Playmates 1988 10-Back Repaint (Classic Cartoon Colors)



Hello everyone, haven't posted customs here in a while because my Windows XP computer doesn't work with Flickr anymore, so I just started using Imgur and it works.

Finished painting this set several months ago, wanted to do simple straight repaints of the earlier vintage TMNT figures to match the cartoon colors. No physical modifications done other than cutting out a new gray shirt for Shredder and swapping Splinter's robe with that of Shogun Splinter. Used acrylic and enamel paints, I have repainted:

1988 - Raphael, Michelangelo, Leonardo, Donatello, Splinter, Shredder, Foot Soldier, Bebop, Rocksteady

1990 - April O'Neil

I am quite pleased with how they turned out, the original figures designs with different color scheme to match the original cartoon.

The turtles are wonderful! I'm very nostalgic for the classic color scheme of the original line but these just look perfect!
