I was about to write that it was a hard one to build, and it was technically challenging, but seeing as I built it in one evening I can't really call it hard.

Thanks guys, I appreciate the kind words.

I bought bricks to complete the builds I previously posted as renders. Here's the full fleet of all of my custom TMNT vehicles. I'll try to make a setup for making some nice photos later on, so I can showcase all of the new ones more nicely

You can find instructions in my previous posts, each one has the parts list at the back. Then you go to BrickLink and buy the bricks you need. That's what I do, after I design them I go and buy bricks I need to make them

Oh my, it's been almost a month since I posted those new TMNT builds and I promised closeup photos of each.

So let us start. First up, the last one designed, the Technorover!
It's kind of in scale with the cartoon version, maybe slightly smaller. Unfortunately it can't fit into Technodrome's bottom floor like the Transport Module can. One thing left to be done is a small Foot logo sticker for the front of the vehicle.




The instructions:

PS: I don't feel comfortable selling the instructions, but if anyone is willing to donate it'll help recuperate some of the money I spent on buying parts

Flying Rock Soldier Jeep

Continuing, thou slowly, with the next Dimension X vehicle. Seems to be a bit too big to be flying out of the portal

Footski and Sewer Jetski

I'm happy that the snakes work so well in brick form as they did in 3D model.

Those snakes are certainly impressive!

As a bit of a commentary on the show, I love how the Turtles started out with "Turtle Tubes" and were absolutely ran-sacked by the Footskis (in the episode "Bye, Bye Fly" with the comment being made "Those Footskis are awesome!") which ended up in the Turtles getting Sewer Skis of their own and basically trashing the inferior tubes.

I haven't watched the show in a long time. I'll look up this episode, I don't remember it right now.

I've no idea why I'm not posting all this much faster. I guess, with the new job and now being sick (yes, it's covid19, thankfully I'm OK, just a loss of smell for now), I kinda lack the will to do stuff.

But let me continue with two artillery ones
Double Barreled Plunger Gun
Retrocatapult

Out of all of my builds, this two are the most fragile, specially the Retrocatapult. They don't fall apart right away, but they don't feel as sturdy as some other stuff I made. Definitely a display and not a play pieces. I did make a cartoon grey/white Plunger Gun too, but I prefer the toy colours. (I wasn't able to acquire two green wheel rims so for now I used orange ones, still looks good)

Sewer Party Tube and Sewer Army Tube

I've done this two mostly after the toy look, but the colour scheme is quite off, due to the lack of parts in proper colour. I've added a couple of images of the original toys.

Since these are a mix of Lego and Mega parts I can't do proper instructions like I made for all my previous builds.

Chanel 6 News Van
I've used the Turtle Van as a base for building the news van, that's why its a bit out of scale with the figures, but I wanted both to look good next to each other. One issue I had when buying pats was that the plate with a bar (that is on every door of the van) is quite rare in this blue colour, so I settled with a light grey one for the back doors. At the end I've chucked in a couple of photos of my Burne Thompson attempt (not the best, but from a far, when you squint, between some other figures...)
