NECA Plans Shredder and Foot Clan Figures Based on 90’s TMNT Movies

This probably won’t come as much of a surprise, but it’s looking like NECA has decided to continue working with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (1990) property. Although they recently finished up their line of all four turtles from the film, some fans have been asking “where are the villains?” Thankfully, that question already appears to have been answered, as images recently leaked indicate that the popular toy company has plans to develop both Shredder and his Foot Clan in 2018.

Unfortunately, NECA has yet to release pictures of these figures. However, the signage used in a photo provided by a fellow shellhead suggests that these collectibles will in fact be based on the 1990 movie and they will be coming next year. I think it’s safe to say that this property has proven very valuable for the company. After all, they probably wouldn’t bother developing a set of action figures like this unless they had good reason to expect that they would sell.

Donatello, Raphael, Leonardo and Michelangelo are now all available to purchase for about $100 each. This may be a bit pricey for some, but considering the level of detail on these figures and the cost of similar items on the market, $100 is actually a very good deal. It looks like NECA will be using the same general scale for their Shredder and Foot Clan collectibles, so we can probably expect them to sell for a comparable price.

Sadly, we won’t be able to tell you anything else until NECA decides to reveal more details about these figures. Chances are that we can expect them to make an official announcement and provide teaser images at some point in the next 6 months, but I wouldn’t hold out hope for any additional information during 2017. For now, we’ll all just have to rest comfortably knowing that they are indeed working on a product that several fans have been asking to see.

What do you think about this news? Are you happy to see NECA continue their work with the 1990 TMNT movie franchise? Are you excited to hear that they have plans for Shredder and Foot Clan figures? Share your thoughts 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!
