If you weren’t at Yestercades this past weekend for NECA’s fan event, you missed a good time. The event was well done in a nostalgic environment that would make any toy nerd happy. NECA had a few recent and upcoming releases on display, as well as a few new reveals. I was able to take a few photos but not as many as I would have liked. I was more focused on talking to the NECA gang and meeting some of the other NECA enthusiasts. Being that I’m socially awkward, I don’t think I did a good job in that department. It was nice to finally put a few faces with the names though. (more…)
The turtles today are far different then the ones most of us grew up with. With another reboot arriving anyday now, the toys won’t be far behind. A lot of the new line from Playmates was revealed today and is currently up for preorder over at Entertainment Earth. (more…)
NECA fulled revealed their latest SDCC exclusive this morning. The 6-inch TMNT 1990 movie figures are joining their 18-inch counterparts. There aren’t many details as far as price and how many will be available. I am sure they will be available on their exclusives round up page soon. In the meantime check out the images they tweeted below.

UPDATE: Check out the full reveal here.
Today is World Turtle Day, and NECA has been tweeting hints and teases for some upcoming TMNT releases. The most notable would be the 7-inch scale figures based on the 1990 movie. This will probably be a SDCC exclusive judging by past TMNT NECA releases and the fact that Playmates holds the license for that scale. If you look close at the tweet below, you get look at a 7 Inch Scale 1990 TMNT Movie box set. The box looks like a giant VHS tape, the front with the classic movie poster, and you can see figures on the side of the box. Another give away this is a box set, it says “The Figures” instead of “The Movie” on the front.
NECA shared some photos of the packaging for their up coming TMNT Mutagen Canister Prop Replica. It is expected to hit shelves sometime around January but you can pre-order it now over at Entertainment Earth.
After wading in a puddle of radioactive waste, four radical reptiles were transformed into New York City’s greatest crime-fighting quartet! Now you can own a full-size replica of the Mutagen Canister that started it all, created from careful study and examination of the prop used in the 1990 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie. Press a button and green light glows through the crack in the side; it even comes with “ooze!” The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Movie Mutagen Canister Prop Replica measures approximately 13-inches long and uses button cell batteries, which come included.
