In honor of the new TMNT figures that will be showed off this weekend at Toy Fair NY, I'm posting about Bebop. This mutant warthog was the first villain I ever had in my TMNT collection. He was eventually sold off when I parted with my Turtles collection. The photographed figure below was picked up later on at a yard sale. He originally came with a gray trash can lid shield and a gray drill gun.
The figure has lot of fine details sculpted in. I always wondered if the face on the back of his vest was supposed to be a Foot Soldier or some sort of weird skull. The turtle shell shoulder pads are one of my favorite details. I hope the new classics version is fairly cartoon accurate. The vintage figure was always a good one, but I like the toon appearance as well.
