Mega Bloks Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Eastman & Laird's Collector Series Leonardo Action FigureEvery now and again a good pal drops by a present, like this Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Eastman & Laird's Collector Series Leonardo. You get a specially painted figure with some accessories and a fancy display stand. What's interesting is that Mattel (with their new peg brand Mega Bloks) put out really good mini-figures with a few bricks, basically getting around some licensing business by coming up with a really cool collectible format that is technically not an action figure. It ain't perfect, but it's neat.

Mega Bloks Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Eastman & Laird's Collector Series Leonardo Action Figure

This 2-ish inch scale figures are spiffy - the turtles have metal shells! Really! It's unpainted metal, with a hole in it for display. You can plug it in to the display stand, although it's not the fanciest of stands - there are a couple of signs on it, some scuffs, and a manhole cover. You'd probably be very happy with it if it was just the manhole cover piece at a lower price, but it's not nothing. There are all sorts of pipes on which to grip, plus a steering wheel, plus pegs to plug the figure's shell on - and clips to connect multiple ones together.

Mega Bloks Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Eastman & Laird's Collector Series Leonardo Action FigureThe figure is a surprisingly nice creation with about 19 points of articulation. The knees and elbows bend and swivel! The head has a ball joint! The wrists turn! It's like Mattel saw LEGO and said "We see you and raise you." The universal block figure format is cute and charming and will be wonderful for years - but this is basically what it would look like if you had a Marvel Legends or DC Universe Classics figure you could fit in your mouth. The foot peg holes are standard LEGO stud sizes, so you can use it with the included stand and maybe even some of your LEGO sets. This figure format really seems different than what LEGO did a few years ago.

Deco is good, for the size. The figure is coated with swirls of black paint that looks vaguely like the original comic book art, with grey rubbery elbow and knee pads plus a rubbery belt. Since it's based on a brick figure format he has no problems holding the twin katana swords, plus he can actually grip the ninja star by a blade. I'm surprised. Thanks to the weight of the metal shell, Leo doesn't stand so well. You're going to want to take advantage of the hole in the shell to hang him on his stand, or use the manhole foot pegs to keep him upright.

While this version of Leo was sold as a Toys R Us exclusive at the San Diego Comic-Con Entertainment Earth booth about a year ago, other versions of Leo are for sale - and can be had cheaply - online and in stores. Even as blind bags! They're pretty nifty, but my sample has an elbow that keeps popping out. It's a little annoying, but this is more of a figure you're going to display than play with. LEGO's simpler figures are more durable, but not as spiffy or impressive. I'm not saying you need to collect these, but I would absolutely suggest everyone buy one of these figures - now part of a rebranded "Mega Construx" line - just to give it a shot. Other licenses may be more to your interest.
