The McDonald's Happy Meal website is currently showing the above TMNT toys as being next on the schedule for Happy Meal toys. This makes the TMNT the scheduled January "boy" toy, although they will likely start appearing in restaurants slightly earlier than that.

TMNT Float Ready for Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade

Tomorrow is Thanksgiving in the good ol' U.S. of A., and with it comes the tradition of the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. As first announced last month, the TMNT will be riding in style down the parade route on a brand new float! The finished float is pictured above, and some in-progress pics are below.

The parade airs tomorrow morning on NBC at 9am in all time zones.

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone! And I'll try to have a video clip of the float available before the end of tomorrow.

First Look at 2013 TMNT Toys from Playmates

Toy News International has posted a sneak peek of some images of new TMNT action figures and toys we can expect to see for sale next year from Playmates Toys.

The new assortment features the four Turtles in some sort of stupid outfits, Baxter Stockman, Snakeweed, some new vehicles, a pizza box that unfolds to reveal a playset, deluxe "Flinger" Turtles, and a few other things.

Frankly, I find myself extremely disappointed with what we see here. Playmates actually went to the trouble of making new Turtles sculpts that more closely reflect the designs of the series, and they still covered them in stupid costumes. Really, Playmates? Have all the complaints about this tired and outdated strategy of yours really fallen on deaf ears? How far are we from the return of Music Turtles?

The new sculpts are actually quite adorable. I would love to buy and display them! BUT I REFUSE TO BUY TURTLES IN STUPID THEME COSTUMES. These new Turtles should just have their traditional gear. Those figures would be awesome.

Ugh. I might buy the baby turtles, but otherwise I'll be spending my money next year actually learning karate.
