I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving.

I finally found a 142 set of TMNT miniatures in the 2nd packaging style. I updated this post with the current state and updated images of my DH minis collection. Still looking for 4 sets. Maybe when I'm done I'll try to get an extra set of each to open and paint.



I recently picked up this Scat book because I thought it was cool. Outside of designing the logo and co-founding the book, I don't think Laird had anything to do with this issue.


Thanks about those background buttons in the post above. Here's a full image of it in the shadowbox:


I cleaned up the thread a little and removed some items I've sold or traded. Thanks for looking and happy holidays.

Another new vintage original art addition. Leonardo by Rick McCollum, 1990. Based on his issue of TMNT: volume 1, #37. I don't think this art was ever published. If anyone knows differently, let me know.
I picked it up from a friend at a very fair price. There are really some great people in this community. The piece is pretty large at 14" x 17", so it won't fit in any of my portfolios. I guess it'll have to be a wall piece!

A new acquisition inspired me to start a little project. I found another cel from the season 1 episode "Shredder and Splintered".
It's from the end of the episode where Krang tells the Shredder to climb on his back and they fly away. This is how it originally arrived, with an incorrect background:



I looked at the DVD and noticed it would be hard to Photoshop a clean background for this scene. I decided to digitally paint a new one instead,
using the original as a reference. I painted Shredder to be on a separate layer since he's in front of Krang. Also, I sampled my colors from the original DVD screenshot:



I printed each layer out separately. The background is printed on card stock and Shredder is printed on photo paper to give him that extra shine and cel look.
I cut Shredder out and laid him over Krang for the composite. Here's the final result. I'm not too happy with the quality of the prints. I may get better quality prints in the future.
The other problem is Shredder seems just a little bit too big. Just a little experiment I wanted to share!

Just added some new blue line coloring pages from the First Graphic Novels. The original watercolors are by Steve Lavigne 1988. A reproduction of the Eastman and Laird linework on acetate is placed over the original paints on each piece. These pages come from the 4th graphic novel:

Issue 10 final page:


Issue 11 title page:


Issue 11 April splash:


Again, the April theme in my original art collection grows stronger. There's just something about cool April pages.


Also new is a Dark Horse Miniatures set from 1986. On page 1 of this thread you can see the collection so far. I've been trying to find every set in every single type of packaging, which equals 24 sets. The acquisition of this set leaves 3 more to find. Thanks to a fellow dromer for this set!



As always thanks for looking and happy collecting

It's been a while since I updated, but I wanted to share a few new finds.

Talk about rare. In the 20 years I've been looking for the iron-ons, I've only known of 3 Michelangelos to exist unused. I paid a rather high fee to nab this one, but it's worth it to add another to the collection. I still need about 6 or 7 to complete the set.



Speaking of which, in an act of similarity, right before I found the above item, I acquired this original piece based on the same art, drawn by Steve Lavigne. What a coincidence. I love the vibrant colors in this one.


I also recently picked up this 1985 piece. It was used as a pin-up page in Tales of the TMNT, volume 1, #2, and also drawn by Steve Lavigne. It's based on Frank Miller's style in "The Dark Knight Returns".


Thanks for looking.

Great finds dude.
Sounds like your getting closer and closer to completing the set. That will be a great feeling when the day comes.

Thanks man. Yeah it's almost a fool's errand trying to collect all of them, but I do know that at least 1 of every single one exists, so there may be more out there.

Ok, time for an update. While I've been busy working on my Amazing Spider-man run, I've also been getting a few new TMNT items here and there.

I recently acquired some original inking sheets from 1984 and 1985. These are copies of original art that Eastman and Laird used to practice inking and sometimes color. All of these sheets were unused in that respect, so no original art, but they still feature some really cool art!


I also recently acquired these 2 pages of art from the final issue of City At War. I love the final story arc of volume 1, and it's great to add a couple more pages to my collection.


Also new to the collection are these, 3 more iron-ons from 1986. Pretty cool that 2 of them are variants of ones I already have. Always cool to find new ones of these colossal pains-in-the-ass to find:


Here's the current iron-on collection. Let me know if you have any for sale that I don't have.


Last but not least, A few con-like sketches from Ryan Brown, Mark Bode and Simon Bisley.


That's all of my TMNT acquisitions as of late. Hope you enjoy and thanks for looking.
