Munchkin Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Up On Kickstarter

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
I’m sure that many of you, reading that line, three times in a row, read it in a very specific way in your mind.
Anyway, IDW and Steve Jackson Games have teamed up to bring you a new iteration of the Munchkin card game. In this one, they bring in those heroes in a half-shell, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. The set is up on Kickstarter now.

Lotsa people grouping together for this one. IDW has teamed up with Steve Jackson Games and Nickelodeon to bring you a new Munchkin set. In this case, it’s all about pizza, ninjas, and heroes in half-shells. Yes, it’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (every time I write that, the editor in me wants to put commas between the words).

IDW Games Announces TMNT: Shadows of the Past Hobby Challenge

Last weekend, the Crystal Brush Awards were held at Adepticon. I certainly wasn’t in danger of winning them. And I’m probably not in danger of winning the new TMNT: Shadows of the Past Hobby Challenge that IDW Games has launched over on their website.

Review Roundup

Well, it seemingly took an eternity, but it is now Saturday.

IDW Games Announces TMNT: Shadows of the Past Expansions

For those that watched the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cartoon, you know that their best human friend was the yellow-jumpsuit clad reporter, April O’Neil. She’s gone through quite a few iterations over the years, with her next one coming for the Shadows of the Past board game from IDW. Her expansion pack will be available soon.

Review Roundup

Hello Saturday! How are you? Is everything going well? Of course it is! It’s Saturday!

So, let’s not wait around. Let’s get right to the reviews so we can get back to it being Saturday. Personally, I’m thinking of watching a movie and questioning Netflix’s algorithms in what “more like this” really means…

Today we have: The Pirate Republic, Kingdomino, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Board Game – Shadows of the Past, Adrenaline, Ave Roma, Hero Realms, Food Truck Champion, Sorcerers’ Skirmish, Carcassonne: Amazonas, Oceanos, The Flow of History, Citadels, Broken Legions, Haspelknecht, and GKR: Heavy Hitters.

WizKids Previews Shredder Clone and Shredder Shark For HeroClix

… Comics really are weird.
So, clones are really no big thing anymore, really. We’ve had Dolly the sheep around for decades now. And comics make heavy use of them all the time. But then you’ve got Shredder Shark. It’s a shark! It’s an octopus! It’s a Shredder! It’s a shark and an octopus and a Shredder!
Because why the hell not?
Continue reading

WizKids Posts New Heroes in a Half Shell Dice Masters Preview

HeroClix isn’t the only set getting another Ninja Turtles set. WizKids also has a Dice Masters set coming down the pipeline. They’ve posted up a preview of some of the heroes you’ll be getting, as well as some of the Basic Actions you can be expecting.
Continue reading

WizKids Previews Foot Tech Soldiers For HeroClix

Dice Masters isn’t the only game getting a Ninja Turtles expansion soon. HeroClix will be getting their 3rd mutant-themed set when Shredder’s Return comes out. And what would fighting against Shredder be without fighting against Foot Soldiers? Nothing, that’s what. Well, the new set has plenty of new Foot Soldiers for you to line the field with.

WizKids Previews Heroes in a Half Shell Cards for Dice Masters

The characters in the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles world have gone through dozens of iterations since their initial comic release. Sometimes they’ve been a bit more dark and gritty. Other times they’ve been more lighthearted and kid-friendly. So just saying, “Ninja Turtles” can mean a lot of different things to a lot of different people. So, in order to give you a look at what you can expect in the upcoming Heroes in a Half Shell set for Dice Masters, WizKids has posted up this little preview.

WizKids Announces Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Dice Masters Set

Cowabunga, dudes! I very much remember growing up with the Ninja Turtles cartoon. I remember getting my first of the figures, too. And the games! Like the original one on the NES that was friggin’ impossible! That damn dam level! Gah! Well, WizKids is taking us down nostalgia lane with a new Ninja Turtles Dice Masters set (and unlike the NES game, this won’t make you want to punch through walls).
Continue reading

WizKids Previews Griddex and Shellectro For HeroClix

While the very first Ninja Turtles comic was meant to be rather dark and gritty, subsequent comic books about the group tended to be a bit more brightly colored. But I guess that shouldn’t be too surprising with Gallagher involved with things. Lord knows plenty of turtles got experimented on in those pages, and always with very different results. Such as we have with Griddex and Shellectro, two chase figures from the Heroes in a Half Shell set for HeroClix.

WizKids previews Karai for HeroClix

Those of us that only know the Ninja Turtles through the cartoon from the 80s might think that the Shredder was the supreme leader of the Foot Clan (and that said clan was made up entirely of robots). Such was very much not the case for the comic series. There were many in charge of the Foot Clan, and not all of them agreed with what the Shredder was up to. One of them is Karai, who we get a preview of today.

Heroes In A Half Shell Set Full Release Delayed Due To Shipping

Some of you might remember the shipping strike that happened a year or so ago and how that caused a ripple effect through much of gaming, as company’s had their containers stuck at the docks on ships while it all got sorted out. This year, we’ve got something not exactly the same, but the end result is similar. The Hanjin shipping company has filed for bankruptcy. “Yeah, so what?” you might say. Well, many gaming companies used Hanjin. That includes WizKids.

WizKids Previews Slash For HeroClix

No, WizKids isn’t doing a Guns ‘N Roses set for Heroclix… though that’d be friggin’ awesome!
Anyway, this preview is from the cartoon show. No, not the one I used to watch as a kid. Those were some of the previous previews. This time around it’s the 2012 animated series. We get a look at Slash.

New Ninja Turtles Preview For HeroClix Posted

Show of hands who watched the hell out of the Ninja Turtles cartoon back in the 90s. *raises hand and watches many other hands go up* Yeah, just as I figured. Well, WizKids is bringing more of those characters we loved so much in our youth to your tabletops now. We’ve seen some of the badguys already, now let’s get to the main team. We get a preview of all four Turtles.

WizKids Previews Rocksteady For HeroClix

I wanna roooock… steaaaaaady.
Steady-rockin’ all night long.
Ok, not really the same thing, but maybe I got a song stuck in 1-2 of your heads (if so, mission accomplished). The other day, we got a look at Bebop for the upcoming Heroes in a Half Shell set for HeroClix. And where Bebop goes, Rocksteady can’t be far behind. Well, here he is.

WizKids Previews Bebop for HeroClix

WizKids isn’t satisfied with just one set of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles HeroClix. They’ve been working on a second set, of which they’ve just started showing off previews. To begin, we get a look at one of the Turtles’ regular foes. He’s the gang member-turned-warthog, Bebop.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles DiceMasters Set Now Available

Cowabunga, dudes! If you’ve not gotten enough Ninja Turtles action lately, WizKids has another way you can get your heroes in a half-shell fix. Their Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Dice Masters set is now available.

WizKids Announces Ninja Turtles Dice Masters Set

The Ninja Turtles have just been seemingly everywhere lately. We’ve been getting the previews for the HeroClix set. There’s that board game from IDW. And now we’ve got a Dice Masters set that’ll be based on those heroes in a half shell. WizKids has posted up details of the new starter set for the game.
Continue reading

WizKids Previews Krang For HeroClix

While Shredder might be the first major villain people think of when they think of the Ninja Turtles, Krang is usually just behind. I mean, Krang was a talking brain with pointy teeth running around in a giant robot suit (though many of us, I’m sure, remember his little chicken-legged walker, too). Well, now the ruler of Dimension X will be coming to your tabletop in the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles HeroClix set.
Continue reading

WizKids Previews Renet Tilley for Ninja Turtles HeroClix

The Ninja Turtles have gone on a lot of adventures across a lot of different media. They started as a comic book, then there was the first cartoon, then video games, some movies, then more cartoons, and more comics, and just seemingly everything else in-between. They have a lot of allies and villains that I don’t know about, since I mostly stuck to the original cartoon. One I didn’t know about was Renet Tilley, but she’s on preview now for the upcoming HeroClix set.
Continue reading

WizKids Previews Rat King For HeroClix

Just because we got that one preview for the upcoming X-Men set doesn’t mean that we’re done seeing figures from the TMNT set for HeroClix. Oh no. There’s still more to be had, the next one of which is the Rat King. I remember having the toy as a kid.
Continue reading

WizKids Previews Fugitoid For HeroClix

It’s pretty amazing. We keep getting these previews for the upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles set for HeroClix, but all I can think of, whenever I see a new figure, are the old toys I used to have. Even Fugitoid, a character I don’t ever really remember from the old cartoon, but I did have the toy for. I didn’t remember his name. It was just seeing this new figure and thinking, “Hey… didn’t I used to have…” and then doing a bit of Googling. Anyway, here’s the next preview.
Continue reading

WizKids Previews Casey Jones for HeroClix

The previews of the allies that tend to pal around with the Ninja Turtles continues. There really were a whole group of them, when you stop to think about it. One of my personal favorites was the hockey-mask-wearing, baseball-bat swinging, vigilante that is Casey Jones. Of course he’d be getting a figure in this new set.
Continue reading

WizKids Previews Metalhead For Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles HeroClix

Cowabunga dudes and dudettes!
It’s time for another radical preview for the upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles set for HeroClix. We’ve seen all four of the turtles, but there’s a whole host of allies that make appearances with the heroes in a half-shell. One’s custom-made by Donatello to be his good friend. This preview it’s Metalhead.
Continue reading

WizKids Previews Leonardo For HeroClix

We keep making our way through the previews for the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles set that’s coming out soon for HeroClix. This time around we get the boy in blue… Well… eventually he came blue. He started out in red like all the others. I’m talking about the turtle with the katanas. It’s time for Leonardo.
Continue reading

WizKids Previews Michelangelo for Ninja Turtle HeroClix

Cowabunga, dudes!
It’s time for another radical preview from the most extreme Ninja Turtle HeroClix set coming out from those gnarly dudes at WizKids!
… I… almost feel bad that I do actually have a flannel shirt on, though I do not have a backwards baseball hat on.
WizKids really is showing off two versions of Michelangelo, though.
Continue reading

WizKids Previews Raphael From The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles HeroClix Set

While it bounces back and forth between Marvel and DC on a very regular basis, it’s important to not forget that HeroClix is open to any IP that WizKids can get (I’m still saddened that the Hello Kitty set apparently never materialized, just because of how funny that would have been). Well, that includes Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. The set is on its way and the first preview is up. It’s Raphael.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Board Game Launches On Kickstarter

*guitar*
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles!
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles!
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles!
Heroes in a half-shell.
Yeah… if you’re anywhere near my age, you only read those couple lines a certain way, and I’m sure the theme song to that cartoon series is in your head now. Well, it should be, because the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shadows of the Past board game is up on Kickstarter now.

IDW Games To Create Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Board Game

IDW Games has announced that they will be making a big-box adventure board game based on the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles license. (did anyone else just hear a guitar riff start up, or is it just me?) The game, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shadows of the Past, is scheduled to be released early in 2016 and will have sculpted miniatures representing the Turtles as well as villains such as Shredder.
