Cowabunga, dudes! An announcement from Playmates Toys named Toys”R”Us as the exclusive and ultimate location for the “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” Classic Collection, which includes action figures and vehicles.

The collection will feature items that will take you back to when we first met Leonardo, Raphael and Michelangelo and Donatello in 1988. According to the press release, the six-inch action figures will “feature more than 30 points of articulation and are authentically detailed to appeal to the true action figure collector.” They’ll also include their weapons and a personalized sewer lid cover name base.

The six-inch original four will launch first and Bebop and Rocksteady will be released later this month. The four-inch action figures will be back too and will include not only the four main turtles but also Splinter and Shredder. The Foot Soldier and the Kraang will be released soon as well.

The pizza-loving mutants need to get around though, don’t they? The original group vehicle, the Party Wagon will also be available! It comes with “a radar dish and other techy gear, kids can open the top, place all the Turtles inside and they’re ready to roll!”

Another vehicle includes 2004’s Mech Wreckers. They’re described as, “real motorized walking battle suit figures that each come with the original Leonardo and Raphael action figures based on the look from the 1988 TV show.”

According to Manuel Torres, Senior Vice President Global Toys and Electronics for Nickelodeon Consumer Products, “We are thrilled to have Toys“R”Us as the official destination for our 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' Classic Collection. Reintroducing the nostalgic toy line links the original fan base, with a new generation of Turtles’ enthusiasts.”
