Action Figure Review: Stealth Tech Michelangelo from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles by Playmates
He's articulated like the rest of his brothers: ball jointed knees, ball jointed hips, ball jointed shoulders, ball jointed elbows, and a ball jointed head. The only point of articulation that Michelangelo is missing that the first release from 2012 had is the wrist swivel. My Mikey's left leg is a little loose and seems to swivel a bit more than I'd expect it too. It doesn't seem to affect his ability to stand, though, but it seems worth nothing. Other than that, the quality control is pretty good. These guys definitely seem like they could handle the rough play that kids can put toys through.
Well, Michelangelo is the last of the Stealth Tech Turtles to be reviewed. I still love the concept of these guys and stand by my assessment that they're terrific toys. In a line like TMNT, variants are to be expected. Fortunately, these guys are some of the coolest TMNT variants ever. I'm giving Mike a good rating which is lower than the other guys. This is due to the slightly loose leg, drooping belt, and weird glue residue on the knee pad. Nothing earth shattering but still some blemishes on an otherwise good toy. It's nothing personal, Michelangelo, it's just business!
