This summer the famous turtles are hitting the big screen with a new movie, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows by Paramount Pictures. This film is a sequel to the 2014 movie and will be at the theaters June 3, 2016. As your kids enjoy this new movie, their old time favorite characters can come to life at home with action figures and vehicles from Playmates Toys. The company has replicated these heroes in a half shell so your children can enjoy hours of imaginary fun. Here is the lineup of the new toys available.
The collection of action figures (see picture) inspired by the film includes Basic Action Figures, 6-inch Battle Sounds Figures and 11-inch Action Figures. In addition to being highly detailed, fully poseable and uniquely sculpted to capture the personalities and distinctive appearance of the Turtles, allies and villains in the movie, each figure comes equipped with its own unique accessories.
The 5-inch Basic Action Figures include the four Ninja Turtles–Leonardo, Raphael, Donatello and Michelangelo–as well as Stealth Leonardo, Pirate Michelangelo, Wingsuit Raphael, April O’Neil, Bebop, Rocksteady, Casey Jones, Foot Soldier, Kraang, Splinter and Shredder. Other action figure assortments include the 11-inch Action Figures and the 6-inch Battle Sounds Figures, which feature a button on the figure’s backpack that triggers up to ten sounds and phrases from the movie. Both assortments include the four Ninja Turtles, as well as Bebop and Rocksteady.
Each of the movie-inspired “Cycles” includes an exclusive action figure and unique ninja action. Cycles that feature ninja-flip action, where the figure will flip over the handlebars into battle position, include the Street Speeder with exclusive Leonardo, and the Ragin’ Racer with exclusive Raphael. Cycles that feature spring-powered missiles include the Warthog Trike with exclusive Bebop, Rhino Chopper with exclusive Rocksteady, and Polaris Slingshot with exclusive Michelangelo.
As seen in the movie, the “Turtle Tactical Truck” (photo above) is full of awesome foot fighting gear including giant nunchucks that can be deployed as the vehicle rolls, a capture net and ninja stars that can be launched to give the Turtles an edge during battle. The truck also features a working forklift and is designed to hold all four Ninja Turtles.
Standing over 40-inches tall, the “City Sewer Lair Playset” is packed with Turtle action, including an oven-styled pizza disc launcher, water slide entrance that is seen in the movie and more. With over 15 features and multi-levels to play, kids can recreate the entire Turtles’ best battles from the movie in play areas including Splinter’s mediation area and Raphael’s gym.
The “Technodrome Playset” opens to over two-feet wide and is packed with play areas. It includes two missile firing projectile launchers, a secret entrance and trap door slide that drops enemies into a jail.
Role Play Gear
With the new assortment of role-play gear, kids can easily mutate into their favorite Turtle from the film. The “Conceal & Reveal Weapons” offer the ultimate battle surprise, as kids can push a button to reveal the powerful weapon and then conceal it by pushing it back into the handle. The “Extreme Battle Shell” is ready to protect kids in any battle and includes a front and back shell for maximum coverage and adjustable straps. To help complete the transformation, “Deluxe Masks” are also available in a variety of characters.
Young heroes can also train to fight like Leo with “Leonardo’s Electronic Battle Sword.” The sword features two play modes, over 50 phrases and sound effects, and it also glows in three different colors during battle.
