PORTRAIT OF YANKEE DOODLE RAPH
The Sewer Civil War Hero!

VITAL YANKTISTICS:

Accessories: Bodacious Bed Roll, Removable Belt, Reptile Rifle with Sai Bayonet, Foot Firin’ Flint Pistol, Cool Canteen with String-a-long Strap
Favorite Food: Yankee Pot Roast Pizza
Favorite Saying: Don’t fire ’til you’ve eaten all your pizza!

It’s good to have the one and only classic Military Mutant Yankee Doodle Raph on your side. His ancestors fought in the Revolutionary War – and that’s how he got his good ol’ American name. Yankee Doodle Raph represents all that’s right with out heritage – apple pie, pizza pie, octipi… and all that other stuff. The Foot will retreat when this rebel with courage comes forward. Raph’s ready with his Foot firin’ flint pistol and reptile rifle – with weapons so radical, the Foot will surely stay away from the sewers. So let the drum and fife play loud and play proud. Yankee Doodle Raph can’t be stopped, cuz he marches over all borders with good on his side!

–>> The “NINJA TURTLES” title on the cards reflects early design and production by Playmates before “TEENAGE MUTANT” was added back to the title of the reboot film. Cards and promo material had already been produced or were already moving forward in production by the time name change was made so i presume it was kind of too late to go back and change the first wave releases. That may change on cards in future releases later this year/ next year.

"NINJA TURTLES" Movie :: FOOT SOLDIER  ii (( 2014 ))

I believe this has happened to Playmates before, for example when they had the Peter Jackson “KING KONG” license. KING KONG related products and toys had “KONG : THE 8th WONDER OF THE WORLD” labeling, toys that rolled out at this time i think represented an earlier title to that film. Until just simply “KING KONG” became the film’s title. The early design and production by the toy companies had already had “8th WONDER – ” labels and cards. Playmates was not the only company effected by this. Tho’ i doubt the Film title changing issues really go into effecting the parallel product line’s sales. Other factors on the other hand do tho’.

"NINJA TURTLES" Movie :: FOOT SOLDIER  { tOKKustom PARAMILITARY wash } viii // ..serial killer (( 2014 ))

I’m finding that the the basic Movie Foot is pretty creepy so i ‘ll have one AS-IS.. it’s doubtful that the FOOT are wearing translucent masks in the film. They might, but amoung the first real villains we were able to sneak-a-peek at fully last year was the standard “PARAMILITARY” – like Foot Soldiers. I tried to make one as movie accurate as i could, and it really wasn’t that hard and didn’t take too long. This is just what i did, you can do whatever you want or nothing at all, of coarse.

"NINJA TURTLES" Movie :: FOOT SOLDIER  { tOKKustom PARAMILITARY wash } x // ..Foot Tactical Shield (( 2014 )) Using metallic silver, Krylon Fusion “hammered-look” COPPER spray paint for plastics ( on mask ), and some various washes and minor paint on his scarf & metallics on the boots – i think i did okay. The survival knife and firearms have just a metallic wash over them and weapons & figure are coated in a simple sealant even a glue-like substance like Modge Podge rubbed on the figure will work. That final step is not 100 % necessary, but if he’s gonna be handled allot for play and display, i do suggest it.

"NINJA TURTLES" Movie :: FOOT SOLDIER  { tOKKustom PARAMILITARY wash } iv // ..arsenals  (( 2014 ))

Since the Foot seem to be going all G.I.Joe in this movie, expanding the Soldier’s arsenal was just an obvious & easy option. For his cannon, battering ram, shield and bullhorn i easily customized/metalized the “stolen” weapons from one of the cheap DOLLAR TREE “MILITARY ACTION FIGURES” available in the toy isle of most of those stores. The weapons aren’t perfect, but add a fun display option. The one displayed on the right is the toy i cobbled these weapons from. The frogman looks like he has some cool weapons to RAVAGE as in the future !!

He is ready to destroy anything that crosses his way, including the Turtles! Anyone who pesters this insect should be ready to get stung!

Nickelodeon  TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES :: COCKROACH TERMINATOR ..card insert (( 2013 ))

..minor variation on the newer card insert, including instructions on attaching the “antenna” piece into Roach’s head. This insert is from the original release. The browner tones on the body and carapace seem a little darker as well. His one “Good eye” seems to be painted in a lighter black. The cylindrical metal component on his shell on this re-issue has NOT been painted silver as on the original release for some reason. I suppose you could always paint it yourself.

Nickelodeon  TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES :: COCKROACH TERMINATOR V.2 iv (( 2014 ))These paint touch-ups really make Roach look a little better. I’m trying to break it down here for ya best i can to help  you decide; if you think it’s worth a re-purchase of the guy for the new colouring. or just to have a variant MOC to save.

Not a perfect toy, but i am fond of the little guy.. and while scale issues plague so much of this line, C.T. here is really not one of them effected. He pretty much is to scale of the Teen figures like he was on the show last season.
