Imagine the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles as Gundam-style mech characters. Well, over the last few days, a few images from HeatBoys and Snap Finger Animation have been circulating on social media showcasing just that. And you have to agree, Leonardo, Michelangelo, Donatello and Raphael haven’t looked this awesome in quite a long while.

The mechanised design of the Teenage Mutant Mech Ninja Turtles (or whatever the range will be called) seems to be the result of a Nickelodeon collaboration for an upcoming toy line, or maybe even something more. In fact, the first model (an unpainted prototype for Leonardo) based on these designs is on display at the Chaowan Exhibition at Shenzhen Futian Convention and Exhibition Center in China.
According to Alan Johnson, the Influencer Relations at Warner Bros. Games, each of these figures will be around 12 inches tall and just over 30 cm. That’s pretty big. And there’s no doubt that these collector’s items will definitely turn heads.
They exist! Well, a prototype does. This looks to be 12 inch. And there is a Shredder coming too! pic.twitter.com/rLbR2z4T8V

Here’s a closer look at the Gundam-style TMNT figures.
You have to agree that these Teenage Mutant Mech Ninja Turtles look pretty awesome. Let’s hope that this gets developed into a TV series or cartoon pretty soon. More importantly, let’s hope this toy line makes its way to our shores.
If fan reaction is anything to go by, these mech action figures are bound to be a big hit with consumers.
