Exclusive TMNT Bebop and Rocksteady Action Figures Launched at Walmart


Even in the original 90s cartoon iteration of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, the bumbling dynamic duo Bebop and Rocksteady were already the most popular villains, despite the fact that they aren’t exactly effective (not because they’re not strong – they are – but because they have the IQ of a rubber stopper.) The same might happen when the duo returns to the series to the fore via the current series on Nickelodeon, which is why it’s not surprising that Nickelodeon and Playmates Toys will be launching Bebop and Rocksteady action figures this month.

The catch? The launch is a Walmart exclusive. Mid-November, the two action figures will go on sale exclusively on Walmart, leaving your options limited if you want to get your mitts on these sweet, sweet figures.

Both figures stand 5” tall and are fully articulated and uniquely sculptured to match their on-screen counterparts. Each figure will come equipped with unique accessories and wll be compatible with most of the vehicles and playsets in the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles toy line.

“Partners in crime Bebop and Rocksteady have been fan favorites since the original animated series debuted in the 1980s,” said Karl Aaronian, Senior Vice President of Marketing, Playmates Toys. “We’re thrilled to have had the opportunity to update the characters for a whole new generation of kids and original Turtles fans to enjoy.”

“Fans old and new alike have been waiting for these two great villains to make their big return, and the time has finally come,” said Manuel Torres, Senior Vice President, Global Toys and Publishing, Nickelodeon. “Turtles is having such incredible success on TV, in toys and across movie theaters worldwide, and adding Bebop and Rocksteady to the mix will just ratchet up the energy even higher.”
