After picking up the new TMNT figures, I noticed they had beautiful sculpts, but hardly any paint applications. Seeing a way to fix that, I set out to give proper paint jobs to each of the four turtles in order to really bring out the great sculpt. Each turtle has been painted with 4 different shades of green on their skin, each one having the right skin tone for their character (Leonardo – True green, Donatello – Olive green, Michelangelo – Light yellow green, Raphael – Dark blue green). Washes have been applied to their shells, and their pads, straps, and belts have been painted to look like worn leather.

I’ve even repainted each of their weapons. For Michelangelo, I gave him real chains on his nunchaku and his kusarigama. I did the same thing to Donatello’s trisected bo staff. All of their weapons were painted with realistic weathering and metallic effects for the blades. I won’t understand why Playmates gave these figures such great sculpts but decided not to show them off with an equally good paint job, but they’re fully painted now and ready to take on Shredder and the Foot Clan!

great work dude !! I m in the process of repainting the classic cartoon style turtles myself the sculptys are great but sometimes the pain apps need work on these figures but I love their quality of plastic is nice and dense. I love the background too !! - hey man, what colour did you use for their shells ? I have colour blind issues sometimes so to me it look brown , but I think its more cammo green or something.

It's kind of like a greenish brown.

This is a great set of repaints! I like how the guys with a good brush skills are really showing how good the sculpt is for these figures, and yours really exemplifies this! Good stuff!

Yes, thanks for letting me use your Sewer Lair to take the pics. Great job repainting it man.

Playmates has often had that problem with sculpt versus paint apps. Seriously, look at the original Ninja Turtle action figures, the sheer amount of sculpting and detail on those figures was phenomenal, the paints...not so much...
