Enter our Ninja Turtles contest!

The “Cowabunga!” Contest

Die-hard fans of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles know not only the trivia about their anthropomorphic superheroes but also the dollar figures…

  • The first feature film cost $13.5 million in 1990 and earned more than $200 million.
  • This month’s remake by Michael Bay cost $125 million.
  • Capitalizing on the moment, co-creator Kevin Eastman is selling his very first drawing of the turtles, which he drew in 1984, for $2 million.

…but what can a die-hard fan (or new fan) buy on a smaller budget? Say, $100?

We sent our staff hunting for the coolest TMNT toy currently on the market for $100 or less.

Behold the glory of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Secret Sewer Lair Playset — try saying that five times fast.

That’s the coolest toy we could find. Can you do better?

What’s the best TMNT toy you can find for $100 or less?

It can be vintage, current, one toy, or a series of multiples, as long as you don’t exceed $100. If we like yours the best, we’ll buy it for you

Last week’s winner

We asked for your craziest in-app purchase. Our favorite came from Kristine Ream in Columbus, Ohio, who said…

Contest winner Kristine Ream and her husband
Kristine Ream

Virtual bales of hay and animal food in the Farmville app for $20. If you told me 10 years ago I’d be spending money on fake hay, I would have called you crazy.

We’re calling you crazy now, Kristine. But we’re sending you $50 to make up for it. Don’t spend it all on one farm.
