Invasion of the Punk Frogs

Used vintage Napoleon body and arms, and used vintage Genghis head, hands, and legs, and used apoxie sculpt to customize the base figure. Made all 4 punk frogs toon accurate Genghis Frog, Napoleon Bonafrog, Atila the Frog, Rasputin the Mad Frog. Painted everything wiith acrylic and enamel paints. Customized some accessories as well.



Genghis Frog


Napoleon Bonafrog


Atila the Frog


Rasputin the Mad Frog

I love them. The Punk Frogs are my favorite allies of the Ninja Turtles. I was disappointed in getting just half of them and Napoleon Bonafrog looked nothing like he is supposed to. I would love to see one for sale one day!

These Punk Frogs look great! That's a very well done job. Just wondering TurtleManiac, do you ever offer customs like this for sale or make a specific one for someone by request?

I like 'em!

Even if I still can't match their names to their cartoon designs.

Thanks! Yeah I suppose from a manafacturerís perspective, probably made more sense not to make all 4 frogs, and to change Napoleonís appearance so drastically.

Thanks! No I havenít done any commisions, just making these for myself is already so time consuming. I have sold a few customs from time to time, just to free up some space for new ones.

Hey thanks! I tried to make them as cartoon accurate as I could.

Thanks! Making these actually helped me telling each frog apart easier, since I really had to study their appearance. I will go back and put their names next to each off their individual pics.

After seeing these in pics I notice a few things here and there that could be improved. I will go back and touch these up in a few weeks when I get back from vacation. Might possibly make more toon accurate axe for Genghis.

Yeah I totally understand that. If you ever do get some free time someday and you would want to make an Archie TMNT Adventures inspired figure (maybe as a challenge, something different, etc.), we could talk about it in a pm. Either way the Punk Frogs are great. Great job on those!

Great job on these, TM! The MOTU axe for Genghis made me smile.
