TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES: OUT OF THE SHADOWS

It was initially announced last summer, but now comes word that TMNT x Melo, "a high-octane line of boys’ apparel and accessories inspired by the beloved Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles," will debut exclusively at Macy's this May. Created in partnership between Macy's, Nickelodeon and NBA All-Star Carmelo Anthony, this new collection is said to be "channeling the fearless energy of the crime-fighting foursome - a limited-time capsule collection that features graphic t-shirts, hoodies, shorts, pajama sets, and socks, as well as basketballs and an over-the-door basketball hoop so that kids can show off their inner Carmelo Anthony."

Toy Fair New YorkFact: We cannot get enough of the TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES in this house. From the mainline action figures (I had to pay a stupid price for a Karai figure for Xmas through a 3rd party seller), to the half-shell heroes, the girls and I love the TMNT action - and it's play has eclipsed even what I experienced the first time around as a Turtle-loving kid nearly 30 years ago. Just-announced at Toy Fair are some new additions to the TMNT line, including several new spin-offs that focus on different types of play patterns well beyond the traditional action figures. Take a look at some early details below, and keep in mind that this is just a sprinkling of what's coming in the months ahead...

Well, this was unexpected... two TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES stories going back-to-back in one day. While the first focused on a new toy sub-line from the folks at Playmates Toys, the next bit of news comes from Paramount Pictures, who've just released the first teaser trailer for TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES: OUT OF THE SHADOWS. While we loved the toys based on the 2014 live-action film here at Rock Father HQ, I was really mixed on the film itself (reviewed here), though I've grown more fond of it in repeat viewings over time. For the second film in the current series, it certainly looks as though the filmmakers have taken into account much of what fans have been hoping to see - with characters like Bebop & Rocksteady, Casey Jones and Baxter Stockman getting the live-action treatment. Additionally, we just might be getting the best film version of the "Shellraiser" (previewed here) ever seen. Check this out...

The world of the TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES keeps getting bigger, and the folks at Playmates Toys keep expanding upon the types of play that's available to the growing legion of TMNT fans out there. While the core action figures are the cornerstone, T-Machines (reviewed here), Mutations and Half-Shell Heroes are also increasingly popular. Now comes T-Sprints, "Mighty Motorized Micros" that are launching first at Toys "R" Us this month, and racing into other retailers beginning in January of 2016. What are they? Quite simply, they're old-school rev-up toys, but with a "unique flywheel so kids can rev and send them sprinting into action." Check out two promotional spots and full details below...

When it comes to diecast rides, there's a lot that we love, and our fleet increases regularly here at Rock Father HQ. Among the latest to start rockin' the road with The Rock Daughters are the TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES T-Machines - reviewed here on THE ROCK FATHER Magazine earlier this Fall. Created by Playmates Toys and available in the diecast aisles of your favorite toy emporiums right now, these vehicles take inspiration from Nickelodeon's hit TMNT animated series, placing each character (heroes and villains alike) in vehicles that would be totally appropriate for "raising shell" on the streets of NYC. An official entry into The Rock Father's 2015 Holiday Wish Guide, the T-Machines are also the very first Holiday Wish Guide Giveaway for the season, with one lucky reader taking home a seriously Turtle-riffic prize pack that includes two (2) basic vehicles, two (2) vehicles with sound, and one (1) basic playset - all chosen at random from the available assortment!

2015 Holiday Wish GuideHaving seen all the various incarnations of the TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES over the years, it's been fascinating to see the waves of popularity levels rise and fall over time. I was front-and-center the first time the TMNT crew jumped from animated to live-action, and I tend to think that they're actually more popular now. TMNT has been firmly-established as a multi-generational interest at this point, one enjoyed by parents and kids, girls and boys alike. When a character becomes so loved that they wind up being sold on little girls' underwear (and yes, The Rock Daughters' do have Ninja Turtles undies), that's a big deal. From the beginning, Playmates Toys has held the master license, and I think that their toys just keep getting better. This year, they've launched a new sub-line that places the Turtles and their enemies in a new aisle at the toy store - the diecast section. Enter the T-MACHINES.
