With the Turtles of Grayskull Wave 1 figures ringing in the New Year and Wave 2 going up for preorder soon after, some lucky collectors already have their hands on Wave 2! With the new figures come new card art and with new card art comes the teases! We broke the news that the Turtles of Grayskull Wave 3 figure assortment will have Skeletor, Teela, Casey Jones, and Michaelangelo as single carded figures while Leatherhead and Splinter are deluxe figures. Before we dive into the Beast Man Turtles of Grayskull card art and the teases, we would like to thank socalmotucollector on Instagram!
Beast Man Card Art Teases
Given that Skeletor is teased on Beast Man’s card art confirms that Skeletor is on his way. We also saw Skeletor in the mini comic that was released with Wave 1 and in both places, Skeletor was portrayed in his regular form, meaning he wasn’t Turtlized. Will he get the Turtle treatment, or will they just release an update version of Skeletor we all know?
Beast Man Card Art
The card art for Beast Man features an epic battle scene between Beast Man and Moss Man in front of Castle Grayskull. This clash of beasts is especially meaningful as Moss Man was a repaint (and flock) using the Beast Man Masters of the Universe vintage figure. This is also our first glimpse of how Moss Man is digitally rendered as an illustration on a card back and he looks awesome! You can also see Skeletor’s large boney melon overlooks the battle! We are taking this as our first tease of Skeletor coming to the Turtles of Grayskull line but we already know from a source that he will be part of the Wave 3 figure assortment.
Using the classic MOTU Origins Beast Man, this new Turtles of Grayskull version comes packed with a bunch of Samurai inspired accessories to give him that Ninja inspired look!
He comes with a Samurai helmet, updated Beast Man chest armor, gold colored turtle shell embossed shoulder armor, a cool Samurai skirt, a new blue whip which is oriental inspired and a brand new shield with a coll kabuki mask looking face sculpted into it!
Beast Man looks amazing all geared up as he is ready to take on anyone!
You can see how cool Beast Man looks in his new Samurai inspired battle gear!
Turtles of Grayskull Wave 3 Figure Assortment
The new Turtles of Grayskull MOTU Origins TMNT Crossover figures have fans super excited as we get getting new information this incredible new subline! As we saw in the Turtles of Grayskull MOTU Origins Mini Comic Teases article, several new characters were being teased to be coming to the line. According to an anonymous source, Wave 3 of the new Turtles of Grayskull MOTU Origins figures will consists of:
- Casey Jones
Since we only have the names of these figures in Wave 3, we will look at either teases thus far or what their character looks. As soon as more information is available or images revealed, we will be sure to update you!
Skeletor is a must have for any MOTU Origins line. Of course we have to have the evil warriors leader himself in this figure line. The question here is how are they going to Turtlize him?
On Pages 9 and 10 fo the Mini Comic that came with Donatello, we get to see Skeletor at Snake Mountain. He was illustrated sitting on his bone throne and was joined by none other than Shredder in Horde armor and a Megator inspired Krang! But Skeletor is illustrated in his normal look, there is nothing TMNT about him, so this does not let us know what they might do to him to Turtlize him. But it will be fun to find out!
I wonder what version of Skeletor’s face will we get in this line? Will it be the one with the articulated jaw like what came with Screech or will it be more like the vintage inspired version, or Cartoon Collection face sculpt?
Mikey is the fourth brother that has yet to be revealed in the Turtles of Grayskull MOTU Origins TMNT Crossover line. Well now we know he will be part of Wave 3! I can’t wait to see how they MOTUize him! We already know that from the mini comic tease, that he will have blonde hair and will be wearing Battle Armor, so he is an homage to Battle Armor He-Man. You can see in the image below what he looked like in the mini comic.
It will be so cool to see our favorite pizza eating turtle dawning a blonde hairdo and battle armor. Here we can get an idea of what parts of Battle Armor He Man they might incorporate into the design. Will Michaelangelo get that rotating drum battle damage effect? Only time will tell, but this is very exciting!
We saw Teela in turtle gear teased on both the recent Box Art reveal by Roy Juarez for the upcoming Mouse-Jaw deluxe Turtles of Grayskull and in the mini comic shown above. So it is a foregone conclusion that she will be dressed in green turtle inspired MOTU armor as depicted below.
Here again is the tease for Teela from the mini comic and what the MOTU Origins Teela Figure looks like. Will they use the original version or the Cartoon Classics one as it is hard to tell from these illustrations.
Casey Jones is a very cool TMNT character to include in this line. He has not yet been teased in any of the product illustrations so we don’t know how he will be MOTUized yet. Will he include his hockey gear somehow incorporated into Eternian battle gear? Only time will tell, but I can’t wait to find out!
