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

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

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!
