Metalhead was created by Krang to destroy the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. But the turtle who “does machines,” Donatello, reprogrammed Metalhead, and now he’s one of the turtles’ allies! And also their maid, so that’s weird.
The original Metalhead toy was part of the second year of TMNT toys, coming out in 1989.
The chrome torso sure is neat, but he’s a robot! And robots are made of metal! Especially one named “Metalhead!” So I decided to cover one of the Metalhead toys I acquired when I was buying TMNT toys in cheap eBay lots in metallic paint. And this is what happened:
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Krang, Donatello, and Metalhead are all property of Nickelodeon.
