New TMNT Retro Collection Announced

The Retro Collection is back!

Remember few years ago for the 25th anniversary of TMNT, Playmates Toys released a series of original turtle figures from the 1987 cartoon series?  Now Playmates are planning to release these figures again as a new line of retro Turtles toys under the Classic Collection banner.  Most importantly, we’re getting the Party Van this time around.

We’re getting the original 4 turtles with Shredder and Splinter.  As well as the Party Van and two Turtle Mechs.  I don’t remember what the Turtle Mechs are, but the figure will be $12.99 and the Van is $59.99.  You can now pre-order them from Toys R’ Us, and they’re slated for an August 27, 2013 release date.

It’s stated that both Krang and FOOT soldier would be released eventually as well.  But it seems like they’re being cautious on how these figures are going to sell first.
