TMNT Treasures: Post 4 - Scratch Hard Copy

This morning's TMNT Treasure is one of my favorite pieces. This is a Hard Copy of Scratch, one of the rarer TMNT figures from the 90's. A Hard Copy is a Production Stage of creating a figure. This stage is after the wax sculpt, but before the test shots are made. Rather than being made out of the normal figure plastic, Hard Copies are made from solid resin and are held together by metal pins. I particularly like this hard copy because he is in remarkable shape for his age, and has all his accessories with him (also cast in resin). Enjoy the photos.
