ThreeZero is collaborating with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles creator Kevin Eastman. He is redesigning his classic comic style TMNT characters for ThreeZero, who will be producing new fully articulated 1/6 Scale TMNT Figures based on those designs. We got our first glimpse of the initial clay sculpt prototypes at San Diego Comic-Con 2015.
ThreeZero posted up an Interview with Kevin Eastman, where he talks about his inspirations for these new designs, the direction he hopes to go and what characters he’s like to see ThreeZero develop. Here’s a snippet:
ThreeZero: Can you share with our readers a few other characters you would like to develop with Threezero after the first four Turtles are available?
Kevin Eastman: Man, that’s a long list – just thinking about TMNT universe characters alone! Shredder is always a great option of course, and I always wanted to see a really well done April O’Neal. Elite Foot soldiers and the re-designed Slash from the IDW series would be exceptionally cool. Guess it would be awesome to hear which ones the fans would like to see once these come out, and maybe I could work on the designs for those next! Woo!Woo!
Along with the interview, there are a few new photos of the designs. You can see them after the jump.
