TMNT 2002 Sewer Slider Shell Cycle Raphael & Donatello

Turtles don’t even need solar freakin roadways when they have this awesome Sewer Slider. In reality it’s a transforming tunnel transport vehicle… so if traveling difficult ground or their tires (or legs) get blown off they simply rotate the wheels and convert mode to hover!

More danger? No problem… pull the tri-pipe exhaust to launch lethal ninja stars! Stabiliser wing missing from the back in these pics, but otherwise very good with no damage. Comes with 4 ninja star discs (originally six). The Sewer Slider comes with a 5 inch Donatello action figure from 2002

The Shell Cycle is the turtles fast blastin’ motorcycle. Missing its tin can missiles and measuring 8.25 inches long. Comes with 6 inch Raphael action figure from 2005

This pair of vehicles were brought out together by Playmates in 2002 and sold last month for £25 from our eBay listings
