We were just talking about 2013 LEGO themes, (see: 2013 LEGO Theme Mystery – What is This?) so I thought to add this other interesting bit of news to the list: LEGO Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles!
There has been rumors circulating about a LEGO Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles theme for some time now, that a source from the LEGO Users Group in Singapore recently solidified. According to member chongcheng a staff of a local LEGO shop said that LEGO Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles key-chains will be coming soon, which of course could only mean sets as well!
Currently there is no information about specific LEGO Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles sets, except that they will be based on the new TMNT series debuting this September on the Nickelodeon TV channel. LEGO has worked with Nickelodeon before on SpongeBob SquarePants, which makes the whole idea of Ninja Turtles even more likely - although remember that until we get confirmation from LEGO, this news remains in the rumor category.
Please note that the image above is NOT an official LEGO image, but a project on LEGO CUUSOO, I just thought to add it here for reference. KeTi’s version of the LEGO Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is based on the original TMNT series, not the upcoming remake, but it still gives you a decent idea of what the famous Turtles could look like. And here is a poster for the upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles animated series:
