“In episode 13, called “Ever Burning Fire,” fans will meet two new characters.

The first is Chompy Picasso, a cute little alien turtle that becomes Raphael’s new pet, replacing the former Spike.
The second will be familiar to fans of the live-action Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: Secret of the Ooze – Tokka! Only, “This version of Tokka is a little bit different,” Auman said. He’s a giant, magma rock kaiju monster that breaths fire. In the main storyline, this Tokka safeguards the third and final fragment of the black hole generator!”

PRIME :: TORTUES NINJA  porcelain miniature prototypes ii (( 2009 ))

–>> French prototypes from **PRIME, a gift from this past holiday season from a friend. Possibly due to the nature of the items being prototypes, some damage had occurred. Or perhaps with this kind of small item breakage may be common. Not sure.

The trinkets arrived with all the figures intact with exception to Shredder, Standing Raph, and the Sword wielding stanced Leo. Repairs and restorations were made to the broken trinkets with paint applications and glazes reapplied to the best of my abilities.

From what i can tell, the prototypes appear to be almost exactly the same miniatures appearing in French stores,online, in bakeries or what have you. The words “PROTO No 1” or “PROTO MOD1”, however appear on the bottom of the figures’ bases except for the standing Raph one which is blank.

These types of minis can be bought separately for collecting , but the traditional usage of these trinkets are as fèves or “BEANS” for King Cakes in celebration of the Epiphany during the Christmas time from countries like Belgium, France, and Mexico and elsewhere leading up to Mardi Gras & Carnival. At least in countries where it is legal to put non-edible items in food.

The Epiphany ( January 6th ) is looked upon as Christ becoming human on Earth and / or the visitation of the Magi or Three Wise Men to the Christ Child. Growing up Catholic, if i recall correctly this was a feast day and “Holy Day of Obligation” and usually one is required to attend church services, acknowledge the holiday and worship.

PRIME :: TORTUES NINJA  porcelain miniature prototypes xxv / SPLINTER (( 2009 ))

PRIME :: TORTUES NINJA  porcelain miniature prototypes xxvi / SPLINTER (( 2009 ))

The ” 12 days of Christmas ” come from the leading days to Epiphany – starting on Christmas Eve and ending on the Epiphany holiday.

***Pulled from a wiki due to my exhaustion ::

.. “Tradition holds that the cake is “to draw the kings” to the Epiphany. A figurine, la fève, which can represent anything from a car to a cartoon character, is hidden in the cake and the person who finds the trinket in their slice becomes king for the day and will have to offer the next cake.

 

Originally, la fève was literally a broad bean (fève), but it was replaced in 1870 by a variety of figurines out of porcelain or—more recently—plastic. These figurines have become popular collectibles and can often be bought separately.

 

Individual bakeries may offer a specialized line of fèves depicting diverse themes from great works of art to classic movie stars and popular cartoon characters.

The cakes are usually sold in special bags, some of which can be used to heat the cake in a microwave without ruining the crispness of the cake. A paper crown is included with the cake to crown the “king” who finds the fève in their piece of cake. To ensure a random distribution of the cake shares, it is traditional for the youngest person to place themselves under the table and name the recipient of the share which is indicated by the person in charge of the service.” .. ..

Growing up an ignorant North American, Catholic white-boy, Tokka doesn’t recall Epiphany being as ‘major’ a holiday as Christmas itself ..at least in my family. However we usually were required to go to church on the holy day. I certainly don’t recall “King Cakes” or little bean-beings being pulled from them in celebrations on January 6th.

MiniStPRIME :: TORTUES NINJA  porcelain miniature prototypes xxix / SHREDDER (( 2009 )) However this tradition has been a major device in holiday celebrations overseas and in South America for a VERY long time.

PRIME :: TORTUES NINJA  porcelain miniature prototypes xxx / SHREDDER ..with PLAYMATES '03 SHREDDER (( 2009 )) I am sure some areas in North America may also partake in the breaking of “KING CAKE” to guide the Magi to the Baby Jesus and a special porcelain treasure being found by “THE KING or QUEEN for the DAY” in their special cake.

Worlds of Wonder : ‘ The TALKING Snoopy ‘ (( 1988 ))

–>> This charming ol’ T.V. spot for cassette based,‘ The TALKING Snoopy ‘ features the soft and friendly voice of none other than Cam Clarke ( Leonardo’s voice talent from the original TMNT animated series ).

Snoopy!! The Musical

Snoopy!! The Musical

Cam’s no stranger to Broadway, as you may know. And appearing in the late 1980s, around the same time the original Turtles show was just getting started- Cam provided the vocal and singing talents to famous beagle in the televised “Snoopy!!! The Musical”, animated adaptation of the stage show. I think it’s safe to conclude that’s why Cam’s voice was also featured in the amazing little, electronic gem to represent the legendary Charles Shultz’s most popular creation.
