NECA TMNT Figures Coming To International Stores Near You

Ninja Turtles fans around the world are about to be in for a big treat, thanks to one of our favorite toymakers, NECA!

Over on their Facebook page, NECA posted the following image, which seems to offer a big hint of something for a group of very patient fans:

The image is a turtleshell covered in stickers from various countries, meaning the TMNT figures may finally get a long awaited international release.

The countries listed include Poland, the UK, Japan, Italy, Brazil, Canada, Germany, France, and Ireland.

Back during Toy Fair, we spoke with one of their reps about this as a fan in Australia asked about it. At that time, it was something they said they were working on, and it seems that NECA came through in a big way.

According to Toy Ark, so far it seems it’s the cartoon versions of the Turtles, specifically the two-packs, but perhaps the movie turtles will soon join them. We will update this post once we have more info about additional lines headed across the globe.

“Batman VS TMNT” Gets A Trailer

Awhile back, we learned of a cartooncrossover between The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and (who knew) Batman. Today, we have our first look at the movie, and all we can say is WOW.

Entertainment Weekly got the scoop on this one, giving us a video that gives us goosebumps every time we watch it.

And here is a bootleg trailer from Youtube that is easier to watch (until the official one is uploaded to that site):

Not only are we getting the ninja turtles and batman together, but we are also getting Batgirl and Damian, plus their rogues gallery of – to name a few – Ras Al Ghul, Harley Quinn, Bane, Me Freeze, Penguin, and The Joker. On top of that, OH HAI SHREDDER!

By the way, the cast for this movie is just as INSANE as this crossover!

Emmy winner Darren Criss (The Assassination of Gianni Versace) leads the voice cast behind the Turtles as Raphael, accompanied by Saturday Night Live‘s Kyle Mooney as Michelangelo, Grace & Frankie‘s Baron Vaughn as Donatello, and The Woody Woodpecker Show‘s Eric Bauza as Leonardo.

John DiMaggio (Adventure Time) voices Mr. Freeze, Tara Strong (Teen Titans Go!) voices both Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy, Tom Kenny (SpongeBob SquarePants) voices Penguin, Carlos Alazraqui (Reno 911!) voices Bane, Cas Anvar (The Expanse) voices Ra’s al Ghul, Keith Ferguson (Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends) voices Baxter Stockman and Two-Face, Andrew Kishino (The Lion Guard) voices Shredder, and Meskimen voices another character with Scarecrow.

“Batman VS Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” will be released through Warner Bros. Home Entertainment on Digital and on 4K Ultra HD Combo Pack and Blu-ray Combo Pack this spring.

The film will have its world premiere at WonderCon Anaheim 2019 on March 31, 2019.

NY Toy Fair 2019 Review

We were at NY Toy Fair 2019, and saw a ton of things. Here is our review and discussion of some of the things we saw, what we liked, what we didn’t like, best surprises and biggest disappointments!

Check out the video below:

Some of the highlights include our looks at booths from NECA, Super7, Mezco, McFarlane Toys, Diamond Select, DC Collectibles, Playmobil, and more. Plus, discussion on what happened to action figures for girls, the retro gaming arcade craze with a look at four different booths making them, and some of our favorite indy booths.

Quick note: We had the wrong price for the Super Impulse Micro Arcade. We said it would be $11 but that is the wholesale price – retail will be $19.99 – 24.99.

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.
