Midco Toys announces exclusive TMNT figures

Published on: 26th June 2014

The figures, based on the original Playmates moulds from the first-ever release, will be on sale exclusively at Midco and Toy Planet from Tuesday 1st July.

The action figures will be available to buy in-store at Toy Planet in Derby and Midco Toymaster in Burton-on-Trent. Each store will have a fully themed Turtles section with a full range of products, in anticipation of the upcoming movie. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are the bestselling action figure range in-store.

Hundreds of the exclusive action figures have already been pre-sold online, and fans who placed orders can expect their retro figures to arrive between the 1st and 4th July. The exclusive Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles retro action figures are available to buy from Midco Toys either on eBay or Amazon, with a discount for buying the full set of six.

Graham Hancock, sales supervisor, said: “There are many great action figure lines from the 1980s and 1990s, but the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are looked on with a particular sense of nostalgia. These action figures will appeal to adult collectors who remember the originals, and children who want to expand their existing Turtles collection.”

The release of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Retro action figures follows the successful launch of Midco Toys’ exclusive Loom Twister products.
