Happy New Year! It’s raining Turtles of Grayskull figures on New Years day as Wave 1 and Wave 2 have gone up for preorder on Entertainment Earth, BBTS, and Amazon! We’ve collected all of the direct links to where you can preorder the figures below!
Turtles of Grayskull Wave 1
We don’t know an exact release date for the Turtles of Grayskull Wave 1 assortment but The Whole Shebang is giving a ship date of February 2024!
The Leonardo Turtles of Grayskull figure can be preordered at The Whole Shebang:
The packaging for Leonardo looks freaking amazing!! Inspired by the traditional red rock burst packaging of the MOTU Origins line in Turtle inspired colors, this new packaging includes additional illustrations on the front of both He-Man and Leonardo dawning his new MOTU gear! Masters posted a large image of only one half of the rear artwork as it shows Leonardo battling Shredder!
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.
The Donatello Turtles of Grayskull figure can be preordered at The Whole Shebang:
Donatello’s package front is the same as Leonardo’s with the traditional red rock burst in Turtle inspired colors, and the additional illustrations on the front of both He-Man and Leonardo dawning his new MOTU gear as welI. It also has bothe the MOTU and TMNT logos on the front blister bubble. This one is titled ” Donatello Heroic Turtle-At-Arms!”
Dontello’s armor is one of my favorites and it really blends the crossover nature of this figure, making it stand out above the rest. The purple color plays very nicely off the green from the figure buck. The armor also has turtle shell detail on the chest armor, which is really pronounced on the protruding armor that covers his throat. The silver detail and molded parts on the armor are very Man-At-Arms as the pieces look bolted on to the chest armor. The forearm and bicep armor are two separate pieces, which also have a turtle shell motif.
The Man-At-Arms Turtles of Grayskull figure can be preordered at The Whole Shebang:
The Man At-Arms package features the same artwork as Leonardo and Donatello. This one is titled ” Man at Arms Weapons Masters in a Half Shell” He look really cool on this colorful card back, and he took has some awesome artwork that we only get to see half of!
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! Getting a closer look at the head sculpt and helmet design, it appears that the helmet could be removable. The helmet also has a samurai feel to it with the black armor coming down and covering his cheeks and the back of his neck. They gave Man-At-Arms a nice thick mustache and his face sculpt came out nicely! In classic Man-At -Arms fashion, he is clad in yellow armor that reminds me of the MOTU Origins release. He also comes with oversized left shoulder armor that have blue metal plates that are the same color as his helmet.
The Mutated He-Man Turtles of Grayskull figure can be preordered at The Whole Shebang:
Lastly we have the packaging and artwork for Mutated He-Man. The packaging for Mutated He-Man looks freaking so cool as since he is a villian, the front illustration are different! Again inspired by the traditional red rock burst packaging of the MOTU Origins line in Turtle inspired colors, but this time there is additional illustrations on the front of both Skeletor and Shredder in his new MOTU gear! He is looking very scary on the artwork and you can see a red Eternian sky behind him!
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. The colors on this figure are so whacky and over the top that and it looks great! He has neon green hair with a black headband and red beady eyes. He has a snarled look on his face and you can see the mutagen running down his neck and into his chest. The chest harness has the classic Masters of the Universe ‘H’ and the coloring is very anti-Eternia! The red spikes are raised and give the armor straps a very cool look that add depth to the design. The translucent plastic is a fansaticdesign choice as this reminds me of how Mattel designed the Masters of the WWE Universe figure, Faker (aka John Cena…I bet you are humming his entrance music as you are reading this…you are welcome). You can also see the mutagen green infecting the arms and, in the translucent parts, it creates a cool effect! The spiked mace reminds of the weapon that the MOTU character Spikor wields, but without the handle. The wrist cuffs also have very large spikes, which gives the figure a meaner look!
