To say the live action Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie is one of my all-time favorites is an understatement. By 1990 the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles were by far my favorite franchise and I was all about turtles at the time. I had a TMNT themed birthday party, nothing but turtle Christmas, and the movie was one of the few times I remember seeing my Dad in a movie theatre. But for whatever reason, I had a ton of cartoon based action figures but never bothered for the live action versions. Of course, that all changed a couple of years ago when I saw NECA was releasing a line of movie figures. Until recently, Playmates was the sole maker of TMNT figures. The only reason I think NECA (and others) got any sliver of the license is that fact that any TMNT figure they release is some sort of store or con exclusive. NECA always does their best to get things to as many people as possible. That said, some of these figures are harder to come by than others. What I have learned is patience is key.
It’s the summer of new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle figures. Playmates just revealed a new comic inspired Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Black and White Figure 4-Pack arriving at the end of the summer. The set, which will be a Walmart exclusive, features the four comic inspired Turtles released a few years back, just in black and white. The set will also include a reprint of TMNT #1, with a new cover by Kevin Eastman.
NECA granted turtle fans’ wishes today on World Turtle Day. They officially revealed their latest addition to their Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie line, “The Capture of Splinter”. (more…)
Currently up for pre-order at Entertainment Earth, NECA’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Movie Baby Turtles 1:4 Scale Action Figure 4-Pack is expected to hit shelves this March.
From the 1990 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie!
After wading in a puddle of radioactive waste, these radical reptiles are transformed into New York City’s greatest crime-fighting quartet! The Baby Turtles are still tiny but ready to train with their master Splinter. These detailed, posable figures stand 4” tall, making them perfectly in scale with NECA’s 1/4 scale TMNT action figure line, and they come with plenty of accessories.
Thefwoosh.com got the exclusive reveal of one of NECA’s SDCC exclusives. They are doing the turtles again this year and I think this set is better than last years. The set of eight cartoon-themed figures comes packaged in a beautifully illustrated, SDCC themed carrying case! What I also like is that limited numbers will be available to non attendees at at https://thenecastore.com in June! Be sure to follow NECA online on Twitter and Facebook for more details in the coming weeks. Start saving up, the set will run you $200. Thats a small price to pay for these great looking figures. You can check out more pictures in an awesome gallery over at thefwoosh.com. (more…)
