Thank you, sir!

Excellent, thanks! Oddly enough I'd received notification of refusal just an hour or two before receiving notification that you'd accepted and I'd won the item. I assume it automatically sends such a notice if an offer is made that doesn't meet a pre-set lowest acceptable price? I've never dealt with Make an Offer before.

Whatever the case, the motorcycle is gonna reside in the background in the sewer to suggest a Cowabunga Carl kind of deal, and I've had a dumb but fun idea for the Raph figure for several years. Looking forward to finally getting around to it.

I captured a few more Turtle portraits yesterday, too, so I should be sharing those soon.

Did you make more than one offer? I think your first offer was below the parameters I'd set, and your second offer was in between them, so everything was done automatically. I usually do it that way because it saves a lot of work for me. I can't wait to see what you do with it.

Ah, that explains it; I did indeed make two offers. Honestly, as much as anything else I was just experimenting to see how Make an Offer works, but that said, I'm glad I won the item.

Once I have Raph in hand I'll see whether I want to get the other three 'Toon Turtles... and I still want the movie star versions... and the 2003 versions... oy.

Those lair pieces look great, that weird Hot Wheels thing looks like exactly the kind of clutter they would have in the lair! The Fisher Price playset looks cool with the Turtles. I have the Fisher Price Major Powers playset which is a similar style and scale and I think it'll look great with some paint to bring out the details

Thanks! Coincidentally, I was studying your Flickr photostream again when I received notification of your comment. Your dioramas are so friggin' good, man!

I can help you with all of this. I've helped several people complete sets of figures. Just don't have me hunt down anything if you aren't serious about buying it. I seem to run into that problem alot.

Oh wow. I was just whining, it didn't occur to me you could get them.

That's messed up. Rest assured I wouldn't do that, and indeed I'll advise you not to pursue anything yet, 'cause unless my Rancor and/or Gipsy Danger sell, I won't have money anytime soon, especially for the movie star figures, which tend to go for much more than they're worth in my opinion. Also a buddy might be sending me his movie star figures so I can photograph them, and really that's all I need them for, so I'm not sure yet whether I'll pursue those.

What do you reckon it'd cost for the four Turtles from the 2003 series? I'd prefer them loose, and with black belts, and while I love articulation I'd prefer the initial releases to the Fighting Gear or any other articulated variant. I also wouldn't necessarily need their accessories, 'cause I don't care for them anyway; they're too cartoony. I'd probably just have them borrow the NECA accessories my Nick Turtles use.

If you just need them with their belts (which are black with a brown wash) I could probably get all four for between $30 and $40 shipped at the most.

That's pretty tempting. I'll see what I can do, but don't pursue anything yet. Alternately, I have trade stuff if you go that route. Thanks!

Depends on what you have. I can get you Don and Mike for $15 shipped.

In this latest ridiculous update, Sam and Twitch take a break from Rat City to investigate a persistent urban myth about humanoid turtles living in the sewer, while Sigma 6 Hi-Tech's H.O.U.N.D. droid serves as an modernized, streamlined Knucklehead (I added a Xevoz claw for giggles) and Leonardo goes on a spirit quest.

Thanks! In two days it earned more Favorites and comments than any other photo in my photostream!

Thank you very much!

A short update this time. I visited the thrift shop again, and again I scored a bunch of skate ramps! I want to reiterate that this thrift store has been utterly useless to me for years, and suddenly it's All Awesome, All the Time; in addition to the skate ramps, I also scored a broken train set which will be perfect for a weird Tonto photo I have wanted to capture for months. Huzzah!



Not bad, not bad... might work with some of the previous pieces...


Oh my god oh my god oh my god! Bricks! Stairs! Whoo-hoo!

I can just about build a cool lair using nothing but skate crap at this point!

Also, 'cause I alone never tire of photos of the Turtles under the bridge, I captured at least a couple-dozen new portraits today that I'll share once they're all on Flickr.

I also got a free item from a store because I asked what they'd be doing with it when their promotion was done and the vendor said I could have it. Photos tomorrow, most likely.

Finally, I visited the drive-in theater tonight for a second viewing of Guardians of the Galaxy... and a second viewing of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Good times.

And here we are.





If you have the vintage Turtle Blimp or the Nick Turtle Blimp, then you have a blimp that's far superior to mine. But if nothing else, the price was right!

I reckon Don stole the blimp and hasn't gotten around to giving it a makeover or weapons.

Mikey holding up the Millennium Falcon is probably my fave pic, but they all look great.
