There’s a new TMNT episode airing later today titled Follow The Leader. I couldn’t find a preview trailer so you’re stuck with the static image above. The synopsis is as follows:
The Turtles face an army of robot foot soldiers; Karai captures Leonardo and forces him to do battle with ninjas that can adapt to his every move.
Karai is back and is apparently kickin’ ass and takin’ names. Last season’s cliffhanger revelation is still fresh on my mind and I can’t wait to see how her relationship with Splinter plays out this season.

I was a little ticked at Warner Brothers this week after the news they were pulling DC Comics out of NYC and relocating them to Burbank CA, presumably to be able to hang out on the set of The Price Is Right, but all is forgiven now. The film is due February 7th, 2014. Just in time for Valentines Day, in case you were trying to come up with the absolute perfect date.
Bask in the glory of this new trailer for The LEGO Movie and see that it is indeed full of win!
Thanks for the heads up ninnymuggins. Again.
There’s a new episode of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cartoon airing today, Saturday, on Nick at 11am local time. Titled Invasion of the Squirrelanoids, we find the four turtles bringing a mutated squirrel back to their lair. And then, and this is just an assumption, hijinks ensues. Check out the clip above and tune in or set your DVR.
Remember that promotional Dark Turtle minifig from New York Comic Con 2012? Well, LEGO is bringing it back. In partnership with Pocket-lint, you can win one of five Dark Turtle minifigs complete with collectors card and a silver case. There are 400 of these limited edition figures, and each one is numbered. Pocket-lint is only giving away five, so there are 395 more to be had through various other promotions so keep your eyes peeled. Unfortunately, this contest is only open to residents of the UK. I don’t think they will use the same cardbard back as the NYCC figure since those ones weren’t numbered and had some promotional blurb about the line of toys coming out in January 2013. And plus, the skateboard had a sticker on top that had the NYCC logo on it. So it remains to be seen what exactly the case will look like.
Know of any other giveaways involving the Dark Turtle fig? Drop us a line and let us know.
Just a friendly reminder that the second season of the awesome Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles show premieres today at 11am Eastern and Pacific on Nick. We’ve reposted the teaser trailer above to whet your appetites. Season 2 will see the appearance of Casey Jones, adding another human ally to the group. Unfortunately it is unknown which episode it will but hopefully we won’t have to wait too long for him to make his debut.
We previously reported on polybag set # 30270 appearing in the wild, but now we have some more information to share. The set name is “Kraang Laser Turret” and it was part of a Create and Take event at select Toys’R'Us stores, most likely the same stores found on this list. But now, the sets are widely available in more stores and at Toys’R'Us online. They are part of a promotion at TRU where you will get a set for free if you spend $20 or more on LEGO products. Or you can just buy them for $3.99 each. Limit 5 per customer.
Another interesting polybag to pop up online is the 40077 Geoffrey the Giraffe polybag. This is a TRU exclusive set, costs $5.99 with no quantity limit.
And lastly, if you missed out the Chase McCain figure from Target for $1, you can buy him for $3.19 from TRU with a quantity limit of 20.

Check your DVRs! In a press release communicated yesterday, Nickelodeon announced the date for the season 2 premiere of their hit show Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. The show, titled The Mutation Situation, airs at 11:00am ET/PT on October 12, 2013 and has the turtles learning that the Kraang survived their previous encounter and has dropped mutagen canisters all over the city. Their mission throughout the second is to retrieve these canisters. Fans of the comic and previous iterations of the show will recognize the show’s newest star: Casey Jones, who will be voiced by Nick alum Josh Peck.
We’ve shown the trailer for season 2 before, along with a slew of other preview goodies, but we’ll post it here again, followed by the official press release.
I can’t wait!
Deux means two, for those of you who don’t speak French… like me. Chris McVeigh hasn’t slowed down in his creation of pop culture LEGO marker sketches and I’d be lying if I said I didn’t want to make exact copies of them and put my favourites up in a frame.
If you saw the season finale of Nickelodeon’s TMNT, then you know the stakes have been raised in the Turtle-verse and while many questions have been answered and truths revealed, resolution seems only a little bit closer if at all. Yay! Season two promises a host of new characters and IF you want to avoid spoilers you should probably skip the video above and avoid the jump below.
