Check out the amazing Shredder Turtles of Grayskull Masters of the Universe Origins Card Art reveal by the talented MOTU team!
On the heels of their Mutated Ram Man official card art release, Roy Juarez and team have released the digital card art for the Wave 2 Turtles of Grayskull Shredder! We had obtained an early release of Shredder, which you can see from our last live stream and this is one of those rare occasions where we’ve obtained an early release of the figure before the card art is officially revealed.
In an Instagram post, Roy said “COWABUNGA DUDES! Here’s a closer look at the artwork and packaging for the upcoming Shredder, the evil master of ninjutsu from the #TMNT x #MOTU Turtles of Grayskull collaboration.”

We had obtained an early release of Shredder so here are some more photos of the card front and card back featuring the amazing art from the MOTU team! The Evil Master of Ninjitsu, Oroku Saki, card art teases his arch enemy, Hamato Yoshi, as we see them dueling on the back of the card!
Here is how the artwork looks on cars with the logos and description from the card back.
Shredder Digital Card Art
Like we discussed in our Turtles of Grayskull MOTU Origins Wave 3 Deluxe Exclusives article, we now know that Splinter will be part of the Turtles of Grayskull Wave 3 Deluxe Figure assortment along with Leatherhead! Not only do we get a tease of Splinter on this card back, but look how he is dressed! Splinter is dressed as none other than King Grayskull himself!
Here we can see Shredder battling it out against Splinter dressed as King Grayskull. There is a tease of the gnarled tree from the Fright Zone, as this is an appropriate location for this Hordak inspired version of Shredder to be battling.
Looking at Shredder more closely, the team did an amazing job translating the characteristics of this TMNT icon and MOTU’ized it!
Splinter has got to be included in this new subline as the Turtles need their sensei! Seeing him dressed as King Grayskull is super exciting and suits him perfectly as the wise leader of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles!
Given the illustration of Splinter, he is taking on the look of the MOTU Origins King Grayskull
Shredder In Hand Images
We didn’t do a full on review of Shredder but here are some photos we snapped so you can take a look at the figure in more detail if you are on the fence about the figure. This is another standout figure in the Turtles of Grayskull line and he comes with a axe and his overall armor has the look of hammered metal.
Shredder’s overall color scheme is silver, purple, and black with some slashes of red in the center of his chest and his beady eyes under his really cool helmet. He is a plastic cape that is integrated into his chest harness.
They did an amazing job sculpting a classic look for his shoulder armor and forearm gauntlets. The knee armor snaps around his shins really tightly and have a very cool design.

The Official Images for Shredder look incredible! He has Hordak like feet and an Evil Horde Cross bow and cool axe as well!
You can see how cool Shredder looks with his new Horde inspired weapons!
Weilding an axe or his crossbow, he looks great as the first Horde crossover figure.
