Why a TMNT book? Well for starters, it's never been done before. What started as a compendium of classic figures ended up being an action figure book of epic proportions. perhaps the largest action figure and accessory book ever. The book covers practically every TMNT action figure series from 1988 to the date of this campaign. The book will also cover vehicles, weapons, statues, accessories, and packaging. I have have been a TMNT fan since my mother sat me in front of an episode as a kid.

Over Three years of book publishing experience.

This is not just any book. Infact , if the goal is met, then it will be the largest and most extensive action figure book ever. I want to seriously want to submit this book as a guinness book world record. Every donation and backer will get a photo and name in the back of the book. This is not just any project. I only do projects that i'm passionate about . This book took over 3 years and i want to make it special for every backer.

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.
