Turtle Treasure 1990

So I started Spring cleaning early and came across some fun artifacts back dating 30 years ago from my personal Turtles collection.

Here are a couple of long forgotten highlights that have been a delightful rediscovery.

  1. Trenchcoat Raph.

This is my original Raphael brandishing a trenchcoat or rather a jacket that once belonged to (I think) an Action Man doll. In my toy universe Raph had a olive green jacket for concealing his Sai. I also added a black elastic from a washer as the original ninja belt was wearing away and I needed a fix. 30 years on that tough rubber band has stood the test of time!

  1. Turtles on Betamax

This Betamax (pronounced Beat-a-Max in the UK) tape originally thought lost was an amazing turnup. This was my original compilation of Teenage Mutant ‘Hero’ Turtles episodes (and censored jump-cut edits) from BBC 1 amongst some other Turtley material. “Attack of Big Macc” was the first episode I ever taped before also recording the segmented episodes from Going Live on Saturday Mornings. I also even recorded segments from the Broom Cupboard where fan artwork was showcased.

This will be capped as soon as possible!

Thanks for reading. Keep stopping by GGM the site or our social media for more Turtley updates!
