Last July at San Diego Comic Con 2014 Mondo gave the world its first look Mike Mitchell’s “Lil Mikey” Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles vinyl figure. Fans worldwide have been talking about this officially licensed designer art toy ever since, and just yesterday it went up for pre-sale at the Mondo online store! Based on Mitchell’s Michaelangelo TMNT print from his popular “Like Us” series, this 9” premium collectible vinyl figure looks spot on to Mike’s original illustration. And yes, before you even ask, The Blot will totally be buying one of these! It helps that Mikey has always been my favorite Ninja Turtle.
Mike Mitchell, explaining the significance of this release, stated “If I had $5 when I was a kid, it was going to be spent on a ninja turtle figure. So much of my childhood was defined by TMNT, I watched every episode, I had the toys, the shirts, the games, the comics. I wish I could say "Lil Mikey" was a dream come true, but I never could have fathomed this happening.” The Lil Mikey vinyl figure is now available for pre-order at the Mondo online store for $105 (which includes free worldwide shipping). The figure is scheduled to ship in Q1 2015.
