General Traag 1987

General Traag based on his appearance in the first season of the original TMNT cartoon. The original 1989 General Traag figure was about the same height as the turtles and looked completely different than his cartoon appearance, so I decided to customize it to be toon accurate. Took the original Traag figure and repositioned head/limbs and made taller, and completely sculpted over the whole figure using Aves Apoxie Sculpt. Painted the figure with enamel and acrylic paints. Gun is from 1992 "April" figure, and sculpted a new holster for it with Kneadatite. Also sculpted an additional gun with apoxie trying to replicate the cartoon gun, my first attempt at sculpting accessories. So here he is, Krang's #1 Rock Soldier, General Traag.

Oh damn, that's a much more appealing-looking toy!

Also, on our similarly patterned names...
