"TMNT: Out of the Shadows" WonderCon Panel

At WonderCon this past weekend, Paramount hosted a panel feature new footage from the upcoming movie, TMNT: Out of the Shadows, as well as stars Megan Fox and Stephen Amell, and producers Andrew Form and Brad Fuller.

After the panel, Fox, Amell, Form, and Fuller participated in a signing on the exhibit hall floor at the Paramount booth, which was fully decked out in Turtles sewer style.

While footage from the panel isn't available, here is a pretty good summary of what went down:

At WonderCon this past weekend, new toys from the upcoming line of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows tie-in toys from Playmates were on display.

And also as of this past weekend, the same toys are starting to be found out in the wild. Brandon T. wrote in letting us know that he found the whole lot at a Toys R Us in Wilmington, NC.

Here's a few pics of what he picked up:

Guide to WonderCon 2012

WonderCon, the little sister convention to Comic-Con International, is being held this weekend, March 16-18, at the Anaheim Convention Center. This is a (supposedly) temporary relocation from the usual digs at the Moscone Center in San Francisco. (I sure hope so!)

The only TMNT-related information I have for the convention comes from IDW:

March 17, 12:00-3:00pm - On Saturday, the IDW booth will be hosting a signing with TMNT co-creator Kevin Eastman.

All weekend - The IDW booth will be selling the limited edition black & white variant cover of TMNT: The Ultimate Edition, Vol. 1.

I was hoping to make it to this even though it's not in my backyard this year, but things didn't work out and then something else came up. Happy conventioning to anyone who is going!
