Raphael Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Statue
Raphael TMNT Statue, based on the Nickelodeon TV series. Raphael is ready for battle with his sais and red mask. Temperamental and hot-headed, Raphael is always primed for a fight. With his twin sais at the ready and a rebellious glint in his eyes, even his brothers know to stay out of his way as they enter battle. Raphael, nicknamed Raph, is a fictional superhero and one of the four main characters of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles comics and all related media. He is generally depicted as the second oldest/mid-middle-child of the turtle brothers, but has once been portrayed as the eldest. He is usually depicted wearing a red eye mask; in this regard he is the only turtle to retain the color in all media, whereas the others each received a different color. Raphael wields twin sai, the points of which are usually sharpened, as his primary weapon. Raphael is most famous for his temperamental and cynical personality, being short-tempered, aggressive, sullen, maddened, sarcastic, and rebellious. He is portrayed in most interaction as speaking with a Brooklyn accent.
It may be a coincidence, but the fact that he has a bad and fiery attitude and temper and the fact that his mask is still red may be linked, since the color red is typically associated with anger. The origin of Raphael’s anger is not always fully explored, but in some incarnations appears to stem partly from the realization that they are the only creatures of their kind and ultimately alone. He also has a somewhat rival relationship with his only older brother Leonardo because he is seen as the group’s leader. Raphael also gives his younger and youngest brother Michelangelo a hard time because of Michelangelo’s fiery optimism. He is the second eldest of the turtles, and third-in-command. Like all of the brothers, he is named after a Renaissance artist; in this case, he is named after the 16th century Italian painter Raphael. In 2011, Raphael placed 23rd on IGN’s Top 100 Comic Book Heroes, a list that did not feature any of his brothers. He is the only Teenage Turtle brother whose name does not end in the letter “O“, even though the artist he got his name from is in fact called “Raffaello“. Raphael Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Statue size: 3.5 inches / 9 cm x 3.5 inches / 9 cm x 4.5 inches / 11.5 cm.
