NECA, Nick Expand ‘Ninja Turtles’
The National Entertainment Collectibles Association (NECA) has extended its “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” deal with Viacom Nickelodeon Consumer Products to include international markets.
NECA’s revised agreement will allow it to sell “TMNT” products in Asia, Europe and South America. The new deal expands on the company’s agreement, which covers action figures, prop replicas, accessories and collectibles.
“Bringing our Turtle product to fans worldwide is something we have wanted for years,” says Randy Falk, director of product development, NECA. “Thanks to our great partnership with Nickelodeon, we are so grateful to finally give loyal international Turtle fans–who have been supporting our ‘TMNT’ line since its inception–an opportunity to collect this fantastic range.”
The “TMNT” line of goods has continued to be an essential property for Viacom Nickelodeon Consumer Products. The company recently announced a slew of “TMNT” licensed items late last year including playsets and homewares.
