If your house is like ours, TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES is a big deal. In fact, TMNT is a big deal not just in hour house, but on our entire block, with two kids having themed birthday parties in just the past month, and yours truly having just bought Christmas-themed TMNT wrapping paper in preparation for the weeks ahead. Now, Nickelodeon and Playmates Toys have announced the return of some classic baddies from the Turtles’ line, with the launch of their Bebop and Rocksteady action figures – available in mid-November exclusively at Walmart. The duo will then make their much-anticipated return to TV this January as part of the current third season of Nickelodeon’s CG-animated Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series.
“Partners in crime Bebop and Rocksteady have been fan favorites since the original animated series debuted in the 1980s. We’re thrilled to have had the opportunity to update the characters for a whole new generation of kids and original Turtles fans to enjoy.”Karl Aaronian, Senior Vice President of Marketing, Playmates Toys.
The highly detailed Bebop and Rocksteady action figures stand 5” tall, are fully articulated and uniquely sculpted to capture the personalities of this perennially popular duo. Each figure is equipped with unique accessories and is compatible with most of the vehicles and playsets in the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles toy line. Bebop, a pig-headed mutant, features a bright purple Mohawk, X-ray glasses and comes ready to battle with his weapon accessories. Rocksteady, a mutated rock-headed Rhino and the brains behind the duo, is ready to hunt down the Turtles with his hammer-and-sickle weapon accessories.
