The fine folks at Cortes Studio have put out some great new images of the classic TMNT figures from Playmates. Although this is only one sculpt, it gives you an idea of just how awesome these figures are going to be. I believe these are the best photos to surface to date.
You get a nice 360 degree view of Raphael. Although Raph is my least favorite turtle, he looks absolutely amazing in this vintage inspired figure.
These figures are a bit of an amalgamation of the vintage figures, classic 80’s artwork and style guides as well as the vintage Fred Wolf cartoon. Personally I think this is just incredible and a great way to cover all the bases. Playmates has done an astounding job here.
Of course, this is the prototype, so I’m sure the final version will be slightly less detailed in the paint department. Hopefully all the articulation remains, though.
If you’re like me, this is the toy line I’m most looking forward to this year. In fact, I’m ready to go ahead and commit to quitting everything else if this toy line expands to the areas I want it to. It’s that good.
Hell I think you’d be hard pressed to find anyone that would argue that this COULD be the toy line of the year… Assuming Playmates doesn’t bungle it up somehow. I have faith in them.
Of course I’m saying a million little prayers too.
He’s cool but rude.
