Kevin Eastman Studios Announces Details For Exclusive ThreeZero TMNT Figures
In a surprise announcement, ThreeZero and Kevin Eastman have revealed some important details about their planned exclusive TMNT figures. Unfortunately, I doubt this is the kind of news that most fans were hoping to hear. If you’ve been looking forward to picking up these awesome Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles collectibles, it might be time to take out a second mortgage on the house. Unlike other TMNT merchandise, it would appear that these exclusive Ninja Turtles figures will be limited to an extremely low print run with a very high price tag.
Sold directly through Kevin Eastman Studios, these ThreeZero TMNT figures will be limited to only 25 sets of all four turtles. As if that weren’t bad enough, this exclusive set will cost you a total of $2,000 to obtain. To be fair, the KBE Studios Edition set will also include a certificate of authenticity and a tiny pizza box hand-drawn and signed by none other than Eastman himself. This is definitely a very nice collector’s item, but it’s also going to be far too costly for most fans of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
Although this KBE Studios Edition set is extremely limited, we have yet to determine whether or not we will see ThreeZero produce these particular models for a larger audience. It is still entirely possible that they could release a more massive print run of these TMNT figures at some point in the near future, and those collectibles would probably be a lot more affordable. That being said, I wouldn’t be surprised if they decided to keep this exclusive set limited in order to retain its value.
They have previously produced a similar collection of TMNT figures with the colored masks, but this particular set features all four turtles with red masks and exclusive content that you won’t find everywhere else. These figures are clearly based on the original comic book, and the fact that they were designed by Eastman makes them a lot more desirable. All we can say is that you’d better be quick if you want to get this limited edition set of Ninja Turtles memorabilia. After all, there are only 25 sets being made and they are already available for pre-order.
