When the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles film was released in 1990, kids were introduced to a serious and intimidating version of The Shredder. Gone were the zany antics of the cartoon version. Oroku Saki was given just enough back story, and just enough screen time, to establish himself as a formidable foe to the Turtles. The costume design paid respect to the original comic version of shredder, with large blades, and more traditional Clothing. To this day, the original live action Shredder remains the best movie version of the character. Fans have been hoping for a collector oriented action figure for years, and those requests have finally been fulfilled.
Courtesy of NECA, The Shredder joins their excellent line up of 1/4 scale figures based on the TMNT 1990 film. Standing 18″ tall, Shredder includes interchangeable hands, a staff, a removable face mask, a knife, and a cape. We picked the figure up from sponsor Entertainment Earth. Check out my photos and thoughts on the figure after the jump.
