NECA Reveals Packaging For TMNT Target Two-Packs – Toy Fair 2019

Toy Fair is just ONE day away, but that hasn’t stopped companies from doing big reveals less than 24 hours away from the event. Case in point, NECA just revealed the look of their Target exclusive two-packs, featuring the cartoon versions of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

These figures were previously all released in an epic eight-pack from SDCC 2017 (which we reviewed, and you can check out at this link here). This is the first time they are being released outside of that, so if you missed out on these the first time, don’t sleep on them again.

All images via The Fwoosh, who have many more great photos of the figures loose as well as the backs and sides of the boxes:

The four two packs each include one of the four Ninja Turtles, one villain figure, and a bunch of accessories. They will be available only in US Target stores, with a MSRP of $50.00 each.

The only difference between the SDCC 2017 release of these figures and the re-release here (outside of packaging and cost), is that these sets will not include the larger piece of pizza or pizza box from the original set.

Other than that, the figures themselves are completely identical to the product from 2017.

The TMNT two-packs are expected to arrive in stores late February/ early March. In other words, way sooner than expected!

Hopefully, Target handles distribution of these figures better than Gamestop has done with their TMNT 1990 movie figures. I am hoping the slightly higher price point scares off scalpers from going too hard. My main concern about finding these is just whether or not stores will know to have enough stock, especially since this is a two-pack, meaning it will take up more shelf space. That could be it’s undoing, so Turtle fans/ toy collectors will need to make a real show of force to Target and let them know we want more stuff like this in their aisles.

Randy Falk from NECA spoke with The Fwoosh, and added that if these did well, there was a strong chance the line could expand to feature more characters. I think it’s about time we get a NECA April O’ Neil! What do you think?

There have been a lot of reveals leading up to NY Toy Fair. Some of the highlights so far have included Hasbro teasing us with a first glimpse of their new Overwatch figuresDiamond Select purchasing Gentle GiantMcFarlane Toys picking up the DC Comics License, Hasbro’s “Star Wars: Galaxy of Adventures” figures,  Mezco’s new One:12 Captain Marvel figureMego announced new 14″ Star Trek figures, and a new line based on characters from Stan Lee’s vault, and Neca debuted a great looking Shredder and Karate Kid set.

Stay tuned this weekend as our exclusive NY Toy Fair 2019 coverage begins on Saturday!

TMNT and Batman Team Up For New Animated Movie Crossover

Cowabunga! Looks like The Caped Crusader and four heroes in half-shells will be joining forces for a brand new animated movie coming out this Spring.

Syfy broke the news earlier today, and gave us this description of the plot for this epic meet-up between Batman and The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles:

Based on the Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles comics miniseries by James Tynion IV and Freddie Williams II, the film will see the turtles meeting Batman via a transdimensional encounter, and feature our heroes teaming up to face Batman’s deadly rogues gallery. 

This is the first time these worlds have collided in animation, but the two have met before in that aforementioned crossover comic between IDW and DC Comics from 2015.

The film’s voice cast features Troy Baker (The Last of UsBatman: Arkham Origins) as both Batman and The Joker (making him the first actor to ever take on both roles in one project), Darren Criss (the Emmy winning star of The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story) as Raphael, Kyle Mooney (Saturday Night Live) as Michelangelo, Baron Vaughn (Grace and Frankie) as Donatello, Eric Bauza (The Woody Woodpecker Show) as Leonardo, Rachel Bloom (Crazy Ex-Girlfriend) as Batgirl, Tom Kenny (Spongebob Squarepants) as The Penguin, John DiMaggio (Adventure Time) as Mr. Freeze, Tara Strong (The Powerpuff Girls) as both Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy, Carlos Alazraqui (Reno 911!) as Bane, and Cas Anvar (The Expanse) as Ra’s al Ghul. 

Knowing the cast does give us a bit more info about plot details, especially since we have five villains for the heroic group to deal with. How they all tie together remains to be seen.

Batman vs. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles will arrive on 4K, Blu-ray, and Digital late this spring.

NECA Debuts New Shredder Action Figure Ahead of NY Toy Fair 2019

With NY Toy Fair looming on the horizon, some companies have already begun making big reveals. Mezco has been doing it for the past few weeks, teasing a new Jack Torrance Living Dead Doll and a new One:12 Captain Marvel figure based on Brie Larson’s look in the new movie.

NECA has now joined the reveals, debuting on their Facebook a long-anticipated and equally long teased 18-inch Shredder action figure! Based on his look in the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie from 1990, this figure was definitely worth the wait!

Check out the photo gallery below:

Not only does Shredder come with a variety of weapons and different removable hands, his face mask is also removable, giving us a glimpse of the man under the metal mask. Plus, his cape is removable, and can I just say – that cape always bothered me. It just looked like a trash bag hanging off his shoulders. Definitely looks much better here.

The big question is will The Shredder and the movie-style Foot Clan ninja join their 7″ brethren and be made into smaller action figures too? One can only hope, and seeing as how the TMNT movie figures are hitting mainstream stores like Gamestop, perhaps that’s a positive step forward in making these less exclusive [to conventions] and more accessible to everyone.

SDCC 2018: IDW announces new TMNT comic, “Shredder in Hell”

IDW is proud to announce that acclaimed TMNT artist Mateus Santolouco will both write and draw Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder in Hell, a five-issue miniseries slated to debut in early 2019 that serves as a sequel to the fan-favorite Secret History of the Foot Clan storyline.

Shredder in Hell, the latest chapter in IDW’s groundbreaking TMNT saga, sinks into the nightmarish pits of the afterlife, where the infamous leader of the Foot Clan struggles to survive. In the process, Shredder discovers his true purpose… as well as the origins of the great beings responsible for both destruction and creation in his world.

Mateus Santolouco was born in 1979 in Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil. Launching his creative career in advertising, he shifted his attention to comic books in 2006. In addition to his extensive contributions to the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles franchise at IDW Publishing, he has worked on such comic book projects as Rampaging Wolverine, Dial H, Wonderlost, 24Seven, Dark Reign: Lethal Legion, Two Guns, and Fall of Cthulhu.

“I’m very humble and thankful to help expand the rich universe of TMNT, adding new layers to the Turtles’ main villain,” says Santolouco. “We’re not only revealing Shredder’s role in a conspiracy of divine proportions, but we’ll have a better understanding of his fears and ambitions. Oroku Saki is more human than ever… and this will only make him an even stronger force for the TMNT to face.”

Group Editor Bobby Curnow says, “Shredder in Hell is in many ways a spiritual sequel to the beloved Secret History of the Foot Clan. There’s one crucial difference: whereas before Mateus was just coming into his own as a creator, he is now, five years later, working at a master class level. The art he is producing is unreal, and the story is surprisingly deep and reaches to the core of IDW’s TMNT universe.”

For information on how to secure copies of the Shredder in Hell comic book miniseries, contact your local comic shop or visit www.comicshoplocator.com to find a store near you.
