Rad Toy Review: Turtle Sub (2014)



Nickelodeon TMNT Turtle Sub Rad Review

MSRP: $19.99

Released: 2014

Rarity: Common


  1. Relatively cheap price point
  2. Included scuba Donatello figure which fits inside the sub
  3. Launching missile and opening sub mouth


  1. Weak paint applications and no included stickers
  2. Hollow insides with no sculpting
  3. Too darn small

Conclusion: While a fun and inexpensive toy for the new TMNT line the Turtle Sub really loses its appeal with a major lack of size, paint, and general cost cutting. It could have been a better toy if they would have included a simple sticker application sheet to liven up the sub and what is with only one of the cannons being spring loaded?

  • It’s a great vehicle in the series, but it’s execution in the line is certainly a disappointment. To make that in scale with the basic figures would have been cost prohibitive. I’m anxious to see how the LEGO version pans out.

    • I agree increasing the size would bring the price up substantially, I thought a little extra paint and some stickers would have gone a long way on this.

      • Some stickers would have improved it significantly; I saw this during a recent toy hunt and bypassed it completely.

        • I think I may slap some paint on it myself eventually. I keep staring at it and it looks bare.
