Big one today! Running some catch up on the NECA Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Cartoon line. Normally this is in Joe Moore’s stable of shoots, but he tagged me in and I’ve run a whole chunk of recent releases for the line. I am one of the folks who never found Bebop and Rocksteady in person, even with trying, so after the first wave I kinda timed out. I was able to grab a set online when NECA put them up recently so I’ll be jumping back in down the road. These here today were Joe Moore’s, courtesy of NECA, so I kinda got to experience everything since wave 1 all at once.
I won’t go super hard into reviews as many of these have been out for a while. Overall though, I dig the toon based line NECA has been doing. I don’t need every one that drops personally, as TMNT was always farther down the line for me than Transformers or GI Joe. But I can appreciate what’s going on and glad that long time TMNT fans are getting deeper roster characters.
Read on to check some additional thoughts, and over 170 HD images for Bebop and Rocksteady, April O’Neil and Foot Soldier, Casey Jones and Foot Soldier, Slash and Leatherhead, Traag and Granitor, and Metalhead. I’ve also included some quick shots of Wave 1 earlier figures that I did back in 2019.
