Before Kevin Eastman became EIC of Heavy Metal Magazine, and wrote and produced one of the worst films I’ve seen in my life, he co-created the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles with Peter Laird, and he’s collected one of every piece of Turtles merch that has ever been produced.

Now he’s selling the collection. All of it. On ebay.

That is, quite simply, incredibly awesome. This includes the Leonardo costume worn by an actor in the first TMNT film.

Now, this is entirely likely that this will be broken up by whoever wins the auction for re-sale but still. Some of this stuff is kind of historically significant, as frankly the success of TMNT as a comic book helped lead the way for the rise of many comic publishers outside of Marvel & DC.

In particular, one would hope that, say, the Leonardo costume would get donated to, say, a museum?
