Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Toys at NY Toy Fair 2014 – TMNT – Playmates
Playmates gave us a tour of their exceptional booth at NY Toy Fair 2014, and they had a lot to show off, from figures to vehicles!
This year, the basic animated series line will get a ton of new figures including Mutagen Man, and my personal favorites – the turtles in their LARP outfits. We are also getting new 7″ Classic figures based on the 1990’s movie with super articulation. You can also look forward to plenty of new deluxe electronic figures, vehicles (including the classic Turtle Blimp in the modern style), and a new zip line for the Turtles lair – check out the video for more details and to see them in action.
I also got to see something that I could not take any photos of – the new Michael Bay TMNT movie figures. For those wondering how the turtles look, Bay has definitely had his hands on them (they all have nostrils, which is weird enough without the other stuff on them). The new movie line will feature a kid-friendly line in two scales, and will feature the fab four, along with Shredder, Splinter, April O’Neil played by Megan Fox, and the Foot Soldiers (who look like SWAT guys with clear plastic face masks and all use guns… because ninjas need guns). I don’t mind the appearance of the new turtles as much as others (blasphemy, I know), but that does not mean they look good. These are not my generations turtles, and I doubt they will do as well as the Bayformers movies, but at least the toys look good. Plus, the excitement of the movie means more classic merchandise, so take this small victory and enjoy it.
