Peter Laird's TMNT First Turtle Vinyl Figures

Fresh from the historical sewers, we’re teaming up with ISH to release Peter Laird's TMNT Figure!

Alongside ISH, all of us at Bottleneck grew up with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles comics, cartoons, and movies, and we’ve had the immense pleasure of seeing artists we love create art for the pop culture juggernaut.

However, we also love the history behind the TMNT, and we’ve got a radical release that brings Laird’s initial idea and concept from a scribble on a napkin to life as an awesome collectible figure!

As the legend goes, one night at Mirage Studios in 1983, Laird was shown a drawing of a ‘Ninja Turtle’ by Kevin Eastman as a joke, which would later be referred to as the ‘First Turtle.’ In response, Laird illustrated his version of a masked turtle wielding weapons. The two artists had unknowingly created what would turn into the phenomena known as the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

We’ve worked with Laird’s initial concept to lovingly produce Laird’s Ninja Turtle as a limited edition collectible figure with illustration-accurate details. Although the Turtles’ look has evolved over time, we’re excited to honor the awesome origin of some of our favorite comic book characters ever!

Peter Laird's TMNT figure will be available on Wednesday (5/10) @ 12PM ET on!

See Pixel-Dan's video on these for more details about these figures:
