Original release 1988 Wave 1 Leonardo Fan Club Offer but no Fan Club Form inside! Pointed Stars MINT ON CARD MOC Unpunched Pristine Condition MADE IN MACAO
Over the past few weeks, a new very large Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle TMNT Action Figure Collection consisting of over 130 figures was acquired by myself. I purchased the collection in order to grab a bunch of missing figures for my own treasured private personal collection of ninja turtle action figures. What this means to you, the visitor, is that I will be unleashing PRISTINE AFA Quality action figures MINT ON CARD on the website for sale in the following weeks. I have started at Wave 1 from 1988 original lineup and I am slowly adding each one, one by one, by series, and by wave each day on my site here at www.kaptainmyke.com. Many of these toys you just don’t see go for sale on public market in this condition. All of these figures are over 25 years old and look as if they just rolled off the assembly plant at Playmates Toys! I will be including free shipping, insurance, and free hard plastic ZoloWorld clam shell cases as part of the deal. Because I am doing this by myself, one at a time, if you have a request or are looking for any particular ninja turtle action figures shoot me an email at email@example.com!
TMNT #1 Second Printing. Peter Laird’s personal copy from the Mirage Studios Archives. Mirage Studios, 1984. Signed and Sketched by both creators, Peter Laird and Kevin Eastman.
I’ve been collecting for many years. My comic collection is somewhat a scattered one of various titles and publishers. My most complete collections are Amazing Spider-man, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Superman, and Walking Dead. All others can be considered hobby reading or investment collecting. In the past 10 years however, the turtles collection has gotten serious. With that said, it’s become my primary focus of collecting in the past 2-3 years. You can burn all my other stuff, but Turtles and Spider-man would have to be buried with me, or sold for a fortune to benefit my wife and only son.
The Turtles collection has gotten much more valuable with the recent additions from Mirage Studios’ eBay account, and Kevin Eastman Studios Fan Club. Because of these 2 operating headquarters, I’ve been able to snag super rare gems, signed by the co-creators of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Peter Laird and Kevin Eastman. Mirage Studios is closing their doors and winding down operations in the past 5 years as everything was placed under acquisition from Nickelodeon and Kevin Eastman/IDW.
With the rapidly growing wave of popularity sweeping through the current IDW comics and the new hit cartoon on Nickelodeon, vintage 1984 Mirage Studios B&W turtles comics and 1988 Playmates action figures are rising FAST. Toy auction prices in 2010 are now DOUBLE in 2016. TMNT Scratch action figure from 1993 would sell for $200 loose and $600 carded in 2010. Now, on ebay as you read this, an ungraded carded Scratch goes for astronomical prices in the $1100-$1400 range now. He’s not even that rare! The real rare toys are the Shogun Triceraton, Undercover Leo with cloth trench coat and gold coin, or the original soft head 1988 turtles with the fan club inserts.
