A while back I was watching a pickup video when I noticed a guy had bought a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (TMNT) piggy bank. I wanted that bad boy instantly and so I went on a search for it. Unfortunately it wasn’t sold in Canada, and importing it from the US would be too expensive so I decided to pass. Thankfully my patience paid off because this week Walmart finally stocked the TMNT piggy bank. From my knowledge the Raphael version is the only version released in this model. Michelangelo is my favourite Turtle, but I’m okay with owning Raphael. Ralphy is directly inspired by the original TMNT animated series, is pictured with his weapon of choice the sai, and is wearing his signature red bandana.
The piggy bank cost $10 in Canada, which is a steal because that’s also the US price (considering our dollar value is plummeting). This piggy bank was produced by FABNY, and was made in China in 2014. The paint job is pretty nice with a lot of detail and very little imperfections. While it’s meant to keep change, I plan to keep it as a collectable. FAB NY has also produced other figures such as Batman and Hello Kitty, so I hope they keep up the great work and we get to see other popular figures such as the Simpsons and Nintendo characters in the future.
