Minimates: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Mutagen Raphael
It is with great pleasure that I kick off this look at an awesome line of Minimate figures with the Mutagen Raphael figure. What the heck is a Mutagen Raphael? Well, it’s a Raphael figure from the Minimates toy line that I would equate with something that was doused in Mutagen ooze and is slightly translucent and glowy, but entirely awesome.
- Though this figure is without a full paint job due to the clear plastic showing, attention is still paid to the Raphael shell chip on his upper left front chest!
- Sharp detail on the bandanna to show “fighting eyes”.
- True of the line, the figures feel very sturdy and hold together very very well.
- Faithful to the Turtle, with all the right Sai holders in all the right places.
- The case seems only to be with the Mutagen flavor in this line, the hands are a little bit more rigid and more tightly closed, making it a little bit difficult to set weapons in grips, at least the first time. I had to use a keyring to stretch things out a bit.
- Mutagen Raphael is a fantastic figure and a tough one to find. If you can get your hands on him though, absolutely worth the purchase!
- Go grab this at Luke’s Toy Store today. Good ole’ Luke… That said though…Raphael is one to a case, and there are two regular Raphaels also in a case, so best of luck!
