TMNT’s Raphael Becomes Frankenstein’s Monster In Weird Crossover Toy

NECA is posting packaging images of the “Raphael as Frankenstein’s Monster” crossover toy in a new Instagram post that shows off the spooky look of the TMNT.

The National Entertainment Collectibles Association (NECA) just revealed a weird and wonderful new collectible item Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Raphael transformed into Frankenstein monster from the classic Universal, Frankenstein. The company is known for producing iconic horror character collectibles and recently added TMNT to its license list. Of course, the turtles themselves are almost as famous pop icons as Frankenstein’s monster. Like the classic horror icon, turtles are often used in crossbreeds, such as a previous toy line where they crossbreeded with the Power Rangers.

Now there is a new cross with TMNT. Last October, NECA announced the release of the figure line that features a cross between Universal Monsters and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. The line will bring the spooky spirit of Halloween by portraying the famous turtles as classic monsters from Universal Pictures. The announcement also revealed that Raphael was the first turtle figure to be released.

This week, NECA unveiled footage of the TMNT and Universal Monsters crossover are featured on Instagram, and it’s a sight to behold. The toy company mixes Raphaël, who speaks loudly, of TMNT with the much less articulated Monster of Frankenstein for their new 7 inch action figure. The post shows the packaging of the next collectible figure, which is reminiscent of a classic universal horror poster style and offers an overview of the figure and its accessories. In the caption, NECA declares “Raphael as Frankenstein’s Monster“will be available in early 2022, and the comments section is looking forward to it. Check out the images below:

From these new images of the crossover figure and its packaging, enthusiastic collectors can fully appreciate the detail that NECA has put in this line. The monster mash-up is unmistakably both Raphael and Frankenstein’s Monster, but it also doesn’t look like Raphael in a Halloween costume. The movie poster design on the packaging would not be out of place on a real universal monster movie while the classic TMNT Raphael’s font and detailed features honor TMNT Perfectly. Raphael even has the tortoise warts from Jim Henson’s creature design.

The TMNT is constantly being restarted and redesigned, so it is not uncommon to see a new range of TMNT toys. From the end of the 80s to the present day, TMNT action figures have been extremely popular, which is why new versions continue to be released. Fans old and young alike are urged to collect each version. Collectors will certainly be excited about the new range of TMNT figures due to its horror film twist. The cross between the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and the Universal Monsters are sure to add variety to any collector’s shelf.
