Mystery Turtles of Grayskull Samurai Shield TMNT MOTU Origins Crossover Poll

We take a deep dive into the latest Masters of the Universe mystery Turtles of Grayskull Samurai Shield to figure out who it belongs to!

It appears that Mattel is once again playing Three-Card Monte with MOTU weapons and accessories. Since San Diego Comic Con 2023, we’ve been noticing a trend concerning the official images of figures from the Masters of the Universe Masterverse, Cartoon Collection, and Turtles of Grayskull lines. It’s becoming a fun game to figure where these mystery weapons and accessories go with which figure. when I line is launching, like the Cartoon Collection and the Turtles of Grayskull MOTU Origins TMNT crossover line, it can be pretty confusing who’s accessory goes with whom. To make a long story short, we are to raise two questions: What faction does this shield belong to and which figure is getting the badass Samurai shield that we see in the Turtles of Grayskull Official images? Before we do that, let’s take a trip down memory lane and review the last couple cases of Mattel official image oopsies.

Masterverse Movie Evil-Lyn Cosmic Key

With the Masterverse Movie Evil-Lyn figure, we saw a painted Cosmic Key both in Mattel’s SDCC 2023 booth reveals and the official images. When this happened, they were launching the new Masterverse line with the new packaging, which left collectors scratching their heads as to which Cosmic Key she would come with.

To further confuse things, we also saw a baby blue cast Cosmic Key in the official images.

If you were paying attention to the SDCC 2023 panel presentation, we do see Movie-Lyn’s baby blue Cosmic Key on the back of the box so mystery solved!

Cartoon Collection Sword of Ancients

The next weapon collector’s had to sort out also came from San Diego Comic Con 2023 but this was not too confusing at first! In Mattel’s booth, we clearly see He-Man raising the Sword of Ancients. Pretty straight forward right?

Given that Comic Con was in July 2023, Collectors only had to wait 3 months to be confused again as Cartoon Collection He-Man’s Sword of Ancients had a cameo in Cartoon Collection Beast Man’s official images that came out in October 2023. This was confusing as He-Man and Beast Man were part of the same wave, which left us wondering if Mattel was packing in meaningful weapons and accessories into the figures like the MOTU Classics line did!

Mystery Turtles of Grayskull Shield

To makes things confusing, the official images of Beast Man also showed him with a normal looking shield that goes along with the TMNT theme.

Samurai Shield Theory

Now that we’ve had the Turtles of Grayskull Waves 1 and 2 hitting collector’s hands and we know who makes up the Turtles of Grayskull Wave 3 assortment, including the deluxe assortment, we are pretty sure that the mystery shield will find it’s mate in Wave 4.

Given that Hordak and He-Man have not been revealed and are not part of the Turtles of Grayskull Wave 3 figure assortment, we can only speculate as to who this shield belongs to! Case closed? We’ll just have to wait and see when the Turtles of Grayskull Wave 4 is announced! Until then vote in our poll below!
