“This 1985 Kevin Eastman pin-up features a huge image of Raphael leaping heedless into battle among a barrage of arrows. It is a very nice image by the TMNTs co-creator and it is from an early date, less than a year after the groundbreaking release of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #1. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles spawned an entertainment and marketing machine that continues to this very day to churn out everything from blockbuster movies to breakfast cereal and action figures. This quirky little independent issue also changed the way that collectors and investors thought about the hobby of comic book collecting. Art dating from the early years of the run is extremely coveted and high quality examples are in short supply on the open market. This art is signed and dated at the lower right and has an image area of approximately 8″ x 11″. ”
Well, five minutes after posting the new Movie pics, I find this…
William Fichtner has been added onto the cast of the New Movie as a “Character with Iconic Stature”.
For those not familiar with the name, you’ve seen him in various movies and shows such as SEAL Team Six: The Raid On Osama Bin Laden, Entourage and The Dark Knight.
Considering his acting background, and the recent photos of a seemingly Para-Military style Foot Clan, we may have our Shredder. The Rumor Mill’s been grinding away at stories of a crazed Soldier who’s got the turtles in his sights, and this… may or may not cement that idea in some fans’ minds. I’m very curious to see how the whole origin story is going to play out, if this is the situation.
I want to see more info before I make a judgement, but the speed that things are coming out is awesome. We’ll be getting our answers soon enough…
If you haven’t seen it yet, it’s all here… we’ve finally caught glimpse of the new Logo, which looks Very nice, and we’ve been treated to peeks of April, some well-known co-workers, trampolines and Three of our Mo-Capped Turtles in a wicked bad situation. I just had to pull away from FCBD stuff to share this – It’s comin’ out of the woodwork!
