Space Suit Leonardo and Space Suit Donatello use the standard minimates sculpt, with newly tooled space suit armor that will be used for all four Turtles. Series 4 will include Leonardo and Donatello, and Series 5 will include Raphael and Michelangelo. The space suit armor is newly tooled and covers his feet, wrists, shoulders, waist, and a helmet covering his head. The helmet is removable, and both Leonardo and Donatello includes their iconic space swords and bo staff as seen in the series, and acrylic figure stands.

Dark Horizons Raphael uses the same standard minimates sculpt as previous figures that were offered, and is painted with black and red deco. This deco is based on the online action game at nick.com. Raphael includes his iconic sais that are painted in black, an acrylic figure stand, and two Kraangs that are painted in pink with black deco.

The Exco-Suit Kraang droids feature blue deco on their exoskeleton suits with dark blue on their arms, and some parts of their legs. The sculpts use the standard minimates block, but come with some of the best looking and most detailed paint apps of the wave. Their eyes are circular as seen in the series, and in their chest is the Kraang head painted on. Each Kraang droid includes a blaster, an acrylic figure stand, and a miniature Kraang head with tentacles painted in light and bright pink.

Commander Mozar features the most newly tooled parts other than the Space Suit Turtles. While he has the standard minimates block, there is a newly tooled overlay over his chest, hands, feet, and head sculpt. The head sculpt is based on the look of the Triceratops and is painted in orange deco with horns and bones, as well as a tail in the back. Since the clothing he is wearing so wide, it does limit the articulation in his shoulders. Commander Mozar comes with an acrylic figure stand.

Overall:

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Minimates Series 4 is an excellent wave from Diamond Select Toys with great likeness, deco, tooling, and accessories as seen in the series. DST continues to offer new and exciting Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Minimates and series 4 and their recently released series 5 is no exception. You won’t want to miss out on these!

Highly Recommended.
