These Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Action Figures Look Like They’ve Stepped Right Out of the 90s

Bandai’s Figuarts line has made some totally rad figures in the past, but these new ones based on the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cartoon are some of their best.

Images of the prototypes for these 6-inch scale toys have been floating around the interwebs for a while now, but now we finally get to see the final, painted product, and they look like they’ve stepped out of my parent’s old Zenith TV and into my toy box. The expressions are great, they’re full of bright, brilliant color. These might even be the ultimate TMNT toys for fans of the cartoon’s classic goofball interpretation of the comic book heroes.

It’s a damn shame that you can’t own all of them quite yet, especially if you’re outside Japan. Bandai has only announced details for preordering Donatello and Leonardo, which will be available to order this Friday in Japan for an August release. And to make matters worse, they’ll only be exclusive to its Tamashii Nations webstore.

Both figures come with their trademark weapons Dontatello with his staff and Leonardo with his Katanas, alternate faces for different emotions and an accessory: Leonardo gets a manhole cover, while Donatello gets a Turtle’s most coveted item: a slice of pepperoni pizza.

Now excuse me while I relive my youth and dust off my Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Turtles in Time for SNES.
