Legendary comic book artist Jack Kirby gets his very own TMNT action figure from NECA

NECA has revealed a new action figure for its Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles line and is by the legendary cartoonist Jack Kirby.

As you know, Kirby is the creator and co-creator of some of Marvel’s greatest and most popular superhero characters.

So what’s the connection with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles? Well, “Kirby” appeared as an art character who interacted with Donatello in a 1986 comic.

The figure is 100% based on Kirby as the Kirby estate must approve the figure’s likeness. It’s about time Kirby had his own action figure!

In the comic, Kirby discovers a way to bring his drawings to life with a pencil powered by a magical crystal, and even manages to make his way into another dimension.

Figure includes pencil, sketchbook, various hands, a comic-style blaster weapon and a Kirby-style creature with its own weapon.
