I have a ton of TMNT shirts. And I always get excited when there’s a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles design that has a bit more… edge to it.
Yes, I’m aware I sound like a complete jerk saying that. But, please, let me explain. There is a ton of TMNT merchandise out there. It’s a multi-million maybe billion dollar franchise. And 98% of it features the characters from the classic 80’s cartoon. Obviously there’s nothing wrong with that, like what you like, but it only makes me more excited to finally find a design that stands out from the traditional 4-turtle pose.
LootCrate announced a new capsule collection featuring TMNT designs inspired by metal bands. I love it. Each design has a completely different feel and character focus. It doesn’t sacrifice style for quality either, as each shirt feels super soft and has a silkscreen tag, in lieu of the itchy regular tag.
Shredder’s design is based from a Judas Priest album cover. Bebop and Rocksteady form a great parody of the Motörhead logo. The Turtles take from the Glam metal era. And (my favorite) Metalhead’s shirt design borrows from great 80’s thrash metal albums.

Shirts are $30 each + Shipping. If you get all 4 you get a discount and bonus pair of socks! I really love all the designs from the collection. LootCrate is a known and trusted source for geek culture and has featured other TMNT exclusives through the years. Supporting this crate could mean much more TMNT stuff in the future.
