Pre-Order Playmates' Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Toys... including the Epic Lair Playset!

Written by

Back in February, I had the opportunity to get a first-hand look at some of Playmates Toys' Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles offerings at the 115th North American International Toy Fair. In a special presentation alongside members of the TMNT cast and crew, we were shown some radically-different takes on some familiar characters - and while the reimagined series had yet to be seen, one thing was certain: the toys were cool! Set for release on October 1, the toys are now available for pre-order via Amazon, Walmart and Target (all affiliates of this site). In addition to the basic action figures, the Turtles' ride has always been a must-have, and at the pinnacle of the collection has been the sewer lair - now presented in an all-new form. The Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Epic Sewer Lair Playset will be the envy of the neighborhood - bigger, sturdier, and packed with more features than ever!

Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Epic Sewer Lair 

"Living in the sewers and trained by their sensei rat master, Splinter, four mutant ninja turtles are ready to complete their training. But before they go above ground, they hit the weight room, train in the dojo, invent new tech, play video games, hit the rad skate-ramp and play basketball to unwind!…and did we mention they soon discover a hidden world they never knew existed!"

Also shown at Toy Fair was another set that was nearly the same size as the Epic Lair - the "Hidden City." Eventually the Lair will be able to be stacked on top of that one, which is slated for release in the fall of 2019. Get your hands on all of these toys now, as they're gonna be hot!
