As expected, there was no photography allowed of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Movie LEGO merchandise, so Thorsten did his best to describe the one set they were able to check out. It should be said that he could have easily mistaken this set for a cartoon version, had he not started by describing Raphael's full bandana mask. That bit of info made me confident about the rest of his info, which was short but interesting...
- Splinter is grey
- There was a sort of pick-up truck in the set next to a building. Driving the truck was a Foot Soldier and in the back, manning a gun, was Karai, Shredder's daughter. Here's a look at Karai from a TMNT Animated film..
And another look from the current TV series...
And her 4Kids cartoon look

So, is Shredder's little ninja girl in the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles film? Sure looks that way, doesn't it? People will say Karai IS in a TMNT set (Bike Escape listed above), but our reporter seemed confident he was identifying a genuine movie set, so we'll leave the rest of the speculation up to you.
New York Toy Fair is less than two weeks away, so keep checking back for more!
