The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles have dressed up for Halloween, thanks to Dan Polydoris aka the Chicago Toy Collector. Dan’s Sewer Slashin’ Turtles kitbash sees Splinter’s pupils dressed up as popular bad guys in slasher flicks. Donatello is Freddy Krueger, Michelangelo is Michael Myers, Raphael is Jason Voorhees and Leonardo is Leatherface.
Dan says he was inspired by toy maker Playmates’ barrage of costumed TMNT action figures in the 90s. Hence Dan’s cheesy poster of his action figures. If you’re not familiar with kitbashing, it’s the practice of making a new action figure using parts from other commercially available toys. In this case, most of the parts that Dan used came from various TMNT action figures as well. For example, Donny Krueger’s huge hand is from a robot Bebop action figure. Guess where Raph Voorhees’ mask is from.
Ride the Shellraiser to the Chicago Toy Collector to check out the parts list of these horrors in a half shell.
