Dire Beaver is the second of the four Dream Beavers to be released in the TMNT line. We met these freaky dudes back in season 3 of the show when the Turtles escaped New York to go to the farm. There was some pretty messed up stuff there, including these freaks!
Dire Beaver is a ‘repaint’ of Dark Beaver, who we saw quite a while ago. Since then, it didn’t seem likely that there would be any more beavers, and then Poof! There was Dire Beaver on the shelf.
For Dire Beaver, he is molded in purple. he has some highlights around, like the claws, tooth, nose, mouth, and eyes. He has a darker purple tummy with an exploding bomb on it. Can you say, “Demented Care Bears?”
I like these guys a lot. They don’t have the best articulation, but there are many in the line who lack there. They do have good movement in the shoulders and the legs, not to mention the ball jointed tail.
Two down, and two to go. Will we ever see Dread and Dave? Time will tell. I am not going to hold my breath for them, but I will be happy if we get them.
