The Shellraising Showdown Contest is On!

Are you the kind of Turtles fan who has always wanted to be a part of the action? Well, then maybe this latest contest is the perfect opportunity to create something truly inventive. Target and Nickelodeon have come together to launch the “Shellraising Showdown Contest” to celebrate the new TMNT toys from Playmates. The contest asks fans to create their own ending to a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles comic book in a unique and interesting way. For this project, you’ll be asked to use the new Playmates toys to create a stop-motion video with your ending to the story. The comic was written by Tom Waltz of IDW specifically for this contest, and includes images of the new TMNT toys throughout. Whether you’re interested in participating or not, you can check out the comic and get more information about the contest here.

The grand prize features the following items:

–        Your Video Featured on

–        TMNT Toy Prize Package

–        Signed TMNT Comic Book

–        $500 Target Gift Card

–        Collectible Toys from TMNT Vault, including 4 basic figures signed by Eastman & Laird

–        Gray-cast and paint-master character figure

First place winners will each get one signed TMNT comic book and a $50 gift card. If you want to see the kind of video they’re looking for, check out their own ending below. Personally, I can’t wait to see what the fans will come up with. Granted, it will cost some money to get the toys and make the video, but you were gonna buy the toys anyways, right? So why not have a little fun with them? Enter the contest today and make your own ending totally awesome!
