TMNT Mutagen Man

A while back I set a rule for myself, NO BUYING NEW TOYS! This rule covered thrift stores, yard sales, Brick and mortar stores, and especially internet shopping.Trading is ok because its like alchemy, equivalent exchange. But my friends, I am only human,with a weaknesses inherent to the human race...I LOVE TOYS. Yes, I indeed broke my own law. I gave it a Herculean effort, nearly 2 years without buying a new toy, but those plastic demons are hard to shake. The smell of fresh plastic right out of the pack, for me, is like the rush of heroine into a junkies veins. The tearing of the bubble off of the card gives me a euphoria rarely seen since the passing of the opium dens of  the Victorian era.With that said, this is the new TMNT Mutagen Man, my relapse.

    1. I like it though he has a few issues. He doesn't real safely hold water because he is meant to have slime in him so the seal will leak easily if he is knocked over.I also wish that his tank was clear instead of green, other then those things i think he is great.

    1. This is the only one I have seen but I do not check the toys that often. I also had Newtralizer in hand but I do not like him.

    2. I said I would never buy anymore Marvel Universe figures but here I am in the midst of a horrible addiction to Hasbros tasty little 3 3/4 super hero figures.Ive also said that I would never sell off certain figures in my collection and this past week ive damn near turned onto a power seller on ebay lol.Well,not quite but i have sold enough to support this nasty little plastic habit .

    3. I had a real problem my friend ! I used to buy EVERYTHING.For years I would buy one and sometimes two of everything in the toy aisle, I would buy any and all toys at the thrift store. I would clean out yard sales! Now Im buried in the stuff. I had to close down my ebay and paypal accounts because I have zero will power.Thats why I was saying if there is something pre 2009 that your looking for (other then marvel legends) there is a high chance that I have a few of it. At least you have stuff going out to make room for the new stuff you want, I on the other hand have a very hard time letting go of a lot of things.

  3. The original Mutagen Man is such a wonderful toy! This guy looks ok, but I am not terribly tempted to get him 'new.' I might pick him up at a garage sale or the flea market in time, when he gets tossed aside by some kid.

    I will have a tough time avoiding the Newtralizer when he hits retail though (if he looks good in person).

    1. I had Newtralizer in hand at the store so he is out.To me he isnt really great. He doesn't look like the preview pictures of him at all and his paint is muddy instead of bright and vibrant.
