Hake’s always has some interesting items up for bid. Of note this week is this very cool TMNT Claymation Figure from Will Vinton Studios. With an estimated value of $1K it would make a great addition to any collectors home. According to Hake’s:

6.5″ tall figure created by The Will Vinton Studio for an unspecified TV commerical. Shown here is Raphael, one of the 1980s comic book and cartoon sensations, The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Made from colorful clay w/wire frames w/soft vinyl and plastic belt complete w/Raphael’s “R” initial. Belt is secured via staple on back of shell. Figure stands on 3.25×4.25x.75″ tall wooden base. Figure shows some wear as was designed to be moved/molded frequently to achieve the appearance of movement/transformation. 1/8x.25″ piece of his red face mask is missing over his right eye. VF appearance. Great likeness.

So if you want to do your own stop motion movies or are just a fan, why not give it a look.

  1. This has to be from the Crunchabungas commercial! I’ve never seen it, but at least now I can say I’ve seen one of the models from it!
