NECA Provides Downloadable Diorama for TMNT Arcade Figures

Earlier this year, NECA revealed plans for a set of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Arcade figures which immediately became wildly popular. Sadly, these toys were only intended as a comic-con exclusive, so they had a very limited print run. Although we haven’t seen any indication that they have plans for a second run of these TMNT collectibles, it is worth noting that anyone who did get their hands on them can now download the authentic background diorama to go with their 16-bit turtles!

As part of their 12 Days of Downloads – a celebration leading up to Christmas day – NECA has released the full size background images they used to promote their TMNT Arcade figures. These dioramas were designed to replicate the appearance of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Arcade Game. Needless to say, they did a pretty good job of recreating the look and feel of this classic video game.

Unfortunately, these beautiful backdrops were not sold with the figures, so fans were left to decorate their own display instead. Now that NECA has provided all of the necessary files for owners to recreate the arcade setting, it should be a lot easier to display these Ninja Turtles collectibles properly.

Even if you didn’t get your hands on NECA’s TMNT Arcade figures, it might still be a good idea to download these files while you can. After all, you never know if you’ll find these in a garage sale someday! Besides which, this would be a pretty awesome background for any Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles display. Even if they don’t use it as intended, something tells me that TMNT collectors would still appreciate a diorama that replicates the level design of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Arcade Game!

NECA’s 12 Days of Downloads isn’t over yet, so there’s always a possibility that they could reveal even more TMNT artwork over the next few days. Keep your eyes peeled as they countdown to Christmas, and make sure that you download anything interesting. There’s no telling when or if they will remove these links, so it’s best to assume that this could be a limited time offer and download everything you may want in the future.

Are you excited to see NECA finally providing the background artwork for their TMNT Arcade figures? Will you be downloading this diorama for yourself? Share your thoughts and opinions either in the comments below or on Facebook/Twitter.

My name is Justin Wren and I love to write about the TMNT! I've been a big Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles fan since the late 80's. Back then, I would watch the original animated series and play with the Playmates toys all the time. I have been following the boys ever since I was a kid, and I'm very happy to see them back in the limelight after all these years. Needless to say, I'm proud to be a member of the team on this awesome TMNT Fan Site!
