Packaged 2014 Ninja Turtles Movie Figures Revealed



After getting various levels of reveals over the last few months, we finally have some clear pictures of the upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie figures in their retail packages. Interestingly, these figures still have the "Ninja Turtles" title, while the movie has been officially changed to "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles."

Check out these and close-ups of other figures at ActionFigureFury.com.

TMNT 2014 Movie Action Figures Revealed!




Here they are, finally, with no funny business or bad angles - the upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie action figures. The nine figures of wave one consist of the four Turtles, Splinter, Shredder, April O'Neil, a Foot Soldier, and Undercover Raph. Of particular note is Splinter, as this is the first good look we've had of his character design.

Unfortunately, this compilation doesn't provide a very accurate look at the scale of the figures, although they look to all be about the same size. If this is the case, it won't be very true to the movie, which, as we've seen in the trailers, features a very large size difference between the Turtles and April. Although we haven't seen a clear shot of Splinter in the trailers, he is expected to be quite small, given that he is played by actor Danny Woodburn.

Playmates Debuts "Half Shell Heroes" TMNT Toys at Toy Fair




If you were disappointed with the 1990 movie Turtles from yesterday, this might make you feel a bit better. Playmates is also revealing at Toy Fair a brand new line of stylized figures that are targeted at a younger market than the usual 7+ that the standard toys based on the Nickelodeon toys are targeted for.


The main assortment of toys in this line will have 2" figures, plus vehicles and playsets. These are similar in concept to the Mini Mutants line Playmates briefly introduced following the 2007 animated movie.


Also included in this line are larger 6" talking figures.

These figures are currently scheduled to start shipping in June. Get more pictures over at ToyArk.com.

Playmates 1990 TMNT Movie Classic Figures



Last year at Comic-Con, Playmates impressed the crowd with a slide showcasing an upcoming line of classic figures based on the first TMNT movie. Now at Toy Fair we're getting a better look at all four Turtles in this line.

Unfortunately, the mass production version of these figures seem to have lost a lot of the awe that the prototype shown in the early pictures elicited. These figures are in the same 6" scale as the classic cartoon Turtles from Playmates and are expected to hit shelves in the Fall.




Note to Playmates: Movie Mike never had chucks with chains.

You can get more photos of these figures over at ToyArk.com.

There is a lot more news coming out of Toy Fair, but my current schedule is probably only going to let me update you with one piece a day. If you haven't already hunted down everything else, just hang tight and you can look forward to Turtle tie bits all week!

A Real Look at the 2014 TMNT Movie Toys





And here it is - finally, our first real picture of the 2014 "Ninja Turtles" movie toys! Here we see Raphael, Donatello, and Michelangelo. This picture is via Stoer Magazine at the Nuremberg Toy Fair. These are apparently the 12" scale figures.

An Almost Look at "Ninja Turtles" Movie Action Figures




Happy New Year! 2014 has arrived, and it's looking to be a big year for the TMNT. The biggest event, of course, will be the release of the new live action movie, currently scheduled for August 8 (still my birthday). Although we have yet to be shown what the Turtles will look like in their CGI forms, toys for the movie have been in development for awhile. And now is beginning the season of Toy Fair season.

At one such Toy Fair in Russia, some lucky individuals were able to get a glimpse at these new figures. Unfortunately, pictures were not allowed. However, one person put together a fairly detailed report of what he saw.

Read the full report.

Amongst the figures on display were the four Turtles, Splinter, April, Shredder, and a Foot Soldier.

The Turtles are noted to each have different physiques and different clothing. The designs are described as being "traditional," whatever that might mean.

Splinter has more of a "Fu Manchu" vibe going on.

April is dressed like we saw Megan Fox dressed in the many set pictures taken during filming last summer. However, the figure apparently doesn't look much like her.

Shredder is described has having an abundance of pointy edges poking out of him everywhere.

The Foot Soldiers mimic the guys in drab that were also seen on set.

Again, you'll want to read the full report to get the best feel. More toy shows will be taking place in the next couple of months, including Toy Fair in New York. If we don't see the action figures ourselves sooner, we definitely will then.

Like all other TMNT action figures ever, these are being made by Playmates Toys.

TMNT McDonald's Happy Meal Promotion Begins Today




McDonald's is today launching a new Happy Meal promotion featuring TMNT toys inspired by the Nickelodeon CGI series. The eight new toys are all skateboard inspired. Four of them feature each of the Turtles on a skateboard, while the other four are finger boards that include a ramp. The promotion should run for approximately a month, although restaurants can run out of toys sooner than that.

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.

SDCC 2013: Playmates Unproduced Concept Sketches



As part of their panel at Comic-Con this year, Playmates presented some slides of concept sketches for toys that never made it into production. Enjoy this glimpse of what might have been!

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.
