The Megatron is saying “Cowabunga.” Former Detroit Lions superstar Calvin Johnson, Jr. is set to marry his fiancee, Brittney McNorton, this weekend, and they’re asking for an eclectic list of items on their registry (which they’ve listed on The Knot!), including Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles-themed items.

Local news affiliate ABC 7 first found the couple’s Macy’s registry online, and they’re requesting traditional items like Monique Lhullier dinnerware, Marquis by Waterford wine glasses and Lenox silverware. There’s even a stunning Mikasa vase and electrics like a Nespresso machine and Blendtec blender in the mix.

However, their home and design theme gets interesting once guests get to the towels and bath rugs section. Along with Hotel Collection’s fluffy towels and glass bathroom ware, Johnson and McNorton are asking for a TNMT hand towel and matching multi-color bath towel and rug.

The two (or maybe just Johnson) also scanned for a TNMT lotion pump, a toothbrush holder, a colorful shower curtain and a matching waste basket. Fans and guests should jump on these items quickly because they’re nearly fulfilled.

Johnson, 30, proposed to his longtime girlfriend McNorton — a staffer at the Detroit Lions front office — in March 2015.

The two were in Baltimore for the Ed Block Courage Awards when Johnson popped the question in the city’s famed Inner Harbor. The prolific wide receiver spent the entire span of his NFL career with the Lions, and announced his retirement earlier this year.
