Mondo seems to have a bit of a soft spot for everything Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Related, as evidenced by their Lil’Mickey Vinyl Figure and their newest addition, The First Turtle Figure. What began in 1983 as a doodle on a napkin by creators Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird, the TMNT franchise has come a long way to what it is today, ranging from the beloved cartoon series during the late 80’s and early 90’s to the Michael Bay produced steroid-pumping Turtles from 2014. To commemorate that first moment in Turtles history, Mondo created a figure in the likeness of the first illustration by Kevin Eastman.
The figure will come in three different versions, most notably the black and white scheme that imitates the original pen and napkin illustration. There will be two more versions in color, one wearing orange and the other wearing red.
The figures are set to ship in the fourth quarter of 2015 so you will have some time until you can get your pizza grease laden turtle hands on one of these, but it will be worth the wait.
