PORTRAIT OF DONATELLO
The Turtles' Creative Genius
Weapons: Bo (Staff), Turtle Fist Daggers, Ninja Stars, Kama
Birthplace: Joe's Pet Place, Slowklahoma
Height: 4' on two legs
Weight: 145 lbs.
Shell: Hard as tank armor
Donatello is the best idea Turtle you'll ever find. He's the brains of the group and the designer of the Turtle vehicles. Rather than use his bo or brawn, Donatello would prefer inventing some device or clever apparatus to foil the foe. Still, Don's one powerful reptile with his staff, which enables him to parry, vault and crush! Even Don gets "Turtle-sized" pleasure in stomping the Foot.
After a tough battle, Don relaxes by watching programs on his own invention - turtlevision.
PORTRAIT OF LEONARDO
The Battle Commander for the Turtles
Weapons: Katana Blades, Turtle Fist Daggers, Ninja Stars, Kama
Birthplace: McMahon's Pet Emporium, Chesabeake Bay
Height: 5' 1" on two legs
Weight: 155 lbs.
Shell: Bullet proof and shock resistant
Like his Florentine namesake, Leonardo is the perfect Turtle. In the lidless eyes of his allies, he is known as the unofficial commander of the Turtles and Splinter's star pupil.
Because of his keen eyesight and sensitive hearing, Leonardo is extremely well-balanced, which makes him more skillful when wielding his ever flashing katana blades. No matter how dangerous the situation, Leo doesn't mind sticking his neck out. His primary objective in life: cut Shredder down to size!
PORTRAIT OF MICHAELANGELO
The Wild & Crazy Turtle
Weapons: Nunchukus, Turtle Fist Daggers, Ninja Stars, Kama
Birthplace: Woodys Pet Shop, Pennshellvania
Weight: 150 lbs.
Age: 15 1/2 (people) years
Shell: Hard and polished to a waxy finish
Michaelangelo is a party reptile. Even though the sinister Shredder may be slicing his way through the manhole cover, Mike stays cool... cool because he's the master of the whirling nunchukus. It takes eight pounds of pressure per square inch to break bone. The nunchukus generate ninety!
In the midst of the most perilous battles, Mike can be seen swinging his deadly nunchukus in one hand while dangling a wedge of pizza in the other. Mike dreams to someday use Shredder's cutting armor to grate cheese on his pepperoni and ice cream pizza.
PORTRAIT OF RAPHAEL
The Witty Voice of the Turtles
Weapons: Sai, Turtle Fist Daggers, Ninja Stars, Kama
Birthplace: Shelly's Pet City, New Hampshell
Height: 5' 1"
Weight: 147 lbs. with shell
Age: 15 (people) years
Shell: Hard as old chewing gum
Raphael is the wittiest Turtle you're likely to stumble over. If things aren't going his way, his tongue snaps out sarcastic jokes dipped in poison. Even though he's referred to as the snapping ninja, the Turtles know he means well.
Raph's clever skill with the deadly sai allows him to strike at a distance and really keep the Foot in stitches. His way with a manhole cover has made him famous in sewers everywhere. Raph uses the 100 pound discs to flatten the Foot and to shield off Anti-Turtle blasts.
PORTRAIT OF SPLINTER
The Good Guy Leader
Weapons: Ninja Bow, Sword Cane, Ninja Stars
Birthplace: Osaka, Japan
Weight: 125 lbs.
Previous Forms: Hamato Yoshi, homo sapien/sewer rat
Splinter, the rat mutation of ninja master, Hamato Yoshi, is the Turtles' "shidoshi" (teacher of the warrior ways of enlightenment). As a man - and still as a sewer rat - Splinter has a special fondness for the arts, especially martial arts. He also digs the underground, since his rat-like abilities make him quite a burrower.
This mystical rat uses his cunning as well as his bow and sword cane to thwart the evil Foot Clan. Splinter trained the Turtles to fight for truth, justice and an equal portion of food.
PORTRAIT OF APRIL O'NEIL
TV News Reporter & Turtles' #1 Fan
Accessories: Camcorder, Gun, Wireless Microphone, TMNT Portable Computer, Ninja Star
Birthplace: The Valley
Height: 5' 5"
Weight: 115 lbs.
Age: A young 25
April's a determined TV news journalist, always prepared for the late breaking news feature with her camcorder strapped 'round her arm. Her eagerness, however, gets her into trouble and makes her a big pain in the shell for the Turtles, who always end up saving the damsel in distress.
Still, April's no air head and is a valuable member of the Turtle Team. Being a pretty human has its advantages, like getting into places the Turtles can't. When the situation calls for more than a news flash, April's ready with a trusty gun, which is secretly locked in her camcorder.
PORTRAIT OF SHREDDER
The Bad Guy Leader
Weapons: Cutting Armor, Sword, Ninja Stars, Fist Daggers, Kama
Birthplace: Osaka, Japan
Weight: 200 lbs.
Shredder is the hideous, gruesome and all around bad guy leader of the Foot Clan, the organized band of evil Ninjas. This low life came to power when he betrayed his Ninja master, Hamato Yoshi (now Splinter).
Shredder wants nothing more than control of the world. And to get there, he'll stop at nothing, even if it means grating his victims like cheese with his razor-sharp armor. The obstacles in his path are none other than the Turtles, and he means to destroy them. Shredder fights a never-ending battle against the truth, justice and the American way. Basically, he's not a nice guy.
PORTRAIT OF FOOT SOLDIER
Shredder's Right Hand Mummy
Weapons: Turtle Shell Biter, Electro Shock-Mace, Turtle Carver Knife
Birthplace: Catacomb, Nebraska
Weight: 175 lbs.
Foot Soldiers are all alike: speechless, robotic minions to Shredder, the evil Foot leader. Their mummified movements, turtle shell armor (made from unfortunate relatives of the Turtles) and radioactive eyes make these skeletal scumballs truly horrible additions to the Foot clan.
Many Foot soldiers have stumbled over the Ninja-trained Turtles and many have been destroyed. Still, they are formidable foes because of their sheer numbers. Their hi-tech weapons, like the shell-biter, can crush the Turtles' protective covering and get to the real meat.
PORTRAIT OF ROCKSTEADY
Mutant G.I. Mauler and Shredder's #1 Thug
Weapons: Retro-Mutagen Gun, Manhole Cover Shield, Turtle Carver Knife
Birthplace: La Brea Tar Pits
Height: 5' 7"
Weight: 240 lbs.
Previous Forms: Military Punk/Rhinoceros
Rocksteady's tough rhino body makes him a turtle-bashing powerhouse. His lack of smarts makes him dangerous. This mutant mammal is big trouble with his Retro-Mutagen Gun: one shot can level a whole building or a shelled turtle. Off-duty, Rocksteady loves to fry up a mess of juicy turtle burgers for the whole hungry Foot Clan.
Rocksteady's fieldglasses survey the area for anything that looks like a Turtle. (He's mistakingly blasted six soccer balls). This G.I. rockhead blatantly displays his victory kills with the turtle scalps he wears around his belt.
PORTRAIT OF BEBOP
Powerhouse Punk Enforcer for the Foot Clan
Weapons: Turtle Shell Drill, Garbage Can Shield, Knife
Height: 5' 10"
Weight: 265 lbs.
Bebop is the mutant punk rock hog who could slam dance his way through any crowd. This roadhog warrior dares to shave his head in blatant opposition to the establishment and his parents. Behind his mohawk ponytail, cool shades and all-star tennis shoes lurks the heart of a pig, ready to pulverize the Turtles. Guided by the evil Shredder, Bebop is willing to roll in the mud to snort out the Turtles. His two turtle shoulder pads cover a grotesque array of safety pins, tattoos and junk food.
Always at his side, the Shell Drill serves as a constant reminder that the party's not over... until every Turtles lies on its back.
Above is the catalog picture of the original release of the Technodrome.
