Michaelangelo (Cartoon Version) Custom Action Figure

 
 
Custom #:40229  
Name:Michaelangelo (Cartoon Version)
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
Creator:TurtlesinTime  
Date Added:June 25, 2012
Base Figure:Michaelangelo 1988 Playmates
Height:5.00 inches
Used original 1988 Michaelangelo 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. Also added the missing teeth on the empty side of his mouth. Made Nunchucks look more wooden. Then completely repainted the figure and Nunchucks.

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. Also made new nunchakus for Michaelangelo, made out of Donetallo Bo Staff pieces, chain, screw eyes, Aves apoxie sculpt, and paint. I made 2 of them but only one is shown in the pics since he's holding it with both hands, looks better for posing. Added new pics for the update.

thank you all for the compliments! I'm glad you like how these turned out, I guess the next step would be sculpting all new heads that look more like the cartoon, but I like the retro tmnt figures heads they bring back so much memories, it was fun for me to repaint them to all have the same shade of green skin tone like in the cartoon

All of these look great! It really shows that you put a lot of care into these with the super smooth paint apps and the fact that you took the time to sculpt the details in the shells and paint the weapons as well. Great Figures
