It seems like new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles collectibles are vying for our attention every other week, but these figures from Bandai’s S.H. Figuarts line will undoubtedly earn a special place in the hearts — and on the shelves — of fans of the original cartoon.
Looking as if they stepped out of the television screen, circa 1987, the Leonardo and Donatello figures stand 6 inches tall, and feature interchangeable hands and faces, plus custom accessories (Leonardo comes with swords, holsters and a manhole cover, while Leonardo has his staff and a pizza slice).
Priced at about $60 each, they’re set to arrive in August.
The bad news, at least for fans in the United States, is that they’re exclusive to Japan, at least for now. That means you’ll either have to hope they’ll make their way to North America, or call in some favors.
Update: Bluefin has announced the Leonardo and Donatello figures will be available this summer in North America for $63 each.
