Images of Movie TMNT sets

Well, I guess I can’t keep saying that Canada has never given us anything*… Canadian retailer Indigo has listed two of the sets from the upcoming Shrek-sequel by Michael Bay, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. The fact that the box art is missing the critical “Teenage” and “Mutant” words worries me, but the sets are firmly in the “eh” category.

We get two sets, the 368 piece Turtle Van Takedown and 743 piece Big Rig Snow Getaway. The Turtle Van has a good name but strikes me as too small and not nearly turtle-van enough for my tastes (it’s like a big green tumbler that’s had too many pizzas). The Big Rig set seems like a decent big rig trailer, though the cab looks kind of phoned in. Maybe we’re kind of lucky that the Lego licensed sets seldom look like anything from the movie, and that’s why either of the sets could be dropped alongside the existing TMNT stuff.

But hey, I’m not even a big fan of the sets, so share what you think of them. And thanks to the several people that sent this in!

*I realize that Canada gave us William Shatner, Nathan Fillion, and John Candy, but I think we can all agree that they’re cancelled out by Mike Myers, Jim Carey, and Hayden Christensen. That’s to say nothing of dumping Beiber, Celine Dion, and Bryan Adams on an unsuspecting US…

I’ve been attending New York Comic Con since 2009. This year was my first time as an exhibitor, which was a completely new experience. I am a member of I LUG NY, the New York tri-state area LEGO User Group. A few months ago, LEGO community relations manager Jim Foulds approached us with the opportunity to create a fan display for the convention. We were asked to have Star Wars, Marvel, DC, and Lord of the Rings represented. A LUG member each took charge of a theme, and we worked in teams over many weeks to build a display. We adopted the MILS standard of building to produce a modular display that could be rearranged depending on what area dimensions we had to fill. It worked out great, and we are all really proud of the result.
