Sometimes you get an email about the TMNT that makes you simultaneously over-excited (because of all the awesomeness) and incredibly sad (because you’re not made of money. That’s pretty much exactly what I felt when the following landed in my inbox:
“For the first time in the 32 year history of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, a full set of 1/6 scale action figures has been designed from the toes up by Co-Creator, Kevin Eastman.
In partnership with high-end to-scale production house Threezero, Donatello, Leonardo, Michelangelo and Raphael come to life as fully articulated figures directly from the mind of Eastman.
“The Turtles are always evolving,” said Eastman from his San Diego home, “Every artist who’s tackled them over the years (and there have been many) have put their own flair on the characters while keeping the spirit of the Turtles we know and love. This is the version I’ve developed in my mind and and my personal sketchbooks.”
While the first sets of Mikey and Leo will be made available this fall at threezero.com Eastman is offering an extremely Limited Edition 25 sets which include custom paint and headgear, individual tattoos, a signed copy of the original concept sketches, and a miniature pizza box signed and numbered with a head sketch by the Co-Creator himself. Limited Edition sets are available for pre-order on a first-come first-served basis at kevineastmanstudios.com.
