Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles “Blood Brothers”
September 17, 2016

Special effects master Scotty Fields just launched an Indiegogo campaign for his independent film Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles “Blood Brothers”.

Scotty is knee deep in what he refers to as his passion project – a “Ninja Turtles” movie using practical FX, very much like the original that came out some 26 years ago.


Scotty promises to give Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles fans all of their favorite characters, not just 2 or 3. Expect to see this film to have Leather Head, Krang, Triceraton, Baxter Stockman and the Mousers, the Fugitoid, Usagi Yojimbo, Casey Jones, Master Splinter, Shredder and the Foot Clan, Bebop, Rocksteady, the Rat King, April O’neil, and of course, the Turtles!

The Indiegogo campaign aims to raise $40,000 in the next 30 days. One of the things that make this campaign really awesome (apart from being a Ninja Turtles project) is that all of the masks used in the film are actually being offered as rewards to big-ticket backers. Check out some of them below.

Daniel Pickett
Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website www.ActionFigureInsider.com. Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on MSNBC.com, Time.com, The Wall Street Journal, The Saturday Evening Post, CNN.com, AssociatedPress.com Wired.com, Fark.com, Boing-Boing, Gizmodo.com, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.

    Awesome! Cant tell if this is something from my best nightmares or heart pounding dream!

    Just remember that Usagi Yojimbos name is Miyamoto Usagi. They made that mistake in the 1987 series too, a long standing comic book character with his own comic series, Miyamoto Usagi, deserves the respect of having his correct name used

    Still looks like a awesome project and I can’t wait!

    Might wanna fix those tags at the bottom there. Teenage Mutant “Nija Turltes”?

    Anyway, been following the facebook page of this project for a while, pretty curious to see what comes out of this.

    I dunno. Being a fan of the cartoon back in the day (not so much now) I was hugely disappointed with the original live action movies. The animatronics were nice I found the actual films really dull.

    Now I’m gonna get hated cos I enjoyed the recent ones a lot more. I don’t care. The 2nd one pretty much saved me on a very dark day I was having during one of the worst times of my life back in June/July.

    Anyways good luck with this movie. Practical effects and CGI effects all have their place in modern films and it’s nice to see what people can still do with either one.
