Brutal Shredder Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Action Figure Review

This is my review of Brutal Shredder from the currently TMNT action figure line. He had been on my list as one of the figures that I wanted to get. I was in the store the other day and they had just put out a new case of Turtles figures so after a few minutes of digging I found Shredder and adopted him into my action figure family.

First off I have to say that this is a new repaint of the original Shredder from this line, and I like it enough but truthfully I would rather have Shredder in his classic purple color. An issue I have with Shredder is that the only accessory he comes with is his helmet which is a necessity and not an accessory so I really feel like he comes with nothing, not even a sword.

My only other gripe is that he is a pain to pose without him falling over. His legs will not work unless they are bent in a fighting stance which does look pretty good but I wouldn't have minded if he was easier to stand up.

Around back the Shredder has a rubber/plastic rigid cape that can be removed which is a nice feature but I found that you can kind of cheat and use his cape to help Shredder stand.

Compared to other characters in this line, the Shredder is pretty tall which makes sense but to me, his feet seem to be way bigger than they would be, but I could be wrong. Then I think if his feet are so big why isn't he easier to stand up?

Overall I have to say I like this figure, despite the few issues I had. Also, a big plus is that his limbs are super loose like Baxter Stockman's were. If you are collecting figures from this line of toys I would recommend this figure, but if you can I would say to buy the original version. I give Brutal Shredder a 7 out of 10.
