Indie toy retailer Midco Toys has partnered with Flair to release an exclusive series of Classic 1988 inspired Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles figures.

The toy vendor has secured exclusive distribution of the line, which will launch in the UK this June.

The range will include Donatello, Leonardo, Raphael and Michelangelo, along with Splinter and Shredder.

Each figure is based on the original 1988 release, using the original Playmates moulds for authenticity.

In anticipation of the release, Midco Toys will be offering pre-orders on the action figures, and in true Turtles style will celebrate the launch with a social media Pizza Party.

Midco Toys’ managing director, David Middleton, said: “Turtles have been our best selling action figure line over the past two years, and we are expecting fans to get very excited about these exclusive figures.”

Anne Marie Noone, marketing manager, Flair, added: “Midco Toys is the perfect partner for u to bring these classic action figures to the legions of Turtles fans in the UK.

“As a specialist retailer the team at Midco knows what its customers want and aims to deliver both on the sales and retailer experience sides.

“It has been 26 years since the original release of this classic series and we expect them to be in huge demand.”

The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Classic Collection will join Midco Toys’ abundance of collector friendly nostalgia lines.
