As the Wyrm turns


Now that's a face not even a mother could love. Wyrm was part of the 1991 TMNT figure assortment, and for me, he ranks third in ugliness behind Mutagen Man and Muckman. Tugging on his hair caused his eyes to bug out, and his head was hinged for authentic eatin' action. He even came with a bunch of tiny red worms that you could "feed" to him. I actually had a Wyrm figure as a youngster, though I still find it hard to believe I bought him on my own. He just doesn't seem like the kind of character I would have been into back then.

I actually picked this one up as part of my yard sale score. I don't know who owned him before me, but I do know they must have been one cool kid.

  1. This guy is great, he has a real 'Rat-Fink' vibe. And I agree, between him, Muckman, Mutagen Man (and let's not forget Scumbug) you've got one big pile of old-school ugly!

    1. I always forget about Scumbug. I guess we have to add Baxter Stockman to the list as well. He was a rather hideous character.

  2. Yeah, ugly and well preserved. A kid who takes care of his/her toys is always cool :D
