SDCC 2015: Playmates Revives Metal Mutants after 20 Years with TMNT Leonardo Exclusive

Playmates TMNT Metal Mutants Leonardo - 2015 and 1995

Playmates has revealed its Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles exclusive for San Diego Comic-Con – an 11-inch vac-metal plated Metal Mutants Leonardo. Long-time TMNT fans may recognize the Metal Mutants from 1995, when Playmates released the four turtles and Shredder under that moniker. Playmates gave some hints as to why Leo is bedecked in metal this time around, saying, “There was a previous Metal Mutants line, but that was more about animal spirit armor, not exploring Dimension X.”

No word yet on the price of the exclusive. I imagine we’ll see more Metal Mutants from Playmates at the big show, but wonder if there will be more in the 11-inch size or if Leo will be a one-off.
