'Tis indeed! I have never seen the movie, but I've always been curious about it and eager to photograph some of the toys, two of which I scored in the same trade that brought two Nick sewers to my doorstep.

I can't link to it, 'cause it was on Facebook, a place I mostly hate for precisely that reason; it's counterintuitive to navigate and impossible to utilize as an archive. I started threads on forums and I can retrieve them in three seconds with a google search even if they're years old, but if I share a photo in a Facebook group tonight I'll waste tons of time trying to find it next week. Unfortunately, particularly where G.I. Joe is concerned, all the discussion seems to be gravitating towards Facebook.

Anyhoo, such is my selfless dedication and heroism that I downloaded the photo for you. Thank me with cash.



As far as I'm concerned the talented bastard owes me the cost of a sewer or two, 'cause I was mostly content with keeping mine as-is until I saw this!

That is impressive. By the by, Warriors of Virtue is not a particularly good film... though if I recall, there were some neat fight scenes with the Roos.

Yeah, if I haven't seen it by now I'm sure I never will. I thought it seemed interesting, but I'm sure I'm not missing much. I just recently learned that the Roos were reused from Tank Girl.

Also, here's another agonizingly awesome repaint:

Muckman and his McFarlane counterpart:



Mikey with his new skateboard:



Repainted Classics Bebop and Rocksteady are in hand. Hoping to photograph them on Saturday!

Thank you, notorious, for the kind words. No exact answer re: the size of the sewer at the moment, but I can say I opened the second sewer I received in the trade, and now they're side by side and my toy room is a disaster!

Meanwhile...





Now, you might think you realize just how badass is my buddy heymilt's paint work here, but my friends, you are mistaken. (He fixed Rocksteady's legs for me, too!) Behold, courtesy of Newton Gimmick at Infinite Hollywood, some before-and-after context:











Heymilt has outdone himself! And this is to say nothing of all the awesome extras he threw in, like the gerry can and Rocksteady's gun in that last portrait and a bunch of things I haven't even photographed yet.

Thanks, also, to my friend Ciarda, who found some affordable Classics figures in Ireland and shipped them directly to heymilt for me.

Meanwhile, last night I received three vehicles from the 2003 series, so it's a safe bet that there will be more photos soon.

Thanks for checking out Bebop and Rocksteady, folks!

How does a toy factory fudge up something as simple as legs?
Switched mine around, and must say that those were two of the most stubborn pegs I have ever dealt with.
Had to laugh. Not only were the calves on backwards but on the wrong legs to boot.

I scored some Mousers in a trade.



I'm a bit meh about them, and I'm glad I found that out in a small-scale fashion, 'cause I missed out on an overseas auction for, like, hundreds of Mousers. I was all butthurt about it, 'cause I'd planned to put together a massive invasion for a photo shoot... but now that I have seven or eight of the little buggers, I don't particularly like their insubstantiality or the way they pose, so that's a bullet dodged, then.

Still, I like that photo. I reckon it's surveillance footage from some Technodrome security feed.


I also scored in a trade a vintage Ace Duck:



Next, I captured a brief action scene between Michelangelo and Bebop:



I got a hell of a deal on some 2003 vehicles; the Battle Shell van, the Sewer Slider go-cart and the Shell Cycle, all for $30 shipped.




The van and go-cart serve the Nick Turtles nicely.



Finally, Rocksteady gets a workout, and Donatello recruits a Turkish electronics mascot to serve as Metalhead 2.0:

Wow. I haven't updated this thread since October!

Aaaand I never bought any paint, and my Nickelodeon sewer has been in my daughter's room for a month. I still hope to start practicing with paint someday, but the problem is that I never want to spend money on it because there are always tons of toys I'd rather buy! However, making my way through this thread again reactivated my interest somewhat, so we'll see...

Anyhoo, I happen to have captured a few Turtle portraits since my last update:











Thanks for checking 'em out!

I can relate to not wanting to buy paints. I have to force myself to but me ones.

Back when I was planning to put together a custom sewer, good ol' Heymilt sent me a beautifully weathered section of wall to inspire me... and even though I decided I'd rather spend my money on toys than paint, it occurred to me that I could still capture a photo of the wall:



Meanwhile, 3A's breathtaking Donatello reminded me how much I like the hectic, busy design of the Michael Bay Don (none of the other Turtle designs did much for me), so I added a bunch of gear to my Nick Don to emulate that look:

Forgot to add this photo from a few weeks ago; Leo wielding NECA Jungle Disguise Dutch's bow for a bit of "Mystic" flair ('cause I sure as hell ain't buying those crappy Mystic figures with no paint apps!):

Really like what you have done with Don there, (as much as i hate to admit it) taking inspiration from the movie Don there works.

Hoping to see more of Leo with the jungle kit
