If you know myself, or my husband Jason, you know that we’re both enormous kids. We love what we love, and what we love is all things geeky, nerdy, and steeped in pop culture. One of the all-time biggest movies of our childhood was when Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles hit the big screen, so when Jason heard that NECA – amazing fabricators of beautiful collectibles/toys – were going to be giving their 1/4-scale figure treatment to the movie versions of the Ninja Turtles, he absolutely lost it. He knew that, if nothing else, he was going to have to get the Raphael – his favorite turtle.
Well, it took a while since pre-orders sold out really fast and no stores within driving distance of us actually got any, but eventually we were able to order one from Big Bad Toy Store, and yesterday we finally opened it up. Let me tell you, Jason was like a kid at Christmas, and I don’t blame him one bit. That figure is SWEET! Check out the video below for lots of childlike joy! 😀
