The Loyal Subjects Unveils 8″ Leonardo Vinyl Figures

After a successful run of 3.2” Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles vinyl figures, it would appear that The Loyal Subjects have decided to take a chance on some much bigger TMNT toys. To start things off, they have unveiled an 8” variant of their Battle Damaged Leonardo figure. The figure is more than twice the size of the previous models and requires more materials to build, so it comes with a heftier price tag as well.

At a price of $55, they have crafted a Leonardo vinyl figure modeled after their Comic-con exclusive Battle Damage line, which is based on the original comic book series from IDW. Sadly, the original set is now out of print, but it must have been pretty popular if they are now running with it for their first 8” TMNT vinyl toy. With 9 points of articulation, you’ll be able to recreate your favorite moments from the comics in style. As if that weren’t cool enough, they’ve also decided to make a variant specifically for fans of the cartoon series.

Utilizing essentially the same build, the 8” Metallic Leonardo figure features a metallic paint coat instead of the traditional black and white model. This time, Leo is sporting his classic blue face mask from the animated series. Thanks to the new coat of paint, this figure will cost a bit more with a price tag of $56. If Metallic Leo isn’t your style, they’ve also got a basic variant based on Nickelodeon’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series. Basically, if you’re a fan of Leonardo, The Loyal Subjects has got you covered.

Each figure comes in a windowbox with an insert card, so you can either leave them in the packaging or take them out for display. Personally, I’d prefer to display my TMNT vinyl figures, but that’s just me. After all, these are limited edition vinyls, so they will probably be worth a lot of money on the collector’s market.

My name is Justin Wren and I love to write about the TMNT! I've been a big Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles fan since the late 80's. Back then, I would watch the original animated series and play with the Playmates toys all the time. I have been following the boys ever since I was a kid, and I'm very happy to see them back in the limelight after all these years. Needless to say, I'm proud to be a member of the team on this awesome TMNT Fan Site!
