It makes sense to have the Super7 Mousers as an Addendum to the NECA review. Created by Baxter Stockman, these little robots were supposed to kill rats, but they were a cover-up for Stockman's criminal activities. Now they're cannon fodder for the Turtles and Friends.
Mouth, head, and thigh swivel. It isn't as great as NECA, but it's functional.
|Nefty-kun: Oh great, Mousers! And not the Mary kind... Yes, that was a Cobra Kai Reference... and out of respect I won't make any Wax On Wax Off jokes. In any case I need to kick some Metal Shrieker ass before the become Robutt Blasters!|
Paint and sculpt
The "new Mousers" are the same as the one from Baxter. The Battle Damaged ones have bew sculpts on the head... the torso is just a tampo. They added some silver drybrushing to the scuffed mousers, which is an OK touch. Other than that, they're mousers.

Nefty VO: You didn't earn that JoJo reference...
Here is where Super7 dropped the Ball. For $55 we got:
5 Mousers with 2 of them getting a new head
2 turtles, same as Splinter's
1 rat with bandana
1 mouser controller
1 ooze canister
1 slice of Pickle and pepperoni pizza...
When you compare that to NECA's $40 Mousers that had
4 intact Mousers with more articulation
1 Battle Damaged Mouser
2 broken beyond repair Mousers
1 wedge of cheese
1 slice of pizza
A spy fly
NECA's cost less and we got more newly tooled stuff... aside some of the rats, everything else is 100% new tooling. With Super7, the only new pieces are:
Battle damaged head (2 pieces) everything else is reused.
So, it feels a little bit more underwhelming.
The Mousers get a 4.0 as their final score. The math says 4.0, but I believe it should be lower. Tons of reuse and pointless accessories, paired with underwhelming mousers is a bad combo...
These need to be revisited and expanded upon... as I stated on an earlier rant. I don't hate them, but I don't love them... they could've been better.
