Super7 Wave 3 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Ultimates April O'Neil Review


Recommended Posts

Okay, so two important points I want to note with this figure, one positive and one negative:
1) Positive: This April is PRECISELY the right scale for the NECA TMNT figures (you know, unlike the actual NECA April figure).  I'm certain that some creative customizers would be able to make a GREAT cartoon April by kit-bashing these two toys together.
2) Negative: Okay, so Bebop and Rocksteady (and the Turtles themselves, and most other figures, but ESPECIALLY noticeable with those two) got SO MUCH extra sculpt detailing all over their bodies with their Super7 figures.  Sssooo . . . why does April look like she was tooled in 1987?  I get mimicking the general aesthetic, but . . . no seams, no folds, no wrinkles, no "realistic" texture to ANYTHING below the neck?  I mean, the arms are okay-ish I GUESS, but the thighs and especially the lower torso?  They're so . . . just FLAT.  And her upper torso isn't much better, in terms of detailing (no, I'm not making a "flat" joke, I actually prefer that figures aren't so hyper-over-sexualized).
My point is, they didn't put NEARLY the effort into this figure that they did to others in the line, and it's OBVIOUS.  She looks like a low-end TV-quality CGI model and not an actual real toy.  She looks like a dollar-store figure, not a $45 collectors' piece.
. . . Still a better figure than Playmates' Classic Collection Shredder. *LMAO*  And DEFINITELY a viable base to make a kick-@$$ cartoon accurate April IN SCALE with the NECA figures. :)
