STAR WARS & TMNT Almost Crossed Over For A Toy Line In The '90s - Check Out Some Concept Designs

Back in the '90s, Playmates were hoping to strike a deal to produce a line of Star Wars/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles action figures, and some unused concept designs have now been unveiled...

As you may already be aware, Playmates came close to producing a line of Star Wars/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles action figures back in the early '90s when Kenner allowed the Star Wars toy licence to lapse.

It wasn't meant to be (more's the pity), but thanks to WB Games' Alan Johnson, we now have a first look at some unused concept designs featuring the likes of ChewMikey, Darth Shredder, Princess April and Leo Skywalker.

Inspired by these awesome designs, Geeks Antiques created some mock-ups.

These aren't official prototypes, of course, but how cool would it be if these figures were to somehow become a reality? We've seen plenty of TMNT crossover toys in the past (Ghostbusters, Classic Monsters, WWE etc), but the galaxy far, far away has always eluded the Heroes in a Half-Shell.

Maybe if these concepts get enough attention, the Hasbro (who now handles the Star Wars licence) and Playmates will strike a deal?

Can you think of any other Star Wars/TMNT character mash-ups you'd like to see?
