Predatorstuff Shows off Leonardo from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles! Painted Piece Available!

January 15th, 2010

Please Note:  This item has been sold and is no longer available.  This article is for information purposes only.

Good afternoon everyone, welcome to the official first new post of 2010!  I’ve been updating the sale thread of my ongoing collection sale, but I think it’s time to show off some new pieces, what do you think?  I have quite a number of pieces up for sale that I never got a chance to photograph or review, so I thought I would get started with one of my favorites… Leonardo from TMNT!

This is a gorgeous 1:6 scale kit that was released in 2008 by Devil’s Own Resin and was sculpted by CH Member Veritas and the kit is titled “Way of the Sword”.  It’s a heavy kit cast out of solid resin and includes a solid resin sewer grate base and real metal swords!  The gorgeous painted version seen in this review (and is available for sale) was done up by one of the greats, Mister Saul Alvarez and I was able to pick it up last year.  I am a HUGE TMNT fan, so I was completely thrilled to grab this kit.

I admit I did watch the original cartoon series on TV when I was a kid and even managed to watch 1 or 2 movies, but for me, TMNT will always be the original comic book series of Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird published back in 1984 by Mirage Studios.  In fact, I bet I still have my first editions somewhere buried in a box.  So when I saw this sculpt for the first time and saw that it was based off the comics rather than the cartoon series, I was already hooked and ready to rock.  Then I saw Saul’s build-up and I relentlessly pursued him until he finally gave it up.  I had him keep Leo’s cartoon blue rather than the comic book red to pay homage to the cartoon series I also enjoyed.

The kit itself is beautifully detailed, with a gorgeous sculpt FILLED with all kinds of textures and badass sculpting chops… I absolutely LOVE the shell and the twin scabbards.

And now for the bad news/good news scenario… as far as I know, this kit is no longer in production… it’s been sold out for ages and I haven’t heard of anyone getting a new one since last year.  In fact, we were told that Mikey was on the way next, but so far he hasn’t appeared.  BUT the good news, the piece in this review is available for sale!  This is just one f the many pieces I still have for sale in my collection divorce sale, which you can check out by clicking HERE!  I am asking $599.99 for this guy, so please contact me if you are interested!

This is a MUST-HAVE for any TMNT fan, easily the best Leo I have ever seen in any format and there is just no touching the details and paint job from Saul.  I took a few pics you can check out, click on the photo icon below to have a look and please be sure to click the comment button at the end of this article to share your thoughts!

I don’t have a video review yet, but I will work on one and post it as soon as it’s available!  Thanks and welcome to 2010!
