Beginning in 1988, Playmates Toys has been the main producer of TMNT action figures. Their original line, called simply Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles for the most part (some sub-lines had additional branding), ran until 1997, when they began releasing action figures for the new live action television series, Ninja Turtles: The Next Mutation. Some markets, however, continued to receive reissues of the figures released in this nine year span until 1999.

This first line of action figures was a hodgepodge of characters and incarnations, although most of them were (sometimes loosely) based on the 1987 cartoon show. A couple of sublines were based on the films, however, and a few characters from other incarnations, as well as original characters developed only as toys, were released.
