NECA has been mashing together the Universal Monsters and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles for a new toy line, and thus far they’ve revealed Raphael as Frankenstein, Leonardo as Ygor, Michelangelo as The Mummy, and April O’Neil as the Bride of Frankenstein. The next addition to the line, revealed this afternoon, is Splinter as Abraham Van Helsing!
Van Helsing is of course the legendary monster hunter who takes down the likes of Dracula and Frankenstein, but we’re thinking this version may be working alongside the Turtles. Splinter is, after all, the father of the Ninja Turtles. Then again, maybe they’ve gone bad after transforming into monsters? And maybe the only one who can stop them is Master Splinter?
Check out your first look at Splinter as Van Helsing below!
The original Universal Monsters x TMNT line from Playmates featured Leonardo as The Wolfman, Raphael as The Mummy, Michaelangelo as Frankenstein’s Monster, and Donatello as Dracula, as well as April as the Bride of Frankenstein, Leonardo as the Creature from the Black Lagoon, Michaelangelo as The Invisible Man, and Raphael as the Metaluna Mutant.
