Over the past few years, Funko has made a name for themselves with their Pop Vinyl line. These little figures have made it easy and fun for audiences of all ages to collect toys. The toy line may have started out innocently enough, but it has since grown to include characters from hundreds of different franchises and properties – including the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. After roughly a decade of success, Funko has decided to expand the Pop Vinyl name even further with a new 8-Bit design.

Needless to say, Funko could have chosen to start this branch of their most popular product with just about any brand, but they settled on none other than Shredder and the Foot Clan for their very first 8-Bit Pop Vinyls. Although Shredder will only be available in one color, the Foot Soldiers will be available in blue, purple, orange, white and yellow. Long time fans will recognize these colors and designs from the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Arcade Game and its sequel Turtles in Time.

These 8-Bit TMNT Pop Vinyls will make their debut at New York Comic-Con in October, and they will be very limited in number. As a matter of fact, there will only be 500 pieces available for each individual figure, which should make them fairly rare items in short order. That being said, something tells me that this is going to be a popular branch off of their toy line, so we might see a less limited version hit store shelves very soon.

Here’s hoping that these exclusives eventually reach the mass market. Until then, you can always work on your collection of TMNT Pop Vinyls! In addition to our heroes in a half shell, Funko has also produced figures of characters such as Baxter Stockman, Casey Jones and Leatherhead. Who knows? Maybe some of these names will also make an appearance in the new 8-Bit Pop Vinyl line!
