Amazing collection, very interesting

Start working at home with Google! It’s by-far the best job Ive had. Last Monday I got a new Alfa Romeo from bringing in $7778. I started this 9 months ago and practically straight away started making more than $83 per hour. I work through this link, http://www.g00.me/Work

Cant belive I didnt see this here
June 14, 2011 at 3:27 am
Yeah I was curious if you guys had the talking turtle shells. I remember when I was a kid, certain ones came with “Happy Birthday” or something like that, and if you got another strip and put it inside of another turtle it may play. Can’t remember if it worked or not. Like 1 or 2 strips per turtle came in a pack (I think), and you could buy extra strips if you wanted.
I remember Shredder (or krang…so far back) had something like that and me and a buddy of mine tried to get it to say “Turtle Power” or one of the other strips in the box. Came pretty close, but I think we had to make it fit.
June 14, 2011 at 3:31 am
Man James and Mike looked so young there! I was into the turtles pretty long, at some point I was just buying the toys without watching the show anymore. I remember buying turtles that were like metal or something. I had those turtles wit the stuff in their shell. And the ‘transformer’ turtles that you could transform from a normal turtle into a ninja turtle.
June 14, 2011 at 3:33 am
Nice video guys, and i have to ask; Do you have any Toxic Crusaders lying around?
June 14, 2011 at 3:34 am
I remember I used to have EVERY figure. even the april with the green jumpsuit… what I hated most was the movie turtles with the hard plastic shell and rubber arms, head and legs. it was cook you could pop them off but hell if you could figure out how to keep them standing up. I believe I even had all the transformer turtles, a 15″ raff that I had sitting on top of my night stand, bed sheets, movies, pogs and the knock-off “mighty max” turtles sets
June 14, 2011 at 4:07 am
I love the old footage, haha.
June 14, 2011 at 4:09 am
man, i could of given Mike’s collection a run for his money back in the day. i prob had just as many action figures and vehicles. also had a Turtles boat,giant 12 inch action figures of the turtles, the life size turtles weapons toys, the TMNT giant puzzle pieces puzzle, halloween costume, slip-n-slide turtles, and my all time favorite, a turtles sewer hockey fooseball table game.
June 14, 2011 at 4:27 am
What’s with the Ninja Turtles??????? Is it the 20th anniversary or something like that? I mean since like 3 months now all I find on this site is just Ninja Turtles over and over! What’s that?
Now don’t get me wrong I love the Ninja turtles, being a ninties kid too. But hey now that’s becoming too much O_O!
Anyways. It’s your website. Do whatever you like.
June 14, 2011 at 4:39 am
Nice, love your TMNT vids. I had a collection of Medals, and it had all the characters on it, if you got the board for it on the back it had all details on each turtles, like favorite type of pizza height ect.
June 14, 2011 at 4:51 am
Bought a lot of those figs when they originally came out but stopped when it started to get out of control. I always liked Leatherface —I mean Leatherhead the most. Wished he was twice the size, though. That would have been cool. He always seemed kind of small.
June 14, 2011 at 4:58 am
Thanks for sharing, guys. That was really cool to see. : )
June 14, 2011 at 5:02 am
A great video as always. Almost makes me sad that I gave away all my toys, but hey, some kid had fun with them as I once did so its ok 😀
Also, loved the old footage!
June 14, 2011 at 5:21 am
June 14, 2011 at 5:34 am
Hahahaha, I really enjoyed this one. Motherfucker Mike and AVGN James, the best internet people in the world!!! It was fun seeing you when you looked a little bit younger 😀
June 14, 2011 at 5:41 am
Wow I never thought I’d enjoy watching two grown men play with TMNT toys so much. xD
I wasn’t into the Ninja Turtles for very long but I remember I had these miniature versions of the turtles that used to shoot marbles from their stomachs that I played with all the time. At least I think thats what they did.
Great video though :p
June 14, 2011 at 6:37 am
Lol at James’s nostalgia at 10:13
June 14, 2011 at 6:39 am
Rockin’ the turtles video game music. Nice!
June 14, 2011 at 7:44 am
If you haven’t found this yourself, you should check out the TMNT action figure museum (www.tmnttoys.com) and I’m sure you (James and MIke) would be especially interested in the Universal Studio Monsters Turtle set (http://www.tmnttoys.com/94figures/ustudios/ustudios.html).
Cool stuff though. I remember getting the original toys for about $6-$8 from KB Toys at least every other week. I had a pretty decent collection including some of the strange ones. Rappin’ Mike was cool to look at, but how the hell are you supposed to play with that? Does he attack shredder with his fat beats?
I also had the movie version turtles that had a higher level of detail to and some weird rubberized skin that made your hands smell like shit.
Anyways, thanks for the memories!
June 14, 2011 at 7:54 am
TMNT Generation 2! Wow, that’s just awesome. A great collection you have there, Mike.
I always wish we could see the vehicles and playsets a bit better, but I suppose I could read about that online or something.
The production said 2003-2011, so is this the last Turtle Tuesday video? Well, it probably just talks about the footage, when it was taken, I figure.
June 14, 2011 at 8:04 am
You guys looked so funny 8 years ago!
Don’t listen to Lyes Demri or whoever else…more Turtles stuff please!!!!!!
90’s kid my ass!
June 14, 2011 at 8:26 am
Does Mike have Aspergers? He doesn’t seem properly socialized.
June 14, 2011 at 9:12 am
Poor April O’Neil’s ass!
June 14, 2011 at 9:37 am
Great video, James and Mike! I’ve been loving everything related to Turtle Tuesdays so far, so keep it up! As a big TMNT fan, you’ve kept me entertained AND caused my love of TMNT to resurge after the TMNT dry spell of 2010. For that, I personally thank you. 🙂
Actually, the reason Tokka and Rahzar were created instead of Bebop and Rocksteady appearing in the movie is because Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird really cared for Bebop and Rocksteady and didn’t like the treatment given to them in the later episodes of the cartoon by making them idiots and walking punching bags. Eastman and Laird’s original vision of Bebop and Rocksteady was for them to be a more than even match for the Turtles and be strong, but beatable by the use of trickery and more powerful force. By Season 5, they were being beaten by pies thrown in their face. XD Since the movies are more serious than the cartoon and Bebop and Rocksteady would’ve been just as stupid as in the cartoon had they been given Tokka and Rahzar’s roles, they decided to create Tokka and Rahzar to prevent Bebop and Rocksteady’s to prevent them from looking like idiots in even the more serious incarnation of the series. They actually had the rights to the cartoon and every character used in it, but drew mostly from the comics to create a more serious film. Interesting bit of trivia for you. 😉
June 14, 2011 at 10:28 am
Ffs…. stop this shit James, start making gaming reviwes again, thats what i think most ppl come here for. They just watch this shit cuz there is no reviws… =/
June 14, 2011 at 10:31 am
The footage from 2003 was interesting because the picture didn’t look like it was taken 8 years ago & yet you could see from how different the guys appeared that it wasn’t recent.
June 14, 2011 at 10:34 am
Damn, I love turtle Tuesdays.
I hope this goes on forever 🙂
June 14, 2011 at 10:36 am
Hignus no one is forcing you to watch anything. A bunch of people love turtle Tuesday (myself inculded)
Visiting someones website, telling them to stop making videos they enjoy making….you’re quite the bold one aren’t you?
Promptly go fuck yourself.
June 14, 2011 at 11:20 am
Not really a turtles fan but I’ve been enjoying these videos none the less! Great work!
June 14, 2011 at 11:22 am
Oh GOD, I remember eating the mutigen lol
June 14, 2011 at 11:31 am
I don’t mind about these videos but i wish they could make something like a review for the turtles new series.Not showing some toys.I personally enjoy the movie reviews and the board games but i find these video pretty boring.Also did James lose a lot of weight or is this video old??? O.O
June 14, 2011 at 11:43 am
Awesome video guys. Lots of forgotten childhood memories popped up watching this video!
June 14, 2011 at 11:54 am
Hignus, James is doing what he likes. If *you* don’t like it, don’t watch… but don’t you DARE sit here and tell him what he should be doing, or try to put false words into the fans mouths, just because you’re an impatient little sh*t. . also if you notice, the website name is CINEMASSACRE, not ANGRY VIDEO GAME NERD. Pretty blatantly effing obvious there’s going to be more than just AVGN stuff on here. Long story short, shut your mouth, be patient, and be respectful of what James does. Jerks like you give the word “fan” a bad name.
Anyway…enough of that B.S., back to the topic of the video. Wow, you guys really had more than I did…I collected TMNT figures, but I didn’t have hardly any of the vehicles, I think I just had the Pizza Tosser thing…which my cat at the time liked chasing the plastic pizzas it shot. lol Also, I share your sentiment about the Krang figure…I hated that bubble walker and wished they had the robotic body, and didn’t find out til MUCH later (when i was in my early 20’s) that they even sold it.
June 14, 2011 at 11:55 am
Just like the first one, this was awesome, guys.
June 14, 2011 at 12:03 pm
It’s actually pretty awesome to see that Mike’s action figures are in really good shape.
June 14, 2011 at 12:08 pm
If you don’t like what James is doing then get the fuck off the site, he’ll make whatever the fuck he wants.
June 14, 2011 at 1:01 pm
These guys have cool stuff
and don’t that one thing looks kind of like the Death Star?
June 14, 2011 at 1:19 pm
I really like the duo of Mike and James. I hope to see more of Mike in the future because I really feel he brings a different element to your video’s.
I love your video’s James, whatever they might be… From game reviews to whatever you wanna label OverAnalyzers is. I’m sure you have heard this from a million people, but I just want to make sure that I am one of them. Obviously ignore anyone that isn’t giving you support about your movie, and complaining about the lack of videos. I personally found your still putting out more content then most other big name YouTubers, and this is you CUTTING BACK.
Good Luck with the movie. I wish I had some talent I could offer you, but I don’t (lol).
Thank You James, and everyone that helps you with your video’s, they rock!!!!
June 14, 2011 at 1:22 pm
Apart from some of the Turtle variants, myself, my brother & our cousin had nearly all the Turtle figures but when we got older, they sold them all.
Kind of regret that now 🙁
Great to see them in action again.
June 14, 2011 at 1:27 pm
Fuck the pathetic hater James, this was an awesome video. Vids like this make me want to break out my collection. I remember a couple of months ago there was an awesome lot of TMNT toys on eBay for about $600 bucks, about 70 figures and 20 vehicles, plus most of the figures had the bio cards. It was a really great deal. I wish I was rich so I could’ve bought it, but unfortunately other priorities kept me from bidding :(. Can’t wait for next Tuesday.
June 14, 2011 at 1:28 pm
Btw, great collection Mike :).
June 14, 2011 at 1:33 pm
Thanx for the great Memories!!
June 14, 2011 at 1:41 pm
when you got out that scene board where you put the cutouts of the characters in poses or whatever I got some mad nostalgia man, I used to have a batman set just like that when i was a kid and i completely forget that shit existed. The ending of this kicks ass too with the 2003 footage! crazy how you guys have changed.
June 14, 2011 at 1:50 pm
Jeez… I wish I wasn’t such an abusive child haha I remember having so many of those!
June 14, 2011 at 1:54 pm
awesome! I remember the old video you did too, so this is really cool. I think my favorite part of these videos is how you use the Turtles in Time music. So rad.
June 14, 2011 at 2:19 pm
Hignus why don’t you calm down, no one wants to know what you have to say. I would imagine each video take alot of effort to make. So if you don’t like the video’s don’t watch them, and don’t speak for other subscribers. How would you know if people watch these vids because there are no reveiws, you scrote munch.
June 14, 2011 at 2:21 pm
I love these videos, I remember playing with action figures when I was young and these kinds of videos bring back the memories, even though I wasnt born in the 80’s I still feel like ive played with these tmnt action figures! Great video!
June 14, 2011 at 2:23 pm
I love the older clips at the end ;O
June 14, 2011 at 2:35 pm
Drilled up the ass…..nice one 😀 And i got the robotic turtle from the end… i think ill keep and give it to my grand-kids XD
June 14, 2011 at 2:36 pm
I love Turtle Tuesday, I look forward to it each week more than I did AVGN each month. Keep up the great work, if and when we get to see any sort of AVGN review at some point is just icing on the cake. Thanks for so much great content =)
June 14, 2011 at 2:43 pm
I’m so sick of all this bitching. I really wished James had stuck with his original idea of putting AVGN on hold to concentrate on his other projects. I wish there were new episodes as much as anybody, but it’s like he is feeling forced by “fans” to make new episodes. If you are a real fan of something then you give the creator the opportunity and time to make something special and different. These other quick reviews and short pieces are meant to entertain people and let the man still have an output for his creativity. Why don’t you just try and enjoy them and not bitch about free entertainment. If you don’t enjoy them, then maybe quit coming here. That is what I would do.
June 14, 2011 at 3:28 pm
I agree with Eric Christopherson completely. Keep up the good work guys!
June 14, 2011 at 3:32 pm
I love the TMNT videos!!! this is great =D!!
June 14, 2011 at 3:48 pm
i love motherfucker mike ^^ so excited and funny all the time, haha 😀 and you were both so cute in 2003!!! i died!!! XD
Awesome video! I love it!
June 14, 2011 at 4:55 pm
This was great. Tomorrow I will make a video responce on youtube with my husbands tmnt collection and I will post it here in the comment section. There is a lot!!
June 14, 2011 at 5:21 pm
Dear God…..the sequel to one of my first videos watched.
June 14, 2011 at 5:23 pm
Wow, so much April abuse. :p
June 14, 2011 at 5:31 pm
That Tor Johnson mask comment had me in stitches. Now I’m gonna think of Tor every time I watch the turtles…
June 14, 2011 at 5:56 pm
5 : 51 That fucking chef!!!! I HAD THAT FIGURE AS A KID, and never guessed until today it was from TMNT!!!! he was always a fucking loser in my daily action figure bashing and trashing!
June 14, 2011 at 6:06 pm
Oh and hell, Mike’s got an awesome collection!!! i liked the ending scenes from that old footage, hope we can see more old stuff 🙂
June 14, 2011 at 6:34 pm
There was an announcement about Nickelodeon’s TMNT series.
The guy that played Raph in the original cartoon will now be playing Donatello.
June 14, 2011 at 7:29 pm
I had that pizza guy among other things and I live in Sweden 😀
You get a special feeling of happiness when you remember that you had something that you forgot about.
Thanks for the show guys!
June 14, 2011 at 7:51 pm
Hey Hignus, how about you go die in a fire right about now, mmkay?
June 14, 2011 at 7:55 pm
Nice collection Mike, I had a shitload of Turtles but gave them up to my cousins forever ago. I wonder if they still have that shit…
June 14, 2011 at 8:00 pm
June 14, 2011 at 8:02 pm
LOL u looks so diferent at the end, nice video
June 14, 2011 at 8:14 pm
i wonder if mikes sister is hot 😉
June 14, 2011 at 9:04 pm
My Splinter was always naked too. I don’t even remember ever having the robe. I probably lost it soon after I got it.
June 14, 2011 at 10:03 pm
This brings back so many memories. I remember having all the BK kids club TMNT VHS tapes. I was so happy to have them back in the day 😀
June 14, 2011 at 10:12 pm
Awesome clip! This is almost as good as the last one you did. I wish you would do more stuff like this!
June 14, 2011 at 10:18 pm
Your mother fucker Mike = Too funny’
June 14, 2011 at 10:19 pm
“I wanted the Krang Body, but it was a shame I wasn’t into the turtles anymore.” (then shows off entire turtle collection)
June 14, 2011 at 10:22 pm
Awesome collection Mike. I used to most of those toys too, unfortunately I lost them years ago when my family had a fire. I Just found one of them recently, Its the one the shoots pizza.
June 14, 2011 at 10:50 pm
I never had that many TMNT toys and even the ones I still have pretty much are missing all of their weapons and everything. Here’s a question though. Did anybody else think that the original Shredder toy just looked sickly? It always bugged me how skinny his body looked.
June 14, 2011 at 11:08 pm
Watching this brought back a lot of old memories. I had nearly everything that was shown in this video back when I was a kid.
June 15, 2011 at 12:52 am
I honestly DON’T know how you guys managed to keep all of your toys and stuff from you childhood. I lost most of my toys and childhood drawings and shit YEARS ago.
Props for managing to keep so many relics of your childhood….Good stuff.
June 15, 2011 at 1:13 am
I never really had any turles toys even though I was a fan of the show at a young age, I was more into the batman toys. However my neighbours had a whole bunch of them and I remember this one specific turltes, I think it was donatelly and when you shifted his torso foward it kind of locked him into this mechanism where he would do a backflip and land on his legs again. But as for any dissapointed kid, it rarely worked.. maybe 1 out of 20 times. But when it did! Oh man was it awesome.
June 15, 2011 at 10:06 am
Ah man. I had a load of these when I was younger but I never knew what weapons went with which figures. They’re in a container somewhere. I should find them.
June 15, 2011 at 11:04 am
woulda been kinda cool if I managed to keep all my old shit. Problem was, I moved every 6 months, so I always lost shit.
June 15, 2011 at 11:22 am
So here ya go this is our TMNT collection http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Em3_2pn24QY
June 15, 2011 at 2:00 pm
Woulda thunk one of you had Star Trek action figures. : )
June 15, 2011 at 5:02 pm
I’ve got a Michelangelo Plushie. Or, had. I don’t really know where it is now.
June 15, 2011 at 6:01 pm
Wow, this brought back soo many memories for me. I had a lot of the toys when i was a kid that Mike has and there were so many i forgot about.
One neat one i had that comes to mind was “wolfman Leonardo” where his torn shirt, teeth and eyes would glow in the dark. Any toy that glows in the dark was always so exciting for me.
June 15, 2011 at 11:55 pm
Jeeeze, seeing this videos puts me in such a good and nostalgic mood! I used to have a lot of those action figures you have Mike! It feels good to see those again. I think 1 day I am just gonna buy a whole bunch of those online for nostalgic reasons. Keep these up guys, like I said, it really puts me in a way good mood!
June 16, 2011 at 8:24 am
mike hasn´t changed much since then (2003), but james looks so different!
nice video though
June 16, 2011 at 10:04 am
OMG James looks so different in those old shootings!
June 16, 2011 at 3:58 pm
June 16, 2011 at 4:48 pm
OMG awesome freaking awesome collection dude is so awesome and in a very good shape that almost brings tears on my eyes love the turtles and man happy they will bring a new series and even happier that they will do a live action movie awesome video dude’s.
keep the good work going
later my friends take care and remember be cool
June 16, 2011 at 5:51 pm
Mile and James should take all their toys and make a brand new Turtles episode lol.
June 16, 2011 at 9:30 pm
TMNT fans you got to check this out!
June 16, 2011 at 10:08 pm
Major lawlz at drilling April O’niell in the ass with a laser gun.
June 17, 2011 at 1:12 am
Thanks guys. This brought me back. I only had like six different figures but I saw them all here.
June 17, 2011 at 1:45 pm
I always liked casey jones he’s like a knock off of punisher. Killing assholes with sports equipment. God damn all my toys are missing in action. I used to have over two hundred hot wheels but neighbor kids would steal them from my younger brother and sister. I mean ‘borrow’ and never return. At least I’ve kept the majority of my art… that didn’t get ripped up from kids at school.
June 17, 2011 at 3:32 pm
look at 8:30. toy boxes from the 80s had INCREDIBLE artwork. today it is all stupid 3d CGI – computer generated art. no more amazing hand drawn art akin to mcfarlane’s spidey, jim lee’s x-men, the list goes on. i wonder who even did the artwork for this show? can you find out james? were they famous artists or animators?
June 17, 2011 at 3:38 pm
james looks like bill gates at the end of the video!!
June 18, 2011 at 12:25 am
Have you ever seen the TMNT UNIVERSAL STUDIOS figures?
there great, i got em all, theres Dracula, Mummy, Wolfman, Frankenstein, Lagoon Creature , Invisible man, Metaluna Mutant & April Bride of Franky.
June 18, 2011 at 1:50 am
You should’ve put April on top of action Splinter. 😛
June 18, 2011 at 1:56 am
The reason why Bebop and Rocksteady are not in the second movie has nothing to do with rights from the cartoon. Peter laird and Kevin Eastman Fought tooth and nail to not have them in the movie and they got what they wanted.
June 18, 2011 at 12:31 pm
i have a KILLER transformer g1 collection!
June 18, 2011 at 8:48 pm
April always gets messed up in all of these videos. It’s like “Oh, there’s Baxter, that’s cool. Look, there’s April! Shove Krang up her ass!” Always fun to see these videos.
June 18, 2011 at 9:00 pm
My brother had that Krang in the walker. It’s still around somewhat, in pieces.
June 19, 2011 at 3:01 pm
I had at least half of all this stuff, and I’m sure I have at least some of it somewhere, but man this brings back good memories. Though I admit sometimes I had multiples of some figures because my play time battles were a bit violent, if the turtles didn’t decapitate their enemies or knock them into an exploding mountain then it wasn’t a good fight!
June 19, 2011 at 6:44 pm
wow james, u changed a lot when u got older 🙂
June 19, 2011 at 8:01 pm
HAHAHA! You guys bring nerdom to a whole new level! Bravo gentleman, Bravo!
June 21, 2011 at 6:22 pm
ha ha ha ha ha ha ha you guys rock, what a great video, you can play the game here way to go James, great action and its good to see MFM in all his glory.
but please leave the referall as it is when you sign up as a way of a thank you please
June 24, 2011 at 4:45 am
This does bring back a lot of memories. I actually had a turtle 4th birthday party and my favorite was Michelangelo. I remember tossing turtle weapons down the air vents at my house. I remember playing with the color forms for hours. I had a lot of the same stuff in this video and most of it is out in my shed. I actually can remember 2 toys I had that wasn’t in the video. One was a giant 3 foot turtle that came with weapons for you to use too. The other one was a transforming turtle that would go from a pet turtle to a mutant turtle. Good job on the video Mike and James.
June 28, 2011 at 6:13 pm
Was that Mike doing the Casey Jones impression? Spot on, man. Best part of the video.
August 3, 2011 at 3:52 pm
For some reason, my cousins also had Muckman and the pizza guy. Probably because they had as big of collection as yours.
Holy cow, I forgot all about Colorforms.
August 10, 2011 at 6:25 pm
August 15, 2011 at 11:26 am
Another good one guys. Mikehas a great TMNT collection. I hope we see one of Jame’s soon. The only time we saw his figures was in the Generation TMNT vid. I always wondered though why any of the Turtle figures didn’t have that much joint movement except the 2007 movie figures. Once again this was fun and a good vid. Makes me want to hunt down a good few of these guys that I don’t have on Ebay somewhere.
January 1, 2012 at 10:40 pm
I had some of these.
January 16, 2012 at 4:07 am
I remember having those colorforms, but mine was Sesame Street 😀
February 26, 2012 at 1:13 pm
dude its Howerd the duck lol
August 8, 2012 at 8:23 pm
i love cinemassacre and avgn cant wait for the moive
May 18, 2013 at 4:00 pm
This is my first comment here after watching for many years. Really I dont even know what to say. Every video is a trip down memory lane somehow. I’m 27 now and I collect many of the same games and things you two do. I’ve always felt a connection or bond when watching your videos. You two are very lucky, I wish I had a friend to share my love of these things with.. Anyways I totally had that same raphael tooth brush thing growing up among other things in the video. Thank You for bringing some joy into my days
July 30, 2013 at 4:38 pm
I remember having some turtles an ghostbusters figures when they came out but that stuff is long gone now
July 30, 2013 at 10:26 pm
Wow you have all the stuff i wanted as a kid. Thanks for the trip back in time. <3
