NECA Announce Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Action Figures Based On Konami’s Coin-Op Hit

NECA-Announce-Konami-TMNT-FiguresAs if you needed an excuse to purchase even more video game goodies! Action figure aficionados NECA have just revealed their upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles line up, all of which based on Konami’s 1989 arcade smash hit.

This isn’t the first time NECA have dipped their toe in retro gaming waters. Over the last few years they’ve released stunning takes on the Nintendo NES outings of Batman and Contra, with the action figures coming in replica game boxes. When it comes to Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles though, NECA have a reputation for creating some of the greatest figures in the franchise to date - something which will no doubt continue here.

What makes this latest reveal from NECA stand out from their prior video game creations is that the pixelated look and feel of Konami’s classic is being replicated on the action figures. Alongside the four heroes will be a selection of different ranked Foot Soldiers, and an appearance from Shredder too.

According to NECA’s blog, these figures are due to be sold as an exclusive set at San Diego Comic Con. While there may not be a general sale for these (just yet, we hope), we’ll be keeping a close eye for sets appearing on eBay.
