Mondo Turns Back the Clock to Nickelodeon’s Glory Days With December Art Show

Mondo/Art by Dave Perillo
Mondo/Art by Dave Perillo

The Nickelodeon of the '90s is alive and well in the hearts and minds of a generation of fans, but thanks to the recent revival on The Splat, icons like Ren, Stimpy, Tommy Pickles, Rocko and Doug Funnie are thriving once again. With that in mind, Mondo's turned its attention to the network where sliming someone used to mean something. Just because you couldn't do that on television doesn't mean you can't do it at an art show.

NECA Makes the Impossible Happen, Plans to Finally Release TMNT Villains Set at NYCC

NECA
NECA

Finally. That' really all there is to say about NECA's long "lost" Foot Clan and Shredder figures from its planned Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Mirage line. After being shown off at trade shows in 2009, the figures for the Turtles' biggest foes never saw the light of day at retail for reasons many of us will likely never know. For years, the prototypes sat at NECA's New Jersey studio, offering but a glimmer of what could have been but never was.

Then at this year's San Diego Comic-Con, NECA finally found a way to get Shredder and some Foot Clan soldiers out to the masses in the TMNT Arcade Set. A companion to the newly minted Turtles, the set was a hit with fans who'd been waiting for ages for these forgotten figures to arrive. Now, NECA has made another miracle happen, and will finally release Shredder and the Foot as originally intended at this year's New York Comic Con.

The Dream of the ’90s Arcade is Alive With NECA’s SDCC Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Set [Review]

NECA Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Arcade Set

The NECA Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Arcade Set was arguably one of the most anticipated and sought-after San Diego Comic-Con exclusives this year. Fans have been after more NECA TMNT figures ever since the company delivered its Mirage-inspired foursome way back when. The rest of the planned line, which consisted of Shredder and the Foot Clan, never saw the light of day --- though those "lost" figures were retooled and repainted to fit into the Foot Clan companion set to this Turtles collection at SDCC.

The Turtles themselves got all-new sclupts, paint apps and accessories that more closely resemble the animated characters on which the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles arcade game were based. The wait has been long for some truly quality TMNT figures, and even though these are a very specific set of ninjas, they're damn brilliant.

Leonardo Leads the Charge for Sideshow’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Statue Series

Sideshow Collectibles
Sideshow Collectibles

A little over a month ago, Sideshow Collectibles announced a new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles print based on a gauche painting by artist Paolo Rivera. The company teased there would be some statues to go along with it eventually, and today we have our first official look at the new line of four pieces inspired by Rivera's work. If you were wondering if they'd be able to capture the detail and style, these first prototype images sure make it look like they will.

Things kick of with Leonardo, who is captured perched on a sewage pipe ready to lead the rest of the Turtles into battle with whatever poor soul dared venture beneath the New York City streets. While not based on any particular incarnation of the Turtles, Rivera's own interpretation looks terrific in sculpted form.

Turtle Power! The Best Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Fan Art Ever

featured

A library’s worth of comic books, multiple successful animated series, half a dozen movies, a bonanza of video games, enough toys and action figures to sink a battleship, millions of albums sold, and a “live”, touring rock ‘n roll stage show. When talking about the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles it starts to become easier to try to think of the aspects of pop culture they haven’t conquered. But what’s even more astounding than that is when you realize they’ve conquered so many of these corners of the zeitgeist over and over.

For the last three decades, these radioactive, sewer-dwelling reptiles have time and again reinvented themselves for new generations of fans eager to learn more about martial arts and pizza, as well as pulling back in former “party dudes/dudettes” who now have little would be Turtle fans of their own. Or, you know, people who are old enough to have kids, but don’t, and are just happy to see the Ninja Turtles re-emerge from the depths to take over the airwaves and toy aisles yet again.

Prime 1 Studio Takes the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Back to the ’90s

Prime 1 Studio
Prime 1 Studio

After grabbing the license to the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles from the 2014 film, most of us expected Prime 1 Studio to stick with the modern incarnations seen in Paramount's live-action update on the '80s cartoon. Given how Prime has worked with the company on the Transformers side of things, that line of thinking made some sense. Then this past weekend at Wonder Festival Winter, Prime 1 Studio shattered expectations completely. Not only is the company continuing to put out more Turtles goods, but soon the fan-favorite iterations from the 1990 feature film will find their way from the sewers into collections around the world.

The four-statue set features the Ninja Turtles as they were in the landmark action movie of 1990. Unlike the computer-generated Turtles that populate the current films, these statues will be based on the actual costumes worn by actors playing Donatello, Raphael, Michelangelo and Leonardo. I haven't been this excited about a TMNT collectible since Good Smile's James Jean statue series, but these new statues speak to me on a whole different level. And that level is my childhood.

Nickelodeon Taps ‘Napoleon Dynamite’ Team for ‘NickToons’ Animated Movie

Last year Nickelodeon announced plans to revive several of our favorite ’90s shows, starting with a special block of programming called “The Splat.” But that’s not all the network has been cooking up for nostalgic fans — they’ve also been developing a new film that will bring many of our favorite ’90s cartoon characters together on the big screen for one big, animated adventure, and the company has found the right creative team to tackle the ambitious project.

Platinum’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutants in Manhattan Looks Radical

Platinum Games
Platinum Games

The worst-kept video game secret of 2016 has finally been officially announced. Platinum Games and Activision are teaming with Nickelodeon for a new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles video game, and one with a distinct co-op bent, too. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutants in Manhattan will see the fab four tackle perennial villains Shredder and his Foot Clan across the city they all call home. Unlike Platinum's previous '80s cartoon-turned-action game Transformers Devastation, TMNT: MiM won't have an art style that's ripped straight from the animation archives. Instead, it looks like Platinum is following the art style of IDW Publishing's current TMNT artist, Mateus Santolouco.

Platinum's got a strong history of developing exciting action games, though there have been a few misses in the company's expanding catalog. After the success of Transformers Devastation, it's easy to get caught up in hoping TMNT will be just as solid. The gameplay shown off in the trailer looks good in motion, but without being able to play it ourselves. Let's not get hung up on the possibilities of disappointment just yet though because this game is going to have Armaggon, and that's just cool enough for us right now.

The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Get Bigger and Badder With ThreeZero and Kevin Eastman

Clutter
Clutter

Last summer, ThreeZero and Kevin Eastman unveiled a collaboration to create new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle figures. In the months since, a number of TMNT developments have gone down, including a crossover with Batman, Mondo's figures all becoming available, a new movie trailer (and figure line), and some potential video game leakage happening, too. But there's been radio silence from ThreeZero about the state of its planned collaboration with one of the Turtles' founding fathers.

This week, a new issue of Clutter (a niche toy/collectible magazine) broke that silence. In a new interview with Eastman and ThreeZero's founder/owner Kim Fung Wong, Clutter was able to share some of Eastman's concept art and give us our first look at the painted prototypes. While we've had a lot of different Turtle toys over the years, seeing how Eastman would interpret the characters today gives us a perspective on the characters we'd otherwise never have, even if they only will exist as toys.
