Freeman's Collection

Well, it's been a while since I joined the drome and even though I'm not as active as I'd wish to be (mainly because sometimes I find too hard to make clear my pov expressing myself in english AND because of lazyness ^_^U) I think the time has come to share my collection with all of you.

The main theme on my case is to portrait as many incarnation of the turtles as possible. Yet sometimes I find a series is not aesthetically appealing enough to put may hands on it.

As I live in Spain and we don't usually have access to basements here unless you are insulting rich (you guessed, not my case) the space issue is also a matter to have in mind when building up my collection and having it displayed.

Right now my figures take most of the walls in the guests room/computer room of my flat. We have a glass cabinet in the living room but I have non-tmt stuff there too (guests like my varied cabinet).


Without further ado, ladies and gentlemen, here is my humble collection.



Could not start with any other set than the Playmates Cold Cast Statues. Of course Donatello is yet missing (note the "YET"), but I'm determinated to resolve that sooner or later.



Next I should mention are more emotional and less Holly Grial, but in any case some figures I could never take away from me: the turtles I used to play with when I was a kid. Funny thing is that every one of them is from a different set, and maybe this marked my intention to get as many different turtles version as possible.



As some of you may already know, I like to have my figures in their original blister. I know toys are suppossed to be played with, and I really can't wait to become a father and try to pass on my turtle love to my kids and see them play and bite their figures, but as an Advertising proffesional, the original package and overall toyline design add some facet to each series that I want to keep for the sake of variety. Let's go with my boxed turtles.

25th Anniversary Turtles


Classic Collection Splinter & Shredder (wish they were anniversary edition too)


The allmighty NECA series
Leo & Raph


Don & Mickey

Now for the Nick series. I tend to limit myself just to the turtles, but these came as a birthday gift from my GF who got me all four turtles, Splinter, April and Shredder. She did not buy Krang and Foot Soldier because they were "too ugly", so I had to track those two for a few month and therefore complete the "10 back" series.

Funny story: the Raphael she got for me had a terrible paintjob on the face bandana. She perfectly knew that I would not accept such a thing, but there was no more left on the store and my birthday was to come, so she bought it knowing we'd have to go back to change it for another Rapahel the very next week. When we got to ToysRus the casher thought that I wanted another turtle, she could not understand that I could want another specimen of the exact same toy

Four brothers


April and Master Splinter


Shredder, Krang and Foot Soldier (last two have german blister )


A few months ago we visited Japan ( a country everyone should visit a least once to have and everlasting memory of what politeness and social etiquette should be) and there I found some figures I could not resist to because they all had japanese blisters. With my "only turtles" promise broken, I can only expect worse from now on...

Toddler Turtles and Metalhead


Dogpound, Fishface and Mousers


Also in Akihabara we found a little shop carrying only american merchandise, from Ghostbuster vintage figures to Kellogg's Tony The Tiger plush toys. There I got this

Collector Figure Fugitoid


Kidrobot Leonardo and Keychain Shredder


Movie Cards

Throwback funky action figures!!

These are the Wacky Action series that were found at a local toy store in their original 198X warehouse box. All are in fantastic conditions and I am considering to have them graded.

Leo & Raph


Donnie & Mickey


Splinter & Shredder


And from the time Playmates also did some funny and bizarre figures we have...

Leo, The Sewer Samurai & Raph, The Space Cadet


Don, The Undercover Turtles & Mike, The Sewer Surfer


These came from the same shop and are also in fantastic condition, but unfortunately have french blisters...

Karma has been nice lately with us TMNT fans and after many years of oblivion we are again target of toy industry companies.

I could not resist myself to this set when it came out, and I even did a direct order to Japan with all the extra shipping and custom fees and everything

Revoltech Series


I dig how Donnie looks on that pose

Mikey loves pizza!!!


We are also lucky that not all turtles sets are as expensive as the Revoltech.

Boxos Papercraft Set

With the Nick show beeing a great hit all over the world, it has been really easy to spot some random merchadise related to our green friends. As much as I tried to hold on myself, some stuff finally ended up on my shelves too.

Mc Donald's Happy Meal Mask Set + Promo Happy Mutant Box






Candy Duo Spray (for some strange reason, only 3 different flavours...)


Zahor Chocolates (well known Spanish brand)


McVitie's Chocolates biscuits (found at the Nickelodeon are of the Madrid Theme Park)




Mini Phoskitos Box with prize (uber famous spanish chocolate tenders. Only got Raph and Mikey, never really liked phoskitos...)


Maybe I have a Leonardo here, but we'll never know


Arluy biscuits (Acording to their website they also make chocolate versions, but they appear to be impossible to find in my area... Liked the chocolate version blister best)
