Playmates Brings Back TMNT Nostalgia Once Again 

"Always prepared for any sewer situation, this 4" Original Classic Storage Shell Leonardo's got everything he needs in his new ninja nook! Now when Leo leads the fearless foursome into Foot territory, he'll have all his wacky weapons to back him up. Everything fits neatly into Leo's traveling turtle shell, so load him up—because Leo is one leader who won't get caught with his back empty!"

"Because he's only got two hands, this 4" Original Classic Storage Shell Donatello relies on his shell to tote the tools of his trade! He's got his bo staff snapped to his back for easy retrieval, and when the going gets Turtle tough, he just opens his storage shell and selects a weapon from his awesome arsenal! Don's the first Turtle to perfect this super stash—now, he cannot only store weapons on his back, he can sneak secret sewer stuff right past the Foot Clan!"

"This tricky Turtle teen loves to fake out the Foot into thinking he's empty-handed, but we know better! With just a flick of his storage shell, he's got everything a Foot-fighting hero needs! So don't worry when Raph's all alone and surrounded by a hoard of henchmen, because his secret stash of Foot-flipping weapons is always right behind him."

"Michelangelo used to take mid-battle breaks to scarf down some heavy-duty pizza power! But now with his pizza-packing storage shell, this 4" Original Classic Storage Shell Michelangelo can just keep on going! There's lots of room for stashing snacks inside—there would be even more if he didn't have to take along an anti-Foot arsenal! But Mikey knows that without his Nunchuks, Pipe Grappling Hook and other weapons, he could end up as Turtle-toppings on a Foot Clan double crust special!"
