Argh! – I Missed the TMNT Classic Rocksteady and Bebop at the Playmates Store #NickTurtles #TMNT

Rocksteady Bebop

I’ve been waiting for these guys from the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Classic Collection ever since their Playmates team let us know that Rocksteady and Bebop were on the verge of hitting toy shelves at Toys R Us. But this was back at the start of September, and there’s been no sign of them whatsoever.

Then, last night, Kastor of Kastor’s Korner posts on Facebook that they’re both up on the Playmates Store site. I didn’t even know Playmates had an online store. And of course, I didn’t see the posts until early this morning, so it’s back to waiting for TRU. Here’s the links for Rocksteady and Bebop on the Playmates store, if you are borderline OCD and want to keep checking for them to come back in stock – hit me up if they do!

In the meantime, sign up for Nickelodeon’s TMNT Fan Club. Some great giveaways going on there, including their TMNT Holiday Prize Pack. Cowabunga, dudes!

Vote for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles for the 2013 National Toy Hall of Fame

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is one of twelve brands that are finalists for induction into the National Toy Hall of Fame for 2013. I’m not sure how this factors into the selection process, but there’s also an online poll where you can make your pick.

The winners will be announced in a little over a month, on November 7. So while it’s early days yet, TMNT is getting absolutely trounced in the poll – by My Little Pony! You’re not going to let that stand, are you? There’s actually a lot of worthy brands on the list. My favorites (besides TMNT) are Little Green Army Men, Clue, the Fisher-Price Little People.

Playmates Toys has announced that Toys R Us will be the exclusive home to the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Classic Collection. If you haven’t seen the 4-inch Turtles and vehicles manufactured from the original molds making their way to TRU shelves near you, you will soon. In addition, Rocksteady and Bebop from the 6-inch TMNT Classic Collection should be arriving within the next month, at TRU and specialty retailers.

At SDCC, Playmates confirmed they’ll be adding movie Turtles from the 1990 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles to the 6-inch line. That’s extremely cool, but I’m still waiting for Shredder and the Foot Ninjas.
