NECA ish styled Foot Soldiers TMNT by plasticplayhouse NECA ish styled Foot Soldiers TMNT by plasticplayhouse
here are a couple of NECAish styled Foot Soldiers. while i really liked the prototypes NECA made, i wanted to do something different. NECA used the color schemes from the FIRST colorized trade paperback which was colored by Steve Lavigne. i found it interesting that Steve also colorized the 2009 #1 reprint, but had done very differently. for instance the Foot wore maroon and light gray uniforms in the FIRST issue, but wore dark navy/black uniforms in the 2009 issue. black i understand, maroon i get because it the clan's color, but light gray seems counter productive for a person needing to be stealthy. i decided to make them maroon similar to how Eastman painted them on the fourth reprint of #1. the fourth print was published in September 1985. the FIRST tpb was published in November 1986. since Kevin's cover was done first, it leads me to believe he intended the Foot to wear all maroon.

Actually, grey or navy would blend in better than black in most cases :)

Great figures all the same. It's really a shame the TMNT line fell through. I never even found them in stores, though I think NECA was having a lot of distribution and money issues at the time. They seem to be doing better now, but it's too late for the TMNT line, sadly.
