LEGO Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is a series of LEGO minifigures and sets based on the Nickelodeon television show. The theme was released in 2013, though some sets were available in Toys R Us, the LEGO Store and Shop At Home as early as December 7th 2012.
- "We are thrilled to partner again with Nickelodeon to help bring Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles to a new generation of kids"
- ―Jill Wilfert, The Lego Group's VP of licensing and entertainment.
Upon the television show's success, The Lego Group had extended its global partnership with Nickelodeon to produce construction toys based on the series. The sets were showcased at the New York Comic-Con in October 2012. At the convention, there was a giveaway for an exclusive LEGO minifigure from the theme, along with a minifigure from The Hobbit theme. During it's first LEGO outing, an exclusive poster for the theme was available with a purchase of $25 or more on a TMNT set at various Toys R Us stores. In February of 2013, the release of the sets expanded, and began hitting retail shelves in the United Kingdom.
