TOYS OF 2023: Splinter as Van Helsing


OK. I’ve been trying to alternate new toy posts with not new toy posts but right now, I don’t have a lot else to post about. I’ve been working on a couple of big projects. One of them is getting close to done and the other is done but I have to get through at least some of the new toys before I can post it.

So: Splinter as Van Helsing. I don’t own many (any?) other TMNT toys. I don’t own many (any?) Universal Monsters toys. But when this rat in a coat was announced, it spoke to me. I don’t know why, but it did and I had to pre-order it.

So, yeah. Splinter the rat in glasses and a hat and vampire hunting gear, including stakes, a crossbow, and multiple arrows, including one with three garlic cloves shishkebabbed on it. It’s just cool-looking.

It’s NECA, so the articulation isn’t astonishing, but the legs have way more articulation than I thought once I freed up the joints. Just a nifty little figure. It also comes with a spare head that doesn’t have the hat, but if you’re a “my vampire hunting rat has glasses but NO HAT” we probably disagree on a bunch of other things, too.
