First of all, a 2005 TMNT Quarry figure, mint on card is next to impossible to find. They only released estimated 1000 figures and half of those were ordered from stores and half of those half were opened and played with or whatever… Quarry is considered one of the rearest figures in existence for TMNT collectors.
here we go…
This is very special to me and I wanted to share with my fellow shellheads: I proudly present to you: The Unpainted Unproduced Test Shot of WATER SPITTING QUARRY with push button action!
In 2004 playmates planned to make three monsters with action features: Razor Fist with pop up spikes, Stone Biter with biting jaws, and Quarry with Acid Spitting Action. Two of those figures were released on their 2004 cards with their actions. Quarry was not released until late 2005 in very very small numbers and the push button water spitting feature had been removed from the design. Playmates Toys was having QC checks failing and could not deliver a working production model in time so the figure was never released. This figure came from the original Japanese toy factory (most likely an employee) and was sold in 2008 to a buyer in the United States.

2016 IDW TMNT UNIVERSE #1 Full Page Color Sketch Cover Variant of KRANG by Michael Frederik Sorensen. Done with black sharpie and oil pastel crayons. Sprayed with Clear Seal.
Today in the mail I received my blank sketch cover of 2016 IDW TMNT Universe #1. I was inspired and decided to sketch a close up of Krang’s face. One thing led to another and here you go. I used a black sharpie and some oil pastel crayons. I then sprayed it with a clear sealant. What do you think? I might sell it on ebay if anybody is interested.
Before submitting the final cover art to CBCS for grading and encapsulation, I went back over it with more inking and sharpie. I then added a tone of green and purple light sources from both sides of Krang’s face. The comic book was submitted for a yellow label graded book at CBCS in Clearwater, FL in late September. I should get the book back by early January 2017. Which do you like more? Here is the final submitted book:
