A bunch of drawings of Mondo Gecko, Mike’s radical reptile buddy from Ninja Turtles. I forgot to draw his elbow pads. Oh well. In the toy his skateboard also had an engine on it (you’d have to be ridiculously strong to not only stand on an engine powered skateboard and not be blown off, but do stunts on one, but it was a tubular idea anyway) but I thought it would get in the way of the picture, so I removed it.

Here are some more pics:

You have solved one of my childhood mysteries. I had an action figure of this guy I got from someone when I was little and I never knew who the hell he was XD.

Looks just as great as the toy did~

I love what you did with this one. The colors are just so right. From the graffiti down to the skateboard, you nailed it.

Hmmm I would have loved this guy as a kid if I knew about him since I loved Geckos back then lol.
Other than that, great work with the colors along with these crazy and EXTREME poses!

thanks. Yeah, I was a reptile fiend as a kid, so I loved him, along with many TMNT characters.

One  of  the  best  things  about  the  new  TMNT  series  is  that  they're  bringing  light  to  these  barely  remembered  characters  from  the  old  days. I  faintly  remember  seeing  the  Mondo  Gecko  toy  but  I  never  remembered  him  in  the  cartoon. :D

Great  work  on  him, my  good  sir!!!

Thanks. He was pretty popular among major TMNT fans back in the day, but was only in the cartoon about 2 times. My favorite thing about when they brought him back in the 2012 series is that he's voiced by the 1990 movie Mike voice actor. I agree, the new TMNT does a great job of representing all things TMNT from the past.

I never even knew of this guy until now. Always nice to learn something new.

There were a lot of one off characters in TMNT. He was meant to be Michelangelo's best buddy but was only in about one or two episodes. He had an awesome toy back in the day, though, and appeared in the comics by Archie. They even brought him back in the modern reboot.

Oh, Gex, the years have not been good to you.

LOL. I guess he got sucked into the TV during the X Games.
