So I've become a bit obsessed with repainting my old Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles action figures from my childhood. I've even gone so far as to track down missing accessories and a few figures I didn't even own when I was a kid. I've discovered the studio and artist responsible for the sculpts and have stalked him via email, but I suspect he refuses to entertain such weirdos as myself, for he hasn't written back and probably won't. I've even recently acquired the Toxic Crusaders line of figures also released by Playmates around the same time the TMNT toys were being made, and I'm willing to bet they were sculpted by the same artist. It's safe to say I'll be repainting them after I'm finished with the Turtles line.
Here are the final two figures I'll be repainting for awhile. The Holidays are on the way and I'll have less free time in the months ahead to waste on painting vintage toys. So I leave you with the mutant alligator Leatherhead and my first two custom painted good guys Napoleon Bonafrog & Flyboy. As I've already mentioned in a post or two ago, I plan to do at least ten more of these guys before I start on the Toxie guys. Until then, it's time for a break. The wife should be happy; her nerdy husband is putting away his toys... Well, some of them.
