SDCC 2013: Playmates Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Panel Video

I haven’t yet been to the Playmates booth to take in the latest Turtles, but this panel served a dual purpose – one, of course, was to highlight upcoming product. The other was to do a bit of a retrospective of the last 30 odd years, with members of the Playmates team that had worked on the lines for most of that time.

Members of the mutant marketing team for Playmates Toys-the master toy licensee for TMNT since the 1980s-prepare to “unleash shell,” discussing what’s now, new, and next for the articulated heroes on a half-shell. Get sneak peeks at future toys (perhaps some from season 2 of the Turtles’ animated series or the upcoming TMNT movie), and ask questions of “team green” members who’ve worked on all three incarnations of the Turtles since their debut decades ago.
