The Leonardo suit, worn by Mark Caso in Stuart Gillard’s finale to the 1990s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles trilogy, is up for grabs in a Prop Store auction – starting at £5,000 ($6,115).
You can buy this rotting, screen-used TMNT III Leonardo suit if you want. pic.twitter.com/f7no7LtGwl— Jayme K (@brainexploderrr) September 30, 2019
This costume was last seen on the set of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 3, better known as "not the Ninja Turtles sequel with Vanilla Ice in it, the other one" – in literally one hell of a state. The rubbery bodysuit looks like it spent the past two decades in the same sewer as the turtle team—its faded blue mask stretched above disintegrating eyelids and a ghoulish grin full of cracked resin teeth.
“Both the body and head of the costume show substantial breakdown to the foam latex elements and require restoration,” the Prop Store item description reads. But who will restore our nerves after seeing this abomination remains unknown.
Netizens couldn’t help but leave some of the other props that didn’t age well in the replies.
