TMNT (2012) Wave 2 toys at Walmart


tmnt(2012)wave2

For some reason, I thought I was going to have to wait til Spring 2013 for new TMNT figures. As such, I was quite pleasantly surprised to find the 3-figure second wave of TMNT toys at a local Walmart.

Of this wave, Metalhead’s the only familiar character for me. I had the Metalhead figure from the original 1980s line, though I’m not particularly familiar as yet with the comics version of the character. I don’t know if I lucked across this wave just a couple days after it came out or not–but the Metalhead episode of the cartoon just aired 3 days ago.

Dogpound is a new character to me; though I recognize the character of Bradford from the episode where Mikey “friended” him on a social network, somehow I don’t remember him being mutated yet–may just not have stood out to me at all. This is probably the largest–and heaviest–of all the standard TMNT figures so far…which makes up a bit for the toys’ pricing.

Fishface I only recognize from some photo I saw online awhile back of a prototype or from Toyfair or some such. This is probably my least-favorite of the entire line so far–I should have left this guy on the peg, but figured my OCD would torture me til I wasted time and money on gas hunting the figure down later, so went ahead and just bought it now while all 3 figures were in front of me.

And here are the profiles from the back of the figures’ cards:

Finally, here’s the modified roster for this wave, showing all 12 figures to date for this line. I really dig this format–for years I’ve hated the lines that show maybe 2-3 other figures…you never know what other figures are actually OUT, from any given single figure, that way! Here, you get to see the ENTIRE LINE–first AND second waves–so you know what figures EXIST…and thus, what to even look for. I see 12 unique figures, I have 12 (plus the extra Foot Soldiers and Kraang), so I’m good (until the next wave hits–whenever that is).
