Playmates Debuts Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Out of the Shadows Toy Line

By bill - April 12, 2016

TMNT-Bebop-RocksteadyThe new TMNT movie is coming soon, and Playmates has just released an ambitious and enormous toy line to support it.  Check out the Out of the Shadows collection here.

We’re only a few months away from the release of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows, and Playmates is once again supporting the film with a huge range of action figures, vehicles and role play toys.  I still can’t get behind this design for the Turtles, but I actually really like the look of some of the new characters, like Rocksteady, Bebop, and the delightfully weird looking Kraang androids.  And Playmates’ toy versions not only feature some really nice sculpts, but kick up the articulation and accessories well beyond the figures we saw from the first movie.

More than anything, Playmates continues to impress me with the huge scope of their TMNT toy lines.  Most movies in the modern era occupy the retail shelves for a very limited amount of time, so they’re lucky to get more than one or two waves of toys out in time.  But the Out of the Shadows collection manages to hit all the major characters in the movie at least once, brings the bad guys to practically every format, and even delivers two big playsets, one for the heroes and one for the villains.  It’s really impressive, and seems like a vote of confidence from them that the movie will be a big hit.

Will the movie be any good?  It’s probably too early to tell.  But I know one thing for sure– I’m totally buying that Kraang figure.  He’s so weird and unsettling looking… I can’t get enough of that little pink weirdo.

Check out details and photos of Playmates’ newest TMNT toy line below, and look for them at basically every major retailer now.

An old menace returns, new mutations arise and the ultimate showdown approaches in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows, the new film from Paramount Pictures and Nickelodeon Movies that will be in theaters on June 3. The film, which is a sequel to the 2014 blockbuster Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, features our favorite heroes rising up again to save the city they love, even if it means exposing themselves for who they truly are–Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles!
