–>> 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.

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 !! **

Mike’s Kowabunga Surf Buggy

The Dune-drivin’, Sand-Surfin’ Beach Machine

Whoa, dude! Grab your board and slip into some skimpy shorts, cuz Mike’s takin’ his Kowabunga Surf Buggy to blue heaven, curl city, water wonderland – you know, the beach. Strap yourself in and take the most radical ride of your young life as Mike drives off dunes and skids in sand. But don’t worry, the sand skiddin’ traction tires never lose their grip. And with the reciprocatin’ surfboard bumper, bumps bite it before you ride it. While Raph fires on the Foot with the soakin’ soda can machine guns, you can chill it, and snag yourself a sand snack or some frozen fire power from the chillin’ ammo chest. What if the Foot don’t fall, you say? Well, keep it cool, cuz if Raph don’t fizz ’em, then you can slam and jam ’em with the detachable spiked beach ball bomb. And to end your bodacious day at the beach, you can watch Mike waste some waves on the Surf Buggy’s wave wackin’ super surfboard. Kowabunga, Dudes!

Let’s cut to the chase so i can get this out of the way, “RISE OF THE TMNT” is all the talk GOOD AND BAD of coarse on the interwebs. I’ll discuss this past week’s leak briefly i can and elaborate a bit of what i personally know.

  • The “Tumbling Turtle” Tumblr blog released this supposed licencing expo cell pic that kinda weren’t supposed to release. Tokka had seen this  a couple months back but remained quiet as i was still trying to process how i would phrase what i have learned about the Toonier Andy Suriano inspired designs of the new show. In the end i was specifically trying to time it out as long as possible as to not get in the way of the official NICKELODEON reveal and to not get anyone in trouble ( . and for respect of the Nickelodeon group whom i have to high regards for at this point, sorry). This person has been trying to pry as much info as they could out of me for a number of months now. Being the pussycat that i am, i was trying to be polite as i could without spilling everything i learned. The stress from the pressure from was barely averted – but here we are at the official reveal.

Follow the link above for the live feed of Eric Bauza’s hosted reveal on FB at 1 PM EST.

TOKKA DOES ADVISE YOU TO BE AS OPEN-MINDED as you can to the show’s new direction !! i know it’s not easy, but try !!

So ICYMI , here’s more on RISE –  ::

.Elaborating slightly on what i understand of the show.. ::

  • Sha-T'o, the FOOT Water MYSTIC :: Season 1 { " Return to New York parts 1 - 3 " } [[ Courtesy 4kids TMNT Blog ]]

Echoes of prior animated productions like Lloyd Goldfine’s 2003 4KIDS TMNT show take shape in Ant Ward’s newer 2D production, the Foot Clan may seem to emanate newer powers, “MIST – LIKE” powers not to dissimilar from the FOOT MYSTICS in the 2k3 toon. Be that in “magical powers” in general or in teleportation remains to be seen.

 


  • TMNT: Back to the Sewer :: Ancient One [[ Courtesy 4kids B T T S Blog ]]
    Sean Schemmel’s “THE ANCIENT ONE” from TMNT 2k3 , Splinter’s  super-elder sensei looks to be a slight influence on Rise’s Eric Bauza Splinter. Prolly will be a more serious character than the “eternally youthful” teacher. Then again, if you know Eric  – – Splinter may be even more fun & humorous than we think !! !!

  • Some of the new designs of the most iconic villains in the RISE – show remind me of classic, cartoon “EXECUTIONER” tropes.

  • An all new cybernetic, corpulent mutant villain of gargantuan proportions may come to play in this new series. Could this be one of Maurice LaMarche’s hillariously disturbing vocal roles  ( as part of one of the veteran TMNT VAs brought in by Rob Paulsen !! ) ?!

I’ll elaborate more when i feel comfortable to do so, when it is appropriate and won’t get in Nickelodeon’s way. We’ll see.
