Who Wants TMNT Power Rangers Figures?

Recommended Posts

One of the things Hasbro talked about during the Power Rangers portion of their 2020 New York Toy Fair presentation, was the TMNT and Power Rangers crossover comic book series being done between Boom Studio and IDW. During the panel they showed images of what the four Turtles along with April will look like when they get their hands on a Morpher.

They also showed the Rangers themselves and what they would look like without a Morpher.

While there was no mention of toys based on this series to follow, we could see it maybe happening. While Playmates Toys remains the master toy license holder for TMNT, we have seen Nickelodeon allow other companies do TMNT figures in recent years. NECA has been doing a wide range of Turtle figures base on the old movies, video game and the original animated series. Then there were the recent Batman vs TMNT figures DC Collectibles did.

Hasbro is likely considered a more direct competitor to Playmates Toys than those other smaller companies, so negotiating a deal to do a Power Rangers/TMNT crossover line might be a little more tricky to negotiate between all parties concerned, but you never know.

Would you like to see someone release TMNT and Power Rangers mash-up figures? Let us know below in the COMMENTS SECTION below.

Coming from someone who grew up on Power Rangers and Ninja Turtles, this would be awesome. But as you said, it would be difficult for either Playmates or Hasbro (or both) to make figures based on them.

Also on a side note, the Batman vs. Ninja Turtles line were based on the movie and not the comics, so the fact there's only a comic version of this particular crossover, it might be even more unlikely.

But still, it would be awesome.

It is possible, there have already been several mashups in the past, but personally: meh! , I don't know how much demand could have something like that, and it would seem hilarious that Playamtes tried to pull something like that but not stuff geared toward collectors.

these designs look stupid and screw up the lore, so no i wouldn't want figures of them, when justin morphs he doesnt morph into a kid form cept for maybe a split second, and doggie doesnt morph with some dog head, yet the turtles morph into turtle shape? i'm not buying it, its clear who ever designed this outfits cared little for the PR lore, if anything they should have gave the turtles unique ranger outfits like the ryu and chun li from that bat in the sun fan videos.

Absolutely no interest in this.  Not at all. 

Concerning TMNT I was pleasantly surprised not to see playmates showing any TMNT at toy fair.  I think they are going to drop that hideous new cartoon and hopefully Nickelodeon is making a new series.  Sorry to anyone that likes the new show but I hate it.  I love the original, 2012, and I appreciated the other show that was CGI even though I never liked the look, just the stories.  

 

My my dream come true would be a reboot of the original show in a manner of the first season and sticking with a darker tone and edgy style.  I love the first season so much and I can go back to it frequently.  Hard to keep watching when they get too silly later.  I think society is ready for the to use their weapons and they could make it darker without having to get so silly.  The other thing that would help would be to keep a consistent voice cast.  Hardest thing about rewatching the original toon is when they essentially take their weapons away and the jarring changes in voices.

Last March when it was first announced that there was going to be a crossover comic book series from Boom Studio and IDW for Power Rangers and TMNT, we speculated how cool it would be if someone did figures based on this. Well now it looks like we might be getting those figures from Hasbro. JTPrime has dug up retailer listings for the following items:
 

Quote

-TMNT 2 packs PRG BLT PK A

-TMNT 2 packs PRG BLT PK B

-TMNT 2 packs PRG BLT PK C

-PRG BLT A SQD Venus

-PRG BLT A SQD Jupiter

-PRG FAN Boom Shredder


The 2-packs listed are thought to stand BLT - Boom Lightning Collection
.

Now even if the B is for Boom, meaning figures from the Boom Studio Comics, that doesn't necessarily mean they would be figures from the TMNT/Power Rangers crossover series. However the final figure listed shows FAN Boom Shredder. Possibly being released as a Fan-Channel exclusive, this one seems to indicate a Boom Studios version of the TMNT arch-villain Shredder.

Which if that is the case, it would seemingly make it more likely the other Boom 2-packs will also be based on this TMNT/Power Rangers Crossover series.

Only time will tell if this turns out to be the case, but based on these listings it definitely seems like TMNT/Power Rangers figures are much more likely to happen than when we originally speculated about them last year. We will be sure to update you when we learn more about these.

Oh No, I don't like this, it's too much, too gimmicky, I won't be a apart of this, it seems entirely unnecessary, it's like putting chocolate on a pizza, sure seems really fun and possibly exciting but it's overkill and in poor taste. I also don't get why doesn't each turtle turn into a ranger that represents their bandana color? why isn't donatello purple? , if they did the colors the same it would make way more sense, also well Shredder just looks like a lord drakkon, and April looks no different then any pink ranger. I am happy for any one who wants these, but I'm not on board.

Honestly, it’s not a must buy for me but definitely still interesting. I love the MMPR and the old movie and cartoon Turtles. I have questions though, Will the Turtle Rangers be shorter than standard Lightning Collection figures? How will the articulation work the the shell?
 

It’s interesting and if they staggered the releases I would buy the first release, even if it is a two pack, to check them out.

Easy pass for me. I'm a fan of both brands separately. Even putting them together in the same comic is fine. But crossing the characters into 1 design just kills my interest.

IF they were to make that Green Ranger/Shredder, I might find some use for that. Maybe like, a past version of the evil green ranger or something. But the Turtle Rangers, No Thank You.

how do we know that these will be the designs used for the figures though? they can just as easily use this license to finally give us comic accurate idw turtles. but im thinking its something else.

see the thing thats scary though is that one of the listings is named venus. remember live action turtles did appear in an episode of power rangers in space. and saban is who produced the next mutation show and hasbro now owns saban so hasbro is probaly able to make figs based on next mutation in lightning collection since they appeared in power rangers.

and we've already gotten andros, ashley, and carlos. if venus is a seperate release, that leaves the 4 turtles and cassie and tj, which would be the three 2-packs. jupiter is the only one i cant figure out, maybe a codename like they do for gi joe figs? could be ecliptor or alpha 6. or wasnt there a monster they fought in the episode too? im gonna have to rewatch this horrible episode so i can remember

We don't know anything for sure but if Hasbro were to do figures from the crossover its more likely they would be based on these crossover designs and not regular versions of the Turtles. Most likely if this all turns out to be true they would have the 2-packs include 1 turtle and 1 PR based on the designs shown above and there likely would be two more 2packs coming that the listings have yet to be discovered for.

Anyone worried about the Venus listing and/or thinking these are related to the Next Mutation/In Space crossover and not the MMPR/TMNT comic crossover I can set your mind at ease. The listing isn't the TMNT character of Venus from Next Mutation. Hasbro likes to use code speak for their Lightning Collection figures so leaked releases aren't easily known. Based on past releases the Ranger fandom discovered it was deduced that A SQD is code for A Squad, Venus is the code word for Yellow and Jupiter is the code word for Red. So in other words the Venus and Jupiter listings are for the Power Rangers SPD villains A Squad Yellow Ranger and A Squad Red Ranger. They have nothing to do with TMNT Power Ranger crossover figures.

There technically is, but they aren't considered within normal continuity. There was a one off "What if" story in which the main MMPR characters were captured in one of the comics, so Zordon temporarily recruited Bulk and Skull and they became MMPR Purple and MMPR Orange. After saving the other MMPR characters Bulk and Skull had their powers stripped and their memories were wiped.
