–>> ** The first 4 editions of this figure are sold out on MONDO’s shop site & need to be purchased 3rd party at this point.
In 1983, Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird were doodling on napkins, playing around with an idea that initially began as a joke. Little did they know what started as a sketch, would turn into the phenomena known as Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
Mondo is proud to honor the history of the Turtles with a figure based on the very first illustration of a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle, as drawn by Kevin Eastman. Featuring 5 points of articulation, and illustration-accurate details, The First Turtle is perfect for TMNT and comic history fans alike!
This version features a color paint scheme with an orange mask.
Note: This item is a PRE-ORDER and is estimated to ship the 4th Quarter of 2015.
size: Approx. 6.5″
As promised, this post will be largely designated to comics ::

You may remember Langdon Foss’s IDW TMNT #20 Cover – Bobby, Tom and crew incorporated Langdon’s “KRANG MECH” design on the cover into the story-line of Krang’s war with the Neutrinos as the giant robotic-holographic BRAIN-Beast attacked Zak & the Turtles.
Foss’s design is now has been utilized in last week’s TMNT:MUTANTS IN MANHATTAN big video game release & is now known as MEGA KRANG !!

My artist buddy Timothy Lim (Ninjaink) and I have done some officially licensed Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles t-shirts and merch designs before, but this is our first foray into the TMNT comics! This is our variant cover for TMNT: Bebop & Rocksteady Destroy Everything! #1.We did this as a joint venture with Heroes & Fantasies (San Antonio’s largest comic shop) and the Palladium IMAX theater (hence the movie parody; you can guess the source material). The cover will be released on June 1st. Tim will be at the Palladium IMAX in San Antonio on June 4th for a signing, coinciding with the release of TMNT: Out of the Shadows. (Unfortunately, due to scheduling conflicts, I won’t be able to make the signing.)If you can’t make it to Heroes & Fantasies or the Palladium IMAX, then Tim will be selling copies directly via the Ninjaink Facebook page. Just shoot him a PM and he can hook you up.
It was a lot of fun; thanks to the guys at IDW and Nickelodeon who approved the design and were such good sports for the parody! —
