Blast from the Past #184: Lawson/Eastman "Samurai Turtle"

Here's another slightly unusual piece from 1987 -- a Jim Lawson pinup of a samurai TMNT which was inked by Kevin Eastman. -- PL


  1. Leo would have made a great Samurai.

    Are both of the Lawson pictures precursors to the 92 portfolio, where Dooney does Leo as a samurai with Renet flung over his shoulder? Did Dooney get the idea from Lawson I guess is what I'm asking.

  2. Wow, cool piece.

    Wish Jim wasn't so put out by his old work; I think it's great.

  3. I like his past work allot also.
    This reminds me a bit of the old Sewer Samurai Leo figure.

  4. -->> Same thing in my mind , Vaughn.

    Looks like old toy !! Instantly thought.

  5. @PL...

    Any pics of the turtles in ninja (shinobi shōzoku) garb?
