The original Ninja (as opposed to Hero) Turtles Michelangelo figure in about 1991 - although Raphael was my favourite - either I just wanted Breakfightin' Raphael and they didn't have any or they didn't have any Raph figures at all - they did have the Storage Shell figures though.

I bought Michealangelo and a Foot Soldier for my birthday in 89.

The big stand of TMNT toys in the toyshop was such a cool thing, I've never forgotten it.

1989 Christmas at Grandmas'

Wacky Action Rock N' Roll Michaelangelo + Foot Soldier
Turtlecycle

Mikey has always been my favourite. Despite I wanted the original one, I guess that was too hard to find and these two came together on some sort of sale pack.

Not a vehicle collector, but I wanted the Party Vagon too bad and was out of my parents reach, so mum wanted to know wich vehicle would I enjoy 'If Santa could'nt bring the Vagon'. I loved playing with that motorcycle and making Mikey arm spin at extra speed. Still got the figure (displayed, along with the rest of brothers I eventually got when I was a child), but I recon we gave the turtlecycle to the Curch.

Michaelangelo on a quick visit to Children's Palace in 1988. Been going ever since. Oddly enough, just today I got my SH Figuarts Michaelangelo figure from BBTS!! Can't wait to get home and crack it open.

I can't remember which one was my first....

However, I had a Raphael original, a Donatello turtle troll, and and sewer speaking mikey? it had the microphone type shell. I think I got those all at the same time now that I think about it.


Those were the best.

Original soft head Raph and Shredder, along with the Cheapskate. Man, Raph on that Cheapskate is such a nostalgic thing for me. I wanted him with it so badly on my first TMNT toy buying outing, and all because of the package art. And that Cheapskate kicked the ever-loving crap out of Shredder for days on end lol.

I got Baxter and a Wacky-Action Mouser weeks after that and Shredder made them take on all the abuse then. Appropriate, of course.

I don't remember, but it was either head droppin' Donnie or Wacky Action Mikey. Mikey's arm broke and I lost Donnie. After that I got Mutatin' Raph and Lifegaurd Leo, and replaced the other two with Super Mike and cartoon Donnie. This rounded up my tmnt "roster" until I was about 11 and got the original 4 turtles to replace them. But those four have a special place in my heart.

My older brother had some before me but I distinctly remember bringing Raphael the Space Cadet home from Beattie's Toys when I was 3 or 4. My Mum thought he was ridiculous. I thought he was awesome!

Was TMNT in Spain already by Christmas 1989? Didn't hit Sweden until August 1990.

I don't have a good picture in my mind, so I may be wrong, but I think I got Wacky Action Raph and Mike, as well as Usagi and Baxter on the same day.

My very first TMNT figure in the 80s, was the original Rocksteady (soft head).
I became soooo obsessed with ninja turtles that I begged and begged for a turtle figure every week. My step dad ended up taking me to two different TRUs and all I could find were some of the secondary characters. NO turtles. I ended up grabbing Rocksteady, because no way would I go home empty handed.

While I was really bummed to not find a turtle, I did fall in love with my Rocksteady figure and would stare at it for days... I was between 9 and 10 years old then. I didn't finally get my first actual turtle figure, until I turned 11. I managed to buy a loose Raphael figure from another kid friend and then later, my mom finally grabbed me the other 3 figures which, by then, were available almost everywhere. The hype was dying down a bit. Only a bit. Unfortunately (and fortunately) by that time, I was already getting out of playing with toys too. So my figures remained mostly on display and thus, I still have every single one of them today in near new looking condition.

Prior to me getting the turtles, I improvised and made myself a set of paper turtles and a shoe box sewer, with only an actual Rocksteady figure to work with. haha

sigh.

The original Raphael figure. It's the only figure I didn't keep the card from, after that I saved all the cards.

The soft head original Donatello was my first TMNT figure. I still remember one evening of my whole family going to Target and my stumbling onto the TMNT toy line for the first time in the toy aisle there and Donatello somehow became the first TMNT I ever got.

I don't know what drew me specifically to him first, but I know within the next few months I would get the entire first wave of TMNT figures and the Party Wagon.

Funny thing is since that time, every time a new TMNT line comes out, I make sure I get Donatello first still...as kind of a nod/tribute to my past I guess.

Don's bo was removable.
I still have those 3. And it was them that I played with for about a month before I got the actual figures, this back in 1990, or something like that.
