Nick UK, Ciro Nieli competition and interviews.

Prize3“Ello, Guv’Na!”

This is Ringo the British Turtle. Sketched by Ciro Nieli at Nickelodeon’s London headquarters. If you reside in the UK you can win this exclusive sketch (and additional goodies) by entering the competition at nick.co.uk/ciro .

The competition closes on October 23rd, so don’t hesitate to enter!

The competition is also accompanied by a series of exclusive UK-based video shorts with Ciro as well. These are definitely worth watching!

What if the Turtles were British?! One of the videos covers that very question.

All-Orange Wave 2 Mutagen released in the UK

Wave 2 Mutagen Ooze has hit the UK! (sort of).

tesco ooze

This second wave of all-orange ooze (as a nod to retro mutagen no doubt) has different shade repaints of the mini turtles from wave 1.

Unlike the bandana colors of the American release, the mini turtles are still different shades of green. Although, this wave has an exclusive ‘chase figure’ of sorts with a Golden Turtle!

US wave 1 Leo on Left, UK Wave 2 Leo on Right

The Golden Turtle is part of a competition and promotion with Nickelodeon UK to win prizes and a vacation to Greece! The orange ooze canisters have only been found in Tesco stores and are likely an exclusive.


Punters who don’t find the Golden Turtle can still enter the competition via a promo code that every canister comes with. The promo code with The Golden Turtle is to prove authenticity.

Competition closes midnight (GMT) October 31st.
