OK, so during august, I decided I wanted to get all the Next Mutation figures. But try as I might, I could not find a regular, plain, series 1 Raphael. Now, I really dont care for the endless variants of the TMNT, so I decided to make a kitbash Raph.

The recipe is

Cowabunga Cruisin Raph: Head and arms, and weapons
Camo-Bandana Armor Raph: torso and legs

Be kind guys, it's really my first successful custom.

all the weapons in NM were funny colors. Not the NM show, the NM toy line. They are all some shade of blue or purple. Even more shocking than that, is that Mikey has traded his chuks in for Tonfas.

He came with them...sometimes. Mine did come with red sais, but some came with purple.

And Mikey used tonfas in the series as well since chucks were still taboo in Europe.

ya, chucks are still frowned upon in the UK i guess. I saw a movie once where this guy was fighting using chucks, and i hear that the movie shows what they really do to people. pretty extreme. he was cracking people's heads open with em, and breaking arms and legs and stuff. So I totally understand why they switched. And really a tonfa is just like the nightsticks that the cops carry, so it's alot more of a positive image.

I think they should have given Mikey a chainsaw, J/K.:P Lumberjacks have them, so it's all cool.:D

You did a great job on the custom Raph. Very Awesome.:)
