Told in the style of Playmates' Half-Shell Heroes action figure line, the storyline finds the four mutant Heroes in a Half-Shell turtles — Leonardo, Raphael, Donatello and Michelangelo - going back in time to the Jurassic Era, where they encounter friendly dinosaurs from the past and dangerous aliens from the future who have a nefarious plan of their own. However, things get even more complicated when Triceritons, Bebop and Rocksteady show up!

Unlike Nickelodeon's hit CG-animated TMNT series, "Half-Shell Heroes" will be 2D-animated (as you can see from the new poster above). Random House will also be releasing a "Blast to the Past" book (see cover below) this September, while Playmates will release new Dino toys in the Fall to coincide with the special.
