Now shipping from MONDO and other toy outlets, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ Leonardo 1:6 Action figure. This is the figure that is based on the comic version from Eastman and Laird and reflects on the cartoon version as well. There are two versions of this figure, the MONDO Exclusive (which includes a piece of Shredder’s Armor) and a regular version which we featured here.
The figure comes in a box which contains beautiful artwork by artist Joe Allred. The front cover showcases the Turtles’ leader Leonardo in his cartoon version. The back of the box shows the Eastman and Laird version of all four Turtles sporting their red bandannas.
As soon as you open the front flap you see the figure and accessories.
On the opposite side is a schematic by Joe Allred.
The figure stands at about 10 inches tall. This is a big figure with a incredible sculpt.
The feet are the right size to hold the weight in a variety of poses (More on that later)
The sculpt really captures the early comic look which is complimented by the great paint and shadowing on the figure.
The belt and pads on the figure are a very hard rubber but pliable enough to look real.
You have the choice to change between the RED Comic version head or the BLUE cartoon version head. Which is fully poseable but unfortunately both heads are very, very tight when they attach to the body so if you are posing the head I recommend attaching it to the figure in the position you would like and not rotate it.
The articulation is well done have articulated wrists, elbows, shoulders, knees, thighs and rockers on the ankles.
The joints are tight enough to hold any pose while all the weapons fit perfectly into his hands.
Leonardo comes with a variety of different accessories
(2) Claw climbing hands and (1) pointer hand that is exclusive to Leonardo
The figure comes with a ULTRON laser gun not shown in this review.
The figure also comes with two unique accessories:
Young Master Splinter
Splinter is non articulated but the sculpt and color are so accurate you would think he fell out of the comic page.
Pre-mutate young Leonardo (Non-Articulated)
Concept art bonus (Not included)
This is amazing figure and I highly recommend this figure for any Ninja Turtle fan.
This is a poseable statue that does justice to the original Eastman and Laird comic.
I love the bonus accessories which is nice different treat for the fans.
The only problem I had with this figure was the head on the body being so tight but that is the only problem.
The figure retails for $150.00 but it is worth every hard earn cent and I look forward to getting the rest of the Turtles.
The figure is available now at on-line retailers.
Thanks for reading and enjoy.
