At the Winter Wonder Festival 2016 in Japan last week Prime 1 Studio unveiled these amazing statues of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles based on their appearance in the 1990 movie.
My only gripe is about Raphael's teeth which could use little tweaking. Also all four turtles could have more facial skin details added through the paint job. But even without any changes, these statues look great and are most desirable for fans who grew on these movies in the 90s.
The characters in this statue line include:
These are 1:4 scale statues. So they will be measuring around 20" and above including base. No details on the price yet, but Prime 1 Studio's 1:4 scale statues for the 2014 TMNT movie were priced at about $700 each. I probably need to look into pre-ordering these through a payment plan if I ever want to add all of them in my collection.
After looking at the following close up photos, Raphael's teeth doesn't seem that bad due to the different angle and lighting.
