afpronJust in time for the holidays, my #Mondo #TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles #TMNT 1/6 scale Leonardo has arrived! (Shown here with his 1/12 scale #NECA counterpart from way back when.) Originally targeted for a 2nd quarter shipment this year, Leo was worth the wait. Mondo ran into some issues with looseness in the joints, which set back production. In the figure I got, joints are reasonably stiff with none coming stuck. Time will tell how they hold up.
Sculpt and paint work is top notch. Leo comes with fair amount of accessories, including (among others) climbing hands, a grappling hook, and un-mutated versions of Splinter and himself. And of course, he also has a blue masked head for cartoon fans.
The articulation is decent, barring a couple of points that are somewhat limited. I'd like to see more range of motion in the hips. And the ankles, while featuring the awesome tilt that you get on newer Marvel Legends, is limited in the lean forward position - no Smooth Criminal poses for Leo.
It looks like Mondo has a few of the standard Leonardo figures still available for $149.99 (http://afpics.link/2hnvUUP). At this price point for a 1/6 scale figure of this quality, it's a steal! Go get yours today!
