For those who ordered Raphael from BBTS, they are currently processing orders from February 21 as of this morning. And they are coming in waves from NECA. Unfortunately he couldn't tell me how many orders there were.

Glad people are getting their Raphs after what NECA told me about these about to be STUPID RARE!

KEEP COLLECTING!

I've asked the same question several times, still unaware of any real solution unfortunately. Totally sucks.

I have yet to find any place here in the UK selling these. I've been looking both in-store and online and it doesn't seem to be any place with them.

Doesn't NECA say those figures are meant for the US market only as long as the first batch of one went through?

Obviously I'm out of the loop on something here, so please forgive me for asking what may be obvious to many by now... why exactly is Raph about to be "stupid rare?" Donatello seemed fairly easy to get. WTF happened with Raph?

Thanks. Sounds like this is just a matter of current supply not meeting demand then. I was expecting some weird production issue of another kind meaning only so many were being made period, and then it was secondary market or bust. If there's more to be had eventually, I don't see how he's gonna be all that rare for more than just a brief period of time.

I mean is Donatello considered "rare" too right now? There's still one just sitting in the FYE where I bought mine. lol

HE HAS ARRIVED. And he is PERFECT.

Edit: And, holy crap. I know folks have been saying these things are huge, but I still wasn't prepared. This thing is as big as my torso.

Bumping this. Can people confirm this is true? This is not like a limited edition thing, it's more a matter of supply and demand for the next few months to a year (presumably because Raph is more popular?)

I have a Raph on the way, but I won't believe it until he's in my hands! Honestly my problem is Don now. I didn't know about these figures until March so only pre-ordered from from EE then and it doesn't seem like they really know when he'll be back in stock.

I've spoken with EE. They have a close working relationship with NECA. They expect their next shipment sometime in June.

Just got my Raph from BBTS yesterday. They nailed Raph. His face is spot on. He looks a lot better than Donny. Can't wait for Leo.

The face they chose for Mikey is so typical, and so bad. Hopefully Neca changes his face. I doubt it. So disappointed with what they chose for Mikey.

My Raph came yesterday from BBTS and looks amazing! I'm hoping to get a review up soon. These are bigger than I expected, which isn't a bad thing it's just tough to tell their size until you see them in person. I'm growing fond of the larger figures though! An absolute steal for $99! NECA hit it out of the park and I'm so glad I didn't hold off on these.

Just noticed Kirin Hobby changed Donnie to May as well.
