It's Wednesday, and you know what that means... ToyFarce reviews!
This week, we're having a look at the 4 main turtles from the Super7 Ultimates! Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles line. When the first few waves were announced, I skipped on them since there was only one turtle per wave, and wanted to wait to see how they were in-hand. After a few waves were announced, they started to come out and then, the secondary market prices started to creep up, and I just made my peace with the fact that I missed out on those. I thought I can't really get into a line if I don't have the main characters, right? Thankfully, last summer, Super7 announced that they would sell all 4 turtles as a bundle, with a re-issue of the first one that came out (Raphael). So... I got them!

First things first, the packaging. Super7 always does an excellent job with the packaging and the unboxing experience. Each comes with its own shipper boxes, and a nice sleeve for that 'deluxe' effect. The boxes have an amazing design, where you can see the figure with all its accessories through a window (remember those?).

Raphael, who used to be my favorite growing up (I lost mine in a river as a kid, so there's some trauma involved). That figure comes packed with accessories: a new and improved head, 8 extra hands, extra sais (the figure already had some on his belt, but there were additional ones), communicators (open and closed), a slice of pizza and the same 'weapon rack' that the original figures from 1988 came out with (along with those same weapons "painted and ready to use!"). Great nostalgia trick!

(Can you imagine if today's collector reviewed the original figures? "What? No thigh swivel? No biceps swivel? Complete absence of ab-crunch! The head is soft, this is BS!" Thank god those came out when we were children...).

Leonardo was in the second wave of figures, and comes with the same amount of accessories, except that he has katanas instead of sais (duh!), and has one less pair of hands. The articulation on those figures is pretty great, and they really are a love letter to the old ones, all while being a huge improvement/modern version at the same time.

Michaelangelo, from wave 3, comes with similar accessories as the other ones, except he has a whole pizza box instead of just one slice, and a grappling hook instead of communicators. He also comes with 2 version of his nunchukus: either all plastic and straight, or with actual chains.

Last but not least, the best turtle, Donatello, from wave 4. Donnie comes with the same plethora of accessories, with 2 bo staffs (in case he loses one?). And that finally completes the set of our 4 favorite turtles.

Super7 did a great job at making at making those figures look just like the old ones, while being up to modern standards. The old head sculpts are spot on, and the newer versions are definitely nice to look at (Raphael being the best one of the 4, with a bit more details). $45 per figure is definitely not great, but the argument of Super7 being a smaller company and needing to have slightly higher prices also makes sense (plus, it beats paying triple on ebay). Still, I'm happy with them. I don't think I will go all-in on the line, but I do think i might have to go back and look for a couple of them... I hear Bebop and Rocksteady are awesome figures.

What did you think of the Super7 Ultimates! TMNT line? Which one is your favorite? Let us know in the comments!
