**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! —

Seeing the past few week’s comic incidents have lead Donatello to a whole new level of interest and “Saintly-hood” now that he’s dead AGAIN. A Satanic little Tokka-snake is keepin’ an eye on things just to keep things real and perhaps make this post somewhat ironically appropriate this fine Easter day.

Quick Toy notes::

As usual, the drum i pound each and every-time until the damn drum breaks breaks: ” patience is key “. More power to the individual collector or ones of extraneous circumstances who can afford the really wacky and sometimes unreasonable prices any particular dealer offers for advanced product. Not to chastise any particular dealer, i’m sure they price things based on demand. More power to them too.. But if you stay vigil and PATIENT the same product should, in most cases be available locally in your area soon, if not very soon. This includes product based on the current T.V. Show from Playmates ( Rahzar, Slash ,LARP TMNT, et al. ), Kidrobot Vinyl releases, ect. When these items show up online in auctions or the toy reviewers receive them from the companies for critique, that’s when you keep a calm and cool eye – best you can on your local store pegs. I know it’s not easy .. but even if i like or not – -it’s the nature of the hunt. Staying cool and collected and learning / recognizing the patterns and signs of product releases makes good sense for getting EVEN THE COMPLETEST everything they want for their particular collection. and you don’t have to break the bank and sell the farm and stress out to make that happen. I’m tellin’ you this cuz Tokka’s gotta tell himself the exact same thing in regards to collecting all the time.   🙂 And if all else fails..  yes yes.. THERE’S ALWAYS EBAY.   Real quick, our friend  Powder showed us a glimpse of the newest MOVIE T.V. spot with a new Shredder viewpoint. I’ll try to post that soon.     ~ t
