Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Turtle Assault Van Review (Playmates Toys)

What It Is

The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Turtle Assault Van is a vehicle playset that recreates the Turtles' mode of transport in the movie Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. The van doesn't come with any action figures, but it works with basic Turtles movie action figures, sold separately. There is space for two figures in the driver's and passenger seats. The back of the van includes a launching luge assault vehicle that seats one figure. The van also features real rolling wheels, an opening side ramp, opening top hatch, working winch, and launchable projectile on the roof.

Is It Fun?

Turtles fans will love all the moving and launching pieces on this vehicle. It helps kids play out scenes from the movie or imagine all-new Turtles adventures.

Who It’s For

The Turtle Assault Van is for TMNT fans ages 4 and up.

What To Be Aware Of

Assembly is required, and it took us 30 minutes to put together. The instructions were very easy to follow.

Using the luge feature is a little difficult to do, especially when there is an action figure on it. The figure's head sometimes hits the top of the van, preventing the luge from sliding out. You'll just need to use some trial and error to get the action figure's position right.

Playmates says that not all Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles action figures will work with all of the van's features.
