Check out our Masters of the Universe Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles crossover Leonardo Turtles of Grayskull review

We’ve covered the Turtles of Grayskull quite a bit and, thanks to Mr. Home Arcade, who surprised us with Leonardo, we now can show off the figure in all of his glory! If you have not subscribed to Mr. Home Arcade’s YouTube channel, you are truly missing out! If you recall, he recently sent us images of Mutated He-Man so we can finally answer the question on everyone’s mind regarding how translucent (or not) the figure was (check out the Mutated He-Man in hand images). The Turtles of Grayskull Wave 1 and 2 were officially revealed back in October, it’s amazing to get this figure in hand early! We recently discovered that the Turtles of Grayskull Wave 1 assortment has a street date of January 2024, so we should be seeing these showing up on shelves some time in the New Year. Leonardo is dubbed the Heroic Ninja Turtle Leader and is akin to He-Man. With bright blue armor and two halves of the Power Sword, Leonardo packs some turtle fun in the playful TMNT MOTU crossover line.


Here is how Leonardo looks great alongside Man-At-Arms (if you have not seen the in hand review of the ToG MAA, check them out!) and you can also see the loghter green color on Leonardo next to the darker green Man-At-Arms.



The packaging for Leonardo is stunning with the use of purple and green colors along with the extra illustrations on the front of the package. On the back of the card, you can see Leo scrapping with Shredder with Castle Grayskull in the background.


Figure Details

Overall, Leo has a green skin tone with bright blue armor pieces, a blue bandana and a removable shell with a faux fur overlay that rests over the shell. He also has a nice piece of blue waist armor that gives him protection in all of the right places.


Hi also has silver wrist cuffs and boot like socks that go up to his shins! You can also see the new sculpts for his turtle feet and hands.


The blue bandana ties in with all of his blues on this armor and shin boots, which is sculpted to look like it is blowing in the wind.


The blue armor also looks like a turtle shell as he has two large pieces of shoulder armor and one piece of forearm armor on his left side.


His shell is light brown and has a slot to stow his power sword! He also has a cool plate of armor with an ‘L’ in the center. The armor straps are painted sliver to match the silver chest plate. The chest plate has a blue boarding with rivets, making it look like a piece of metal.


Weapons and Accessories

Leo comes with two halves of a power sword that join together to form one single blade and a removable shell that doubles as a shield.


The turtles shell has a nice milk chocolate brown color that has black strap and a slot to stow his power sword.


Up close, you can see the unique design of the sword and you can also take a gander at Leo’s fingernails, which is a nice detail they added to the hand.


His Power Sword stows nicely on his back, which gives him a different look and an alternate way to display him.


Turtles of Grayskull Mini Comic

The mini comic that came with Mutated He-Man is the International version so it does not contain text so the creative Toy Sorceress has fleshed out an amazing story!


The mini comic starts out with He-Man, Man At Arms, Moss Man and Ram Man in Man At Arms workshop. Suddenly Teela and Roboto run in and Roboto projects an image to them that seems like there is some sort of dangerous portal they need to go respond to. They all rush off from the Palace of Eternos, He Man on Battle Cat, and the rest of Stridors, While they are gone, a change begins to fall over Eternia. So our first teases here are both Teela and Roboto. As we saw in Mouse-Jaw Turtles of Grayskull Box Reveal BAF Teela Tease, we saw Teela dawning Turtle clad armor! They arrive at the portal and an evil presence arrived. Suddenly what looks like Trap Jaw comes out of the woods, but wait, it’s not Trap Jaw, its Mouse Jaw followed with a bunch of mousers!


The mousers attack the Heroic Warriors and they try to fight off the mousers the best they can, but they begin to get overwhelmed. Suddenly some help comes from out of the blue! Its the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles! The mini comic shows the Turtle bros in their cartoon style illustration. Mouse Jaw didn’t know what hit him!


Our Heroic Warriors capture Mouse Jaw and start to take him away through the swamp land. As they make their way back, Man at Arms finds a strange canister.


Meanwhile, back on Dimension X, we see Krang and Shredder with a portable display where you can clearly see Castle Grayskull! The Castle is the source of great power, and they wonder how they can get their hands on it! They open the dimension portal and suddenly the Ninja Turtles attack! Do they all get sucked into the world of Eternia? Because on the next page we see the Turtles all clad in Eternian armor along with our Heroic Warriors Man at Arms, Teela and Roboto! Here again we see Teela dawning the same Turtle armor she was illustrated in on the Mouse Jaw Box Art! Yet another tease, confirming she must be coming to the line in a future wave! On the center left panel on page 8, you can also see Mouse Jaw in a jail cell, but now his colors have changed. He looks like he is now in his Mini Comic color way, can this be yet another tease? Suddenly we get a close up of Michaelangelo outfitted in Battle Armor and wearing a blonde wig! This again is another tease for the yet to be revealed fourth brother who undoubtably will be coming in a future wave! Of course, Mikey has to whip out a pizza pie for the gang to enjoy!


Pages 9 and 10 bring us to Snake Mountain where Skeletor sits on his bone throne and is joined by none other than Shredder in Horde armor and a Megator inspired Krang! Suddenly we see in the next animated cell, none other than Leatherhead and he is struggling to hold onto a prisoner! Who is that, but Mutated He-Man! So here we have yet another tease for Leatherhead!
