TMNT 2014 Movie Figures By MintCondition

TMNT: Jay Cochran - 2014.08.10
This week's TNI Cool Custom is of some TMNT Turtle figures based on the new 2014 movie. These customs were done by MintCondition..

Here is how he describes them.

"The official Playmates figures for the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie leave a lot to be desired, so I decided to fix them in order to make them completely movie accurate. I studied several images and trailer stills in order to get down every detail. Each figure has been fully repainted from head to toe, with spots on their skin, Japanese Kanji on their bandanas and shells, and realistic shading, highlights, and weathering. For Leonardo I used the head from the Combat Warrior figure (the deluxe sized figures), because it’s actually smaller than the basic figure’s head (which is too big), and it sits better on the figure, and added the NYC button on his weapon strap. For Michelangelo, I added the shades around his necklace, and the tattoo on his left arm. On Raphael I added the scar over his lip, the tattoo on his right bicep, and some shades that fit on his forehead. For Donatello, I also used the head from the Combat Warrior figure, because the sculpt was much more detailed, and looked better. I made his glasses out of craft wire, with sewing thread for the tape and painted them to look like tortoiseshell frames. I also used sewing thread for the electrical wiring to connect pieces of his equipment. Of course I also went through and gave all their weapons realistic repaints as well, adding real chain to Mikey’s. And now that the Ninja Turtles actually look like they do from the movie, they’re ready to take down Shredder and the entire Foot Clan. COWABUNGA!
