The film was shot over the summer/early Fall of 1990 & was released on March 22, 1991. This piece of green foam latex came off of a screen used Ninja Turtle costume (right arm - near the elbow pad). You can see a'missing chunk'.... It may not be as cool as owning a complete ARM, LEG, SHELL or HEAD....
Actual piece of a screen used original JIM HENSON' Ninja Turtle' costume. The item for sale in this listing is the small piece of green foam latex in the 2nd, 3rd & 4th photos of the listing.This would be like owning an actual piece of. This piece of'Ninja Turtle' costume would look great on display in a small shadow box. The first 8 photos in my listing are pics I took in. Were taken by the person that now has my stolen. I obtained this actual right'arm' of a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle costume , from the 1991 sequel, TMNT 2: Secret of the Ooze. I got the'costume arm' & screen used'ooze cannister' directly from a female costume dresser that worked on the set. I got these items in 2004 and even filmed an'unboxing' video before it was cool to do so. I displayed the arm & ooze cannister in a glass case in my home through November 2009. The'turtle arm' was actually in pretty decent condition when I received it. The costume dresser I got it from did not know which Turtle the arm belonged to. I believe it was either Michelangelo or Donatello , & here's why...
Just inside the arm'hole' was written'HO' with a black sharpie. The martial artist who was the fight double for Donatello in Secret of the Ooze was Steven Ho. I always felt like the arm came from a'stunt' Turtle suit because it was very light - weight &'spongy'.But I'm not an expert. It may have been a Michelangelo arm because it appeared to have the name'Sisti' written in black sharpie on the edge of the'hole - opening' where the elbow pad attached? If that's the case, then this arm was on one of the HERO/actor costumes, as Michelan Sisti was the actor, not the fighter in the turtle suit. I received the ARM with no wrist or elbow pads. The ooze cannister was obtained from the same female costume dresser that worked on set. She told me it was one of the cannisters in the TGRI lab scenes. There was NO ooze in it when I got it, so I curved a piece of bright green poster paper & put it inside for display purposes. What happened to my'Ninja Turtle' screen used costume arm.... Screen used'stunt' turtle head. It was in great shape & definitely built by Henson's Creature Shop. I packaged up the'Ninja Turtle' costume arm, the ooze cannister & a magazine issue of Inside Karate, that featured Steven Ho. I sent them tons of e-mails & eventually filed a police report to the Fort Worth Police dept. So last year I was searching the internet and found my screen used original TMNT 2 costume arm & ooze cannister! Somebody has it in a nice display case, but I recognize both items as the ones that were stolen from me in 2009.
Let me be clear, I realize that the person who now has my'turtle arm' &'cannister' may have bought it from the person that stole it from me... OR it could be the same person that stole the items from me. I e-mailed that person and they NEVER responded. I'm going to post a photo of the display case that features my STOLEN 2 movie props. It will be the LAST PHOTO in my pic list.The LAST 2 photos in my listing are the pics I found on the internet last year, on' THE TECHNODROME FORUMS' site, of MY STOLEN Ninja Turtle arm & ooze cannister. Notice the'chunk' that is missing at the edge. The guy with my props goes by the name'SLUGGER' on that movie prop forum.
He also has a Raphael head. The arm & ooze cannister he has on display were the ones stolen from me in 2009. I know these 2 items were the ones stolen from me and I can prove it.There is a'chunk' or'piece' of green foam latex MISSING from the arm, where the elbow pad snaps on. I STILL HAVE THAT MISSING PIECE of the costume. Also - you can't see it in the last photo, but I met Peter Laird in 2008 and he autographed the'ninja turtle arm' with a silver sharpie. Peter Laird also autographed the ooze cannister. I have pics of Peter Laird standing next to me, holding the ninja turtle arm & cannister that he signed!
If you recognize the display case in my LAST PHOTO & you know who this guy is.... Help me get my 2 stolen props back! The item "Ninja Turtles 1990 movie prop screen used original costume arm Jim Henson" is in sale since Saturday, February 27, 2021.
