As usual, the Playmates presentation was all Ninja Turtles all the time, which makes sense since there was so much of it.
The basic figure line continues this year, introducing some new characters and some fun repaints. Also look for the big Dimension X push, which seems to be the upcoming arc on the TMNT cartoon.
Loving the vintage deco.
The Mutations line has been doing well for the company, so expect that to expand in the coming year. Turtles that change from pet to ninja, those customizer-friendly figures with the swappable parts and a new set of Centurians-esque figures with armored shells. There’s a lot of toys that change on their way.
Raph without his shell is straight-up nightmare fuel.
Inspired by the episode where Donatello was eaten by a muscle car (don’t ask), this line of figures/cars is something Playmates is really excited about.
Designed for little kids, but super collector friendly, this is one of my favorite lines right now. If only Target would get them back in stock.
The Party Wagon and the Pizza Thrower are back. Casey gets a “Slamboni” and a new figure to go with it. Mikey and Raph get their own sweet rides.
The Sewer Playset is getting a facelift, with new features and a Dimension X portal.
