neca does teenage mutant ninja turtles action figures


to an entire generation (or 2) of fans, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles perhaps exists only via cartoons and commercial toys that flooded the market a decade or two ago ('80s) and hell, even the live-action movies, or more recently the animated film ... and as much reference as hypemakers would refer to the origins of the quartet of ninja-turtles, very little may not necessarily recognize nor perhaps even seen the original design and black & white artwork by Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird (creators of TMNT).

now NECA's set to remedy that with the new TMNT Action Figure Series 1 based on aforementioned art, featuring Leonardo, Michelangelo, Raphael and Donatello in a NYCC-exclusive box set (that will include the four turtles along with all of the accessories that come with the individually packaged figures / info via) ... but THIS image (above-right) of a B&W-painted upcoming series, as shown during the New York Toy Fair 2008 [pic via ToplessRobot] truly is a sweet-piece and concept, IMHO ... meanwhile, CLICK HERE for more TMNT :)

Love this line of "true" turtles.

Isn't there an April O'Neil figure too.
