Learn About the History of TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES Toys

Chris Fawcett is from the toy industry and worked as an engineer and is an avid collector of toys. He has made a book called Rad Plastic that is all about the history of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles toys.

The first printing was for 1,000 copies of the book, and now with the second print, you have the chance to own one, thanks to Kickstarter. The book looks incredible and if they reach specific stretch goals, new chapters will be added! The campaign for Rad Plastic has $22,000 out of the $30,000 goal with 20 days left.

Tracing the entire history of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles toy line from concept development in 1987 all the way to unreleased toys from 1999, Rad Plastic reveals the history of one of the most popular and iconic toy lines in history. You’ll learn about how toys are made, from napkin sketch to store shelves, and every step in between.

Packed with interesting photos of every step of the process, Rad Plastic is not only a fantastic visual resource, but also an educational guide to the toy industry in the 90s. Explore the original artwork and sculpts that spawned the toys you love. Discover alternate variants and even unreleased figures that never made it to the store shelves. Join the original creation team as they explain how the line came to be. The Ninja Turtles were RAD in comics. RAD on the TV screen. And now for the first time RAD in a 400 page hardcover tome fit for the coffee table.
