NECA TOYS Breaks the Internet with TMNT Announcement

What a freaking way to celebrate World Turtle Day! Randy Falk and NECA TOYS have outdone themselves once again! They have broken Twitter and the Internet with their Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle news!

TMNT Teaser
As a hardcore TMNT fan I am ecstatic! Totally freaking excited! This has been many years in the making and Randy's patience and perseverance has finally paid off. A long time ago on one of our visits to the studio we spotted some Konami TMNT arcade game figures. Of course, we inquired and Randy coyly told us "maybe one day."

NECA Toys Cinemachines Series 1 Review

NECA Cinemachines
Finally, we are getting highly detailed versions of great vehicles from iconic action movies of the past.  Who else but NECA would be the ones to come through for all of us fans!  The first series of Cinemachines is based off the movies ALIEN and ALIENS. This series brings us four different vehicles.  When we spoke to Randy Falk last summer I asked about the possibility of doing large vehicles for Aliens, Terminator, etc since they had already done the Predator Blade Fighter.  He responded with it being a possibility but in a smaller scale.  I wasn't too sure how I felt about the idea of vehicles in a smaller scale, but I was certainly curious about what NECA could do with it.  

Fast forward to this February when we were able to meet with Randy at NY Toy Fair. That is when we actually got to hold these awesome vehicles in hand.   Yes, we all saw the pictures of what was to come, but pictures just don't do these justice. Once I had the Dropship in my hand and shot out the APC I knew they were cooler than any type of line like this before.  The detail of each piece was evident, and the weight/build of each was equally impressive.  Let's take a closer look at these amazing pieces so you can decide where you want to display them!

NECA TOYS T2 Classic VGA T-800 Review

VGA T2 T-800

My older brother and I logged many, many hours playing T2 when we were kids. Back then we were often beating the crap out of each other so it was nice to have something we could play together...without trying to kill each other. While we loved the movie, the game kind of sucked! We preferred the T2 arcade game version. Luckily, even though the game sucked the figure is very cool!

UPDATE from Playmates Toys: TRU Exclusive TMNT Classic Collection Figures Coming Soon

Last week we reported that there has been sightings of three new TMNT Classic Collection figures popping up on eBay and other places online. At that time, we had no news to report on these figures other than to let you know they've been spotted.

Well, we reached out to Playmates Toys to get clarification. They reached out to the marketing department for us and here is what Paula Billingsley (Consumer/Officer Services Manager at Playmates Toys) had to say:
"These are all TRU Exclusives. The first 3, Skateboardin' Michelangelo, Touchdown Tossin' Leonardo, and Delta Donatello are hitting TRU in 1-2 weeks."
They even gave us some insight into future waves of TMNT Classic Collections that they have planned:
"The others are TBD –Super Mikey -Super Don -Military Leo probably fall 9/1/2016."
Well, there you have it! The three Classic Collection TMNT figures that we spotted online are Toys R Us exclusive items and will be hitting shelves soon! Not only that, but another wave is also planned for the fall. You heard it here first!

Also, now that you know that these are coming to Toys R Us please be sure to NOT FEED THE SCALPERS online who are asking for exorbitant amounts of money for these figures!!!
