DC COLLECTIBLES BATMAN VS. THE TMNT, BATMAN & LEONARDO ACTION FIGURES: LEONARDO
Today we will be taking a look at Leonardo from the GameStop exclusive Batman vs the TMNT two-pack from DC Collectibles
This two-pack is based on the Batman vs TMNT animated movie that was released earlier this year.
Before we open this up, let's take a look at the packaging.
Leo and Batman come in the same style two-pack that the rest of the figures in this line come in. The top of the box has the Only @ GameStop sticker. Leo and Batman are clearly displayed in the middle with all the accessories visible. The bottom of the box has the Batman vs TMNT logo on the left and the names of the figures on the right side.
Turning the box to the side we get a turtle shell, the middle also lets us know that Batman has been sculpted by Paul Harding and Leo was sculpted by Johnathan Matthews
turning the box to the back we get a product shot of Leo and Batman along with the story “When a new menace in Gotham City begins stealing experimental technology, Batman is put on high alert, but a new team of warriors lurking beneath the streets is also on the case: The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles! Led by Leonardo, these brothers - brainy Donatello, fearless Raphael, and wisecracking Michelangelo - are mysterious martial artists on a collision course with the Dark Knight. Based on the hit DC Comics crossover, Batman vs Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is a high-flying, pulse-pounding adventure the likes of which Gotham has never seen!“ The Bottom of the box gives us a look at the rest of the two-packs. Robin & Raphael, Batgirl & Donatello, Alfred & Michelangelo and Ra’s Al Ghul & Shredder
Turning the box to the other side you have a good look at the side of Leo, This is nice for our friends who like to keep the figures mint inbox

What are Baby Huey's scores for the figure?
PAINT JOB 5/5
Paint on this figure is spot on, It really makes him look animated and that he really came right out of the movie.
FIGURE SCULPT / POSING 5/5
The sculpting on the figure is nicely done. This Batman didn’t have a complex look so it was easy to move him from the animated world to the toy world.
The figure is pretty solid. My figure, however, has a very lose right elbow swivel and it does make it a little hard when trying to pose the figure.
OVERALL SCORE 4.66/5
Batman is a really fun figure. only downside and i’m sure it’s with my copy, is that his right elbow is very loose. That aside he is grate.
RETAIL COST: $49.99
