    I tried re-watching the 2nd and 3rd movie semi-recently. Emphasis on "try" because holy shit...

    I'd love to see parts 2 and 3 combined into one solid flick. When I watched both of them back-to-back a few years ago I was trying to figure out how you could do it; I seem to remember the major continuity problem being where to place the video store scene that opens part 3.

    It would be interesting to piece them back together. As you know, originally it was one movie but Lloyd shot too much footage and had the bright idea to make them into two movies.

    I guess you could put the video store scene (the only redeeming feature of part 3) as an end cap or have it open the film like a cold open.

    Legendary Pictures has picked up the rights to the series, which means a remake is probably in the planning stages.

    Lloyd just put this out on twitter, looks like there's some Toxie figures coming soon? He tagged the Super 7 store in his tweet.

    Those are just reaction versions of the old Playmates I think they were figures from the Toxic Crusaders cartoon based toy line.

    Yeah, the original Toxic Crusaders toys were made by Playmates, and the sculpts were done by the same guys that did the TMNT cartoon toys.
