View Full Version : TMNT and Blacklights?

Hey guys, long time no see! Its good to be back and I've got a question for ya.
Does anyone know of any good figures to display under blacklight? You know, glowing green and orange and so on... I have a little display on my mantle with some LEDs and I was wondering what else I could add that might fit in well.

Hey! Welcome back, dude. Nice to see you.

Any character with neon paint would be a good call, that's for sure. I think I'd put the Rock 'N Roll Turtles there. Others who come to mind that'd probably pop are Mondo Gecko, Napoleon Bonafrog, Pizzaface, Scaletail, Neutrinos... Surely others but I'm drawing a blank.

Share some pics if you set any up.

These are some pics I took of my display collection. What's interesting is the way not only certain colors react, but also certain plastics. For example it seems Baxter and Doughboy Bebop torsos light up but not so much for the limbs. Mikey on Cheapskate II looks rather rad.

Those pics are awesome.

Maybe the universal monster turtles also good timing considering Halloween is right around the corner. And the retromutagen ooze turtle could be cool. As well as Usagi and Panda Khan.

Just play around with what you have and go with what you like best.

I actually have a TMNT blacklight poster, still rolled up. Gotta find a place for it!

:o Those are some amazing Pics ToSTe!! I have a Technodrome and Party Wagon that look great under a blacklight but i just cant find a convenient place to position everything with the light hitting it.

Thanks for the ideas guys. Ive gotta dig up some of my old stuff and see what works. Here are a few pics of my mantle setup as of now. Im still moving stuff around and switching things so any and all input is appreciated!
I love the LEDs because I can cycle through any color I want. In fact, I usually just have it fading from one to another.
