The world of the TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES keeps getting bigger, and the folks at Playmates Toys keep expanding upon the types of play that's available to the growing legion of TMNT fans out there. While the core action figures are the cornerstone, T-Machines (reviewed here), Mutations and Half-Shell Heroes are also increasingly popular. Now comes T-Sprints, "Mighty Motorized Micros" that are launching first at Toys "R" Us this month, and racing into other retailers beginning in January of 2016. What are they? Quite simply, they're old-school rev-up toys, but with a "unique flywheel so kids can rev and send them sprinting into action." Check out two promotional spots and full details below...

The mighty, motorized micro T-Sprints can quickly take off on wild adventures--just rev, drop and go! With the figure powering the vehicle, T-Sprints figures can be revved, dropped into a vehicle shell and sent racing into action! Kids can collect all of the T-Sprints figures and vehicles including Lickety Split Leo with Shellraiser, Mad Motion Mikey with Party Van, Rapid Assault Raph with Stealth Bike, Dasher Donnie with Patrol Buggy, and Supersonic Shredder with Shreddermobile.

Available this spring, the T-Sprints collection will also include the T-Sprints Sewer Duel Playset that comes with an exclusive Leo figure to provide kids with even more exciting action. Kids can rev up the T-Sprints Leo figure to send him sprinting through the sewer, racing past mutant Shredder and escaping in the Shellraiser. Whether kids choose to rev the T-Sprints Ninja Turtles off to battle evil or to race against one other, T-Sprints are sure to provide hours of fast-moving fun.

Look for these starting this month at your local Toys "R" Us store.
