Neca Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles


Everybody remembers the Ninja Turtles right? Leonardo, Raphael, Donatello and my all time favourite, Michaelangelo. I remember watching the cartoon shows and was so into it. Since my family weren't well off, I saved up some money and bought only one figure, Mikey. With that one figure I made a skateboard and was close to building the Party Wagon. Later my dad bought me the compiled and colored version of the comics from the 80's...which I loved very much.

The memories...

Now, a friend of mine manage to get hold of a new release of the turtles. The version that was made by Neca was based on the comic versions. Which looks really good, but the problem was...each turtle had the same color scheme for their head bands, wrist, elbow and knee guards. So my buddy did a request to give them a more identifiable which was shown in the cartoons.

Each turtle was painted by hand, to simulate the texture of fabric. Then I gave it some weathering to give it continuity with the whole figure.

Here are the new turtles.

Leo and Raph.


Donny and Mikey.







There you have it. The newly revitalised Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles! (How's that for a long time of no updating? Heh...)

Till next time!
