**The First Turtle Figure (Color Version with Orange Mask)
By Mondo

–>> ** The first 4 editions of this figure are sold out on MONDO’s shop site & need to be purchased 3rd party at this point.

In 1983, Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird were doodling on napkins, playing around with an idea that initially began as a joke. Little did they know what started as a sketch, would turn into the phenomena known as Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

Mondo is proud to honor the history of the Turtles with a figure based on the very first illustration of a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle, as drawn by Kevin Eastman. Featuring 5 points of articulation, and illustration-accurate details, The First Turtle is perfect for TMNT and comic history fans alike!

This version features a color paint scheme with an orange mask.

Note: This item is a PRE-ORDER and is estimated to ship the 4th Quarter of 2015.
material: PVC
size: Approx. 6.5″

You may remember Langdon Foss’s IDW TMNT #20 Cover – Bobby, Tom and crew incorporated Langdon’s “KRANG MECH” design on the cover into the story-line of Krang’s war with the Neutrinos as the giant robotic-holographic BRAIN-Beast attacked Zak & the Turtles.

My artist buddy Timothy Lim (Ninjaink) and I have done some officially licensed Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles t-shirts and merch designs before, but this is our first foray into the TMNT comics!  This is our variant cover for TMNT: Bebop & Rocksteady Destroy Everything! #1.We did this as a joint venture with Heroes & Fantasies (San Antonio’s largest comic shop) and the Palladium IMAX theater (hence the movie parody; you can guess the source material).  The cover will be released on June 1st.  Tim will be at the Palladium IMAX in San Antonio on June 4th for a signing, coinciding with the release of TMNT: Out of the Shadows.  (Unfortunately, due to scheduling conflicts, I won’t be able to make the signing.)If you can’t make it to Heroes & Fantasies or the Palladium IMAX, then Tim will be selling copies directly via the Ninjaink Facebook page.  Just shoot him a PM and he can hook you up.

It was a lot of fun; thanks to the guys at IDW and Nickelodeon who approved the design and were such good sports for the parody! —

–>> Trivial observation: while it may have been a basic design choice, most K•B ads from back in the day..say 1980s and 1990s that Tokka recalls were illustrated like what we see here in this complete ad set. That may have been a cost saving measure as well. Or maybe it was just a printing choice of many retailers at the time. Countless stores had illustrated newspaper print ads for decades. You’ll still find them on occasion in newspapers and the like today. Most newspaper ads it seems are mostly photographic nowadays however.

I recall black & white print ads in newspapers say like in a classified page that were also illustrated for the toy store. I don’t think i have any photographic ads in my archives for K•B ( formerly ‘KAY•BEE’ ), unless they are from the late 1990s or early 2000s.

Not 100% sure, but this may be my only complete circular set for K•B nay for some random and loose pages. I don’t always get to post these COMPLETE ads as there is very time consuming process that takes a bite into my personal work. However, in the long run they are important pieces of TMNT advertising and toy history, if not just Toy history in general. A glimpse into the past of retail toy shopping in a per-internet shopping era.

Guessing things like this just really didn’t survive many recycling bins or rubbish collections just short of microfiche or someone saving them or what have you. It’s prolly beneficial to all when i do make the time to post ’em digitally.

Sometimes i am asked of the fate of K•B after the final bankruptcy and demise of the once iconic Mall TOY retailer in 2008.

TOYS ‘R’ US came in a year later to purchase all intellectual properties, names, iconography, logos, licenses, et al. like they had with the operations of the FAO Schwarz brand the same year.

Last seen K•B was used in SOME labeling within some TRU stores to possibly a lesser degree than the FAO Schwarz branded boutique set-ups in the retail stores right now. I’m not sure what products received that labeling or if that continues currently or into the future. Time will tell.

The stores became a staple for shopping centers and malls in North America for decades and has burned into countless childhood memories including mine.
I’m sure a portion of the value of that iconography is what lead to the TRU purchase in ’09. That value may resonate into a major return of the K• B brand in some form or fashion some day.
