Nickelodeon/Viacom Consumer Products have teamed up with cult merchandise store Forbidden Planet to produce a line of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle merchandise inspired by the original Fred Wolf animated series. Boasting the iconic chubby faced Turtles that many will remember from the 80s and 90s, the line includes t-shirts, posters, cards, homeware and more. Although the line will be available to purchase from the chain from Saturday 6th June, limited advanced sales were available at this past weekend’s MCM London Comic Con. The current incarnations of the heroes in a half shell even stopped by to show their support.
“We’re excited to partner with Forbidden Planet for the first time on a range that gives a nostalgic nod to the original series,” said Marianne James, VP Consumer Products UK & Ireland & European Retail Sales & Marketing Viacom International Media Networks. “As a family brand it’s fantastic to have a new line of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles products which appeals to adult fans in addition to our licenses that cater to our kids’ audience.”
