One more Turtle to go! Following the Universal Monsterfication of Leonardo and Raphael, Michaelangelo has joined his brothers to become a classic movie villain. Lots of new photos of the upcoming Universal Monsters-inspired figure were posted today on NECA’s website.
Mikey is looking a bit dusty. The once partying turtle is now a withering mess wrapped in bandages, and he somehow manages to pull off a Boris Karloff’s grimace. This Turtle is based on a classic ’30s Universal Monster movie like the last two figures. This time, if it wasn’t already obvious, the theme is Karl Freund’s 1932 version of The Mummy.
Mummy Mikey comes with six interchangeable hands, a cobra, two sets of ankh-chucks, some loose bandages, and a swappable head that looks very much like the disintegrating remains of some Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie props.
It’s Turtally Terror-tastic! NECA is thrilled to announce a new addition to its Universal Monsters x Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles action figure collection. The line pays tribute to the world’s most famous turtles and Universal’s icons of horror. Michelangelo as The Mummy reimagines the Turtle as The Mummy, awakened from his eternal slumber by an undying love… of pizza! Don’t be late with his pie or you may run afoul of The Mummy’s Curse! Includes two ankh nunchuks, interchangeable heads and hands, bendable cobra, and extra bandage drapes. Comes in collector-friendly window box packaging with opening flap featuring a custom illustration.
All we have left out of the four main Turtles is Donnie. Which creature could he be? If logic is what we’re going by, Don would probably turn out to be Dracula. However, since NECA used Leo as Ygor, the final character could be anyone from the classic era of Universal creature features.
Which movie monster do you think Donatello will be? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.
