With San Diego Comic-Con just over a week away, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are set to make an impact for their 35th anniversary.
From exclusive collectibles to giant panels, this year’s SDCC is sure to give TMNT fans plenty of options. Here’s everything Ninja Turtles we were able to find for the biggest pop-culture celebration of the year.
NECA Toys SDCC Exclusive “The Capture of Splinter” Figure Set
It seems that every year at SDCC, NECA Toys outdoes themselves with their TMNT figures. Years ago, their produced a set of figures based on the Mirage Comics, the original arcade games, and the ’87 cartoon. Following last year’s exclusive set, all 4 brothers designed from the 1990 film in 7 inch scale, would seem impossible. Luckily, they gave us a companion piece to the 2018 exclusive.
This set features another 4 figures, letting you recreate pivotal moments from the same 1990 film. Movie versions of Splinter, Shredder, and 2 Foot Clan members come in the package. There are a ton of accessories and the details are gorgeous. Right now, these are exclusive to the convention, but anyone not able to get their hands on the exclusive set can hope for a Gamestop release in the future.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Michelangelo dressed as Batman
Taken from the latest Warner Bros. Animation release, this figure is straight from the movie. After Michelangelo discovers everything the Batcave has to offer, he tries on the cape and cowl for a joyride. Mikey’s joy for Gotham and it’s characters is one of the best parts of the movie.
This is a unique figure for any TMNT collector, or Batman fan. You can pre-order yours here!
