So I spotted this at a Toys “R” Us yesterday. They had just finished restocking the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Retro Figures. These are the reissues of the 80’s toys, which Playmates released last year, and had disappeared from shelves (for the most part) since Christmas.
After spotting this, I popped over to another nearby TRU and saw they had them as well. The assortment, though, appears to be a bit different. Both stores were only stocking the four Ninja Turtles. Missing in the wave were Shredder and Splinter, which were part of the release last year. UPDATE: According to foru member Phantomcrow, Krang and a Foot Soldier are part of this release. These were marked at $8.99 each.
The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Classic Collection kicked off to a roaring start in 2012 with the release of the Classic Turtles upgraded toy wise for the modern era. We got really well done, large, highly poseable figures to match what’s been done with other 80s properties during their new millennium rebirth. In 2013, Playmates continued the line with the addition of Bebop and Rock Steady. All of them to that point were fantastic new versions of the characters.
It’s now 2014, and Playmates is rolling out Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Movie Editions. Using the first wave Turtles as a base, they’ve remolded and repainted the four, giving them new heads in the process. This was a fan request, the people wanted it, but it didn’t quite turn out as expected. Read on to check out our quick thoughts, and over 60 images of the Ninja Turtles Movie Classics Collection figures!
