The Unpainted Unproduced Test Shot of WATER SPITTING QUARRY with push button action!

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…

2003tmntquarryspittingprototype_015This 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.
