Ninja Turtle Sewer Lair Raphael Playset – Turtle in a Turtle
Ever wondered if the Turtles stank? Well, this one has a sewer in it.
The Ninja Turtles got their Mini Playset treatment by the mid 90’s. We already had a few years of the Mighty Max Playsets, and the Ninja Turtles followed suite with several of their own. We got the Mini Mutants, the Turtle Top Playsets, which were disembodied heads that opened out, and finally, the Turtle in a Turtle playsets towards the end, celebrating the 10 year anniversary of the Turtles at a time.
This figure didn’t come at a good time for the Ninja Turtles, by 1996 the original cartoon was winding up, soon to be followed up with the Next Mutation. The last movie was in 1993, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 3, and the last decent video games we got on home consoles were the Tournament Fighters game for the Sega Mega Drive and Super Nintendo, both of these also released in 1993.
