My favorite thing about the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is how inclusive it is of all past iterations of the heroes on the half shell. The Nickelodeon show and Playmates’ toy line both blend characters from Mirage Comics, the classic TV show, the vintage toy line and more, making a sort of definitive narrative out of this huge world and enormous cast of characters.
It’s funny how iconography works when it comes to properties like this– Every child of the 80s knows Bebop and Rocksteady, the mutant henchmen from the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cartoon. And yet, these characters have never existed outside of that incarnation of TMNT… until now.
Newly rebooted versions of the mutants will appear during the latest season of the Nick cartoon, and Playmates is releasing action figures based on these new appearances. The duo will be released in early 2015 as part of Playmates’ remarkably good basic action figure line, but in the meantime they’ll both be available as Wal-Mart exclusives starting in mid November!
The TMNT Fan Club is also giving you the chance to win this pair of figures, but only until November 7th… You can Click Here to find out how to win. Read on for more info from Playmates about these new additions to the TMNT collection:
Bebop and Rocksteady are finally here!
You’ll need to wait a little longer to see this duo in action on-screen, but the action figures by Playmates Toys will be available exclusively at Walmart starting in mid-November.
Can’t wait? Three TMNT Fan Club members will win a set of both action figures BEFORE they hit shelves!
