Break Out Of Your Shell With Bandai's Launching Turtle Toys
posted on by Bamboo Dong
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is raking it in at the box office, but they're not the only turtles worth checking out. If you've been keeping an eye on Bandai's capsule toy offerings, you may have seen... these.
No, they're not frogs. They're actually photorealistic turtles that dream of "coming out of their shells" and realizing their dreams as flying heroes.
They even have a theme song:
The line-up includes Midori Kame, a slider turtle; Semaruhako Kame, a yellow-margined box turtle; Zeni Kame, a Squirtle; Aoumi Kame, a green sea turtle; Akaumi Kame, a loggerhead sea turtle; and Taimai, a hawksbill sea turtle.
Each toy costs 200 yen (about US$1.95)
