I can claim that I was a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle fan a few years before the animated series and toys made them Icons known throughout every school in the country. I even bought the Toys well into my young adulthood, though naturally I would just tell myself I was collecting them. I do not however recall ever seeing this page from the 1993 Playmates Toys catalog advertising the transforming Muta-Party Wagon!
I was well aware of the Party Wagon that Turtle boys rode around the city in but I’m pretty sure I would have lost it if I had seen it doing something like this…
How in the heck could the Foot Clan be able to match a Ninja Turtle in a transforming exo-skeleton Muta-Party Wagon? Sadly the toy was advertised but never put into production. So at least I don’t have to feel too bad about not having this awesome looking thing in my toy collection, since it was in the end relegated to Toys That Almost Were.
