SDCC 2013 Gets A Way Better Shredder, Plus A Casey Jones Poster
Much as I dig the core team figures from Playmates’ new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles line, a few characters have left me cold — namely the evil Shredder, who sports few paint applications and minimal articulation. At Toy Fair 2013, Playmates revealed a much sharper take on the Shredster that will feature a removable helmet, a righteous cape and overall improved posability – but San Diego Comic-Con 2013 attendees can snag an even gnarlier (and shinier) version of the villain this July.
As revealed by The Hollywood Reporter, a chrome-ier take on Oroku Saki complete with personalized sewer lid base will be for sale at the Nickelodeon booth 4113. Official pricing info hasn’t been revealed just yet, but it could likely bear the same $20 price tag as last year’s Night Shadow Leonardo figure.
On top of the action figure goodness, fans who stop by Nickelodeon’s TMNT Q&A session at SDCC on July 19 from 2:15 to 3:15 p.m. in Room 6A will be able to grab a limited-edition Casey Jones poster. You can scope out all the TMNT swag below.
