I don’t know a lot of 30 year old guys who weren’t Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles fans back in the day. That’s either because the property was all but ubiquitous in the late 80s/early 90s or because I mostly hang out with people who still read comics, collect toys and play video games.
I was huge into the line of TMNT figures and loved the cartoon and movies as much as anyone else, but my true love when it came to this franchise was the Ninja Turtles Sewer Playset. I didn’t actually have it myself, but a few different friends did and I always pushed to play with it whenever possible. As far as playsets go, it’s not the flashiest one in the world, but I liked how it gave you street-level and sewer-level options along with lots of little things to have fun with while playing. My personal favorite aspect of the set is the phone lines that your Turtles can hold onto, swing down and knock out the bad guys. This comes as little surprise looking back on a childhood obsessed with things that could do other things you wouldn’t expect.
