First things first… if you haven’t seen this video yet… you should.
I promise it’s relevant.
SO. This set was that belated birthday present I was talking about. The birthday gentleman beat me to the punch posting them, and my reaction was pretty much “I’m going to lie here on the ground and die an honorable fangirl death because I can’t even.”
And now an artist’s commentary that I’m going to cut and paste from my post about it on FB…
The hardest part was figuring out which turtle to assign which character. In the end, I used the lyrics of the 90’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle theme song as a sort of reference point.
Leonardo/T-Bone of 5 and Dime: “Leonardo leads”/”And on guitar, he’s the leader of our club… Let’s hear it for T-Bone!”
Donatello/Q*Bert of the 80z All-Stars: “Donatello does machines”/Q*Bert is named after the 80’s video/arcade game…
Raphael/Sockhead Syd of the Bootstrappers: “Raphael is cool but rude”/Syd is… both those things.
Michaelangelo/Dormouse of Mad T Party: “Michaelangelo is a party dude”/Yes… I wanted to include all the TMNT’s weapons, but couldn’t think of a way to incorporate Mikey’s nunchucks, so I decided to use the next best thing… ‘cause mop/Mikey = OTP. Lol.
