Hello Kitty X Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Toys Are A Shell Of A Mashup
Between Mutant Turtles: Choujin Densetsu-hen and its corresponding Supermutants action figure line circa 1996, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles have a solid history of radical anime and toy treatment in Japan. Later this month toymaker Dreams Come True will contribute another awesome lawyer to the TMNT’s Japanese legacy by mashing up Leonardo, Donatello, Michelangelo and Raphael with none other than Sanrio’s Hello Kitty. Meowabunga, dudes!
The 5.7″ tall PVC figures are modeled after the most recent incarnation of the TMNT on Nickelodeon and come armed with chunky versions of all the right weapons. And color-coordinated bows! Glorious color-coordinated bows.
Fans who can’t live without the slightly metallic figures will want to act fast, though. Each of the four caturtles is limited to 1,000 pieces for the price of 7,329 yen (approximately $73 USD) a pop. The toys are set to ship on November 23, but seem to still be available through the DCT website.
