Announced at Toy Fair 2014, but no pix as of yet.

There is a small glimpse of a character in the very lower left, but I'm not familiar enough with the new show to tell who it is...

This might be the most excited I've ever been about a new Minimate license!

YEESSSSS !!!!

Can't wait to see what they have planned. I imagine it's the 4 Turtles, Shredder, Splinter, Karai & Krang robot for the first wave.

It's the Foot Bot. Robotic Foot Solider. Hopefully they can switch between normal foot and foot bots.

Oh boy.



I've never been a fan of the cartoons, just the comics and [most] movies.



It seems most fans were initiated by the cartoons so this might be a Real Ghostbusters-style pass for me or another gotta-have-'em-all line for me.



Hopefully there's something for everyone.

It has its grating moments, but I really dig the new cartoon, and have gotten all of the figures so far (I even have armies of Foot & M.O.U.S.E.R.s). I'm excited!

This is going to be incredible. This is definitely the most I've been excited for a new license. I haven't seen the new show...but I can't complain about this.

I thought I read that they didn't have anything to show, just had a card announcing them.

This could one day be bigger than Marvel Minimates.

I want to go on record now demanding a Mighty Mutanimals box set. I'm willing to wait up to 5 years for this to happen, but not a day longer!

Super Shredder that was made for me. I want Bebop and Rocksteady, also Alt Turtles costumes is endless. Oh and a sexy April O'Neil.

I LOVED that comic. I actually read more issues of that than TMNT.

I really hope this does lead to them doing the classic cartoon. Heck, do 'em all, I'll buy 'em all. Classic comics (they could do a con-exclusive B&W box), classic cartoon, live action movies, CG movie, 2002 cartoon, the new movie. I will buy them all.

That's awesome.

This rocks! My kids and I love watching tmnt every week and we often pop in the DVDs to watch the originals! My largest toy collection as a child was tmnt so hopefully we get some classic stuff too

I loved the original cartoon as a kid. I haven't gotten to see any episodes of the new one yet, but I will definitely be picking up the 'mates.

So, this upcoming line is based on the Nickelodeon new series, not the classic one? Sorry if that's already been answered somewhere. I'm a little disappointed if so, but maybe it will open the door to Classics as well.

I'm curious how these will be constructed... will they just be standard mate limbs and a turtleshell chest cap, or will they have slightly bulked-up, "anime-style" hands and feet?

I'm excited for these! They should be a fun license.

Omgomgomgimfingifnhsgagsywnahsbsh.... Dead.

I'm so pumped I wake up little kid style on the weekends for my cereal and turtles all thanks to this newest rendition. It's amazing and I'm so pumped for mates for it!

While I'm ecstatic for this line, I wish it was the Eastman and laird version, or even the IDW version, I hope that they could make vehicles such as the shellraiser.

While I love the new show (actually more than the original), I think classic sets (ala Thundercats) are more geared to 'mates. That and the old-school "shell-raiser" just screams Mini-vehicle! Oh well, I'm in!

I'm not sure they had anything shown at Toyfair. I saw pictures of Plants vs Zombies (that I believe were above the TMNT display) and in a few pictures it looks like you can see the basic 6" TMNT figures. If that's the case, I assume they just had them to show off the design the minimates would be emulating

Nevermind, looking at other pictures, I think I was seeing the bust banks, not 6" playmates Turtles

I'm excited for this line and will probably be buying every single figure

YESSSSS YESSSSSSS YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS

I had always kept myself from hoping DST was ever going to make TMNT mates, for fear of being perpetually disappointed every year that they weren't announced.
But this makes me so happy! Life could leave a massive flaming turd on my head and I wouldn't mind so much, because I'm getting TMNT minimates biggrin.png


can you tell I'm excited?
