2014 Casey Jones

Posted in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles with tags , , , , , , , on May 8, 2014 by Jason

This is one of 4 TMNT figure I have purchased from the new series that I had yet to open.  I finally broke down, and was able to open him up a few nights ago.

I was pretty excited when I saw this figure hit the pegs, and snagged one the second time I saw one(didn’t have the dough the first time around).

 A lot of differences from the Casey from the old series, but I really like the updated look.  At first I was unsure if I liked it, but after seeing him in recent episodes, he has become one of my favorite characters, besides the Turtles themselves.

And on the back, you can get a view of how he looks on the show.  The face paint definitely makes the character, I don’t know, a little more dark?  In the show, Casey is a high school hockey player, which may also play a part in why I like the character somuch.

As you can see, he comes with a few accessories, including a removable mask.  The goalie blocker is not removable, which is fine, since it not able to be lost this way.  I only wish that he came with a goalie stick like he has in the show.

Another cool thing about the character, is that in the show, there is a reference to the creators of the Turtles on Casey’s hockey gear(Laird on the blocker, and Eastman on the goalie stick).

 I’m happy that that they gave Casey a bit more articulation then the other non-Turtle figures of the first wave.  While not super-articulated, Casey can be posed nicely.

Casey’s shoes also double as kind of like roller blades in the show, and that is reflected on the figure.  While not movable, they are molded onto the feet.

 I give him a 9.9 out of 10!
