Eastman Teases Walmart Exclusive

Kevin B. Eastman-

Working on a cover for a Playmates Walmart exclusive toy - that will include an edited reprint of TMNT issue one.
Accompanying image of the comic cover in progress:

Spoiler:




So it looks like we're getting another Mirage styled figure of some sort. Or perhaps IDW, though I doubt that. Interesting to note that it will be an "edited" reprint, I suppose the violence will be toned down, which suggests, to the surprise of no-one, this won't quite be aimed at adult collectors.

I am not a fan of the line much, which saddens me, but I am interested to see what comes of this

I guess it isn't a big deal if you keep it misb.
I hope whatever they're planning will be better than those awful comic turtle figures we had from the 2012 nick line with the awkward scratches on the figure used to represent shading.

Any update on this? Hadn’t seen anything, but with ToyFair being underway, just curious as to whether anyone saw anything or not.

No word on this since the now deleted Facebook post, no.

Fortunately, I had saved the pic, & just now edited it back into my original post. Have a look.

This is what I thought as soon as we saw the mirage artwork for the exclusive. I imagine it's the background of a window box where all 4 figures will be displayed in front of their respective parts of the art.

If playmates is making mirage tmnt again, they should refrain from sculpting trashy cross hatching into the Figure and just do decent paint apps.

I like this, the old school and good style, it's good that you saved the image because the link has been removed, it is enhanced by the information.

Choose one

That art seems cool, although it doesn't seem like anything new has come of this news
