Check out our in-hand Beast Man Turtles of Grayskull MOTU Origins crossover review which blends the best of MOTU and TMNT together!
The Turtles of Graykull Wave 2 assortment does not disappoint and Beast Man is no exception! The way that the Masters of the Universe is integrating the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle aspects into these figures is outstanding! Beast Man is transformed into a Samurai (evil) warrior) and combines the best of the MOTU and TMNT worlds together, complete oversized armor and weapons into a unique helmet that will look amazing on your shelf! As of the penning and photoshoot of this post, Roy Juarez and the MOTU Team have yet to reveal the digital card art so we are happy to share it with you. We recently reviewed the wave 2 Mutated Ram Man, Raphael, and we added some in-hand images of Shredder to the official card art reveal so be sure to check those out too! Whether dressed up or down, Beast Man is one of the most interesting figures in the Turtles of Grayskull line.
Beast Man’s card back art work is a sight to behold. You can see Moss Man battling against Beast Man in front of Castle Grayskull with Skeletor watching overhead. It is apropos that these two are dueling as they shared the same buck in the MOTU vintage line from the 1980’s.
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 Turtles of Grayskull Wave 3 figure assortment.
He comes with a Samurai helmet, updated Beast Man chest armor, gold colored turtle shell embossed shoulder armor, a cool Samurai skirt.
The detail on the mask is outstanding and really pays homage to the Samurai culture. The gold and blue paint app blends right into each other to bring out the details in his hemlet.
The oversized arm armor might make Man-At-Arms jealous and it features turtle shell details and some splashes of white to set each layer of the armor off!
There are several ways to display Beast Man with or without his armor, which will add some variety to your shelf.
Weapons and Accessories
Beast Man comes clad in his armor and he also comes with a new whip and a reused shield painted in blue with some gold accents
Beast Man’s armor is fully removable and the armor has a very cool gold and blue color scheme that looks like it was airbrushed on!
The whip and a shield are also cast in a blue paint app and the shield has some nice gold piping around the outer portion of it. The cool with a cool kabuki mask shield that we saw in the official images did not come with Beast Man so we wrote up a fun article trying to figure who it might belong to.
Taking a look at the Turtles of Grayskull version (left) and the MOTU Origins release (right), Beast Man’s face is painted differently and his medallion on his chest harness is also painted gold and blue to match his armor.
