Finally got around to it and worked on a batch of the movie figs. Turned out really well. Applied my basic gritty style with touches of skin tone and coloration. Highlighted the muscles with a thin layer of yellow on top of the shading color. The shading is a mix of green, black, brown, and hint of white. Repainted the front and back shells. Decided to go the "dirty" look with the front out of curiosity.

Highlighted the teeth with a gloss white. Darkened the eyes. Painted nails a bone color (white & chrome yellow). Battle pads were painted with a leather base and washed with a black & a hint of red. The belts are real leather made from scraps. Gave Raph the front said holsters (not really fond of how they look but oh well). Haven't made metal sais for raph yet. I took a 2003 Leo back sheath and trimmed it down to fit this one. Mike has the side holsters for his chucks like in TMNT:SOTO. Also made a yo-yo for him using waxed thread and a side-mount bead. Donnie's belt turned out well and fits the wooden bo-staff nicely. The staff is not heavy and sits well. The figures were missing the bandanna extensions so I went with cloth attachments and used adhesive to pose them. I like the ripped look for the bandanas so I was not as tedious in cutting them out since they realistically would be weathered.

The glass bottle is filled with "turtle slime" that I bought at target last week. I used a syringe to get in in the bottle and minimize bubbles. It has a cork top. Will be selling some of these with my sets. A really easy project any of you can do.

These were my actual toys as a kid. Hopefully I can obtain another set and sell them on here. If you have these guys in hand already, send me a PM for custom prices.

Nice work. One thing I'd suggest changing is Mike's 'chuks - in the movies, he used 'chuks with cord rather than chain.

Getting your approval is good enough for me haha

Yeah I had a pair of those laying around with chains and used em. I'll work on another set and post em soon.

Hey, I'm a sucker for well-done movie-style customs!

If you wanted to get really anal, you could make hexagonal 'chuks - that's one little touch I really liked, that Mike had Japanese-style 'chuks as opposed to the Chinese-style ones he normally has...

I have 3 of the 4 stare turtles from this set and custom painted them to look like this but with the comic style headbands and eyes/weapons. I LOVE these customs. How much would you charge to custom paint a set like this just the turtles, no need to make custom weapons or anything..

Oh wow. This is nice.

Loved Leo's katana. The long handle kinda reminds me of cloud strife's buster sword. Awesome

Been working on some ooze. Have both original TCRI green and new kraang pink slime. Also a weapon rack with the idea that it was put together in the sewers using scraps.

Pretty happy with them. Thought Leo's expression looked MUCH more like Donatello in the first movie so I switched those two. Also made Mike from Don's body. Leo is now Mike:teek:

Taking offers for these over on the other forum.
