Hairdryer, then freeze for 30 min. My Shredder had the problem, and I fixed it this way.

Just came home to my set waiting for me and immediately got ready to crack it open. As soon as I seen the case in the box I started getting excited, thinking this is really here for those of us who can't enjoy comic con! Packaging inside was mint but I didn't really care these are not staying MIB like the arcade set. They are so freaking awesome they have to be enjoyed 360 degrees. My paints apps are pretty much flawless. I'm so blown away looking at them right now. My ONLY gripe and it isn't a huge one is the arm wraps on shredder being reused and not toon accurate but everything is phenomenal. I love these foot soldiers!!! Extremely pleased to say the least

I spent the entire afternoon filling orders. For the most part was very impressed with these. I did have a lot of the same gripes as the rest of you. Most sets do have derpy eyes it seems. Leo's swords stretched his scabbards and they seemed they would rip so that was that, I didn't try to force them. The turtles' hips do swivel and it is hard to move one leg without moving both of them. The joints are very tight, generally speaking. I didn't see any wrong legs or wrong feet though.

Krang's bubble walker won't sit flat; the legs are bent at awkward angles from being inside the trays. The accessories are very hard to remove from the trays without denting the plastic or cracking it.

The case was a very nice touch and if I ever started collecting loose complete vintage figures again I would use these to store them. They seem sturdier than the original.
