Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Mecha Figures in Development by Snap Design and HeatBoys

Nickelodeon has teamed up with Snap Design Development and HeatBoys for a brand new line of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Mecha Figures! An unpainted prototype for Leonardo as well as art cards featuring concept art for for Donatello, Michelangelo, Raphael, and Shredder.were on display at the Tencent QQ “Trend Play” Exhibition which was held at Shenzhen Futian Convention and Exhibition Center in China from May 1st to May 3rd. New images have also been posted by Snap Design on their Weibo page.

They look to be roughly 1/6 scale figures, but exact size of the figures wasn’t revealed at the time of this writing. The Leonardo figure is about 9″ tall, with the Shredder expected to be a little over 8.5″ tall.

The line is reportedly titled Snap Anime Alloy Armor Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

Fans may remember Snap Design as DreamEX, who produced a series of really nice looking TMNT 1/6 Scale Figures a few years back.

The Snap Toys Alloy Armor Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Action Figures are the mutant turtles as mechas. Aka, TMNT robots. Though, this isn’t the first time the Turtles have been turned into robots, but these has a lot of Gundam vibe in them.

The TMNT mechas, each about 23 cm ( 9 inches) tall, are posable and boasts alloy material skeleton and outer armor. Each figure will come with a 4-inch, fixed pose “pilot”. Key figures include the four protagonists: Michelangelo, Donatello, Leonardo, and Raphael. According to Snap Anime, a 22 cm (8.7 inches) alloy Shredder Mecha is also in the pipeline.

Alan Johnson, one of the directors of Warner Bros. and who handles relationships with influencers, revealed an additional photo. There you can see one of the models of these Gundam-style Ninja Turtles, in their prototype form.

Not sure when it hit the markets, but when it does, expect each figure to run you back at “under 1,000 yuan” (or around US$154).
