Playmates Catwoman April design drawing from 1990.

My title at Mirage for a while was TMNT Toy Coordinator. My job was to keep track of all the design work being done for all the Playmates toys: making sure the process flowed smoothly between Playmates and Mirage; keeping track of all the different design stages items were in; getting written final approval for play sets, action figures, roleplay items, etc. from Pete and Kev; organizing samples, test shots, prototypes and paint masters. It was fun and hectic. I'd kill to have that sort of job again now!

Thank you thank you thank you thank you!! This has made my day, I've been asking people from Mirage to post this sort of stuff for some time! And suprise suprise you come through.
Shame the toy of Catwoman April didn't look this amazing.
And I'd kill for you to have that job now to, you'd be doing a hell of allot better then what they are bringing out now, such a lack of imagination.

I agree with VM... This design sketch rocks way more than the actual toy produced. Great find! I love seeing behind the scenes stuff like this.
