That's amazing, Archon! Thanks for the pix!

Like agliarept, I've often wondered what happened to the weapons, stunt and hero.
Oh, and what about Casey's mask and The Shredder's helmet... Wonder what happened to those....

You are right agliarept, Michelan Sisti kept a number of nunchucks as well as a pair of turtle feet, but those disintegrated over time and he trew those away.

Awesome thanks raph!. I think the feet were the ones that disintegrated. The nunchukus should have been made of wood i think? or rubber if they were stunt ones. who knows!! I would sell all my props in my collection for that hero used nunchukus.

Yes, this is a warning to ALL who own Turtle suits, hands, feet, heads. There are one or two. I have seen what O2 can do to these things first hand. No matter what you think, they WILL go that way. Keeping them in class cabinets does not save them hahaha!! I can't offer the solution, just look into it!

Its true, something very sad no matter what. thankfully there's guy's like Tom over at Tom Spina designs who restored one of the original suits. sure it must cost a bunch of money but i always think anything TMNT related deserves to be preserved.

I figured as much but I had to ask. Those chucks, assuming they're almost exactly like one of the pair I have, would have to go through some hardcore weathering to rot.

If I was going to spend enough money to buy a genuine Turtle suit from the movie, I'd definitely go the extra mile and spend enough money to find a way to preserve it.

it's totally possible to preserve foam latex and foam rubber... you just have to take the proper precautions in display location and method. no sunlight, no humidity really helps.

as far as PROPS... i have 3 TGRI/TCRI canisters from SOTO... one prototype labeled TCRI that is a modified leftover from the first film, or stunt TGRI with "ooze" and foam endcaps, and an incomplete background version that's missing an endcap. i purchased a huge box of TGRI canisters years ago... i was the one selling them on here. i had the NINJA RAP IS BORN newspaper from 2, but i sold it a few years ago... really kicking myself on that one.

i heard a few weeks ago that the FULL hero shredder helmet/armor/suit from 1 is a private collection in iowa. i know of a few pieces of shredder rubber stunt armor from 1, a hero foot soldier mask, TMNT 2 hero 'chucks, TMNT 1 shell, aaaaaaannnddd... that's all that's coming to mind at the moment. props are VERY hard to come across from the TMNT films for some reason.

if it's a matter of just getting the shots, i know a GREAT DP/HD shooter in the UK that is a nut for classic sfx. i'm sure he would be all for it...

I would have killed for that Ninja Rap is born. Saw one on ebay that sold for a little over 300 and Im still crying over missing the auction. one of the worse times in my ebay history lol.

Would you ever consider selling any of your canisters. I know I would love one. .

I heard that the sais from raph had to be custom made for the turtles fingers being to think to hold? Someone on "yourprops" supposedly has one from the same place where it was manufactured. that would be nice to know where he got it.

Hey D! I thought that username sounded familiar... (I'm fixer79 on the ghostbusters boards)
I didn't know you had so much TMNT props... Too bad you sold all of them canisters. Would've loved to buy one.

I didn't know about the hero Shredder suit being in a private collection. I wonder if we'll ever see pictures of it.

Anyway, I wanted to share a picture with you guys 'n gals.
Mind you, I don't own the following prop, just scanned it in from an old Dorling Kindersley book on movies I've had since I was a kid. It's a fairly rare picture. I haven't seen it anywhere else, anyway.
It's the best picture of a 'hero' animatronic head and skull I've ever seen. Just thought I'd share it with y'all.





cheers,

Cliff
