These Mondo figures look like they’ll be very accurate to the comics versions that were featured in the 1984 – 1985 Mirage run of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. The 11″ tall, 1/6 scale Turtles will make their debut at SDCC2015. I think I’ll keep an eye out for at least one, I have a 2003 12″ Raphael that could be replace by one of these 😉
From USA Today: Ninja Turtles figures (price TBD).
“After Mondo dipped its toes in the toy business beginning last Comic-Con, this summer brings the first in a new series of toys based on the original TMNT comics of the 1980s. First up is Leonardo, who stands 11 inches tall and comes with a bunch of accessories including weapons, a blue mask to match the cartoons and a red mask from the comics. Also on display will be the upcoming figures of Donatello, Michelangelo and Raphael.”
I found this to be a very fun moment, possibly one of the best, from any video coverage of this year’s Comic-Con International. From what I can see, Tom Hiddleston was truly enjoying himself reprising his role as Loki.
So, again, we bid a fond farewell to the San Diego Comic-Con. Once more I have not been an attendee. No worries though since there were some great stories and some even greater people willing to share their experiences almost real-time. It is the power of the Geek. It surrounds us, connects us and binds the Multiverse together. So I would like to thank my fellow Geek Brothers and Sisters for the time that they took sharing and keeping the rest of us up to date on everything bit of news that the SDCC had to offer.
I cannot wait! Ultron is the proverbial “bad penny”. He just keeps turning up. In this movie game of Go Big or Go Home, this is exactly what will be needed to go bigger than the first movie. This reveal makes me happy that they are pulling from the old Avengers mythos and not some of the newer stuff. I believe that I am, now, more excited for this film than the upcoming Star Wars movies.
SDCC: Warner Bros. Announces “Superman/Batman”
I should have seen that coming. The heat will be on who ever will be playing Batman though. Toward the end of the article they neglected to, once again, give Bill Finger credit for co-creating Batman. Come on CBR, you are better than that.
