Limited Edition Raphael Statue Available From Sideshow

I’m sure a lot of fans got some pretty cool Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles statues over the holidays. After all, with their recent resurgence in popularity, we’ve been seeing a lot more collectible figures and statues from a variety of companies. Heck, we’ve featured a few examples of these works of art before, and something tells me that we’re going to feature several more in the years to come. That being said, this particular TMNT statue is sure to be an acquired taste.

Designed to look just like Raphael from the 2014 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie, this Ninja Turtles statue is perfect for any fan of the film. Intricately detailed and limited to only 1500 pieces, this is probably one of the nicest TMNT statues ever made. That being said, a lot of shellheads didn’t care for the movie produced by Platinum Dunes, so this is probably going to have a limited appeal. In addition to that, the price tag is sure to be an issue for fans, even if they are interested in the product.

At a price of $699.99, something tells me it might take a while to find the audience for this Raphael statue. To be honest, there’s nothing wrong with the price when you consider the quality of the item you are receiving. Coming in at 21.65” high, this is a pretty hefty Ninja Turtles statue that actually has a lot of fine details that are worthy of note. For instance, a closer look at the skin reveals an excellent reptilian design, and the tattered rags he uses for armor are incredibly realistic.

Let’s be fair here and say that this might even be the best that this iteration of Raph has ever looked. Even if you’re not a fan of the new movie franchise, this is definitely a special collectible for any fan of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Sideshow will be doing a Ninja Turtles statue for all four turtles, but as of right now, Raph is the only one available. If you’ve got the money to plunk down on this limited edition Raphael Statue, now is the time to make your order. If not, feel free to tell us how you really feel about this TMNT statue from Sideshow and Prime 1 Studio in the comments below!

My name is Justin Wren and I love to write about the TMNT! I've been a big Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles fan since the late 80's. Back then, I would watch the original animated series and play with the Playmates toys all the time. I have been following the boys ever since I was a kid, and I'm very happy to see them back in the limelight after all these years. Needless to say, I'm proud to be a member of the team on this awesome TMNT Fan Site!
