Roy Juarez has just revealed the new Krang Turtles of Grayskull MOTU Origins TMNT Crossover Deluxe Walmart Exclusive Box! This isn’t the first time we’ve seen Krang’s box as it was on display at CCXP Brazil 2023 along with Waves 1 and 2. You can see the incredible packaging he comes in, which is just like the Mouse-Jaw Turtles of Grayskull Box we saw revealed last month. Unlike the Mouse Jaw box reveal, this one does not give us any additional figure teases nor Build a Figure parts. The artwork showcases the amazing artisitcally ability of @axel.gimenezand and @fetch.franciscoetchart!

Krang Bio Card
It looks like they are packing in an extra bio card like they did with the Ruler’s of the Sun 3-pack figures!
The box looks stunning in purple and Krang was the perfect figure to be backed in a special box as he fills out the entire window!
It’s amazing to see the art with out the branding and text as it shines in all of it’s glory!
Close up, we can see a full render of Krang from the head down to the brain!
In a close up shot, the head looks amazing and I love the metal mask over the eyes and seeing the painted armor up close!
In the next image, we can see Krang is all of his glory!
December 21, 2023: Krang Box Reveal
Today is the day that Roy Juarez revealed the video of Krang’s box!
According to Roy Juarez on Instagram
In a mad science experiment gone wrong, Krang crosses dimensions and discovers the strongest power in the universe, The Power of Grayskull. Now with a stronger, faster Megator android body, Krang will stop at nothing until the power is his.Roy Juarez on Instagram
You can see the incredible art that covers every square inch of this packaging! From the illustrations of Krang on front of the package next to the Turtles of Grayskull logo, with the caption ” Alien Brain in a Megator Android”. Ooze covered sewer pipes adorn the sides of the window display. The front of the window also has beautiful Masters of the Universe and TMNT sticker logos as well.
Krang is artfully displayed in the window box showing off his Megator Android -body, the Krang brain, the center body piece that Krang rides in, and his mace and axe weapons. The two sides of the box feature stunning illustrations of Krang as well.
The package artwork features Megator Krang going up against Raphael with a beautiful illustration of Snake Mountain in the background. The Megator Android body has one hand as a chained spiked mace ball and the other hand is holding a axe.
The back of the packaging also gives us instructions on his action features. Here it shows how you can “insert Krang into the Megator Android” body and “swap hands with axe of mace”
Krang’s Box Revealed at CCXP Brazil 2023
Thanks to canaldosrosmineiros for posting images of some really amazing Turtles of Grayskull display and MOTU goodness! The Turtles of Grayskull Waves 1 and 2 are seen in an amazing cylindrical display as the figures are on display front and center. Along with the ToG line, there were some other photos of the booth showing Snake Mountain and some random MOTU Origins and Masterverse figures. These were on display at the yearly CCXP 2023 con, which, for Brazil, is equivalent to San Diego Comic Con in the U.S. This was the first time we’ve seen Krang’s box ahead of the official reveal on Instagram.
Here is a video of the booth where you can see the figures in more detail.
You can see all of the Turltes of Grayskull on full display and they are the actual figures and not the production images we have been seeing for he past month. You can see Krang’s box in the lower left corner of the display.
It’s so cool to see the booth display as we have not seen the images of the Walmart exclusive Krang in box before.
Krang Walmart Exclusive
The deluxe Turtles of Grayskull figures from waves 1 and 2 are gping to be big box retailer exclusives. An anonymous source has disclosed the figures who are headed for which retailer and we are, yet again, in a “don’t shoot the messenger” moment but such is life. Two of deluxe figures are headed for Target and the other two are headed for (wait for it) WALMART! I can imagine, as Obi -Wan Kenobi eloquently put it in Star Wars, “millions of voices suddenly cried out in terror.” As we can’t control where these figures land, all we can do is band together as one community to help each other out to find the toys we love before the scalpers do. Krang will be a Walmart exclusive. It looks like Krang uses the Andre the Giant buck from the WWE Superstars line. As you can see, he has the Krang Robot body style head, visor and all, and it looks like Horde chest armor.
He is wearing a red helmet, red gloves, a black loin cloth with what looks like a bronze chain, and red boots.
Krang’s brain is in a center portion that from the images looks like it can be removed as the Origins bucks have that modularity to them.
