Donatello (Cartoon Version) (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) Custom Action Figure
Custom #:40181
Name:Donatello (Cartoon Version)
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
Date Added:June 23, 2012
Base Figure:Donatello 1988 Playmates
Height:5.00 inches
Used original 1988 Donatello figure and customized it to look like his appearance in the original 1987 cartoon. Used Aves Apoxie Sculpt to fill in areas of the front and back of the shell, and changed the pattern on the back of the shell to match the cartoon. Sculpted a new belt directly onto the figure, in a lower position so that more of the upper body is showing above the belt line, like in the cartoon. Then completely repainted the figure and Bo Staff.

Update: I have sculpted an entirely new shell/belt onto the old one using Aves apoxie sculpt, upon realizing that on the cartoon the turtles have larger shells that can actually be seen over their shoulders. Also cut off the veins on the arms/forearms and covered the toenails with Aves apoxie sculpt. Then repainted the figure. Added new pics for the update.

thanks and yea feel free to use as a reference, originally the turtles bodies had those grooves around them for the rubber belts, so I decided to fill in the grooves and sculpt new belts onto them. The 2009 Donatello I made was just a toon turtles Don with an original Don head and repainted. And the tmnt I made before that were just repaints with a little bit of tweaks made to the belts. But these new ones I made I really focused on what needed to be improved from my previous tmnt, mainly the shells/belts
