I had a complaint from a buyer that the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle model pack was not original ninja turtle artwork. Although my eBay ad lists all my items as “Reproductions,” I didn’t make that clear in my listings here. For those who were expecting original art, forget about it. If originals even exist any more (and aside from maybe some animators’ collections, they don’t), they’d be worth $100s if not $1000s. What makes these so rare is that no one else has them. So if you are a TMNT fan (and who isn’t?), these are great items from an unforgettable show.
Saw a 6 foot tall GUY dressed as Princess Leia; 8 Ghostbusters; a 5 foot tall Wookie; a dozen or so serious people with signs like “REPENT!” “HUMBLE YOURSELF BEFORE THE LORD” and Bible verses. Only one had a megaphone. Will get some photos up.
Been handing out postcards about this website. The best location is around the Nickelodeon booth where’s a big promotion about the new TMNT show airing this fall.
I’ll be in San Diego for the annual Comic-Con geekfest this week. I’m promoting this new site and my one year old site Cartoon Scripts. Maybe I’ll see you there. I’m wearing my official cartoon writer costume of baseball cap, Hawaiian shirt and shorts. That should narrow it down to about 40,000 people. Also will be at Saturday morning’s Animation Writers Caucus panel, and the AWC reception Saturday night.
I’m Francis Moss. I wrote & story-edited the first version of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cartoon show in the 80s and early 90s. I’ve gathered up a bunch of stuff from the show.There are scripts I wrote (which I’ve signed), background art, model packs & partial storyboards. I hope you’ll find something you like.
