KRAANG PRIME PROTO

..keep in mind things ALWAYS change in this business, and Nickelodeon & Playmates are constantly in a state of flux with these decisions. Fan input is important, and speculation run amok isn’t going to help anyone. If you are really concerned about your favourite release being cancelled – – it’s best to be calm, polite, respectful, patient and direct with your concerns and go straight to the horse’s mouth to get the answers you need. I’ll keep you posted as i learn more.
