Foot Soldiers are all alike: speechless, robotic minions to Shredder, the evil Foot leader. Their mummified movements, turtle shell armor (made from unfortunate relatives of the Turtles) and radioactive eyes make these skeletal scumballs truly horrible additions to the Foot clan.
Many Foot soldiers have stumbled over the Ninja-trained Turtles and many have been destroyed. Still, they are formidable foes because of their sheer numbers. Their hi-tech weapons, like the shell-biter, can crush the Turtles' protective covering and get to the real meat.
- Foot Soldier was always issued with a hard head unlike most figures released during the first year.
- This figure was first released in the US in 1988 and the UK in 1990 and with reissues in 1990, 1992, 1994, and as part of the 25th anniversary and 2015 Classic Collection.
- The 1994 Robotic Foot Soldier was merely a metallic repaint of this figure.
- The Turtle Shell Biter accessory was recoloured for the Mutatin' Foot Soldier (1993 action figure).
- The Turtle Carver Knife was also included with Rocksteady (1988 action figure) and recoloured once in a blueish grey for the General Traag (1989 action figure) and again for the Night Ninja Rocksteady (1993 action figure) in a bright blue.
