Action Figure Review: Baxter Stockman (Glow-in-the-Dark) from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Ultimates by Super7

       Ready for some more Turtle Power? How about a new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles line? Then let's get ready for Super7's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Ultimates line, a new 6-7 inch scaled line of action figures based on the vintage Playmates Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles line.
