Pizza Hut, Syyn Labs bring Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Pizza Thrower to life

(WXYZ) - Cowabunga, dudes.

Even if you’re not a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles nerd, you still might think this is pretty cool.

Pizza Hut has teamed up with  a California-based company called Syyn Labs to build a full-size Pizza Thrower.

The 12-foot tall vehicle is modeled after the iconic Pizza Thrower made popular by the Ninja Turtles franchise.

You may remember the toy that shot out mini pizza discs and was a big hit in the 80s. 

This vehicle which will be unveiled at Comic Con San Diego this weekend weighs almost 2 tons and was built on a pickup truck platform from two decades ago.

The Pizza Thrower can apparently reach speeds up to 75 miles per hour, according to the Pizza Hut press release. 
And yes, the vehicle can really fire pizzas--which according to stats--can fly about 30 feet.

Look out!
