We Have to Stop Talking About TMNT, says Nick

Post by Grand Moff Larkin »

I did not have Rappin' Mike

HOWEVER

1. I'm glad there wasn't a typo on the package
2. I immediately heard "I'm Rappin' Mike, I stop 'em cold / Part of the defense, big and bold"

From the same subline, it's weird that Don was the punk (clearly it's Raph)

Image

I don't know why he has a keytar.

More on-brand for Donatello would've been Prog Don or Steely Don, I'm not sure what accessories he'd have but he'd definitely have horrible fashion sense and a ponytail. Probably not the biggest seller.

There are so many weird figures (here's the list: https://turtlepedia.fandom.com/wiki/Lis ... on_figures) but Michelangelo with Storage Shell is the one that made me go "Oooh I loved that one."

It reminds me of how much I love any story in which a kid has a tiny secret room (AKA, large closet) off of their room. Neu! 15 basically has this now, but there was a plumbing leak into it and we need to get the ceiling redone.

I've realized that most of my figures were from 89-90, had a couple from 91 but I was tailing off by then.

Loved this one

In the greater portfolio (see above) of Don being a Sexual Pervert, here's Trenchcoat Flasher Don

I had the best homemade Raphael costume as a kid because my Beavers troop had a TMNT night. Maybe I'll dig out the ol' photo album later.

I'm pretty sure that I had all of those with the exception of Devotello.

I didn't have VHS tapes of the show, only the first live-action movie.

Also I don't remember having many or possibly any of the bases or vehicles. I think I had one but I'll have to look around.

A couple of years ago I tried watching the Michael Bay TMNT movie (with Megan Fox) and tapped out after like eight minutes.

Always fun to see a young Sam Rockwell in the first movie.

The warehouse of street children that served as Shredder's lair was wild. So many kids gambling and smoking cigarettes.

How many copies of the TMNT movie on VHS do you think sold in the US? A billion?

I never saw TMNT 3 and have the vaguest memory of seeing D3: The Mighty Ducks at some point. The timetable for entirely aging out of that bracket and into Clerks / Mallrats was pretty short.
