NYTF 2014: Playmates

Playmates had a huge amount of floor space at the Javits Center. While other companies split their floor space into different lines, Playmates was a bit different. All of the Playmates are was dedicated to one franchise: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

So let’s delve into the Turtles experience that lay inside of the Playmates booth!

Inside there was a very cool city diorama with a huge assortment of the figure from the new Nickelodeon cartoon.
I am not up to date with the Nickelodeon cartoon, so I can’t name all of the characters. But with the large amount that was displayed, I imagine that Playmates pretty much showcased every character in the show so far.

Oh yea, there was also this zeppelin thing. No that’s not right. It’s a blimp. A Turtle Blimp, if you will. It is inflatable, just the like toy from the original cartoon’s line.

Also on display were the Z-Line Ninja Playsets. These zip-line playsets can be attached around the home to using 3M Command Strips (included in the set). The kids can then create elaborate zip-lining course for the turtles to experience. Each zip-line post serves as a chain-reaction piece. As one turtle reaches the post, it will cause the Turtle that was waiting at the post to be propelled through the next zip-line.

There was also a super-secret room in the back, where we got to check out the action figures and roleplay toys from the upcoming Michael Bay Ninja Turtles movie. No pictures or video were allowed, so you will have to just imagine what the Michael Bay turtles will look like as action figures.
