I have been a TMNT fan all my life, but with this new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2014 movie coming out in August, it almost makes me wish I wasn’t a fan at all. Why? After seeing all of the trailers, concept art, leaked photos, and now the toys, what is there to actually love about TMNT?
The new designs for the Turtles are far less than awesome, actually they are kind of creepy.They just aren’t TMNT anymore, but something bizarre. Maybe these new Playmates Toys TMNT 2014 movie action figures will convince haters like me to actually like the new designs?
Flicker user, the_real_slash, was able to get his hands on the figures early, which gives us a much better look at what Playmates Toys is going to be producing for the movie. We have already known about the Basic Figures which will feature Leonardo, Michelangelo, Donatello, Raphael, Street Disguise Raphael, April, Splinter, Shredder, and the Foot Soldier; Now we possibly have a look at everything that will be at retail.
These new images give us a look at Evolution Figure Packs, which will feature 3 figures, a turtle, a teen Turtle, and then the Ninja Turtle action figure. They also show the 11-inch figures, the Turtle Assault Van, Role-Play items, and the Deluxe Action Figures.
Now after seeing two fans with the figures in hand, it appears that April O’Neil and Street Disguise Raphael are going to be shipping later on in the line. Though, until they actually hit retail in August, who knows? For more images please view the_real_slash’s profile on Flickr. If you want to be one of the first people to have the Playmates Toys Ninja Turtles movie action figures in your collection, there are several listed on eBay for half-decent prices.
