Nickelodeon & Viacom Consumer Products has joined forces with Forbidden Planet to bring an exclusive range of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles apparel, art and homeware to the retailer's UK stores.

Turtles fans were given a sneak peek at the product range at last weekend's MCM Comic Con, while also being treated to an appearance from the pizza loving foursome.

The new Forbidden Planet range has a retro look and is inspired by the original series. The lines go on sale from Saturday June 6th at stores across major UK cities, including the megastore on London's Shaftesbury Avenue.

It is also available online and includes t-shirts, aprons, posters and cards, as well as Turtles homeware.

"We're excited to partner with Forbidden Planet for the first time on a range that gives a nostalgic nod to the original series," said Marianne James, VP consumer products UK & Ireland and European retail sales and marketing, Viacom International Media Networks.

"As a family brand it's fantastic to have a new line of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles products which appeals to adult fans, in addition to our licences that cater to our kids' audience."
