My Brain Just Exploded – Ninja Turtles LEGOs!

Holy crap, you guys. I literally started shaking when I saw this announcement. LEGO has secured the licensing rights to the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and they’re going to start producing LEGO sets at the start of the new year.

My inner child is bursting with joy

Granted, they’ll be based on the new Nickelodeon cartoon, and not the classic 1980s Ninja Turtles, but c’mon! Don’t hold that against them! What little they’ve revealed so far look positively amazing. I am an old school LEGO nerd from way back, and I can’t help but get giddy and excited every time LEGO announce a new geeky license. Star Wars, Batman, X-Men, Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter and more have all gotten the LEGO treatment. And once again I have to ask, why didn’t we have these awesome LEGOs when I was a kid? Why was I forced to use my stupid imagination? Gah!

But the injustices of my childhood aside, this is utterly brilliant. The Turtle mini-figs look adorable, and they each come with accurate weapons.

Leonardo is the best Turtle

The only actual playset they’ve announced so far is one that involves the new version of the Turtle Van (I think), but you can visit this website to see all of the various mini-figs they’ve shown so far at the New York City Comic-Con. I still hate the new version of Splinter, but the Turtles look great, as do the Shredder, Krang and new evil mutant Dogpound. Though personally, I’ll always be a fan of Bebop and Rocksteady.

And unfortunately, Krang appears to be just painted onto the shirt instead of being an actual removable brain. Oh well.

I’m going to start saving my money now and hope that LEGO gets around to making sets of the classic Ninja Turtles from the 1980s.
