31 Days of Toy Terror: Spider Bytez from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles by Playmates Toys
Paint is always a problem with TMNT figures. I like the color scheme itself, as the black body with red details and green claws looks great. The eyes are pretty messy, though, which is not good on a smooth, flat surface. There's also black paint showing through spots of red paint and spots of red paint that have dripped onto the black body. All of the details on Spider Bytez's body that should be red (his knees, the bands on his spider legs, and his shoulder bands) have been left unpainted. So disappointing!
The only accessories that come with Spider Bytez are his spider legs which plug into his body. I don't consider them accessories, so Spider Bytez gets nothing to play with. A can of Ooze? A web? Even a sword or something? Nope, nothing. Remember back when every TMNT figure came with loads of cool stuff? Yup- nostalgia!
Here are some other TMNT figures I've reviewed here on
