This new LEGO toysets called Turtle Van Takedown and Big Rig Snow Getaway have finally been revealed after the big trailer release in March. These sets are supposedly the LEGO [Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles](movie:323027) movie sets that were seen at Toy Fair 2014, but photographs of the toys were not permitted due to the spoilers that the pictures hold on the box art and character designs.
The artwork on the box covers also confirms previously leaked movie posters with the same artwork that were speculated to have been fan-made. The title Big Rig Snow Getaway toy set could actually be based on the action sequence we saw in the trailer of the turtles using their shells as sleds on the snow for a slick and slippery getaway.
Turtle Van Takedown - $39.99
Vern and Raphael are speeding through the city streets in the souped-up Turtle Van to rescue Michelangelo, but the Foot Soldier has lowered the barricade gate to block the road. Check the on-board computer to outwit it and accelerate to top speed to crash through the barricade. Open up the side doors to unleash the hidden flick missiles and fire the roof missiles to hit the gas tank and blow up the gate. When you find Michelangelo, release the mechanical arms holding him down on the stretcher and crank up the van’s Turtle Power to zoom away. Includes 4 minifigures with weapons: Vern, Foot Soldier, Raphael and Michelangelo.
Big Rig Snow Getaway - $69.99
The Turtles have come to the rescue of April and are escaping in the bad guys’ Big Rig truck. Karai and the Foot Soldiers are in hot pursuit in a super-slick black SUV so there’s no time to waste. Speed away with April hanging onto the side of the driver’s cabin. Grab your weapons then take the Turtle Power to the roof for a battle with one of the Foot Soldiers. Swerve to avoid the flick missiles fired from the SUV and tip ooze barrels into the bad guys’ path. When you’ve evaded the Foot Soldiers, open up the sides and roof of the truck to check out the amazing mobile lab! Includes 6 minifigures with weapons and an accessory: April O’Neil, Raphael, Leonardo, Karai and 2 Foot Soldiers.
The LEGO set descriptions such as these seem to be simple promotional stories to get the imagination of children pumping with endless possibilities, but could these descriptions actually be scenes we could actually see in the movie?
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles hits theaters on August 8th, 2014.
