Playmates "touching-up" previous waves..

  • Got this in from a friend back East; i believe located in Georgia at a TARGET store, thanks Dakota ::   Reissues of figures from prior TMNT waves such as Cockroach Terminator ( shown in the screencap from the friend on Instagram above), Dogpound, Leatherhead, and Snakeweed and maybe others – – have been reported to have newer paint applications and deco that looks much more improved and somewhat similar to their prototype predecessors. Playmates’s scale with the Turtles line has been an ever present issue – – but these newer paint decos on the older releases may make up for the line’s short comings. So again, keep an eye out.

Previews are out, books are on the shelves and reviews are popping up so I feel there’s no need to hold this back.
Metalhead’s redesign for IDW’s TMNT! Had fun with this one! As you may see on his debut book (TMNT#34) the speeder/car mode was something that I suggested and writer Tom Waltz and editor Bobby Curnow embraced.

My goal here was to not only give this version of the character a voice and look of its own, but also to pay a homage to the original design. Mission accomplished I believe.

Hope you all enjoy it.

–>> **Delays of the new Turtles film aren’t true, ***despite Arnett’s & ****Fox’s post baby reshoot of a third of it earlier in the week. Liebesman & Bay’s production also had more surprises today with **JACK ASS star Johnny Knoxville cast to voice Leo and MONK’s Tony Shalhoub cast to voice Splinter. ***Who knows what further surprises are in store, only the NOSE knows.

Tokka’s current obsession, however is the role of Fichtner’s SHREDDER. If you AREN’T or haven’t been following any of the production news and are trying to avoid spoilers for the new TMNT film, i can respect that and invite you to stop reading this posting now. There might be some minor / major spoilers ahead depending on how much you know about the movie beyond the trailer or want to know.

For fun , i broke down the costume design just a bit and highlighted some of the features of your freakishly favourite fave main-villain **while trying to mentally process potentially other massive spoilers from a very unreliable source ( i wouldn’t check this link unless you REALLY want to cringe ).

2K3 Shredder // Oroku Saki  [[ Courtesy 4kids TMNT Blog ]]

“The Shredder in this film is based on his Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (2003) incarnation, where he is an alien being inside a human android suit. His spiked armour and his helmet (with a alien face painted on it) point to his alien heritage.” — ** IMDB

Mortu { "Secret Origins" Part 1  } [[ Courtesy 4kids TMNT Blog ]]It’s interesting as the mostly peaceful and semi-pacifict Utroms of ol’ TMNT canon in more recent media have become overall a violent species and in some cases outright evil for example as the warring Utroms and Krang of the current IDW comic books.

If you followed 4kids’s spectacular version of TURTLES cartoon show – – the twists and turns in the first couple of seasons had fans on the edge of their seats. About 10 years ago now ( YOWZA !! ) – the concept, as you may recall of Shredder himself being of alien; i.e. of UTROM origin and tying Saki’s history to his bitter enemies the Utroms was a brand new concept at the time. Viewers and fans of the comics were trying to wrap their heads around it all.

Weeks back when the leaked Paramount TMNT production images of the Turtles mock-up designs and these photographs of an actor in Shredder’s suit spread thru’ the interwebs like a nasty virus, — the main focus has been on Teens’ designs.. but the some of the most striking designs arguably may be on Shredder’s suit design itself ( i’m presuming post the release of the first trailer it’s “OK” to post these without retribution of any kind from Paramount,hopefully ).

Aside from speculation early on – indications of another UTROM/Alien version of Shredder ( an alien in an android Battle Exo-suit ) are somewhat clearly made on the Shredder costume’s abdomen.

Hmm.. recalling personally those early 2k3 TMNT season 2 revelation and the heated discussions of fans of the show – – 4kids kept eluding to and building up to the big reveal of the TRUTH of Oroku Saki and the Shredder during Season 1. Some applauded the move, some were stunned & shocked. Some hated it passionately and still do.

So yes, with Fichtner’s version of the iconic character; we’re getting a live-action version of some sort or another of this.

Ch’rell, the UTROM Shredder, proved to be one of the most cut-throat and vicious villains in all of TMNT-lore.

Ch'rell in prisoner helmet { "Secret Origins" Part 1  } [[ Courtesy 4kids TMNT Blog ]]The 2003 show did so much to connect the Utroms to Shredder’s history, some even stated the obvious connotation :: “It’s as if they combined Shredder and Krang from the original series into one character.”


Shredder DAMAGED - Ch'rell, Utrom Shredder revealed :: Season 2  { "Secret Origins" Part 2  } [[ Courtesy 4kids TMNT Blog ]]Ch’rell had a downright nasty sovereign-complex, forever plotting, egotistical and megalomaniacle to the very end. Definitely one of the most memorable incarnations of the Shredder ever. Also one of my personal favorites.

TURTLES FOREVER  {TMNT 25 Movie }    ::  Krang in Bio Suit ( Android Body ) [[ Courtesy 4kids B T T S Blog ]]

IDW’s popular revision of the famous KRANG from the original show echo certain elements of Ch’rell in many regards. The current darker Utrom version of Krang in the comics is very much the definition of a conqueror than ever before. A far cry from the more humorous, whiny, bossy and bubbling Krang so many loved from the classic Turtle show.

Some are stating that this movie’s Shredder isn’t Ch’rell but KRANG himself as the REAL Utrom BIG BAD. This also reflects leaked and supposed dreaded and controversial first drafts of the film plopped online more than a year ago.

The IMDB does seem a little mixed as stating that Krang was the Utrom-Shredder in the 2003 show which he wasn’t. So take all of with a little grain of salt.

What we may be getting in another alien version of Shredder might not only be startling, but it will the very first time we’ve ever seen the Utroms represented in film officially.

Shredder may not only be scary in this movie..

.. he may be downright HORRIFIC.

Scott's "ALIEN".

An illustrator for **Vincent Ferrante’s Witch Hunter comics, double-time work as storyboardist & VA on MTV’s Daria, a tiny bit more of VA highlights in Scott’s repertoire include MTV’s CELEBRITY DEATHMATCH, video games such as Pokémon, & of coarse the 4kids series TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES as the brilliant, grandiose, over-the-top creator of the Mouser Robots BAXTER STOCKMAN.


Professor Baxter Stockman ::Season 1 [[ Courtesy 4kids TMNT Blog ]]Scott provided the truest, most FREAKISH elements of Baxter from the original MIRAGE comics & ran with them. Not only proving just how horrible and insane Baxter really could be, but even giving Baxter a humorous backbone that often counter-balanced the darker tone of the whole series, even at times allowing BAXTER to steal the whole show !! No matter just how many times Shredder & the Turtles cut him down to size, LITERALLY .. Dr.Bax always came back more frightening and disturbing than ever before !! By far in Tokka’s top 3 incarnations of the character.

Is Baxter taking any Mouser requests ?? Well if you can stay on the GOOD side of his ego and the price is right – maybe. >;p

Available for a little over a year now at Dollar Tree stores, and apparently still available at some of them .. these big-eye, big-head..but-ugly buggers with the somewhat menacing looking blasters & unused battery compartments are only articulated at the neck and arms. But again for a buck ..these bugs are super affordable

Far as i can tell, only 2 variants of the same mold exist; green and tan. However, in similar packaging & slimmer scale are two-packs of “Ninja Aliens” using similar generic male body molds for Dollar Tree’s Power Ranger & Wrestling toy knock-offs but with Spider-man like heads.


If ya got a penchant like Tokka does for all things weird & bootleg-like these guts may be up you’re alley. Whadda ya got to loose for only a buck ??!
