Two of the most powerful brands in the action figure business, Nickelodeon’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and WWE, have joined forces for a one-of-a-kind collaboration, Ninja Superstars. The co-branded action figures featuring the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles suited up as iconic WWE Superstars were revealed during New York Comic Con today.
Playmates Toys, the longtime master toy licensee for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, developed the Ninja Superstars action figures to give fans the opportunity to take the Turtles from the sewer to the ring and determine who will be crowned the next champion of the sewers. The Turtle figures are highly detailed to capture the signature look of each WWE Superstar. Each figure stands 6” tall, is fully articulated and comes with full ring gear and all the sewer slam accessories needed to perform knockout ninja moves to take down any opponent.
Nickelodeon’s ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles—Rise of the Super Shredder’ panel, which took place earlier today at the Hammerstein Ballroom during New York Comic Con, featured a special appearance by WWE Hall of Famer Sting who unveiled the new figures.
The Ninja Superstars assortment from Playmates Toys, which will be available exclusively at Walmart in early November, includes the following:
Leonardo as WWE Superstar John Cena
Raphael as WWE Hall of Famer Sting
Donatello as WWE Superstar Undertaker
Michelangelo as WWE Hall of Famer “Macho Man” Randy Savage
This isn’t the first time the WWE and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles have teamed-up. Most recently WWE Superstar, Sheamus featured in the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows sequel as well starring as villain Rocksteady.
