** 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.
