They're the World's most fearsome fighting teens...They're heroes, in a half shell, and they're GREEN...


With the 25th Anniversary of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Playmates toys is re-releasing retro models of the original TMNT toys. Very little of an Ad-campaign and not much publicity, but they have stayed true in nearly all details, right down to the original packaging and figure accessories (although, Donatello is a bit lighter then the original). I happened to be grocery shopping in a Target, saw them on the shelf, and calmly walked over, picked up all 4, and dropped them in my cart. These were among my most FAVORITE toys growing up, and I think I might even have the originals somewhere at my parent's house. Good stuff. I think I will leave these unopened for my kids to play with. Or not.

And just to rattle your memory:

Oh my goodness!!!! I may not be as calm as you. I am so getting all four. TNMT were my all-time favorites!!! *sigh* I would leave work now, but I have to be here for some reason. Wow. I love TNMT!!

LOL who was calm?! I tried not to scream in the store, just dropped them in the buggy, checked out, and sat in the car taking pictures to send to all my friends. I must have used 20 or 30 texts just from the purchase.

Do I see 'Bonus DVD' on the packaging?!?!?!?

Yeah, each turtle comes with one of the first four episodes from the first season of the cartoon.
