    These are the Playmates Classics TMNT figures the way I think they should've been made in the first place! I gave their weapons cartoon accurate colors, the straps on Leonardo and Donatello were removed, their belt buckles are now cartoon accurate and I added just a little bit of lining, in the same style the NECA turtles were painted, but much more subtle, since the cartoon style of the cartoon was very simple looking, so that's the way I went here. I also fineshed the whole look with a matt lacquer, that way I got rid of the plastic shine they had, and now they look totally cartoony and fit more with something Mezco could've done (like their South Park and Scott Pilgrim lines)

    Great work! I love the black wash in the teeth. Really gives them a cartoony feel! Awesome!

    This is flat out genious and well done. It is amazing to see with some custom work how much better they look!

    Absolutely amazing work on these. But everything you do is golden. Always. I've said it before numerous times, but it bears constant repeating whenever possible - your custom work is truly OUTSTANDING. It's among the very best out there IMO, and quite possibly my personal favorite due to your consistently pleasing aesthetic and stylistic choices. You are just unreal at this stuff. :D 

    These really are PERFECT though. I can't wait to see how you salvage those miserable-looking Movie Turtles coming out in the future. The decos in the prototype pics for those was beyond disappointing. I'm betting you'll make them over perfectly just like these bad boys. I seriously cannot wait to see what you do with them.

    If you didn't have such a great reputation for customs I'd swear this was all photoshop work.

    Truly amazing work here, man.
