The New York Comic Con reveal of Lego's new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
series was a welcome sight to fans who either weren't sold on the prior Mega Bloks brick toys, or missed them entirely. Judging by the reveal of multiple new TMNT Lego sets scheduled to arrive in 2013, the toys will also prove a huge boon to what is surely a near-nonexistent group of Lego pizza collectors (the 1994 "Pizza to Go
" set started me off on a dark path as a kid!). Joining the previously-revealed Shellraiser will be sets featuring Shredder, the Kraang, Fishface, April O'Neil, Baxter Stockman, Splinter, mousers and all kinds of Foot Clan ninjas. The hallmark of the line is easily the Sewer Lair playset, though. It's got almost all the playability of Playmates' massive TMNT HQ, at a much more manageable size for fans who may or may not have much space left in their residence for more plastic mutants.
Looking over the sets, I will say that I'm a little bit bummed not to see a Lego Metalhead Minifig in the mix. Patience being a virtue, however, I'll keep the faith that the robotic turtle might show up in later waves of the Nickelodeon TMNT series inspired line.
