TMNT Collecting History: The Recalled Vintage TMNT Puzzle





There are a lot of incidences of artist taking inappropriate liberties back in the late 80s and early 90s with Disney films...well, that happened here and there on retail products too.  This Ninja Turtles puzzle includes some...interesting graphitti in the alleyway that is clearly inappropriate for the intended audience.  





The scarcity and oddity of this puzzle makes it in high demand for Ninja Turtles collectors today, fetching a price between $60-$80 on average.

TMNT Classics Toyline Is Cancelled!...For Now


A report was going around the net the other day, started by Pixel Dan, that the Shredder and Krang from the Playmates Toys TMNT Classics line had been scrapped.  To verify, I went right to the source and got in touch with a contact at Playmates Toys and indeed not only are those two villains off the table, the entire line is on hold for now.  They are focusing on the other Ninja Turtles toylines right now, but they did make it clear that down the road the Classics line could be rotated back in, so keep your fingers crossed fans!

TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES’ DYNAMIC DUO BEBOP
AND ROCKSTEADY LAUNCH EXCLUSIVELY AT WALMART
 
Playmates Toys to Introduce Bebop and Rocksteady Action Figures, Inspired by
Nickelodeon TV Series
 
El Segundo, CA (November 11, 2014) – Nickelodeon and Playmates Toys, the companies behind the hit TV show and number-one-selling action-figure brand, Teenage Mutant Ninjas Turtles, today announced the launch of its Bebop and Rocksteady action figures available mid-November exclusively at Walmart. The villainous duo will then make their much-anticipated return to TV this January as part of the current third season of Nickelodeon’s CG-animated Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series.
 
“Partners in crime Bebop and Rocksteady have been fan favorites since the original animated series debuted in the 1980s,” said Karl Aaronian, Senior Vice President of Marketing, Playmates Toys.  “We’re thrilled to have had the opportunity to update the characters for a whole new generation of kids and original Turtles fans to enjoy.”
 
“Fans old and new alike have been waiting for these two great villains to make their big return, and the time has finally come,” said Manuel Torres, Senior Vice President, Global Toys and Publishing, Nickelodeon. “Turtles is having such incredible success on TV, in toys and across movie theaters worldwide, and adding Bebop and Rocksteady to the mix will just ratchet up the energy even higher.”
 
The highly detailed Bebop and Rocksteady action figures stand 5” tall, are fully articulated and uniquely sculpted to capture the personalities of this perennially popular duo. Each figure is equipped with unique accessories and is compatible with most of the vehicles and playsets in the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles toy line. Bebop, a pig-headed mutant, features a bright purple Mohawk, X-ray glasses and comes ready to battle with his weapon accessories.  Rocksteady, a mutated rock-headed Rhino and the brains behind the duo, is ready to hunt down the Turtles with his hammer-and-sickle weapon accessories.
