Check out my review for a cool piece of Turtle history & keep an eye on DTN this week!

TMNT/Trek Donatello Retro Review

  1. I never had these so I just noticed the shells tucked under their shirts. LOL! Great review, Noisy. The Turtles have always been a fun line from day one.

  2. I kind of loathed the endless variants like these back in the day whenever all I wanted were “normal” versions of my favorite characters, but now that I own pretty much all the TMNT figures I’ve ever wanted, I can look at these differently and appreciate the cleverness at work.

    1. Agreed — I never had a TON of the variants, I think the most I had were the storage Shell and the Turtles in Disguise (the Samurai Leo, Undercover Don, Astronaut Raph, and Surfin’ Mike) — the rest were all a bit much — You really can appreciate them now, like the Trek ones, and I belive there are Western ones too, right?

      1. I don’t think I had any Turtles variants back in the day, but my thoughts on this extended to pretty much any line. I wanted the Kenner Keaton Bats in the regular black outfit, not like a gold one. Real Ghostbusters the same idea.

        I think my one exception was GI Joe, since I really dug the Tiger Force figures and such.

        1. Oh, man. I loved the stuff like that. I loved the various Joe Squads and I’d love to just have an “Arctic Batman” collection. That white Keaton one was one of my favorite figures.

          I do agree on the RGB though. I never really did care about the variants of those for whatever reasos…
