Making their way to stores as these words hit your peepers are Playmates Toys new line of monster-inspired Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles figures called (coincidentally enough):  Monsters + Mutants.  The assortment includes Monster Hunter Leo, Monster Hunter Raph, Vampire Raph, Werewolf Mikey, Mutant Mummy Leo and the reason we’re all gathered here today…Frankendon!

TMNT’s evil villain Savanti Romero plans to unleash the world’s most famous monsters onto an unsuspecting NYC.  The only way to stop them is by fighting fire with fire!  Our boys make the sacrifice to transform into monsters, themselves, with Donatello leading the way by becoming:  Frankendon.

Standing 5 inches in height, the figure features multiple points of articulation.  With details like a screw coming out of his head, vacuum tubes in his back, oversized black boots and crack shell, Playmates Toys has done a great job taking elements from Frankenstein and mashing them up with the inventor of the group.

So…is the figure really worth it?  The only way to know for sure is to watch the latest episode of the Red chair show.

The Playmates Toys Tales of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Monsters + Mutants figures have an MSRP of $9.99 and are at stores right now.
