Um, oops. I have been sitting on these pictures since March. There has been a lot going on in life, and something had to get bumped. It was poor Casey Jones. And it is even sadder being that he is a great figure.
I love the Playmates figures for the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles show on Nick, but I have HATED the human figures. They lack articulation big time. That is, until Casey Jones came along. He has all of the major articulation the Turtles has, plus a swivel in the waist. Nicely done Playmates.
He comes with his baseball bat and hockey stick. Both “weapons” attach to his back. I would like to have seen them in a color other than white, but maybe I will have to go back in there and touch them up. The hockey stick is not even the right stick. Casey in the show runs around with a goalie stick, so a little off there. It can’t be that hard to hand make a hockey stick. Challenge accepted.
With his best Turtle friend and greatest antagonist, Raph, Casey is a great scale to fit with the Turtles. He is slightly taller. With some figures like Shredder, it was apparent they were trying to get him to fit in the same size bubble as all of the other figures. This time, it worked.
Now all I need to find is Spike. You know, Raph’s little pet turned angry alien Turtle? Yup, he is coming, and I hope he is great.
