Redeeming Pizza Points One Last Time

A few months ago I received an e-mail from Playmates toys letting me know that they were discontinuing their Pizza Points reward program that was a promotional tie-in for the new Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles toys. If you are not aware of the Pizza Points program, it goes a little something like this: You buy a Rise of the TMNT toy, inside is a slip of paper with a unique Pizza Points code, you go to the Playmates Toys website to enter the code and use the points from said code to redeem for premium products.
My kids and I had amassed quite a few points and I didn't want the opportunity to disappear, so I went to the web, entered our final codes and we had enough to redeem for their Rewards Pack #1. This only cost us 50 Pizza Points plus $8 shipping. We waited and in 4 to 6 weeks our box finally arrived in the mail!
The neon green box was unmistakable. This was going to be AWESOME! What was in the box you ask? Well, keep reading as we open this baby up and see what was received fresh from the sewers!
There were 2 sheets of these Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles stickers...
a cool cloth Leonardo ninja mask...
this pretty big Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles poster...
and finally this incredible Muckman action figure!!! I remember collectors going crazy for this figure when it was first released in 2017. At that time it was pretty hard to find and people were paying top dollar for it on auction sites like ebay. Even now, I can't find one online for less than $16. I know that's not a crazy amount of money, but it just makes me appreciate the value we got in this $8 box of green machine goodness.
This message was printed on the inside cover of the box and it makes me sad. This was a fun TMNT promotion and as the saying goes, all good things must come to an end. I just wish this lasted just a little bit longer. I was hoping to save enough points to get their Rewards Package #3 that consisted of a set of 4 classic 1992 "Secret of the Ooze" movie action figures featuring authentic accessories and personalized sewer lid name base plates. Maybe the next reboot of Turtles will resurrect this once great program. Thank you Playmates!

  1. Damn,that's pretty cool ,man!Yeah I can remember people making a big fuss over that Muckman figure.It's great that you can enjoy this with your kids ,too.

    1. I'm glad that they enjoy the TMNT almost as much as I do. Spent part of the weekend playing and beating the TMNT arcade game and Turtles in time with all 3 kids. So cool that they made that cabinet 4 players!
