With rage on his countenance, the moody chelonian hero walks over a rusty pipe network that leaks a green and viscous liquid similar to the chemical substance that transformed him and his brothers, with the robotic remains of one of his enemy’s agents fallen under his feet. Wielding a pair of Sai Daggers, Iron Studios present the statue “Raphael BDS Comics Exclusive Version - TMNT - Art Scale 1/10”, with the group’s sarcastic and cranky anti-hero, nicknamed Raph by his brothers and friends, often grumpy, he rarely holds back his most extreme emotions. The second eldest among his brothers, his name is inspired by the Italian painter from the XVI century Raffaello Sanzio da Urbino.
Hidden from society, jumping from the skyscraper’s roofs, or sneaking in New York’s sewer galleries, four young brothers wage a tireless fight against evil in all of its forms, defending the city from the threat of small criminals, facing an ancestral ninja clan corrupted by crime, and even stopping alien invasions, always concealed from the public knowledge. Created in the comics by Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (TMNT), became a huge success in the 1980s, expanding into a multimedia franchise, conquering a legion of fans in the entire world. Formed by four young mutant turtles with human-like features, genetically altered by a viscous substance called Mutagen or Ooze, the brothers, members of the group, got their father figure and Sensei master in the shape of an anthropomorphic rat named Splinter, that baptized them with the name of Italian Renaissance artists. Acting in New York City, their home and base of operations is on the network of sewers where they remain hidden during the day, and only get out for their missions at night. Their greatest arch-enemy is Shredder, the leader of the criminal ninja group known as Foot Clan.
In a limited edition of 100 statues for the entire world, exclusive to the Iron Studios’ stores, the Comics Exclusive Version line presents the four heroes in their original version from the comics, where they all use red masks and are identified by their characteristic weapons. Forming a diorama set of the group in combat in the sewers of New York, their most common territory, the first line of TMNT Art Scale 1/10 statues by Iron Studios is already available for Pre-Order, revealed first on the show Inside Iron Studios Day on YouTube, where fans and collectors certainly cheered for this release by screaming “Cowabunga!”.
