Cowabunga Bogeyman! These Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle nightlights--3D deco lights to be precise--don't look quite as grand as the Krang belt buckle, but I guess it fits the Hero's Narrative that Leonardo, Donatello, Michelangelo, and Raphael should be relegated to blackness and tasked with guarding me against things that go bump in the night while Krang just sits there hitching a free ride on my...
