Usagi Yojimbo makes a comback in the upcoming TMNT line

RUMOR: Usagi Yojimbo may be reemerging to make a debut alongside the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles again this year.

For context: Usagi Yojimbo, a Ronin Rabbit Samurai in an anthropomorphic fuedal Japan is a manga creation of Stan Sakai. 

This long eared swordsmen in a way was a sort of Samurai Jack before his time, with many a gritty and adult toned adventure from time to time, that at one point crossed over into the Ninja Turtle verse. 



He also debuted on Western Television during the 1980's release of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles show, and later in the early 2000's with their revision on the heroes in the half shell.



Well according to Greg Cripes at the Playmates Toys Booyakashi Panel , the Rabbit Ronan may be reemerging on the western market again, in an up coming series of action figures, comics and even set to appear on the new show.   The title being Samurai Turtles.

 Not Much else has been revealed from Nickelodeon or the character creaters regarding this news, but it makes for an interesting find to know that the Rabbit Ronin may be making a comeback in the states again.
