Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles - Retailer Rumors Say to Expect a Re-Release of 'The Complete Classic Series Collection'

The original 1987 animated series is expected to be back in stores this summer!

Posted by David Lambert
    Experience the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle saga in this totally tubular 23-disc set of the original animated series, featuring all 10 seasons in one complete cowabunga collection! From their origins on the comic book page to the depths of Dimension X and beyond, the pizza- loving, shell-busting Leonardo, Donatello, Raphael and Michelangelo, with the guidance of their Sensei, have been delighting fans for decades with their turtle power.

    Whether it's facing fierce enemies Krang, Shredder and Lord Dregg, saving humanity from near extinction, or battling against life-altering mutations, the half-shell heroes are always ready for heart-stopping, time-bending, straight outta the sewer action!
Information about this pizza pie isn't fully baked just yet, but the rumor among retailers in the home video industry is that Lionsgate is planning on re-releasing Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles - The Complete Classic Series Collection, with all 10 seasons of the original 1987 animated series!

This 23-DVD set was originally released back in late 2012, and the discs came inside "an exclusive, plastic molded collectible 'party van' package"" back in the day. It was priced at $99.98 SRP when it first came out. That set has since been discontinued from production (although it can still be found offered here and there by a few sellers).

Now we're being told by our industry contacts that Lionsgate wants to bring this title back! What's unclear, however, is if this is going to be the exact same item in the same collectible packaging (perhaps to herald the upcoming Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series coming to Nickelodeon this fall?), or if it's going to be the identical discs in new "shelf-friendly" packaging (like most other releases routinely come).

All we know right now is that the industry contacts we have are telling us to expect this in mid-June, probably on June 12th. Pricing, package art imagery, and any possible changes in content versus the old set haven't been revealed thus far. Just the title, timeframe, and that it's expected to be the same count of 23 DVDs as the previous item with the same title. We'll keep an eye on this, of course, so stay tuned!
