July is almost here and that means a new wave of Nickelodeon’s TMNT figures will be hitting the stores soon. So the folks over at Playmates sent along their promotional pics and bios of the upcoming Rat King, and Cockroach Terminator figures.
Along with the new figure pics, we also received a pretty cool promotional video that features the Turtles vs. Shredder in stop motion animation with the action figures.
The figures in this set look pretty good. All four Turtles are pretty fun with their SWAT-like gear, and Cockroach Terminator is another great mutant villain to pad out the roster. What really intrigues me is the new Rat King. With his necrotic and bandaged skin, and the creepy old timey preacher’s clothes, the new Rat King has got to be near the top of the list of most disturbing TMNT figures. But that doesn’t mean I don’t love it! A zealous cult leader that indoctrinates rats is a much more intimidating foe than the 90’s crazy man I grew up with.
