Raphael (Cartoon Version) Custom Action Figure

Custom #:40231  
Name:Raphael (Cartoon Version)
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
Date Added:June 25, 2012
Base Figure:Raphael 1988 Playmates
Height:5.00 inches
Used original 1988 Raphael 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 Sais.

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.

I'm glad you like them! Raphael's eyes were the most difficult to paint because they go in so deep compared to the other turtles eyes, it was hard to paint the pupils

Turtle power, brother! I'm loving these turtles!
