Created by the Ramirez Studios team — Joe Allard, Irene Matar, Mike Najera, and Michael Norman — for Mondo's new toy & collectibles line, this 1/6th scale rendition of Raphael really brings the hothead member of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles team to life. Based on the original Eastman and Laird comic book, this 11-inch tall figure features more than 25 points of articulation, two interchangeable heads (classic comic red mask head and unmasked head), his trademark dual sai, several interchangeable hand sets (c-grip hands for holding accessories, climbing claw hands, and a unique "Clenched Fist of Untamed Aggression" fist), two four-point shuriken, two eight-point shuriken, a grappling hook with cord, the Triceraton Blaster, and a belt to put everything on! Impressed? Well, it the Raphael figure also includes several pieces to otherwise enhance playability and display options, like an alien Utrom Lieutenant, a TCRI canister of mutigen, and a pre-mutation "baby" Raphael turtle! Seriously, all this for only $149.99 is a steal. Available now from Mondo's web shop, this pre-order piece will ship before the end of the year.
