Playmates Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Ninja Control Shellraiser

My son loves this new vehicle, which has all the bells and whistles and has been dubbed “so cool”.   The Turtles figurines can really ride on it, and it fits in really well with the rest of the set if you have a little collector.  Side note- daddy had a lot of fun playing Turtles with my 6 year old as well.  He played with the “old school” version when he was a kid, and we still have some of the oldies floating around the house.  “Drive the Turtles into their next battle with this new, full-function remote control vehicle. From rail-riding to street-surfing, Donatello’s customized combat creation packs a powerful punch. With the green team all aboard, the Turtles will cream the Kraang with a frenzy of fast-firing sewer covers!  This vehicle comes with full-steering remote-control action, as well as the ability to control the rapid-fire sewer-cover cannon. Compatible with most Turtles basic action figures (sold separately).”  $49.99, most toy stores and online as well.
