Ditto on him being my

Ditto on him being my favorite because he was the brainy member of the team. Heh.

In fact, I still have my original release Donatello action figure. And when I went to college in '88, he was one of the few personal items I kept on my dorm room desk to show visitors what I was into (he was joined by a wind-up Lost in Space Robot and Robby the Robot). It goes without saying that I was tickled to meet Barry Gordon (voice from the 80's cartoon) last year and hang out with him for a bit. He was super nice and friendly. And just last week, I got to likewise chat several times with Ernie Reyes, Jr. who played Donnie in the first live-action film (as his stuntman). Got a pic of him holding my much-loved action figure, too.

I'll never ditch my original, but these SHFs do look like they stepped right off the screen. It's remarkable how far action figures have come!

Excellent photography, really

Excellent photography, really did the figure justice. Having zero interest in anything post the original cartoon myself, I'm finally intrigued by a modern representation of the classic design. With NECA's latest limited TMNT releases being virtually impossible to purchase (especially for non US residents), I gotta say these Bandai figs have definitely eased the frustration. I just hope that Bandai builds on the line...
