Overview of the Re-Issued TMNT Giant Figures
Introduction to the Review by Pixel Dan
Welcome to this comprehensive review of the re-issued Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (TMNT) Giant Figures. In this article, we will be discussing various aspects of these figures, including their packaging, sculpt, articulation, paint, deco, accessories, size, and overall assessment. This review is based on insights provided by toy reviewer Pixel Dan, who unboxes and examines these figures individually, comparing them to their vintage counterparts.
Discussion of the Packaging and Theme
The packaging of the re-issued TMNT Giant Figures is unique and eye-catching. Unlike the vintage figures, which came in large window boxes, the re-issued figures come in open-air boxes, allowing you to touch and feel the figure. The packaging is also themed like the vintage card backs, featuring a brick motif and artwork that pays homage to the original artwork. The back of the packaging includes a little story about the origin of the turtles, as well as a cross cell showing all four turtles in this giant lineup.
Comparison to Vintage Figures
When comparing the re-issued TMNT Giant Figures to their vintage counterparts, there are noticeable differences in colors and paint. The re-issued figures have unique color tones, such as Raphael’s green skin having a distinct “P” color green, and Donatello’s dark brown skin, which is significantly darker than the original version. Additionally, the paint application on the new figures differs slightly, with the tops of their bandanas left unpainted, giving them a slightly unusual appearance when viewed from the top.
In terms of sculpt and head sculpts, the re-issued figures closely resemble the vintage ones. The sculpt quality is excellent, with intricate details capturing the essence of each turtle. However, there are some slight differences in weapons and belts between the new and vintage figures. For example, Leonardo’s Katana has a longer handle and a thinner blade compared to the vintage version. The belts on the re-issued figures are made of plastic, whereas the vintage ones featured soft goods material.
Examination of the Sculpt and Articulation
The sculpting on the re-issued TMNT Giant Figures is of top-notch quality. Each turtle is sculpted with great attention to detail, capturing their unique characteristics and personalities. The figures are solidly built and feel sturdy, just like their vintage counterparts. The articulation on these figures is impressive, allowing for a wide range of posing options. The heads can be turned left and right, the arms can move up and down at the shoulders, and the wrists can be rotated. There are also articulation points at the legs, allowing for swiveling movement at the knees.
Analysis of the Paint and Deco
The paint and deco on the re-issued figures are well done. Attention has been given to small details like the eyes and belt buckles, which adds to the overall quality of the figures. While there are minor differences in the paint application compared to the vintage figures, the overall quality and durability of the paint are excellent. However, one notable difference in the paint job is that the top of the bandanas on the re-issued figures are left unpainted, which may be a departure from the vintage look.
Evaluation of the Accessories Included
The re-issued TMNT Giant Figures come with a variety of accessories that are true to the characters. Each turtle is packaged with their signature weapon: Leonardo with his Katana, Michelangelo with his nunchucks, Donatello with his bo staff, and Raphael with his two sais. The quality and compatibility of the accessories are excellent, and while there were some complaints about Leonardo only being packaged with one Katana, it is worth noting that this is consistent with the vintage version. The weapons provided with the new figures are different from the vintage ones, which helps differentiate them and eliminate confusion with any vintage figures missing their weapons.
Comparison of Size with Original Counterparts
The re-issued TMNT Giant Figures are larger than their original counterparts, such as Giant Slam Dunk Don, Giant Bebop, and Giant Rocksteady. While they do not measure up exactly to the vintage figures, the size difference is not significant. The new figures still maintain their “giant” status and display nicely alongside the vintage ones.
Overall Assessment of the Re-Issued Figures
Overall, Pixel Dan finds the re-issued TMNT Giant Figures to be well-made and reasonably priced. The figures have a solid build, good articulation, and attention to detail in the sculpt and paint. While there are some differences between the re-issued and vintage figures, the new versions capture the spirit of the originals and provide a nostalgic feel. The availability and popularity of these figures make them a great addition to any TMNT collection.
