The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (TMNT) are heading back to the ’80s with a new crossover collection from Playmates Toys!

Playmates Toys, Capcom, and Nickelodeon announced the upcoming Street Fighter vs. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles collection, timed with the game’s 35th anniversary this year with an unveiling of a pair of two-character sets during Licensing Expo. Following last years Cobra Kai vs. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles collection of two-character figure sets, this is the TMNT’s newest pop-culture collab mashup.

When the Street Fighter series leveled up the combat video game scene in 1987, its iconic characters — such as Chun-Li and Ryu — became household names. Now the team will face off against the sewer-dwelling, crime-fighting, pizza-loving TMNT for an epic ’80s matchup that will make you want to tease your hair up high.

Each 6-inch figure in the collection is highly poseable with multiple points of articulation – from ball joints at the head, shoulders, and hips to split joint elbows and knees, and more — to allow for epic “vs.” poses. The Street Fighter figures are authentically detailed to match the likeness of the characters in the Street Fighter II video game, and the two-character sets come in ‘80’s video game console-inspired, window box packaging.

Pairings includes, Ryu vs. Leonardo, Chun-Li vs. Michelangelo, Guile vs. Raphael, and Ken Masters vs. Donatello. The first two sets — Ryu vs. Leo and Chun-Li vs. Mikey — are set to arrive at retail stores later this fall. Cowabunga, dude!
