THE TMNT ACTION FIGURE ENCYCLOPEDIA (Canceled)
The First Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Action Figure Book. A coffee table book of TMNT figures, vehicles, & accessories from 1988- 2017.
Please revist the relaunched campaign below. Thank you
Why a TMNT book?
Well for starters, its never been done before. What started as a compendium of classic figures ended up being perhaps the largest action figure and accessory book ever. The book covers practically ever TMNT action figure series from 1988 to 2017. The book will also cover vehicles, weapons, statues, accessories, and packaging. The book will have action figures both inside and outside of the packaging.
I have been a fan of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle action figures, series, and franchise since my mother sat me in front of an episode as a kid. This is not just any ordinary book. In fact, if successful, it will be the most extensive action figure book ever. The final print will have over 5000 figures, weapons, vehicles, figure packages, and accessories. I also want to submit the final massive book for a possible Guinness book world record. So this will not only be the first and only TMNT action figure book but the largest and most extensive action figure book ever.
What about the vehicles ?
The book or shall i say encyclopedia is filled with vehicles. The book is filled with vehicles from 1988 to 2017. There are comparisions of orginal and retro vehicles. There is also release dates , descriptions, and key information on nearly every vehicle released since 1988.
I have reached out to several people in the TMNT community and everyone has been helpful. The owner of tmnttoys.com has even agreed to write the foreword if the project is successful.

Risks and challenges
The book is already complete. Every project comes with its own unique risks and challenges. I've taken extra steps and preparations to overcome any issues. For starters, most of the book is complete minus backer photos and names. Over 90% of the book is complete with actual physical book photos. This was to show each backer the years of work that I've put into this book. It was also done to expedite the printing process. Once the funding period is over, only names and photos will be added to the book. I will start the collection of names daily during the campaign. I will also update newly released figures during the funding period. I will then do a confirmation of names and photos a week after the funding period. The final proof will be completed a week after the funding period. Then the printing of the book will start. I have over 3 years of experience with the same print factory that does business with some of the biggest corporations in the world, such as Samsung. I also have a Customs broker and logistics company intact. I've included both photos of the print company and a timeline for the shipment of books.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
