Nickelodeon & Viacom Consumer Products is asking UK kids to vote for which Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle action figure they’d like to see sent into space.
The stunt is to promote season four of the animated series on Nicktoons and the upcoming release of the Dimension X action figure range from GP Flair.
From today, fans can vote for Leonardo: Space Captain, Donatello: Space Scientist, Raphael: Space Battler or Michelangelo: Space Traveler to take a trip into space.
Voting will close on February 29th, with the winning mutant’ journey recorded and made available online in late March.
“Sending a Turtle into space is a brilliant way to highlight both the new series and the fantastic new line from GP Flair," said Marianne James, VP, consumer products UK & Ireland & European retail sales & marketing, Nickelodeon & Viacom Consumer Products.
"The success of Turtles products has been metaphorically stratospheric since launch so it is only fitting that we finally get around to literally putting a Turtle into space. My vote is for Mikey.”
Anne-Marie Noon, boys’ marketing manager, GP Flair, added: “Fans will be able to vote from all four Dimension X Turtles that are available in our new spring 2016 collection which is already available in toy stores.
“They come complete with everything they would need for a stellar adventure including space helmets, gravity belts and of course weapons adapted for their new galactic surroundings. The question will be which of them will be chosen for the challenge; I too like Mikey, but it’s Leo that gets my vote.”
Series four of Nickelodeon’s hit animated show premieres at 7:30am tomorrow, Saturday 6th, February on Nicktoons. New episodes of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles will air on Nicktoons each Saturday and Sunday at 7:30am across February.
The video starring the winning space-bound Ninja will be released to coincide with new episodes of the series in April.
