In New York City, four young brothers secretly fight against evil, facing bandits and even alien invaders. Created in the comics by Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, or TMNT as they’re known, became a great success in the late 1980s, expanded to many media, and is revered until today by fans all over the globe, and now gains its first line of statues by Iron Studios. The heroes’ group is made of four mutant turtles that, thanks to a viscous substance called Mutagen or Ooze, acquired human-like characteristics and were baptized by their sensei with the name of Italian Renaissance artists. Trained in the ninjutsu martial arts by their master, a rat called Splinter, they use a sewer network as their home and headquarters. Their greatest arch-enemy is the evil Shredder, leader of the criminal ninja group Foot Clan.
Carrying a slice of pizza, his favorite food, in one of his hands, and one of his Nunchakus in the other, he jumps with his skateboard in a wall of bricks on the pedestal. Thus, Iron Studios present the statue “Michelangelo - TMNT – MiniCo”, bringing the happiest and most playful member of the Ninja Turtles. Loyal and affectionate, Mike or Mikey as he`s called by his brothers, is the youngest of the group, known for his optimism, his jokes, and his love for skateboarding and pizza. Using an orange mask, his name comes from the Italian architect and poet Michelangelo Buonarroti.
