It’s a great time to be a TMNT fan. It’s the 30th anniversary of the property and a new movie of questionable quality is a month away from release as I type this. It should be no surprise that there’s a plethora of new Turtles product on shelves now.
I’ve been anxiously awaiting the Kidrobot blind-boxed figures since I first saw images of them at Toy Fair. They just recently started popping up at retail and I’ve managed to put together a set thanks to Hot Topic’s never-ending “buy one, get one 50% off” sale. They were $10.50 each before the discount, and that seems like a great value for size and quality of the paint.
You can see from the pics of the packaging that most of the figures are packed 2 per a case of 20, with Splinter and Shredder being short-packed in favor of 2 extra Foot Soldiers.
If you’re a fan of the 80’s/90’s TMNT cartoon, these are right up your alley.
I don’t really have much to say about the Crush tie-in except the cans are pretty cool looking and the boxes indicate that you can save instantly on tickets for the new movie, but I haven’t torn them open yet to get the details.
