Hello fellow realmers! This is my first entry in a set of Ninja Turtle/Avenger crossovers. I had the idea in my head for a while now and when I saw another member's Turtle/Lantern crossover I was inspired to give it a shot. I was lucky enough to find a Metalhead before vacation and when I got back I removed all limbs and cracked him open. I sanded down all joints to eliminate any rub and had a bit of a hard time using the metallic paints (it seemed like they wanted to rub off when applying a top coat). I used Tamiya metallic grey with two coats of Model Masters clear red over top, Tamiya chrome silver for the lighter metallics, and 2 coats of Model Masters gold. I made a special blend for Donnie's head because I like the original toy line colors better than the current. I extended the upper legs to give him some heigth and used a pair of Stealth Iron Man upper arms and some sculpt work to articulate the arms. Some more sculpt on the torso and random fodder for the arc reactor and BAM! It was done lol, I really enjoyed making this one and am looking forward to the rest of Avenger line-up. Thanks for looking and CC is welcome.

Definitely one of my instant favorites of your customs, brother! PURE GENIUS to use Metalhead to make an IronMan Donnie!
If you were referring to my TMLT Donnie, then I am deeply honored to have inspired you, brother.

Thank you very much, and yes it was your Lantern Turtle that gave me the extra nudge. I just wish my paints could turn out smoother (like yours lol), the photos make mine look more "sloppy" then they really are

I wouldn't say sloppy, brother. He has a nice, convincing, raw metallic look...reminiscent of a suit built from scrap parts in the sewers by Donnie, as opposed to a shiny, high-tech suit built by billionaire Tony Stark in a high-tech lab.
I believe the paint job is PERFECT for this IronTurtle, brother.

This is cool and I agree 100% if any of the turtles were to make an armoured suit it would have to be Donnie. Hulk for Raph without a doubt, maybe two figures for him?, a normal one and a hulked out one? Leo is a dead cert for Cap too. I guess Mikey has to be hawkeye by default. Ooooh you could even make that dang awful female turtle (venus??) into black widow. Anyhooo, excellent!!!

Awesome work bro. You should definitley do Raph as Hulk later on. Well you could make Mikey as Spiderman after all spidey joins the avengers later.

I like it! I see: Leo as Captain America Raphiel as Hulk and Mikey as...I'm not sure.

Yeah, it's strange because Mikey's attitude would make for a great Tony Stark. But, Donnie is the tech guy and if anyone was going to build a suit of power armour it would be HIM. Maybe, just make Mikey Hawkeye?

I could see Raph as either Thor (he is impulsive and has a bit of a temper in the movies), or Hulk. Maybe, have Casey Jones as Thor...

Splinter is totally movie Nick Fury.
