On Sunday, November 22, an all-new TV special, titled Half-Shell Heroes: Blast to the Past, will air on Nickelodeon. The one-hour special takes the Half-Shell Heroes back in time to a prehistoric era for a wild adventure. The Turtles and their pizza-loving prehistoric pets must stop a sinister alien dino race from changing the Earth’s future forever.
To coincide with the new TV special, Playmates Toys, the company behind the popular Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles toy line, is introducing a collection of dino-themed toys. Kids will now be able to re-create adventures seen in the TV special or they can let their imaginations run wild to create their own adventures with the Turtles and their new dinosaur friends!
The new collection is an extension of the Half Shell Heroes preschool segment, which features toys with bright colors, fun expressions and safe play features for smaller preschool hands. The new dino-themed Half Shell Heroes collection includes a variety of 2-packs, with each pack containing a 2.5-inch Turtle action figure dressed in a caveman-style and a fully poseable dinosaur.
The Dino-themed Half Shell Heroes 2.5-inch figure 2 packs are available in the following assortment:
- Leo & Triceratops
- Donnie & T-Rex
- Mikey & Brachiosaurus
- Ralph & Pteranodon
The toys are recommended for children ages 3 and up, and the 2-packs are available now at major retailers for $6.99 each.
