Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Gift Guide 2019

It’s the holiday season once again!

Most everyone has at least one turtle fan on their shopping list. The Ninja Turtles now span different generations, and this list is here to help you shop for the TMNT fan of any age. We found the best in turtles figures, comics, video games, and cheese graters so you know exactly what to get that Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle fan who’s collection is never quite finished.

For Younger Fans

TMNT Babble Head Buddies

Nickelodeon’s latest version of the turtles, “Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” is a fun, fast show gaining a ton of new turtle fans. As usual, Playmates Toys has released a ton of merchandise for the latest show. These Babble Head Buddies talk, fight, and are a great gift for any young turtle fan.

 

For the Batman Fan

Batman/TMNT Figures

These figures are based off the recent Batman vs Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles crossover. I loved the art style for the movie, so I was very excited to see these figure sets were coming to Gamestop shelves soon. Each set comes with 1 Batman Character and 1 TMNT figure, so you’ll make fans of both franchises happy.

The movie is phenomenal. The movie ranks among one of DC’s best animated films. With DC Animation’s already stellar history of fantastic films, that shows how much I loved the movie. With a great voice cast, awesome concept, and new art style, any fan of the TMNT or Batman would love to have this addition to their collection. Check out our review here.

 

For the Collector

NECA TMNT figures

The NECA TMNT line started as an exclusive collectors item at Comic Con. Eventually, they gained the rights to sell to certain retailers like Gamestop and Target. Each line has become a highly sought after collectible. The series based on the original 90’s movie came out last year, and the second wave is currently up for preorder at Gamestop.

 

TMNT 1988 set of figures from Gamestop

If hunting for the original figures on eBay is too expensive, or just too much of a hassle, you can pick up these reproduction set, exclusively at Gamestop! The best part is, you don’t need to track down all 4 turtles. All 4 are included in the set! Grab yours from Gamestop.

 

For the Video Game fan

Arcade 1-Up Machine

This is what I want for Christmas. Arcade 1-Up has released coin-op nostalgia to the masses with a ton of offerings. For the sake of time, we won’t talk about the Pac-Man coffee table, or the Marvel cabinet. We’ll focus on the official Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cabinet that has the original arcade game and Turtles in Time, also known as the best game of all time. This one runs on the more expensive side, sure. But replicating the feel of an original TMNT arcade cabinet is worth nearly any price.

 

For the Comic Book Fan

IDW TMNT Issue #100

The longest running Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles comic is reaching it’s milestone issue #100! The road has been filled with surprises on their way to this landmark issue, including the new fifth turtle Jennika!
