NECA Debuts 1/4 Scale 1990 Movie Donatello Action Figure at Toy Fair



If the recently revealed statues from Prime 1 Studios don't fit your budget (or your display space), it seems like NECA has a "compromise" to offer you. Depending on your collecting habits, it might not even be much of a compromise.



The first of a planned series of four, NECA's 1990 movie-style Donatello stands approximately 16.5" and features 30 points of articulation, including double knee joints. With an incredibly detailed sculpt, he comes with bo staff accessory and interchangeable hands.


Watch for Donatello to hit specialty toy retailers around June for about $100. The remaining Turtles should then be released one a quarter.

Prime 1 Studio Debuts 1990 TMNT Movie Statues at Tokyo Wonder Festival




Hey, everyone! Forgive me for a bunch of delayed reporting that is going to be coming your way in upcoming days. I took a little vacation and am now just getting back into the swing of things. And with Toy Fair happening in New York, plus other events, there's quite a bit of news to share!

Let's start with these pretty impressive 1/4 scale statues from Prime 1 Studio, which were on display recently in Tokyo at Wonder Festival. Of course, the really exciting thing about these is that they're based on the 1990 movie costumes by Jim Henson.



Prime 1 Studio has previously offered 1/4 scale statues of the 2014 movie Turtles, at a MSRP of $699-$749. These new statues will most likely be similarly priced, so they are definitely an investment. But if you are looking to add these to your collection, watch for them later this year from retailers such as Sideshow Collectibles.

First Look at "Out of the Shadows" Toys Reveals Kraang and the Technodrome




Well, it's 2016 and we're officially six months away from the next TMNT movie. "Out of the Shadows." Although we saw the first teaser trailer last month, with Toy Fair just around the corner, it's time for us to start getting yet more looks at what we can expect.

In an interview released just yesterday by Rolling Stone magazine, Michael Bay confirmed the presence of Krang in the movie. Now, Technodrome forum user DVD is giving us a look at Krang (actually, "Kraang") in toy form.



This page from an insert booklet shows what appears to be the first wave of action figures, including Shredder, Bebop, Rocksteady, and Kraang. Whew, that's a lot of characters jammed into this movie. But wait, there's more!


That's right! We're getting the Technodrome! And it wouldn't be a TMNT toy line without motorcycles.


Bebop's and Rocksteady's bikes are actually in the movie; not sure if the Turtles will also have them. But we do know from the trailer that the Turtles have a "Tartaruga Brothers" converted garbage truck.


And, of course, it also gets a toy.


Deluxe figures, complete with kung fu action.


And finally, we've got 11" figures. But this is only the beginning of what's sure to be a busy year!

"TMNT: Out of the Shadows" Trailer Hits the Web



It's here! The first trailer for "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows" is now available in full HD glory!

New Images from "TMNT: Out of the Shadows"



Yesterday, a short teaser video promised that we'd get the first TMNT 2 trailer today. But after the full two-and-a-half-minute trailer managed to leak, Paramount went to work sending out promotional images as well as the trailer (check the top post for that!).

The biggest news from this reveal is the title "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows," which is a change from the working title "Half Shell."

Promotional images show us the four Turtles (with new garb and gear), April O'Neil (Megan Fox) with Casey Jones (Stephen Amell), and Bebop (Gary Anthony Williams) and Rocksteady (Stephen “Sheamus” Farrelly).




Here are a bunch of marketing words:
“TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES: OUT OF THE SHADOWS” is the sequel to the 2014 hit film “TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES.” The film is based on the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles characters created by Peter Laird and Kevin Eastman and is directed by David Green (“EARTH TO ECHO”). Michael Bay (the “TRANSFORMERS franchise) returns to produce alongside his Platinum Dunes partners Brad Fuller and Andrew Form (“ TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES”), with Galen Walker and Scott Mednick (“TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES”) also producing. 
Also returning for the sequel is Megan Fox (“TRANSFORMERS”) as April O’Neil, Will Arnett (“Arrested Development”) as Vernon Fenwick and the Turtles: Alan Ritchson as Raphael, Noel Fisher as Michelangelo, Pete Ploszek at Leonardo, and Jeremy Howard as Donatello. Rounding out the cast is Stephen Amell (“Arrow,”) as Casey Jones, Tyler Perry ("GONE GIRL", the "MADEA" franchise) as Baxter Stockman, Academy Award nominated actress Laura Linney (“The Big C”, “LOVE ACTUALLY”) as Chief Rebecca Vincent, Brian Tee (“JURASSIC WORLD”) as Shredder, WWE World Heavy Weight Champion Stephen “Sheamus” Farrelly as Rocksteady and Gary Anthony Williams (“THE INTERNSHIP”) as Bebop.
And some Wanted posters featuring Bebop and Rocksteady.

"Ninja Turtles 2" Set Pictures Reveal Costumes and Cast



Shortly after the announcement that Stephen Amell will be playing the role of Casey Jones in the TMNT movie sequel, Half Shell, amateur set pictures popped up online of Amell filming in his Casey Jones costume. This prompted Paramount/Nickelodeon to release an official picture of Amell.


You have to do a bit of squinting, but you can read the name "EASTMAN" on the hockey stick he's holding.

Also spotted recently was the one-and-only Judith Hoag, shooting street scenes with Megan Fox (April O'Neil) and Will Arnett (Vern Fenwick). Of course, Hoag was the original April O'Neil in the first TMNT movie from 1990. Although she declined working in the sequels to that film, she remains for many the definitive April O'Neil. While her role in the new movie isn't known, it is definitely a nice acknowledgment to the past.
