Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Classics Video

MTV Geek has posted videos from their meeting with Playmates Toys at the Toy Fair event. This video focuses on the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Classics line.

As you see in the video, there is a lot riding on the Classics line. How well Classics does determines how much more product we see. As stated if Classics sells well they can expand the line to include other characters or even other eras of TMNT including the classic comics. “Sewer heads” get ready!

There are 3 more videos related to new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle product to check out which gives a look at more action figures, vehicles, playsets, packaging, and even some info like the fact that Jason Biggs will be voicing Leonardo: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles New Action Figures, Vehicles and Playsets, Roleplay sets, and Showcase setup.

    Wow. Not too bad. That turtle lair/playset thing looks massive. I'll check them out once they hit.

    These happy me! I love the new designs... sort of a more cartoony/cutesy version of Eastman & Laird's original art.
    The detail on them is amazing, yet simple at the same time. I also really like how they did the knee joints. Too bad they couldn't work the same magic on the elbows.

    My personal hopes are that these are 3"-4" in scale, unlike the last go at TMNT toys.

    These look awesome! Really hope the articulation's good on 'em. That Turtle lair is gonna cost a LOT though...

    Want the vehicles! Here's hoping they do a Turtle Blimp too.

    Same here. These look fantastic. I'd love to mix them in with my X-Men.

    I honestly didn't even know there was a new show in the works. The designs of the turtles themselves looks really good, as does the party van.

    I'll most likely at least get the Donatello figure, but depending on the price of them, I might go ahead and get the whole team.

    If the gimmicky figures are cheap enough I might get one or two for my nephew, but barring that they're easy passes.

    Should be interesting to see how Shredder looks. The foot ninja on the bike isn't bad. Hopefully the turtles aren't the only one's given articulated figures. Would be nice to have a Shredder and a couple foot ninjas to go with them.

    Edit: Just noticed Shredder in the picture of the lair. Looks like his design is pretty good too. Also, looked up some info on the show...I'll give it a chance, but I doubt I'll enjoy it.

    Oh man. I didn't want to buy ANOTHER toy line. But some of those look pretty nice, especially considering it's Playmates putting them out.

    I am digging them. A nice 4 set will do the shelves well I think.

    the article states the basic figures (ones with no pupils) are 4.25 to 4.75" in scale.
    the others (with poorer accessories) are deluxe with sounds and are slightly larger.


    I never got a chance to get the NECA turtles back ijn '70 or '08 (forget exactly when they were out) -- and now they're even further beyond my reach -- but I would get this team, expecting it to be around the $10 a figure range.

    I have mixed feelings about these. The shellraiser is indeed awesome, but I'm going back forth on the figures. They have good detail, their weapons look much better, but they look short and stocky. Maybe I'll come around once I see in package pics.

  10. Joe Moore's Avatar Joe Moore says

    Fixed the Sewer Playset image. Don't know why it was so bright.

  11. MegaPrime33's Avatar MegaPrime33 says

    OMG the classics line look so much better to me. I'm more of a classics guy anyway. Definitely will be picking them up.

    And if you look at the playset pic, you can see shredder, splinter, and I guess April is going to be a 12 year old girl. I hope Casey is either not in this, or the appropriate age, otherwise that will be weird.

    I think I see Krang at the very top of the playset as well

    I'll definitely be getting a Classic Donatello, though I'm not sure I'll get the others tbh. Should definitely be fun with all that articulation. Though I'm not sure I like the inclusion of the mid-torso joint. Hopefully it's better than what Hasbro usually uses for their ball-jointed mid-torso joints.

    Cool, I may get these as well just the 4 main turtles though, and maybe Splinter and April O'Neil...but that's it I swear! Really brings back childhood memories!!

    Thank God, there's not a whole lot of characters for this line:P Would be cool if they're close enough to the same size as the MU ones.

  18. Deefuzz's Avatar Deefuzz says

    I totally missed the classics stuff earlier. Thanks for catching that!

    Honestly like the regular action figures from the main line better. I never thought I would say that, but the classics ones just look...off to me for some reason. Hopefully they look better in person.

    Sweet! Now I can get my hands on a definitive set of Turtles.
