Invisible Man MichaelangeloMy Invisible Man Michaelangelo seems to have discolored despite being kept in a dark box, but such is life. The figure is mostly covered in paint, but there are clear bits like his head, hand, and foot to sell the whole character. This newly-oldly-sculpted figure has a suit, tie, belt, and even a shoe. It's a far cry from now, where such a figure might have just been realized by casting the basic Mike figure in clear colorless plastic.

To make the invisible visible, a two-part bandage accessory snaps over his head and give the figure something of a face. The goggles look great, and the dangling elements from his bandana fit into a hole in the back of the mask. It looks really great, and the vibrant blue of his pants looks excellent against his orange bands. Symmetry wasn't a big part of the 1990s toy aesthetic, so this partially torn, semi-visible figure looks quite dynamic in person.

Invisible Man Michaelangelo

Playmates Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Invisible Man Michaelangelo Action FigureThis figure's accessories are built around a chemistry set motif, with test tube nunchucks and an actual chemistry set. The blue bottle reads "Eau de Invisible," although this detail may be hard to make out given the accessories' lack of deco. The beaker fits right in to the larger base, and if there were a shelf included with this set, would look great on it. It's a creative accessory, but I don't remember ever really playing around with it much. The nunchucks, sure. "Let's do science!" is a weird play pattern for a ninja/monster/surfer dude hybrid figure.

Today this figure will set you back $20 or so as a packaged or complete sample, and while I wouldn't say it's necessarily worth that it is quite good. If the price is right and your budget permits, get one.
