Review: TMNT 2014 Splinter Action Figure

I have been able to get up all four of the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles action figures from Playmates toys, based on the new movie coming out.  Though the toy line does not end with just those four Turtles as we got more good and bad characters that have come out as action figures.  I am planning to try and review everyone of them that I can get my hands on before the film is out.  This review is for Splinter.

I’ve always loved the character of Splinter, the father character, the teacher, the wise one who has made mistakes of his own.  Splinter is strong and smart.  Which has always made him stand out to me, even when older and weaker in the original three movies, I still loved that rat.  He took good care of the Turtles and raised them well.  Which is why it is important to have a strong Splinter character in any universe of the Turtles.

This new Splinter has a mixtures of other Splinters in his looks alone.  He’s about the size of the classic toon, he has the mustache that the Splinter toy from the Next Mutation had, and he’s more grey like the Splinter from the 4Kids TMNT series.  Though we do not know much about him.  We do not know if he was human or rat first, we do not know how he got the Turtles or mutated.  This is a new story just waiting for us to discover. 

I give my full reactions to Splinter, his weapon and some talk of the rumors of things that fans think might happen in the movie all in this video review. If you really want to know what I think of this toy just give it a watch.  I recommend the Splinter toy to any TMNT fan who likes having a fun collection.  Playmates Toys did a good job on adding details and making him something that can fit on display or in an action packed toy play for kids.

Do you have the Splinter toy from the Ninja Turtles 2014 movie?  If yes, what is your thoughts on it?  Please share reviews, comments and questions below!
