"Ninja Turtles" Release Date Moved to August 8, 2014




Deadline.com reports that the release date for next year's "Ninja Turtles" movie has been moved back from June 14, 2014, to August 8, 2014. The given likely reason is to put more space between it and Transformers 4, another Paramount production, which is slated for June 27, 2014.
Both of these have involved campaigns and a big merchandising component, and it was thought the studio would be better off spacing the two toy-tied films further apart than the 19 days it was looking at in the original scheduling configuration. Of course, this puts TMNT just one week away from Marvel Studio’s next superhero franchise launch Guardians Of The Galaxy, which opens August 1.
And yes, if you were paying attention last week, you'll recall that August 8 is my birthday! Woohoo!

Kevin Eastman to Have Cameo in "Ninja Turtles" Film



TMNT co-creator Kevin Eastman last week posted to Facebook the news that he was in New York to shoot a cameo in the new "Ninja Turtles" movie coming out next year. No details on what the role might be, but he also shared this photo of his fiancé, Courtney, on set.
A sticker on the back of the truck in the photo says, "Give Blood, Play Hockey." Casey's? It also has New Jersey plates. But I might just be looking for something where there's nothing.

There has been no word on whether or not co-creator Peter Laird will also have a cameo.

SDCC 2013: Playmates Bebop and Rocksteady Classics Figures




Second to the 1990 movie classics figures, the most-exciting reveal Playmates had at their panel were these Bebop and Rocksteady figures, which will also be part of the "Classics" line. However, they did let us know that Splinter and Shredder would eventually also be added to this series.

SDCC 2013: Playmates 1990 TMNT Movie Classics Figures




Playmates' Comic-Con panel didn't have much excitement to share. However, the best thing they showed was truly impressive. As part of their larger, more-detailed "Classics" line, Playmates will next year be releasing figures based on the Turtles as we saw them in the 1990. These are the Turtles as realized by Jim Henson's Creature Shop. Despite advancements in movie effects in the 20+ years since, these Turtles for many are still the definitive movie Turtles.

Unfortunately, all they had for us was this one slide. And despite the text at the bottom saying it was on display at the Diamond booth, it wasn't. However, Toy News International has the hi-res versions of the pictures shown in the slide.

Two are below; check out the rest.
