Review: Nickelodeon TMNT Blimp


One of the toys that came out in the early 1990’s that was a fan favorite is the Turtle Blimp.  The Nickelodeon Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series has picked up on this beloved part of the original TMNT series and has brought it back for new generations to adore.  It was released as a toy before we saw it in the new show, as Donatello introduced it in Season 3.  Here is my review of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Turtle Blimp!

I filmed this review before seeing the episode where the blimp was introduced on the show.  I love the introduction of the blimp, as it is one of the old toys that I really enjoyed having around.  I got both versions the dark green one and the light green with yellow.  The new one reminds me a lot of it, with the glider and the big blimp.  If I have to compare, I do like the original blimp’s glider a bit more, as I love the feature of dropping the bombs.  My problem with the new feature is those strings that the Turtles can hang on, keep coming undone, even when you don’t want them too.

I’m not sure about the blimp looking like a giant Turtle.  This reminds me of something the old series would do.  How are they being ninja like, if they’re showing the world that they’re “Turtles”?   Just a thought.  I am curious when Donatello would have the time to build it, without his brothers having any clue that he was gone that long.  As the blimp is large! 

This is a great piece for any Ninja Turtles Collection.  It can be hung with toys upon it, in the hands of kids having great adventures or sitting on a shelf surrounded by an epic battle of the Turtles vs. the Foot.  Anywhere the fan’s imagination can take it, this toy has the ability to be part of that dream.

These are from Playmates Toys.  The company that has stayed with the TMNT for the longest time, and helped make the Turtles to be what they are today.  Please do take the time to check their websites:
