LEGO Announces Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

Here's another LEGO set you'll want to start saving up for.

It's no secret that we love LEGO around here. Hot off the presses, LEGO has announced a new license they obtained. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are making their way to the world of LEGO. As the announcements roll out of New York Comic Con, the first reveal from LEGO is the "Shellraiser Street Chase" set.

With the success of the current TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES comic from IDW and the new animated series on Nickeloeon, it's not surprise to see this license find its way with LEGO. The only question is, why has it taken so long?

So far we have word on one set. I'm sure we'll be seeing more unveiled soon. We'll have to make our way to the LEGO booth at NYCC each day to see what they unveil next.

Here's the official info on this first set:

Set Name: The Shellraiser Street Chase

Price: $59.99

Piece Count: 620

Minifigures Included: Leonardo, Michelangelo, Dogpound, Foot Soldier, Kraang Droid

Will be Available on: January 1 2013

The IDW title AND the new show on Nick are both Very good, though on opposite spectrums

Damn it. I hope they put them in separate minifig packs. I'd love for them to start doing that with their sets.

Back in 2010, I was on a campaign to buy as many Lego Batman sets as possible. What happened when I went to the stores? They were all gone. So this time I'm going to prepare to get all the TMNT ones. :D

i was a big fan of TMNT when i was a kid and i've wondered about all these new turtle cartoons and toys , where is Bebop and Rocksteady?

Did they lose the rights to them or do they just not appeal to kids now? I loved them, Leatherhead ,Baxter Stockman , Slash and all those crazy mutants.

LEGO TMNT video game please.

Nice! It would be cool to see a Lego TMNT video game and an animated one shot on TV! :)

Posted by RedheadedAtrocitus

Very nice, but I'd hold out for actual action figures myself.

OMG I am so getting this.

Posted by Beast_in_the_Shadows

I can't express how much I love this!!! I hope they make a set that comes with both Donnie and April.

I'm on this like white on rice!

Edited by RoninAutomaton

Awesome!!! Who the F* is Dogpound!!

I think they should have done an enlarged figure for the Krang-droid.
