TMNT movie style custom figures

Recommended Posts

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (the movie)


as long as i have been customizing, these are the FIRST custom figures that i made for myself!!!


the ninja turtles have always been near and dear to me. since the comic hit back in the 80's, through the cartoon's and movies in the 90's, and still today. i love the art and stories Eastman and Laird produced on the comic pages. it was the only comic to actually excite me when i saw the new issue on the rack. the original series is my favorite comic series of all time. the original movie is still something i enjoy watching today. in my oppinion, it's probably the best comic/live action movie addaptions (along with michael keaton's batman) pre Spiderman.


i used a beat-up set of the old tmnt movie figures and did a lot of moding and detailing. the first thing i did was to swap their heads to better match their personalities. next i resculpted their mask tails, the main reason was because they were all missing. then i gave them all fresh life-like paint aps, followed by hand stiched leather belts, and MUCH better weaponry. the bo staff and nunchuks i made myself out of wooden rods, string, and stain. the sais were electra's and the swords were from the ML white ninja/electra 2 pack. i hand crafted the domino's pizza box from an actual domino's pizza box, then i used markers to draw the symbol on it. the ooze container was an original turtle toy accessory that i just repainted and the skateboard is a techdeck board.


this is what they looked like before



and after...
