The tiny brain-like alien from Dimension X has arrived to dominate our world. But first, he needs a body. It’s hard to find a little pink blob threatening when you could punt him into a trashcan. So luckily, The Shredder built him a towering … mostly naked android body, complete with matching red shoes and undies!
A statue honoring that iconic look from the 1987 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cartoon is being made by PCS.
Krang’s standard edition statue is priced at $875. The 1/4 scale statue is 22″ tall. The deluxe version comes with a stand-alone Krang, who’s not too happy to be without his big boy body. Unfortunately, this option boosts the statue’s price up to $925.
The Krang Statue measures 22” tall and 20” wide as Krang pilots his android body. In the suit’s hollowed out stomach is Krang himself, pink and gelatinous, a toothy grin and shifty eyes no doubt showcasing an evil plan for world conquest. Standing on a base of cracked flooring and rubble, this super-villain is more than ready to take over!
The backside of Krang’s android body is amusing. I never noticed how thicc this rig was. It looks like a mid-card wrestler from some rural pro-wrestling promotion in the 1970s. I don’t know if the inspiration behind the design was Andre the Giant or George “The Animal” Steele, but I would not doubt it.
When I look back on it, Krang and Shredder were the best things about the ’87 series. As a kid, the Turtles were #1, but as an adult, the bickering between the two villains is where the writers’ had the most fun. I figured these two would eventually fall into poverty and become co-dependent. My late buddy Lowtax expanded on this with a documentary called Krang: The Later Years. Check it out below:
