Over the course of the last several days you had a lot of images and info thrown at you all at once for San Diego Comic Con, so now that things are winding down we wanted to go back and recap some of the highlights from the show. The first being NECA and their various line of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles collector figures.
So first thing to note is they will be doing three different 6" lines for various retailers. Just announced the other day
was a brand new line of video game based figures from the Turtles In Time
game that will be sold exclusively through the comic and online specialty markets. Then we will be getting movie based figures sold exclusively at Gamestop
stores and then finally the animated series 2-packs which will be sold as Target store exclusives.
The second wave of Target store exclusive 2-packs
will include 2 Foot Soldiers, Rocksteady and Bebop
, and the remaining two sets will feature the 4 Turtles
based on style guide colors
, which translates to brighter tones than the previous animated series figures. They will also include new accessories.
Other figures for the Target series though not specifically confirmed for wave 3 include cartoon versions of April O' Neil, Casey Jones, Slash, Leatherhead, Metalhead
new Foot Soldiers
including a battle damaged one.
They will also be doing an Ultimate FOOT soldier
with one figure and multiple heads and weapons. The Rodney droid from the arcade will see release either as a 2-pack or possibly a 3-pack depending on cost.
Next year is the 30th Anniversary of the original TMNT movie and they will be doing more figures as well as figures for Secret Of The Ooze which we will start to see at NYCC and more so during Toy Fair.
