New TMNT Fan Club Website Now Live




Nickelodeon yesterday launched a new TMNT Fan Club website. However, users of the old Turtles vs. Foot website will recognize it as being more or less the same thing. Fans who sign up have the opportunity to enter contests to win prizes by sharing TMNT posts on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.

Currently, fans can enter to win Bebop and Rocksteady production action figures, a signed Nickelodeon season 2 script, and an Xbox 360.

TMNT Named as 2013 National Toy Hall of Fame Finalist



The National Toy Hall of Fame has announced the 12 finalists, including the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, to be inducted into its class of 2013.
The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles comic book was originally self-published by two struggling artists to satirize comic book heroes and action figures in the early 1980s. However the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles found themselves transformed into comic book and play icons, transmedia pioneers, and an enduring popular cultural sensation known as “Turtlemania”—generating toys, television shows, movies, video games, and merchandise over the past 25 years.
The winners are being chosen in part through an online poll. Winners will be announced Thursday, November 7, 2013.

The other finalists are Bubbles, Chess, Clue, Fisher-Price Little People, Little Green Army Men, Magic 8 Ball, My Little Pony, Nerf Toys, Pac-Man, Rubber Duck, and Scooter.
