We've gotten quite a few looks at the upcoming live action/CGI hybrid Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie over the past few months, but as of Toy Fair 2014 Playmates' corresponding action figure line was still under wraps. Chinese language site ACToys has posted new photos of the figures, however, giving us all a look at the hoodie-waisted, puka shell-rockin' quartet in all their ball jointed glory. We're painfully trying to reserve full judgement until trailer footage from the movie arrives in April -- and maybe even through the film's August 8 release date -- but for now we can safely say this much about director Jonathan Liebesman's heroes in a half shell: Jim Lee's 1996 TMNT figure designswere cooler.
You can see what you think of the upcoming figures from Playmates below.
So it looks like, at least for now, we're just going to have to settle for the cake topper versions of Leonardo, Donatello, Michelangelo and Raphael. Are you ready to see some plastic turtles who are wearing shoes? Click on through.
The man who co-created the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles with Peter Laird is set for perhaps his weirdest voice acting gig yet this weekend's latest CG animated episode entitled, "Ice Cream Kitty," on Nickelodeon. Kevin Eastman will meow it up as April's cat, who accidentally ingests a flawed retromutagen experiment -- flawed because Mikey just dropped a scoop from his drippy ice cream cone into the mix -- and transforms into one of the weirdest/cutest mutants the current series (or any series) has ever seen. You can see the transformation take place after the cut in advance of Sunday's episode.
Following last week's absolutely unforgettable, star-studded and perhaps even scandalous100-episode spectacular, ComicsAlliance begins a new era of the best and longest running podcast covering comic book entertainment news.
Recorded on Friday, this episode features Senior Editors Andy Khouri and Caleb Goellner alongside writers Chris Sims and Andrew Wheeler for a deep and intense discussion of the most crucial topics affecting the comic book industry. Specifically, who was cast in another Fantastic Four movie; what people think about another superhero movie, Guardians of the Galaxy, that they never thought they'd like anyway; the 30th anniversary of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles; and why RoboCop Vs. Terminator is awesome.
All that glitters isn't necessarily gold -- sometimes it's vinyl, and vinyl molded into designer figures of Batman and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Fans can thank Funko for such glittery (and more chrome-like) goodness, as the toymaker revealed new Hikari figures based on the characters at Toy Fair 2014.
Turning 30 isn't everyone's favorite, but when it comes to Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, it's nothing but a cause for celebration. To commemorate this mutant milestone, in May IDW will release its Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 30th Anniversary Special, an anthology bursting with all-new content from a selection of the comic series' most influential creative teams. If that's not enough, the anthology will come wrapped in the first official TMNT collaboration between Eastman and Laird in years. To get the full scoop, ComicsAlliance got in touch with Eastman and TMNT editor Bobby Curnow. Click through to read the full interview and see the brand new Eastman and Laird art, along with a piece by Eastman, Simon Bisley and Ryan Brown.
As the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles come back into the public eye with the second season of their CG animated Nickelodeon series and this summer's Michael Bay-produced live action movie, so too must Vanilla Ice. It is simply the way of things.
Ice is indeed back with an invention that isn't entirely brand new, but it may grab a hold of you tightly. It's a Kraft Macaroni and Cheese commercial in which Ice, who has apparently swallowed his pride and taken a job as a stocker at a supermarket, sings "Ninja Rap" with an annoyed kid's mom. Check out the video after the jump.
Kidrobot made good on its Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles teasers in a big way this weekend at Toy Fair 2014with a bodacious display of its three classes of upcoming vinyl figures. Rather than basing the toys off of the new Nickelodeon CG animated series or this summer's live action TMNT film, Kidrobot's toys are callbacks to the late 1980s and early '90s action figure designs popularized by Playmates and the 1987-1996 cartoon. The colors are bright, the sculpts are slick-yet-silly and the packaging is plainly radical.
