Threezero’s Kevin Eastman Designed TMNT Sixth Scale Figures on Display at SDCC and HopCon
This month, Threezero and Kevin Eastman will debut four unique clay sculpts for their upcoming 1/6th scale Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles figures in a new collaborative collectible figure series. Never before seen by the public, these hand-sculpted models will be revealed at Hop-Con 3.0: The w00tstout Festival on Wednesday, July 8 at Stone Brewing World Bistro & Gardens – Liberty Station. The sculpts will be on display at the adjacent San Diego Comic Art Gallery space during the event. Following the festival, the sculpts will make a weekend home Thursday, July 9-12 at the Diamond Collectibles booth (#2401) at San Diego Comic-Con International for attendees to see up close in person.
The four TMNT sixth scale figures will include the heroes in a half-shell designed by Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles co-creator Kevin Eastman specifically for this collectible figures collaboration. Leonardo, Donatello, Raphael and Michelangelo will be fully-articulated figures featuring tailored fabric clothing and the various weapons recognizable by fans as their classic accessories. The four figures will be released later this year for pre-order via Threezero and select retailers.
