NECA Michelangelo 4 NICK PALMA
-->> Hey, Everyone .. Tokka here!!
The orginal TMNT Film trilogy; Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Secret of the Ooze & Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III's Nick Palma
is one on the the EPIC unsung martial arts heroes of this ever growing franchise.
Following in the footsteps of his childhood silver-screen hero, Bruce Lee - Nick has channeled his martial arts talents into the entirety of his life. Serving his Country, children in his community struggling with the challenges of ADHD, and imperatively to TMNT Fan community he served as Michelangelo's "ACTION TURTLE" & Stunt actor in the Second, classic Turtles flick!! Time traveling to the Third TMNT movie, Nick served as a stunt actor and embraced his dark side as he also played one of evil Warlord Norinaga's ( Acting Legend Sab Shimono !! ) mighty Elite Castle Guards !!
Nick and his family have been been so kind and grateful to his fans, appreciating each and every one of them. Constantly posing for photos, and interacting with his guests & their kids at conventions and special appearances. And even going as far as to do actual martial art demonstrations , mini - tutorials & visits with the little ninjas in full, custom Mikey Costume gear !! When fans visit Nick, they can rest assured they are gonna get more than just an signed glossy, a handshake and a selfie. Nick loves his fan-base sincerely and dearly !!
During SDCC 2018 , Nick was kind enough to sign my NECA Classic TMNT Movie 6" figure box set. I asked he had one of the larger scale Michelangelo 1/4 scale figures ( 16.5 inch ) because he was an offical Fighting Turtle at one point !! He said "No" and modestly & honestly admitted that he was grateful just to play the role.
This is the guy that brought the energy and skill of Michelangelo's hyper nunchaku-flying and surfer ninjitsu prowess to life !! His work has inspired generations of TMNT fanatics and continues to as older fans present the classic films to their children and so forth !!
So nonetheless i was compelled to reward Nick with a NECA Michelangelo. as a gift from me & from Ninja Fans Young & Young at HEART. I told him i would find a way.
This month, I secured 1 NECA Quarter Scale Mikey for Nick from my distributor connection. I fronted a portion of the money needed to secure the piece and just need to raise a small amount; $ 155 - to pay for the rest + shipping to Nick from my distributor. This was entirely my idea, so do NOT feel obligated in anyway !!
There is no deadline and this GoFundMe campaign will cease one we have raised the the amount needed to ship Nick the NECA piece.
With your blessing, Nick would like whomever donates names so he can thank them, possibly by displaying the names with Mikey at his table during conventions !! We'll see what we can do,
I will do my best to update everyone on this and any messages from Nick here, on GOGreenMachine.com & terrible2z.com social media !!
Thanks for your time and consideration, Snapper Pals !! COWABUNGA !!
