–>> Slight rehash,re-release, re-gifting of the 2004 4kids/ Funimation release of <a href=”https://www.flickr.com/photos/terrible2z/3123818843″ target=”blank”” TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES :: “Michelangelo’s Christmas Rescue” – the mix of bare-bones episodes from the 2003 series is OK, but is short by one compared to the ’04 release. A good stocking-stuffer for the kids tho’ if the ’04 version was nothing but a ghost of Christmas past.

The cover art is style-guide work i’d previously been unfamiliar with. 4kids alumni Khary Randolph confirmed he DID NOT supply these images to Nickelodeon. Another 4kids style-guide contributor, Mirage Studio’s Michael Dooney may have been the artist behind these illustrations ( they have that vibe ), no confirmation on that tho’. They may have been newer style-guide pieces commissioned by Viacom themselves.

MondoCon 2015 :: Tokka - "FEAR BEAR" meets MIKE MITCHELL

• •

In case ya been “buzy” ( like Tokka ) and in case you missed it all  — we’ve been slammed with toy news this month between Austin’s MondoCon & NYCC ’15.

The cool kids at Toyark have us covered on the imperative bits from NYC ::

 

Here’s a quick look at some shots we caught of MONDOCon ’15 & the Toy display of Mondo’s new Classic Comic 1/6 scale TURTLES figures.

MondoCon 2015 :: Toy Display; TMNT 1/6 figures - Pre-mutant SPLINTER & UTROMSMondoCon 2015 :: Toy Display; TMNT 1/6 figures - Pre-mutant LEONARDO

The display was slightly different than the past summers SDCC ’15 Mondo booth with the Comic Casey mask and Mouser figures absent, but a new UTROM figure popped up with a T.C.R.I. canister. One would wonder if this is one of Mondo’s exclusive accessories for one of the next Turtle offerings.

**Remember, Mondo’s MICHELANGELO figure goes up for sale pretty soon here !!

Thank you for your patience the past few months, things have gotten very busy and in some regards very complicated and even good for Tokka. Thanks to HERO for filling in the gaps here while i’ve been swamped with issues n’ work.

We’ll keep pluggin’ away & working hard to bring you the very best we can and the msot unique TMNT content out there !! !!

** MICHAELANGELO #1, TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLE  { ORIGINAL MICRO-SERIES } :: Michaelangelo and Klunk 1985 Custom Action Figures on FIGUREREALM **

• •

“This is a custom Michaelangelo figure I made for a contest for Figure Realm that came in 3rd place. Its a version of Michaelangelo from a one shot comic book from 1985 called, ‘Michaelangelo Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle in “The Christmas Aliens”‘

The base figure I used was a Michaelanglo figure from the new Nickelodeon line. I had to do a ton of dremeling on this guy. All of his knee and elbow pads were completely removed. I grinded down his shell a bit, along with his feet and hands. When I had the base figure grinded down to a size I wanted I then began sculpting his clothes over the base. His head has a high grade earth magnet implanted into it to hold his hats firmly on his head. The hats also have magnets implanted in them making the fit extra snug. Both skullcap and Santa hats were completely sculpted from scratch. In order to get the hats to fit perfectly on Mikeys head and to be removable I made a soft rubber cast of the head and sculpted on to the soft rubber. When the apoxie sculpt was hard I was able to flex the hats off the rubber. I then had perfect negatives to fit on the original head. Klunk the cat is also sculpted from scratch. The Lil Orphan Alien toy canisters are made from painted wooden dowels. The graphics on the canisters are digital drawings done on Adobe Illustrator and were printed out on water slide decal paper.

The scarf is made from a piece of felt fabric. Overall when I was done sculpting I was pleasantly surprised to find the apoxie sculpt had added a nice hefty weight to the toy.
I worked for MANY hours on this custom and I would love to see Mikey go to a good home.
