Forbidden Planet has struck a deal with Nickelodeon and Viacom Consumer Products to sell an exclusive line of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles merchandise in its U.K. stores and online.
The products, which range from T-shirts to coffee mugs to greetings cards, were previewed over the weekend at MCM London Comic Con. The line will officially launch June 6 with a party at Forbidden Planet's London Megastore.
Forbidden Planet also has stores in Birmingham, Bristol, Cambridge, Coventry, Croydon, Liverpool, Newcastle and Southampton.
Viacom purchased Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles in 2009 from co-creator Peter Laird for a reported $60 million. In September 2012, the company's subsidiary Nickelodeon introduced a new animated television series; within a year, TMNT consumer products had racked up more than $475 million in global retail sales.
