Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Michaelangelo's (Michelan Sisti) Hero Nunchaku

original movie prop

This is an original hero pair of nunchaku from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (1990). Each nunchaku measures 12" in length. They are made of solid wood, and the cords are leather. Michaelangelo's (Michelan Sisti) weapon of choice, aside from his pizza cutter, he can be seen carrying them throughout the movie. It is possible that the weapons were used again for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Secret of the Ooze (1991), although Mikey didn't twirl them around as much in the sequel due to complaints received from parent groups.


These nunchaku show an incredible amount of wear, including several scars on the wood and scattered splotches of white paint, evidence that they had quite the Foot workout.


According to Richard "Petie" Waldrop, the sequel's prop master, only three weapon sets were created for the first two Ninja Turtles movies, and Planet Hollywood has one. In his own words, he referred to these particular weapons as "the best" of them all.
