1991 Giant BEBOP and Giant ROCKSTEADY are united at last

I know some of you have been following my struggles to find solid giant ninja turtles and the elusive giant bebop and giant rocksteady. I have been burned twice by ebay sellers and once locally for Rocksteady. This toy is just damn rare. Heereeee we go!

I have received the 4 Giant Turtles and both Giant Bad Boys today. I have acrylic cases being shipped for the 4 green guys so I’ll wait to post photos of those. I will post however, Giant Bebop and Giant Rocksteady, along with some other toys I got in with acrylic cases made…CGA is the same company who encapsulates toys for AFA Grading Services.

The box has typical shelf and storage wear to it for its age. Bebop has some storage/shelf wear as well but I really can’t complain at this point.

The 2016 SDCC IDW Mega Bloks #1B TMNT Time Capsule from Kevin Eastman!

I’m about to unleash something to the world FEW have seen. I am excited to share it here with you all, whom I consider colleagues of elite collectibles and highly sought after gems. Sometimes historical pieces are what get me really excited. Most Time Capsules sold at auction by Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle co-creator  Kevin Eastman go anywhere from $300-$500 tyically. This one however is for a comic book of a very very small print run for the attendees of this years 2016 San Diego Comic Con (SDCC) convention only. Without further ado, here we go…

I received my 2016 IDW Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle TMNT SDCC Mega Bloks #1B Time Capsule today via FEDEX. Let’s take a journey shall we? Here’s what a $960 sheet of paper looks like:

OKAY, so now here’s where it gets REALLLLLY interesting. I mentioned via ebay to Fiona his office assistant that I bought on presale order Heavy Metal #281 which is Kevin Eastman’s first solor cover on his own magazine. I told her I wanted a signed copy but there wasn’t one offered. She said Kevin told her to put one in the capsule via ebay messages. Well, to my astonishment, here’s what I ACTUALLY got:

I didn’t get the magazine. Instead, holy schnikes, I got a 2016 Heavy Metal #281 Color 8 1/4″ x 11 3/4″ ARTIST’S PROOF signed by KEVIN EASTMAN and his wife, COURTNEY EASTMAN! SUPER MEGA TURBO RARE! (Kevin Eastman’s first solo cover of his own magazine) Courtney is the model by which April O’ Neil was conceived and now the model on the cover of this magazine! (By the way, google her, she is extremely beautiful)

FOUND – GIANT ROCKSTEADY 13″ BAD BOYS TMNT ACTION FIGURE!

FOUND

Have you seen this toy?  I lost this toy from a seller on ebay.  I do not know if they sold it locally or from under me but I received a refund on my purchase and would gladly pay double to have it rightfully placed in my hands.  This toy is rare.  This toy is not easy to find.  This figure is darn near impossible to obtain sealed, boxed, and unopened.  If you know of the whereabouts of this action figure or wish to sell me yours, email me yesterday.    Thank you.  kaptainmyke@gmail.com
