The first TMNT license came in the form of a role-playing game by Palladium, followed by miniatures from Dark Horse. Within a year, First Comics began to reprint the early issues in color volumes; four were produced, stopping at issue 11. These sold well, and Eastman and Laird were soon contacted by Mark Freedman, a licensing agent who believed he could make something of the Turtles. Freedman took the idea to a variety of toy companies, only to be turned down by those who felt the concept was not popular enough to support a toy line. Only one company expressed interest, a little-known California company by the name of Playmates.

History
All you guys sheeting on playmates should feel sorry for yourselves 'cos only playmates gave TMNT a chance at the time.
Basically, playmates created the nostalgia feeling of TMNT toys.....
for me at least.

Yeah, & Charles Manson wrote nice songs before he formed a psychedelic death cult. Things change.
