    Still a WIP, but I'm putting the finishing touches, details and cleanup on the rest of the TMNT team!

    Really sweet, dude :thumb :thumb 
    I especially like the different greens but all of them look great all over. Is their a specific reason why Leo and Donnie have the inside of their head crest painted in their respective signature color and Raph and Mikey the edge around it?
    And are all of their weapons from Shapeways?

    That would fit quite well to me with her antennas, speaker ears and forehead display.

    From CW Onslaught. The headsculpts would match well.

    For the Torso... definitely using Onslaught, although I'm "swinging" towards another character...

    Yes, weapons are all from Trent Troop's Prize Inside over on Shapeways. Donnie's staff is made from 5mm peg extenders and the rest is a set he made for Nightbird!

    As far as the head paint, I just wanted to mix it up ‍♂️

    That is awesome! Can't wait for the Torso, whoever that may be. "Swinging" made me think Spiderman at first, but that's just stupid...
    Casey Jones?

    That was my first guess, too. Onslaught would fit the character pretty well. But why not have several torsos? :D 

    They look really cool but Shapeways is so fricking expensive especially if you want the parts with a smooth surface. I will definitely get the 5 mm peg extenders because this set will help me a lot with my customs but I think my TMNTs will get another set of Matrix Workshop's Nightbird weapons set. It only costs $15 in smooth print quality and there's a staff for Donnie which can split into two scythes, a katanna for Leo (and as I'm doing a Rise of the TMNT custom he only needs one) two sais for Raph and two shurikens. Only Mikey's left out but I'll put something together out of other weapons or the 5 mm extension set for his kusari fundo(s).

    I bet there's a Fallen headsculpt on Shapeways somewhere that would a make a nice Casey. This is a great project. Can't wait to see the result.
    What are the alt modes going to look like? I'm not familiar with Rook's transformation, but it doesn't look like the traditional Turtle Van is possible. Hopefully I'm wrong.

    That's a great idea. Otherwise RiD 2015 Megatronus' head with the deployed facemask version head might be great, too. Or Generations Warpath.
    Rook's alt mode doesn't make a great Party Wagon but I think the alt mode fits very well as a TMNT's vehicle mode.

    I did Donatello months ago. I focused more on bot mode than alt mode with this project and specifically using Rook because I liked the "shell" look his transformation gave him. Alt mode was secondary.

    For the Turtle Van I have a Towline figure I plan on using...at least until I see what Earthrise Ironhide looks like.
