These TMNT figures leaped right out of the 1989 arcade game

If you plan to attend Comic-Con International in July, your Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles-loving friends will soon be hounding you to pick up these convention-exclusive action figure box sets. They're probably already laying the groundwork with offers to drive you to the airport or to feed your pets while you're gone. Just so you know, there's an ulterior motive ...

Produced by NECA, the figures are based on Konami's 1989 Teenage Mutant Nina Turtles arcade game, which longtime fans could probably tell without even looking at the game-screen backdrop. (Note the "pixelated" details on each of the figures.)

Unfortunately, the two box sets -- one features the four Turtles and the other Shredder and the Foot Clan -- are truly convention-exclusive, as NECA has confirmed license restrictions prevent retail sales. Of course, if you aren't going to Comic-Con and don't have any kindhearted friends who'll stand in line at the NECA booth for you, there's always the chance you can buy the figures later on eBay, at the cost of only a couple of organs.
