Super7 Ninja Turtles Wave 6 Remakes the Rarest Vintage Figure, Scratch

In keeping with recent Super7 Ultimates action figure releases, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles line will expand from four figures per wave to five. But Wave 6 offers an even bigger surprise. The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Ultimates line recreates toys from the original Playmates line with modern sculpting and articulation. But wave 6 includes a character many O.G. fans might never have seen. Scratch the Cat, who never appeared on the cartoon, became the rarest figure in the line, fetching upwards of $3,000 on eBay. The feline convict simply had the misfortune of existing in relatively small quantities because Playmates didn’t expect as large a demand for him as a Turtle.

Now, at least, fans can obtain the character, in a larger scale and for $55. Joining him? Fan favorites Ace Duck, evil turtle Slash, and a multipack of Mousers. Of course there’s an inevitable hero variant: Sewer Surfer Mike. Because anyone who’s gonna say “Cowabunga!” needs to catch some waves on a board.

Slash should also be a fan fave, as several collectors felt let down by NECA’s faithful-to-the-cartoon figure, preferring the old toy look. Super7 is the company uniquely positioned to redo that specific design.

But Scratch feels like the highlight, and should also find popularity among cat lovers who simply feel their favorite pets are schemers. Preorder him, Ace, Slash, Mikey, and the Mousers from sites like Entertainment Earth to save on shipping, or Super7 directly if one prefers.
