NECA Movie TMNT figures going to add Tatsu and Keno?


Not the greatest likenesses, but interesting.

I'm sure those are custom figures.

I wouldn't be surprised at all to see Keno added eventually, but my understanding is that Toshishiro Obata is quite elusive in terms of obtaining a likeness license.

The more I looked at it the more wondered just that.

At first I thought it was a NESA display at a convention or trade show.

And IDW was told the name Tatsu was "off the table" so there is clearly an issue with him.

That’s weird. Nick was able to use Tatsu.

In a recent interview with the director of the Neca line they have not been able to reach Obata. It was an issue of the lack of ability to connect with him more than him saying 'no'. It was something that he is currently working to resolve.
