2012 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

I was a late 80s/early 90s kid, so as most kids my age, I was into Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. And boy was I ever into TMNT, bedsheets, lunchboxes, stickerbooks, coloring books, Archie comics, you name it I had it.

Ever since then there have been multiple attempts by Playmates to bring them back, the most success coming from the 2003 series. Unfortunately the toys didn’t seem to last long despite the show going for multiple seasons. Now another 9 years later and we have a new show on the horizon, and two new toylines hitting shelves. Needless to say I’m a very happy Turtle fan, and these toys do not disappoint.
