Shell Slammin' Michelangelo

I found this silly Michelangelo variant at the flea market a few weeks ago. Impossible to pass up for fifty cents, this is Michelangelo dressed like an eighties WWF pro wrestler. What's not to love?!?!

Originally he came with a cape and a championship belt and a themed weapon of some sort. Mine is accessory-less, but it doesn't detract from his ringside charm!

I assume the 'MTW' stands for 'Mutant Turtle Wrestling.' The hot-pink onesie is hilarious, and the sweet wrestling converse style shoes are just awesome. He has spring-loaded legs for high-flying 'rasslin moves. A silly variant to be sure, but one that could easily be canonical given Michelangelo's personality. Heck, even Spider-Man got his start this way!



  1. Didn't he come with a snake, too? I seem to remember him having a snake that was also wearing a headband.

    1. I believe so - not sure how a snake is relevant here, but you know classic TMNT - it doesn't have to make sense!

    1. I generally avoid the silly variant turtles, but sometimes they are just too perfect. This is one of those times!

  3. Just in time for Wrestlemania! I don't even watch wrestling, but love this figure.
