IS THAT A LIFE-SIZE NINJA TURTLE?!: Dude's Parents Buy Furnished House, Hit The Ninja Turtle/Star Wars Jackpot

August 2, 2013


This is a gallery of the furnishings already in the house that Redditor Topherstiles' parents bought. Presumably the previous owner is dead because nobody alive would ever leave a life-size ninja turtle behind when they moved. Did I mention there are also life-sized Superman and stormtrooper statues? Because there are those too. Plus a bunch of TMNT and Star Wars artwork. It just doesn't make sense, now I have to know what happened to the previous owner. You think maybe THEY bought a prefurnished house with even NICER ninja turtle and Star Wars memorabilia? "Nope." Dead it is.

Hit the jump for a whole bunch more of the best real estate deal in history.














Thanks to Maestro, who bought a house and pulled up the floorboards and found a suitcase full of money. Jk jk, a skeleton. Dun dun dun!

    Never understood the ninja turtles and feal any adult that has their stuff is certifiably nuts. I call BS on story because any home that is repossessed by a bank gets gone through with a fine tooth comb by a reality management company before it is pout back on the market. Anything left inside would be removed and sold prior to anyone buying the home.

    He's got all four cold cast statues. I want those. I only have Mikey. The TMNT drawings are pretty great too. Looks like the classic Eastman-Laird drawings.
    Are those the real weapons used from the first movie? I want those too.

    In this day and age It is more likely the whole house and all content got repossessed for not paying the mortgage and loans to buy the stuff over dying. They where so much in debt they had to give it all up as part of the bankruptcy claim.

    I call bullshit. Reddit isn't exactly a reliable source.

    These guys indeed encounter a lucky find.

  • Mister Cerberus

    Needs more Donatello

  • Tyler AitchKay

    Wow, what a find.

  • Joel Lamm

    April must have finally broke off her relationship with Raphael. She couldn't stand the memories of the turtles, so she left them behind

  • John Harmon

    That would be heaven for me.
