If you were a kid once or even had a kid in the last 20-25 years you remember the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. This show in general was one of my favorite saturday morning cartoons..I loved it! Well Kyle Roberts and a bunch of other contributors decided to make a full 1:1 replica of the whole intro of the cartoon in stop motion, check out the details
With over 4,000 individual pictures, Kyle Roberts and crew wanted to recreate the nostalgic 1987 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cartoon introduction in stop motion. Artist, Nathan Poppe, created over 60 hand-drawn images to establish a bright and vibrant backdrop to complement Roberts’ use of action figures. The original TMNT theme song was covered by Oklahoma native band, The Boom Bang, in their “garage surf punk” style. Each of these pieces can stand alone by themselves, but when infused together they create a radical tribute.
Sponsored by the Toy and Action Figure Museum, curator Kevin Stark designed many of the pieces in the original 1990 TMNT toy line.
Hit the jump for the stop motion awesomeness and the behind the scenes video too! P.S did I mention the Action Figure Museum that sponsored this is actually about 30 minutes away from me as we speak! Awesome! Read more »
