TMNT Classic Shredder (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) Custom Action Figure
Custom #:45293
Name:TMNT Classic Shredder
Contest:Turtle Power!
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
Date Added:December 16, 2012
Base Figure:UFC/WWE
Height:7.50 inches

huff, huff... glad i was able to finish this in time...

The Classic Turtles need a Shredder to fight!
My goal was to match the line in scale and style
Playmates went for a different scale then what we are used to, when you see these figures in person, they're massive, and i wanted to have the same feeling with Shredder
So I sculpted everything over a UFC/WWE base figure
Blades made individually in plastic card then sculpted over, one by one, all 36 of them >_<
I gave him a personalized base(cast - no turtle base was harmed)
2 set of hands (fists and holding)
his communicator(so he can talk to krang in dimension x)
and a sword i've had in my fodder for ages, that i always felt was very technodromical, with the handle remade for Shredder to be even more ninja!(i have no idea where it came from, but if i didn't use it now...:)

Thanks for viewing! I hope the style is appreciated by the fans of the original cartoon! :)

ps: April will be posted later, couldn't post her in time for the contest, now i gotta wait for it to be over so i don't blow my secret identity XD

When I bought the Classic Collection turtles I wanted a Shredder to go with them. AND THIS IS IT! I want it, I want it, I want it and the April. If you decide to sell let me know ASAP.

Sometimes I think some of us should just pull are resources together and make a toy company. I know it's unrealistic, but that would be awesome. You guys are all talented.

Congrats on getting the silver. This custom looks like it just jumped out of the old cartoons. It really exemplifies that nostalgia feeling.

I think the best way of complimenting this custom is pointing out how "non custom" it looks. When I see it I think "wow I gotta get to TRU and buy this thing"! It's perfect man.

Well... sort of. I couldn't see anybody's username, of course, but I was curious to see what people were saying. I found out that if you click on "Reply" then the comment comes up just not the username.

That's awesome. I love the style you made this in. All the sculpt is really good and just cause it's simplified don't make it easy. All the details are crisp and presice, and the paints are smooth and pro. the overall look is so spot on and it's just really spectacular work.

villains with blades on their shoulders probably shouldn't throw hostages over said shoulder if they want to keep said hostage, silly Shredder didn't think that one through did he?

But for real, this is beautiful!

Never really thought about that before until you mentioned it! I think Shredder only did that to April one or two times in the old cartoon. Usually he designated Rocksteady or Bebop to haul her around.

all the armors parts are removable
but that would make an awesome comic strip XD

Also... totally can't wait to see that custom April too. Even from that angle, she looks spot-on toon accurate and absolutely convincing as a real toy.

oldmanwinters -
Monday, December 24, 2012
Well, maybe so.

And I especially appreciate the fact that you included her belt purse/recorder case. Not really sure what that thing is, but it's a cool detail.
