TMNT Classics Bebop and Rocksteady revealed


MTVGeek tweeted a picture of the forthcoming second wave of the TMNT Classics line consisting of Bebop and Rocksteady. While, we’ve known for about a week that Wave 2 would consist of this pair, we have not previously seen any images of them.

I was uneasy that the figures would be based more heavily on the original action figures than their portrayals in the cartoon. Thankfully, that is definitely not the case. Rocksteady even comes with the army helmet that we really only see for the first few episodes of the series. I was lukewarm on the first wave’s turtles, but these two have me sold pretty solidly. I do hope that we see a trash can lid shield like the one packaged originally for Bebop.

I know that when I write these articles that they tend to get on pretty niche topics. This time around I think I have outdone myself on niche-ness. If you were born any time after 1975, you should know of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and their wonderful initial toy line from Playmates in the early 90’s. If you collect toys, you should absolutely know of the Four Horsemen. You should also have heard of the Four Horsemen’s FANtastic Exclusive endeavor and the property it spawned, The Seventh Kingdom. In today’s article, we are going to draw some parallels between the properties. Read on after the jump to learn more!

Toy Fair 2012: Playmates TMNT

Playmates has put together a surprisingly nice showing for their long time Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles license. They had a basic line of figures that matches up to the new forthcoming animated series from Nickelodeon, the new owners of the franchise. They also had a collector’s line that seemed very well received. To top it all off, Playmates had a massive new sewer playset that will be a sure hit for any kids whose parents can afford it.

Toy Fair 2012: Hasbro Acquires STAR TREK License

Major Breaking toy news: Hasbro has landed the rights to produce toys based on the popular science fiction series Star Trek. No formal details were announce other than they would launch with the next Star Trek movie in May 2013.

A posting on does make mention of KREO toys being part of the agreement, meaning ships from the Star Trek universe will be represented with the brick building toys.

This news comes just a few days before Toy Fair in New York City, which typically showcases major new releases from toy manufacturers and designers. It is unlikely that any new Star Trek toys will be on display since the first release isn’t due for over a year.

Previously, Star Trek toys were handled by Playmates. They launched a relatively well received line for the 2009 Star Trek movie, but the second wave of figures was delayed to to June 2010 and then ultimately cancelled.
