Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Movie Action Figures

UPDATE: If you missed out on these figures from San Diego Comic-Con, you now have another opportunity to get them. Get all the details on how you can pre-order them below.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles were all the rage when I was a kid. Not only was there the live-action film adaptation from 1990 that I could rewatch on VHS every day, but there was an animated series that I could watch when there were still cartoons playing all over the place every Saturday morning. And while there were plenty of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles action figures that I collected over the years, I was always disappointed that none of them looked like how the turtles appeared in the movies. If you felt the same way, the good news is we don’t have to feel that disappointment anymore.

NECA has announced another one of their San Diego Comic-Con exclusives, and it’s a four-pack of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, sculpted and styled exactly how they appeared in the 1990s live-action movie. They even come inside of a package that looks like the original VHS slip case for the video tape. These might be the best Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie action figures ever made. Read More »
