I cannot get over how the completely different helmets in TMNT I and TMNT II are the exact same prop.
It's only the brown portion of the helmet that was re used. The blades are completely different.

The part 1 blade is hollow, very light, and I'd be surprised if this was the only top blade that survived. on the behind the scenes YouTube clip you see the stunt shredder actor flipping over into a think mat and im sure several broke while filming or at least cracked.

the part 2 blade is solid and heavy fiberglass, and is screwed on in the front.

Some history on it. Drome member Navin Johnson mentioned in prior posts, that all 3 helmets were re used for the 2nd film. So technically a part 1 helmet didnt exist. After part 1 finished filming the original creator of the 1st Shredder helmet did not return for the sequel, but they re used what was left over.

This helmet in particular was in need of repairs and missing the silver trim that covered parts of the gold squares. It also had a top blade from part 2 that was latex rubber and warped. It was actually stuck under another part 2 helmet until I purchased it from another drome member

Since I had the top blade from the first film as well, I had Tom Spina convert it back to the original part 1 helmet. Some of the gold squares were glued,which created smooth areas, so I called on Tom Spina to complete a sympathetic restoration. In the photo above the blade is slightly higher than where its supposed to be, so he lowered it before returning to my possession.
You are the one person in the world I am truly jealous of! If you ever want/need to get rid of any of that shredder gear please let me be the first you make inform! For real!

Haha thanks. My plans were to have everything on display in Seattle for the 30th anniversary at MOPOP but sadly due to the covid19 it has been postponed.

In the near future they will be there if anyone would like to see them in person.

I've never seen another. This was purchased from production assistant Leo Daniels

Due to the lack of throwaway funds that would equal its proposed value I would settle for getting a photo wearing it.

Its interesting reading the history of my favorite villain's gear!

Now that is something to bring on Pawn Stars! Who was it that found a production assistant's jacket at a Goodwill? Okay so, with Secret of The Ooze being my favorite film, now I am officially jealous too!

Screen shot of the Raphael's Sai. An interesting fact was the one April held before it was kicked away is different from when Raphael reaches for it.

Here is a picture of all 4 original weapons from the original 1990 movie. The nunchucku are foam rubber and were used whenever there was fighting involved.

You can see him holding them when he Spins on the floor in the apartment and the iconic scene where he says I love being a turtle.

In the film, you can tell which are the real wood Chuck's because they have a longer leather chord

(just imagining)

Rick: Hey Chum get over here.

(Chumlee lazily walks over the Rick)

Rick (sighs) So how much did you want for those TMNT props?

Collector: I was thinking $20,000.

Rick (sighs) Look you know I need to make a profit. How does $500 sound?


Yea I don't see it working out well...

I could see that line being the end of the segment. Why not call an old buddy of his Kevin Eastman to verify next time he passed through? If nothing else Geoff gets to meet Kevin! Probably get higher than $500. Rick would go into I got to put it up at an auction for a fee and I need a profit so I have to low ball you, but give you a respectable amount. I could see Rick offering between 60 to 65% of the value any of the items. This would be an interesting set to see if Geoff wants to get a line to producers. Rick is traveling for segments now too if Geoff does not want to lug it out there.

Love looking at your props Geoff. May you know, but why haven't those chuck deteriorated in all these years. I mean it's foam latex too right?

You can see the bit of tape (or whatever that material is) hanging down on the right side of that sai in the film and the prop in present day.

Yes one of my sais that April holds before getting kicked away matches mine, and can be matched on the Topps movie cards.

When it's kicked away its my other Sai that he picks up. Which you can match because of the leather bit like you stated pulling away from the prong.

They didn't really need continuity on them as the movie was dark and they look so similar it's hard to tell unless you have them in hand to compare.

I'm not 100% sure on the material. I was told it's foam rubber. Not sure if that's the same as foam latex. It's still soft in most areas but I don't want to squeeze it.

There is wood inserted inside so they don't flop around.
