Recap / Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2012 S 4 E 4 The Outlaw Armaggon

Go To

When Lord Dregg hires a bounty hunter to destroy the turtles, the team flees to an abandoned space station!

  • Bait-and-Switch Boss: You think Armaggon would have been the main focus of this ep. Well he was till he reactivated the factory...
  • Disproportionate Retribution: Professor Honeycutt turning into a robot was due to the Triceratons attempting to kill him after he refused to work for them and when they found out he's able to live on as a robot, they labeled him "The Fugitoid". Compared to the 2003 version where Blanque had some authority over Honeycutt since he provided most of the money for his scientific achievements.
