Minecraft players have used the new armor decks to create the helmets from the popular Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles franchise. Armor trims are a brand new feature in the game, which has just been announced for update 1.20, which is currently scheduled for release sometime later this year.
Minecraft is a sandbox game that allows players to build and create their own virtual worlds. The most impressive aspect of the game is of course the creativity of the players, many have used the famous building blocks to create incredible structures and designs. This naturally includes the many TMNT builds in line with the newly invented helmets.
TMNT is a popular media series that originated in a cartoon series released back in 1984. The characters Leonardo, Raphael, Michelangelo and Donatello are four teenage turtles who have been mutated into humanoids and trained in the art of ninjutsu by their teacher, Master Splinter. The franchise consists of several animated and live-action television series, films and games.
When it comes to the helmets, a few players have already experimented with the accessory, but most are looking forward to this brand new crossover with the TMNT. “You’ll be able to try out armor trims in this week’s Java Snapshot,” explains the official announcement for Update 1.20. “We’re working hard to get them into Bedrock betas and previews as soon as possible, so stay tuned.”
Armor trims are basically “patterns for your armor that allow you to customize your armor, add style, and show off your Overworld travels!” According to developer Mojang Studios, these come in 11 different patterns that can be dyed in 10 different colors. In order to trim a piece of armor, players must “hunt for a Blacksmith’s Template, a new necessary ingredient to make upgrades at the Blacksmith’s Table.” These can apparently “be found all over the Minecraft world.”
Minecraft players have been taking inspiration from TMNT for years, using the building blocks in the game to create some pretty incredible builds. These range from exact replicas of the iconic cave to entire cities inspired by the famous franchise. Some have even created custom skins and mods to make their Minecraft characters look like the turtles of the same name, including helmets.
