Nope, I've seen many EBay auctions end near or below original cost, which is a money loser after fees are factored in. I practically had to give away my exclusive Mousers in order to sell the exclusive Leo at a break-even point.

Yeap...Mondo toys commanding less than original price...never thought I'd see the day and not a good sign...and who knows, will Mondo realize this and jump ship on the rest? Honestly after I saw how easy it is to snag an exclusive Leo for *less* than the standard version MSRP...I'm already off and on thinking about canceling the rest of mine and getting them at someone else's loss later...I wouldn't be having those thoughts, either, if Leo didn't have so many issues reported, which is possibly why we're all in this boat anyway.

But...they may yet knock the remaining 3 out of the park and reverse this trend, so I will probably hang in there to find out.

$150 is already a very steep price for a basic 1/6 scale action figure with no soft goods or metal materials.

So I'm not surprised that on the second marked they go for a lot less to be sold. Especially with the QC issues and delays which makes it unsure we're getting a full team. Granted the materials used may warrant the price point and it's a statue collectible company that makes them, but. When they're basically blown up action figures instead of "TMNT Hot Toys", $150 is a lot to ask for for people that didn't alrady get the preorder.

I can see the price go up when the full team is out.

It's May and I'm still waiting on my Mousers from E.E. which is very annoying. I don't know what the hold up is when I preordered them the very day they became available for preorder on their website.

As far as the rest. I don't mind waiting. Just as long as they all eventually come out.

My LCS ordered two sets from Diamond... nothing there either.

Seems the mousers are selling well on the 2ndary market but not so much for Leo.... weird.

I know not everyone is happy about these, but I am holding out. I really like the look and feel of these and even if they after market is below retail, I have my subscription in and I am really looking forward to mine.

I ordered both, my Mousers and the exclusive Raph through Mondos website and when the mousers were released it didn't take long to arrive here. Going with regular distributors might take a bit longer for these figures it seems, wildly guessed based on one figure I received.

I'm really pleased that mondo was able to refund people on these. I still have one ex Leo to keep but was happy they had great CS.

I still want my figure I already paid for, but I think for the money we paid for these were entitled to an update after 3 months of silence

I paid over 600 for my exclusives

If the rest of the figures come with the same problems that Leo had, these will be the last figures I get from Mondo

That's pretty good.
I still think that $120 is what Mondo should have priced them for. Be great if they throw in free shipping as well.

To whom it may concern, I got an email today of a pending charge notification that on the 23rd Sideshow is preparing to ship out Mondo Donatello.

It's ridiculous that I ordered Michelangelo in November 2015 and still haven't received him. Card was charged. Only received one email notifying me on a possible shipment date, and nothing since then. Not surprising the overall response to Mondo is in that gray-ish area of good, but not great.
