Sideshow Reveals Their New TMNT Michelangelo Statue
Back at the end of June, Sideshow revealed a new series of TMNT statues, starting with Leonardo. The statues featured a unique take on the look of the turtles (think more realistic / gritty), and now, we’re getting a look at the TMNT Michelangelo statue, the second figure in the new line. And though this version doesn’t necessarily look as free-spirited and fun as the traditional Mikey, it does look pretty awesome. The figure features Mikey crouched on a sewer pipe, holding his signature nunchaku (“A fellow chucker, eh?”). One nice detail is that the nunchaku are linked together with metal chains.
