Review: TMNT Half Shell Heroes Squirters


Playmates Toys has been bringing us all sorts of new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Products.  From doing the action figure line that fans have known and love from the beginning, they recently released to us the T-Machines and the Half Shell Heroes.  Half Shell Heroes has done so well that it recently inspired the “Blast to the Past” special and other toys in it’s line, including the Bath Squirters.  Here is my review of the TMNT Bath Squirters.

They come in two different packs, both of which are three packs.  They are based on the designs of their Half Shell Heroes figures.  The characters you get are Leatherhead, Splinter, Leonardo, Michelangelo, Donatello and Raphael.  They’re so much based off of their Half Shell Heroes figures that they are given the same expressions as the little toys.  This was not something I realized while doing the video, but shortly after.  The things that make them different is the title of their heads and paint jobs.  Donatello is missing his gap tooth, and Raph’s eyes are painted different which gives him a strange expression.  Splinter is missing the little bit of black that was on his face and his eyebrows are painted.

I do believe these would be more fun in a bath or a pool where you can hold them totally under water to fill them up faster and not worry about the mess.  I have yet to be able to test them in deeper waters than that TMNT bowl I had upon my desk.  Though I do have them set up around Cowabunga Corner, as I’ve enjoyed setting them up for photos next to each other.  They’re a fun part of the collection.

I recommend these to fans who like to collect their favorite characters.  I also recommend it to people who enjoy water toys, got pools or take baths often.  They would make great gifts for kids.  Making just another fun addition to any TMNT fan collection.

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:
