Ninja Turtles fans, we're teaming up with Nickelodeon to give you an article that's full of greatness. First and foremost, we have a clip for this Sunday's new episode of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, "The Pig and the Rhino." As you can tell by the title (or the last cliffhanger), this one features the classic goons Bebop and Rocksteady. Fans of the show know they aren't just two silly henchmen anymore; now they both have their own unique personalities and strengths! The exclusive clip reveals how they'll earn their new names, which is important since right now they're just going by Anton Zeck and Ivan Steranko.
After you watch the clip, we're giving you a chance to win autographed action figures of the two mutants! They'll be signed by the mutants' voice actors, J.B. Smoove (Bebop) and Fred Tatasciore (Rocksteady), as well as executive producers Ciro Nieli and Brandon Auman. Awesome, right? Four lucky Viners will win both figures! Entering is simple, too. You just need to answer one question: Who's your favorite mutant from the TMNT franchise? You must pick just one and please make sure your answer isn't more than a few sentences long. Breaking those rules will disqualify you from the running. The contest runs from right now until March 13, at 10am (ET). Sorry, but this only applies to Viners living in the United States. We still love you though, international Viners. Anyway, ready to watch the clip? Of course you are!
Last but not least, we're also here to tell you about a tournament that'll start soon -- and it's another way for you to win some cool stuff! Beginning March 8, "TMNT Mutant Madness" will kick-off. It's a bracket-style tournament that'll have you voting in match-ups between 16 of the show's mutants. The "Ultimate Mutant Champion" will be announced March 23. After you vote, you'll also be able to enter sweepstakes for prizes and the chance to unlock exclusive content. According to the press release, you'll be able to get character bios, gifs, images and videos about the mutants. CLICK HERE to go to the tournament's page and don't forget to vote this Monday! Oh man, Ice Cream Kitty and Slash are options? How could I ever choose one over the other?!
