Just the basics, the Turtles

Leonardo The battle commander for the Turtles Released in 1988, series 1   The leader of the crew, Leonardo is known for loyalty to his family as well as his unyielding bravery in battle.

Just the basics, intro

Back in 1988, a toy company called Playmates released the greatest action figure line in toys history.
