Space April I received from Robot Monster Space Superhero, I also received Space Casey Jones from the most recent Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles action figure wave!
Space Casey is a good figure if you're into the Nickelodeon TMNT iteration of Casey Jones. But if Nick TMNT Casey isn't you thing, is the figure still any good?
Well, yes...but I do have a couple nitpicks.
Firstly: I have a problem with the inexplicable bubble-gum pink components of his space suit. What is up with that?!?! Now I'm not up on the cartoon, but from the pics I've seen online, the Pink Pearl Eraser pads aren't even cartoon accurate. It looks terrible, I need to find a brown sharpie or something else to cover it up.
If this Casey had his KISS make-up (or better still his hockey mask) under the space helmet I'd love this figure, regardless of whether or not it's toon accurate for him to look that way. Or if he had the make-up painted onto the dome itself - Oh yeah, that would look cool!
I suppose I could fix that issue myself if I felt so inclined. Hmm, maybe I will.
He has more articulation (with elbows AND knees!) and his costume design has a lot more...things...on it.
Aslo - no accessory. Come on Playmates - at least throw in a spacey hockey stick!
He's a good figure, he's just not 'Casey Jones' enough for me to have been a 'must have.' Although now that I have him, he does pair well with April and don't get me wrong, I greatly appreciate John from Robot Monster Space Superhero sending him my way! In fact, I am now looking forward to modifying Space Casey to make him slightly cooler. It should be fun!
