In the meantime we give you exclusive photos and exclusive words from the man himself!
“I’ve been obsessed with ninja turtles since I learned to read in 87. I’d borrow my dads mirage graphic novels 1-4 and go away to an amazing universe full of other loner weirdos like I already was at age 7. I would draw the shit out of them on the sides of my tests at school or on homework well into high school. I dunno, I just didn’t care and they were mad fun to doodle. I’ve never been good w pen/pencil but those mutant pizza Hoover’s made sense to me. The toys were the main focus of my collection growing up too. I was spoiled rotten by my grandma and pretty much had all the turtle releases for many many years. Being an only child that didn’t play sports in a small town made it kinda lonely, like a lot, so playing with tmnt toys really provided a great escape. I’d put on GNFR and rage like only a misfit 11yro could. Fast forward to being D$B making toys, it’s like a waking.“
“Dream to be making toys!! Then recently my wife, Hoarcee Bü, and I decided to make our own ninja turtle from scratch with an all new sculpt by her influenced by my favorite aspects of the mirage and playmates turtles I grew up on. What we came up with is hands down something that all turtle fans had been seeing in their dreams. I feel we really nailed the heart and soul of the 80s/90s 1st and 2nd wave turtles. We gave em one of each classic weapon and a dollar slice of pizza.“
