Playmates Toys 6" Leonardo vs Rocksteady and Michelangelo vs Bebop 2-Pack Images

Wait.
<P>
Wait a minute.
<P>
WAIT A @#$%ING MINUTE.
<P>
THAT.  IS.  NOT.  THE. TURTLE BLIMP!!
<P>
Or rather, that is not the GLIDER from the original Turtle Blimp.  THAT is the glider from TB toy released for the 2012 CGI cartoon!
<P>
As seen in the image below, the classic glider had upper wings that clipped to the balloon, and lower wings with engines on the side beneath the pilot seat.  It looked . . . well, a LOT like the blimp from the original cartoon.
<P>
THIS ISN'T A TRUE RERELEASE!!  The only rerelease of the original toy is the balloon.  The glider?  That's just a crappy reissue from less than a decade ago.
<P>
What kind of lazy, half-@$$, cobbled together bull$#!+ is THIS?!?  Constant reissues and lazy reuse are one thing, but HALF a reissue?  That's an ENTIRELY new low, Playmates!! WTELF!! 😡🤬😤🖕

Seriously, I mean it, HOLY $#!+ is this a scam!!
<P>
Taking out the bombs, I can . . . ALMOST get. "No bomb toys for kids" is moronic, overprotective, nanny-state, "THINK OF DA CHILDWEN!!1!" BS (not like there aren't PLENTY of toys with bombs and missiles and military weapons), and it's ESPECIALLY stupid when this is a line SPECIFICALLY targeting the nostalgia market, aimed at older people who grew up with the original toys and maybe want to replace damaged or lost pieces, or want to share that classic experience with their kids, BUT . . . I at least get it.  Fine, no bombs.
<P>
And no bombs means you gotta change the box art, move some stuff around so they aren't throwing bombs, cool, makes sense.  "Get 'em!" is a uncreative, slack-@$$ writing as a line replacement, but whatever.
<P>
But to completely redraw the original box art to replace the old glider with the new one?  To deliberately attempt to erase the memory of the old toy by implicitly saying "no no, it's the same thing, look, just like you remember, original art and everything!" like they didn't just toss you a phony imitation of the classic piece?  And then to officially call it a "retro reissue" like it's the same toy you remember from the 1980s, and not a developed-30-some-years-later, lower quality copycat from a different series?  Essentially a KNOCKOFF of the classic toy you ACTUALLY wanted?
<P>
That's not just lazy and cheap, and it's not just insulting to the retro collectors' intelligence, IT'S @#$%ING BAIT AND SWITCH.

Earlier this month we showed you the official images for the first two 6" TMNT Vs Cobra Kai 2-Packs from Playmates Toys which included Michelangelo vs Danny Larusso and Donatello vs Johnny Lawrence.

Well now we have the official images for the two remaining sets being released which includes Leonardo vs Miguel and Raphael vs John Kreese. Look for these two sets to hit Target stores soon.

I certainly like the figures of Karate Kid because they look WAY better from the 80s figures...✌️😃
