0

Here’s the one thing Playmates never thought up when they were making approximately 10 thousand bajillion Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles action figures from about 1988 to the present day: basing them on the original damn comics by Eastman and Laird. NECA has stepped up to the plate with figures of the four turtles in their original, stringy glory, complete with red headbands and red headbands alone.
