Rocksteady is personally one of my favorite villains from the Ninja Turtles so i was so excited to see that they were going to be in the movie because i knew we would be getting a figure for him, but did Playmates disappoint like they do in any TMNT line that isn't a Turtle? well lets find out

Packaging:

If you have been buying the Nick Turtles toys you what to expect from the packaging because it hasn't change for the new movie line. The packaging has a yellow and green background, with the log at the top and a picture of all the Turtles on the top left. You have the Rocksteady figure clearly displayed in the middle with his name located right below him.

Final Thoughts:

OMG where do i start? i love this figure! Playmates has made an amazing figure this time around. He has more articulation then any villain that i could remember. The sculpt for him is on point as well. I never picked up the Nick Turtles Rocksteady because i wasn't in love with it, but this new Rocksteady could fit in both the movie and Nick Turtles line. One thing i also found that they didn't skip out on to much paint like they normally do with figures. I highly recommend this figure to anyone who is a fan of TMNT. He has that movie and classic feel to him, something most toys now a days cant do.

Time for some Toying Around!!!!
