Hope everyone at the SDCC has a great time! Grab those Neca TMNT exclusives! For those of you unable to attend, enjoy this great group shot by Kevin.

Hmmm, awesome picture but......

Why does Don have swords?
Why does Raph have a sword?

When did this pic come out? Was this an early design concept or something?

Cool looking pic though!

Any plans to recreate this pic in your style? I think that would be awesome to see your take on it!

This piece is from 1983 and I've always liked it because of the extra weapons the turtles are carrying.
Makes it a unique piece.

Funny, I was thinking the same thing. I would love to ink a copy of this when time permits.
My favorite turtles are the first turtles and I like when Pete and Kevin work together.

I don't think I've ever seen this image before. Very cool. I love seeing early renditions of the turtles. It really shows how much they've evolved over the past 25 years.

Extra weapons is an interesting idea. I know the TMNT normally carry shuriken with them, but a few swords would help in case their primary weapons break. Don's bo has broken on several occasions in the OT ("that was my favorite bo!") but I don't recall that happening in the other turtleverses. Still, it'd be helpful.
