2012 Classic TMNT painted "1988" style!

Took the 4 Classic Collection 2012 TMNT figures and accessories and completely re-painted them (except the plastron) to resemble the color scheme of the original Playmates toyline "1988". These large highly articulated figures were very challenging to paint compared to the smaller 5" figures I usually customize. Let me know what you think!

Inspired by the original TMNT Playmates Toys! "1988"

I think it's a big improvement in style!

Wow, these look ridiculously good. Soooooo much better than the standard versions. I sold my goofy ass set off to pay for the SH Figuarts, but if they re-released these in this color scheme, hot damn, I'd sell blood to cover the costs. Super badass. They seem awkward & generic on their own, but with your new paint job, presenting them as updated versions of the original toys, woooo! Beauties. I appreciate them a lot more in this light (even if they are still flawed in some ways).

Not sure how you got the paint colors so accurate but these look great! Nice job.
