Possible Animated Movie?
Posted Friday, May 30, 2003, 4:25 PM CDT by Nturtle
There is a possibility of 4Kids entertainment making an animated TMNT movie! I don't want to get any hopes up though, there has been no confirmation of this yet.
There are some new cards and other merchandise coming out, apparently based off of the first 10 episodes of the new show. Read about it here.
What it says is "This 100-card base set consists of 80 basic cards and 20 fight scene cards, all of which focus on episodes 1-10, leading in episodic order to episode 10, the first part of the two-part episode "Shredder Strikes." Includes 36 Puzzles (four in all, nine cards each) plus several inserts, including: 15 "Stand Ups," featuring mini-standees (1:9 packs); 10 "Raising Shell" cards, which look and feel like a turtle shell (1:9); and four "Ninja Masks," which consist of actual material that matches the color it appears in the show (1:36). Also, look for 125 Gold Parallel cards! 5 cards per pack. 36 packs per box. MSRP: $1.49 per pack. Scheduled to ship 07/02/03. (546) (CAUT: 3 & 4) NOTE: Not available outside the U.S. and U.K."

There also are some pictures of more new t-shirts which you can see, here.

New TMNT game
Posted Sunday, May 4, 2003, 12:32 PM CDT by Nturtle
The 9:00 repeat of "The Shredder Strikes Part 2" got a 2.5/9 in the ratings chart and the rerun of "Things Change" scored a 1.6/6 last week.

Apparently a gaming magazine came out with details and pictures of the new Ninja Turtles video game!! I donít have the magazine with me, but what Iíve heard is that it looks a bit like the new Zelda game, with the cel shading graphics. I may get the magazine tomorrow, then Iíll give more details. It seems to be a 3d ďbeat emí upĒ.
You can see a scan of it here. It looks preety cool, also you will be able to do combo moves with other turtles and learn new moves by collecting scrolls. It will be coming out for all the major platforms (PS2, X-Box, Gamecube). There will be a tournament fightining mode where you will be able to play Hun, Casey and Shredder in addition to the story mode. The game is 2 player, but all 4 can be called on screen for team attacks
