Toy Fair 2014: Kidrobot’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Vinyl Figures [Video]
Kidrobot made good on its Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles teasers in a big way this weekend at Toy Fair 2014 with 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.
Kidrobot plans to release a keychain series, a Mini series, an Ooze Action Bliser series, a 4" Munny series, a 7" Munny series, Bebop and Rocksteady Med Figs, plus TMNT clothing and other apparel between May and November. Characters across all of those lines include Leonardo, Raphael, Donatello, Michelangelo, Splinter, Shredder, Krang (in his android body suit), Bebop, Rocksteady and a Footclan ninja -- plus the ooze-ified versions of the four TMNT bros, Splinter and Shredder.
