Prepping for their upcoming cartoon on Nickelodeon, Playmates Toys has released information reguarding the line as well as official pictures of what’s coming to store shelves soon!

We have already reviewed figures from the standard and classics line, but below are pictures of them as well as SFX figures, the vehicles, and the GIGANTIC Sewer Lair set!

Basic Action Figures:  With more than 12 points of articulation, these

action figures are the most highly detailed and articulated Turtle figures

ever made!   Each turtle figure is uniquely sculpted, with heights ranging

from 4.25 inches to 4.75 inches, to capture the individual personalities of

the characters from the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles TV show. The line

includes the four main turtles, Leonardo, Raphael, Donatello and

Michelangelo, as well as their sensei, Splinter, and April O’ Neil, their

human connection to the surface.  Each Turtle is wearing his signature

bandana and comes packed with their two core Ninja weapons for hours of

Ninja playing excitement.  A bonus weapons accessory rack is also

included.  The Basic Figure line also features characters from The Evil

Foot Clan, including Shredder, The Kraang and a Foot Soldier.  Each

figure is compatible with the entire Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles line of

vehicles and playsets. (Ages 4+, $7.99 – $8.99 each, August 2012) 


Deluxe Power Sound FX Figures:  Able to deliver battle phrases with

awesome sound effects, the Power Sound FX Figures come to life like

never before!  Each of the figures stands 5.5 inches tall and features

proprietary wire coil activation in the arms and legs that triggers heroic

battle phrases.  Kids simply pull back and hold the activation limb to hear

reverberated phrases such as “I’m invincible!” and “Hiiiiiiii-yaa!” Each

figure comes with different battle phrases and sound effects, as well as

their core Ninja weapons.  The Power Sound FX Figures collection

includes Leonardo, Raphael, Donatello, Michelangelo and Shredder. 

(Ages 4+, $12.99 each, August 2012)


Classis Collection Action Figures: The Classic Collection Action Figures

reflect the look of the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles from the 80’s

TV show. Each Turtle stands 6 inches tall, features more than 30 points of

articulation and is authentically detailed to appeal to the true action figure

collector. Each Turtle will come with its core Ninja weapons and a

personalized sewer lid cover name base. The Classic Collection Action

Ninja Stealth Bike:  A true Ninja needs a stealthy ride with awesome

looks and details, and the Ninja Stealth Bike more than delivers!  As seen

in the TV show and compatible with all the Basic Turtle Action Figures,

the Ninja Stealth Bike allows the Turtles to travel the streets hunting down

The Kraang, without being seen!  The vehicle features a textured turtle

shell that covers the turtle from head to toe, and to on-lookers from above,

makes it look just like the street.  But with Ninja Battle Boost technology

and the flip of a button, the shell opens, revealing a Ninja Turtle ready for

battle!  The cycle comes with an exclusive Raphael action figure decout

in his slick helmet and gloves. (Ages 4+, $19.99, August 2012)

RIDE!   As seen in the TV show and compatible with Shredder, the Foot

Soldiers and the four Basic Turtle Action Figures, the Dragon Chopper has

a look and style like no other.  It includes Ninja Battle Boost technology,

allowing kids to secure their figure on the seat. When ready for battle, kids

simply push the activation button and watch as the action figure performs

a 360 degree flip over the handle bars and lands on its feet, ready for

battle!  The Dragon Chopper comes with an exclusive Foot Soldier action

figure, wearing his red Ninja outfit and a removable dragon helmet. (Ages

4+, $19.99, August 2012)   


 Shellraiser:  When the Turtles need to hit the road and take command and

control with them, they all pile into the Shellraiser. Built to run either on

the subway rails or on the busy streets of New York City, the Shellraiser

delivers all the fire power needed for the Turtles to travel together to take

down Shredder and the Foot Clan!  With entrances on the top, in the front

and on the side of the car, up to eight Basic Action Figures can fit inside.

The Shellraiser really packs a punch with Ninja Battle Boost technology,

including a spring loaded cannon on the top of the car and a side door that

automatically opens with the touch of a button, sending kids’ favorite hero

in a half shell flying out the side with 360 degree Ninja flip-kicking action,

to wage battle on anything standing in its way!  (Ages 4+, $29.99, August
