In case you weren’t aware, FBTB has a YouTube channel. It’s where we stick our video assets. We don’t produce much and I keep threatening to do video reviews but never have the time to get around it. Or the nerve to put myself in front of a camera. Yesterday, I finished editing and uploading video footage I shot of at Toy Fair showing off some play features of some of the upcoming sets. They’re not too long, averaging about a minute and a half each, but you can see bells and whistles of the sets in motion.

Forum member psycho013 spotted this new set, 79122 Shredder’s Lair Rescue, over at ToysRUs.com. It appears to be a new set that was not part of the showroom floor at Toy Fair, so my best guess is that this is an account exclusive. It’s not up on Shop@Home’s website, but it’ll probably go up when all the other March sets go up. Other than ToysRUs stores, you may be able to find it at LEGO Brand Retail locations.
A new year, a new crop of LEGO TMNT sets and they were awesome. Even the Michael Bay turtles looked kinda fun if you ignored everything you know and love about the ninja turtles. Before you click through, unfortunately we weren’t able to take any pictures of that line. I can say though that they translate well into LEGO form. They are using different molds for the characters than the ones from the movie. Splinter is re-imagined from the current cartoon. Shredder looks more or less the same. The sets look kind of fun, but like I said, you’ll have to let go of any history you may have of the franchise. Even then, you still have to contend with Michael Bay and we all know what he’s done with Transformers. Me personally, I don’t think I’d get any of the Bay turtles. Anyways, continue on if you wanna see what’s in store for the Nick cartoon license. I’ve added the set names, piece count, and price points for the Bay turtles at the end of the list. Enjoy!
Have you seen just the raw vomit that is Michael Bay’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles? I won’t post the images here for 1) once seen, cannot be unseen, and 2) I don’t want to sully the homepage. Rebel against the overbloated ego that is Bay and his ability to rend franchises into oblivion and treat yourself to some Nickelodeon TMNT toys. Amazon is currently discounting 79104 The Shellraiser Street Chase by 25%, bringing the asking price down to $44.99 before any tax if applicable. Set will ship for free. Granted it’s probably the worst set out of the current line, but it’s leagues better than anything Bay will do with the movie.
Target stores, and I assume online, is selling LEGO Super Heroes, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and Legends of Chima for 20% off starting today 12/22 through 12/24. Perfect timing if you’re on the hunt for the new Batman sets. Spend over $75, and you can use a $10 off coupon. Details for the coupon are online in their weekly ad. The 20% off may stack with the 10% off discount this weekend that Target is offering for the credit card hassle of the recent past. So, if you go out shopping today, it’s possible to save 20%, 10% and another $10 on top of that (if your order is $75 or more).
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.
