Update (11/15): TODAY's Dylan Dreyer got an exclusive first look at the floats in the Macy's parade studio in Moonachie, New Jersey, on Nov. 14 with Will Coss, the executive producer of Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.

"All the floats here at the parade are about 12 months of work, from early design sketches all the way through our engineering phases," Coss said on TODAY. "Then we head into our internal structural developments, our carpentry, our paint, our sculpt. Everything you'll see here today is hand-painted, hand-sculpted, hand-fabricated by the talented artists here at Macy's studios."

During a tour of the new floats, Dylan was surrounded by the four Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles on the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem by Nickelodeon & Paramount float, a two-story structure that stands about 28 feet tall.

During the parade, Leonardo, Donatello, Raphael and Michelangelo will scale the float, but before it arrives in Manhattan, it must be transported through the Lincoln Tunnel. The float has 11 hinges installed to be able to fold down and fit through the tunnel.

A new vehicle is also set to roll down the streets of New York City: the Good Burger Mobile!

"(It's) not every day there's a giant burger vehicle making its way down the parade route but we're excited to welcome our friends at Good Burger celebrating Good Burger 2," Coss said. "It's the largest burger that's ever been a part of the parade — 5,000 pounds in its true form, which is about 1,500 actual little Good Burgers."

Good Burger 2 stars Kenan Thompson and Kel Mitchell will join the vehicle on parade day, Coss said, and TODAY's Al Roker chimed in that he has driven the vehicle himself.
