It’s a good time to be a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles fan. In the past couple years, the collectible toy makers at NECA have been delivering some incredible figures inspired by the comic book movie franchise. Their action figure lines range from detailed and and perfectly sculpted versions of characters from the original movie from 1989 to stylized figures modeled after the animated series. And as Toy Fair 2020 revealed, there are plenty more to come.
Since NECA is starting to run out of characters from the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie, they’re now turning their attention to Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2: The Secret of the Ooze. Since the four turtles from the original movie are already out there, NECA is giving villains more of a spotlight, including the mutants Tokka and Rahzar, as well as the beefy version of the turtles’ arch nemesis. But don’t worry if the sequel doesn’t appeal as much, because there are a couple more figures from the original movie on the way too. Read More »

A couple years ago, NECA released an exclusive Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles box set featuring the animated versions of the characters from their own series that ran from 1987 through 1996. It was a San Diego Comic-Con exclusive, but NECA eventually released the figures as two-packs that you could only buy at Target. They’ve been a little difficult to get ahold of in stores, never listed on Target’s website, and the secondary market has a mark-up of about 50% (if not more) if you try to find them.
Thankfully, NECA has released a second wave of animated Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles action figures as two-packs that you can get only at Target. They repackage the heroes in a half-shell, with a slightly different paint job, and there are two new villain two-packs this time, including the dimwitted mutant duo Bebop and Rocksteady and a couple Foot Soldiers. And the best news is that they’re actually available to buy online. Read More »
