    Default TMNT 25th Anniversary

    At Toy Kingdom yesterday I found the 25th Anniversary TMNT toys for $18 each

    These toys are rereleases of the original Playmate TMNT toys from around 1990. They only had the four Turtles but the back of the box showed all the original wave toys as well (Splinter, April, Shredder, Bebop, Rocksteady, Foot Solider, with Casey Jones and Slash from the later waves included as well).

    The packaging is pretty much the same as the originals, so seeing them on the shelves was nostalgic for me as I was a TMNT nut back in 1990 (which 11 year old boy wasn't?) but I have all these toys (except Slash) so won't be buying them.

    It does make me wish though that now that TMNT and GIJoe have anniversary toys in their classic packaging that Transformers could have done this as well. Encore comes close but you can't go into a local toy shop and see a bunch of them on the shelf.

    Im hoping they sell the mutant ooze separate with no Figures along. I think they did back then, sorta like a refill tub these classic figures litter Parramatta Fair Paulbot. Did you happen to see some when you attended last time? There was heaps in the last one and luckily I browsed thru em, found me a shoulder pad and weapon for Bomb burst hidden within the piles of loose TMNT weapons

    I know what you mean about TF encores not littering shelves like a common toy. Sigh, Hasbro has control of Aus market TF wise. Unlike say, Singapore - TF heaven. Its almost the same in Philippines as there is a whole floor of hobby shops in one Old major shopping center, kinda like China square central where the sellers are hobbyists themselves so its littered with all manner of vintage and new items TFs and other toys as well.

    The pics from the Singapore stores of TF stocks are great, and while I know Encores won't come out here, it would have been nice that if Hasbro were going to release classic toys (like they did with G1 Prime) the packaging could match.

    I didn't really notice TMNT toys at any of the fairs, my interest in those toys wasn't sustained, but it was good to see them on the shelves again as it brought back a lot of memories.

    Cool! I didn't realise they were re-issuing these! I've already got them all in perfect condition, but it's great news for others though!

    Actually, rather coincidentally, I just picked up the new NECA Michelangelo figure yesterday, and it's freaking awesome like the other 3!

    Very cool that this stuff is getting rereleased, hopefully now I can get some other sealed figs to go with my lonely Krang.

    Is Toy Kingdom the only place in Oz these have been spotted ?

    I wish Ghostbusters Toys were reissued as well. I so want those slime user ghosts!
