More like Fin Diesel, amirite? In something that definitely needs to be seen to be believed, back during the 1994 Toy Fair, Vin Diesel was helping to sell Street Sharks toys. I assume this was an early gig for him. That, or he was just really enthusiastic about Street Sharks and didn’t have time to change his clothes on the way to Toy Fair from the set of an MC Hammer music video. He is a nerd and loves Dungeons and Dragons, after all. This video popped up on Youtube yesterday out of nowhere, and the world is all the better for it. Now we know who to cast in a Street Sharks movie. Let’s get #VinDiesel4Slammu trending.

Mondo is definitely a smaller company. They specialize in posters, apparel, and even sometimes toys. Their latest foray into the toy world is actually something I’ve wanted for a very long time. Dubbed “The First Turtle“, it’s a vinyl figure based on Kevin Eastman’s original sketch of a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle, when he was just trying to draw something to make partner Peter Laird laugh. Pre-orders are up right now on their site. You can actually get this figure in many different forms. There’s the black and white sketch version, a full color version with classic Mirage red bandana, and one with an orange Michelangelo bandana (The First Turtle was drawn with nunchaku after all), or the Deluxe black and white version, which includes three alternate heads. These are scheduled to ship in the fourth quarter of 2015. Keep reading for tons of image and info. Continue reading
