First Look Trailer for Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

Rise of the TMNT

Today Nickelodeon released the first trailer for the next incarnation of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. These turtles are a bit younger, not as polished in their ninja skills and are not a cohesive team. It is a whole new look, lineup of their roles and more. This time around we have four different turtles. By different I mean the species for each turtle is distinct. I think that they picked great species to represent each turtle, especially for Raphael. He’s definitely a snapping turtle. My first thought on the new designs was that I wasn’t that impressed but the more I see them in action I like the look, especially Raphael. He’s my second favorite turtle but after this series, he may become my favorite. You can see the trailer below. Then below that is the full release from Nickelodeon.

We received a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Half-Shell Heroes Half-Shell Headquarters to play with and review. Opinions are 100% our own.

Andrew has been asking me for this toy for a while. He enjoys the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and knows that I am a big fan. He can name all of the turtles and was excited that he got a Leonardo figure at McDonald’s last night on his birthday. I had been meaning to switch out some of Andrew’s toys for the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Half-Shell Heroes that he has. Well, I did not get that done in time for his birthday but today we were able to clean up the toy area and make the switch. I’m glad that we did because Andrew loves the set. He and Eva were having so much fun flinging all the figures off the Headquarters. There are a ton of fun little play areas. Here is what you get with the Half-Shell Headquarters Playset

  • The Half-Shell Headquarters Playset, part of the Half Shell Heroes collection that’s designed specifically for preschoolers, has four levels of Ninja Turtle fun – with each level packed with surprises and new features to discover!
