–>> .. i’m convinced Falco’s figure is a really decent interpretation of your favourite Rodent Sovereign. But you know the drill with Playmates; to keep costs low – so to sometimes on these figures paint apps will look different than how you may expect or different than their prototypes, or may be totally eradicated from some portions of the figure altogether. Rat King had a little bit of this issue going on as you may recall. –
THE RAT KING
TELEPATHIC COMMANDER OF THE RAT ARMY
Cold-Blooded and deceitful, formerly known as Dr. Falco. The Rat King is determined to rid the city of humanity and claim it for his rat brothers. He is able to see through the eyes of rats and control them with his telepathic powers. Destined to take down the Turtles, the city should be wary of the one called The Rat King.
• WEAPONS: Army of Rats & Telepathic Powers
•TEAM: Rats, Kraang
There’s no rule stating you can’t take matters into your own hands to make your new toy better. Some light metallic spray paint misted on, a simple black acrylic paint wash and some careful painted details on his rodent minions, and R.K. starts to look much filthier and a bit better. Hopefully a little bit creepier too.
.. the ‘RAT O’Lantern’ taken and modified from ‘CREEPY CRAWLIN’ SPLINTER’ – 1990.
Works perfectly for the Rat King so he can see his way thru’ particularly darker corridors of the sewers n’ catacombs of NYC.
