Playmates Toys and Netflix will unveil Stranger Things Upside Down Remix, a limited-run action figure collection that pairs up the monster-hunting heroes from Hawkins, Indiana, with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, the pizza-loving crime-fighters from New York City’s sewers.
In the new action figure line, Nickelodeon’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles come together with favorite heroes from the Netflix hit series Stranger Things in two-packs suitable for ages 8 and up. The Turtles come appropriately styled sporting red bandannas based on their look from the original 1984 comic book, pairing perfectly with the mid ‘80s outfits worn by the Stranger Things characters.
Two, two-pack pairings will be available at launch:
· Leonardo and Eleven
· Raphael and Hopper.
Each figure in the collection stands six inches tall and is highly poseable with multiple points of articulation. Each Turtle comes with his iconic weapon twin katana for Leo, twin sai for Raph as well as portable cassette players and waffle-throwing stars, while the Stranger Things characters come equipped with accessories featured in the TV series. Eleven comes with her signature backpack, handheld phone, and flashlight. Hopper comes equipped with a spiked bat, axe, handgun and flashlight.
Additional two-packs coming in February 2023 are:
· Donatello and Lucas
· Michelangelo and Dustin.
The collectible line will be available exclusively at Target and Target.com this October. Pre-orders are available now at target.com/upsidedownremix. Volume 1 of “Stranger Things 4” premiered May 27 and is currently streaming globally on Netflix, with Volume 2 launching on July 1, 2022.
