Blast from the Past #362: Leonardo wax prototype sculpture

If memory serves, these are photos that Playmates sent to Mirage some years ago to show the progress on the sculpting of the first of the large, cold-cast collector TMNT statues. They chose Leonardo to start with, and as you might imagine, when I saw this sculpture, I was quite pleased. I don't think much, if anything, was changed for the finished product. -- PL


  1. So very cool, thanks for sharing it.

  2. Very nice, I have Leo and Mikey, I should have got Raph and Don first as they are hard to track down and very expensive.

    Peter I'd like to bring this to your attention Sideshows Shredder statue.


    Its pretty darn cool, I am going to have to get this one even tho I have skipped getting any of the Sideshow Turtle figures for financial reasons when they were relased.

  3. Such awesome statues all 4 of the TMNT and Shredder yet they are too expensive. :( One day...

    Thanks for sharing!

  4. Hi Peter,
    I just wanted to say thank you for sharing all of your work on here.
    Your art had a massively positive effect on my life and I learned a
    lot from spending hours drawing your characters.
