Christopher Lee TMNT Poster

Do you want a chance to win this awesome new poster by artist, toy collector, and friend of the site Christopher Lee? The ink has barely dried on his latest masterpiece but he’s letting me give three posters away to coincide with an interview I’ll be running later this week.

Saturday Morning Central #1 – Blame it on the Kraang

Saturday Morning Central #1

Remember when the site used to be called Saturday Morning Central? Well, I couldn’t let that name die forever, and I finally found a new use for it. A podcast! While Bubble Pipe Theater is on hiatus, I thought it would be fun to start up a new show and try to get a bunch of my blogging buddies on board.

Saturday Morning Central is going to be a show for people like us; children of the 80s and 90s. Ok, so technically children of the 70s, 80s, and 90s, but I mean people who did the majority of their growing up in the 80s and 90s. You know who you are.

In the first episode, I’m joined by bloggers Jaime Hood of ShezCrafti and Shawn Robare of Branded in the 80s, and we geek out about the new Nickelodeon TMNT show. We talk about the style, the voice actors, nostalgia for the 80s cartoon, Milli Vanilli, and much more.

This Unofficial LEGO Party Wagon is the Coolest Thing I’ve Seen All Week

LEGO Party Wagon

On the heels of LEGO’s official TMNT announcement (complete with a Shellraiser van set), EuroBricks user LegoJalex has released photos of his retro TMNT Party Wagon LEGO set, and it is amazing. I never would have thought the Party Wagon would translate so well into brick form, but it did. With the help of some decals, LegoJalex created the perfect vehicle to carry your LEGO Ninja Turtles around in after they come out next year.

If we could only get our hands on some instructions and a parts list, I’m sure a lot of TMNT geeks would be rushing to the LEGO Store to get all the supplies needed to build this one.

He totally gets bonus points for building a mini ‘toy’ version for his minifigures to play with.

Check out more photos over at EuroBricks.

LEGO TMNT Set Photos!

LEGO TMNT Minifigs

LEGO went ahead and released photos of their TMNT sets and after I picked my jaw up off the floor I knew I had to post them. First off, the Turtles look great, even though they’re all the same shade of green. Raphael is perfect.

The Shredder is totally badass and may be one of my favorite minifigs ever.

There have to be a few more sets in the works, and I can’t wait to see what they are. I’m sure there will be some kind of Sewer Lair set, as well as a Foot Clan and/or Kraang headquarters. I’m sure we’ll find out soon. In the meantime, what do you guys think?

[Update] LEGO Announcing TMNT Sets Today at NYCC?

LEGO Pizza

Any readers of the ‘squatch going to be attending NYCC today? If so, make sure to scout out the LEGO booth, because FBTB received a mysterious LEGO pizza set in the mail today that makes a TMNT announcement seem pretty likely.

I received the above promo in the mail today and thought it was merely a promo piece for their first ever booth presence at New York Comic Con that kicks off tomorrow. Upon closer inspection, however, the bottom of the pizza slice box says “Box design and printing, Casey Jones LTD.” and it all clicked together, pretty much confirming what is going to be unveiled tomorrow at NYCC.

Anybody that snags one of those promo pizza slices (or any TMNT promos) for me gets a free THS t-shirt and my eternal gratitude. Hopefully later today we’ll have some solid news. I wonder if LEGO will just make sets based on the Nick show, or if they’ll go retro too? Could you imagine a LEGO Party Wagon or Technodrome?

Check out FBTB for the whole scoop.

Update! LEGO has released an official image!


I like some of it but it could be better. I’m sure there will be plenty of posts to come analyzing the upcoming sets. Stay tuned!
