NECA Debuts 1/4 Scale 1990 Movie Donatello Action Figure at Toy Fair



If the recently revealed statues from Prime 1 Studios don't fit your budget (or your display space), it seems like NECA has a "compromise" to offer you. Depending on your collecting habits, it might not even be much of a compromise.



The first of a planned series of four, NECA's 1990 movie-style Donatello stands approximately 16.5" and features 30 points of articulation, including double knee joints. With an incredibly detailed sculpt, he comes with bo staff accessory and interchangeable hands.


Watch for Donatello to hit specialty toy retailers around June for about $100. The remaining Turtles should then be released one a quarter.

Prime 1 Studio Debuts 1990 TMNT Movie Statues at Tokyo Wonder Festival




Hey, everyone! Forgive me for a bunch of delayed reporting that is going to be coming your way in upcoming days. I took a little vacation and am now just getting back into the swing of things. And with Toy Fair happening in New York, plus other events, there's quite a bit of news to share!

Let's start with these pretty impressive 1/4 scale statues from Prime 1 Studio, which were on display recently in Tokyo at Wonder Festival. Of course, the really exciting thing about these is that they're based on the 1990 movie costumes by Jim Henson.



Prime 1 Studio has previously offered 1/4 scale statues of the 2014 movie Turtles, at a MSRP of $699-$749. These new statues will most likely be similarly priced, so they are definitely an investment. But if you are looking to add these to your collection, watch for them later this year from retailers such as Sideshow Collectibles.
