First Ever TMNT Toys Designed by Co-Creator
San Diego, California September 27, 2016 For the first time in the 32 year history of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, a full set of 1/6 scale action figures has been designed from the toes up by Co-Creator, Kevin Eastman.
In partnership with high-end to-scale production house Threezero, Donatello, Leonardo, Michelangelo and Raphael come to life as fully articulated figures directly from the mind of Eastman.
“The Turtles are always evolving,” said Eastman from his San Diego home, “Every artist who’s tackled them over the years (and there have been many) have put their own flair on the characters while keeping the spirit of the Turtles we know and love. This is the version I’ve developed in my mind and and my personal sketchbooks.”
While the first sets of Mikey and Leo will be made available this fall at threezero.com Eastman is offering an extremely Limited Edition 25 sets which include custom paint and headgear, individual tattoos, a signed copy of the original concept sketches, and a miniature pizza box signed and numbered with a head sketch by the Co-Creator himself. Limited Edition sets are available for pre-order on a first-come first-served basis at kevineastmanstudios.com.
25 lucky fans will even have a chance to get a hyper limited set of all four turtles:
In celebration of my 2 year collaboration with Threezero working to create my very own version of TMNT action figures, we are thrilled to announce our own VERY EXCLUSIVE Kevin Eastman Studios edition collectible sets, with production limited to just 25 sets of 4.
