The Turtles are coming back and bringing lovely new toys with them… Cowabunga!

February 4th, 2012 by Marc Comments

The Turtles are coming back later this year in a new CGI TV series from Nickelodeon and Playmates look like they’ve raised their game as far as the figures are concerned.

MTV Geek got the first look at the figures, above, and we at FTN love them! This is a teaser with more figures, vehicles, role-play items… and if they keep up this quality we at FTN could be out a lot of money.

The design of the cartoon is a beautiful blend of IDW’s recent comic, the cartoon series and Eastman and Laird’s original designs. And, according to MTV, the figures vary in size between 4.25″ to 4.75″… what does this mean? Well, to those who aren’t into their toy collecting it means the figures don’t all share the same repainted body as most action figures do… this shows a real sense of dedication by Playmates.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
