Toy Fair Yields Just A Few More Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Movie Details - A Big Rig, Karai And More

tmntThough photography was both forbidden and difficult to pull off illegally in any case, our roving eyes on the floor of the London Toy Fair today have this evening filed a report on the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Lego.

The takeaway point, for me, is that senior Foot Soldier Karai had a mini-fig on display when many other characters didn’t. I’m therefore guessing that she has a decent sized part in the film.

Here’s a bit of first hand, eye-witness testimony.

There were three movie sets from the Turtles movie: Turtle Van Takedown, Big Rig Snow Escape and The New Turtle Lair. The Turtle movie minifigs were on display and so close to the cartoon themed ones the design differences were obvious. They were certainly darker, literally darker, a darker shade of green and chunkier.

The Splinter figure was chunkier too and had shortened legs to make sure he stands lower than Turtle height. None of them looked too friendly either. You certainly won’t mistake the movie and TV versions of these characters.

I asked a little about and was told some things about the other sets that I didn’t get too good of a look at. One is a motorbike chase with Karai, another is a submarine set and there was also the Turtles’ T-Rocket too, but as far as I could tell, these were tie-ins to the show and not the movie.

Thanks again to our Little Bothan Bleeder.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is due in cinemas this August. I don’t even want to guess when we’ll get our first, public look at the characters (I’ll admit that I’ve seen a crummy publicity pic of them already, I wish I could share it – why all the bandages, Raphael?) but it might be a while just yet.
