Nickelodeon holds vote to send TMNT into space

Published on: 8th February 2016

Nickelodeon & Viacom Consumer Products (NVCP) is promoting season four of the animated series and the new range from GP Flair.

TMNT480Turtles fans can vote for Leonardo: Space Captain, Donatello: Space Scientist, Raphael: Space Battler or Michelangelo: Space Traveller to take a trip into space. Votes can be made at Nick.co.uk, Nicktoons.co.uk on Nick Play on Android or iOS. Voting will close on 29th February with the winning mutant’s epic journey recorded and made available online in late March.

“Sending a Turtle into space is a brilliant way to highlight both the new series and the fantastic new line from GP Flair. The success of Turtles products has been metaphorically stratospheric since launch so it is only fitting that we finally get around to literally putting a Turtle into space. My vote is for Mikey,” said Marianne James, VP, consumer products UK & Ireland & European retail sales & marketing, Nickelodeon & Viacom Consumer Products.

“Fans will be able to vote from all four Dimension X Turtles that are available in our new spring 2016 collection which is already available in toy stores,” said Anne-Marie Noon, boys’ marketing manager, GP Flair. “They come complete with everything they would need for a stellar adventure including space helmets, gravity belts and of course weapons adapted for their new galactic surroundings”.

The latest Turtles figures from Flair Plc, are the most detailed ever with articulation, a special Dimension X theme and suits for all the Turtles. The figures are the perfect replica of the Ninja foursome from the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles TV series.

The video starring the winning space-bound Ninja will be released to coincide with new episodes of the series in April.
