2012 Was a pretty amazing year for toys. It was hard to narrow it down to one favorite figure for the year. A few contenders were the super-rad Castle Grayskullman from Master of the Universe Classics, and the Hasbro version of MP-10 Masterpiece Optimus Prime. But in the end, pure child-like excitement and fun won the day with my number one choice.
A lot of new properties popped up like the new Nickelodeon TMNT line. This line really surprised everyone, myself included. The four main turtles were perfectly articulated, masterfully sculpted, and insanely low priced. I never would have imagined in 2012 we could get a great figure like this for under $8. That is why my choice is the new Playmates Nickelodeon Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles – Raphael.
