Is there any way to identify the original soft-head turtles from the later moldings based on packaging?

Yes if you see a seam going down the middle of their heads they are not original soft heads

The money is in soft heads, and pop up display versions with the yellow star sticker on bubble

People also look to collect the "beaded nunchuk" versions of the 1988 Mikeys but I personally do not care or desire such figures I feel its hype over early editions of the accessories. Some accessories on tmnt figs can fetch huge dollars like Genghis Frog with the bagged grenades can fetch $2k or more

I have a check list on my website regarding the highest desired figures via price guide and most valuable tmnt figs

I had the entire set as a kid; got a huge Christmas present box w/ every TMNT figure, vehicle, playset, a couple jars of “ooze”. None of the packaging survived first contact with a four or five year old, though I did & do take extremely good care of my toys.

Mom ended up donating them to University of Chicago Children’s Hospital to lighten the load before we moved cross-country. I wonder if they still have them...

Similar story to mine. Who knows which resale or thrift shop my mom donated my old toys

@kaptainmyke

Anything to these? Sealed/unopened. They are the 1998 version.

They go for $100-$150 each, new in box, sealed. They are quite rare as opposed to the original 1993 release with yellow starburst on front of box art.

Good find! I have Peter Lairds 1993 one, signed by Laird and Dan Berger from Mirage Studios

With Eastman signing it, one would think he would touch up the back and authenticate the restore - especially for all the stuff you have him commission.....hmmmm.....sounds like fandom isn't "all that" after all.....*shrugs*.....

This is not to say KE isn't a great artist, because he is, but just the way he expresses it to devout fans, well...these little things shouldn't be seen.

IMO.

Cheers....cools stuff Myke.

Those TMNT books mean more to me than all of my TMNT books because my #1-4 I've had almost all of my life. Special place in my heart, regardless.
