I'm planning to play Mutants In Manhattan soon. I've heard (and seen) good things.

This is my kind of thread. My mom still likes to tell the story of how when I was 3 I would point at sewer grates and say turtle. I was looking forward to that recent game until the reviews came along. A real shame.

Someone mentioned Manhattan Project on NES being he best, I completely agree as far as console games go. Turtles in Time looks better and has more animation but I don’t think it’s as solid a game. Both fantastic though. Of course, actually playing an arcade cabinet with a few friends is the best.

I too own the Coming out of their Shell tour and the making of the movie vhs tapes. I’m not ashamed to admit that.

I know this is a game forum, but did anyone else have the pizza shooting tank toy? I think it ran on about 6 D batteries and it broke after a couple uses. Awesome while it lasted though!

These were mine when I was a kiddo. My son now sleeps & plays with them :) . Figured you guys would appreciate.

Timeframe would've been 89 to 91 ish on plushies & pillow. #23 is obviously a nod to Michael Jordan. That one is likely more around 95 or so.

I also have some plastic TMNT action figures I can post later also.

I used to have a Leonardo of that plush just above. I still though have an original Splinter toy with the cloth, belt, bow and arrow too with it. Much of my 80s toys are gone, very little I've bothered to recover outside of going overboard on G1 Transformers. :)

I do wonder if that arcade game that's coming will be any good or not as it seems most arcade games now are just kind of early 80s throwbacks where scores = tickets for prizes or just click bait garbage for prizes, or interactive experiences along with a few light gun type games.

I have a bunch of TMNT figures in a duffle bag and have the Turtle Van and some other figures plus the DVD series Van out in the other room on display. I used to have the sheets posted above as a kid.

That looks like it could have potential. Finger crossed!

I definitely had the van also. I might've had the tank that shot pizzas or at least remember playing with one at a friends.

Tonight I ran across my awesome TMNT rain slicker. Judging by size, likely 1994ish. Will eventually get you guys a pic of that & my toys.

Getting back to games which I haven't mentioned yet, TMNT II on NES makes my top 5 most played games list without question. Definitely in my top 3 nostalgic games as well. Likely in my top 10 games list which tends to change periodically.

I really wish Konami had made a port of the Turtles arcade game for the PC Engine/TurboGrafx 16. That would have been an excellent platform for it.
