“I’m Raph. If there’s a brawl, count me in. Leo loves to plan, but me? I’d rather fight first and ask questions later. If any shellbrains try to mess with me and my brothers, they won’t know what hit ’em! Oh yeah, they will… ME! You bad guys heard me! if you guys ever mess with my brothers, you’ll get it!”
Good Smile brings the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles to life and third in line is Raph as the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Raphael by James Jean Statue, which pairs perfectly with the matching Leonardo and Michelangelo statues!
The Raph statue continues the line based on acclaimed artist James Jean’s original rendition of the turtles. Raph stands on a cracked pillar, ready to strike with sharpened sai. The most violent member of the team stands approximately 10 1/2-inches tall, including his base.
The distressed paint deco highlights Jean’s design. Raph’s bright red bandana is in sharp contrast to his soft green skin. You don’t want to get on the wrong side of this turtle.
“James Jean is a good friend and one of the most talented artists that I have had the fortune to work with,” says Takanori Aki, President and CEO of Good Smile Company. “The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles art piece he created for our project is truly fantastic. Staying true to his vision, our Good Smile Company creative team worked intricate details into the collectible statues which capture the essence of his artwork and will be just as great.”
The brawling brother is currently available for pre-order with free shipping at Entertainment Earth, and is scheduled to arrive in April 2015.
