Vintage TMNT Figure Hunt Officially Over!

The final two  arrived yesterday ,Donatello and Raphael.Many of you who have followed my whiny,vintage needs,posts can finally breath a sigh of relief.You don't have to hear me bitching about how much I need a set of vintage ninja turtles anymore.And even If It wasn't annoying you,It was annoying the crap out of me.So much so that I took matters into my own hands,sold off a couple of figures and went to eBay to go on a  TMNT cyber hunt,even If It meant cutting the cost by buying them  without any weapons.I knew It wasn't going to be easy and that I was going to have to make sacrifices because complete ninja turtles on eBay nowadays are ridiculously expensive.I wanted mine to come with,at least, their web gear/belts.Leo came with his web gear and so did Mikey ,along with one nun chuck and a couple of extra weapons.Leo was about 13 bucks shipped and Michelangelo  $7.Donatello and Raphael came together ,$ 9.99 for the pair for the pair.Donatello came weaponless w/web gear and Raph came naked.While not the mintiest of sets,It Is a set nonetheless.One that I can finally scratch off of my vintage wants list.I'm hoping I can come across some loose weapons and Raphaels web gear at some point ,but It's not imperative that I do so.I'm perfectly fine with what I have now.
