Welcome back to Toy Aisle, io9's weekly roundup of the fanciest toys around. This week we’re already hiding our wallets from amazing SDCC exclusives, plus Hot Toys teases its next Wonder Woman figure, Thor: Ragnarok comes to Lego, and a Transformer turns into a giant medieval dragon. No, really!
Look, I’m as surprised as you are that the Ninja Turtles apparently have a cookbook coming out filled with suitably wacky pizzas. Don’t they order takeout to the sewers more than anything? But hey, if you ever want to recreate the TMNT in your own kitchen, do we have the goofy book for you—no grimy sewer pizza…
The Super Nintendo is best remembered as defining the 16-bit era of video gaming, although many of us spent countless hours playing with Mario Paint instead. But that pales in comparison to the over four months Mike Matei spent recreating the opening to the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ animated series using only the…
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows may have been bizarre, entertaining, and surprisingly okay, but it wasn’t enough to keep the franchise alive.
It’s a good time to be a silly superhero, with Amazon producing a brand-new Tick series, Section 8 making a dingus of the Spectre a few Wednesdays ago, and a new Slapstick comic from Marvel this fall. Let’s celebrate with this immense ranking of characters created to mock Superman, Batman, and the rest. Because they…
Seriously. Watch this Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles short by Vasquez, titled “Don vs. Raph,” which debuted at San Diego Comic-Con. It combines Vasquez’s signature style with the turtles’ own brand of humor, creating a surprisingly awesome six-minute experience that could easily be expanded to a weekly TV series.
It may look like it’s made of the crazy “Tranformium” nonsense from Transformers: Age of Extinction, but that’s definitely Krang’s Technodrome making its debut in this new trailer for the sequel to 2014's live-action TMNT movie, Out of the Shadows.
Honestly, considering the overall turgid quality of the movie, the first entry in the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reboot did a fine job with Shredder. As you can see above, the costume design was absurdly excessive. So many superfluous blades! But hey—it looked a lot like a contemporary Shredder. The sequel, however,…
There’s a new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles board game up on Kickstarter. It’s already been funded, so don’t sweat, it’s getting made. Which is cool, because it sounds like the perfect TMNT game.
My second and final full day at my very first Toy Fair 2016 in New York City has come and gone, and already I miss it terribly. Nothing flipping through photos of Nerf guns, Pokemon plushies, Final Fantasy figures, Monster High dolls, Transformers, Marvel heroes and more can’t fix.
The X-Files returns for a new season after 13 long years! The weirdest DC show yet debuts with Legends of Tomorrow! Agent Carter and The 100 return, Heroes: Reborn ends, and saints be praised, The Flash fights the Turtle! Heaven and Hell converge to create one Shangri-La, on this week’s TV!
And I don’t just mean that they don’t have the creepy human eyes and unfathomably disturbing human lips or teeth of the Michael Bay-produced Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movies. I mean their limbs and heads actually somewhat resemble an actual turtle’s.
This week’s Guardians of the Galaxy animated short gives us more time with Rocket Raccoon while killer bears attack Paris and Zoo. Face Off celebrates its 100th episode with creepy couples’ makeovers, and everyone guest stars on Rick and Morty — and we do mean everyone.
What’s old is new again. Unfortunately, it’s also pricey.
Greetings but no salutations, my friends! We have no time for salutations because we have important things to talk about! Why is Michael Bay allowed to turn TMNT into softcore porn? What the hell is happening to Sansa on Game of Thrones? And, most importantly, why do I hate Batman? (Answer: I’m secretly Egghead.)
There’s been a weird abundance of news regarding the Michael Bay-produced sequel to the live-action Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie over the last 24 hours. Bay’s given us the first look at Arrow’s Stephen Amell as Casey Jones, an Oscar winner has joined the cast, and also holy @#$% what is Megan Fox wearing
Tyler Perry, seen above in his non-pivotal role in Star Trek, has just been cast as the evil, Mouser-creating scientist Baxter Stockman in the increasingly crowded Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles sequel. I have no strong feelings about this one way or another.
Beloved comedy duo Key & Peele had a fantastic idea for a sketch that they couldn't get produced, but thankfully it's been recreated in animation. And if you loved '90s movie anthems — TMNT: Legend of the Ooze-style — you're going to love Key & Peele's "Aliens on the Run."
