Toy Porn: TMNT Metalhead

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles hold a special place in the hearts of most men-children that grew up in the 80s. The cartoon was ridiculously cheesy, the premise ridiculous, and the toys plentiful. Seriously, there were at least 5 kajillion variations of the titular team. They lasted far longer than they should have and were revived, zombie-like (though not as actual zombies, which would’ve made a killing – HA), several times. Then after the latest iteration kicked off to the dark places in the sewers, Nickelodeon brought them back YET AGAIN. But this time they got it right. Taking cues from the (surprisingly violent) original comic, the designs were much more detailed and had actual personality. The toys followed suit. I haven’t purchased a TMNT toy since I was 13 (I’ve got to draw the line somewhere); but even I was impressed with sculpts on these latest figures. But still – not enough of a TMNT fan to justify dropping cash on them.

Then I saw this beauty over on The Daytime Ninja:

A robot ninja turtle? I’d forgotten that Metalhead even existed in the TMNT canon; but damn if that isn’t one awesome mashup of a toy. If get wind of one of the anthropomorphic Triceratops being made into a toy, I may have to break my long-standing “No Turtles” policy.
