Hi everyone,

im a huge fan of the original tmnt live action films and always wondered if anyone knows who made the sais that raph used in the films. I remember reading somewhere that a company had to make these special on account of the turtle fingers being to big to hold.

i even saw a pic of a sai in someones collection here on the rpf. but havent had much luck getting info on it. there have been pics on "yourprops" which say they got them from the same makers of the film. I just cant figure out who those makers are. cheers if anyone knows.

Very good questions.... I am going to give you a free bump here as my curiosity is aroused as well! Lord knows it wasn't those 'officially licensed' TMNT weapon replicas you can buy that come with the bandanas. Those are terrible excuses for prop replicas!

thanks for the bump, yea i have always wondered who made them and if they were custom props for the film. i'm sure they wouldn't be hard to replicate but something I've always thought about.

not sure if anyone wants to share but thought i'd post just some stuff i have from my collection. some of these were bought from a set dresser on the film and i have some gifts and jackets given to them too but will need to take pics.




this is very old and its a paint test head from film one and two. has molds of the bottom teeth and toung. I never touch it since its really dry.


this is a screen used Michaelangelo head wrap bandanda. on the other side it has green paint/glue residue


also from tmnt 2, this is donatellos end bandanna part


upper left side is a production made TGRI canister from tmnt 2. I also have the replica made here by an rpf member.

feel free to share you own pieces as well!!! lets keep this alive!!

Is that Raphael head from a movie or a custom head because It doesnt seem to resemble the movie Raph's but maybe the Next Mutation or something? I have one of the fan made Canister of Ooze as well and love it and have hired an FX artist to make me a replica Raphael movie one head for display.

thanks for the compliments! the Display case is an Oakley metal display tower. Had to get it from a store.

I was told the raph head was a stunt mask for the fight scenes, but i honestly don't believe that. I feel its a fan made head, its well done and you can see inside when you put your head through the hole on the bottom with the zipper open.

im hoping to encourage other tmnt prop owners to post there stuff up. so this can be a definitive tmnt prop thread. its a hard movie to come by for props. cheers.

I love the turtles stuff, but I'm also a huge Oakley fan. As soon as I saw the display case, I knew what it was. I have an older model tower, but want to get a few of the model that you have if I can ever find them.
