Personal Notes: When I was younger, I was also a fan of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. I discovered first the Mirage Studio Comics, then the original cartoon show. I only had the 4 Turtle figures from Playmates original TMNT line, which I sold later at a flea market.
Since December 2011, I have been lucky to find some of the vintage Playmates TMNT pieces for my collection. Thanks to the Giant Robot Comics Store in my area, I have bought a near complete Techodrome and a near complete loose set of the Series 1 figures from 1988 (as seen in the photo). At the flea markets, I had also found some other vintage TMNT figures and the Party Wagon (near complete with the box)… and then I found the Sewer Playset!
A cool set with various features for our heroes-in-a-half-shell. Only missing 2 pieces. Toy companies don’t make cool playsets like they used to.
