Nerdist has the news on the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles vinyl soundtrack. Those who attended New York Comic-Con were lucky enough to get their hands on the Shredder variant above ahead of the street date, but don't worry, because there are eight total colored vinyl versions of the soundtrack for you to choose from. There's one for each of the turtles featuring the trademark colors of Leonardo, Donatello, Raphael and Michelangelo. On top of that, Casey Jones, April O'Neil, Master Splinter and The Foot Clan all get their own versions too.

Besides the color variants for the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles vinyl soundtrack, comic creator Kevin Eastman created the artwork for the cover and gatefold, calling back to his original character designs from the comic books. On top of that, you'll also get a a poster illustrated by Eastman, and a 1990 TMNT movie poster postcard regardless of what version you buy.

The suggested retail price is $40, but it's not clear if that's how much it will cost at Waxwork Records when the item goes on sale October 19, or if there's a limited amount of each version. You'll have to stay tuned to Waxwork Records to find out more, including what time the soundtrack goes on sale.
