Official Images

Huge shout out to Dan Diego for sending us these images that were posted on Twitter via: Stateoverse X (twitter.com)! Let’s take a look at these incredible images!

Man-At Arms

We can finally see Man-At-Arms stripped down to the bare essentials and all of the armor pieces and weapons are on display! He comes in his classic Man-At-Arms yellow armor that has been turtle’ized and even his classic mace is larger too! His chest armer has a nice fur look to it and some parts even resemble turtles, like this shield and his shoulder and leg armor.


We can also see how his turtleshell armor attaches to the back and integrates with the fur piece! The oversized armor looks great on the figure!


Originally we thought that MAA’s helmet would be removable but the jury is still out on that one but we are now thinking that his helmet is sculpted onto his head.



Donatello also carries the same club/staff that Man-At-Arms does, and why wouldn’t he? He is also wearing MAA style armor so this is very fitting.


The purples, yellows, and greens go very well with the figure and it’s great to see a Turtle clad in all that armor!


His turtle shell armor can hold the large mace/staff and his chest armor harkens back to Man-At-Arms concept in MOTU with the furry parts going around his arms, which matches the color of his turtleshell.



Leonardo comes with light blue armor that covers his left arm, part of his right arm, and his goods around the waist, which is samurai inspired.


He also comes with a turtleshell on his back with a furry’like plastic piece that drapes over his shoulders.


You can see him wielding the two power swords that form into one, just like the vintage MOTU figures.



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!



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.


Beast Man

Using the classic MOTU Origins Beast Man, this new Turtles of Grayskull version comes packed with a bunch of Samurai inspired accessories to give him that Ninja inspired look!


He comes with a Samurai helmet, updated Beast Man chest armor, gold colored turtle shell embossed shoulder armor, a cool Samurai skirt, a new blue whip which is oriental inspired and a brand new shield with a coll kabuki mask looking face sculpted into it!


Beast Man looks amazing all geared up as he is ready to take on anyone!


You can see how cool Beast Man looks in his new Samurai inspired battle gear!


Mutated Ram Man

Mutated Ram Man is a throw back right to animal inspired TMNT mutants like Bebop and Rocksteady!


As you can see Mutated Ram Man is a mutated ram with Ram Man armor! He has Ram horns on his head, and a goat goatee on his chin! He is made of a translucent purple plastic and he even has furry ram like feet!


He comes with Ram Man’s signature Origins axes and has shoulder armor with spikes! He is also wearing the classic Ram Man chest armor and his belt buckle has a ram sculpted on it.


Mouse Jaw

Trap Jaw (or Mouse Jaw) is also joining the line and boy is he supercharged! He has a while helmet and a flame attachment with a blast effect that looks like the Mouser from TMNT. It also looks like Trap Jaw’s attachments on his belt can be used to form an actual Mouser! How freakin cool is that?


Mouse Jaw is a cross between Trap Jaw and a Mouser! He has Trap Jaw’s arm, but perhaps using the new Cartoon Collection sculpt, and his head isTrap Jaw with a Mouser head for his helmet! There is also a full Mouser included that can be attached to his arm as well!


He also comes with Roboto’s attachments in a light blue color, which is a departure from his normal set of weapons like his hook, laser blaster, and his claw.


Mutated Moss Man

Mutated Moss Man looks to be a cross between Moss Man and the stranger things Demogorgon. He is made of translucent green plastic and not flocked. He comes packed with a Demogorgon accessory and 2 translucent blue blast effects.


Mutated Moss man is wearing some crazy purple armor that looks very organic, like weeds growing off his body. He has brand new beast like hands and he has Demogorgon feet!


From all angles, Moss Man looks like a force to be reckoned with!



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.


Mutated He-Man

Muted He-Man looks as if he has a change in figure buck style as the official images show him with a solid figure sculpt, versus using translucent plastic!


He comes with a silver mace that is reminiscent of Spikor’s weapon! The differences in weapons and paint apps are also apparent.


The figure sculpt aside, Mutated He-Man looks like he’s a beast with mutagen pulsating through his veins!


He also has oversized spiked wrist cuffs, which look great and go along with his belt and weapon!



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.


Special thanks to toyhuntershollow for posting these higher resolution images of the newly revealed characters, so we can see how amazing they will look!

I love Shredder and his awesome chest, shoulder and wrist armor! Also Mutated Ram Man looks like he is a translucent purple plastic! He looks like an actaul mutated Ram, with horns and all! This is a wonderful homage to the classic Bebop and Rocksteady who were mutated crosses of animals themselves. How cool is that?

Here we get to another one of the turtle brothers, Raphel, but we are still missing Michaelangelo. Perhaps he will come out in the next wave! Then we have a samurai inspired Beast Man!

Sla’Ker looks like Slash of course, and then we have a very interesting Mutated Moss Man who is not flocked, and looks to be a translucent green! It also looks like Moss-Man is reusing the new Demogorgon feet!

October 17, 2023: Turtles of Grayskull Wave 1 Revealed

Today is the day where we get to see the long rumored Turtles of Grayskull for the MOTU Origins! It looks like we’ll be getting TMNT versions of our favorite MOTU characters that will be turtle’ized and vice versa! We first saw this revealed at Toy Fair 2023 showing Leonardo’s cardback! Mattel’s official words, posted on their @Masters page says’ “The sewer-dwelling heroes in a half-shell meet the warriors of Eternia in the Masters of the Universe Origins Turtles of Grayskull, coming Spring 2024.” Given the image they shared, looks like they will be going deep in the line! On the MOTU side of the house, we have Beast Man, Skeletor, Trap Jaw, Ram-Man, Hordak, Man-At-Arms, Teela, and He-Man. On the TMNT side we have the top two baddies Shredder and Krang, and they are joined by Casey Jones, Raphael, Leonardo, Donatello, Michaelangelo, and Splinter.


The line goes both ways and will be amazing to see how this line builds out! The first six figures to be revealed are Leonardo, Donatello, Man-At-Arms, Krang, He-Man (or some mutated version of him) and Trap Jaw (which looks more like Mouser or Mouse Jaw)! It appears that the line is using the MOTU Origins buck for the figures as the Cartoon Collection line has different legs. We are also assuming that the parts swapability will be intact for this line as this will make kit bashing figures so much fun!



Leonardo looks more like a typical Leonardo figure, but with a MOTU style buck. He has his signature blue bandana, and he is wearing blue shoulder armor. He also has cool chest armor with an “L” in the MOTU style in the center of his chest armor.



Donatello looks like a TMNT version of Man-At-Arms and he is clad in purple armor and wields a staff that is shaped like MAA’s mace.



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. 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. He is wearing a red helmet, red gloves, a black loin cloth with what looks like a bronze chain, and red boots.


Man Art Arms, looks more that an actual Man At Arms figure, but you can see that he has a turtle shell shield and his trusty mace, He is clad in his yellow armor and he looks amazing!!


Mutated He-Man

He-Man has blue translucent skin and armor that is akin to Anti-Eternia armor! It appears like it is some form of a mutated version as the TMNT line there is Mutagen (A.K.A “The Ooze”), which is a chemical substance that comes from Dimension X, and the reason why the Ninja Turtles (and many of their friends and foes) were created into what they are today. He comes with a silver spiked club that is a reuse of Spikor’s MOTU Origins club.


Mouse Jaw or Mouser Jaw (Trap Jaw)

Trap Jaw (or Mouse Jaw) is also joining the line and boy is he supercharged! He has a while helmet and a flame attachment with a blast effect that looks like the Mouser from TMNT. It also looks like Trap Jaw’s attachments on his belt can be used to form an actual Mouser! How freakin cool is that?
