Product Review – Leonardo Fathead Decal
With the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles blowing up both the big and small screens once again, their stock is higher than ever. The best way to capitalize on that popularity is to license the characters and the name, and allow companies that make exceptional products use those mutant faces to bring the turtles into the homes of millions of fans in fun and innovative ways. From dinnerware to lunch boxes to toys and clothes, the turtles have been the happy recipients of a rebirth – a Renaissance, if you will – and one of the coolest products rolled out to help support the heroes in green comes to fans courtesy of Fathead.
Known for their life-size wall decals of famous athletes and sports team logos, Fathead has made a name for itself since 2006 as a premiere decorating company, capable of transforming any space into a fan’s dream room. Offices, gyms, and bedrooms go from bland to phenomenal through the inclusion of a few well-placed decals on the walls. Since starting, Fathead has branched out to include superheroes, Disney icons, home décor, and so much more to its catalog of available products. Anyone can turn his or her personal space into a customized den in no time. So it was no surprise when they branched out further to included the Ninja Turtles to their ever-growing cavalcade.
Reaching back nearly 30 years, Fathead’s current TMNT library includes sheet decals of the classic 1987 turtles that, together, are almost seven feet wide, as well as decals from the current Nickelodeon series. Each of those individual turtles is more than a foot tall, and nearly a foot wide. Additionally, there are larger six-foot group decals, and six-foot action photos featuring all four turtles. But the decals don’t stop there, and now include the latest and greatest looks of the turtles and Shredder from the newest feature film.
While there is a decal for each of the individual turtles, the one that stands out amongst the crowd is the company’s representation of Leonardo. From the REAL.BIG Fathead line and standing six-and-a-half feet tall by nearly four feet wide, this decal portrays the turtles’ leader in his new ninja outfit while holding his signature katana in a swordsman posture that is sure to strike fear into any Foot Soldier that crosses his path.The detail in the skin, the shell, and the clothing of the image used brings Leo to life right off the wall. Even the katana looks like it might cut through the wall if it’s left unchecked. What’s more, the Leonardo decal also comes with several smaller ones that showcase the movie logo, Leo’s name, his twin katana, and some awesome images of the turtle. The entire decal set is available from Fathead for $99.99.
This Fathead is a great investment for any TMNT fan. Not only does it allow the Leonardo to come to life right on your wall, but it’s also a great decoration for any room dedicated to all things geeky. Pictures, posters, and clocks used to dominate many peoples’ walls because there were no other options available. The Fathead decals finally give not only another, but also a better option. Now decoration isn’t limited to four corners or two hands. It can be any shape or size you want, and gives you a way to express your own personal style like never before.
