Vintage TMNT Scale Tail

scale2

I’m surprised it took until 1992 before a snake was added into the TMNT mix but once they finally brought out Scale Tail they did a really bang up job. He’s a bounty hunter from Dimension X hired by Krang to hunt down the turtles.

Scale Tail wasn’t a human/snake mutant so he had no legs to walk on but Playmates did a really great job giving him an articulated tail that can help balance him upright. They also loaded him down with weapons, even replacing his forked tongue with a forked gun!

Scale Tail had several accessories. One looks to be a rocket pack meaning this snake could fly. I guess that could make him the Boba Fett of the Turtle-verse as they are both rocket pack wearing bounty hunters that look really cool.

Scale Tail is a wicked looking colorful figure that really adds to the Dimension X characters like Antrax and Wingnut. He fits in perfect with Krang’s aliens and Shredder’s Foot Clan mutants.

    I really dig this guy. I found mine at the flea market a few years ago so I don’t have his jet pack though. I didn’t realize he came with one!

      The jet pack makes absolutely no sense but in the confines of TMNT that makes perfect sense.
