We had obtained an early release of Raphael so here are some more photos of the card front and card back featuring the amazing art from the MOTU team!
Here is how the artwork looks on cars with the logos and description from the card back.
Raphael Digital Card Art
Raphael’s card back art work is stunning. You can see Raphael battling against Sla’ker with Snake Mountain in the background!
Not only do we get a tease of Sla’ker on this card back, who we know is a Wave 2 deluxe figure, but we can also see Shredder alongside Skeletor being teased yet again on the card back as well. Skeletor is also shown in his classic look but from what we’ve seen in the mini comics, Skelly is also getting a turtle makeover.
Looking at Raphael more closely, the team did an amazing job translating the characteristics of this TMNT icon and MOTU’ized it!
Sla’ker looks like a hilarious take on Faker and the TMNT Slash figure! You can see he pizza’s through the busted chest armor and he comes in the classic Faker blue with orange, pink, and purple accents.
Raphael In Hand Images and Review
We did a full on review of Raphael but here are some images to see what he looks like out of the package. Clad in oversized armor, this heroic hard-headed sai specialist is a feast for the eyes! As nods to the Ram Man figure are apparent in the design, the addition of the turtlized aspects of the figure really shine through!
You can also dress Raph down and remove all of the armor if you prefer that look or if you want to change up your display.
He also looks equally amazing with just his left piece of shoulder armor!
The shoulder armor is cast in red plastic and is one piece that fits under his peg that slots into his shoulder.
Raphael comes with two oversized Sai’s for weapons, that stows neatly on his turtleshell!
Geared up or geared down, Raphael looks like an amazing mashup.
It seems like they mashed up Ram Man and Raphael as he comes with a removable helmet and he also has an oversized wrist bracer!
