–>> The FUGLY work no one asked to see, but recently dug up.. here’s some odd, old never before published work from the crusty-old Tokka-archives  – – that only a Mother would love  .. or stick under a bird-cage.

☠ ☠

Not 100% sure but these are possibly the among the first illustrations i started drawing of these particular characters post my accident in 1999 where my signature style really started to change and develop into what it is now. Not sure. These prolly date to late ’99 – 2000. This is is the first real time they’ve been presented fully,

–>> Today, we get a quick glimpse at some weird but cool kit-bashes and repaints, 1st of their kind in this line. Look closely at the interesting variations and mixed use of body parts on the Turtle toys themselves on the images provided. All this courtesy of our confidant, Hero in England.

☠ ☠

“Even though figures of Bebop and Rocksteady are yet to have a UK release, repaints of these two have already been found in ASDA – with touched-up Turtles as sparring partners. These each retail for £14:99

Rocksteady VS Michelangelo, Raphael VS V2 Shredder (w/purple trousers sans cape), and Leonardo VS Bebop are among the line-up. For some reason, there appears to be no Donatello VS set. .. .. ” — Hero

☠ ☠

Create your own battle with the Goodie vs. Baddie Twin Pack. Train your Turtles to fight their way against the evil Shredder and his new vengeful henchman.

Will the fearless leader Leonardo defeat the brute Bebop?

Will Michelangelo’s mastery of Ninjutsu defeat the mutated rhino Rocksteady?

Or will Raphael, the muscle of the team be able to take on the criminal Shredder?

–>> A handful of unproduced prototypes, or at least drastically altered figures to the extent of their final manufactured form appear on this spread. A rare look at a few of them.

** View LARGE On Black **

★ ★

–>> The paint on Quarry’s prototype is pretty cool, this is similar to an effect of what was finally produced OVER a year later than when it was originally to be released. I recall a “spitting” action feature announced for this toy. That was not realized on the final figure. I’m not sure if i recall an actual prototype showing that feature. This photo doesn’t seem to show it at all. The proto’s visual is much better ascetically than the final figure.

** View LARGE On Black **

★ ★

 Obviously the same sculpt, only the FOOT FIRE MYSTIC was made for whatever reason.

The more ambitious customizer could hypothetically obtain 3 more Fire Mystic toys and repaint them accordingly. These guys eventually would “manifest” in the MIRAGE comic books.

** View LARGE On Black **

★ ★

This EARLY prototype of the ‘Space Hoppin’ Raph’ toy is a more accurate to what appeared in the TMNT 2k3 T.V. show than what was actually manufactured and put into stores. These were the Teens’ stolen TRICERATON space suits in the show, you can see the suit’s “tail” in the back of the toy. The actual manufactured Space Hoppers

 

LEE'S TOY REVIEW #xx, pg. 37 / "TOY FAIR 2004" , 'TMNT - 2k3 Peek' - Unproduced Mouser 6-pack  (( March 2004 ))

★ ★

 No single carded 6-pack of April’s little robot “friends” was produced for this line. However multiple Mousers would come packed in one of the S.W.A.T. multi-figure/vehicle packs in the mid-aughts.

The Nick TMNT line does have a Multi-pack of Mousers.

–>> Listings for SIMPSONS and PRO ZONE MLB are included on the page. Apparently i did not save those pages with the photos from those lines. I guess Tokka was more obviously focused on preserving TMNT imagery when i culled the rest of the magazine, for whatever reason i did that. Musta been having some manic fit again.
