Mega Bloks: TMNT Sets

tmnt mega bloks

MONTREAL, Aug. 1, 2003 - Mega Bloks Inc. announced today that it has entered into a worldwide agreement with 4Kids Entertainment, Inc., the exclusive worldwide agent for the all-new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, for the right to manufacture and sell construction toys embodying the characters and elements associated with the all-new TMNT animated television series, which debuted on 4Kids Entertainment's FOX BOX in the US earlier this year and will be introduced on Teletoon in Canada in September. The "Turtles" cartoon features the butt-kicking ninja action and irreverent antics of Donatello, Leonardo, Raphael and Michaelangelo, the crime-fighting denizens of New York's sewers.

"The Turtles property gave rise to a billion dollar toy franchise in the late 1980's and early 1990's. That notoriety and awareness combined with the truly impressive action, humour and production values of the new series make it an ideal property for Mega Bloks to be associated with," said Vic Bertrand, Executive Vice President and COO of Mega Bloks. Bertrand also noted that the pact is consistent with Mega Bloks' strategy of licensing in entertainment properties that can incrementally contribute to the growth of the MEGA BLOKS(R) brand.
