#69: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles - Raphael

As predicted, I'm going to be picking up all four of the Ninja Turtles in the new cartoon style as well. So, here's Raphael! One thing that is definitely cooler than the classics turtles is that the cartoon turtles all get unique sculpts. Raph has a big gouge on his chest, and is noticeably taller than Mikey. His rack of spare weapons is also different. Also, he's a darker green.

It makes sense that they are different colors and sizes, as it helps to distinguish them as individuals visually aside from their bandanas and weapons. This raises a question, are the Turtles actually brothers by blood? Clearly, they were all raised together and look to Splinter as their father, but I'm not sure if it has been addressed as to whether they are all related by blood or just a random collection of four turtles. Anybody more familiar with the TMNT mythos know about this?


  1. Another great figure! I was hooked when i saw all of these so it was a must for me to have all 4.

  2. They are definitely established as blood brothers.

  3. Hi,
    I have created a action figure website and I wanted to know if you would like to do a link exchange. I place a link to your site on my site and you do the same?

    Let me know what you think.
