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 »

The first film in the rebooted Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles franchise may have gotten everything wrong about the heroes in a half-shell, likely thanks to Michael Bay’s involvement, but Paramount Pictures and Nickelodeon tried to make it better by delivering a sequel that was more faithful to the animated series.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows included villains like Krang, Bebop and Rocksteady, the Technodrome, cut down on Megan Fox‘s screentime and more. Unfortunately, as the folks at Honest Trailers so astutely points out, they also forgot to write a story that makes some goddamn sense.

If you didn’t like the most recent big screen adaptation of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, there’s a good chance that you’re one of the many fans who preferred the original franchise iteration from the 1990s. The original movie from the beginning of the decade was surprisingly dark and gritty for a movie that ended up being a favorite of kids, but that tone changed a bit when Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Secret of the Ooze was made the following year.
Since there were millions of kids who became obsessed with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, largely because of the popular animated series that came out even before the first movie did, New Line Cinema decided they needed to make the franchise more child friendly. You may never have realized this before, but that’s why the turtles rarely use their signature weapons to thwart bad guys. In fact, there was one key moment in when Michelangelo uses a pair of sausages strung together as some makeshift nunchucks. However, even that was deemed too much for audiences in the United Kingdom.
